Hello Again




I have commandeered my husbands Macbook and am writing from atop a mound of pillows with the help of some mild pain killers and muscle relaxers, to say hello. So hello. If anyone is still out there.


I am by no means 100% better, but I am taking it day by day. That's all I can do, right? My three week check up, (this past Tuesday) which included a CT scan, revealed a fluid build up around my left lung, so I didn't get to go home that day. They did an Thoracentesis to drain the fluid, which I refuse to describe.....I hope it will be one of the events in my life that I block out. Let's just say it knocked natural child birth to the back of the bus, just didn't take as long.

On a {much} happier note, before all of this surgery stuff happened, I was asked by the nice people at Pfister Faucets to do a product review of one of their faucets. We received it, Justin installed it and I will tell you all about it this week. If you've seen the Kitchen Facelift, then you know we couldn't afford to replace our sink and faucet, so I considered this opportunity a blessing. The best part is not only did I get to do a review, but YOU get a chance to receive this faucet too! I hope to get the post written (Luckily, I took pictures before I went into the hospital), so be on the lookout.

Thanks again for all the prayers and support you all have extended to me. I keep saying it, and I'll say it again, hopefully, I will be back soon. Oh, by the way, if you have sent me an email and I have not responded, please don't be offended, I am just not there yet, thanks for your patience.

  2. Oh Michelle, I hope you improve more and more everyday. When I would have to be in the hospital I couldn't wait to go home, and that was just a days, not weeks {then recouped at home}. Hang in there! I'm sorry you had so much pain. I have discovered there are other pains we can go through that are worse than labor. At least with labor you know it will end when you have that baby!

  9. Best wishes for a speedy recovery. I'm recovering from surgery, as well, and can relate to "unpleasant" procedures. Hopefully you can focus on more beautiful things to take your mind off it. Blessings and hugs!

  17. Michelle,
    I had to read back several posts to get the gist of your surgery. I am so sorry that you have had such a health ordeal! I am so happy though to know how to take your name before the Throne Of Grace to the One who knows you best and loves you beyond all comprehension. Just know that I am praying for you. May you have a speedy and complete recovery.
    And while you recover I pray for God's comfort and peace to overwhelm you! May you find a new sense of His pressence and life's beauty!

  23. Oh Michelle - I'm sorry to hear about this. I hope that procedure (my husband had one - you're right - it's terrible) is the very last thing before you can say you're 100% better! Sending happy, healthy thoughts your way.
