Sorry, readers, but I must report that Wyandotte Hospital is still our home. So that’s the bad news. Good news is that Amanda had a good day. She looked wonderful (thanks to her morning shampoo) and has been up in her wheelchair all day. They had her on 3 liters of Oxygen for the past week – they squeaked it down to 2 liters to see if she could do well with that – and has done fine all day. She ate a good breakfast, noshed on Cheetohs and diet coke in the afternoon, had a cup of ice cream, and we are now waiting for Ted to bring in dinner. Tonight we are dining on SUSHI! There happens to be a fairly good sushi place near Wyandotte Hospital and once we go to Children’s Hospital in Dee-troit we won’t be browsing the neighborhood for food. The medical center rather stands alone with no restaurants nearby.
I want to shout out a big thank you to Cathy Tuxbury – a church choir friend. She came by to visit today with lots of healthy stuff – apples, bananas, and oranges plus bottles of water, diet coke for Amanda, and some naughty but delicious powder sugar dusted German walnut cookies. (I’ve eaten two already – and they are big!) Cathy and I talked and visited for over two hours. Thanks, Cathy, for breaking up our day with you visit! <3
So, in the words of Goethe: we are trying to "Enjoy what you can; endure what you must."
All is well for now. Hope all is well for y'all.
Thanks for reading.
