Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth." Genesis 9:13

Day 2

I heard from Just Me this morning, of all things she was checking in on my daughter's procedure and on my son. She admits, she's more worried for my son (because of the state of his mental health) than my girl this morning.

There is more to do at the hospital and that is helping pass the time, to stay engaged. Although she prefers to be alone just because of sensory issues; but then staff could see that as troublesome.

She's had her labs drawn, seen an OT for an evaluation, seen the doctors and is happy to be starting the new med tomorrow. Finally. She just wants to get on with it already.

As for the first night, Just Me says she slept okay, all things considered. Plus, she actually ate today. It's been nice to have the pressure off of her while this is going on, so I think she's really relieved to be there.

Oh, and she did cry on the phone with her mom, who is taking care of some things at Just Me's place because she was so unwell recently.

Thanks for the messages, she's really appreciated all of them. Keep'em coming.

I too have suffered from severe depression. I was almost hospitalized for it earlier this year. I think it's great that you've made this decision for yourself and have taken the steps to take care of yourself. Julia is right. You are very very brave.

Great to hear the news, JustMe. I'm so glad you're YOU!

Still impressed, still praying, with love, Michal

...always wrestling in prayer for you, that you may stand firm in all the will of God, mature and fully assured.

Colossians 4:12 (NIV)
