quick update

Mike was sick throwing up yesterday. He was really, really unwell.

We went to the E.R. yesterday to get his packing removed. The incision looks clean.

He's feeling better today. Tired and worn out but keeping food and fluids down.

I'm burnt out and exhausted and don't think I can do another dang thing. I managed to hurt/twist my hip and knee (on my left side) and my right foot is still really hurting. I feel like the Hunchback of Notre Dame.

I'm sad to have canceled a family party last night... and I don't think we'll make a family event today. But the way we're feeling... I don't think it would be good to be around anyone.

So we're resting today. Literally in bed chilling out. I think a little back to the future movie watching and a little Screwtape Letters reading... and some sleep are in order.

Wow friend... overload! Just think, things can always get worse... You could have a splinter on your pinky finger. Just kidding friend.
Just thought I'd try to make you laugh by saying one of those 'not to say' things. Did it work!?

I'm sorry, Jennifer. Just saw your post. I will pray for quick recoveries and rested hearts.

Love you,

Kels

PS--Please give Mike a hug for me. :)

Hi there -- just found your blog from my dear friend Anne (Olives on a Monday). Looks like you have your hands full! Where is your husband in seminary? My husband and I moved from Chesapeake in 2006 to plant a church here in Lexington, Ky. I sure do miss some of those places you write about ... especially Harris Teeter!

Thanks Jess, you made me laugh! "Your hair is standing up well."

Em- I missed you too! Look forward to when I see you!

Melody- my husband Mike is attending Westminster Theological Seminary (Philadelphia, PA)... thankfully he'll be finished in May 2009. Can I get an Amen?! Hope church planting goes well!
