Another Week, A Close Call...

Howdy y'all,
Lou was discharged last Friday and I got a call in the middle of the night from Terri that Lou was completely out of it and didn't respond to her. So, I went over there and Lou had taken apart the rail of her hospital bed and crawled to the recliner in the living room without her prosthetic legs on. Ended up in the recliner, breaking the recliner and didn't know why she did it or where she was. So after convincing Terri, I called 911 and she ended up back in the ICU where her levels were way off. She is physically doing better, but her mental status is still a concern. So please say a few prayers for her as she has a long road ahead of her. At least she's still recognizing everyone but she gets very scared and wants to go home. I don't blame her. I wish, I wish, I wish...
Haven't gotten to spend as much time as I'd like with the gal pal. She has been a solid rock for me in that she has been so incredibly patient with me and everything that is going on with my family. She has been so understanding and encouraging... I really don't know where I'd be without that woman... She has been such a blessing to me. She has absolutely no idea just how amazing and beautiful she truly is... People ask me sometimes how I deal with all of the stress in my life. That's easy. I lean on God, and I depend on my honey... and somehow, someway, I manage to put one foot in front of the other and even smile while I do it...

That is a close call indeed, Mik. Hope things are looking up by now.
