It has almost been a week and I decided to give you an update. My abdomen actually feels pretty good. Hardly any discomfort or pains there. But it is another story about all the stitches in my vagina. That area will be slower healing and I am not to lift more than 5-10 pounds for 2-3 months. That is a long time. And I have decided that it is hard to know if you are doing it. So I am just not doing it for now if I am unsure. Others are helping me graciously.
Yesterday, my new friend from church, Patti came over. She is a nurse by trade and is a fantastically encouraging person. After eating some of the bread she brought hot out of her oven, she suggested I call my surgeon's office about a few issues I was having. They got me in yesterday afternoon and discovered that I had both an infection in my bladder and also in my vagina where everything is trying hard to heal. So I got the medicine and am doing better today.
I got to attend the last meeting of my Beth Moore study group today and it was a sweet time of sharing. The ladies picked me up and brought me home. I am on the verge of having a hard copy letter with pictures to send out with our Christmas cards. I have been working on it for a long time, and it is finally almost ready to go. Let me know if you would like one but are not on our snail mail list. Send me your address.
Well, I am indeed weary tonight and am going to sleep! Blessings to you- Nancy Fritz
