Okay, so today hasn't been stellar...so there have been a few bumps in the road...so what? Don't you think it is time to get out of this bed for something other than to go to the bathroom? Don't you think it is time to get out of this room altogether? Why not take a tour of the hospital? Why not look at the outside world? Why not go get a croissant, cream cheese, and ice cream? Why not have a little bit of a picnic?
All this sounded like a good idea to Jodi tonight too! So for 40 minutes we took a tour with Jodi in a wheelchair. Then when we got back Jodi sat up on the couch in her room for another 40 minutes looking out the window, enjoying the croissant and ice cream, enjoying being somewhere other than in that frickin' bed!
It's amazing what a change of scenery can do! Think of it --- leaking spinal fluid several times today, running a fever, generally feeling like "Get me the heck out of here!" After being confined for 11 days the "stroll in the park" was a blessing! Not a single drop of spinal fluid during the entire time...80 minutes of being "up and around" and not a drop! We haven't talked to a doctor about why this might have happened, but it has! Pretty cool, huh?
Jodi is hoping you all have a good night and a great Memorial Day Weekend! Love to you all!
Here a few pics of tonight's blessed experience:
