Jessie is Home!!

Well, Jessica is home, at last. The doctor came in this morning and decided that she was well enough to go home and enjoy the long weekend. We have to back in a week, to make sure that everything is ok and to have a couple of tests done.

I am SO relieved. It has been a long week, for everyone. Kayla and KC missed school on Tuesday, because they were both so worried about her. Shawn has had less hours at work, so he was able to be the hospital more, but between both work and hanging out at the hospital, he is exhausted. The puppies are so happy to have the youngest member of the pack home. So is the cat, I think.

KC is so thankful that her baby sister is home that she has promised to stay home with us all weekend. You don't know what that means. We usually get cameo appearances from her. You know, being 19, in college, working and having a boyfriend. KC and I have spent more time together this week, watching over Jessica, then we have in months. Strange, how things liek this either make you or break you as a family.

As for Jessica herself, she is beyond happy to be back in her own home. It took us about three minutes to pack up her room this morning. She is itching to get back on line with her friends and make some plans. She even misses school. Poor kid. I wonder if they checked her temperature before we left?

So, everything will be back to normal. The sisters will be squabbling, the house will be trashed (is already), the house will settle into it's routine once again. There is one thing that will be different, though.

I will be different. I will be more thankful this Thanksgiving. This has been a huge wake up call for all of us here. I was reminded, once again, how quickly things can change, how quickly someone that you love can be taken away from you.

I have a lot to be thankful for. My family is together, under the same roof. I have the worldest best blog buddies,and, life, for the most part, is good.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. I'll be back in a couple of hours to get caught up. right now, I'm getting caught up on sleep.

Wow! That kid really bounced back! I'm so relieved. This is the best news!

Do you have restrictions on what she can eat this weekend?

I still don't know what our plans are, other than my mom wants to cook a turkey and I have to get some serious horse time in. No idea what the in-lawrs are doing.

I think you guys might want an hour or so of Pug time?
