Good Morning! Just a quick interruption of the regular scheduled post.
Some of you are returning to this site after reading about, or hearing about a post RedInk posted last night. Unfortunately, we had to temporarily take it down. This is my BRIEF reasoning on why.
RedInk wrote a WONDERFUL, LOVING, HONEST post about our reconnection this past weekend. And what a weekend it was! I can’t really begin to describe all the emotions we have experiences. JUST what I needed and so wonderfully captured by RedInk. Whether it was watching our girls love on each other, my vomit, Red telling me to sit down and shut up, or the true comedy of Red rubbing my feet as the skin slouged off.
But in great moments there are often miscommunications/misunderstandings. Some we addressed in person, through laughter and tears. Others we didn’t know existed…until last night. Unfortunately, the irreplacible memories we created were overshadowed by the “almost correct” health info. Normally not a big deal…until it effects LIL B. I will be brief. We don’t have 100% confirmation of liver presence. We will find out shortly. The HIGHLIGHT of my stay in hospital was that it was determined that it was NOT in my brain.
This requires a STANDING OVATION!
I carry this to the post, b/c we were immediately deluged by phone, (cell and home), texts, twitter, and, calls to LIL B ( COMPLETELY UNACCEPTABLE) about my status. Fortunately, I intercepted these WELL MEANING communications. But it teaches us all a lesson.
When this type of information comes out in the future, please wait to go into detail of the news or the expression of your support, when you text…only with me or Red INK. PLEASE don’t call my house. Please don’t contact Lil B, even to say you support her. WE have entered a new era, where she can’t have EVERY detail w/o direction from Mommy and Daddy. I value EACH & EVERY bit of support, but last night as her head lay in my lap, I felt like I was protecting her from a falling wall. Thank you to those who did in fact recognized that Red’s presence got the 3Bs through a very difficult reentering society. Without Red, Mini Red, and Big B’s mom, we would definitely ALL be back at MAYO! More on that later!
Thank you for listening/reading this. Please don’t take this as an admonition! I was floored once again, by all the amazing expressions of love. Some knew something was off when the post was quickly deleted. Know, I am GRATEFUL that Red wanted to share our love and experience of the past few days. But, I did not appreciate people questioning if I was in the hospital a week (like Red said) or a few days longer, (like I instagrammed) Really? Most of all, I love each of you, for caring and for understanding that we now must wrap B in even tighter arms of love and be mindful of our responses.
ok, that’s it. I feel like this will be an epilogue somewhere! So keepy our eyes open.
Now back to your regular scheduled…post.
Update: That RedInk post will be back with a few tweeks.
