I'm Sick of Sickness

Garrison is eating well today! They are keeping the feeding tube in just in case, but so far, so good. He had his PICC line (deep in his foot) removed today, too! So now he just has a few leads on him to monitor his vitals. I think the IVs will probably stop soon, too.

Still no scholarly guesses on when we're coming home. They want to make absolutely sure he is OK before letting him go...and I'm 100% OK with that!

Meanwhile, I'm feeling pretty awful today. Lack of sleep and stress can't be good on top of getting treated last week for severe allergies (and maybe a cold; I don't know...I just took the drugs!)

Anyways, I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired. (That's why I posted this goofy pic...just to laugh a little!) I surrender. Tomorrow I'm going in to the doctor AGAIN. This time, he will probably check for pneumonia. If you don't hear from me for the next few days, I'm probably hiding out, trying to rest and recover! Please pray that our family will be united soon, and that we'll all be well enough to stay with each other!

If you really want to get rid of the "crud," eat a whole raw onion like you would an apple, and two whole cloves of garlic. Be prepared to need some milk and/or antacid. You will need some bravery but it works.

Pray you will feel better soon Franklin. It won't be long and your family will all be back together. It is wonderful news about Garrison. Keeping you all in our prayers.
Love you, Grandpa and Nana
