Can I get a big ol' AMEN!!!

So, this morning when I got to the parentals house, I walk in and holler " It's boogers". That's my intro so they'll know who's coming in the door and don't get scared. Usually the Mom answers " Ok, boogers" and then I sit and we chat for a while before we get down to doing whatever it is we're going to do that day. Well, after Mom said her speel, what did I hear? Dad!!! Clear as a bell...." who said she wasn't coming today.." I rushed in to the den and there he was, reading the paper like nothing was ever wrong!! Seriously!!!! I asked him how he was feeling and he said " pretty good" and then he chuckled...put the paper down, got up and walked into the kitchen and brought back a glass of water, sat it down on his side table, sat down and said "How was the drive down..was 169 ( hwy) busy?" Completely blew me away!! It was the *&@#! medicine!!!!!!

There was a wee tremor in his hands but by the end of the day even that was gone. He didn't sleep all day...his pawpaw shuffle was better.... he was alert...he was just all around better. WE drove to the mall for our daily walk and he said just to be safe he's just sit and watch. He didn't though. He walked one lap.; not the three us usually would do but he did one! So I called his Dr. this afternoon and relayed all the info...no need to see the Neurologist if his symptoms stay gone for the rest of the week!!
I can't believe we've been poisoning his system for the last month and a half!! He was so miserable with those freakin' Shingles....the Dr. gave him Lyrica to treat the residual pain he had....Sheesh!! He said he wasn't feeling worse not having the meds today so...maybe he'll be fine without it.
Can you believe it?!!
I can't begin to tell you how excited I am. Sisterlittle and I are such Daddy's girls. It's ridiculous actually. But that's us.

When Lovee went down there last night to make sure he wouldn't go upstairs without me being there....ugh.....it was hard. I was mentally pooped so I stayed here. As I've said before, Lovee is soooo good with them. Lovee went upstairs w/ him to get some things and stayed and chatted with them for an hour or so. They talked about that today. How he's so good to them and stuff. Well, yeah.......that's my Lovee......that's what he does...he loves us....... duh.... :)

so I'll be resting a lot better tonight.
phewwwwww......

Yea! That's great to hear. I had a feeling it might be the medicine. Lyrica is great for neuropathic pain, but unfortunately some people get bad side effects.

Glad to hear things improved & everyone is in good spirits.
