Recovery Day One

"You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience by which you really stop to look fear in the face.  You are able to say to yourself, 'I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes my way"
-Eleanor Roosevelt


Here is what I know.  She had a rough pain filled night but that seems to be getting under control. The tube was removed this afternoon and she has had a couple sets of X-rays.  While I am typing she is getting ready to be discharged. (yippie) I am sure she will feel better in her own bed with several people lovingly taking care of her.  Not that the hospital staff was lacking but you get my meaning.

Funny story…. Monday morning I get a panicked text from Alli telling me she can't put on lotion or chapstick.  It should have been written in ALL CAPS because I know she was freaking out. Between us two we corner the market on chapstick…. its a obsession.  So I put on chapstick and lotion and text her back to tell her it would be ok that I put it on for her.

I will update you all tomorrow.

where she goes you go…. and right now thats HOME



  1. Oh geez! I'm right there with you guys! I have lotion and my burt's bees within arms reach at all times! Sending my love and lots of healing vibes.

  2. You are the best sister by far!

  3. So glad she's home!!!!

    Thanks for these updates!
