God's Word for Today

Saturday, May 23, 2009

We’re going hooooommmmmeeee!


If all goes well w should hit the home front in a few hours. I am not sure what the time table is ortall than needs to happen but they are releasing the DD today.

 

I have to tell you, after six days in the hospital I for one and ready for my own bed, my own shower, my own food, my own coffee, my own everything.

 

I long to sleep in a room and know that no one will tap on our door at 2:00 in the morning to ask the DD to wiggle her toes or check her temperature.

 

We anticipate a difficult few weeks as she adjusts to a new normal. She will have to learn how to compensate for the difference in her back as well as re-learning how to do specific things.

 

For the first few days (maybe longer) I will have to set the alarm thru the night to administer medication to help with her pain level but that is completely manageable.

 

We have gotten into the zone as far as working together to get her out of bed and to the potty and back in again. Basically she can achieve most of this all on her own, I am just the steady hand of support. 

She is a ROCK STAR y’all at how well she had met this difficult challenge.

 

Once home I hope to have a bit more time to put together a few post and visit all my favorite bloggy friends.

 

I am so ready to be at home!

 

Blessings

Robin

woo to the who!!
you go girl!!
Watch out world, here comes DD!
Want some fries with that shake??
Hang on, Buster, Mama's comin' home!!

"Here 'she'comes, walking down the street
'She' gets the funniest looks from everyone 'she' meets...

Hey, hey, 'she's headin' home now'
And people say 'she' monkeys around,
'She's too busy gettin' better
To put anybody down"

[Thought you needed a song to get you on the road... ;)]

Yay! Hallelujah! So glad to get the good news! For some weird reason I cannot access the CarePages from my hubby's computer which is the only one with internet connection out here in the boonies. So I had not been able to keep up with what's been happening since about noon yesterday. But I kept praying :-)

Enjoy that shower, coffee and bed in your own home!

Soooooo happy for all of you. You have just spent one of the hardest weeks of your life, as you know, and coming home will be a tonic to your spirit. Here's to a great recovery!

LOL, at skoots song comment. :-D

Welcome home DD and Robin. I'll be praying for a quick recovery and peace and patience.

6 days is a long time to spend in a hospital. Blech! And not very restful.

God Bless!
