Something to hold on to...

Home Again

I am home. May I just say it is amazing how much rehabilitating value there is in a shower! Awww. I feel so much better. I feel like I have no neck, due to swelling and what neck I can identify does not want to move very well, but these things seem minor. Oldest son took youngest back to college town so he is staying there for the weekend. Husband and I had a quiet return home, after that shower and a delicious lunch of pb&j (which actually was delicious) I took quite a long nap.

Husband has been caring for me ever so gently in ways you just could not ask everyone. Let's say that he has become very good at wound care and fetching. My neck is very stiff, I still have the deep voice, and I am still bandaged. I am not sure if I will attend church tomorrow or not. Part of me thinks that I will absolutely go, and that wild horses could not prevent me from going. The other part thinks I am not so sure. I will wait till tomorrow to decide. I hate to miss because these are many of the people who have carried us this last month. I would miss the youth during our second hour. I did not mention this yet, and hesitated to do so, but one of our amazing blessings came last week from the youth and sponsors at church. We were blessed with a generous gift from them which helped so much this week with transportation and meals. These kids reached out to us with so much love and concern. I just want to say that if any of you have an opportunity to work with the youth at your church you should try it. These kids will amaze you.

My post op appointment is this Wednesday afternoon. I am not sure if the lab results will be available yet. We will just play the waiting game again, but I know how to wait. God has perfected that trait.

It is so odd, but I am already bored at home. I don't really feel like shopping or going out. But after a shower and a nap I feel like a new woman. I am accepting visitors.

Oh how I wish I could visit today! I'd bring you blueberry jam made by me and Grasshopper. =)

I'm glad you are on the mend and at home where you can enjoy the coziness of your own home. I am even more glad that God was not only faithful to be with you, but that He did such amazing things for you the whole way through. It's very fun when we get a "yes" from God in response to a prayer, and I have to say He gave more than one "yes" in this case. You and Uncle Steve will be in my prayers still, and I look forward to visiting you soon!

Off to go tackle the packing of the kitchen....

You are in my thoughts,
