I am stunned!

I can't believe how well Lisa is doing today. It is so awesome!!!! I wasn't really sure what to expect...but this is a wonderful reprieve.

Yesterday was pretty rough. Lisa just didn't feel good, she's was nauseous and achy and whiny. By the time Mike relieved me, I wasn't sure who was more whiny...her or me....I couldn't take it anymore. I really questioned how I was going to last for the next two weeks.

But today is great. When I opened the door to the room, I expected the moans and groans and the "hospital smell" of the sick. I was stunned when Lisa beamed "hello", a big smile was in place of the groans and the smell of creamed corned replaced the hospital smell. I was even more shocked when she ate a pretzel and drank some water. Wow...this was totally unexpected.

The nurse was just talking with me and commenting on how good Lisa was doing, but again cautioned that things are going to get worse before they get better. So...I going to the get the most out of tonight....what a difference a week has made....it's so nice to have good day!

Beautiful! I'm so glad you hit that happy current--even if for a day. It is all part of the ebb and flow, yes?

Sending much love and warmth,
