Hard Dance this morning

Image
Good Morning!! This morning was very difficult. I had a difficult time getting up this morning. The pain was severe. Standing was difficult; taking that first step was difficult. I was not sure I was going to stay standing. The dance with hubby through my tears continued until we reached the bottom of the stairs, then across the kitchen to my office where I could get ready for the day. My husband helped me with getting around until we felt that I was ok to be on my own.
I have to say that with this pain through my body it really makes me feel like quitting, giving up, walking away from things. I feel like I cannot continue the battle. I know the Lord gives the strength to fight these battles. He's there through my pain, through my difficulties of getting around. 
I have my follow up with the MRI on the 31st so I will find out our plan and what we need to do. 
I hope you all have a wonderful day then soon it will be weekend time. Have a great weekend spend time with family. Great maki…

Rise and Shine!!!

Good afternoon everyone! Hope you're having a great day. This morning's dance was a bit tougher as in the night I moved and experienced some sharp pain. When I woke and took my first step from the bed I almost went down. When I reached the bottom of the stairs I was finally beginning to walk alone, walking across the kitchen was a bit of a struggle, but I made it across. I found the things I needed to get my day started. I got ready then woke the family as they requested. 

I can say that many thoughts went through my mind. The pain that I was experiencing and waiting almost impatiently for my next dosage of medication; I wanted to give up. I knew I couldn't because there was going to come a day when giving up will not be an option. My dear friend and I were out on a mission to grab some extras for supper. As we were walking into the store I mentioned that my doctor mentioned "wheelchair". I told her no I am not giving in! I will not go to a chair. My friend's …

Good Morning for Dancing....

Good Morning!! Hope you have a wonderful day! What a day! Today when I rose from bed the pain was still there, but not as bad as it has been. I am so thankful for that. My husband heard my alarm; greeted me with these words, "Is it time for our morning dance?" I replied yes, it  is. We got up and started our dance. I am glad the pain wasn't as bad this morning; I am glad that I had my husband to hold as we left our room and down the hallway. He helped me to the stairs; I was able to descend a bit easier this morning.
I met our son downstairs him greeting me as I entered our living room. I love his sweet words. "Mama, I am going to get my clothes and I will be waiting for when you get out of the shower. Do you need anything?" How sweet of him. I love how he cares for the needs of others.  
This weekend was a very special one. We had a baptism in our church. Four of our teens in the church have decided to move forward in their faith taking baptism as their next ste…

Good Morning Everyone!! Hope you're having a good morning. My day yesterday started out as usual; the morning "dance" to get moving, love walking with my husband. We went to our church and were blessed that our son took a step of faith in his walk with Christ to move forward; he was baptized. So very blessed. I know he was excited. We were then blessed to celebrate with an outing to lunch to celebrate with his Grandparents. He was able to choose the restaurant that we went to.  The waitress serving us learned of the reason of our celebration and made the day even better. 
I later went to our Mom's group. The time there was nice and exactly what I needed. I left feeling very encouraged.The group was small; three of us there and I  appreciated the words from them. They did not know the events between church in the morning and lunch. I know some may say what was the point of even meeting, but I have to say that it was perfect. We each were celebrating that our children t…

Saturday Family Fun Day!

Good Morning!!! Hope everyone had a good night. My night was an eventful one; I was up and asleep again...the pain woke me...I felt a pop and that woke me. I didn't know whether to reach over to my husband and tell him I may have just done something. I decided against it; waited to see when I tried to move if I felt pain or no.  I didn't so I let myself drift off to sleep again. My husband woke at 4:30am, he got up, went to his office and did some work.  I woke to my 5:30 pill alarm took the medications then drifted off until 6:30am. I texted my husband because I noticed he wasn't back in bed....hmm, texts don't work well in reaching someone when they leave their phone on the nightstand next to the bed you're in.  I called him on the intercom; he came in and helped me up. The pain was a bit much, the leg and hip didn't want to cooperate. I didn't know if we were going to succeed in getting me up and about. I trusted him to hold me and I trusted God to get m…

Good Friday Morning Everyone!! I had to say that I am so excited this is the weekend coming up. I love the weekends because that means spending time with my loving family. I don't know what we have planned as of yet. Usually we have things planned, but with the snow days we had this week we did a few things then. This weekend our son gets baptized. I am so excited for him. I am proud of him in that he's looking forward to this next step in his faith. He, like us love our LORD. 

This morning was a little better, but still took ten minutes to get downstairs. The alarm went off as usual. I moved in the bed to get ready for my husband to come to the side of the bed; "pop" it was loud and clear. My husband heard it, said what was that? I said my foot. Which one he says? I said the right one. Is it ok? I don't know, it kind of hurts. I moved to get in position to get out of bed; tried to get up on my own - did not succeed. I fell right back to the bed. He says why did y…
