The last four days have been a horrible roller coaster.
It's been a few years since we've been on that roller coaster with Jax. When they tell you they have a very low chance of recovering. It sucks all the same when it's your mom!!
I look at the purse we got her for Christmas. The one with the different covers you can change. She wanted one so bad, and it sits in her room, unused. All my nieces and my sisters are here, but it's not for playing and having fun. Even though I always love seeing them! I want to eat cookie dough with my mom and sisters, laughing so hard we are crying!
Yesterday morning they told us the chances of my mom recovering were very low. That she had been out too long without responding. We were supposed to drive home today, but I couldn't leave my mom like that. I've gone from that extreme low, to today, were they've turned off all of her sedation and she is shaking her head to questions! She is still intubated. They are hoping to get the tube out tonight or tomorrow. I have to drive home tomorrow. Ray has to work and I have a few important appointments for Jax. I feel much better leaving knowing that she is improving. Although I hate to leave her. I want to go back soon, I'm just not sure when it will happen, as ray can't come and mondo really can't miss school. I cant afford to stay in a hotel for another long period either. But my parents house is full and there are just too many of us to invade small places.
I'm just glad that my mom will recover. We don't yet know how much she's lost, and so that may be a long recovery. But she's here, and that's all that matters! I wasn't ready to say goodbye to my mom. It's way too soon!
A yucky tummy virus is going through the family like wildfire. Carter and Arina have both been sick, and I'm just praying Jax doesn't get it because last time he had a stomach virus he spent 9 days on the hospital!
Here's a few more pics from Jax page. If you haven't joined us there you need to!

Any improvment is a gift. I will continue to pray for your Mom and for the sick kiddos AND for your strength in all of this.
You are one tough woman and so very blessed with all the love in your life. :)
