Yup That's Me....

 
 
 
 
 
Yup!!  That's me.  Poking my head out after a rather scary week.  Thank you all so much for your kind thoughts and prayers.  Those of you who sent me texts, sometimes later at night when you suspected I might be suffering from worry and fear...  You are the bestest!!!
 
 
We had some very scary moments over the last weekend and week.  There was a moment or two that I was not sure Daddy was going to make it, but God is good!!!  All the time.  Daddy made a miraculous turn around (doctor's words) and he was released from ICU on Thursday.  He is doing so amazingly well, that there is a possibility that he can come home on Monday, slim, but there none the less. 
 
 
The Man left on Wednesday as did my oldest son, who flew in on Friday.  Could I have done this by myself?  Yes, but you have no idea (well, maybe you do) how amazing it was to have The Man here.  Saturday Night, when I came home, so weary and scared to death and heart sick, he cuddled me up and said the most amazing thing.  He said, " Little Girl, I can't do a thing about what is going one with your Dad, but I can take care of you if you will let me.  When you need something, wake me and I will get it for you." 
 
Is he amazing or what?  My children have all rallied around not only my folks, but me.  My Pixie called me, and asked how things were, and I told her.  She said, "I am glad to know about my grands, but I was asking about my Mom.  I want to know how you are."  All of my sons gathered around, leaving notes on the white board telling me they love me.  My family is an amazing force.
 
So, today is Saturday, and well, I am taking the day off.  I talked with Daddy and he is good with me not going today.  I slept till 11am and I am going to read for a bit, and then think about laundry and my house.  After I think about it for a while, I may do something about it... :)

    1. I don't know that decompress is the right word as much as comatose...

  6. Hi Dana,

    Sooooo happy your Dad is doing better! :0) Praise God, he is VERY good!! Glad your family is lifting you up and taking care of you so well. Still give yourself time to catch up and let them continue to take care of you before you go into super woman mode as we all often tend to do after the crisis has passed.

    Hugs,
    Irish Lucky

  7. I am so happy for you. What really touched me though was your daughter, sons, and husband's support for you. Keeping all of you in my prayers. And I am glad to read that your dad came home. (comment above)
