I have good news. Our daughter in law has been moved out of ICU into a regular room. Wow, what a week. She had to be put under twice for blood patches. The first one didn't work but the second one did. They put this patch on her spine where she had the spinal tap. Her headaches just got worse and worse. The spinal tap was done at the first hospital, the one close to home. They were trying to rule out meningitis. We still aren't sure why they did that . Even thought the headaches were present from the beginning this spinal tap made them worse. Makes you want to question that procedure. Now, she has to be put back on the blood thinners for three days before she can leave. She will continue the blood thinners for months to come for the healing of the carotid artery. Also very strict restrictions. It is all a big blur as far as all of us are concerned. I am sure the doctors have had to have other cases like this. Sometimes it seemed that no one could figure it out. Maybe because of the headaches. I'm not judging because we are all so thankful that she is better.
I truly believe that the prayers have been the reason that she is better. Thank you so much.
I put this little fairy garden together about 5 minutes before the open house. We had gone to church and came home to finish up things before the realtor came. I used a rusty tool box. One of the plants was barely alive but it may survive. I loved this little gnome. I will add mulch and other things. We had bits of snow yesterday. We are still a month out before we can plant.
The open house went pretty well. A couple people were really interested. But still no offers. But at the same time there are no condos in our little town that are for sale. Hoping something comes up when we finally get an offer. I have been glad that there haven't been showings this week. We barely made it through the open house. It's hard to focus on other things when you have a family member is ICU.
Now, I need to figure out where I was when this all started. I need a restart button.
Again, thank you all for your prayers. The little girls have done so well. I am so proud of them. They had two sets of grandparents and their aunt and uncle and two cousins to reassure them that they were loved.
