Day 94

Our meeting with the doctors was a bust. They both were a no show. I just broke down. I couldn't believe it. What are they trying to do to us. When the doctors were paged they both said they were not aware of a meeting. Are you kidding me? What was all the discussion about last week? I feel numb and at a loss.

John and I took the opportunity to go to the medical library to research information regarding our situation. We found several items worth looking into more. Maybe that was really what we needed to be doing.

I was able to see Nicole for a few minutes while we were waiting for the doctors not to come. She looked good. She was just getting ready to eat her lunch. Crumbled hamburger with brown gravy, mashed potatoes, mashed carrots, applesauce, vanilla ice cream and lemon aide. Considering what she has been given I think looked pretty good. I hope she eats most of it.

Yesterday she was relisted in serious condition instead of critical. That is a plus. I don't know if she is out of the woods yet but I do know that she has made progress this week.

I am grateful to a loving Heavenly Father who listens to His children who in supplication come to Him with their problems. I am grateful at least at this time she is doing better. She knows who I am and tells me she loves me. I am grateful I have what precious time I do have with her to be able to express feelings to her and to be able to hear hers in return.

I don't know where or when this roller coaster will stop but I do know that the journey has been enlightening, scary, tiring, long, a blessing, and well....A JOURNEY!

How disappointing for sorry. Read and gather all the information you can, so when the "real" meeting takes will know exactly what is going on. You are doing the very best you can in a very difficult situation. Continue to stay strong!
