I didn't want to post an update on Nae until we got a definite answer from someone who didn't study only a term of the heart. We took her to her follow up appointment on Monday and he confirmed that her heart looked great. No structural problems, no irregular heart beats, all is good! WHEW good news! We did find out that her blood pressure is on the lower side of normal, so she just needs to make sure she's NOT locking her knees and is aware if/when she gets tunnel vision. And if she does start seeing spots or gets tunnel vision, she needs to LAY DOWN! That way she won't smack her face on the floor and get a pretty bruise on her face and a concussion.So all is well there.
I know a lot of bloggers have posted already about Wise Guy and her little Lola but I just can't NOT post as well. I know from reading a lot of blogs that this loss has hit us all very hard. I know it has hit me very hard. I cried many tears when I learned that Lola was on a ventilator. I sent out texts to various bloggers and we all sent TONS of love. But we were SO hopeful! So much hope. Come to find out that Lola passed away was a HUGE blow to me. I cried, I asked why, I was in disbelief. The first words that came out of my mouth were "NOOOO!" I felt and still kind of do feel betrayed, I just don't know why. Not that knowing why would make any difference, but still! I didn't know what to do with these emotions. I, of course, cried, said a prayer for Wise Guy and her family, but what can I do with these emotions? I went to her blog and I read all her comments that so many people have left and it made me feel a little better. There are NO words that can describe the pain Wise Guy is going through, but I HAVE to believe she can feel the love we are all sending her. So, that's what I'm doing. I am sending Wise Guy all the love I have. In addition to that, I am also sending love to everyone else that knows Wise Guy.
Wise Guy, we love you and we'll be here for you always and forever. Lola is in our hearts and that will never change.
