Scott sent Suzanne the following text this morning:
Good morning Camp Recovery. Conditions are green for evac in t-minus 6 hours. We value your missions success!
Scott will pick us up this afternoon to take me to the airport. They will make sure my bags are checked and I get to my gate ok. I can’t lift anything more than 10 pounds so lifting suitcases are out of the question.
Camp Recovery has been good. I will be sad to leave Suzanne and Gay and Roger. The Residence Inn has been an great place to recover because I have absolutely no responsibilities except to eat, sleep, and well…recover. I admit I will miss a deluxe breakfast laid out every morning, maid service every day, and Suzanne anticipating my every need. The nurse warned me yesterday about that. She said mothers especially tend to start feeling a little better and then the next thing they know they are hauling laundry baskets around and they develop a hernia. Or they do a little too much and end up exhausted and sore in bed the next day. I would like to say that I would never do such a thing but I admit that sounds like something I would do.
Pray I can continue to recover well, follow doctor’s orders, and take it easy when I get home. I am so so excited to see Rick and the kids. It will be marvelous to sleep in my own bed and eat in my own kitchen.
Gay continues to get good reports. Her ultrasounds all show good blood flow to the liver which is great news. Her bloodwork continues to improve and she looks better every day. Here are some pics we took yesterday.
rick has some “shout outs” here
