I have not slept well the last two nights, with pain and fevers keeping me awake. Because the surgery was on my belly, but also in my hips and back, I must change positions frequently (which is painful enough), and it is hard to get settled. I did finally sleep a few hours in the chair this morning, but really want to sleep at night.
This is the good news, though: today is the sabbath and they are bringing me sacrament! I wanted to be ready as I could, being sure I was loving Nathan well and at peace with my kids and showered and clean. I even got dressed for the first time since surgery! I did my best, and am as prepared as I can be.
Nathan plays violin with the choir today, so went early to practice. He recorded practice for me, so I can hear him play and listen to it while I read an ensign article my friend told me about this month, about a lady whose spouse was diagnosed with cancer.
I will probably fall asleep while I wait, but at least I am thinking about it, and at least I am dressed and prepared as can be. I am so excited for sacrament to come today! I really need it and the strength it gives!
