Well, we have great news! The doctor visited Julie this morning, was very pleased with her condition, and told her she could stay in the hospital or go home as she wished. And so, Julie is home!

I’m amazed at how alert she is (I figured she’d be sleeping most of the time), how little pain she is in, and how good her color is.

She’s having to deal with restricted movements, as she’s not to lift more than ten pounds, raise her hands above her shoulders, or do anything that involves a lot of physical motion. She can’t dress by herself because she can’t move enough to get her arms in her shirtsleeves. She was going to make a snack for herself, but couldn’t get the cereal off the top shelf. She discovered last night that sleeping in a flat bed is out of the question for a while. Good thing she bought that recliner last weekend.

Still, she feels much better than either of us expected.

We’re continuing to enjoy the support of our friends and loved ones. Shi-Yi and husband Steven were visiting her when I arrived at the hospital in the morning. Shortly after we got home, our good friend Sharon from across the street came by for a visit. Julie’s also been on the phone with family members.

So you see, we’re doing great, and everyone is glad to have Julie home.

    Thank you Brian & Julie for sharing so much with us! It has been so comforting to be able to walk with you on your journey. Anytime you need, James & I would be happy to take Robin for a walk. –Carrie
