Well, it’s been a long day, but things are looking better. Kari slept from about 12:00 to 2:00 and then woke up and was doing better. Still not able to talk clearly, and less yelling of the nonsense, but she was still not normal. She ate a small lunch and recognized me. We were able to have a very broken conversation, but the longer she stayed awake, the worse she got. By 4:30 she was yelling and shaking violently again. Jan (whose house we had our wedding reception at and who took us on the “Dead tulip Festival” that is in the pictures section) must have the magic sleepy touch, because after 2 hours of trying to get her to sleep, which was very frustrating, Jan walked in and 20 min. later she was peacefully asleep. I went out to grab dinner and returned around 8:00 to find Kari almost totally normal. Very groggy and still fishing for some words, but definitely “all there” and able to have a normal conversation. She started to wear down around 10:30, slipping back out of reality when she had spasms or pain. It is now 12:30am, and Kari seems to be getting back to sleep. For the last hour she hasn’t made much sense, so it seems pretty obvious to us that what Dr. Balazy said is right and that she basically couldn’t handle things anymore. It’s the body’s way of screaming “get more sleep!!!” at you. She usually does great after long periods of sleep. Anyways, my dad arrived today with the van that was donated to us, and it looks like it will work fine for us. More pictures will be on the website. If you haven’t noticed, the website had a major overhaul which I think looks great. There’s a nice picture on the opening page. Also, if you have time, read about John and Cyndi’s visit. It will give you a better Idea about the day to day activities and has some great pictures on it. Anyways, I’m falling asleep here, so take care and thank you for praying.
