Mersa Christmas Everyone! Or should I say Merry Christmas?
Mike and I landed in the E.R. last night at 11 p.m. He has a bought of Mersa and is on vicatin and strong antibiotics. I've been up since 4 a.m. He was very brave through a very painful lancing. I was glad to wish nurses and doctors and security guards merry christmas and blessed to have a rite aid across the street where we could pick up Mike's prescriptions.
All in all it's been a great Christmas. Fun time. Family. Good food. We had a big breakfast of coffee, juice, eggs, bacon, sausage, and cinnamon rolls... thanks Annie for the rolls!
The kids are enjoying their gifts. They were few but I think it makes it ever more fun and special. Not Christmas overload. In particular Libby is loving her princess tea set and Samuel has blocks and is building like crazy... and dinos that are everywhere. Mike bought me a watch and a lovely chunky metal and onyx like bracelet... and a massage from the kids :)
I got him some books he wanted... and a few other prizes (from the kids of course).
I prayed earlier this week for a ham. I really wanted a good yummy ham... you know the kind with a honey crust... Well, some one from the church brought us a gorgeous ham. Completely out of the blue. They didn't know my prayer. Isn't it amazing how God cares and even answers ham prayers?
I'm looking forward to gathering around the table tonight with my family and Mike's family and enjoying turkey, ham, green bean casserole, sweet potatoes, yeast rolls, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, corn fruit salad, a green salad, and apple pie for dessert. Super yum.
All in all, it's been a wonderful Christmas. We are blessed! Mike is recovering and will hopefully spend this afternoon resting.
