The staples are out!!! Daniel took me down and almost right away they got them out. I can’t say it was comfortable, but it was actually better than I thought it might be. The afternoon has been tough. I was glad for good diversion. Jimmy stopped with some delectable cupcakes that Emma had baked for us. Wonderful Chocolate with coconut filling. JR and Linda came with supper — ham, baked sweet potatoes, asparagus, green beans, and a beautiful bowl of mixed fresh fruit. Lemonade and sweet tea topped off a wonderful meal. Sweet fellowship and comfortable friendship made it all so special.
Daniel went to do chores, then. The pain was pretty tough, and I thought that maybe when he left to go out I would have myself a little cry, but then the doors opened and in came Jesse and Christina and Charis. That was a good diversion. My precious grandbaby gave my “owie” some gentle strokes and listened to her favorite stories. Before they left, I was able to take some pain meds, and since they are gone, did some physical therapy. Daniel went and got two big bags of ice from the hispanic market and I have had a half an hour of ice on it, so I think I will try to climb up the stairs and sleep tonight. Deborah had to go to work, and so maybe I will need to be available in the morning for some of the easier things.
Thanks so much for all the prayers and encouragement, dear friends. I am so blessed. I pray that the kindness you’ve shown me will come back to bless you!
