"It was the best of (surprises)..."

...and the worst of (surprises)."

We're home from our "one day round trip" to see my sister. We're exhausted and we have a very busy day tomorrow. Tomorrow is DaGrandparents 55th wedding anniversary, I have "treats" for before-church fellowship, DaHubby's leading worship, then after church dinner out with DaGrandparents and all the siblings and their spouses.

We left the Vikings in the care of Auntie S and Uncle J for the day to keep the kids from having to be stuck in the van for about 5-6 hours. Then, it was nearly like a date! LOL DaHubby and I had nearly 2 hours of uninterrupted conversation! *wink*

So, we called my dad when we were a half hour away and were pleasantly surprised to hear that Chelsea had been released from the hospital! She'll be at my dad's indefinitely. Praise God she's healing so quickly. It's hard to believe she had the accident AND surgery on Wednesday!

She is still on significant pain killers and in a lot of pain. In addition, she must take her temperature regularly to watch for infection and internal bleeding returning. And, she'll return to the hospital in a few days for more blood work. She looks as one would expect. And, it's starting to sink in what's happened and what the repercussions might be.

Unfortunately, my concerns about her medical history were confirmed. There have been many things going on with her that I was not privy to that have come out into the open as a result of this accident. It so saddens me. Her hard years and hard decisions have come back again. *sigh*

Please continue to pray for the situation...I'll update more later.

Some people have to overcome so much in life.

But she's out of hospital now, and you both has some private time together.

Glad to hear your sister is out of hospital. Giving God praise for moving in her situation.
It's also good to know you had a safe trip there and back!
