I met my dad in Crosbyton yesterday and picked up the kids. We didn't do much last night...stayed at the hospital until 9 and then ate and went to the hotel. Rick's day yesterday was kind of blah. He threw up yesterday morning and just didn't seem to really care about much going on after that. He did have a new trick up his sleeve when I went to put him in bed. I had the bedrail up at the top of the bed and he reached for it, so I thought I would see what he was going to do. He stood up just enough to scoot his bottom over his arm rest and sat himself down in the bed...then looked at me and smiled a little like, "see what I can do?".
Of all mornings to have car trouble, I pick this morning...it was freezing and my battery was dead. Easy fix right? Wrong. My hood wouldn't open. Luckily there is a collision center next door to the hotel so 2 guys came over and practically took my grill off to get the hood up...the latch is totally messed up, so now my car hood is closed with a bungy cord and I can't go over 50 mph. Anyway, they have a part ordered and should have it in next week. We finally got to the hospital at 11. Kim, Phillip, Curtis, Jean, Melanie and Carson Graf all came to see us today. They are just like family to us. Rick is always happy to see them. After he ate lunch he took a nap and we went to Abuelos for lunch. We also had a visit from Tanner Kieschnick tonight who was taking a break from studying for finals. Rick told him to bring him 2 Bud Lights...now why would he think that Tanner would have any Bud Light?
I thank God for all he's done for us through this ordeal. We have a lot to be thankful for including the family and friends and complete strangers that have prayed and done so many things for us. I know we still have a ways to go, but it's been made so much easier by keeping the faith.
I still believe!
