The Road to Recovery

Hello my dear friends!! I just want to thank you all for your love this past week! Your emails and Facebook comments along with checking on me here at my blog have meant soo very much to me ♥ ♥ ♥

The doctor shared with my Husband and Mom that during surgery it was confirmed this shoulder was definitely worse than my previous shoulder and that the shoulder was completely dislocated from the socket so this will add on to the recovery time....boo hiss!
And so the recovery begins....

God has surrounded me with the most loving, nurturing family and I am sooo thankful and Praise HIM! My Husband has done more than words could even say! I love you Brian with all I am and KNOW you are such a gift from GOD!! My precious children have nursed me, loved me ....oh mY! My Mom has been UH MA ZING as usual! Rylee and Krista even showed up one night to surprise me and give me sweet kisses and hugs that will make a Grandma forget about any surgery whatsoever ;0) He has also given me the most WONDERFUL friends who have come and sat with me, cooked for me, watched movies with me, brought me cookies :) It is truly overwhelming and I see God in each and everyone of you! Thank you ALL for shining brightly for Jesus and being like HIM!

I am taking one day at a time and after having one particularly hard day on Friday because I got behind the pain but once I caught up with it about 11 pm that night I have been religiously taking my pain meds even in the middle of the night and doing my chair therapy 3 times a day for an hour each time. Being awake in the middle of the night even though it is because of pain has given me that much more time with the Lord and I have been so thankful for this!!! I have taken advantage of this down time to get alot of my review books read and am also thankful for this because I have ALOT of books to review in November!!

So thank you all again....I can't wait to catch up with all of you! Bare with me as I can't sit a real long time yet at the computer but will get around and visit soon! Oh how I have missed you all! Have a blessed week my bloggy friends! I Love you all sooo!

Dear Loren, Ouch I hurt just thinking about your shoulder. So thankful that the Lord has been with you every step of the way. What a blessing to have such wonderful family and friends to care for you-but I know you'd do the same for them. Take it slow and stay on top of your meds. Thank you for visiting me-you always bless me.
Gentle hugs today.

Good Morning Loren Sweetie...
I am so thrilled to see you post a few lines. I just wanted to know that you were okay and that everything went fine. We knew it was going to be bad, so I know that didn't surprise you. Remember one day at a time, God only gives us the strength for today, and tomorrow is another whole new day. The strength for one day at a time.

I continue to pray for you sweet friend, and just know that you are so loved. Have a beautiful day today sweetie, and enjoy the pampering. I think a girl deserves it, every so often.

Many gentle hugs and much love, Sherry

Stopped back by to see how you're doing since the surgery...I'm praying for you as you go through this time of recovery. Rest in Him and may His Hand of Healing wrap totally around your shoulder and all areas needed...
