It's been a rough few weeks in our house.
Dh continues to have kidney pain, missing work and nearly crying at the intensity.
There was a week of gout in his toes, where he was crawling on hands and knees to the
bathroom. It took 5 days for the medicine to take effect. He can no longer lift and pull things
like he once could, and I'm pretty sure that the riding lawnmower is now going to be my job,
as it jolts his kidneys too much. He's tired of hurting, and I hate this 'new normal'. I want my
healthy, active husband back!
Nonetheless, we know that God's got this. He knew from the beginning that this would be part
of Tony's life, and He will work it out as He sees fit. I try to turn my fears and frustrations over
to him, but some days are better than others. Prayer is appreciated, for all of us.
In other, happier news, here's a link to a number of fun napkin folds, including a cute pumpkin.
In that one, I'd use a cinnamon stick or even a small stick (painted green if you like) rather than
the pickle (how weird).
I'm loving the cooler weather in the evenings, though it remains in the upper 80's and even 90's
here in south Georgia. Upcoming events for us include the local fair, the 9th birthday party for
our son (it was Sept 30, but the party is Oct 14, so Dh can be there), and a rodeo (our first).
What fun things are going on with you?
