Purple is the color I use when I am happy. And today I am very happy. Did you see who is home above in the pictures? One week ago today this man fell off the side of a building, and today he is home with his family. Let someone, anyone tell me there is no God to hear our prayers and they will hear me roar. You all along with family and other close friends sent up prayers for my SIL and God heard you/us. This man is a walking miracle. To everyone who sent up prayers for Dan, I thank you and his wife and children thank you. You guys are the best there is, and don't ever forget that. If I could right now I'd hug each and everyone of you. YOU GUYS ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Dan was released from the hospital because they said beings it was a trauma center there was really no more they could do for him. He will be having a therapists come to the house 3 times a week, to help him in his walking and climbing stairs, and excercises. He has to use a walker to walk with, and wears a back brace that wraps around his ribs. He is on Oxycodone, Flexoril and those pain patches (forgot the name of them). Today he wanted to just sit on the couch, well Drill Sergeant Emma, lol told him he is getting up off his ass and walking. Guess what? He got up and walked, lol. He tried to cheat and slide his feet cause the walker has wheels. Uh no Dan, pick up the feet and walk. He got upset cause Emma yelled at him, but she told him walk or your in a rehabilitation hospital until your better, he walked, lol. Man that girl is good. She made him walk around the house a good 15 minutes, but then his legs started to shake and he had to sit back down. She is going to do this every 2 hours with him. He has to go to Thomas Jefferson Hospital next week and see a spinal specialists for his back. If they cannot find out what is wrong with his back then they want Dan to go to John Hopkins University in Maryland and see a doctor named Reginal Davis, who is suppose to be one of the top doctor's in back injuries. And of course I got pics of the kids, except for Marissa. Poor thing was in bed, she didn't feel good. Adrianna is wearing one of the outfits I got her for Christmas. Jeans and a shirt and a jacket that have Baby Girl written on them. Dan says, Mom, that's what I call Adrianna. I didn't realize that until he told me. I also got her a long sleeve pink onesie that says, Grandma let's me do it, why don't you? LOL
Every time I said Adriannna smile for Mommom, she smiled and stuck out her tongue. We all laughed. She is such a wonderful baby. I could not love her anymore then I already do. Alot of you here in Jland do the thankful thursday, so I figured I would do one this day.
