Thank You

Thank you to all of you who prayed for me during my sudden bout with a ruptured appendix: I am very grateful. I know the prayers helped. Having been relatively healthy my entire life long, this is the first time I was admitted to the hospital since I was born. And although the doctors and nurses were very good to me and did their best to make me comfortable, I couldn't help feeling as though I were shut up in a gloomy tower, unable to escape due to "bad numbers" (ie: heart rate, temperature, and so on). But on Monday morning, just as I despaired of ever leaving, my numbers took a turn for the better, and I was set free, and my prince came to take me home. :) I have been so happy to be reunited with a tired husband and children that I have just spent the past few days watching my children squabble and thinking, "I am just so happy to see them!" It is probably a consequence of my condition and the pain medication that I haven't felt like doing much more. But I hope to get back to posting soon. In the meantime, I continue to embrace my weakness.

I hope you enjoy this picture from my "Snow White Friend's" house. And again, thank you for your prayers.

I haven't made it over to this beautiful spot on the internet in quite a while, so when I saw a comment on another blog about you being in the hospital I rushed right over to see what was going on. I am so sorry to hear about your hospitalization, and can SO relate to what you've been experiencing! I ended up with a seriously ruptured appendix just a few days after my youngest was born in fall of '06, and wasn't able to come home until 5 days later. I bet you missed your little Polly desperately too! Anyway, I'm glad to hear that you're home and doing well. Just keep in mind that total recovery can take up to a YEAR. In fact, I STILL experience some painful twinges at my incision site. Ugh!

Regina, Prayers for your speedy recovery! Take care of yourself, and don't push it to come back too quickly. Trust in God and your family's support. Jim
