Good Morning my friends! I am so very glad you are here. I need an idea. I need YOUR help. Would you PLEASE share with me a finishing idea for Friends Are Like Angels? This is the most important part. It is why I need help. IT IS FOR A NON-STITCHING FRIEND. This is for my very long time friend Heather.
I won this sweet, little LizzieKate pattern from Sally. If you also would like to stitch it, keep watching this space. I will be having a giveaway for this pattern when I am done with it, just as Sally requested.
So, how am I doing you may wonder? Well, I can tell you right now that I could feel all of your positive thoughts and prayers Tuesday morning. The procedure went extremely smooth. I almost fell asleep during it. No pain! The doctor did not mention that the pain would be very increased for several days. He likes to hold back information on what to expect with pain. He is all about psychology. He doesn't want me to think it could be bad, because then I will expect bad things. Well after the procedure the nurse told me that my nerves will be "all crazy" for several days and to expect heightened pain. Also that my pain would be at it's usual level for 4 to 6 weeks before the pain dies down or disappears completely. My jaw almost hit the floor!! SAY WHAT NOW?!?
Um, yes, I would say for the first 24 hrs. the pain was severely increased. It has been decreasing ever since. I have been relying on narcotics and ice packs. I am hoping my "usual" pain subsides quicker than 4 weeks. I am also hoping this is all worth it. Thank you for your well wishes, thoughts and your prayers.
I finished reading Joni & Ken: An Untold Love Story. This is a book about Joni and Ken Earekson Tada. Are you familiar with Joni? She is a Christian quadriplegic. This book was a gift from Shirlee. I really, really liked this book. The book discusses her pain and suffering. I found it helpful and encouraging.
Please remember to leave me a comment with your ideas! Have a great day in the Lord my friends!
Stitching and praying,
