I know it's a mess but it's a work in progress
I never realized how rattled I am these last weeks til I realized when I was visiting Megan that she was in a new hospital.I know she went by ambulance to this new facility but I just thought it was a rehab center. I realized a couple days ago that when I went to the cafeteria and realized that her building is just the physical rehab side of the hospital. I had just thought it was a separate building not the hospital.It's funny how your mind works all I could focus on was the room she was in and the nurses and every one coming in and out of the room all day and night.The drive home seemed so long and feeling so helpless but praying always.
The hospital is in a beach town that is known for being an artsy type of community.As I would drive I could see the ocean moments before I got there and that would be my moments to see something of beauty during the day.
I have never been so impressed by the mind body total care she has received. Every day she has improved and yesterday she called me and told me that for physical therapy the Pt therapist took the wheel chair along just in case she got tired but they walked across the street and had an ice cream. My daughter saw a nail shop next door so hubby was given the clearance to go with her again for some more walking PT and get her nails done.
Megan has fought like a honey badger to get home! I am putting on the face of the honey badger today to finish his story of fighting and plugging away when your on fumes.
When my daughter got MS it was bad but this was the worst exasperation! I did not go into all the crisis situations we were in a couple weeks ago but to have her going home and able to walk is miraculous. She was so very very sick. I recall this Japanese woman therapist that would do a therapy called Healing touch that was the only thing that could get her to sleep during the day and out of pain.
My daughter had a field trip one day to the library that overlooks the ocean. Things like going up a step to get in the bus was a challenge knowing what leg to use when going up stairs or down stairs. Simple things we don’t think of. Monday last week was art class where she learned to draw a beautiful apple which helped with her hands.A local artist volunteers his time to teach a class.
Today she called to tell me how her physical therapist took her and my hubby to the beach and to a beautiful garden up the coast. I think it’s been about three weeks since she’s been home.
My Megan has definitely turned the corner. So Tuesday with the help of so many prayers from friends and bloggers Megan is going home to baby and Aunt Jane who lives with them and her hubby. What a happy Valentines Day it will be for all of us.
My wool crazy quilt just keeps on growing
P.S Megan if you read this some day I know you hate me talking about you and MS but I have never been so proud of you,hugs to all Cheri
