Choose Life

H1, H2, & Big Boy Life on the (L)edge

Begun in the aftermath of Katrina, this blog was a way to keep family and friends updated as the family struggled to return to a semblance of normalcy. Now, more than four years later, the memories are still strong, the family is, to some extent, scattered. However, life did go on, and this is our story.

CAPTAIN'S LOG: STAR DATE [-4] 84014.87 10:14:45

It's been an interesting week at Tulane Medical Center, to say the least! H2 is coming home today!! Right now DIL1 (back from Houston for the weekend) and Linda are with him, waiting for the doctors to come and sign his release. Let's hope there are no more setbacks.

Yesterday, a week after he had been in the hospital (for the second time) a nurse came by to scan his bracelet. She said she needed to make sure he was wearing the correct one, not one from the ER. This is the bracelet that they had been scanning for the past seven days, every time they administered meds, or took vitals, or whatever!!! So the day before he's to be released they want to make sure it's the right one??!?!??

Thursday evening I got H2 up to walk around the hallway. I thought we'd kind of shuffle along, with me in front, and him holding my shoulder to steady himself. Hah!! The next thing I know he was cruising down the hallway with me trying to keep up!! Apparently he can walk pretty darn good once he gets up. The hard part is the getting up. He still has to practice sitting, and standing from a sitting position. Those are very difficult for him. He's learning to use different muscles while his back is on the mend.

KenEllie came by to see H2 last night. It was a nice visit. Hopefully they'll stop by the house after Mass this evening to check on his progress at home. H2 enjoys the company and, of course, we're always glad to see them.

This past week was a doozy! I was sick, H1 was sick, DIL1 was sick, Molly Grace was sick, Major Dad was sick, KenEllie were sick, H2, well, you know his condition... what a beginning to a new year!

Until next time... God's graces and love be with you!!!!
