Jim's Birthday

Jim had his birthday on Tuesday and unfortunately our wonderful best laid plains went array. Monday morning I woke up paralyzed from the waist down..another RTM attack. That stands for recurrent transverse myelitis. So we spent his birthday here at IU med center. I am still here. Pam, his sister came down for the week so we could all visit and so we are making the best of it. I have movement now but still in quite a lot of nerve pain. They gave me an air bed and I also have a waffle mattress on top that is helping to keep me comfortable. I spent most of yesterday and today on my belly because I was hurting so much and couldn't be touched on my back, backside or hips. I am making progress and the pain is being better controlled. Keep praying.

Well we had a little "wild party" on Tuesday here in my room for Jim. He had the day off so we all had a good time. I bought him a brand new Droid X and an upgrade to his MLB at go app so he can watch the games as well as here them on the radio. He has always been a die hard Tigers fan but we have often lived in Indiana where we don't get those games picked up. We even used to buy the baseball packages with Directv but still games would be blacked out. Now he can watch every single one.for next to nothing. It's pretty awesome.we used to just listen to them but this is so much better. So he is a happy birthday hubby. Here are some pics from our celebration.

What's this. Pam wrapped up a present for our Sheba for daddy to give to her. Is she spoiled or what.

Wednesday they gave me a real treat and brought Sheba to come.visit with me. It was really nice.

I am so blessed to be loved by so many. All my stitching friends have been praying for me and emailing me little notes of encouragement. I appreciate all of you.
