Yes, it will take some work for things to get back to normal for her. And with you to come home to, I'm sure she's anxious for more improvement. You've been a rock of steadiness for her. Bravo, Chief!

Happy thoughts, strong but gentle hugs, and prayers abound. I've readied the snowball machine and filled it with loving thoughts and kisses. Thank you for sharing, Mr. Flowers and continue to keep us posted.

Watch out! Here it comes....pazangoooo!!!!

We've been catching lots of those, from lots of people. They feel so much better than actual snowballs.

Gotta take my shower and get over to see her. Having lots of vacation time, and sick leave saved up is a very good thing. It let's us be with the ones we love when it counts most.

Chief, these are good signs. Not being able to stand is no problem. Even a healthy person who spends few days in bed will have problems to stand up. Kidneys and breathing those are important signs of improvement. I hope she is getting better. I will continue to pray for her.

Chief, So glad to hear things are improving so much! It took me a while to catch up on all the posts since I've been without internet service for a few days. We'll keep the prayers going until she is home and healthy.

Chief, I'm so happy to hear DW is doing better. Your strength throughout has been just what she needs to get back to normal.

DW has been out of intensive care for two days now, and is getting stronger every day. There are still nagging infections in her, some caused by the battery of antibiotics, some left over from the original infection, none of them very serious, and all of them being treated. Her color is back, she's started physical therapy to help give her enough muscular, and system strength to leave the hospital. It won't happen this week, but it will happen.

My prayers, and yours have been answered. But I will continue to pray as it has brought about a miracle for her and me, and my family. She was so close to death, but I have my wife back, and she will be stronger than before, all in good time.

Seeeeeeeya; Chief Longwind of the North
