I have been keeping busy; right now I am making the final push to rip all our cds onto the hard drive, so we can sell most of our cds and our stereo equipment. My current frustration is that I have far more ideas and projects than energy, so every day I must temper my zeal and pay attention to my needs for rest. My primary focus is to take stock of all our possessions and sell/donate/trash what is extraneous, and organize and maintain what is needed. Only being able to lift 8 pounds limits what I can tackle. Otherwise I try to keep the house in order so Danesha can focus on finishing her dissertation and watch movies, read, or video games for mild activity. I pulled a muscle at the base of my right rib cage which means I can't take a full breath without shooting pain, very frustrating for someone who enjoys yoga and chanting and not being in pain.
Household Update: We reconfigured the desk and computer area to better serve the dissertation process and that has served Nesh well and she has been more productive. Maddie has recovered from her most recent of chronic ear infections and seems to be doing much better after a food change and eye drops.
Acknowledgements: I give deep heartfelt thanks to the multitude that have helped us through loving support, medical knowledge and care, financial aid, prayer and care. It has made this a much more pleasant journey for us and I thank each and every one of you. I know there is no quid pro quo in these gifts to us but I intend not to disappoint your collective faith in me and in us. If there is one prayer it is thank you.
