Day 121!....still kickin'!
I am pooped....I have not pooped...I just am pooped. I had a busy day of recovering. It was such a crazy night and it wore me out. I slept lots comfortably. Aunt Nancy stayed the day and helped where she could. Miss Ann Marie (my nurse) came over to check on me and said I was 100X better than yesterday.....that's not hard to tell since I am breathing today! I even went outside for some fresh air and a visit to the Magic Clubhouse. I helped Mom and Aunt Nancy in the garden. Who would have thought after a day like yesterday, I would be out gardening today?!?!? It was like we were back to "normal"...whatever that is. God is so good. Please know that this is of no strength of my own.....it is God who is pulling me and my family through this time and He is here, right here, with us every step of the way. I know you all are telling me that I am strong and that I am a fighter....it's true, I am, but only by God's strength. I have been eating good and still trying to poop but no nasties yet...just stinky "poots" (those are farts). I am on an anitbiotic just to make sure there are no beginnings of pneumonia...they say I may have aspirated and that could have been why we aren't hearing too much air flow in my right lung.....Doc isn't sure but he said it wouldn't hurt to do it just in case....so I get bubble gun flavored goodness med...mmmmmmmmm. YAWN! Well, I am sleepy and it is about time for some grub and bubble gum so I gotta run. Keep prayin'! Thanks so much! Love you all!
"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be."
