Lois is at home and seems to be doing well for this stage of recovery. She is eating very small meals every two hours or so and all the “plumbing” is working – sometimes too well. She moves from the bed to the sofa to the recliner to the kitchen table. Whatever pain and discomfort she’s having is focused in her lower back but Ibuprofen and Tylenol seem to help. Last night she took the prescription pain medication before going to sleep and slept in the bed all night.
Friends from Northgate Alliance Church in Ottumwa have organized and are bringing in food every other day which is really nice. Several people have stopped by with flowers and cards or just to visit for a few minutes.
We continue to trust the Lord and thank Him for each day.
