my arms keep sliding off the desk I am so tired... i am a bobble head doll...
nick woke me up from nyquil sleep..doc needs to talk to us
computer room, x-rays, explanation
"muscles aren't designed to work that hard for that long. we don't want her body to wear itself out and quit, so we are going to give her a break by putting the breathing tube back in."
hold it together, Mandy
"this is not a set back, more like a time out so she doesn't get too tired."
That sums it up. I went back to her bedside where she eagerly hugged me. I tried to distract her from the swarm of nurses entering her room like busy bees hovering over their queen. i told her they were here to check the batteries and fix the tv. I told her the nurse was cleaning her iv port when she was really giving her the sedatives. Then Dr. Q stood from the couch where he was overseeing the busy hum, touched me on the shoulder and said, "OK Mom."
I am still reeling with Nyquil and the walk down the hallway, all alone, felt like a drunken stagger.
We are praying now and ask that you do the same. At this point, they are doing for her what she can not do by herself.
Please leave your prayers in the comment box after you lift them up to the Lord. Reading your words helps me...
