I got home from the hospital on Sunday afternoon.

Right now I'm feeling pretty good physically. Not taking a whole lot of pain meds other than motrin. I try to stay off the heavy stuff as much as possible. I don't know if I ever mentioned that the delivery was a c-section.

So now I'm on the road to healing. Physically, it shouldn't take too long.

Things that are getting me through:
Of course the gospel of Jesus Christ and prayers of His faithful children on our behalf.
The strength of my husband and the priesthood he holds.
The love and support of family and friends.
The generosity and compassion of so many.
As I get stronger, service to others.
Looking forward to rebuilding our lives.

And trying very, very hard to heal. One moment is better than the next. Another moment hurts worse than the last.

Now I'm going to finish watching Sorcerer's Apprentice and eat some potato soup.

*also, I'm looking for a ladybug locket. Preferrably something in silver so I can wear it with anything. I've searched everywhere online and I can only find one in gold. Something along these lines:

only silver. If you come across something like this, please let me know!

Brenda texted me while I was in Idaho about your sweet Ella. My heart broke for you and I have had you in my thoughts and prayers. My cousin's wife wrote some beautiful things on her blog about their little baby boy after he lived just a few short hours. Maybe it will be of some comfort to you. http://davidrebekah.blogspot.com/2010_03_01_archive.html
Oh, and I miss having you come raid the supply closet at work! :)
