Day 2: It Was a Good Day

Ice Cube got it right back in 1993. And I can’t think of a better way to describe today. But, instead of “no hog”, there was “no naus”. And she wasn’t “freaking brothers everyway like M.J.” on the court, but you should have seen the way she tore around E unit today for a three-minute walk after being comatose the entire day yesterday. The nurses gave a collective heartfelt greeting as she emerged from her room with her 100-pound IV stand in tow.

And she didn’t have to use her “A.K.” either, because she had her PCA (Patient-Controlled Analgesia – morphine!). Far better stuff if you ask her. It wasn’t even sad that there was not any Yo! MTV Raps on, because she got through two episodes of Lost and watched Grey’s Anatomy. The only fool trying to “blast” her was nearly everyone for telling her how cute she looks. The Lakers didn’t beat the SuperSonics, but Joe Andrew switched from Clinton to Obama. And she sure did “grub out”. Some small pieces of fruit from a fruit cup and some apple juice. Unfortunately, she wasn’t as drunk as Ice Cube was, but then again, he just doesn’t know how wonderful it is to be almost drunk on saline solution, because she was a mouth-rinsing champ today!

It was a good day

Josh, I can't wait to meet you. You are awesome on the blog! Thanks for updating all of us who are just dying to call her, but resisting and checking the blog instead.

I'm so glad you are better today Erica! Hoping it'll only get better from here.

Make sure she's eating well!

I recommend a fat burger at 2AM.
