Just Droppin In......

Hello! I just wanted to drop in long enough to say a personal 'thank you' to each of you who have prayed for me during this time. Your love, support and prayers continue to life me up and help to restore my strength.

I am extremely tired and weak and understandably very sore. I can already tell a difference and the stimulator is only at it's very lowest settings. It will take a few months of adjustments to get it to it's optimal performance for my bodies' needs. The nausea is still present, but much decreased and, Praise the Lord, no vomiting AT ALL since surgery!!!! WooHoooooooo!!! Such a great relief!

I will continue to be at my sister's for the remainder of this week and possibly next. My doctor has instructed me not to lift anything over 5 lbs. for at least the first two weeks. So, we'll see how it goes!

I'm not visiting and reading for the time being; just concentrating on healing and feeling better. I go back for the post op visit in three weeks and will get the results from the liver biopsy and some other tests he did while I was in surgery. Please continue to pray that everything will be good and that I can return to better health. I don't want to be sickly and a burden to my family. However, I have placed all of those fears and anxiety with Lord and I refuse to take them back now! GOD IS IN CONTROL!!!

I pray each of you are having a wonderful week. God bless you all!

If I could be there, we would just sit and visit or read together! I'm glad that you have your sister to help you out during this time. As for burdening others, I am sure that with as much as you do for everyone else, they love the chance to be a blessing to YOU!

Rest and be healed. I'm sure your sister considers it her honor to care for you, but I understand how you feel. For now, enjoy her company and get well!

Trish said...

I'm with Connie...it would be lovely to sit and visit with you!!! Praying, that every test result, is good and that you will mend quickly and soon be back in your own precious home!!!
~BIG hugs~

Praise the Lord Diane! I'm so glad to hear that you are feeling a little better and are on the road to a full recovery!

I'm sure your sister loves having you there to help you in your time of need. I'm sure you would do the same for her. My grand mother took care of most of her family when they had cancer. She took care of her parents, 2 sisters, husband, mother and father in law, and just recently at the age of 87 she took care of her 81 yr old brother. She was sooo proud to do it. He was at their house for 3 months with kidney stones and had to have an operation. One of the stones was the size of a baseball! Ouch!!! Her reward will be in heaven!

Hugs and continued prayers for a full recovery!

So happy you are doing better. I hope you continue to recover quickly!

Make sure you have someone to do your grocery shopping -- that's a lot of lifting. If I weren't on the other side of the map, I would do it for you.

Keep hanging in there.

Just to see you here today is a gift- praying for you and no, you must not lift beyond the doctor's limit- which was word given to him from God- we sometimes forget that we ask for wisdom for the doctors and then we forget the giver of the wisdom---gentle hugs
