Needless to say, the past six weeks or so have been pretty rough on my physically, but I am so very, very thankful that the past several days have been wonderful! It is almost odd to feel "good" again, after so many health problems this summer.
I still have some medical restrictions, no lifting more than 10 pounds, getting rest, "sticky tape" where my stitches were, an occasional twinge, but nothing like before. I've been slowly adding different foods back into my meals, with pretty much success on almost all of them. I still haven't had meat other than chicken, haven't had veggies other than cooked carrots and green beans (and potatoes, are those a vegetable?), haven't tried fruit yet, but each day I'm adding at least one or two "new" things. But... food tastes good again. I don't have nausea. I get hungry...but fill up fast. I'm enjoying playing with the children (usually). Even the burping has decreased!
Our bodies are amazing things. The Psalmist was so on target when he wrote "I am wonderfully and fearfully made." It's amazing how God has created our bodies...how each and every part has a function, but how different parts can take over (sometimes) if something happens.
Thanks again to all of you who have been praying, calling, sending cards (and flowers!), bringing meals. It means more than I can say. I really feel like a new person again.
