Feeling Better!

Laelia is doing so much better! I’m so glad that it wasn’t as bad as last time. The pain is connected to her left leg and hip and aggravated by picking her up or moving her. Two years ago she had the same thing only on her right side, and much worse for much longer.

She did really poorly that first night of pain (Sunday night), but now (Tuesday afternoon) she hardly notices it at all! What an amazingly fast heal! We’re still careful with her, and I did accidentally hurt her last night carrying her to bed, but it’s so much better now that we’re not worried about her at all!

I’m very thankful right now. I hate mysterious pain! I hate feeling so helpless! I hate when my daughter is hurty, and she gives me that adorable, pitiful face with the pinchy-cheeks and pouty lower lip. Acc! Just stab me in the heart! But thankfully this wasn’t as bad as last time. Nowhere near as bad!

I really appreciate all the prayers and warm thoughts from my family and friends. Sometimes it’s hard for me to feel like God cares about these daily pains and heartaches of ours that don’t effect the rest of the universe. But if I think about it, I’m surrounded by people in my life who care! And I have to give him some credit for that, since I could never have attracted people of this caliber on my own.

I hope to handle these situations in a way that shows God I care too. I care about the things and people he cares about. And that means I VERY MUCH care for my daughter, who has to be one of his favorites. :)

    Alexis, it doesn’t get any better when they get older. I still hate it when my adult children are in pain, sick, or otherwise challenged :)

    If it helps, I doubt she will remember any pain from now when she is older. I don’t!! And I’m sure I had lots of it when I was little, as I had more than my fair share of surgeries. So don’t worry, eventually it will all pass from her memory, not to mention her body. :)
