Challenging Week

My week started off not so great!  I have been having problems with some tenderness in her my left "big" toe.  Then... on Friday it started swelling!  By Saturday I was in excruciating pain... to the point I couldn't stand it any longer, and cried the entire night!  I can be a pretty emotional gal at times... but not because of things like this!  I can honestly say I have NEVER experienced pain like this before.  Monday came and I made an appointment to see our family doctor.  He inspected it closely and couldn't find a reason for the swelling, or redness to it.  It wasn't an ingrown toe nail... he knew that much.  So... he called in for an x-ray, which I had done this morning.  Nothing showed up, so he referred me to a foot doctor.  I went there this afternoon.  

Everything went well... they loaded me up on some even better pain meds than my family doctor gave me. They ordered yet another x-ray (go figure).  Everything came back okay, but apparently I had some sort of infection that was getting into the bone!  Talk about painful!  Hope this never happens to you... I have been absolutely miserable!  Thankfully, the meds are finally starting to work and I'm feeling good!  The best part about all of this is that I am working from home this week!  Which means... I get to spend unlimited time with my baby girl!  She has been such a sweet girl through all of this.  Just yesterday alone, we spent nearly 3 hours sitting in a waiting room... then another 45 minutes in the actual doctors office.  She was such a sport and sat patiently in my lap!  I was able to walk around a little with her to keep her entertained... we received so many compliments from patients who noticed how well she was doing.  That made this momma so proud.

So... today I praise God for blessing me with this beautiful baby girl, a wonderful husband who has babied me like crazy in attempts to comfort me in any way he can.  And also for a pretty awesome dad who has come with me to all of these doctors appointments and sat patiently with me.  I haven't been able to drive because of the pain.  Then with the meds they prescribed... I now can't drive even if I wanted to.  So... me and my sweet girl will be stuck at home to love on one another!

Here are some sweet shots I grabbed of her the other day... I love her!

I love her sweet tush... and most of all... I LOVE that soft touch, tight hug and oohy gooey kiss she gives!  She is so precious to me and I couldn't be more thankful to have her in my life!

More pics and updates to come soon... Until then... Brantley
