I am so thankful to get to write to you again. As you know, the last few days have been pretty rough. Jeff has filled you all in with the details, so I will not bore you with them again. Let's just say that I am thankful to be on my feet again. I get stronger everyday and soon this past two weeks will be a distant memory.
The doctor has advised me to stay home from school until Friday. I know this is the best thing for me, but it is hard. Especially, when I feel pretty good. In some ways, I feel like I am playing hookie! However, I know the doctor knows best, and I do not want to compromise my recovery. I figure by the end of the week Jeff will have to tie my hands together before he goes to school to keep me from doing anything...LOL! I always have a project in the works, so when I start feeling better my mind starts racing and I want to start working again. I am going to try to refrain, or at least take it slow. = )
I wanted to try to express how grateful I am to all of you for your thoughts, prayers, and concern. I am literally overwhelmed by the outpouring of geniune concern that I felt from all of you. I read each comment and reading each one made me feel very blessed and a little bit better. So many times, we can become so mired down in our own troubles that we forget to reach out to someone in need. That is surely not the case in blogland. You have all shown me so much love and concern that all I can do is thank you from the bottom of my heart. I received so many nice emails over the course of the last few days, and I promise to answer all of them as time allows. For now, know that I have read them or Jeff has read them to me. Each one meant so much to me.
I do have to publicly thank Jeff and my entire family for the love and care they gave me during this past two weeks. Nothing I can say or do can adequately thank them for all they did. I know they would say, "That is our job!", but it sure made me feel so loved to receive their care. My mom was here at a moments notice when I needed her. She sat with me when I was in terrible pain, she made lunch and dinner for me. She and my dad visited often and they have checked in on me countless times. I am so blessed.
I cannot say enough about Jeff. There is love and then there is love. He has continued to show me unconditional love and support. He has been there to help me to the bathroom, bring me medicine, quiet my irrational fears, talk me through the pain, make sure I eat, the list goes on and on. As you all know and have said to me, I am very blessed to have Jeff in my life. I can never thank God enough for giving me such a loving and supportive person to spend my life with.
Hopefully, this will be the last post I EVER have to do about kidney stones. I am ready to get back to what I love most about my life. Spending time with Jeff and the Ps x 3, decorating, and writing for the best magazine in the world, A Primitive Place. Thank you again for all the prayers you said on my behalf. They certainly are working.
Thank you for visiting Yesterday Once More. I appreciate you stopping by and I hope you will continue to come back as often as possible. Don't forget to look for Yesterday Once More on facebook. I would love for you to stop by there too.
