I left Angie a little while ago, tucked away in another hospital bed… word is that she’s likely going to be there for another day or two. It’s good to know she’s being cared for, but very hard on all of us to have her away again. Today a specialist came to take a look and seemed pleased with her progress so far, and blood work showed that the infection hasn’t spread to her bloodstream. That’s very good! She is in pain and feels pretty rotten, and didn’t get much sleep last night. Today they moved her roommate though, so hopefully she’ll be able to rest tonight.
Overall she’s not in great spirits. It’s very hard to deal with this so close on the heels of her radioactive iodine treatment. Again she’s alone and sick; again we’ve had to delay getting back to a ‘normal’ routine. The kids are dealing with it pretty well, but they miss her a lot. All of them have verbalized it, and all of them are a little out of sorts. We are praying that Mommy will come home tomorrow so we can take care of her!
