UnDomestic

Writings of a teachermom, choosing to stay home with her kids, while loathing all domestic responsibilities! In late Aug. 2008, I was diagnosed with Triple Negative breast cancer. After surgery, chemo and radiation, I was given theall clear. However, in the late summer of 2008, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor, which metasticized to other areas.

Birthday in the Hospital

Cari arrived home from U of M on Monday night and had a good Tuesday at home. She had her old spark back with good conversation and scooting around the house in her wheel chair. Yesterday started out with a visit with Physical Therapy and visits from two friends. But mid afternoon Cari had 2 seizures and she was transported to the hospital. She is in ICU and will be going through testing again to address this issue. Not the way she would have wanted to spend her Birthday. Please lift her up in prayer that the reason for this happening will be determined and that the correct medication to keep this under control will be given.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY CARI!!!!

Oh how I wish we could all fill up your room/or house with balloons or something but that just wouldn't work right now in ICU so maybe this picture in your head will be just as nice. ;-)

Thanks for the update Marybeth....much prayer from us to all of you!

Happy Birthday, Cari!!
No, the hospital is not the place to spend your birthday! We will be praying for you and all the family as you make your way past this hurdle. Then you all can celebrate when Cari returns home once again. Cari, I keep saying that we'll keep praying----you keep fighting. You have so many people lifting you up in prayer because you are loved!
Thinking of you today and every day,
Donna Termont (Sarah L. mother)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO CARI!
Thank you so much for the update MaryBeth. I was hoping that Cari was at home surrounded by balloons and a huge cake but that will just have to be postponed a few days! Cari, your birth is one for celebration no matter what the date! My prayers are continually with all of you and with all of the doctors providing answers to your questions. Please do not hesitate to call if you need help with the kiddos. Special Birthday Wishes for Cari And Big Hugs to You ALL! Paula R.

Thank you Cari's mom for the update! My prayers are with Cari everyday even though we have never met and I have been worrying and increasing prayers in her blogging absence. It's hard to say Happy Birthday in these circumstances but I do want to wish her love & healing today.

My prayers are with your whole family as you watch and wait while they figured this thing out.
