Being Home Really is Great...

I'll reiterate that, being home is really fabulous. There's not much sleep to be had in a hospital, so I always leave feeling like a zombie. The first day home, I'm usually so happy to be home that I'm a little perky, but fall asleep at the drop of a hat. Then the next day I just sleep and by the third day I am feeling more like a person again. So that gives you an idea of how the last few days have gone for me.

Mother's day was just another day. I was just glad to be home and sleep, get hugs from Jarred and sleep some more. Of course, all the sleep means I don't go to sleep when I need to, so I was up until about 4am.

But today I was up at least before noon. I've been resting on the couch since then. I've had a couple of juices; grapefruit and carrot-lemonade and now I think I'll have a sandwich. Rachel and Jarred went to the beach. It would have been nice to go too, but I just don't have the energy to get myself out there.

I was hoping to do a lot of fun, memorable things with Rachel while she visited, but right now, I just have to remember that being home is good enough for me. I did really want to take her to Seaside. It's just so nice and lovely out there. Walk around, see the sights, have a good meal and come home. I'm hoping that tomorrow I wake up with more energy and that is something we can do. I'll just drag my wheelchair out of the shed and use that. I'm hoping anyway. She leaves on Wednesday and it would be nice to do one fun thing while she is here.

It looks like I will be starting treatment on Thursday. I have an appt with the Dr at 10:00am then I am scheduled for treatment right after that. I will be so glad to get it underway!

The UPS man just delivered the fermented cod liver oil and gallon of coconut oil I ordered! I also need to bottle my kombucha today. This will be round two. I am hoping that I do a better job with the flavoring this time.

That's all! Thanks for your prayers! <3


  1. We just got home from the hospital ourselves and you are right about getting sleep. It just doesn't happen for one reason and another.
    We are thankful you were able to spend Mother's Day at home with Jarred.
