WELL WHAT A CRAZY PAST FEW DAYS WE HAVE HAD! WITH SO MUCH GOING ON HEALTH WISE I HAVEN'T HAD ANY TIME TO JUST TAKE A BREAK FROM THE "HOSPITAL LIFE" BUT ON SATURDAY AFTER A HECTIC WEEK IN THE HOSPITAL WE GOT ON A PLANE TO NORTH CAROLINA!
ELVIS ACTED LIKE A COMPLETE PRO IN THE AIRPORT AND ON THE PLANE! HE REMAINED FOCUSED THROUGH EVERYTHING INCLUDING WHEN WE WERE ASKED TO GO BACK AND FORTH THROUGH SECURITY MULTIPLE TIMES JETBLUE LOOKED AFTER US VERY WELL, GIVING US PLENTY OF SPACE AND WERE VERY ACCOMMODATING! ELVIS LOVED LOOKING OUT OF THE WINDOW AND DESPITE GETTING VERY HOT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE FLIGHT HE REMAINED AS COOL AS COULD BE! IT WAS THE FIRST TIME IN A LONG TIME BEING ABLE TO WALK THROUGH THE AIRPORT INSTEAD OF BEING IN A WHEELCHAIR!
WHEN WE ARRIVED IN NORTH CAROLINA, ELVIS FINALLY MET MY DAD AND SISTERS! THEY INSTANTLY FELL IN LOVE WITH HIM AND WE WENT OUT ON A COUPLE SHOPPING TRIPS FOLLOWED BY LUNCH AT THE COUNTRY CLUB AND FINALLY UP TO THE DRIVING RANGE TO PLAY SOME GOLF! ELVIS AND I LAYED ON THE GRASS WATCHING EVERYONE PLAY AND JUST RELAXED. MY MUM ARRIVED MONDAY AND FINALLY THE FAMILY WAS COMPLETE! WE AREN'T ABLE TO GET TOGETHER MUCH AS WE ALL LIVE IN SEPERATE STATES/COUNTRIES SO THIS WAS THE FIRST TIME ANY OF THEM MET ELVIS! WE SPENT A LOVELY RELAXING TIME WITH FAMILY INCLUDING AN ADVENTURE TO BUY AN OVEN AS WE HAD MANAGED TO BREAK OUR LAST ONE (ELVIS WAS NOT AMUSED BY THIS TRIP AND FOUND IT RATHER BORING )
THEN TO MAKE IT EVEN BETTER MY CHILDHOOD BEST FRIEND DROVE ALL THE WAY FROM VIRGINIA TO COME VISIT! IT WAS A LOVELY TIME WITH ALEX AND NATALIE, GOING OUT TO DINNER WITH MY FAMILY, GETTING OUR FAVORITE ITALIAN ICE AND A NICE BREAKFAST ADVENTURE! I HONESTLY COULDN'T THINK OF ANY OTHER TWO PEOPLE TO DRIVE DOWN AND MAKE AN ALREADY LOVELY WEEK EVEN BETTER ❤️ I SMILED AND LAUGHED THE MOST I HAD IN THE PAST WEEK! ELVIS LOVES BOTH ALEX AND NATALIE AND CAN'T WAIT TO SEE THEM AGAIN! IT WAS VERY DIFFICULT SAYING GOODBYE TO THEM BUT WE ARE ALREADY PLANNING OUR NEXT ADVENTURE
THE REST OF THE WEEK WAS SPENT RELAXING WITH FAMILY AND THIS AFTERNOON WE ARE HEADING BACK TO BOSTON. ELVIS HAS LOVED NORTH CAROLINA AND ALL THE FRIENDS HE HAS MADE HERE AND WE CERTAINLY DON'T FEEL READY TO TRAVEL BACK BUT WE KNOW WE HAVE IMPORTANT APPOINTMENTS BACK AT THE HOSPITAL!
ELVIS HAS LOOKED AFTER ME EVERY SECOND OF THIS TRIP ALLOWING ME TO DO THINGS I WAS NOT ABLE TO DO LAST TIME I WAS HERE AND IN THE TIMES I STRUGGLED OR MY HEALTH STARTED GETTING THE BEST OF ME HE PICKED ME RIGHT BACK UP! HE IS THE ONLY REASON I WAS ABLE TO MAKE IT DOWN TO NC FOR THIS SHORT GAP IN BETWEEN HOSPITAL DAYS TO SPEND TIME WITH MY FAMILY AGAIN!
ELVIS IS MY HERO ❤️
TOMORROW IT WILL BE BACK TO THE HOSPITAL AND FIGHTING TO KEEP ME LIVING THE BEST QUALITY OF LIFE POSSIBLE! THANKFULLY I HAVE ELVIS BY MY SIDE TO MAKE SURE THIS HAPPENS WE HAVE A FEW EXCITING ADVENTURES PLANNED BEFORE SURGERY SO WE WILL KEEP YOU UPDATED!
LOVE FIONA AND ELVIS
Appts this afternoon for X-rays and Dexa scans! Dexa scans measure Eve’s bone density. We will discuss the results tomorrow. But this evening we had a fun meet and greet with Some CPs and fans! I think we all enjoyed it but maybe Finn the most of all since he got so many extra scratches!! Finn has claimed the pullout couch for his own personal bed in our room!
Thank you Jennifer, Joan and Kathy Caywood for today’s visit!!
and from ila... maybe our #1 cake taker....
AJay, I am still in the hospital, it is going on four weeks. The virus is over, but I am dealing with what the virus has done to my body. It did a lot of damage to my heart, my lungs and kidneys. My cardiologist has exhausted all treatment he told me he threw the book at me and everything else he could try, He never gave up, kept trying to make it function properly and they called in a kidney specialist and damage has been done and he too exhausted all he could do and more, therefore I am going on dialysis.
I have had excellent care with with top notch specialist.
I have outstanding insurance coverage, so there is no problem getting the care I need and the best.
My started my dialysis this week and when they see it is possible to leave, II will then go to a rehab center before I go home.
My intentions were to get home to give you a report and of course to Carlene and CP's. This has been a very difficult time and very difficult decision I've had to make. My family has been with me all the way and I could not have made it through it without them.
I would appreciate if you would
pass this on to Carlene and to the CP's. You have my permission to do so.
Love you and thanks for your concern for care.
