i am waking up too early lately. at the hospital it ranged from 1 - 3 am. here at home it has been close to 3 am and i tend to go downstairs to the couch by 5 am so as to not disturb dave's sleep. i toss and turn to get somewhat comfortable once awake. my left hip bothers me. please pray for a good nights sleep. i watched the patriots play football late last night staying up till 10:30 which is very late for me. so glad tom brady had a win last night over the new york giants.
my mom, aka soccer gram, soon to be basketball gram as carter & cole will be playing this winter. stuart so desires to be old enough to play a sport. when asking him what he is thankful for at bedtime he mentions, basketball, football, and soccer. what's this mom to do? just love on this sports fanatic which is being done. i forsee that he will excel in his 3 y.o. evening gratefulness, as he has great hand eye coordination. just ask any non-family member who knows him well they will agree.
brain surgery FUN FACT: ( to make you look smarter in the new year): 2nd time around with surgery, staples are not used just stitches as the staples tend to loosen & come out easier - don't want that! i did have the stitches removed last saturday in the rehab hospital - 10 days post op- . it did not feel good as i had hair growing back from where it was shaved for surgery. so thankful for hair regrowth. knowing radiation (hair loss) is not an option this time around. the chemo (temodar) that is proposed does not cause hair loss.
thanks for praying over my emotional health. today was a good day. we were able to go to church. i did have my hair done along with makeup. major accomplishment. dave is learning the art of my hair with headbands. careful not to disturb the incison site. quite tricky as loose hair needs to be tucked in. carter (9.5) helped me put on my earrings this morning. he did great!
cole (7.5) is mister helper. he loves to buckle me in my car seat and be the shoulder for me to hold on to while walking once in public. he is such a patient gentleman.
stuart (3) likes to find me in my bed and "hide" under the covers. we make a tent. he thinks someone will be coming in to find us. it is so cute as it brings me such joy in our hiding excursion. he also gives his special kisses when i am on the couch in the living room he loves to touch people as he is very tacktile. he is known to touch others at dinner especially their arms & faces. we try to make sure no food is on his fingers.it is good for the boys to experience this time in our family life. many thanks to all who post scripture, i love reading it.
