All's Well, I Hope...

"Don't you ever ask them why.  If they told you, you would cry. So just look at them and sigh. And know they love you."  ~Graham Nash 

Sorry for the lack of update. I think when the body, mind, and soul goes through a trauma,  it manifests a psychosomatic response. My daughter was discharged from the hospital last Saturday and I started feeling rotten and had been nursing a nasty cold since then.

My daughter went to a follow up visit yesterday and was pronounced well and on her way to full recovery. She was told not to over-exert herself and rest when she is tired. She is still on various meds for the next 2 weeks but the Doc thinks she will be able to resume her hard charging teenage life in about 4 or 5 weeks. For now, she will be staying home with me until I can fatten her up. She looks a tad too emaciated at this time.

She went to school today. I drove her to her first class this morning. I told her that it is OK if she feels tired after the first one or second one and to call me to pick her up if she started feeling unwell. So far, so good. She has not called yet.  

Thank you to all those who sent their best wishes, hugs, and prayers through blog comments, e-mails and phone calls. You guys are the best!

AH I Wish I had known my alerts still dont work. I m going to click on the alerts button again. Now that they are done with making changes this week maybe this time It will work. Im glad shes better but yes the stress can wear you out and make you sick. Take some cold ease they helped I got them at walmart and mucinex worked great too. I also used the steam personal vaporeizor twice a day I got it at walmart. Thegirls dr said those things work wonders the heat and steam right in the nostrels kills the bacteria. Didyou notice we have spell check now in our journals. HOW cool is that?????
