It's been an eventful few days.

Lots of visits to the hospital. Lots of writing. Lots of sleeping!

My mom took my daughter and I to the mall today. It was nice just to be around other people and see the hustle and bustle of humanity. I'd been hiding in my house a little too much lately, venturing out only to the hospital and to work. And yeah, I could feel the depression start to creep back in.

Hubby is scheduled for another surgery tomorrow. That makes three in six days, and he has to have anesthesia for each one. The doc is thinking he may be able to go home early next week, but he's going to have to take his vacuum sponge machine with him. It's amazing to watch that thing work, sucking the infection out of his arm in a little tube.

Unfortunately, the new antibiotic they put him on made him break out in a rash, so he's been dealing with itchy skin! They gave him a shot of Benadryl right in his IV and needless to say, he was out pretty soon after that. :-)

I just want to get him home. Things are slowly being worked out financially. Looks like the VA will be able to help out with the mortgage, and we've been given an extension with our car payment. But it's the everyday bills I'm struggling with. But as always, I remind myself that God will provide.

Writing was great on Thursday and Friday. Got lots and lots done, and I had a wonderful time. I think tomorrow I'll take the laptop to the hospital and work while hubby is in surgery.


  1. Hang in there Melissa.

  2. Big, big hugs, Melissa.

    And our house is scheduled to be done by late August (please, please, please).

  3. Have been following your blog for a short time but think the blog:
    hopeclark.blogspot may find a way to help you financially while you write. You might want to check it out....lots of prayers for you.


I love to hear from you!
