Spring Cleaning

Enough about bone pain! Enough about misery! Here is some good news. Today the surgeon who saw Katy checked her out and said he was surprised at how well she has healed considering the high dose of prednisone she is on. That was praise indeed. He also said she can now take hot baths. Paul measured her last night and discovered that if we bought a big storage bin from Wal-mart that was at least twenty-one inches high, we could put the storage bin inside the bath tub and fill it to the brim for an entire body soak. Can you believe we actually found such a tub today? Katy is looking forward to soaking her bones, and we are looking at recipes on line for detox herbs and spices to mix into the water.

Thinking about ways to distract ourselves from the reality of pain, I decided Katy’s room could use a make over. We have been busy spring cleaning her room and I have beautiful lavender fabric for new curtains that I’ll be making. She has gotten into the cleaning mode and is busy dusting and thinking about changing some of her furniture around. God is good. I have to add that because I asked Him to show me creative ways to keep Katy moving forward and plowing through this tough time, and the bedroom makeover was His idea. I’m thankful for a practical Heavenly Father.

Katy wrote an update tonight. Click on Katy’s Musings for her medical report. She has great news.

    Aww, what a wonderful day it sounds like you have had!! There is definitely something healing about a nice long hot bath. I hope that you are able to fully relax and enjoy it. :) How exciting it is to redecorate a room together! You must post pictures when it is complete. Your house is already gorgeous, so anything changed will only compliment and add to it. :)

    Continuing to pray for you, my dear friends.
    Love and hugs,

    Hey Katy,
    Just checking in hoping maybe the bone pain is improving. (And that you’re having fun with the redecorating project!)
