Michelle has not been out of the hospital in over two weeks, and has only left THE ROOM a few times. Some of our wonderful friends are keeping the kids tonight, and Michelle's Mom (a nurse too) is going to go sit with Abby at the hospital... so we can go out on one of those thingies... where two people do something... ummm... uhhhh... a dart... a dame... A DATE! That's it! A date!
Thanks makes twice this year... we are getting plum spoiled.
We'll leave in a couple of hours, and we might not even Twitter or blog during out date... maybe.
Our Colored Tongue Wall
We're creating a quite a fun collage on the wall for Abby. Can you spot your picture yet? We've got more room if you want to send one.
Here's video of Abby talking to MeeMaw on the phone, doing her best dramatic Southern Belle "thank you, oh thank you" and finally, deciding she is going to the beach and needs sunscreen in her ears!
You'll notice that Abby talks slow, and in a squeaky voice. The "slow" part is mostly from the morphine and other medications. The chemo partially paralyzes her vocal chords producing the nasally squeaky thing. But we don't care... she's so stinking cute and funny anyway.
Update From Michelle:
Abby is tired today, sleeping a lot, but doing pretty well. Her WBCs are still not recovering, but they are showing some early signs they may start. Abby's pain is much better managed today. Thankfully the change in medications was a great one for Abby.
We are really just in a holding pattern, no changes. Just supporting Abby, keeping her comfortable while we wait for her body to heal.
I can't wait to get out of this room for a few hours tonight but I'll really miss Abby.
