1000 Blessing's Friday

I almost forgot it was Friday! Continuing on with my many blessings...

41. I was released from therapy on Wednesday! Now this doesn't mean that I'm not exercising anymore. It just means that my therapist has shown me all she can for now. When I have the other hip done she will be back!

42. Speaking of exercising...I am so truly thankful that I have exercises I can actually do! They are quite simple and I know it will take a long time until I could ever go to a gym or anything like that, but for now there are so many things I can do to get better circulation and maybe even build up a muscle or two!

43. My dear, precious mother thinks that since the church is no longer providing meals that she needs to step in and feed us. She has already made us three meals this week and my daughter just left to go get the vegetable soup she made. Mmmmmm! I'll be thrilled the first time I can drive and go see her and treat her like a queen!

44. I received the hospital bill from my hip surgery. It started out a little under $31,000! After insurance paid their part I will owe around $1500. So I am assuming my next surgery will cost about the same. Very blessed indeed!

45. I'm making several more friends in Blogville this week! It's such a pleasure to get to know so many amazing women.

46. I am spreading my pain medicine further apart and going down on my prednisone! I'm almost certain that by the end of the year I should be close to being off prednisone. I've been on it so long you have to be very careful when tapering off. But I will work hard at it!

47. I managed to collect a huge box full of pet food and treats to send to the animal shelter this week just by sending away for samples and coupons.

48. The sound of laughter and singing from my three kids as they watched High School Musical. It's nice that even as old as they are they still watch good, clean, family movies. You can guess what we're doing tonight if you have younger children!

49. I'm blessed to have such a hard working husband that gives his all every day he goes to work. I'm so thankful he enjoys what he does too!

50. I was also blessed this week with one of my friends spending five hours sitting on the bed with me laughing, crying and sharing what God is doing in our lives right now.

Bless your heart....

Having someone laugh and cry with you is the best therapy out there...

I'm going to add you to the prayer list.. what would you like for it to say? specifically?

Thanks for stopping by, Amy...I loved visiting today and reading your blessing post!

I'm new here so am not sure what the cause of the physical therapy is and the pain meds...but hope that you are healing quickly!

How old are your kids? Mine our just 5 and 8...and isn't it funny that so many younger children like this are so into HSM? But then, I remember looking at Tiger Beat Magazines when I was around 9 and listening to Partidge Family records!
I am so glad HSM is wholesome...and that it appeals to us moms, too!
(That Troy...if only I was...gulp...25 years younger!) LOL

God bless!

Gotta love health coverage! When I was pregnant I had to take zyran (sp?) which would have cost me $50/pill if I didn't have insurance!

Hi Amy. Being released from therapy must mean that you are now able to do exercises on your own. Hope you will continue to do well.

You have a kind heart for donating food to the animal shelter.

Thank you for sharing all these wonderful blessings. It's very uplifting.
