Larry came back to bed...


Yes, he's back where he belongs. I thought Larry would be in the recliner chair a few more days at least. They recommended before that he sleep there so as to not roll over on his arm accidently. Also, it's hard for him to get up and down from a chair, the sofa, and especially a bed. So I thought, "I'll be by myself a while longer..." But no...he's back tonight although he can only sleep on his back. He just couldn't take being away from me anymore, I guess. :-) Three nights of separation is enough. Teeby has come home.

Larry's nurse and therapist were here today. They said he's doing amazing! His incision and stitches are awesome. He is doing a lot of therapy on his arm - even going the extra mile beyond what they asked for. He's determined to have a perfect recovery. He's still on meds every four hours but tonight for the first time he'll just have a bottled water by the bed and I'll wake up and open it up for him, let him sit up and take the pills and go back to sleep. I think he'll be on meds at least another 2 days.

Today we cancelled our VT meeting we had scheduled for church due to Larry's recovery. When I came home from church we just had leftovers and then later in the evening I put Jordan in charge of dinner. He does steaks really well on the grill. I mean he is uncommonly good with them, to the degree that I sit there and moan while I'm eating every bite. That boy can make an absolutely perfect steak. So he made dinner and it was wonderful and then we just spent the day relaxing which was so nice. Larry is still needing our help to do stuff but not quite as much and is getting more mobile now so I actually got some rest.

Five things that make me the really happy right now:

1) My house is still clean.

2) I am sensing in my spirit that something internally great is going to happen on the Africa trip. Yes, I'm going to bless the people, to serve them. But I'm feeling as if a major shift is going to happen inside me. Can't wait.

3) I really love teaching Sunday School.

4) Something good happened for Susan this week that we've been praying about. I won't blog it here, it's her personal biz, but I'm happy for her. I love praying things into existence for others!

5) I'm seeing Ada Wednesday!!!!!!!!!!

Bonus: Larry is sleeping with me tonight!
