Greetings from Hermitville...

I need some relief from being home. I feel like a complete hermit since Wed. I've been trying to slowly call people back in between pain medication rounds. Sometimes I'm just so out of it I can't even talk. Mom is staying one more day with us so hopefully tomorrow I'll make a really quick recovery. Luke seems to not be feeling good. He's been really cranky and coughing at night. I've been giving him Triaminic cough and cold every night. Nana, I think the Dr's. office spread something to him on Fri. Mom and Jason have been taking good care of me. I've eaten more popcicles and mugs of chicken broth than I want to remember. Next week I "graduate" to mashed potatoes, cottage cheese, sugar free pudding. Whooooohooo! I'm really not hungry at all but you have to keep up your protein and carbs for energy or its not a good thing.

Guess what, my sweet niece gets to finally come home tomorrow. She's 4 lbs. 8 oz. and drinks from her bottle like a big girl. I'm so happy for my sis and Mike that they get to bring home their sweet girl after 3 mos. in the NICU. Thank you for all your prayers for sweet Emery.

Rabbit...trail...today Luke started singing a church song out of the blue we were amazed. They must have sang it this morning in church. It was Ho, Ho, Hosanna, Hah, Hah, Hallelujah, He, He, He he saved Me, I've got the joy of the Lord.

Well, my energy is out....gotta go lay down. More tomorrow.

Heather

I just got my computer back (thanks Best Buy for keeping 2 weeks)....I had lots of blogs to catch up on. So happy to hear you are home and recovering okay. Now that I know I will be praying for a quick recovery as you are dealing with holidays, changes, and a young energetic Luke! Take care of yourself! Stacey C.
