Days in the hospital are L-O-N-G. The day started out behind the curve when morning light revealed that I looked like I felt: like I'd been run over by a big truck. See, there's this funny thing about getting your whole body cut apart and re-pieced back together--the body has to teach itself how to work again. The way that God created our bodies is an amazing thing. According to Dr. F, my body will bounce back from 3 invasive tumors and a resectioned (again) colon to become just as functional as it was before. It simply takes time.
So while I'm waiting, I want you to know that I appreciate you. Thank you for taking time to check up on me. Thank you for the care that you've shown to me and my family, and for faithfully praying. I need a clear head to try to truly communicate my heart to you...that will come later, when all of the parts are in working order again! For now, know that the encouragement you've shown me force me to look ahead and your prayers spur my own faith. Thank you.
