You have probably noticed that the posts are getting less frequent. There is a lot more to do, now that we are home!
Overall, it has been a good week. We like the therapists, which was a big concern of mine. They all seem to be on top of things. We wish Mike was not scheduled three days in a row, but that’s what was available. At least we were able to get speech first each day, which is what we wanted.
We had a fun day with the kids today. Mike needed blood drawn and I needed a haircut, so we all went in and went out for lunch. Pizza Hut buffet is a favorite of everyone!
Did you know that your hair can get stressed out? I knew that my hair was not in good shape as it was not curling well. It has been kind of stiff. The lady that does my hair said that my hair was like that of someone who had been swimming all summer or treating it with a lot of chemicals. I am still a natural blond! So, my hair is much shorter than I wanted, and will hopefully come back more healthy.

It’s not that I didn’t care before, but I had not had the extreme sense of losing control, emotional ups and downs, helplessness, … Hopefully this increase in compassion in me will lead to encouragement for others. I’m terrible at remembering where verses are, but there is a Bible verse that says one of the purposes of our trials is to be able to comfort others as we were comforted. I have spent a lot of time really thinking about those things that comforted me, and that’s what I plan to do for others.
