Today I came across a verse in the Bible that I have read before, I remember posting something about it on Facebook, a couple years ago. So I went back through my timeline and found what I had wrote and was very encouraged. Most mornings (not all, sometimes when we have early doctors appointments I don't get up early enough to do this), I read the daily devotion in the Jesus Calling book, and then read the corresponding verses at the bottom that are tied to the devotion. I write down in my journal, verses or part of the devotional that I find interest, encouraging or I have questions about.
Wow time has gone by so fast, yet again I write, "I can't believe it's been so long since I wrote." I have a goal this fall to be a lot better with blogging. I would love to blog every day. My husband will be busier this fall, I will explain why later, so when he's busy doing his thing, I hope to be blogging and working on some other projects. Before I explain the exciting things my husband will be up to and the projects I hope to be working on, let me fill you in on our summer adventures.
Sometimes things get posted On Facebook and we forget to post them on the website for people who are not on Facebook. So here are a few things that have been posted on Facebook in the last couple of weeks. The first is a video from the hospital, Tuesday May 16th, explaining what had happened and where we were at that point
Jay made us stew last night. He pre-cooked some of it at our house and then brought the rest to cook in the crockpot he bought for us. It cooked all day in the hospital room. It smelled so good in here. My grandma’s stew recipe is my favorite meal so it was amazing to get to have it in the hospital. Thank you Jay!
Saturday started off with a lot of frustration and anger. The pain was manageable with medications, but still sitting between 7 and 10. It would settle down to about 7 until Angela moved. Then the pain would jump to 10. The teams were making their rounds, and Dr Spencer stopped by. She came in strictly to take care of Angela. She looked at the MRI and consulted with all the rest of the teams. She explained what they saw on the MRI.
From David: Angela had the worst pain she’s ever experienced in her stump. Two calls to the orthopedic doctor and 7 hours later, we went to the emergency room. 7 hours and 3 medications later, the pain finally started to ease just a bit. Pain went from a 10 to a 7 or 8. Her stump was swolle and felt a little warm. She had a little fever, too...
