This is me and John's little poodle Coco. This picture was taken the night before his accident, we were out walking the neighborhood looking at every one's garden.
Coco has always slept with John every night. The first night of the accident he begged me to go home and get Coco, that he could not sleep without her. I have never cried so much as I had to tell him we couldn't get Coco. I told him I couldn't because the hospital wouldn't let her in. He was really drugged up because of the Morphine, and he told me I could sneak her in under my shirt and they would never notice. I sent my kids down to the gift shop to buy him a little dog to sleep with. They brought the little dog back up and I put her by John's side. He woke up and asked me if it was Coco. I said yes, honey it is Coco.
He had me pick it up and show it to him. He looked at me and said , " I may be drugged up but I am not stupid now go get Coco." He finally accepted that Coco could not come up and slept with the little dog at his side.
John is doing better. The infection is gone! He has had some movement of his bowell's, and they have one more surgery to perform tomorrow. It was supposed to be today but it was moved up because of several trauma victims being brought in. If all goes well he will be in Rehabilitation in one week from surgery. He is going to need alot of prayers because he is still having a hard time. Thank you everyone who is sending cards, they have cheered him up so much! He is like a little boy every time one comes for him. And thanks to everyone for your prayers, I don't think John would have made it without you. *love nita*
