Friday Night

Last night Katy was restless and seemed to have more stomach pain. That was a little disappointing for her, and she felt bad for keeping me awake. But since we didn’t get much sleep I told my “boss” I’d be in to work after lunch. He took it well! Katy slept most of today.

Late this afternoon our friend, Whitney, came for a visit and played Hymns on her harp. Katy fell asleep again during the concert but Whitney assured her that she takes it as a compliment when her music relaxes people to sleep. Whitney is actually taking classes toward a degree in Occupational Therapy. Whitney stayed for dinner and then Paul Burton and Whitney gave us dance lessons all evening! It was so much fun! Katy woke up and joined us, and it was just great. The pictures posted are of this evening’s festivities. (Including a break at 9PM for Katy’s TPN to be changed.) It was such a delightful evening. The kind of evening that falls together and everyone says, “That was just so nice!” We are all so grateful for the joy of being at home.

God Bless you all, and thank you for keeping those comments coming. Katy checks her Blog about 6 times a day and loves to hear from you.

    I feel horrible for not being a better friend this summer! I’m sorry I haven’t been there the past couple months! I am sorry that you’ve had so many discouragements and complications recently. I do have to say that I love hearing your postitive outlook about the whole situation. Your faith is so strong, and I love that about you! By putting our trust in the Lord, all things are possible as you know! I am praying for you! I hope things start to get a little easier for you! I pray that your pain will be minimal! I would LOVE to see you again soon! You also have a birthday coming up soon! Could I possibly get your address? :) I hope you can forgive me for being such a horrible friend but just know that I’m thinking of you and you’re in my prayers! Your friend ~Jenny McGraw~

    Hey Katy!
    Sorry to hear you had a rough night, but keep hanging in there! I’m finally home, with my prized pills! I keep staring at the bottle! Ha! I kept checking my purse to be sure they were still there! What do you do if you loose experimental medication??? I was also wondering if I’d have a hassle at airport security since the pills have no markings on them. But, TSA didn’t question them, or the tube of lipstick and little bottle of make up I forgot were in my purse! Hmmm…

    Tonight I was home in time to go to the coffee house near my apartment. I don’t know if I’ve told you about it - it’s a Christian coffee house and on Friday and Saturday nights they have live Christian music. Tonight they had a bluegrass band that was pretty good.

    More e-mail later - the caffeine is starting to wear off.

    Hey sweetie–I love getting comments from you on my blog!! It makes me feel special to know that you make that little bit of effort to keep up with me. You’re a real gem. :-)

    Your evening sounds like it was too much fun! Whitney is a wonderful harpist, from what I’ve been told. I think I’ve heard her play before but it’s been a long time. I can’t wait to hear that you’re on a complete diet of “real food” instead of the TPN.

    Take care of yourself and stay rested up. I’m still praying for you, of course!! Love you.

    Hi, Katy!

    I was fascinated by your mom’s comments about the harp music. I have a friend who plays harp who made a comment about the benefits of listening to and playing harp music. There are lots of comments on the internet about medical benefits of listening to harp music–it’s even been looked at in the operating room. So, keep listening!

    The links on your blog page to other sites are very informative. Thanks! Also, I went to your Xanga site. Excellent!

    Praying for you and your family.
