News from my hospital bed

Well, hello. It's been six weeks since I've posted - okay I confess I've been at Clube Cedar Sinai Hospital. And four weeks of that was spent in ICU without communication except for writing - yes, I have a treche. The short story is that I had my husband take to the the ER because it hurt so much when I breathed. They admitted and tubed me immediately I'm told - really serious double pneumonia. Two intibations later the trache is working well. They gave me a talking one last night, so I can do short sentenses as well.

The lessons are far too many to list. I'm mostly aware of how I survived my own terror over being so ill. I don't know what I'd do without my faith. Hymns, childhood choir songs, scripture memorized all helped me through the days and nights. What a treasure our childhood is; a treasure of what I know for sures and its implanted deep in my heart.

My kids were amazing. They made sure I was not alone for one day!!!

My mind is swirling so I'll just say hello for now. It's good to be back.
