5 months-post surgery

First of all Happy Fathers Day to all of you out there:)

Today is 5 months since I had my surgery. It has flown by but at the same time it feels like yesterday. It has been fight but I have been up for it. I was just sitting here wondering how long will the pain last?? How long will I have to fight my arm from tighting up. It is a daily struggle to keep my arm stretched. How long will I have to fight lymphedema? All of these questions are driving crazy today. I know radiation continues to accumulate. My dr said that I should start feeling better in by Nov. at least from the side effects. So I guess we will see. I don't like to complain a lot I do have my life:)

I did not take any pictures today of the girls and Daddy because Madison has been sick with a bug all day. Poor baby threw up for 12 hrs. She is so tired and sore. She was so pitiful all day. She kept telling me that she felt like flat Stanley. I sure many of you with kids know who he is but if you don't she is referring to how skinny she is now not having anything in her body.

Mike is getting on the road first thing in the morning. Miss you already.

Well off to take care of my baby

Hi Cindy! Wow...I have a feeling that there's an amazing story behind thsi butterfly pic:D By all means yes...go ahead and put it on your blog. I actually got it from I totally love butterflies especially the blue ones. I went to Costa Rica butterglies galore)my country in 2007 and a butterfly sat on my hand! I felt as if the Lord was talking to me...ever since butterflies are very special to me. They are the only animals that transform 100%. That's how we should be when we mature in Christ...100% transformed!

Have a blessed week!

Hugs, Susan

Howdy from Texas! I am so glad you posted on my blog so that I had a chance to "meet" you and your lovely family. The photo of the girls at the bottom is just so precious! Three beautiful girls!! How blessed you are.

I want to thank your husband for his service to our country. And to thank YOU and your DAUGHTERS for your service to our country in your love and support for him.

May God continue to hold you all in the palm of his hand.

I will keep you in my prayers that in the next months ahead you have an easy recovery. I'm so glad that Mike was able to spend time at home for a few days and I hope he has a safe trip back. I hope that Madison is feeling better! Poor thing! Have a good week!
