Yesterday I spent the afternoon with Lauri at her mom's hospital room. Her mom hasn't woken up from the surgery. Her vitals are good-strong strong heartbeat. We talked to her, held her hand and listened to Lauri tell funny stories. I now know how Lauri got to be so spoiled!!! ;0
I told Ms. Norma Jean that she had so many people all over the country saying prayers and sending good wishes her way. I would like to think that she heard everything we said. I know she responded to Lauri's voice by moving her head towards her.
The room is very large and private. Her nurse, Roy, sits right outside the door. It is a quiet floor and not at all hectic like, say the ortopedic ward, with people coming and going...you know how noisy hospitals can be.
Any way, Lauri wanted me to post. I don't know how it happened but Baby, somehow, managed to get herself smack dab in the middle of the bouquet I brought. Crafty Baby! and Please notice the chippy white enamel pitcher...I told Lauri I wanted to bring a quilt and hang it on the wall and add a piece of furniture or two b/c the hospital decor is so not us! the photo is blurry since I used my camera phone but I think it's all right.
Lauri and I had some good laughs, shared a cup of coffee and I know that I came away feeling a little less sad and helpless. xo lulu
