So sorry I haven't posted in a couple of days. Getting home and settled in as proven to be a real feat.
I am 6 days post-operative and still running a low grade fever and have excessive swelling in my knee, ankle, and foot. The blisters on my knee are just disgusting. I thought about posting a pic of this knee of mine, but decided against. It looks really gross. Now if it helps to get a visual, just leave me a comment to e-mail it to you and I certainly will, but I think for the most part, none of y'all want to see that. It.is.gross.
I must just tell you, that God is so working in this situation, you see He knew what it would be and what we would need before we did. He is just cool like that. Even though we are having a difficult time right now, I know that God is good and He is for me and not against me. It is a beautiful thing!!! He knows the plans He has for me and my family, plans to prosper and not to harm, plans to give us hope and a future. He is SO great!!
I haven't downloaded the pics from Dak's last regulation CC Meet (Districts on Saturday), but G went and took such beautiful pics.
Dak called me right after the Meet and told me he ran it for me. This is the first Meet this year that Dak has metaled in, and he said he ran hard and thought of me, and when he hit the home stretch he said: "This is for you mom!!!!!" My heart is SO full!! When he came in last night from the Meet, with the only medal he has earned this year, he laid in on my night stand and said, "This is for you mom!!!" and gave me his medal.
He earned several medals last year, but this year our school has gone from a 1A to a 2A in CC, so we have had different kids from bigger schools we have competed against in our District now. It just melts my heart that this child was going to medal for his mama last night.
In-home PT started yesterday, and I will be having it 3-days a week for 2 weeks and then we'll start out-patient PT. My PT'ist yesterday Connie, said that she had never seen adema blisters quite like these. They are so icky. She thinks there is a possibility that someone got some latex on my skin, but it doesn't really look like it. It is isn't uniform in nature, just gross in nature =)
When Sir Cuteness got up this morning, he came over to where I was sitting and started rubbing my shin and ankle. It was SO sweet!!!
We would still appreciate your prayers. Please pray for this fever to dissipate, and these blisters will not get infected when they pop, or infect anything else. Please continue to pray that my body will still be able to process the pain and nausea medicine properly.
Thank you so much for you sweet comments and e-mails.
It means so much.....
Love you so,
