Wednesday Evening

Mike here once again. Thanks for the prayers and positive energy everyone! Lisa was finally sleeping when I arrived at the hospital at 5:30 tonight. A while later however she was fitfully fading in and out of sleep, still in discomfort, and crying a lot. Later yet after Linda left and she was fully awake, I was able to get her calmed down and she ate three chicken nuggets and french fries. Yea! She probably would have eaten more if I had them.

The "best part" came 47 minutes later when... well.. you know that sound an almost empty bottle of ketchup makes when you give it a good squeeze? The sound that makes all the kids stop what they're doing and giggle? The sound that makes the over 60 crowd sweat, stop and look for the nearest restroom? Uh hu. This bottle had been sealed up for 6 days... it's empty now. I can't imagine more coming out. Unfortunately she was still in bed at the time of "The Great Purge". Two nurses and 25 minutes later we had our noticeably lighter patient cleaned up and dressed again. There are still some "tremors" but she's noticeably more comfortable. Ahhh, life is good. Thanks again!

That's great news. Bet you're glad the nurses were there. Have a good night.

Thoughts and prayers from the sisters of Kappa Alpha Theta at Case! I read the blog everyday and update my sisters who ask about Lisa all the time. Tomorrow we are making fleece blankets for children at Rainbow Babies Children's Hospital in Cleveland... maybe one will go to a little girl like Lisa!

I can't wait to come home and see everyone for Thanksgiving.

God Bless,
Laura
