My daughter, Vicki, is still at OHSU in Portland. And, she is slowly slipping from us. The doctors do not know what is happening in her body. Mostly she is unresponsive and does not know anyone or where she is.
They have sent samples to other facilities around the country and are now waiting for some word.
God has given me complete peace thru all of this. If He choses to take her Home, she will be completely healed (and she will be with Him and her grandparents - now that would be the icing on the cake!!!). If He heals her here on earth, we will have more time with her.
This situation has blown the heck out of my diet and exercise!! Have had little appetite - wonder if I have lost any weight?? And, have been exhausted. Have been able to keep up the little bit of gardening that I do - weeding and watering my flowers. So glad I have some that do not require much - petunias and geraniums. And they are really flourishing.

Finally walked outside this morning - about half mile. The first part is slightly uphill - then downhill for a way - then flat. Was a good walk. I plan to do that each morning the rest of the week. If I am going to increase my steps each day - then I will just have to get out and walk. Won't increase just sitting here at my computer.
Had a good day at work. My son in Portland called to let me know that he went down to Salem to see his sister - Vicki is in the hospital there - diagnosed with MS. She is 54. She is responding to the medication - but the prognosis is still rather sketchy. She will be in the hospital for at least another week as they adjust her medication and as she regains some of her awareness. I know she is in God's hands - and whatever happens will be completely in His control.
