YEAY!!! That is EXCITING! It's amazing how little things can seem so huge at times! I am glad that things are progressing for you. Keep up the good work and REST! LOL You know the problem with Resting all day, don't you. You never know when you are done....and when you are tired of it....how do you rest from it. Hummmmm???
Best news I've heard all day. Hooray!!
We are so glad to hear you are doing so much better!! I felt so bad I wasn't able to help Tammy when she had all your kids....I feel like Alexis is always getting sick these days! Please let us know what we can do to help you all out!
Go rachel-go Rachel-go RACHEL!You da man!!!!!!!!
I assume that this means that you've eaten your green beans?
Okay, I just read Diana's comment. Diana - "little things?" Baby!! These were NOT little things. These were consuming, terrifying, horrific, whack-you-with-a-nightmare-outa-nowhere things. Five hours without one was a big thing. Five minutes without one might have been classified as a little thing. Maybe. But a whole twelve hours? A day? TWO DAYS? THREE SCREAMIN' DAYS?? Woods - I can see the light - I can SEE IT!!
Congrats! I'm glad you are doing better.I agree with Diana. "Little things," like sleeping in your own bed, can definitely be huge.
So I'm still a bit out of the loop. I knew you were very sick (Thanks to Facebook and Kristin) but I don't really know what's going on. Does anyone (not Rachel because I'm not going to ask someone who just got out of the hospital lift a finger) want to give me an update?
I didn't mean to diminish the accomplishment. It IS a huge thing! But to say to someone "I have been seizure free for 3 days" doesn't SOUND like a big thing, but right now, IT'S ENORMOUS! And I am right there to celebrate with you! That is what I meant by my previous post! So hopefully that will explain things a bit better. Sorry for the confusion. I love you both, Rachel and Kristin.
Only you, Rachel! No one else could take an absolutely terrifying experience and turn it into hilarity online. You always seem to be able to keep amazing perspective on the reality of things. I am so thankful to be able to have this line of communication with you. Up until now I have been depending on Julianna for information. She tries her best to keep me informed in her precious seven year old way, but she has been lacking some extremely interesting details. The "mooning" story reminded me of a friend of mine long ago during my childbearing years. She was heavily nine months pregnant when she lost her balance on an escalator. Suddenly the moon was rising dramatically up through the crowds in a busy department store. Her dear husband, standing on the escalator behind her, didn't think to try and help her right herself from this terrible condition, but flailed desperately at her skirt, trying to drape her beaming posterior. Cute mental picture, huh? And you know what? The only way we remember that humiliating day now, is with wonderfully healing laughter. You've got the best medicine working for you everyday. Keep us laughing. We love you so much. Our prayers are answered and you are home. Now we'll continue to pray for your complete wellness. Gramma K - just down the street
I am doing a happy dance for you!! Only, you be a good girl and let me do the dancing...!
Go ahead..you know ya wanna comment!
