gratitude pt 2

5 things I am grateful for today:

1. good friends who called and wrote concerned comments
2. the most beautiful loaf of homemade bread I have ever seen
3. my husband who picked up some groceries and made dinner
4. priesthood blessings
5. an understanding boss

So, yesterday I thought I was getting better. By 4:00 in the afternoon I had had crackers and sprite and kept them down. I was feeling pretty great. My friend came by with some homemade bread, I had some and still was feeling great. Dave came home with groceries and dinner and I had a little of that and felt sneaky tummy........what a tricker. 11:30 pm I was full on sick again. All night I was in the bathroom. I got only 4 - 1/2 hour increments of sleep. I was in so much pain. 8:30 am Dave comes in and says he called his boss and is taking a sick day. Thank you Dave's boss. He was downstairs with the kids doing breakfast and playing and had things under control. Thank you Dave. He kindly asks what he can do for me and humbly I ask for a blessing. I was in serious pain. My stomach was swollen and painful to touch....I could not even have elastic bands of clothing around it because it hurt so bad. I have never been one to ask for priesthood blessings often, only when I really think there is nothing else I can do. I should have asked for one sooner. Dave gave me a blessing and I was sick only once after. I was able to stand straight, walk to the bed and slept from 8:30 to 12:30. I am feeling better and want to say thank you again to everyone!!!!

What a good attitude you have. I'm so sorry you've been so sick. I hope you start to feel better! The family reunion looks like it was a blast.

Oh dear, have you been to the doctor? You do have a great attitude. But I'm worried about you.

I'm so glad you're better!! I was going to call yesterday, but I didn't want to bug you if you were sleeping or something. Let me know if you need anything or want to meet up tomorrow. :)
