Belated Saturday post...

Hi, it's me, Lisa Marie, back at the helm. Sean has decided I'm recovered enough to resume blogging. But since I only get freed from my prison, er bed, a few times a day for short walks, I didn't have the tools at hand to put together a legitamate post. But I thought i'd write something brief here at 5 am while I'm waiting for a shot of beta blocker to calm my heartrate (too much dancing to iPod tunes if you ask me, but the doc disagrees. Saturday was overall a very good day, although we got off to a rough start. Turns out my pain isn't well controlled when I fall asleep for 3 hours and neglect to hit the button on my pain pump so I decided to stay awake the rest of the night and babysit the button. No sleep makes for a cranky sore girl. But I got some rest in the morning, had great nurses, and good news on the recovery front. Want the news? Maybe TMI, but we have bowel sounds. Which means things are starting to work inside and we're one step closer to going home.

Well, I've gotten my shot and would like at least 45 min of sleep before my next walking expedition, so that's all for now. Thanks for all your prayers, messages, love, and support.

Glad to see you back in business. Get some rest and hopefully the docs / nurses can get some better pain management so you don't have to babysit the pump....Healing thoughts and prayers. Love Anna

Maybe now we'll get some humor back in the post. On our way to the bayou city and I think we will be going to the aquarium.

I woke up this morning thinking about you guys -- it is Sunday, and this time last week, you were just finishing up everything in prepration for your journey to DC. Amazing what all has happened in a week. I can see Michael's point about the humor returning to the blog, but hey, Sean did a pretty good job at helm while he needed to -- of course, thanks to the laptop so that he did not have to use the Blackberry-he was making me laugh the other day describing trying to write in the dark with a Blackberry last time around.
OH, I spoke to Hayden last evening. I asked about going to the movie to see G-Force -- yes, it was really good, but he was more interested in letting me know that "my cousin is coming tomorrow." Colin, you definitely have a fan club!
Lisa Marie, Sean, Art, have a good day. Kim

So glad you are back ( no offense to Sean, of course, but it's great to hear from YOU!) and thrilled to hear progress is being made on the "recovery" front. Every step closer to home is a wonderful one! Love, Kathryn
