the past few days

I am home today now, catching up on my stuff and sleep. Tuesday my daughter went to the hospital. Friday she came home, diagnosed with c. diff, a bacterial infection in the intestine. Today she learned she has Listeriosis, also. She is on antibiotics for the c. diff. She begins another medication on Monday for the Listeriosis. (Maybe if we had socialized medical care in this country she would still be in the hospital where she should be). She could have died…again. So close so many times over the past few years. I named her Rainbow Tree Girl awhile back. I told her today she is now “Super” Rainbow Tree Girl.

Tom is home with her for the weekend. Her dad and I will drive down again tomorrow evening to stay, so she is not alone during the day while Tom works. I wish they were closer at hand for everyone’s sake.

My blog posts (the growing challenge and tech free challenge) are on hold. Starting my seedlings is on hold, too, but I will get to those next week. First things first.

When it’s a matter pertaining to the health and well being of those we love the most, the support of others mean a lot. Any light, positive vibes, thoughts or prayers for Kandice’s return to health and well being are most welcome.
