At home.

Hey guys, it's me Jennifer. I got home last night after 7. I couldn't wait to see the kids. They were so excited to see me.

Yesterday was a long day of attempting to recover and rest. I threw up a lot (everything) once yesterday but am doing better now. Pain is under control and I LOVE being in the comfort of my own bed. My mom thinks I've lost some weight.

Surgery went very well and I was thankful the competent group of doctors and nurses I had working on my behalf. I know it must have been the Holy Spirit giving me peace yesterday before surgery. It all happened so fast but I knew God was with me. When I came out of surgery on Wednesday the first thing I remembered saying was that I was in pain and then I threw up. The pain was horrible the first night and it was made worst by having to do a non-stress test on baby boy. They strapped me down with two belts and when you've just had surgery on your tummy... well, I think you can imagine the pain... not fun :) But good thing is he's doing great! He's fine and moving around.

Now I'm on bed rest for two weeks and can't lift more than 10 pounds for 6-8 weeks. That means no putting kids in and out of cribs, car seats, highchairs, etc. Boy, this will be interesting.

Thank you for your prayers, love and support.

okay, I'm off to take a nap....

CA feels very far away right now. Wish I could come help you for the next few weeks.

Not sure which readers live close by...

Can someone in the church call Jennifer or Mike to help coordinate childcare?

That would be a big help!

Jen: Stay at peace. Rest in your nest dear one and let the healing streams do their work. So, when is Mike going to write his book? He, too, is good with words. What a team!

Dearest Jennifer,
Once again the distance is too far away...I wish I could come and help out with the kids! Is there something you need that I can do from here?
Love you so much! Glad to hear that you and the little one is back at home!

Hugs and prayers
