Life can be blissfully sweet sometimes. I personally love it when things just fall into place in a really lovely pattern. I have said before how this blog has become almost like a personal journal to me and with that I have had to almost be careful how personal I get with my comments because sometimes I forget that the whole world can see what I am writing:) But right now I am so happy that I don't care what I write or what I say! HAHA I just want to scream it from the mountain tops, or at the very least the top floor of my hotel room!
David is taking a nap and I am supposed to be working on some projects on the computer but blogging seemed so much more appealing right now! I am glad he is resting, he hasn't been sleeping well at night and last night we had a minor scare. Jolting me back to the fact that we really aren't totally out of the woods and we never really will be. But that is ok, we have the mighty healer on our side and I am good with that. David's ankles started to swell up last night and they kept swelling as the night wore on and pretty soon he just didn't feel good at all and he no longer felt good enough to sit in a chair, he had to lay down. He and my brother both said they wanted me to call the doctor, this was at about 10pm last night. The doctor was fantastic on the phone, she had me take his vitals (b/p, temp. weight) all were fine so she said just to have him stay off his feet, stay away from sodium and high liquids, and mainly just rest until they see him Thursday. It was a relief but again a reminder that we still have to be very careful with his precious life that we have been given a second chance with.
Today my sister Sarah came down to visit with him and while he and my brother were busy on their computers she suggested that she and I go across the street and get lunch. At first I was hesitant, but I am so glad that I did it. What a blessing it was to get out in the fresh air and really have a nice hour outside of the hotel room and in a non hospital environment with another being that wasn't hospital personnel! Plus I got some sister time which I don't get very often, it was truly a special hour for me and I think she knew I needed it. I felt 100% better after that and much more recharged! I can now take on the world, just give me a cape and a tiara!
Shortly after that Doug's dad and sister arrived again for one last visit before heading back out of town. David enjoyed visiting with both of them, but was a lot more tired today. I know they were both glad to see him and I can only imagine how hard it has been for them to be so far away this whole time, so I am glad that they finally got to spend some time with him. After they left my brother Ricky also decided that his visit must also come to an end, so he packed up and left as well.
So now it is just the two of us. I am glad he is resting up, his body needs it. Tomorrow is our first "clinic" day, and the first day he will be poked and prodded. We have labs at 8am, clinic at 9am, then xrays, an echo, and his first biopsy to get done. Then on Friday we have to go back for him to get a special IV drug infusion that will take between 4-5 hours. So we have busy days ahead of us.
