Heidi and the family....

Alex, Kenz and Logan as we prepared to leave the hospital. The kids have been very supportive of Heidi and very close during all of this upheaval and upset. We have enjoyed laughing at the kids and with them.

At one point last night, Chris in the red shirt was on a bed, Alex was sleeping flat out on the floor and Heidi was lying abed. We are home now and Heidi is doing quite well...still unstable and unsteady but she is feeling much stronger and better. Here is Alex lying on the floor with a sheet over his head in the hospital room next to Heidi's bed.

And no, Heidi is not a Muslim woman! She found that after they took off all of the EEG leads that she had super glue hunks in her hair. So, Chris rubbed conditioner in her hair and she wrapped her head in a wet, warm towel. It is now more than 24 hours later and she is still picking glue hunks out of her hair.

We arrived home in Davison around 5 p.m. today and Heidi has been up and trying to walk to the bathroom with her walker. Right now, Chris is setting up a blow up bed in the living room so Heidi can sleep downstairs. She is not able to handle stairs yet. While she is upbeat and happy to be home with her whole family, she is on meds to help with the seizures and she will have to take it easy for awhile. We had a wonderful dinner of chicken and dumplings prepared by Zee, Chris' mom. Kenz and I went to the grocery store to stock up on items we need and again, we filled the car with gas. Seems I have been spending lots of time at gas stations filling one vehicle or another.
