Woke up with itchy stuffy nose, scratchy throat, n fever. Had to call in work so there goes my last pay before christmas n the worst part is i gotta stay away from danny now. I hope i can fight this off by tuesday or wed. :-( and i hope he knows im coming asap. IlyD

Sunday morning at Barb's I awoke with a cold. I had chills n fever and stuffiness. Was starting a cough too. I couldn't go to work because I was working with sick babies, and I couldn't go in to see Danny either. It would be torture staying away I knew...
I wrote a note on Facebook telling all about our wonderful Saturday and Danny's growing movements and activities...

We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.

Yesterday was a wonderful day, for myself, and for Danny. And for his family the past two days also. For three hrs we held hands and he tried every trick in the book to get his hand down to that catheter to yank it out. It was funny but inspiring cuz I could tell he was working toward a task he wanted to accomplish. Those sweet eyes opened alot, and showed emotion. We always hold hands this certain way, with our fingers intertwined, and Dannys have to be a certain way in mine for it to be comfortable for him...I guess one of his ocd things a bit. Well, He repeatedly spread his fingers to hold my hand that way, and twice I tried to change the order of our fingers, and he purposely moved his so they went the way we always do it. That told me alot. I put his glasses on and he reached up to his face in what I thought was a gesture to adjust them, but he looked like he was holding a fake spoon, and sure enough, he was holding his mouth open as if to wait for the food to go in. lol. And I let him feel all around his head, and then he frowned. I told him his head is ok, but he had a bad bump to it and has been asleep for 2 weeks. He then slowly made an "ok" sign with his hand. Its sad that his wrists must be restrained unless someone is holding his hands, but if they werent, within 5min that catheter, vent, IV, BP cuff.....EVERYTHING would be ripped out and thrown on the floor! haha. Twice when I stopped his hand from grabbing that stuff, he made a fist at me, and once gave me the middle finger I think. He never uses that gesture so that was weird. But tears rolled out a few times when I talked abt certain things. And they had him sitting outta bed in a chair even. He's on his way back to us. I am so happy, and so grateful for all the prayers continuing. The thought of losing him was a nightmare. I couldnt understand why after all these years of for true love, and he for someone who loved him enough to love ALL of him and his countless quirks...that we could be just snatched away from eachother. He has much to contemplate when he's feeling better...abt life, family bonds, the importance of making sure you dont stray off the right path.
I posted a picture that says "Sometimes letting go is the only way to know you are meant to hold on" I kinda came to that resolution several days ago when things looked darkest. I sorta "let go" in a way...I mean not really, and not that I wanted to, but I began to pray just for Gods will for Danny to be done, and not just what I and his family wanted. Thats when he perked up...and I knew we were meant to hold on...
