I’m sitting here in the nurses’ lounge looking at the website and all of your wonderful comments. I want you to know that when I woke up this morning, I had one goal: it was to get to the nurses’ lounge! Here it is, five o’clock, and I made it. I wish it were as easy as it was for Dorothy in Wizzard of Oz to get home by tapping my slippers together three times, saying “There is no place like home!”
I had physical therapy this afternoon and I felt like an old woman by the time I was done. I know that you are praying for my strength and it is giving me the drive to try my best. It is true that this whole health challenge came as a big surprise, but I find that putting my lipstick on makes life seem more normal!
I have spoken with my doctor today about the possibility of getting home by the weekend. She said that I have a few goals to accomplish before I can be released. I explained to her that my Granddad’s 80th Birthday celebration is Sunday and she said, “Well maybe I could let you go home for the day.” I must be doing well enough for her to consider letting me do that.
The encouragement I receive from your comments gives me such a lift. I can see clearly why the Lord asks us to encourage one another. I am so blessed!
