Lisa's home & Jamie Lee Curtis was awesome

Lisa had a great night last night (except for the constant beeping of her machines from 12:30-2:30 due to technical problems...grrr) and her morning was a good one. Matt met us at the hospital at 10:00 this morning and we were able to get Lisa discharged. Matt took Lisa to do some Halloween shopping. She did pretty good, but after walking around for a while, she threw up a little bit and than immediately asked for chicken nuggets. Matt, doing what any of us would do, put her in the car, got her chicken nuggets and fries and brought her home to watch a movie. She ate her fries and 2 chicken nuggets...not the healthiest of meals, but it's more than what she's eaten in the last 2 days!

In the mean time, I was being entertained by Jamie Lee Curtis. She was very energetic and animated and shared some wonderful tidbits about her past and how she became an author. When she signed my book, she graciously accepted a Lisa bracelet and asked Lisa's age, diagnosis and if she was in a children's hospital. In my short minute with Jamie, I assured her Lisa was getting excellent care and that we'd tried to arrange for Jamie to make a stop at the hospital, but her schedule was too tight. Jamie and I took a picture together and she gave me a squeeze and told me to take care of my little girl. I think she may have even said she liked my hair---or maybe I was just putting words into her mouth seeing how we both sport similar styles now!!Who knows, maybe Jamie will find the time to check out the blog... Jamie...if you do read this, be sure to sign the guest book and add us to your prayers!

So all in all a good day so far including having beautiful weather here in MI. Everyone enjoy...Lisa and I are gonna take a nap!

Jamie, if you read this- I am jealous that you have a Lisa bracelet and don't! ;)
