This afternoon and tonight Jodi has continued to do well. She's eaten more and kept it down. She's been up more and been able to stay on top of the head pain. She's spent more time feeling relatively good than in a long time.
She asked her Mom to treat her like she was at a salon (see picture below). She wanted to relax somewhere besides the bed ( see picture below). She appreciated the delivery of more flowers and gifts, including homemade bread. She enjoyed more visits from neighbors and calls from family and friends. She, as always, enjoyed the comments on the blog and so appreciates the continued prayers and fasting of so many, including the fasting by those for whom this is a new experience.
All-in-all, it has been the best day in quite awhile. Dr. Couldwell came by tonight and told Jodi that she could go home as soon as she felt good enough and strong enough to do so. He thinks the headache problem will correct itself as she is up and about more and more.
Just a moment ago Jodi said, "I'm hungry! What is there to eat!" Wow! Her appetite is coming back. That's a good sign too!
So, we'll see how tomorrow goes and take things from there.
Tolan said he had a great time at Lagoon today. The kids had a ball. Tolan got a little nauseated going with Trenden on all the rides...not an unusal price to pay for a wonderful day with your kids. Right now Jodi is talking to Casen about how much fun he had at the amusement park today.
It looks like it was a good day for the whole family. Hopefully, it won't be long before they're having great days together.
The University of Utah Hospital "Salon". Jodi having her eyebrows plucked. Ummm! I guess this helped her to feel better. She acted like it at least.
Jodi resting on the couch by the window. It's been a long time since she's done this. It felt great to just rest somewhere besides in her bed.
