I spoke with Emma this morning. They had to put Dan to sleep last night in order to get an MRI done on him. Hopefully this morning they will have results and know exactly what they are dealing with. They did say Dan has fluid build up in his legs and lower back area, and they may need to do some surgical procedure to remove the fluid. Emma asked Dan what day it was and he said thursday. He has no idea what day it is, or anything else around him, except he knows Emma and his best friend Chaz is there for him. Chaz has been with Dan since the accident. They work at the same place. The company told Chaz he is getting a paycheck every week just like usual but he doesn't have to come to the job site. His job right now is to be Emma's personal chuaffer. He is on his way to Emma's house right now to pick up a change of clothes for Emma. She's gonna shower and change her clothes then head over to the hospital.
The union put Emma up at the Sheraton Hotel in Atlantic City. She ordered room service last night, Chicken Parm. She said I really wanted a BLT mom, but it wasn't on the menu. My kid loves BLT's. If you got bacon, lettuce and tomato in your fridge, she'll be in there making a BLT, lol. She picked at the chicken parm dinner and then nursed the baby and off to sleep they both went. This morning she ordered pancakes, juice, fruit, but when it came she just picked at it. She did have coffee though. I knew she wouldn't eat much. She never does when she gets upset. I usually have to make her eat something.
My sister Helen and her husband Ron went to the hospital last night to see Dan and Emma. Helen saw Dan and said Oh my god. She was in shock of Dan's appearance. He was too drugged up to talk. He just lays there, not moving and screaming out every once in a while in pain. Then the twitching of his body would start and Emma has to call for the nurse to give Dan another injection of valium to calm him down.
I want to thank you all so very much for your prayers, good thoughts and good vibes. This means so much to me, and to Emma. And also thank you with all my heart for the cards you are sending him. I know it is going to help him knowing so many people are praying for him. If I could right now I would hug each and everyone of you. You guys are the best, the total best. And I love you dearly.
I'd better go now. I want to get ready and go to Emma's. I have to give my grandkids a bath. Bill can do Daniel's bath, but Marissa is too big for Uncle Bill to bathe so I am going over to take care of her and do her hair. I hope one night I can sleep. The past 4 days I have had a total of 15 hours of sleep. That is not good I know.
I'd better go now. I will keep you updated as I find out anything. Thank you again, for everything. You guys are the best.
I love you all...................Cindy
