Its nineteen 19 days post-op (from Knee Replacement Surgery). This is the photo and scripture I keep before me during these days.God does show up in the earthly things. I have learned more about myself and I suspect some of that learning will show up in future posts.

God has been with me each step I have taken and in each unwilling muscle stretched.

The brain fog seems to be lifting and I feel like I am “coming back.”

I am grateful for my husband who took on the care-giving role once again as well friends and family who stood by me during these days with meals, notes, and phone calls and listened to me on the days it all seemed too much.


(Join me on Facebook. I’ll be glad to see you there.)

  1. So glad to hear that healing is becoming noticeable. Today is a hard day for me but it has become easier every year so I can see there is healing and ease even where sadness still lingers. Will continue to keep you in my prayers.
