Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
I guess the disease had damaged her legs to much to be of much help
MotherHubbard8 says:
yes
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
thats what she told me

Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
Hey Audrey
MotherHubbard8 says:
Hey Kia
MotherHubbard8 says:
Kai even
MotherHubbard8 says:
sorry I know you aren't Kia
MotherHubbard8 says:
(chiuaua
MotherHubbard8 says:
Susie is settled into the room finally
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
thats good to hear
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
I didnt mean for it to sound like I didnt need you or didnt appreciate all you have done earlier because I do
MotherHubbard8 says:
she is better now, and she told me to tell you not to worry about her, she's going to be okay
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
I am sorry if I made you feel unwanted
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
Okay, tell her I said to take care
MotherHubbard8 says:
it's okay
 
 
MotherHubbard8 says:
she's asleep now, on some heavy antibotics and anti Nausea meds
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
thats good she needs the sleep
MotherHubbard8 says:
yes, she does
MotherHubbard8 says:
I know you feel like this is your fault, but it's not
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
I just feel guilty because you should have been at home caring for her
MotherHubbard8 says:
it would have happened even if we were in tennessee or at home
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
and I was giving myself the worklds largest pity party
MotherHubbard8 says:
no, you weren't
MotherHubbard8 says:
not at all
MotherHubbard8 says:
but I think I was
MotherHubbard8 says:
I should be the one telling you how sorry I am
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
I was so focussed on the fact that I cant walk I forgot the world around me
MotherHubbard8 says:
I came to make things better but aii I did was make them worse
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
no you didnt
MotherHubbard8 says:
I did, I brought all my problems to you when I shouldn't have
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
I am feeling better
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
than I have since I have been home
MotherHubbard8 says:
I don't think it has anything to do w. me,
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
it has more to do with you than you realize
MotherHubbard8 says:
it's the influences of Susie, Rebekah Rachel and Lousia
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
no you pay a bigger role than you realize
MotherHubbard8 says:
and I guess now you will be meeting Kendra, Naomi and the whole gang. They are coming b.c Susie is in the hospital
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
I've met Kendra but that was before the accident
MotherHubbard8 says:
well, they will be here in the morning, ALL OF THEM
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
you introduced me before you left Jackson
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
I thought some of them lived away from Home
MotherHubbard8 says:
Missy had to stay behind, Natalie had a break in and is rattled from that, so she is looking after her
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
And Holly had to stay with Missy because of the treatments
MotherHubbard8 says:
yeah, Holly is staying behind as well
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
but I guess i am in for a big meeting LOL
MotherHubbard8 says:
the ones away at college are staying there, to state the obvious
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
yeah
MotherHubbard8 says:
but they might come up next weekend, depending on how things are
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
and Jenna is on her way, I feel as if I am going to be able to relate to her, but I can relate to you too
MotherHubbard8 says:
I'm really sorry, Kai, I started to get overwhelmed and then I started to feel sorry for myself
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
and you were great when I fell earlier
MotherHubbard8 says:
It's pretty routine in my house
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
you just fell to the floor with me LOL, and it made me feel more comfortable, it was nice just sitting there against the couch watching comedies
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
I am just sorry Susie couldnt enjoy in the fun
MotherHubbard8 says:
 learned a long time ago it makes a person more comfortable to feel they aren't alone
MotherHubbard8 says:
and honestly we all fall. I do it all the time
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
I know we all fall
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
But I cant exactly just stand up and dust myself off
MotherHubbard8 says:
when I was on bedrest, I couldn't either
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
I am learning though from you guys, that things like that arent the end of the world
MotherHubbard8 says:
when I came home from the hospital after he was born, I couldn't even feed myself
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
Ugh sorry Audrey that had to be hard
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
At least I still have use of my arms
MotherHubbard8 says:
I very nearly died
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
yeah Im lucky to be alive, did I show you pictures of the aftermath of the car after the accident?
MotherHubbard8 says:
it's amazing
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
its a miracle I got out of that alive
MotherHubbard8 says:
that you got out of there alive
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
a miracle straight from God
MotherHubbard8 says:
Susie feels terriable things turned out this way
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
yeah I understand that hedge of protection we pray for more than ever
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
she doesnt need to
MotherHubbard8 says:
but she does
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
truthfully it helped snap me out of my why me pit
MotherHubbard8 says:
Susie might night talk too much, but she takes everything in
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
yeah Ive noticed shes very thoughtful, very intelligent
MotherHubbard8 says:
if you can believe it, a few yrs ago, I was right were you are
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
I think she brought more books than clothes LOL, of course I noticed Rebekka Rachel did the same
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
you were paralyzed?
MotherHubbard8 says:
I thought I had lost my girls, I was living in a FEMA trailer and was pregnant after being raped
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
oh Wow
MotherHubbard8 says:
and I didn't see any reason to carry on
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
I will shut up now, this is nothing compared to all of that
MotherHubbard8 says:
after Daniel as born, I had planned to kill myself
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
I never wanted to give up per say, just trying to make sense of what happened
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
trying to figure out who I was now if you understand what I mean
MotherHubbard8 says:
I didn't think I deserved to keep him, after I had given my girls up
MotherHubbard8 says:
but my friends pulled me out of it, convinced me to come to California
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
(Can I airmail my Moms puppy to you)
MotherHubbard8 says:
(only if I can airmail "gassy" to you, he's about to kill me w. the fumes)
MotherHubbard8 says:
and that was the best thing to ever happen to me
MotherHubbard8 says:
after I got my girls back and Daniel was born, I started to feel lke I was alive for the first time
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
I am starting to feel that maybe I havent changed as much as I thought I did
MotherHubbard8 says:
I changed a lot, but that's a good thing
MotherHubbard8 says:
but I don't think you have changed at all really
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
I mean physically yes, and it taught me to cherish life more but I am talking about feeling as if my whole world had turned upside down
MotherHubbard8 says:
yeah
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
Physically I have LOL, but thats stating the obvious
MotherHubbard8 says:
you can still do the things you did before, in a different way
MotherHubbard8 says:
I've been thinking about something though, Kai, but I don't want to butt in
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
yes I realize that now, well I cant walk or stand on my own two feet
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
whats that?
MotherHubbard8 says:
my husband is a surgon, one of the best spinal surgon in the country
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
Wow I didnt realize that, wish I had known that before my first surgery
MotherHubbard8 says:
I think you need to talk to him, let him see your information. He may be able to help you
MotherHubbard8 says:
I mean he might not, but you don't know until you try
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
I'd welcome that
MotherHubbard8 says:
you would have to come home w. me though
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
I'd welcome that too
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
change of scenery might be good for me
MotherHubbard8 says:
I think it would
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
besides I have always wanted to meet some of the country stars LOL
MotherHubbard8 says:
I don't live in Tn, I was visiting there when you reached me
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
Oh bummer
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
But Joshua and I are engaged now I heard that this surgery takes months of recovery time
MotherHubbard8 says:
but Rick will see you if you still want him to
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
of course I do
MotherHubbard8 says:
but if it helps, then it would be worth it
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
yeah and even if it doesnt I havent really lost anything
MotherHubbard8 says:
right
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
I dont want to get my hopes up to high though
MotherHubbard8 says:
no, but it's worth a try too
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
my spinal cord was severed, I am actually missing bone fragments
MotherHubbard8 says:
he's the best in the country, so that would be your best shot
MotherHubbard8 says:
and I'm not being partial, he really is the best
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
yeah I know
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
Louisa has been singing his praises as well
MotherHubbard8 says:
yes, he helped to restore the use of her arms
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
I guess the disease had damaged her legs to much to be of much help
MotherHubbard8 says:
yes
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
thats what she told me
MotherHubbard8 says:
he tried anyway
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
I know
MotherHubbard8 says:
and it didn't help much
MotherHubbard8 says:
she is a little more able to help in moving herself around, but she won't ever walk about, baring a miracle
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
Most doctors doubt that I will get full use of my legs back, I may require crutches or braces even after the surgery, but it's better than nothing
MotherHubbard8 says:
any use you can regain is beneficial
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
yeah I have seen her struggle, but she doesnt really let it on that she is struggling
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
I know
MotherHubbard8 says:
and since you are my friend Rick will see you much sooner than if you just tried on your own
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
And I would welcome it
MotherHubbard8 says:
I'll talk to him when he gets here in the morning
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
but I am not going to get under the disillusionment that I will ever run track again the way I used to
MotherHubbard8 says:
you never know
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
I dont want to get my hopes up that high and then have them crushed
MotherHubbard8 says:
Rick should be here in a matter of hours, he hopped a flight as soon as he found out about Susie
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
And I have a feeling in my gut that I will never run in the sense that I had before
MotherHubbard8 says:
yeah
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
But if I could even take a few faltering steps I'd have reason to celebrate
MotherHubbard8 says:
yes
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
And even if that doenst happen I am here I have this ring on my finger I have plenty of reason to celebrate
MotherHubbard8 says:
yes
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
I realize that now last night I was to busy humilating myself to realize that
MotherHubbard8 says:
but if you could get some control back, it would help in just your daily life
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
yes true
MotherHubbard8 says:
so, you really can't lose
MotherHubbard8 says:
it would mean months of staying with me though, think you can stand that?
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
Yes of course
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
Sandie needs time to herself, shes been my round the clock caregiver for a long time
MotherHubbard8 says:
of course some of that time would be in the hospital
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
Thats the part I look forward to the least
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
would I get to go home more often being your husband is a doc? 
MotherHubbard8 says:
but I would be there with you as much as possible
MotherHubbard8 says:
I'm sure we could pull some strings
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
I knew you would be
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
I'm sorry about last night, I was just to embarrased to tell you what happened
MotherHubbard8 says:
I would have been too
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
I can't wear a Cath, because my body reacts to them 
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
not that that sounds apealing anyway
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
LOL
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
about as appealing a root canal 
MotherHubbard8 says:
there is something new I was reading about the other day, you might be able to handle
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
what's that?
MotherHubbard8 says:
a new type of catheter
MotherHubbard8 says:
Susie reacts to them too, certain ones, so her's have to be special ordered
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
I hope it doesnt come to that, I am working on learning to pay attention to the sings
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
sings
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
signs
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
ugh talk about having a dyslexic moment LOL
MotherHubbard8 says:
lol, your bladder sings? 
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
yes didnt you know its musical LMAO
MotherHubbard8 says:
lol
MotherHubbard8 says:
not to start complaining again, but I really wish I wasn't pregnant right now
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
I can understand that
MotherHubbard8 says:
my back is KILLING ME
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
I wish the accident had never happened too, believe me
MotherHubbard8 says:
but this will likely be my last child
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
but at least you will have a beautiful baby to hold in your arms when you give birth
MotherHubbard8 says:
of course, I was not supposed to be able to get pregnent again, and i did
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
yeah you never know
MotherHubbard8 says:
I am going to have to lay down, Kai. I know Susie will be up early tomorrow. They have her scheduled for tests in the morning
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
Okay I need to lay down too, the grief is starting to hit me again
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
I feel silly though, I mean I am alive and I am blessed
MotherHubbard8 says:
are you going to be okay?
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
yes
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
this to shall pass
MotherHubbard8 says:
ok, I will talk to you tomorrow?
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
its still just so fresh
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
yes I will come to the hospital after church
MotherHubbard8 says:
yeah, it is
MotherHubbard8 says:
ok, well, get ready for an onslaught of people
MotherHubbard8 says:
b.c they will all be here when you get here
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
I'm going to Let Joshua drive me, Hes wanted me to go riding with him since I left the hospital, but I would need help itno the truck, I dont mind so much now
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
WOW
MotherHubbard8 says:
yeah, we are a close bunch
MotherHubbard8 says:
and everyone who can, is coming
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
I just hope I am in a postive state of mind tomorrow
MotherHubbard8 says:
if you aren't, they will put you in one
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
I just get so self conscious around new people
MotherHubbard8 says:
I think you will be okay
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
yeah I guess they would understand more than most
MotherHubbard8 says:
they will
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
Jenna called said she is in town, and she is coming to the hospital
MotherHubbard8 says:
just relax and be yourself
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
I'm trying
MotherHubbard8 says:
she called my cell
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
I am hoping to ask her some things, personal things
MotherHubbard8 says:
I think she is going to stay here tonight so I can come back and get some rest
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
Like how she handled her pregnancies and the such
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
thats good
MotherHubbard8 says:
but I'm sure she will be arond tomorrow
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
you need the sleep
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
she said if Susie gets stabalized enough you can take her back to the house, because she knows how to adminster the necessary meds, and how to change her, even move her
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
I cant even imagine how awkward that must be from her chair, but she doesnt seem to let that stop here
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
her
MotherHubbard8 says:
no, she lets nothing stop her
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
I hope I can grow to be more like her
MotherHubbard8 says:
and they are talking about letting Susie come home tomorrow afternoon if things go well
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
when it comes to being comfortable in my own skin
MotherHubbard8 says:
are you going to be  okay w. that?
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
I will be fine
MotherHubbard8 says:
ok
MotherHubbard8 says:
I just wanted to make sure
MotherHubbard8 says:
I just talked to Rick, he said you need to be ready to go by Wednesday, he can see you Thursday
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
Wow thats fast
MotherHubbard8 says:
yeah, faster than I thought too
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
is Susie going to be ready to travel by then?
MotherHubbard8 says:
we will have to see, but he can go back if need be and we can come later, when she is ready
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
ok
MotherHubbard8 says:
but you would be surprised how fast she bounces back
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
thats good
MotherHubbard8 says:
yes
MotherHubbard8 says:
by tomorrow she will probably be sitting up in bed, eating
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
Is Rebekka Rachel going to be coming with you, or does she have to go home
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
I noticed that both girls seem to cheer each other up
MotherHubbard8 says:
she will probably stay until Susie goes home
MotherHubbard8 says:
they are pretty much joined at the hi;p
MotherHubbard8 says:
hip
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
I meant is she going straight back to Nashville or coming to stay with Susie at your house for awhile
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
yeah I can tell
MotherHubbard8 says:
she lives virtually next door to us
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
Sorry I didnt realize they had moved
MotherHubbard8 says:
it's ok
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
out of Nashville
MotherHubbard8 says:
Susie and Rebekah Rachel don't seem to be able to live w.out each other
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
If I dont get to bed soon I am going to fall asleep in this wheelchair, and I spend enough time in this thing I dont need to sleep in it LOL
Kailyn "You Take Life As It Comes" says:
yeah I can tell they are very close
MotherHubbard8 says:
