We want to thank everyone for their kind comments (even the silly ones!), thoughts and prayers. It was a roller coaster week. It was bad and we did come close to losing her but with God's help, we got through this part of the problem. There are many issues we have to deal with yet and we are looking at them in a positive way. She will no doubt have some surgery next week if she is strong enough. Right now she is extremely weak so rest is in order and rest she will get. Naturally I had to make a few funnies out of this. We hoped she would come home on Tuesday but that got delayed. Wednesday then was the target date but one more test and some more antibiotics to put into her. So I got on their case because Judy has only 2 sinks and both of the danged things are full. If they don't release her, where will I put the dirty dishes? I also want to inform some that I did not sit on a milk crate while in the hospital nor did I check the tongue depressors for dryness although that probably should have been done. And the only stacking she will do is to stack the dishes. I do not allow her to stack wood. She is terrible at that. So for now, we are together again.
