Feeling Better

Thank you all for your prayers. I cannot believe how much better I am feeling! I am still resting! I am still sitting on the couch all day. But, I feel stronger! I can stand up without dizziness, and the un-ending headache has gone! I even got dressed in real clothes this morning (rather than wearing pajamas all day).

Thank you all for praying! Y-day was a l-o-n-g day with Paul away driving a UPS package car. But, God gave me strength to get through. Yes, the house was an absolute wreck when Paul came home, but I was able to keep the kids fed and happy. (Thank God for leftovers!)

On a completely unrelated note: my non-maternity clothes are fitting so loosely on me that my skirts are literally falling down! I knew I had lost a lot of weight, but I didn't know I had slimmed down that much. Looks like I will be using my personal Christmas money/giftcards to buy some smaller clothes. Yippie! (Don't worry, I will wait till I am well to go shopping. And, I will wait till my tummy has shrunk down to whatever size it will be.)

Wonderful news your feeling stronger, we'll continue to pray for you to regain your strength and recover. How much fun to go shopping soon for some new clothes. It's always nice to get some new items.

So glad you are feeling better. I have prayed for you and for your family.

Please STILL take it very easy. Think about what you would tell a woman who had just had a baby and then DO those things. I know it is hard, but just think of it as your only job right now. To rest, nourish the baby, and love on your other kiddos. That is the best thing you can do for your family and for you. Has your church bought you any meals? I know you are new there, but I'm sure there are women who would love to help.

It is a given that messy houses come with new born babies ;o)
Sure wish we lived closer, cause I would pop over and help out, as I am sure all the other readers on here would.
