Ava isn’t attached at my hip anymore.
Healing…..it feels good.
Lena and Ava played together all day today. Which gave me the opportunity to just rest.
I’m not any worse per say….so that is positive.
But I’m still not 100% better by any means yet. I still have ear pain (which is getting very old and trying my patience!) and still have a headache and had the chills all day.
The end of the day seems to be the worst and overnight.
The lesion on my cheek is almost ready to break open and then it can crust over and I won’t be contagious anymore to those who haven’t had the chicken pox. All the other spots have already started to crust over. I’ve had the lesions on my scalp for at least a week already and didn’t know what they were….they just really hurt and I felt lousy but didn’t know why. So I’m probably about 2 weeks into this shingles business already. So hoping that I’m at the lower end of “typical” 2-6 week period that the symptoms last for.
Hopefully I will start having energy and feel better SOON.
Some lovely ladies from our home group have insisted on bringing us some meals this week. They have been there for us through many many trials and have always showed us such love through providing meals for our family when we are down and out.
And the first one arrived this evening like a truck load of food!
The boys eyes just bugged out!!! We NEVER get such goodies from pizza shop. There were cheeseburger subs, wings, pizza and even a GF sub for Mama. Thank you so much Macri family! <3
Ava did sleep in her own bed last night for the first time since her surgery. (Daddy was so happy as he got his nice comfy bed back! lol)
I put the monitor in her room to comfort her that if she needed me she just needed to call.
But she slept all night!
The swelling in her cheek has really gone done in size. She is eating more at one sitting but she still wants me to feed her.
She just is very cautious and doesn’t want to bump her lip in any way. So I kinda just drop the food into her mouth.
But honestly I don’t mind at all…..it is good for the “re-bonding” that needs to happen from what we went through together on surgery day.
I’m very thankful for a “lighter” week on my calendar. I was able to clear my schedule for the entire week and just be still and recover.
Thank you for all the love and prayers. I have felt them over the past few days! <3
