Not unlike the weather's unpredictability of late, Ken's overall progress continues to baffle and confuse me. Thankfully, we have enjoyed the opportunity to stay at home without any emergency runs to the hospital!!
We breathe a sigh of relief every time a feeding is "contained", and smile broadly when another pain medication is set aside. But, the healing timetable that lay ahead has no schedule.
Every day we take care to document every movement, every infusion, every grimace...
We wait (we should be good at this by now) and we watch and we HOPE!! It will come together all at once, that's what we're told. But, as to when this will occur, it's a crap shoot at best.
While we have no idea what tomorrow will hold, we take some comfort in the knowledge that there are some aspects of the Alward household that will be trending toward the positive in very short order. At this point, we stand humbled and grateful for the extreme generosity of family and friends!!
I have decided that when Ken is better and people ask what we will do next, the answer will be SLEEP!!
Perhaps at Disney World???? HAHAHAHAAAAA!
This was taken shortly after we moved into our home in Pennsylvania. So many happy memories...
So, smile whenever you think of Ken this week. You gotta know he's smiling when he thinks about y'all...
