A Pleasant Sunday

Today I stayed for the whole 3-hour block at church--that was great! I took a nap when I got home, but I didn't feel too tired or anything. I AM getting more energy! It was good to be there. As usual, I talked to a lot of people--they are still very interested and very concerned. They are awfully good to me.

I am branching out a little on my food--tonight I had some tomato soup from Trader Joes, and it tasted good. Tomorrow we see the internist, and he may be able to give me some tips on how to improve my swallowing. I'm still mostly tethered to my "tree," and "eating" out of my feeding tube.

I am able to do more around the house. Tonight I even did the dishes--it feels good to be getting back into the swing of things, and to be able to do more to help out. Kelsey made dinner--she has done that a lot. She has become quite the good shopper and cook. However, Spence still does the lion share of the work around here--so many errands, lots of "honey do" things, and just a lot to make all of our lives easier. He took Brady shopping this week to buy warmer clothes, and even bought him some Church clothes. I am thankful to have him around. Well, tomorrow may bring news of my cat scan--we'll have to see.


  1. All of that sounds so GOOD.. I'm so glad you are building your energy back, bit by bit. That is excellent. Wow, who would have thought being able to do the dishes would be a victory????? Big hug, Sue

  2. Sorry that dissecting the acorn squash was difficult. Glad the tomato soup was yummy! Go girl!

  3. Hurrah for being able to go to church (all 3 meetings), enjoy some tomato soup, and even do the dishes! Hope you have an encouraging and helpful appointment tomorrow. Love, Suzy

  4. I am so glad to hear that you have some improvement in lots of areas. I am praying for good results from the scan and some help with your swallowing. Lots of love!


  5. I love TJ's tomato soup too! It's wonderful to hear that you are doing things again that we never even think about! Cleaning dishes, helping with meals, really isn't a chore after all! Swallowing is something we all take for granted but you never will again!
    Have a wonderful step by step improving week!
    Love, Becky

  6. Sounds like some energy is coming back. Isn't it interesting how enjoyable work can be. But we all need to be needed, and you are!
