Not a quick process…but we are progressing

Friday was the first day Larry and I went out in the car.  Our daughter Jody drove us to Lexington and (don’t tell anyone) we stopped at Chick-fil-a for a sandwich.  We did use light mayo!!  Larry was beginning to get a little depressed at home.  The nurse had told us that between week 3 and 4 the nerve endings they had cut to get to the heart will start growing and so Larry will have some weird feelings. He gets a little dizzy and a little sick to his stomach.  I am so proud of him and I think he is really progressing but I AM REALIZING THIS IS NOT A QUICK PROCESS
Now about this no salt, no sodium, no taste food we are eating.  Tonight I fixed mashed potatoes with Mrs. Dash and I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!  Well when Larry took his first bite he said he couldn’t believe these were mashed potatoes!  Breakfast isn’t too bad because we both love oatmeal.  I went to the health store today.  Things are so much higher when you try to eat healthy.  I keep thinking, “what will we eat in Haiti?” The canned goods we have lived on have tons of sodium.  I don’t think GOAT is a white meat either???
Larry so loves getting his cards.  I have them hung on clotheslines throughout the front room.  Every time he walks around the room it gives him so much encouragement.  We feel your prayers and we feel your love.  Just a bit of trivia before I end this.  We had Granny Littrell’s bed moved to the first floor as Larry can’t climb steps yet.  This is the same bed I would lift my Granny’s legs up in to get her in bed some fifty years ago.  She had so much fluid that the doctor said each leg weighed about fifteen pounds.  Now I am lifting my husband’s legs up to put him in this same bed!

One thought on “Not a quick process…but we are progressing

    Yes, I doubt that goat is on the list of acceptable “white meats” but that wouldn’t affect many of us — only a select few. I’m so glad that you all were able to get out – and Chick-Fil-A is probably as good an outing as any. I know it must be hard to not get out to enjoy the beauty of nature in spring!

    I’m so glad Larry is doing well, and – yes, it is not something one gets over quickly! I know it’s a disappointment that you won’t be able to be in Haiti for the Easter sunrise service, but “Wait on ‘de Lord!” His timing is perfect!

    We love you both so much, and pray that the Lord will bless your socks off this Easter, as you celebrate life on this earth, and the life we are promised with Jesus for all eternity — because of his sacrifice for us! (Please print this out and hang it on Larry’s clothesline!)
