I am pleased to say that Kevin slept all night last night - 11 hours to be exact. I can only imagine how wonderful it was for him to have uninterrupted sleep for the first time in nearly 8 months. I will admit that he wanted to go back to the hospital the first thing this morning, but I understand because to him - that's home. However, I stood firm and told him he had to stay and he is safely sleeping once again in my bed.
Hopefully - HOPEFULLY - I can get some sleep tonight though. I just couldn't last night. Fear, I guess. Stupidly, I kept checking to see if he was breathing??!! Like he's some kind of newborn or something...
But we had a good (and busy) day. First, we went to Citrus Park Mall and ate at the food court. We then came home and took a little half hour nap and then we went to the movies again, followed by a trip to Wal-mart and then we picked up dinner and came home to eat.
The thing that was most awesome was going to WM. Kevin bought himself a watch, some sunglasses, some toiletries and a bunch of junk food, lol. Matter of fact, here is a pic my sister took with her cellphone:
I was so excited too, because he never once got tired and turned into himself like he used to. He is just doing so incredibly awesome!
I am going to hit a few questions now and then try to get some sleep. Sharon - Breezy would love to tailgate with you! Please find Moe and get her phone number. I already asked Moe to try to find you because I am sure you are heading down soon. (Thanks, Moe! I love you!!)
And to Debbie and everyone else that mentioned the game - I don't see us being able to go. I know that there are no tickets available for anyone at the hospital and they are so not in our budget. Breezy is even willing to go by herself and I honestly did look them up to purchase her one, but I just can't justify it. We don't have jobs and money is just too tight - not to mention how expensive the tickets are. I do think Breeze will just end up sitting outside the stadium and partying with all the other Steelers fans that couldn't afford it, lol. And who knows...she may even know a bunch of them!
And I have to say - I thought about how typical the male and his remote pic was, but I was not brave enough to say it, lol!
And I am going to end with a request if you don't mind. Kevin was part of a youth group when he was younger and the youth minister was very good to Kevin when there was no male influence in his life. It turns out that the youth minister has a year old baby that has cancer and is having surgery (or may have had it) this week. Could everybody keep baby Jayna in their thoughts? And my heart goes out to you and yours, Pete.
And now I am going to leave y'all with a video that this youth group made. Kevin is in the dark brown shirt with the long black hair. Thanks Nicole, for letting me know about this:
