My Health Journey

Day 7

Good morning from the therapy hospital! I was moved yesterday around 3pm. YAY!

It’s been interesting so far. I’m still in a lot of pain so I didn’t sleep much. I’m not a fan of medications in general so I haven’t taken much for the pain but I might need to change that because I’m exhausted from not sleeping.

Last night, though, in the quiet stillness of trying to sleep, I was able to feel a few muscles just barely trying to engage in my right leg. One of them engaged enough to lift my foot a millimeter or two. It’s not much, but it’s a start! I couldn’t repeat that performance this morning, but I’ll take it one step at a time.

I wanted to share this little snippet if my life with you today though. One of the highlights of my days has been when the housekeeping lady comes in. She is always smiling and always tells me that I look beautiful. Despite that I’m usually unshowered and disheveled. 😉 I’ll miss seeing her every day!

Two thoughts from her for your day today: 1. If you’re smiling and have God’s peace, it makes you beautiful and those around you will be drawn to it! 2. You never know what kind of impact you’re having on those around you, and you don’t need a fancy position to have that impact – you can be the housekeeper!

Please pray today that rehab will work with me to get me out of here by Caleb’s Bar Mitzvah. This mama is determined to be there! And as you have been, pray that my pelvic floor wakes up and, of course, my right leg. 😁
