Home Again

It has been a whirlwind of days even though the days have felt like forever.

I came home on Sunday in the early afternoon, so today is my second full day at home. It is going well, and I am recovering. Pain is lessening. Incisions are healing. Appetite is slowly returning.

The days are long and lonely. The kids are gone, so the house is quiet. This is so I will recoup faster, but sometimes I wonder if the chatter and noise of my dear ones won’t help me heal more.

I am lonely for them. I long to be driving them to VBS and watching them run to their friends and laugh and play.

I am tired of reading and watching movies and sleeping.

I am doing what I must do to be better. I am told it will be 2 months until I return to normal routine and at least 3 months until full recovery.

I am struggling with wanting to be better now, so that I don’t miss the rest of the summer sitting here midst my books and journals and notecards.

All in due time… it will come… will you pray for patience for me?

  1. Ang, I’ll pray for patience for you (I know how difficult it can be to attain). And I’ll try to take some photos/video of our two precious girls having fun with each other in their crew, so you can share in some small way. Glad to hear you’re home and healing.

    Angie, I know alittlle bit about waiting. When I had my last surgery, I could not feel from waist down. It was about 3 months before I could drive again. It is hard to lay around,watching TV,reading,etc. I did nave some one come to the house in case I fell but I was way back in my bedroom. It took alot when people came in to clean also. Praying for ya girl. Hang in there. God’s timing.


  3. Would working on a photo album help? I will be glad to get you set up!!


  4. Oh, Ang! I’m with you. Sometimes recovery is the hardest and longest wait ever…. I’m so glad you are home and glad to hear that each day seems to be getting better. I am continuing to pray for strength, patience, and endurance as you tackle one day at a time. Oh, how I wish I can come by and just talk to you or hug you, but I don’t want to get you sick with my recent respiratory infection. So, do know that I’m praying for you and sending you virtual hugs everyday! LOVE YOU!
