My Nursemaids and an Update

After my surgery, my sister was able to come up and help me. Hailey and Jessica put on their "nursemaid" costumes and waited on me hand and foot. It was precious. These two girls are really starting to play more together despite their age difference.
Lily got into the cupcakes! I think she even had frosting up her nose!
Jessica in her full "uniform".
And just for extra fun, Hailey woke up with a protractor stuck on her finger. Praise the Lord, Steve was actually here, or I probably would have had to take her to the doc's to get this thing off. Soap didn't work. Steve ended up getting a blade off of his recip saw and carefully cut the plastic around her finger. I still can't believe he didn't cut her finger. She was so incredibly brave, I just about had a panic attack watching. As Steve was cutting, she looked up at him and sweetly said, "Thanks for cutting this off my finger, Uncle Steve." So sweet! I think we might have a little bonding moment between the two of them.

I am still recovering. I'm kind of at a standstill with it. My stitches are healing, but the I am still having lots of pain where the spike is in my foot. I don't know if it will go away until it is taken out in several more weeks. I am able to take a shower by myself now, which is the highlight of my day. I am also able to get on the computer a bit more and putt around in my walker a smidge.

Please pray for Steve. He is under incredible stress right now with holding down his job and mine. I am praying that He will turn to the Lord and ask Him for His strength. I ask that you would pray that and anything else God lays on your heart. It has been hard on everyone.

I don't know how I would have gotten through this without an incredible support system. You know who you are and I thank from the bottom of my heart.

Hope you all have a Happy New Year!

Stacie, I happy to hear you are feeling some better. I will definitely pray for your husband. It is so hard on them when Mama gets laid up. I know! I was stuck in bed for about 3 months with a bulging disk about a year and a half ago. It was so hard, but by the grace of God we got through it.

Oh, I've heard this is one of the most painful foot surgeries you can have. I can only imagine what you've been going through. I know from experience how hard it is to be unable to do things and to have the extra load put on your husband. Praying for all of you. May the Lord bless your husband with wisdom and great patience and much tenderness. I know this is trying for everyone..sending many prayers and hugs!
