Hello everyone. I am home from the hospital...and that is a great feeling. I wish I could do a little more--I know I will improve, but right now it is all I can do to walk from my room to our family room. However, my family keeps cheering me on, like I'm running a marathon...mabye in my own little way, I am!
Wow--what can i say? You have all been so loyal and caring through our hospital experience. I can't thank you enough for waiting until late at night to read the latest posts from Spence. You not only read them, but commented so often on them--that means so much. Spence would keep me daily informed on what each person said, and that was so touching to me. Didn't Spence do great on the blog? He is so good at explaining things, and he always adds a little bit of his crazy humor. He is a good writer--now you'll have to put up with me again. :) It is time for Spence to go back to work, and not be full-time nurse and caregiver. Our daughter, Emily, is here from Utah, just till tomorrow. It is wonderful to have her here, and to be back home with Kelsey and Brady. I am so thankful to have my family around me--wish they all could be here, but I'm just glad for who can be here. Tomorrow Spence's sister, Nancy is coming to help for the week. I am so spoiled.
Thank you for your prayers also as we've gone through this. Spence was pretty positive in all his posts, but I definitely had my down and discouraged times. Knowing that so many people were praying that I could feel peace and comfort was a huge help. You are like a huge family to me--giving love, encouragement and support every step of the way. I will be writing more--but just wanted to say that I do not miss having my vitals taken eveery 4 hours, or being poked and prodded. I may move slow...but thank heavens i am HOME!! Love to all, Louise
