Wednesday Night UPdate

Ok... if you're looking for bad news, go someplace else... this is all good here tonight.

I talked to Kat on my way home from church...

#1 - She sounded SOOOO much better. Her voice was strong and we laughed and she giggled. I didn't hear the fear I had the other times.

#2 - The vertigo has gone away, since yesterday afternoon!!!!!! Obviously we want to keep praying/sending thoughts that it stays gone but that's WONDERFUL news.

#3 - Michael was a very naughty boy today. He wants out of his bed BADLY. He's got those things on your legs to keep them from forming blood clots when you're in bed, and he HATES them, using words to describe them that aren't words he normally uses. He's pulled his catheter out, they put these pillow things on his hands so he couldn't grasp things so Mr. Contortionist got his TOES up there trying to get the pillows off! Finally they had to restrain him... so, as Kat said, physically he's doing REALLY well.

#4 - Kat's friend Cindy is there. Cindy is being a big help and I believe is planning on eloping with Dr. Carl before the week is done.

#5 - I didn't get a lot of information about what's coming up next. Kat just sounded so up I didn't want to risk that by delving into what's next.

#6 - She is SO thankful for all your comments and all who have mentioned Michael and her on their blogs. She reads them before she heads to the hospital in the morning.

#7 - The girls are doing pretty well. They thought it was pretty funny that Daddy was being naughty today!

So... there you go. Good stuff hunh?? But keep praying, keep sending those positive thoughts and Karma and whatever else you're sending!!!!!

(dang it - I got eloping wrong... I never was good with when to drop the "e")

Tell Michael to stop misbehaving and concentrate on getting better, not getting away.

LOL ... Michael sounds as though he is doing really well !! That is good news !

Kat, prayers, good thoughts and a BIG HUG heading your way. I've been checking in every couple of hours to see if Lizzy has updated.

I'm glad the girls seem to be doing well and getting a giggle over their Daddy being naughty. :-)That is a very positive thing on their part.

Thanks for the updates. Lizzy and hang in there, Kat. I have a stockman's whip you can borrow, if you think that will help in keeping Michael in line :-)

Oh yay! I'm so glad to hear that Michael continues to do well. The catheter part cracks me up -- and so glad vertigo is gone. Fingers crossed tomorrow's update is even better. Lots of prayers heading out that way!

I am so glad to hear that Michael was being a stinker! That speaks volumes...I am especially glad to hear that Kat was upbeat. Just remember Kat, God is good, you aren't going through this for nothing. WE love you and are praying for you and your family...

Jenny and the Princess Peonies said...

YAY! I am so gald all is going better.

Britt said...

Kat, this may be the only time I'm allowed to say this, but I'm so very, very glad your husband is being a stinker =-)

Prayers continue to flood your way, my dear.

Elena said...

HOORAY!!! I LOVE to hear that Kat giggled. Hopefully we're all on the get well train now. Can't say I blame Michael wanting out of there. No fun for sure, but we all want him to fully recover. I'm SO glad to hear that Kat's vertigo is gone too. Hopefully it stays away for good. Take Care Kat!! I miss you like crazy!! Thank you Lizzy for the updates!

Jennifer P. said...

One word: yaaaaaaaaay!!!!! :0)

I loved every word of that!

Gina said...

OOOH, I can so relate to wanting out of the hospital. I have been twice in the last 25 years. Once as the patient and the other time I spent the night holding and nursing the patient. Not good either time.
But, you must behave if you expect them to let you go.

Hooray! Thanks for the good news. Praise God.

Special hugs and kisses for Katie and Madalyn for being so brave.

JourneytoFamily said...

Great news! I'm praying for you and your husband, Kat.

Tam said...

Kat
You are in my thoughts throughout the day here! Prayers!

John Deere Mom said...

So glad to hear it!! Thankfully it sounds like Michael is well on his way to getting out of that place!! We're still praying for you, Kat!

Nissa said...

He's doing great! SO relieved, and still praying for a full recovery!

Big Hugs, Kat!

Teri said...

Good good news. Michael, just pretend to be a good boy so they will let you out. You can go back to naughtiness when you get home.

Kat, I'm here and ready to help.

Finding Normal said...

YAY for naughtiness! I hope Michael continues his antics and Kat's spirits stay up, and they'll be laughing at home ASAP! Still love and prayers!

SKELLER said...

Lizzie - thanks for continuing to update us.

Kat - I'm keeping you, Michael, kids in my prayers...

Ronda's Rants said...

Sending love!

Lula! said...

Praying, as always. I love Michael. And he loves the way I say "wife," so I dig that.

Mama Dawg said...

Whew....I'm so happy to hear this great news!

Aubrey said...

Amen!
That is great news! I never thought I'd be so happy to hear someone's hubby has been misbehavin! LOL

Bird, Frizzy and Our Little Yaya said...

Glad to hear your hubby has found his fight. That is always a good sign when someone who is sick gets their spunk back. I know it must be hard to see him with all the tubes and cuffs on. It's all for the greater good no matter how horrible it looks or feels to him. We continue to pray for a speedy recovery and now for him to relax and to be a "good boy" for the doctors.

texcindy said...

thanks for your great posts, Lizzie! you're doing so much just by staying on top of things. No Dr. Carl today yet...sigh...

Ashley said...

I'm glad things are going so well. He is still in my thoughts. I love that Cindy is lamenting the absence of Dr. Carl above. Haha!

Becky P. said...

I'm so glad to hear that Michael is being naughty and trying to get out of bed. Michael never struck me at the type to be help back from anything.

I continue to pray for Katrina, Michael, Kathy and the girls.

Katrina, please do let me know if you need anything. I'm just a phone call away.

Glad to hear Michael can get crafty with his digits! That is a good sign.

Brian and Staci said...

Naughtiness is a very good sign...in this case :) Soooo glad to hear things are looking up :) And soooo glad to hear Kat's vertigo is gone! Thank God! Will continue in my prayers :)

So funny, Kat...maybe this will give you a giggle....so the other day, Brian came home...and asked if "Michael" was boyfriend or something and why were there sticky notes with his name every where?? I obviously told him your story and, although he is very sad for you...he is very happy that I don't have a boyfriend :) hee hee (Silly boy...if I had a boyfriend...would I really leave sticky notes up with his name everywhere??!! heee heee heee! ;) I love that man!)
