The past few days that I have been home have been very hard. I want to be at the hospital but I know I need to be here at home. With every piece of good news there always seems to be something else bad happening to his body. I have cried an ocean of tears over this. I have such a tension headache that the pain has started to travel into my shoulder. I feel like such an ass for even complaining when there is so much going wrong with him. 

I try very hard to look on the positive side of things. His temp is slowly coming down. His tummy is starting to work again through medical intervention. He is responsive to verbal commands such as squeeze my hand, hold up two fingers and wiggle toes, on his left side when he is not being sedated. 

But as always there is a but....

He still has the breathing tube in. He appears to be paralyzed on his right side. There are a few other things that the doctors are concerned about that I would rather not speak of on here.

Grim and I are suppose to be going away this weekend, but we may end up at the hospital instead. Just have to wait and see what the doctors have to say in the morning. This wait and see thing is not good for someone who has no patience... LOL!

I did start a new project, gave me something to do in the hospital. I got two skeins of Fisherman's Wool from Lion Brand Yarns in Nature's Brown. They will become legwarmers for me. I use to love legwarmers back in the day. I am so happy that they have come back in style. Once these are done I will probably wear them long after they go out of style again. LOL! I've got about 8 inches done on one of them. I can't wait to get one of them done.... Nope no pattern. 48 cast on and then 2k, 2p row one - 2p, 2k row two repeat to desired length. Hopefully, they fit.

It takes a long time to recover from this Yart, as I am sure the doctors have told you and the family. What you are reporting is really good news tho', he sounds like a strong man and he has the added bonus of a very supportive and loving family.

Try to have patience. I know it is hard, but the longer the time passes the stronger he will be. You'll see.

Can't wait to see the legwarmers. I love mine so much! Oh, I forgot - you don't post pics - oops - okay...I can't wait to hear all about the finished product!! :D The wool sounds yummy.

Take care. We are sending good thoughts and prayers your way. Hang in there friend.
