Tuesday Update

It is Tuesday morning. We are still having fabulous Arizona weather--it may get a little warm tomorrow. I am having so much fun with my sister and niece! It is great to have them here. My sister is in Spence's camp, and has me having snacks all the time, trying to beef up my calorie count! My niece makes sure I drink my Ensure (one of my least favorite things to do), and so they are not only providing fun, but also providing incentives to get me to do better.

Yesterday we went shopping for a while, and then ended up at Chick Fil-A, for a chicken sandwich, and I ate practically the whole thing. My personal cheerleaders cheer when I do something like that! :) We have played games and taken a walk--they still make sure I get my nice long nap in the afternoon. So it's been great!

Sunday was a good day for me--another improvement. Spence and I made dinner together, and I didn't need to rest in between different things. I had the stamina to keep working on it, and didn't feel that total exhaustion that I had before. So my energy is improving. I also could visit with people more at church and again not feel totally wiped out. I am so grateful for the way I am gaining strength--and just hope that it will continue. Well, thanks for all YOUR cheerleading--wow, what a great bunch of friends and family I have. :) Love you all, Louise
