Friday March 16, 2007

Katy was able to cut back on her pain medication today. She just didn’t experience the intense pain as much. The hot soaks are working splendidly! Katy was able to join us in the living room while we visited with some of our extended family. Dan, Julie, and Danae came over to greet Mary Louise and Elaine as they stopped in on their way back to Georgia. Tonight Katy was able to play a game of Settlers of Catan. Colin won the game, but I know she was happy just to have a visit from Colin, Jenn, and Annelise, and be a part of what was happening. It is such a simple thing, but after the many times she has had to be in bed or at the hospital it is just pure joy to see her happy in her home doing all the things she has always enjoyed. We are grateful tonight as we settle in, and see that Katy is doing so well. Our day was normal. So our gratitude for answered prayer is filling our hearts. We are looking forward to the weekend, and hopefully an outing or two.

    Hey Katy!
    What a nice picture! We are so glad to hear that your feeling a little bit better and were able to enjoy some time with your extended family this evening. How exciting!! We’ll continue to pray for many more normal days. Hope to talk to you soon. Love, Candice & Crystal

    Katy,
    It is so good to see you up and about, and I am so GLAD that you can be part of the fun, at least for a little while. Funny story abuot games. when I was 13 and very sick, I was in the hospital for over a month, so now when we play Monopoly….I know how much all the properites are from memory. It makes people that have never played with me marvel, at how I know all htat in my head. Yup!! Board games are the answer to keeping yourself occupied when youa re sick, and it creates a lot fun memories along the way. It’s kind of like the silver lining to a cloud.
    take care

    What a nice family picture! It’s so good to see you doing so well, Katy - and I have seen a picture of your grandad that Annelise reminds me of. You have probably seen it yourself - in his (my) mother’s lap, with brother & sister LeRoy & Lois on either side.

    Hey Katy! I want to tell you about my friend, Betty. She is a Mentor in our Women’s Bible Study. She has never met you, but every week she asks me how you are doing and I know she prays for you faithfully. She keeps up with reading your blog, and says an extra prayer every time she passes your house. She is a woman of God and a great example to the ladies in her group as well as the rest of us. I just thought you might like to know!

    Yea! for hot soaks, games and a day we hope there will be many more of. Great to see pics of Colin, Jenn and Annelise, also Paul Burton. Wonder if he isn’t picking up some female interest with this picture! Have a blessed Sunday, Katy! Love, Aunt Lil
