Why couldn't I shake these things was my question I asked myself in defeat? Pain meds had run out and I only had one to last 24 hours. Again, doctors needed to approve and there was no fax to the pharmacy by closing time. Thanks to my dad, he took Matthew and his cousin out to the garden with him this afternoon and I got a reprieve and an afternoon nap. MUCH appreciated!
While I was napping the text came that my prescription was ready to pick up and away I went! Then, not long after I got back home, David came arrived. Not just from work, but from Des Moines where he had been for two days in a training. He was happy to take over and give me time for the pain meds to kick in. He finished up supper and served it up to everyone. It wasn't so much that the pain was gone when the medication kicked in, but I could concentrate better, I could tolerate more and I could enjoy a game of Monopoly with my kids.
Ugh...I have to admit, I am still a mess but God is still good, and I will get through this!
