Many have been asking how I’m doing, so I figured it was time for a little update. Thank you all for your many prayers…. God is still just blowing us away with my recovery progress!
I am able to cook every day, even if it’s just a crockpot meal, which is way more than I could do before. I’m driving, homeschooling both kids, and soaking up all the family time I can. I am in awe every time I get up and walk across a room. I go grocery shopping with the kids to help a couple of times a month, which I haven’t been able to do in about 6 years. LOVE me some grocery shopping!
I am showering standing up, and some days I can step in or out of the tub without the handrails! I am sleeping much better, and my sleeping/waking hours have adjusted themselves to almost normal!
I am attending worship as often as possible, and can’t wait till I can attend in the evenings, too. I am able to write and color again, so I’ve started Bible Journaling and Bible Marking, and those have been precious outlets to me. My speech is much stronger and better, only giving me trouble if I get overly tired or am sick. My singing voice is coming back. And I’ve even started losing a little weight.
Please continue to pray for us. I get sick often, as my immune system is still very much impaired. When I’m sick and my symptoms return, I have great fear that I am losing what I’ve gained.
My feet both have plantar fasciitis from the muscle loss, so it is excruciating to stand or walk for long periods of time, and I still feel like I spend an inordinate amount of time with my feet up to keep the pain and the swelling in check. I have a long way to go, and am not a naturally patient person.
Will you praise our great God with us?
