A Bit Better Everyday

Today has been a better day. My pain from the surgery has lessened drastically. It still hurts to sit up completely straight, but I am able to bend over and squat with a lot less discomfort. Our biggest concern right now is that we are all sick. Yes, Beef, Scamp, and I plus my extended family!!

Sore throats, hacking coughs, and sweaty fevers have prevailed this week. Sometimes my ribs are more sore than my stitches from coughing. Scamp had a fever all yesterday and it has come down somewhat today. My mom has been diagnosed with every kind of 'itis you can think of -- laryngitis, bronchitis, etc. You name it! She's at work right now instead of resting, so please pray she gets better soon as well. Sickness hasn't hit Beef hard...yet. He's had a bit of a sore throat, too. Hopefully, it won't get any worse for him.

I can't wait until things get back to normal. Big changes seem to affect me emotionally, and I'm needing some normalcy. Scamp and I usually get out of the house a few times a week, but I haven't driven by myself yet. And I'm not sure I can pick her up yet. The doctor should let me know tomorrow. The appointment will be my first driving excursion since the surgery. Thank goodness my friend Judith is going with me.

I'm so glad that things are getting a bit better every day, except for all of those sick germs that are everywhere. Hope you guys get to feeling a lot better very soon, and that the dr visit goes well too. Enjoy the outing :)

Take care!

I hope things went well at the doc and I hope you get back to normal! We will be praying that all of you get better soon and that this sickness will leave you alone for awhile! Hang in there!
