I spent some time yesterday getting "pushed around" by my husband. LOL! (Thought you'd appreciate that, Hannah!) :) He took me to the chiropractor in my new chair. 🙂
The chiro seems to think I have "facet joint syndrome". Just click on the name to go to a site that explains it fairly well. To be honest, I was quite fearful that it would be something more serious. It certainly feels very serious! So this diagnosis, although unpredictable, is better than something that would require surgery.
I did feel some immediately relief after the adjustment. Although, after sitting for any length of time, the pain comes back with a vengeance. I keep doing a little bit more each day. "Slow and steady wins the race!" like the hare and the tortoise taught us. 😉
I'm feeling a little bit sorry for myself that I'm going to miss church again. And please don't tell my pastors, but I miss the choir the most! ;) We are already practicing for our Christmas cantata, and I love that so much! Also our choir is always learning new songs, so I miss out on those as well, and feel like I'm getting behind. I do enjoy watching them on the web site, though. It's fun to "see" your choir perform, rather than just hearing it.
I was quite pleased my how comfy my chair performed yesterday, although it did feel peculiar to be rolling around at everyone's waist level. It's funny how much difference a foot or two can make in your perspective of things. Now I know why they tell new parents to crawl around their house on hands and knees to view how their baby will see the world, so they know how to "childproof" their home more effectively. Thankfully, I was not quiiiiiite down on that level!!! lol!
Can I just say again how wonderful my husband has been through all of this? He is managing Isaac's care without a hitch. Remember he was home with him full time for a year or so, so he does really great with all of the things required to keep Isaac happy and healthy.
Of course, Isaac is older now, and we live in a different house, so some things are different. His taste in videos has changed and he loves to have his curtains opened so that he can see out; but most things remain the same: feeds, meds, clothes changes…and lots of TLC!
Doug is also caring for me extremely well. He has a real servant's heart and seems to thrive while meeting the needs of others. I do not have one complaint about his care for me these past two weeks. I have not gone without anything that I needed or wanted. He has done all the laundry, cleaning, and meals as well.
(Well, to be entirely accurate, I must say that Grammy did come over to visit the other day, and ended up dusting before she left. Moms always seem to know what little thing might just make your day a little brighter! She also sent over a few pieces of Jalapeno Cornbread last week. Yummo!!!)
I have felt so loved and cared for by my entire family (and my friends) for the past 2 weeks. I am such a blessed, blessed woman!
I pray you feel loved and blessed today. Even if you are alone, and in dire circumstances, please know that you are loved by God, and that He is right there with you. Remember too, that no matter how hard things may seem, they could be worse! So we need to count the blessing of this present difficulty. God has protected us from many other things, and we should praise Him for that.
May God bless you this day,
