it's been a while...

Well it's ben a while since I've last posted...that kinda sounds like a confessional. Who knows, maybe that's what this is. This morning I woke up with a killer headache, AND for the first time since the Montezuma's revenge, when Shane and Casey were here, throwing up. That has to be the absolute worst! Not to mention that they have plenty of meds to help curb it, but sometimes they just don't seem to work.Uggghh! So came into the ER around 7:30am and they finally gave me enough meds to knock me out...I woke up around 6:30pm. No more throwing up, still nauseous but that I can handle. It's funny what you remember in the throws of sickness, but when I was was signing in to the ER there was a younger woman signing in next to me, she was wearing thin long leggings and a thin black tank top, a wee bit small, and not a stitch of underwear. My first and only question...why? I mean, I did have my PJ's on, but maybe it's just me, or Memphis, but underwear might have been a good choice...just sayin'. I also have random memories, of an older woman and older man yelling at some doctors for their shots, and then I remember someone hollering "Chill Out" to one of them. Not sure if this was a narcotics induced dream or for real, I'll check with Jamie i the morning about it.

Either way, I really am getting very good care here in Memphis, no matter what hallucinations I'm having.

So I did have a really great dinner visit with my wonderful friends Blake and Barbara. I've always known there was a divine reason that I found the job in Valdosta, and had the smarts to jump on it when it was offered to me. Valdosta, and VSU have been the best to our family, not only through this crap, but from the second we got there. Val-D and it's people rocks, and I promise that's not the drugs talkin'!

Speaking of Val-D, Jamie and Gus are heading back via flight in the morning...thanks Mark W! I believe my sweet Al is gonna pick them up in ATL and they'll be in town with momma and a bunch of other folks, packing up our stuff to bring back to Memphis. SO looks like we'll be selling or renting, for a while. Selling is OK with me, cause we've already decided that we'll probably just rent for a while when we get back. We're thinking we'll buy somewhere towards Hahira, or in the country some place.

SO give Jamie a call if you wanna catch up with him. his new number is 1-901-606-2041. Wish I could be there to see you all too! Soon! Very Soon!

Bon Courage!

  1. Danielle, you are my hero! I know we haven't met, but my other half, Brian Harwell, and your Jamie are connected through high school and friends, and I have had the pleasure of making his acquaintance. I've been following your blog, hoping to find a mention of something you need so that we could step in to assist you, and have been so very impressed with your iron will and your positive spirit. Since Brian and I are chefs, the best thing we could offer is food, but are at the ready with anything. Please let us know when you and your family are hungry---we would love to bring you all dinner! xoxoxosam and brian ( or
