And I'm relieved.
Ready to be done with the pain.
So excited to get back to normal living (Lord willing).
Happy to have the surgery over with.
I realize that some people struggle with pain and health issues for years, so I know that I am so blessed to have this diagnosed and removed within a 9-month period.
I give praise to Jesus for being so faithful through it all.
I have learned: He cares deeply about His children; He wants to walk through life with me; I need to cry out to Him first; and every occurrence in life can be used to bring Him glory.
Surgery recovery is not exactly a fun process. The narcotic I am taking to manage the pain causes the following: terrible headaches, dry mouth, sometimes makes me loopy, tiredness, and hallucinating dreams....which means very little sleep at night (for me and for Bryce). I spent the first 4 days just shuffling around. I still can't move my left arm very well. It's going to be a long road. I'm tired of reading (finished 3 books already) and watching HGTV shows on Hulu and catching up on sleep during the day. You know me: I want to be busy and productive and active. I guess God might have something to teach me during this recovery process, too.
Thanks for the prayers and encouragement and meals and visits and books.
Taking one step at a time (literally).
