A Quiet Day

Today is a nice and quiet day. Dr. T came in a few times to check on Bailey. They're now treating her for a urinary tract infection. Just another something to add to her many experiences. The hospital looks like it did yesterday - deserted. McDonald's is closed until Monday afternoon for some major repairs of some kind and with the holiday -- it's gonna be a long weekend.

No word about when we might be going home. They've learned not to say, and we've learned not to ask. Just taking one day at a time.

We hear it's cold outside. I lay by the window at night and I do notice it getting a little cooler by the window. We heard it snowed a little bit yesterday too. I think I'm going to have a little difficulty getting into the holiday spirit this year. Having missed out on the traditional Thanksgiving, I'm not ready to jump right in to Christmas. Boy, we woke up this morning to all the hullaballoo on the news about the millions of shoppers out there today for Black Friday. I have to admit that I've never been one to shop the day after Thanksgiving. I'm not a big shopper, and that must be why. I know what Santa's bringing Bailey this year -- shirts that fit! Ha!

She's doing incredibly well. She still has her chest tubes - they're still draining. Dr. T says he fully expected for her to have her chest tubes in longer than normal since she had so much fluid on her. They turned the epinephrine off this morning. So, continuing to whittle away at all the tubes and lines. Yeah! Slow and steady - that's the way we like it.

Have a great evening! We're going to watch the lighting of the Christmas tree on TV. We'll look out the window to see if we can see a glow. Ha!

Talk to you later.

Dear Angie:

I've started this message three times and keep erasing it. I just want you to know how very special you are to so many people. In all the years I've known you, you have been an inspiration with your faith and unfailing efforts to get things done - from taking such conscientious care of Bailey and also being there for Josie, Marissa and Tom, helping co-workers with their problems, aiding others in foreign lands who are not as fortunate, not to mention being such a friend. You are so special and so loved.


P.S. I know you are not 100% perfect because I've seen you simmer and explode !!!! Just maybe that does make you perfect.

Angie Good to hear that you are having a couple of quiet days with Bailey just healing slow and steady. I got just a tiny glimpse yesterday of how helpless you feel watching your child in pain. Daniel had all his wisdom teeth pull. His lips were all bloody and his mouth was swollen. It was very unsettling to know there was nothing I could do but hand him some gauze and offer water. He is improving nicely and spent most of yesterday just playing the play station. It did get him out of working at Meijer’s with all those crazy shoppers.
As always Bailey and your family will continue to be in my prayers.
