Exhaustion

On our way home from the hospital I told her we would see how she felt and if need be I would bring her to college and pick her up until her doctor's appointment. I set my alarm for 7 am but neither one of us wanted to get up. I would ask, "Wanna go to school?"

She mumbled, "No." So I rolled over and went back to sleep. We did this scenario about 4 times.

At 8:30, we got up and called the doctor's office. They gave her an appointment for Wednesday and said we had to bring her x-rays. So BabyGIrl called the hospital and told them we would pick them up.

She got to go one class and I picked up her records. The hospital is a NEWLY built hospital in a new location. The journey may be another post.

That night at 10:30. That is different for her because sometimes she doesn't go to bed until early morning.. She actually went to bed without me coaxing her. I went shower and she was in the bed when I cam out. She said she didn't sleep well but I sure did!

Oh yea, that evening I received an email from IDIOT. I knew it was not good but I read it. The gist of it was that as of Jan 1st, he was dropping her health insurance but he'll keep the dental and vision. First thought is why is he telling me this. She never got an email. I never responded or acknowledged. He never responded to mine.

Tuesday, we did the college thing. We did absolutely nothing that evening  I was relieved. We went to bed around 10:30-11. I kept dreaming of her wreck as if I was there.

Wednesday, we went to the doctor. When the nurse called her name and we were walking down the hall, the staff jokingly said, "No! Not again!  Everyone was oohing and ahhing. I was getting pretty tired of hearing this sorta thing.  Maybe details another post.

Doc said nothing ruptured etc. She needs to do her exercises as they gave her a choice of PT or do them herself. She knows what they are. The nurse said she doesn't see any reason why she can't drive. He told her to use the sling for six weeks. Gave her a go for normal activities.

We went get her moped and she is on the road again. "SIGH" However, she has promised me and her father that she was only going to go to school and work. No highways.

She sorta threw at me what i used to tell her. You fall, get up and go again. Please extend your prayer list to my daughter indefinitely.

I am now tired and worried. This apartment is sorta quiet now. MyLove is returning home tonight and I have him until Monday YAY!

Her BFF wrote her this when she heard. "You don't just need a bubble. You need a helmet, full body padding (like a space suit but full of padding) and then you need an emergency ejection with a parachute attached with a mattress following you. Then you need a bubble."

I love her! LOL!

Side Note: Has anyone used the New blogger interface? It's pretty cool. Watch out Wordpress!

  1. You touched my heart with this story!How it hurts us so to see our children suffer. My husband once told me that either we are IN A STORM, WALKING OUT OF A STORM, or we are BEFORE THE STORM in life and how true that is sometimes. Without God I'm not really sure how people make it. I find raising my daughters brings me back to my childhood and my trials and tribulations and triumphs. I wish we could SAVE our children from PAIN, but we can't. I realize how much my children just need me to LISTEN to them, something I find hard to do because I want to fix the problems. I recall my mother telling me, "YOUR TOUGH, YOU CAN HANDLE ANYTHING" Oh my how those words still ring in my ears even though she has been gone for almost 7 years. Anyways, Your daughter is blessed to have you as a mother and support her. Sometimes children have to figure out things the hard way. Oh my looking back on my childhood how I would do things differently....I don't regret the past nor do I wish to shut the door on it. (Alonon)
    I will pray for your BABY GIRL
    HUGS to you!
