My Little Darlin, PT day 71, by David

Day 7 at home.  Jan is conked out again after a long active day(TIGT) so you are stuck with me writing this again.  Not much new other than Jan seems to be improving daily.  She even said she feels the improvement.  We did go to Tupelo and visited the critical care unit where Jan was for a month.  Jan saw and was able to thank many of the nurses and staff that took car of her.  I will tell you who read this, for health care providers who deal with a lot of very sick people to actually get to see one come back the way Jan has shows just how important and meaningful the job they do is.  Jan and I are so thankful to all of you at North Mississippi Medical Center.  Also as important are the ground and air ambulance crews that got her there.  You all truly played a major role in saving My Little Darlins life.  We can not thank you enough.  What you do every day is difficult and very stressful but matters so much and she is proof.

Tomorrow we are going to Jackson for her Intake Interview at Methodist Rehabilitation Center Quest Program to be followed on Thursday for her Quest team evaluation.  By the way she also gets a root canal tomorrow.

Please do not forget what happened to Jan putting her on this path.  Not all are as fortunate in their outcome as Jan has been.

SHARE THE ROAD, IT'S A LIFE
PUT THE !%@$# CELL PHONE DOWN BEFORE YOU KILL SOMEBODY
GET OFF THE COUCH,  LIFE IS FOR DOING STUFF
SUPPORT BIKE WALK MISSISSIPPI,  THEY WILL HELP MAKE CHANGES HAPPEN
BE BRIGHT AND BE SEEN

I Love My Little Darlin,
David

  1. Jan and David, I am so glad for you both. Jan's continued recovery is wonderful news. There are still frustrations and difficulty, but things could have been so very much worse. I am not surprised Jan is doing so well. From what's been written here, it is clear she is a strong lady psychologically, and that David loves her tremendously. I am certain both were huge factors in her healing. You are so lucky to have each other.

    David, I am thinking of what you wrote about changing the culture. It is not so farfetched. Once, it was common for everyone to smoke. Now, it is discouraged and frowned upon. People didn't always jog. Someone had to start that, didn't they? We did not always have fitness classes and clubs. If enough people try to popularize biking, no matter how small it starts, it could eventually grow into an everyday activity for everyone, why not? It would take a huge sea change in the culture, sure, but it's possible. We already have signs of concern over the obesity epidemic. If we have enough small scale, grass roots efforts to fight it, including bike clubs and such, I bet we would see change.
