I'm sorry I haven't updated sooner. Yesterday I felt well enough and I ripped my livingroom apart and gave it a good cleaning. I always feel so much better waking up to a clean livingroom. I can sit and relax and have my coffee and read my emails.
Ok, so about Dan. The surgery went well. It was a 5 1/2 hour surgery, and the doctor feels Dan will make a 95% recovery. He says when it comes to spinal surgery there is never a 100% recovery. But after 24 hours, they got Dan up out of bed and he took 4 steps, yessssssss. He's in alot of pain when he stands, but that is to be expected after all he has been through. My daughter Emma has been at the hospital all day each day since his surgery. She said he is in good spirits and looks great. Yesterday he was fitted for a back brace which he will have to wear for the next 2 month's. Emma and Dan have asked me to tell you all, Thank you so very much for all your cards and prayers. Everyday a card or two came in the mail for Dan and each one made him smile. He told me I have some really awesome friends. I agree'd with him totally. You all are so special and hold a part of my heart. So from Emma and Dan and from me, We thank you so very much. YOU GUYS ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I think it is just awesome how a community such as Jland, pulls together and sends so much love out to people they have never met and most likely won't ever meet. I know with me, even though I never met you (except for Jeanne who is an awesome, beautiful lady) I feel as though you guys are part of my family. I go to bed at night saying a prayer for all of you and your children, husbands, moms and dads, and I wake each morning wondering how you all are and if your well. Like this morning. The first email I read was an alert from Pam. How a lil boy 9yrs old got to fight Dark Vador, and he was so happy. I smiled and it really warmed my heart reading how happy he was and his mother and he told Pam, May the force be with her. That was just so heart warming. Pam, you rock girlfriend. Your a great lady, a wonderful mother and an awesome nurse, and most of all a great friend. Love ya girlfriend.
Well, I had better finish getting ready and get Rebecca to school. Yesterday the teacher said it was a bad day. At least a dozen kids were out of control, and she said please come tomorrow I need you. So, I will be there today and help her. 27 kids is alot for 1 person, and there's a good 12 of them who are the most unruley, back sassing kids you would never want to meet. They don't get away with it when I'm there. My loud deep voice scares them, lol. And I can get loud, believe me, lol.
Take care all, and have a wonderful day. Chrissie we're suppose to get snow today around noon and until late evening. I wish I could send it to you so Kyan can play in it. Rebecca is all excited about it, not me. YUCK, I hate snow. And thank you to Angie and LisaJo for your call and emails asking me if I was ok. I swear this summer I am coming to Ohio to meet you both and when I do you guys are getting the biggest hug ever. GOTA GO.
LOVE YOU ALL....................CINDY
