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 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.

Lin, it's good to read a post from you that says that you are feeling a little more normal again!! I'll keep praying that things will continue to improve for you!! (Glad the burping stopped. Now maybe someone else can win.) BTW, that happened to me after my c-section w/#2. I wonder if it has something to do w/all the shifting around of our insides and getting air in there or something. It was quite embarrassing, to be honest, because it would come w/no warning whatsoever ... from both ends.
