2/15 - Our new routine, day 3 (Short update)

I don't have the energy to write too much today (especially after filling out my portion of Mom and my Amazing Race application, due in California at 1700 on Tuesday), but I wanted to make sure that everyone knows that Saturday was indeed much better than Friday. Sunday was much better than Saturday. Jamie's pain medications were rationed appropriately so that she was able to endure her whirlpool and wound care treatments with relative ease. Michael had the smart idea to put both of Jamie's hands in the whirlpool at the same time so we can finish with the whirlpool soon... hopefully we'll get that lift for the whirlpool tomorrow.

Molly and Papa Gene were in town on Sunday (Molly was there on Saturday too). I'll fill in the details tomorrow, perhaps, but for now, please know that Jamie's doing a lot better. You may be happy to know that we had some really good times last night while watching (the surprisingly disappointing) SNL with Alec Baldwin and eating pizza. Convo flowed well and she was happy and laughing.

It was a good way to leave Houston, and I'm looking forward to going back. Thank you for all the support, specifically to Kelly who came by with a very generous gift for the family. We couldn't do this without people like you. Here's to hoping that tomorrow is better than today, and so on...
