Deep sigh of relief, prayers of thanks have been going on for an hour now since I got the news that Christopher was out of surgery and in ICU. He will be there for about 24 hours, in the hospital for about 5 days.
I want to thank all of you ~ for all your kind words, all of your thoughts and prayers for us. I truly don't know what I would do without all you "cyber" friends out there who get just how hard this is for me. I have much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving!!
I went to the doctor today, have been feeling a little off for a couple of days, figured it was all the stress and worry about Christopher and ignored it mostly. I haven't been sick with so much as a cold for over 4 years now. Couldn't sleep the last two nights because I couldn't breathe (and I was worrying about Christopher), this morning the glands on both sides of my neck were painfully swollen, and I had a fever. I have strep as well as a possible sinus infection... yay. My doctor (who has become a great friend) said that she isn't surprised at all that I would get sick now.
So I'm off to bed, to try to get a nap in. I need to get myself better so I can enjoy eating too much on Thanksgiving and drinking too much on Fuschia Friday! (One of my best-est friends lives near Chicago, she is home for Thanksgiving, and we are having a Girl Party to celebrate all of us being together again. Black Friday is too depressing of a name, so we gave it a festive name instead!)
I hope you all have a fabulous Thanksgiving!
