I was originally going to share more about this past week, but after thinking about it, I realized it will not help me right now in my healing process. It was far rougher than I could have anticipated, but it is BEHIND me now and I would like to document my blessings in the healing process. I am doing this to help myself move forward in healing.
Blessings..big and small
**My SIL came from SC last week and took care of the girls and made sure they got to where they needed to be each and every day...not an easy task! The cuteness above, that you will not recognize, is her little boy. How cute is this picture of him and Ella together?
**My SIL from England is here this week tending to all that needs to be tended to while I am working on healing.
**Our church and local Mom's Club has organized 2 weeks worth of meals for our family..leaving one less thing to have to worry about.
**My kitchen counter is full of beautiful flowers and cards...making my days brighter!
**I have a visiting nurse coming to my home, who is MOST helpful with her advice!!
**My catheter and bag was removed today at the doctor's office!!!!! Coming home with that has not been very pleasant, but it is now gone! Just when I was getting the hang of using it and changing it. : )
**I am now able to shower myself!!
**I have days where the pain is unbearable(yesterday was one of them) but I also have days that are not so bad...TODAY is one of them!! Thank-you, God!
**I am having trouble with pain while I am lying down, but last night figured a semi-comfortable way to sleep sitting up in a chair!!
**I have a stent in for another month that is very painful, but I am now one week closer to getting that removed.
**My parents, who have been a big help in getting me to appointments and such!!!
**I am not a person who likes to depend on others, that has had to change for this all to happen. That is a lesson that will only bring me closer to God as I learn to completely depend on Him for all of my needs.
**I usually try to remember one day at a time...my healing has changed that gear to one hour at a time. I WILL get there!!! My love to all of y0u for your prayers...HUGE blessing!!!
Be Blessed, my friends!!!!
