Mom is out walking with her friend Linda, so I’m updating the Blog tonight. For fun, I decided to go back and read the entry from August 16, 2006. At that time, I was still in the hospital and my goal for that day was to get to the nurses’ lounge, so I could check my email and read Katy’s Blog. On that date, I also had physical therapy. Here is my sentence from that date, ” I felt like an old woman by the time I was done”.
Amazing that just one year later, I was able to attend my afternoon doctor’s appointment alone! Mom had other errands to accomplish, so she dropped me off at my appointment. I walked into the building without assistance. I checked in and then had the joy of surprising the nurses with, according to them, “how well I looked”. The doctor was also pleased with my progress. The doctor listened attentively; we discussed different options regarding my post-surgery treatments and established a plan both of us are willing to try. I left the doctor’s office today feeling rejuvenated and hopeful, instead of like the “old woman” I was last year. And the most exciting part was that I was returning home, instead of to my hospital room. It’s been an astonishing year of ups and downs, but I thank you again for praying our family through this journey. In just one year, the Lord has answered your prayers in miraculous ways. My strength today is evidence of that.Comments:
