Wish I Had More To Report

Good morning, y'all! Please forgive me for not putting something on here last night. I didn't see Bethany today, but I did talk with her for a bit on the phone. When Captain America saw her last night she didn't write anything down for me to blog. So he was going to go home and email me a summary of her day, I suppose. Anyway, my daughter ended up getting sick and I went to lay down with her in bed to help comfort her and I ended up dozing in and out throughout the night (depending on when she would wake up running to the bathroom).

So as of this morning, I still don't have anything from Captain America. So I will just tell you from what I heard from her on the phone. She sounded good still. She said she was eating much better than before. She even ate a whole chicken breast at lunch with some cucumbers. She said on Wednesday she only saw the psych for about 5 minutes and then again for about 5 minutes on Thursday. She said she doesn't like the fact that she is "stuck" there all day and night only to talk to someone for 5 minutes. So she hopes that Captain America will break her out of there. hehe. Then we just chatted back and forth about this and that. Not sure what all we talked about. She doesn't get much time on the phone so it was a short conversation. But I am always glad when she can call. Hopefully tonight I'll have more to report. Sorry this update is short.

I wanted to share a picture with you though. Yesterday it rained. I had just picked my kids up from school and made it back home. When we pulled into our driveway, this AWESOME rainbow was in the sky. I have never seen a rainbow so large and so bright and so pretty in my life. The picture doesn't do it justice! Thought I would share it with y'all.

Hi Hilary! How are YOU doing? I'm sure it is hard for you seeing what Bethany is dealing with and trying your best to help her. Your photo is beautiful. You should frame it for Bethany, as a sign of hope for the future. Take care.

Lovely photo Hilary, thanks for sharing that and the info on Brittany. Sounds like she is doing much better.
All her fans need to go and buy something from her store. That will make her happy when she comes home!

What a stunning photo. Love Laura's idea of framing it for Bethany. It will remind her of God's love and promise of a bright future.

Thank you for popping in to let us know how things are. I know that some days will be quieter than others with little or nothing new to report. Bethany's doing really well if she's managing to eat more.

Hope your little one is on the mend and that you're not stretching yourself too far. You all know that Bethany is being taken care of, so don't forget to take care of yourself and your children too. That goes for Brent too. He needs to make sure that he's doing ok too or he'll not be able to be there for Bethany.

Much love to you all xxx

Love the picture of the Rainbow. A reminder that after the rain, there comes the rainbow, and so it is in our lives. I can understand Bethany's frustration at how the mental health system works; it's much the same here in Australia. My daughter has experienced it, and I feel there is a lot of room for improvement, considering how many of us will suffer from depression or some form of mental illness. Thank you for the update, Hilary.

The picture is beautiful. I dont think we have rainbows like that in Indiana, lol. In fact there isnt a whole lot of anything here. It would be very frustrating not to be getting anymore attention then 5 minutes from the person that is supposed to help you but Im sure it will all work out. Its great to hear Bethany is eating better. Hope your little one is feeling well soon. You all are in my thoughts and prayers.
