I slept in a little this morning and then when I woke I dove right in to the Word. After reading for about an hour I prayed and then put Chris Tomlin "See the Morning" CD on my laptop while I showered. I drank my cup of detox tea and had a cup of coffee with a shot of espresso and then headed to the hospital.
Mandi made real good progress today. She was awake most of the day and sitting up. She even walked from the bed to a chair and back again. She is experiencing nausea from the pain med's but until she no longer needs them that is what she will have to deal with. She told Dr. B today that this surgery is the best one yet, less painful then the other two. Praise God, I know in my heart that is because of all the prayers that are continually being offered up for her. Thank you all so much for praying with us.
Before I left this evening she even had me call home so she could talk to the children. She was able to speak with Shelbi but Tristen was still at basketball practice. I had to leave before he got home.
I got back to the lodge and had my one meal for the day and then came to my room. I am beat tonight for some reason. I will read a little more in the Word and pray then retire early. Sweet... sweet sleep.
