2 weeks post-op update.

Recovery is going well. God’s mercy is SO real and He is showering me with grace to get through each day. Small and large victories are being had; right leg is still half asleep, but I am able to walk on my own, I am able to write and remember things here and there, change diapers, make bottles, etc. With the exception of a ER visit Sunday night due to numbness and tingling (Me totally overdoing it like a stubborn donkey) I simply can’t believe the miracle in the recovery of brain surgery. Each day is so different and each minute holds a different challenge or joy…it is good. God is good and He has shown me kindness I don’t deserve in this whole process. I know it is not this smooth for most people and I am thankful for what I have been given, my cup truly overfloweth. The love and care I have recieved from the people around me has been exemplary, godly and I just can’t help but be HAPPY for ALL God has provided and the many ways I know He cares for me! It is SO wonderful to be able to understand God’s truths and scripture in such an authentic way, it makes this whole trial worth everything we all have to sacrifice.

I went to the doc to get the stinky staples out (YAY FOR SHOWERS, Chad says double yay) and get the results from the pathology report, and well the metal came out but no results yet. Strangely enough, God has removed all anxiousness and given me His perfect peace He promises, so results will wait and in the meantime I think I have a fantastic reason to shovel cookies in the face hand over fist.  😉

Thank you for the continued prayers and encouragement, you all are lifting me up and I truly am doing well! Quite spoiled actually. My house has never been so clean and I am eating 5 star meals each night thanks to our church body and dear friends mad cooking skillz. Our wonderful church also made me a beautiful prayer quilt which means the world to me, I will always have that to help me remember how much I have been prayed for.
And lastly, an update on my little people, they are doing amazing. Such sweet loving little men who are listening and growing and loving on their mommy. So proud of how they are handling the schedules and    change in their lives. What could be so difficult has been relatively easy in terms of transition.

    Listening to Laura Story’s song “Blessings” while reading your blog and just tearing up. The Holy Spirit’s equipping and strengthening you is amazing. I am so glad you are abiding in Him and He is proving Himself so faithful, loving and caring for you JUST like a Father would. He is such a good God and I am so glad you are His child. I love you Michelle!!
