I’m finishing week five and starting week six! Week six is the final actual surgery recovery!
For the very first time, I’m typing this on my own! Now I don’t know what will be mispelled and I’m sure my vocabulary will be … a little different. But I have just more to praise God for!
Here are the great improvements …
I am typing this myself! Hallelujah!!
I went to church on Sunday (Nov 11)! I was very, very blown away about God’s gift to me! So very grateful to be with my church family! As happy as I was on Sunday, there were many people that I saw but the names were not in my mind and there were some that I saw and did not recognize. I’m told by the medical team that this is normal and will continue to improve. It’ll be me and Joe’s amazing “Remembery” getting this finished.
Sunday evening I was able to go to a friend’s birthday celebration. Now I have to be honest, I went in the last hour when most were gone so that I wouldn’t have to interact with many besides her – LOL! Sitting and talking to less people was necessary. I couldn’t dance. I am grateful to my son, Joseph, for ensuring that I got to go because she is a friend of his too.
I’m understanding the things that I read. I do sometimes have to read things twice, but I’m grateful!
I’ve made a salad (it was really my own slaw) and I’ve baked some banana bread. The banana bread wasn’t my recipe but I’m so happy I did it – and I’ll remember my recipe as I keep baking!
I got my laundry done. I was able to easily sort it, wash it, dry it and fold it. I did put it away as well.
Keep praying for me!
- The part of the scar that’s nearer to my face still throbs. I’m told that this should end soon. They went into my brain cutting what looks like a large question mark – the top is on my face and the bottom is on the top front of my ear. I think you can see it on the picture, but my hair is growing back fast!
- I’m not yet comfortable talking on the phone. Somehow it is very difficult for me to fully understand everything.
- A huge difference is that I am crying quite heavily when I think of anything AND that I am quite directly honest with people even if it hurts them. I am hearing that this is not exactly like my previous personality.
A wonderful thing I am expecting is to cook with my mom for Thanksgiving. She has already told me that she’s 91 and won’t find it weird if I can’t remember something. LOL! She says my remembering and testing will be more like her. I love that lady who’s not quite old.
Y’all I do not have enough words to tell my amazing God how grateful I am!! He has been amazingly awesome!
Father God, the awesome things that you have done are many!!! Your thoughts towards me are amazing and I know that many cannot can even understand that it is You! I know that many can’t believe that You would do all that you have done for your child! Lord, I speak of all that you do for me every chance that I get but I’m too small to tell it all! If I had 10,000 tongues I’d praise you with every single one. What you do is too much for me to say because I’m just not big enough. I’m grateful, my God, to know that my love for you has allowed you to deliver me. I’m grateful because I know that as I acknowledge you as my God and my Father, you will protect me. I will always and every day call upon you knowing that you will answer me, you will be with me and you will deliver me. I love you, Lord, and I’m believing that You are absolutely everything I need! (Psalm 65:4: 95:14-15)
