Day #14- ICU (Up and Around)
My wife was up out of bed today and walking around a little. This is fantastic news in regards to eventually getting home. Way to go babe.
My mom and dad are amazing. They woke up early today and brought my kids up to see me before they left to go with Grandma and Grandpa Millett for a week long stay. The kids had a lot of fun today. We ate in the cafeteria, played outside on the grass, and had ice cream. I can't even begin to describe how wonderful it was to have almost all my babies around me. In fact the kids got a special treat today. My wife was able to make it to her outside window which is on the second floor. The kids were abel to wave to her and yell up that they loved her. She was able to yell down that she loved them and have a short conversation with a couple of the kids. I loved watching it. I know my wife was feeling a little down because she misses holding all her babies.
This evening we had a friend from Nevada stop by and see us on her way to her 10 day cruise. It has been 6 years since we have seen each other. She used to volunteer in my classroom all the time. It was nice to visit and catch up. I was also able to visit Colter and Becky and wash my laundry and enjoy their company. (Thanks for letting me come over again!).
I know this is a shorter post, but I am exhausted and it is after 2am. Thanks to everyone for your thoughts, love, and prayers. They are felt and really making a difference. I will elaborate on how we are not out of the woods yet later. The nurse gave us some information tonight that might set us back a bit, but I am not worried. I feel at peace when I think about my wife and her recovery. I love you babe! I am SO proud of how well you did with your Physical Therapy today! Keep it up.
