This day has an unbelievable turn of events. Melanie is the 7p-7a nurse. She has been a wonderful nurse since we were first admitted to ICU. Leslie has had her trach collar on since morning and tolerating it well. Dr Shermer visits at 11:10pm and we begin to discuss PEG tube options. The nightmare started on August 25, 2015 at 03:35 when suddenly Leslie’s B/P dropped and a Levophed drip was started. She had emergency x-rays and we discovered that her Platelets count and other Laboratory values had dropped. My scripture for this day ‘s reading is found in Psalm 25 and I pray.
Today was a purple colored day! Why do you talk like we know what you are thinking? This is a question my children and husband ask frequently. Why do you not understand I expect miracles and having my Family Blends and Friends understand why I sing songs and shout about certain things. Today my daughter came by to see us with the words, I have not seen you in two weeks. She came with a purple scarf from her Carnival Cruise, with the words, “When I saw this it looked like something you would wear.” I smiled and ran to my closet to see what purple or red piece of clothing would work for me to wear with the scarf.
Today was one of my “well blessed” days! My daughter said “I know you are writing something about us.” Yes, I have enough material to fill a book and you all are the characters. As I move into my Midnight #prayerlifting zone, I say again to God, “Every time I turn around You are making a Way.” If you don’t know it by now , I love to read and repeat the story of the goodness and mercy of the Lord God and my Savior.
! continue to capture scenes that will be included in my “Skies of My Sixties” journals. I noticed that someone had “liked” a post from the past which reminded me of my Honey Bear’s work. He worked at the Peabody Hotel for 50 years before retiring and today we were remembering the ice storm of 21 years ago where he drove into work. He even remembered the route he took to avoid the ice crazed drivers. He was able to drive us to work and back so many times, I am thanking God for him as we both have since retired but I share with you a picture of the ultimate ups and downs on the job,.He retired in 2007 and he was honored with an elevator plaque at the Peabody Hotel. I think of how many times people must ride the elevator up and down and ask, “Who is Silas Harris? He is my one minute elevator speech on inspiration and gratitude. He is a wonderful man and I call him my “loving out loud” and a part of #WysWaysofWellness.
