I had another visit with the doctor today and received a good report. My body seems to be healing, slowly but surely. I'm still very sore, but each day I feel like progress is being made. I will continue to check in with my doctors over the next couple of weeks and have the open wound monitored.
One of the hardest parts of all of this is that our family life has been turned upside down. The kids have been away from home for the past three weeks. And while I'm so thankful that they've been well-cared for by their grandparents, little habits and attitudes have found a way to creep in. I am looking forward to things getting back to normal. It will take a while, but it will happen.
Mickey has spent the last couple of days here at the house. He is a good helper, always willing to fetch something for me. We played a game together on the Wii for a little while, but I'm not as good of a player as his sisters are. He almost misses them. :)
Bookworm has gone to spend a couple of weeks with my dad. His wife has Alzheimer's, and Bookworm is going to be her companion. She called today and told me she worked for a few hours in the garden and baked a blueberry cobbler. She is in her element!
The little girls are floating between our house and their grandmas' houses. It is so much fun listening to them chatter back and forth. They never run out of things to talk about.
Yesterday I received a basket of goodies from my "Secret Encourager" at school. She blessed me with several of my favorite things, including the latest Real Simple magazine. I'm going to enjoy browsing through it tonight. If we had T.V., I'd probably watch the NBA Finals. Now that the Magic are out, I'm pulling for the Celtics.
Enough of my ramblings...have a great day! :)
