Hi Everyone,

Don’t you love how life changes in a split second?!?

I am so grateful that I was working from home today. This morning Corey was doing so well. The Occupational Therapist from the district came to work with her and she was amazed at the progress she’s made in just a few days. Corey even wrote our address for Brittany!

She was having a lovely morning and early afternoon when all of a sudden the nurse came to get me in my home office. Corey was writhing in pain. We had no idea what was wrong. I have a bag packed with essentials and a copy of her medications for emergencies like this. We got her in the van and rushed her to the ER.

After blood work, a number of tests and an ultrasound we discovered she had a ruptured ovarian cyst. Thank goodness it was only that! I’m also grateful that she has begun to communicate via writing. She answered all the Doctor’s questions with a pad and pen I keep in my handbag! As she started to feel better, I was asking her my own series of questions. Corey still has a sense of humor. She told me “my feet hurt”…she actually wanted a foot massage! When I figured out what she was up to, she just gave me that impish smile…Nothin’ like milkin’ it Cor! I was asking her more questions, including “what else are you trying to write”? Her response…Nothing, I’m done. She closed her eyes and took a nap. We are home now and she is resting comfortably.

Corey I can’t tell you what a wonderful feeling it is to be able to “hear” you. I’m so glad you are feeling better and you were able to tell us what was wrong. I have to admit, I was a little scared we might be taking a “new” detour on today’s path, but I feel less helpless knowing you can talk to me. I love you. Rest well honey, xoxo

To all our friends, I may be going to the beach for the day tomorrow so there won’t be an update…unless of course there is a random high jacking of the carepage from Caitlin…you never know!
