Recovery Day 4
Several days in since surgery now and Jen is making some really good progress. We were told that she would not be able to stand up straight for as long as a few weeks, and she is very close to straight right now. She was also able to walk 2 blocks early this morning, so I am really encouraged by her strides forward.
She is still struggling with nausea from the pain medication and exhaustion, but things could certainly be worse. Her days have so far mostly consisted of laying in the recliner, sleeping off the pain meds.
We are so thankful to our family for taking the boys off our hands for a few days. My parents took all four boys initially, then Isaac and Henry went with my sister and her husband to a Detroit Tigers baseball game. (Brooks and Clark get to go in August)
Here are a few pictures my sister sent of their fun while momma recovers.
So thankful for so much support during this trial. Our families, friends, and church are praying, helping with the kids, providing meals, and giving encouragement regularly. Thank you to everyone, and praise God for such a great start to recovery.
Even thought I hate to see my bride in such discomfort, it is so nice to be able to focus on her needs in a quiet house. She will be back up and going very soon I hope.
Have a great Memorial Day everyone!
