Thankful Thursday

What a day!! I'm home, lying on the couch after surgery, and finding many many things to be thankful for.

1. A GOOD surgery!
2. I had the sweetest nurses who were gentle and caring. It was just what I needed.
3. Very tolerable pain. In fact, God has been so good. I haven't had to use the stronger pain meds yet- and i'm praying I won't have to! For now, Tylenol and Aleve have been enough.
4. I felt so loved with a delivery of flowers and balloon from my church family. What a blessing that was. Then, another family from church brought by ice cream and a card. So sweet.
5. And, today, I can justify my thankfulness for ice cream. My parents have promised a milkshake from DQ tonight. yaaay. My diet is pretty limited right now to foods that I can just swallow.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful week!

Love,
Molly

Hi Molly:

Glad to hear it went okay. I said a prayer for you this morning. It is certainly not any fun, but it is nice to hear you have friends and family looking out for you.

We love you!

I am glad everything went well, I will be praying for a quick recvory for you! I think it is so awesome that you can think of things to be thankful for in the middle of a painful experience. We should all take your example and use this positive attitude during our trials! Remember to always find something to be thankful for no matter what you are going through! Thanks!

I'm glad your surgery went well! I saw your post on Abby's (Riggs) site. Both our children are from EN. That's wonderful you are able to go and help. I look forward to the day when I can go back.
