In her own words, "Today was a bad day."
That's how it is, I guess. A couple steps forward, a step or two back.
She specifically requested that I tell you how desperately she wishes to respond to you. Last night at about two o'clock in the morning she was up reading your comments. She was so moved by your words that she began to type. And then her nurse came in. She asked what Mom was doing that was making her heart go crazy. And so she had to put the computer away. She expressed to me that she would be responding to each of you individually at this moment if it were possible. She is so grateful. I thank you.
Today I found out that she won't be home before Monday. They may push it back further depending on her progress. I learned that she will need help and monitoring for considerable time following her return home. I'm not sure how long that will be. We are blessed to have her mom, Grandma Glennda (the good witch of the North, we call her) here to help. I so wish I could be here to help her indefinitely. My kids are just too darn noisy. We may actually have to stay away to help her heal.
I have to express my gratitude here for the people who have watched my "little terrorists" so I can be with my mom. I am so very grateful. Thank you. You have blessed me so much.
Below are the pictures I promised.
The following are from yesterday.
This is from tonight. She's in more pain than she was yesterday.
Again. Thank you for your prayers. Thank you for your love and your friendship. Thank you for everything.
