A bit better today
Friday, February 01, 2013
I managed to drag myself out of bed and get to therapy. Realized that driving to the store last night was a BAD idea. I hadn't had pain pills all day, so it was safe to do. And son did the shopping and I stayed in the van (needed to keep it running to charge the battery-don't ask, not going there). And it was before the phone call from Mom. Anyway, seemed like a good idea at the time. Yeah, hindsight is always better.
Therapy was good. Even managed the recumbent BICYCLE! Yes, full revolutions! Oh yeah! Bent the knee to 108. 111 with help. I told him for the amount of pain involved getting the extra 3? Leave it the heck alone!!
I felt kind of guilty feeling so good about my progress and feeling good, you know? I'm still upset and sad over my cousin's death, but I'm happy for me. It's such a weird feeling.
And I've got the prayer shawl ready to ship out. I'm very pleased with the way it turned out. I'd love to be able to do them on a regular basis and send them to people, but even if I can manage the yarn cost, the postage is horrendous. I suppose if God intends me to keep making them and sending them, He will provide a way for me to do it.
For now, I am just going to continue to be grateful for what I have and trust that our needs will continue to be met.
And I am very thankful for Sparkfriends. Last night when I was so very upset over my cousin and posted my blog, two total strangers took the time to pray for me and post on my blog. It was a great comfort to me. Thank you.
