Anything is possible
heart transplant, inspirational story, organ transplant
That's seems to be the big question that we just can't get the answer to. Yesterday when the doctor came in, of course we asked and he seemed to be nervous about giving an answer. Lauren's weigh as they call it, it's stable. Not good though. With all the different medications that Lauren is on, she should be losing fluid weight.
It just hit me that Christmas is only a week away. Normally I would have my total house all decorated, tree up, gifts wrapped, cookies made and we do a little something for our neighbors, a baked good or homemade candies as a thank you for all the help they give us over the year. The one thing I am the most upset with is that one day, Lauren and I and my granddaughter Maddie make christmas cookies. We have the best time. Especially when we have our flour fight. It's the one time it's all about fun. Maddie loves it, just being a kid and having fun.
My son Mikey, Katie and Maddie came up yesterday for a family day. It's the only day they have off together for their family day, and they make it a point to come see us. I told Maddie, if we can't make it home for Christmas we will have a cookie day when we finally do go home. My son was funny, he was trying to figure out how we could do it here in the hospital. He mentioned Maddie's Easy Bake Oven. Katie looked at him and said "really". He was trying, but I don't think it would be the same.
If we can't make it home for Christmas, I was thinking I would love to go home for a day and pack up some of the gift I bought so we can wrap them here. Not sure on how to get home, plus I really don't want to leave Lauren alone. Things change up here so fast.
So much on my mind, hopefully we will have some answers today. Didn't sleep at all last night, my mind was on overload. Hopefully I can post later on today with our plan. Last night I had my training on how to do the dressing change on Lauren's Hickman Line.
Lauren's Hickman Line.
Well, I hope I can post some good news later on today.
Have a great day everyone
