Status Update: Going Home!

20 02 2012

Rough weekend, but also, a quick turnaround. Saturday was one of those days when you’re so sick, you wonder if you’re ever going to feel good again. Lonnnggg day that left me, my family, and my docs wondering if I was going to be here a while.

Thank God the answer was NO! Sunday I did a complete 180 and made great progress. It amazes me what an incredible machine the human body is.

It’s been steady progress since then, so I was given the nod this morning — I’m GOING HOME!!! They are working on the discharge paperwork right now and my bff Kristi Rugh Kahl is here to take me home. She spent the night, brought pillows and blankets, and we made it a sleepover!

Thank you for all of your prayers. I could feel them covering me like a big, fluffy down blanket the whole weekend through. More soon…

I’m so happy you are going home. I know how the walls can close in on you especially during the dreary winter months. I found a hobby during my times stuck in the house with my chemo treatments….I did Creative Memories and organized my pictures. It was a good way to reflect on my life and all the good memories and not focus on the difficult times…I’m adding your name to our team prayer page as well as my personal prayer list.

Amy….remember as you are having this impossible roller coaster ride, that it always returns just fine….of course its after the many jogs and rattles and swoops that have to come first. Than all is well. Love always, Mom Reet
