The TV’s back on, I’m back on the computer, the cat is satisfied that there are no strangers in the house, so everything’s back to the status quo.
It sure was wonderful, though, for today and yesterday afternoon on, to have our younger DD home for a quiet visit. I think it did her as much good as it did me. We didn’t go anywhere, and we really didn’t do anything. We just sat on the sofa and chatted, if the spirit moved us, or just enjoyed doing nothing.
She leads such a hectic life, between work and chauffeuring three active children here and yon from one practice to another, plus her part of the housework. Being still, with nobody hollering Mama! was probably quite restful for her. And I just enjoyed being with her. For all that it came because of serious illness, I did get to spend a lot of time with our older DD this last year, and I was missing spending some time with our younger DD, too.
Nothing has changed, leg wise. My digestive system continues to behave itself, and I’m eating normally now. Of course I’m still on the high powered medicines. I’m to report my progress to the Gastroenterologist’s nurse tomorrow, and she’ll tell me what to cut back on next.
We watched a little bit of the MDA telethon today. I thank God for two healthy children, who have grown into loving women, who are good people. Both have a strong faith in Jesus, and they are both married to Christian men. All three of our grandchildren are healthy, and they are saved, too. Yes, we have much to be thankful for.
For those parents who are struggling through the anquish of seeing that precious little one be diagnosed with a serious illness, my heart cries out for you. I can’t begin to understand how you feel, but I can pray for you. May God be with you today in a close and intimate way. Amen.
