I went to Lake Tahoe with Coleman for our 3 year anniversary this week. It was so much fun, a much needed get-away! Especially because he has been working a lot. I can’t even begin to tell you how awesome it is to be feeling more normal! I did a lot of walking, we even took a hike down a little trail to the lake (yeah, that kicked my butt and I needed a nap after it). We also went shopping in heavenly village and walked around, went to the casino’s (where we only spent about 10 minutes playing penny slot machines haha). We also ate at a wonderful Italian restaurant. It was a great trip.
At the end of the day though, I was extremely exhausted and my stomach muscles/incision hurt… all things I can totally handle for such a great trip! I will admit it was hard coming home, back to reality where I now have the hard part… working really hard to build back my strength and figure out what to do next. It’s all in God’s hands though and I really can only take it one day at a time. After throwing a pity party for myself this morning I realized how blessed I am. I could have been born in Africa with no money, home or food or in the ghetto subjected to a life of crime and hopelessness or have a very serious illness with no cure… I am so richly blessed! I have a wonderful family, opportunities and most importantly I am so blessed to have found Jesus and to have Him in my life… the source of “every good and perfect gift”.
I still appreciate your prayers. It is such a crazy journey… even still.
Please keep Kelly in your prayers. She is having a problem with her kidneys that they can’t figure out. They did blood, UA and ultrasound… now they are referring her to urologist and giving her a CT scan. Also, her dog jumped on her incision and cut it open a little… she is in quite a bit of pain from it. She just isn’t feeling good. It so upsets me because I want her to be better more than anything in the world. I love my sister! She is a fighter and a hero!
