Recovery Day 1

Well luckily Day 1 went much better than Night 1. Once the pain meds got under control Jeremy was able to relax today and rest. The pain medicine he is on tends to make him very sleepy. He knows visitors are coming and going and he appreciates them all VERY much he just may not be awake for the entire visit :) and as some of you saw today he would tell you I am closing my eyes now. He sat up on the side of bed 4 times today and stood twice. He also got to start having clear liquids and some Jello. The plan for tomorrow is to walk. Is he nervous about walking.......absolutely, but will he do it, I have NO doubt! My post is going to be short tonight mainly because he wants NO lights on (except my computer because he knows my laptop and I have a real close relationship :) and he doesn't fight it). With all the lights off tonight though I am realizing how little sleep I have had, so I am going to try and get some rest. No new news today except that he is recovering and is off to a great start.
A few thank yous tonight:
*Thanks to Kelly for the 2 cute bags of goodies, drinks, and puzzle books!
*Thanks to Melissa for the Sonic and fruit treat.
*Thanks to Sharon for picking up my new glasses(that I needed terribly for night time so the nurse doesn't see how blind I am without my contacts!) and the roll of quarters!
*Thanks to all the guys at Jeremy's work for EVERYTHING.
*Thanks to George and his family, you have such a giving spirit.
*Thanks to Tata for taking the boys today to McDonald's and swimming to get their mind of things and esp for bringing them to see daddy.
*Thank to Ian and Carter for the beautiful pictures they painted their daddy!(we taped them right in front of Jeremy's bed so they are the first thing he sees when he wakes up..........except that darn clock he actually sees it then the pictures!)
*Thanks to our amazing neighbors for mowing our yard today.
*Thank you for all our visitors today it was so nice to see friends and family today.
Once again a truly blessed day. Jeremy did get to see the boys today for about 10 minutes. Of course Jeremy is laid up in the bed so when Carter walked in he said, "aaaaawwwww Daddy sleepy" he was so concerned about how sleepy daddy was and Ian couldn't get by his side quick enough to get a hug. Their visit wore daddy out because he took a big nap after they left.

When doing my devotion today in The Purpose Driven Life I came across my verse for the day.
2 Corinthians 4:17 For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.

God has a purpose behind every problem and even though this seems like a huge pitfall in our life we are being transformed by trouble in our walk with Christ each and everyday.

Had to share a pic tonight! This was a pic we took before church on Father's Day. My 3 boys are too cute!
