she has been sleeping.
Did you know it's actually rumored that Ruby's chariot
often doubles at odd hours as a big ol' 12 passenger van
that has food particles ground into the carpet,
zillions of fingerprints on the windows,
and smells kind of funky?
It's actually so preposterous that I'm not sure I believe it.
Ruby did ask me to thank
all of her friends around the world
for their love, support and prayers.
Her surgeon, Dr. Heimann was a huge blessing with his medical expertise
and kindhearted way. Dr. H. hung around for a quite a while after,
spending time just visiting with us.
We are so very grateful for his sweet care of our precious Ruby-girl.
Ruby had about 3 or 4 tiny seizures as she was recovering.
Yes, those seizures freaked me out.
Seizures are to be respected and the grand mals
she's had in the past are certainly serious.
Each medical professional who cared in any way for Ruby today
was shown her first-ever picture in the hopes of not only helping
them understand what a miracle she is but imploring them to treat her
with generous amounts of tenderness.
Thank you for all your prayers.
God has, once again, been very faithful.
Ruby is definitely wanting to suck her cherished
recently-found-finger and almost, sorta' kinda' able,
but no doubt, it tastes not-quite-so-yummy as it did about 12 hours ago.
Please, if Ruby comes to mind, pray for her continued healing
and a freedom from any more seizures.
Ruby would thank each of you if she could.
Ruby did mention that she wants me to tell you
she loves you all very much.
But on a side note, Ruby was overheard mumbling
something about whoever had the idea of
not allowing her to eat this morning is still very much
on her 'very, very naughty' list.
Too bad for you - no present from Ruby this Christmas.
