Wednesday Mike Upate

He’s HOME!  Hooray!!!! The fever stopped sometime around midnight last night and has not returned.  There are still MANY unanswered questions and we will be pursuing answers in the coming days.  For now, Mike is home and stuck in bed or on the recliner, eating a soft food diet.  We’ll see how it all goes.  Today, by the time we got Mike home he was ready for a nap – a four hour nap!  I went shopping for “soft foods.”  The next couple of weeks are going to be bland, but interesting.  
Andy, Ian, Tim and Dan have been amazing through all of this. When I arrived home today with Mike, the house was picked up, dishes done, bathrooms clean and the laundry was swishing thanks to Ian, Tim and Andy! Early this evening, Mike was happy to get a call from Dan – laughter is good medicine.  However, I think the stress of the past several days have taken their toll on all of us.  Ian and Tim were in bed before midnight. I’m kind of at that punchy point where sleep is actually needed but hard to come by. Poor Andy just woke up with a raging fever – I changed his sheets, gave him some Tylenol and tucked him back into bed.  We’ll see what tomorrow holds. Mike?  You’d never know he’s been sleeping in a tiny hospital bed flat on his back with multiple IV’s and monitors – he is completely sprawled over our king-sized bed.  Unless something changes in the next 20 minutes, I”ll be sleeping on the couch.  Which is fine.  I’m just so happy he’s home. 

Thank you all for the support and prayers.  Now to find out the cause of this  . . .  hmmmm. . . . Stay tuned.

  1. Hallelujah!!! The gratitude comes through in your words. Praise to those boys for being so thoughtful (and to you for teaching them to do so), and uh…hello?…Universe?…Andy is not supposed to be sick right now, y'hear? These people need a freaking break! There. I got all indignant for you.

    Hang in there, Bakers. Welcome home, Mike!
