Back to Good – June 29, 2005

God is good! It’s a beautiful day here in the big city of Monroe.

The sun is shining, the birds are chirping (though I can’t really hear them), and my Lisy is home with her baby! I’m so happy! We can be “normal” again. Okay, so we’re never normal (we are after all Johnson’s), but we don’t have to worry about driving to and from the hospital every night leaving Lis all alone and wondering when she is going to get better.

I went home for lunch today and it felt so good. I was so happy and playful. Sogra even noted that I was happy. It was just so nice to see Lis and Lukas reunited and the three of us together. You don’t realize how much you miss and need someone until they’re gone. I needed her and missed her.

So Lis is back home and feeling better. The swelling has gone down, her temperature is normal, her blood pressure is normal but she still has to take medication for her bacteria thing. Everything is going well.

Nothing else to update. Yesterday was Elen’s birthday and Erik took her to some ceramic painting place, dinner, a movie and then home (I think). This weekend we’re going to celebrate Grandma’s, Elen, Randy and Mom’s birthdays.
