Day 12

We are back on the floor and out of the ICU. They past couple of days have been super stressful. I'm glad Chuck has taken up blogging again so you wouldn't have to hear my hysterics. Lucy is doing a lot better today than she has been. Her pain this week has been pretty bad. She screams whenever someone comes in the room. Yesterday, she kept looking at us like we were the enemy. I hated it. She seems a little more comforted by us today. The girl has been so traumatized! I had intended to write more but I'm too tired. I'll try to update more tomorrow.

Rest is important for everyone. It helps Lucy to heal and helps those around her to look at all the little steps of progress more positively. You are all doing your best and know that we are praying daily for Lucy's recovery and for the people who are caring for her to make the right decisions to help her get well! Hope tomorrow is a better day for Lucy!

This made me so sad, to hear about Lucy's suffering. I had just read your post and I was crying about Lucy, when I heard the lovely music of the Vienna Boy's Choir playing on TV. It was so beautiful, it made me cry some more. Then I remembered hearing about people who go around to hospitals and play the harp for people who are in a lot of pain and it helps to take the edge off their pain, an to relax. Maybe you are already doing something like this. It has helped me before, too. I get a very severe pain in my side that's like appendicitis, and once when I was having a particularly severe attack, I turned on the radio and they had started playing Christmas music already the day after Halloween. It just happened to be the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, and it began with a beautiful oboe solo, and when they started singing "Away in a Manger", my pain just melted away and I felt as if I had just been wrapped in a deliciously warm blanket. Wrapped in the arms of love. I just feel so bad for Lucy, and you, and I felt like I needed to tell you about this. We're praying for you all.
