It wasn’t long after they left that she was up and hungry and eating. Usually it’s a good two to three hours after getting up that she decides to nibble on something. Coincidence? I think not! 🙂 After that she had energy and ate well all day. She even sat at the table to eat some lunch and play a round of Uno with me, something she hasn’t done since we came home from the hospital. She still spent most of her time on the couch, but she was sitting up, chatting up a storm, smiling, and playing.
My cousin Bruce encouraged us to treasure every day and look for the silver linings. We call it our “Bruce’s Silver Lining Search” and meeting Deloy and Linda, spending time in fellowship and prayer, and listening to their encouraging words was definitely our blessing and treasure for today.
Tonight was our second dressing change and I’m sad to report that it didn’t go nearly as easily as last week. It was definitely a different type of dressing that didn’t soak up the Remove. BUT there were still no tears. Bernadette just counted to five and then took a break. It took almost two hours to do the dressing change but we got it done. Marc and I are a little worried that it might be starting to get infected, but we’re keeping a close eye on it. Having it infected is the last thing any of us need right now. oy! oy! oy!
Again Marc and I thank you all for your prayers. We are and always will be eternally grateful. God bless you all!
We just wanted to tell you it was fun seeing you at Mass yesterday. Maybe we can play next time. Did you see all those toddlers there? Wow, there was a lot of them yesterday. Well, talk to you later!
Love and prayers from Auntie Sylvie xo and Uncle Carl is home from Thailand.
I’m going to see your brother Joseph on Wednesday! XO
