Well, she did it again today. I walked into her room and she turned her head toward me. The respirator tubes were gone and she said, "I love you." I rushed to her bedside more excited than I have ever been in my my entire life. I literally couldn't speak for about a minute. I just kept catching my breath. After a while, I could talk to her again. She turned, smiled, and said, "I'm pregnant." She hasn't lost her sense of humor. I laughed gently. I have been walking on clouds all day. I was also told that her kidneys are working much better, and that she should be able to be removed from the dialysis machine tomorrow.

No tears tomorrow though. I'm just going to stay with her as long as they will let me. She still needs rest to heal and start getting her strength back. Every day is better than the day before. Prayers sent have been answered, and are still being answered. I wish I could throw a huge celebration, and make my best ribs, my best egg rolls, and of course, my best pancakes for all of you, and everyone else who has given such support. Oh, and really good steaks would be served as well. Alas, I have no such resources to do such things. I will come up with a spectacular culinary creation, and post the recipe on DC for everyone to enjoy. That's the best I can do, besides saying a heartfelt, thank you.

Seeeeeeya; Chief Longwind of the North

Before you know it, she will be out of that bed and you can start humming "your" song as you hold her in your arms and dance around the room with her.

DW is in the operating room again, as I type this. A CAT scan was done this morning on her abdomen, and multiple lesions were found. She has to be opened up and the lesions cleaned to eliminate the infections. She was supposed to go into surgery at about 5 p.m., but the surgeries that were before hers took long times. She wasn't taken down until 11:30 p.m. I then went to the store as visiting hours were long over, and she will sleep the remainder of the night. I stayed with her from 9 a.m. this morning until 11:30 p.m. and was a bit tired, and hungry. Picked up a can of chili that a store clerk said was pretty good. It was terrible, had cloves in it and meat that was the size and texture of sawdust grains. But it filled the belly, and I've taken my meds and am heading for bed.

I hope all of you had a better day than I did. Keep the prayers coming, they really help. And thanks for the support.

Seeeeeeya; One Tired Chief Shortwind of the North, for tonight at least.
