Bullet Update

* The sky has looked a lot like this photo all week-- dark and dreary. But finally today the sun came out and it was such a welcome sight!

* My mom is about the same-- stable, but still critical. She is continuing to use the ventilator to breathe, and getting her off of that is step one in her recovery. Today some blood work revealed a ph balance was off, so they are adjusting her medication and will repeat the blood work tomorrow. It shouldn't be difficult to correct, and then she can start the process once again. On the plus side, she is getting lots of rest, she has not had any more fever, and her wound is looking much less infected. I will be thankful for any change in the right direction!

* I woke up today with a case of pink eye in both eyes! I could tell my eyes felt sore before I even tried to open them this morning, and sure enough they were glued shut with gunk. I haven't had pink eye in a really long time. Luckily I got some eye drops and have been using them all day. Unfortunately I couldn't go visit my mom with my crazy eye infection, so I had to rely on updates from my dad all day. I think by tomorrow, I should be good to visit though. When I told the girls I had pink eye this morning, Leah said, "Yeah, someone in my class had pinkitis too." That girl always makes me laugh.

* This week has been so chaotic that we have not been able to spend a lot of time as a family. So tomorrow, we are checking the girls out of school early to take them to the Medieval Fair down in Norman near the OU campus. They are so excited to see knights and princesses. The weather is supposed to be great, and I think we will have a fun time together.

Hope your day was a good one, and thank you for your continued prayers for my mom!

Oh man pink eye is nasty biz-ness, but easily remedied. I hope you are soon well enough to see your mom. I am so glad to hear that things continue to improve!
