The past couple of days have been the best I have had in a while! I have added mac & cheese to my diet. If you are not crazy about mac and cheese you should go without food for a couple of months. Man it was good. I seem to be getting better and better as time goes on. It is obviously going slower than I would like but it’s going.
It is amazing to me how quickly the last few months have gone. Sometimes when I was sick and in the hospital time would crawl. I would lose track of the days and even the month. The first week of October I was in the hospital and thought it was the first week of September. Anyway the time I was sick I was pretty miserable but God has been gracious and I came through it. I am not completely without issue now but I am so much better than I was. The nausea that I am dealing with now is bearable and I thank God for bringing me through the worst of it. In hind sight it doesn’t seem like I was sick that long.
Regina has done a fantastic job keeping up the blog. When I was sick I just couldn’t do it. I am a little intimidated now trying to follow her. I am not as gifted writing as she is and I am not so much a detail person like her but I will do my best. Speaking of Regina I don’t know how many of you have noticed but she is pretty awesome. I spent a total of 5 weeks in the hospital and the only time she was not right there with me my mother was. I am pretty sure that being mothered by such a wonderful woman growing up had a lot to do with me setting the bar so high for a wife. Anyway I am proud to have them both in my life!
I go back to the doctor next Tuesday. My hope is that I will be well enough to lobby for ending the TPN. I cannot get rid of the PIC line they have in me until I quit the TPN and I cannot go back to work with the PIC line. Hopefully after next Tuesday I will have a better idea of the future. I know I have to have some scans and they may want them before they remove the PIC line just in case they need to do something else. My hope is that I am near getting back to normal. I am eager to get back to work and choir and the ball park and all the other things I love about my life.
The encouragement I have received since this all began has been phenomenal! You all know who you are but I have continually gotten cards, donations, phone calls and have had hundreds of people praying. I feel as though I am indebted to everyone I know. I am not sure why so many people have been so kind but I do recognize how fortunate I am. It has really changed my outlook on life and people in general. People in some cases that I barely know have sent money and cards. It is extremely humbling that so many have done so much.
Well I just reviewed my post and I was right. I didn’t do as well as Regina! Maybe it at least gives you an idea of where we are.
