It's two weeks since surgery. I feel a little better each day. I do get extremely exhausted which
is frustrating but I'm happy to be able to accomplish something small each day.
I still have to use the walker but I can tell it won't be much longer.
We got the tree decorated yesterday. Chuck helped decorate for the first time. He made it look really pretty too. When we used to get a real tree, he would bring it in and set it up and then we (me, Corey, Jesse) would decorate it. He would do outside stuff. This time Corey was working, Jesse was at home and I needed help to get it done. It's pretty! He did a great job!

Reading a book my mom gave me: Response Able

How do you live your life? based on passion or principles?

good principles:
Invest more in others than you spend on yourself.

Live everyday as if there is instant replay and your every move
is going to be reviewed.

Be grateful for everything. Even the hard days have value.

Health news: able to put some weight on my leg. Still have to use the
walker and pain meds but I can tell it's healing - I think - quickly and well.
Still get tired fast and easily but that's supposed to be normal too.

Yesterday reading: Jesus Calling
As you look at the day before you, you see a twisted, complicated path, with branches going off in all directions. You wonder how you can possible find your way through that maze. Then you remember the One who is with you always, holding you by your right hand. You recall My promise to guide you with My counsel, and you begin to relax.

This is very true and sometimes hard to keep in view but it needs to be, and I am grateful!

I had my surgery Friday - that was the rod in the leg going from the top of the leg to the knee and
the bolt at the hip to hold it in place. The Dr. said everything went well. I stayed over night Friday and left
the hospital Saturday around 2 after they went over the exercises I need to do. I knew it would hurt
but didn't expect quite this much. The pain medication helps though - which I'm really thankful for.
Now it's just a matter of time to walk normal again. I think it will be slow but that's ok. I can tell it's
getting a little better each day.
I just want to thank everyone who's been praying and keeping in touch. It means more than you can know!
Thanks everybody and I pray God will bless and be with you all.
Love you all,

Reading for today from Jesus calling:
Learn to appreciate difficult days. Get stimulated by the challenges you encounter along your way. As you journey through rough terrain with Me (Jesus), gain confidence from your knowledge that together we can handle anything. This knowledge is comprised of three parts: your relationship with Me, promises in the Bible, and past experiences of coping successfully during hard times.
Look back on your life, and see how I have helped you through difficult days. If you are tempted to think, "Yes, but that was then and this is now," remember who I AM! Although you and your circumstances may change dramatically, I remain the same throughout time and eternity. This is the basis of your confidence. In My Presence you live and move and have your being.

I should have put the Strides for breast cancer photos on here instead of my other blog so here's the link:

I'll have a bionic leg at the end of the week! Pray it goes well please!
