Around the corner….

28 09 2009

I believe that we have turned a corner. Friends that see us out keep commenting on how good Ed looks. I have to agree as I have seen some color come back into his face and some weight come back onto his bones.

When he first got home from the hospital he was very weak and his face was absolutely grey. The struggle he has with his breathing was taking a huge toll on him while his body worked very hard to mend from a broken hip, two surgeries and blood transfusions. He couldn’t seem to stay awake for more than a couple of hours at a time and when he was awake he didn’t have a lot of energy to do much. Most of his energy was spent on physical therapy which, as it appears, has worked out well.

Lately, he has been walking more with his cane than with his walker. That alone helps him to look better because he is not all hunched over the walker. Carrying a ten pound canister of oxygen on his shoulder when ever he leaves the house is cumbersome but, hey, we are happy to be getting out. He is re-gaining his independence because he can drive again. He doesn’t fall asleep whenever he is left alone for more than 15 minutes. Life is exciting around here. hahaha.

We are people of faith. We have both been through a lot in our lifetimes. God is still on the throne of our lives and we are still madly in love with each other. We have turned a corner and it is good.
