Finding Solid Ground

Last week was horrible. Treatment days were long and painful. I was mentally, physically and emotionally exhausted. Josh was home on Spring Break, so Steve had both boys all week. I think we were both excited about Friday. I'm on a three week break from even seeing a doctor. Rescan is Monday, April 23rd. I'm not really thinking about that…really can't think ahead that far!

My parents got in Friday evening. The weekend is really a blur…I slept most of Friday evening, Saturday morning and Saturday early afternoon. Big UK win Saturday…church Sunday, church picnic and egg hunt and another brief crash Sunday evening. Monday I started back to work. Tracy Twaddell started his first week as the new senior minister at Palm Bay Christian Church…I REALLY enjoy having him here and I can't wait to see where this leads. lots of meetings and defining summer schedules for PBCC programs. GREAT night with families tonight as we relived a few of the events surrounding Jesus' betrayal, death and resurrection.

I kind of feel like last week is gone and I haven't really looked back. My energy level is low, but controlled. Leg pain is coming and going. Oxycodone is a daily normal for me. Sleep is scattered.

Every week has its new set of challenges and adjustments.

All I know is that…UK is #1! I am anything but normal. I don't slow down, but crash land. God is doing amazing things in and through Palm Bay Christian Church.

Steve got accepted into UCF for nursing school and starts May 14th! We are excited…and adjusting. He still has a LOT to do between now and then…oh, and we might be closing on our new home before the end of the month. Lots of details surrounding both of these events…too many details for me right now! I'm taking as it comes…much more relaxed than my old normal…I'm sure that will soon change again when I can handle all of these major changes occurring at the same time.

Good thing God never changes. Good friends don't change much either. Both are keeping me going right now…one foot in front of the other, one day at a time.
