My Mother is doing very well from her surgery. I couldn't be happier:):) She was sent home from the hospital the very next afternoon. She went in for a follow-up with the surgeon on Friday and he gave her an excellent report..:)
I am so relieved...more than I could possibly put in words.
My friend Diana also had surgery..she had both knees done. I have been keeping her in my prayers as well. She is a brave lady:) I'm glad she will be able to do all the things she wants to without pain, when she is all healed up and done recovering. She doesn't live to terribly far from me. Maybe when she feels better she can meet me at our mall and we can visit and shop..and maybe have a coffee or tea too:) Diana, I am keeping you in my prayers.
I have been having daily prayer...(if we're able) with my sweet friend Shelley. We are recieving such a blessing from praying for each other and everyone on our prayer lists...
My sweet Mother gave me this beautiful mug before she had her surgery. With me not feeling well..it gave special meaning to me. It isn't just beautiful on the outside. It is beautiful on the inside too..
It reminded me to be thankful for all the little things that maybe I've been forgetting about. I think sometimes..speaking for myself of course..that when we feel badly..we just sort of forget all the wonderful things that God does for us on a daily basis. The pain medicine of course has made me groggy and not thinking well. But now since I'm not as medicated I have no excuses. So many things have been jumping out at me every time I take a sip out of my sweet coffee mug. I have a wonderful family...I have a roof over my head...I have food on my table..I have the most wonderful friends that a person could ever ask for. Old ones, new ones, even ones I have never met... But each one of them are precious gifts from God. For each kind word, and each loving prayer, I thank all of you :) I am SO grateful :):)
I'm especially grateful for these little furry gifts from God.....I've had lots of good days, and lots of bad...
And on the bad days, these little guys are busy loving and caring for their Mommy....And yes, Teddy is is here and loved too...he just doesn't like laying up close to me like these two fur babies...He has more fur and doesn't get as cold as they do...
Aren't they just adorable? They are like little heating pads. I just love them so much. My family has been really helping a lot too. It is so hard having to realize that some things I just can't do. And that I am just going to have to make adjustments depending on how I'm feeling each day.
I go back in to see my rheumatologist on Tuesday. Next week will be a busy week for me. I'm hoping it all goes well.
I've made a new friend that is suffering with such similar health issues as I am. It has been so helpful writing back and forth...she gives me some encouragement which I definately need. Thank you so much Tabby :) If you have fibromyalgia like I do...her blog is full of information and encouragement. I am so glad to have met her:)
That's all for now. I'ts been a long day and I am ready to head to bed.....
I hope everyone has a wonderful and rested weekend..
