just talked to sydney a little while ago.. . .doctors unwrapped her hands and pronounced that the skin grafts looked great on both hands/wrists!!!....what a relief!!!! . . . they said that they may discharge her from the hospital as early as tomorrow. ... of course this caused the poor child to become extremely anxious as she isn't sure she is ready to face that challenge as she is still extremely sore on her hip and is till walking very gingerly. . .she isn't sure how she will manage, go to class, cafeteria, etc. .. .i assured her that we would face each challenge one at a time. ..lets just concern ourselves simply with getting back to the dorm first, then take on each challenge one at a time, and if we approach them that way, they won't be too overwhelming, nor will they be insurmountable. . .i told her that they wouldn't be letting her go if they didn't truly believe she was capable and ready (they know she's headed back to a dormitory situation) ...that seemed to calm her down a bit ....

anyway, we are one releived bunch around here ...and trust me, we never would have made it this far without all of you!!! . . .now, if you all can just survive eagret's cooking in ocala, we'll all have it made :lol:

    I've been away from the forum lately Max, and don't know what happened? Whatever happened, good to see she's doing better. Mike

    That is great. I got the one word text reply when I asked her if they removed them yet.........."yep".

    You are such a great Dad. Words of wisdom - I don't think her apprehension could have been handled any better.

    Glad to hear all is turning out well.

    That's great news. I'm sure sydney will get a hero's welcome back at school. No doubt, she'll get invited to more beer parties than ever before! :laugh:

    Great news... I'll tell the Staff here at the Chicken Ranch the good news. I know they will be happy.

    Speaking of "happy" the "Girls" want to know when you're coming back to the Ranch for another uh, uh, 'visit.'

    As soon as the pollen season is over I'm doing a walk-through video of the Coop to immortalize the improvements since you were here. I think you will be impressed. After all you were the first 'official' visitor to the Coop after it was announced that the Coop was finished.

    So glad to hear the good news, I am sure it will take a bit to get back into the swing of things, but with such great parents, she will make the transition as well as anybody can.

    Looks like answered prayers!

    Now, as far as egret - I don't think even this great group can generate enough prayers for anyone brave enough to sample his cooking... :evil:

    Question: Are there ambulances and stomach-pumping equipment nearby at the Ocala Fest?

    That's Great news Max, I felt in my heart this is the way it would go. She had done so very well, what a gal.

    I'm sure those back at the Dorm will help her along. My heart goes out to all of you.

    Please tell Spawn we know she will do just fine, if not come here for support.

    Nuff said.

    My Best,

    Great news Max!
    I never doubted the Sydster! After all, she puts up with you, doesn't she ?? ;)

  • BoatmanBoatman Posts: 854
    Thats wonderful news. Apparently all of the thoughts and prayers that were said on her behalf were listened to by a higher power. Great news.
  • GunnarGunnar Posts: 2,305
    Great news. One step at a time is my motto. I hope she can catch up in school. It would be a shame to loose a semester even though she won the more important battle.

    Well done Max! You have survived another one of life's doing's. Once she gets back to the girls at the dorm, she be back roaming the floors at night. The daily phone calls will drop back to the weekly ones again. All will be back to normal. She will be in goods hands.
    Glad everything worked out for the best.
