Wednesday Good - Byes

James left on Wednesday evening to go back to Arizona. He was pretty thrilled you finally gave him his kiss.  Earlier in the week you gave all of us kisses, but James only got your eyebrows to snarl. We had a lot of fun with that. He was thrilled to get his kiss, but sad to go home given the new complications. He was very much needed and appreciated by all. River and I both feel like we have a new brother. Danielle (Stevie D and James's younger sister) is a great addition to the group. She gave us the new picture we added below of you two this summer.  She will take the doctor notes when I go home for a couple of days.
I am hoping today will be a better day. They warned us about infection and phenomena, but somehow we thought you would escape both - you didn't. Your spirits seems good even though you feel bad. When asked if you were OK last night you mouthed "I feel like shit".    River and I have to go home today for work, but will be back as soon as possible. Pat came to see you for the second time last night (not sure of his last name - sorry Pat - a really nice guy who used to manage Steamboat Motors). When Stevie D. got the evil eye to leave your room , we all went back to the hotel and ate yummy left overs that Sam cooked the night before, then I took James to the airport and went to Moms. The rest of the gang went to see you again at 8:30.   Its hard to watch you struggle, but we know you will be OK in time. Zachary will be here soon - school is almost out for Christmas break. He had a big band concert last night. I know you are so looking forward to seeing him and Steveie D. especially wants his wing-man here.  Keep fighting....

  1. Michelle, thank you for the updates. As the docs said early on, she would get worse before she gets better and while this setback is scary and not what we all would like to see, it's part of the process. You are such an angel to be down there and helping out the family so much and keeping all of us back home updated on what's going on. It's hard to be here when we really want to be there, but we are there in spirit! Michele Dunklin, we all love you and are praying for you!
