A Few Things~


First of all, I want to send huge thanks your way. You will never know all the good your comments and emails have done for me. I thoroughly and completely believe in the power of prayer, and all the prayers being said on our behalf is humbling and I am forever grateful.


The hubby was released from the hospital last night. And now I know that my work is really just beginning. It was so hard just to get him in the car...even with three people working on it. If it were just his leg, it might be doable, but with 8 broken ribs (yes, I previously said 4...that was my error...it's 4 on each side...yep, I can add...4+4=4...ahem...8) he can hardly move without excruciating pain. Then once we got him home, just getting him up the 2 steps into our house took 4 people. Heaven help me. He's supposed to go back for a chest xray on Thursday. At this rate, we'll need our own entourage. I must admit, I'm scared. So keep those prayers and positive thoughts coming! I thought I needed them before.....now I KNOW I need them.


In other, less worrisome - more fun, news...Wendy is now in the HOUZZ. I am now a contributor for Houzz.com! And I sure am excited. You can see my first ideabook here.

Maybe I should do one on Hospital Chic Decor, huh? That's the new style of my living room. Sigh.


See you all tomorrow~

God bless you, Wendy. It's so hard to have one of your family in the hospital--but then again, while they're there, the nursing staff do the bulk of the care. While it's great to have them at home, it's also really hard work!

If you don't already take a good multivitamin, may I suggest you start taking one now? And a B-vitamin supplement might be particularly useful. Your health is even more important now than it usually is, and it would be easy for you to get run down. I will pray for you to be sustained, body and soul, and for your husband to heal very quickly. God bless you all.

Baby steps....one day at a time. Every day will be a little better. Stay strong and take care of yourself. Congrats on your Houzz involvement as well.

Angela said...

Bless your hearts! He must be miserable. It really could have gone the other way, couldn't it? While he is still needing you so much it can be such a sweet time together...one of the little blessings God gives in the difficult times. Remember it when he's half-way feeling better, because he's liable to be a real pain!!

Angela said...

Oh, I forgot...the Houzz article is terrific!!

Lindsay said...

THAT is great news that the hubby gets to go home! Hang in there Wendy! :)

That is great that he is home, although it sounds like it will be a long road. Thank the Lord you have people around you to help. My thoughts have been with you since I first read the news. Hang in there. You are stronger than you know.

So glad to hear that your hubby is home! Isn't it amazing how we take the simplest things for granted ~ like getting in and out of a car??!! Really puts things into perspective during times like this, doesn't it? I'm glad there are people around you who are willing and able to help y'al out. Continued prayers and thoughts coming your way!
Hugs,
Donna

I do KNOW how you feel. In 2003 my husband suffered a massive heart attack. When they performed the cauterization they ruptured his artery. He actually died on the operating table, but by the grace of God they were able to bring him back. They performed emergency surgery to repair the rupture (massive internal bleeding), but in the process he lost 60% of his heart function. One year later he had to be opened back up for gallbladder surgery, then another year later they had to open him up yet again for open-heart surgery and performed 4 by-passes. His time of healing through each operation was long and difficult. With me working full time, and still having one of our kids in school, each day brought new challenges. One thing I DO KNOW is that God was with us every step of the way – just as He will be with you. It’s not one “day” at a time… it is literally one “moment” at a time. But you WILL get through. You are already much farther down the road than you were just a few days ago. Please know that you and your entire family are in our thoughts and prayers – that God will give you peace, comfort, and rest during this difficult time.

Many hugs and blessings…
Debbie
