It's me, the real Hope back at blogging and connected to the world. Jake just sat down and read me all his post and comments. From what I can remember he was right. I'm in dire need of a shower, hopefully that will come in a day or so, better head movement, some teeth brushing and some food! I did sneak off and shave my legs this morning. It wasn't really the potty break I needed. I need a major hair removal job and I was determined to get it done! A moment of vanity.

The doctor just came in and I'm talking! He asked me to cover my trachea and it worked! He switched it out again and now it's just cap and that will likely come out before I leave. I can manage a feeding tube in my nose, but the trachea thing is freaky!

I have some weird dreams I'll have to share, but have to save up some energy! Kisses and love to everyone including my two sweet boys.

Hope, You are back and I am so excited. I couldn't beleive you bounced back so quickly. It is so good to hear from you.
Jake has been such an angel taking care of you and keeping us informed. I am so proud of him and asked if he would be my nurse when I have to go to the hospital!!!
Keep up the good healing.
I dreamed last night that you were talking to me.

Keep those messages coming.
Trish says the boys are doing great.

OK, now you are giving me no reason to complain about the c-section. Will is going to be expecting too much. There is a possibility you might be a superhero.

FYI - You're a better speller than Jake :)

Missing you-

YAY!!! I can't wait to hear about the weird dreams!

It is so great to hear from you. I am so glad you are doing so well. Can't wait to hear more from you.

Not that I have not enjoyed Jake's blogging. He has made me laugh out loud several time. Jake is a wonderful man. I wish he had a much older brother. lol

Ashlyn keeps asking about your surgery.

Get well soon but don't be getting up in the middle of the night again! Poor Jake. It is funny now but I know it wasn't at the time.

xoxo to both you and Jake.

Love ya.

I am sooooo happy to hear from you. Jake has been great at keeping us updated with your progress. I am glad to see you are healing well. Olivia can't wait until Friday to see Nathan and Reese. Dr. Holt gave her the ok to start getting her ear wet and swimming. It is so great to hear you are up and around a little already. See you soon

Good to hear from you tonight. Take care of yourself and let Jake enjoy another day or two of dominating the converstaion. I am thinking of great smoothies for you when you come home. Wheat grass, kale, spinach, a few berries and a handful of sprouts should get you up and going for a full day with the boys, even Jake won't be able to keep up with you. I guess I need to think about doing laundry because you are going to want my boys back!! Love, Mom.

Hope, I am so happy. I always knew you were going to be fine. I knew you and Jake had expectations to be up and well sooner that expected. You recovered in less than one week! Blogging counts as getting back to normal as does a good shave. I miss seeing you and our car pool discussions. Sam is talking about next year and wanting Nate in her class. Time is flying and soon we will be getting ready for 1st grade,homeroom stuff, and teacher appreciation week. Love Ya R
