Today was not the success we had hoped for but we did have a little victory when Elana was able to sit up on the side of the bed for about 5 minutes before the dizziness and nausea forced her to lay back down. The hope was that she was going to be able to get out of bed and sit in a chair and maybe even use the bathroom on her own. She didn't reach that goal today but I am hopeful that we are close; maybe tomorrow.
I actually saw a commercial today on CNN international for a Nigerian Bank. Now I know where all the money is that all those Nigerian businessmen need my help to transfer funds to their Swiss bank accounts.
There was one person who thought it was funny that Elana has to wear a diaper while she is suffering from diarrhea and can't get out of bed. When we Skyped with Jesse tonight and told him that Mommy has to wear a diaper too, he started cracking up and said "Mommy is not a little boy, that is funny." At least that brought a smile to Elana to face.
Time to get back to Law & Order (even though I have already seen this episode at least 2 times). Feeling good about tomorrow.
