After just a few days on Prednisone, the inflamation and pain in my hands has subsided and my energy level is teasing me! I experience moments of great inspiration whereby I can think through the list of things I want to get done....just before I lay down to rest before I start! Today, I start the new Arthritis medication which is suppose to continue the process of restoration. If all continues well, maybe I'll be able to once again put my wedding rings on!
Still, perspective is so important. And prayer is essential! Heather has posted the results of her brain surgery; and while she is having a miraculous recovery from the surgery itself--we still have some warrioring to do on her behalf. The tumor has been identified. While we rejoice that Heather is "still standing" let's not forget to remain on our knees in prayer for total and complete recovery!
My mother is still recovering from her second eye surgery to repair a retina detachment. Last week was a difficult week for her, it is tough not being able to see and being housebound with little to do. The gas bubble is disapating and within days, her vision should be better. Then, after a few weeks of recovery, she will have the cataracts removed from her eyes, one eye at a time. 2007 will be the year of eye surgeries for her...this is her 2nd of 4 eye surgeries so far this year.
After a beautiful weekend of wind and rain, it is beginning to look a little more like summer. 9th grade son is counting down the days until summer vacation and I can't wait for the best time of the year! It seems that the longer I live--the shorter summers really are! After enduring the hardships of winter, our plans for summer are so jam-packed, the long days of summer seem to fly by with the warm lake breeze of our 10,000 lakes!
How do you suppose the White House chose only 134 guests for the white- tie event tonight for the Queen of England? I have checked my mail, yet again, didn't find my invite? Did you get yours? Hmmmm......
Guess I better take some meat out of the freezer for dinner here!
