Come on...REALLY?

The last couple of days have been really uneventful... Until the last 30 minutes...

When I was in the hospital there were a couple of times I felt maybe I was getting a UTI. But the feeling always passed really quickly and for the most part I have felt great since I got home.

But low and behold, I just got up off the couch for the first time in 3 hours to use the bathroom and I passed 3 kidney stones. CRAZY!!! Thank God, the last 4 I have passed really weren't bad... Just more of a surprise than anything else. Honestly , I came out laughing to Greg and the boys! I truly am really extremely healthy normally. But I have had my share of weird issues as of late.

I am so thankful hat God has made these sort of crazy things work out ok so far. Little Levi seems to be handling everything great. And my heart is falling more and more in love with him with each passing day! Bed rest has given me the chance to just sit and treasure each movement and heartbeat I get to hear.

I am thankful that since we have gotten home, the family has adjusted great to Mom being in bed. Really it has been better than I had anticipated! Last night the other families from our small group came over to help me clean our bedroom... What a relief! It looks great and my room is now the refuge I have always hoped it to be:). I did have to humble myself and accept the help and we had some good laughs in the process of getting it done. It was actually a lot of fun:). I am so thankful to have friends who are so willing to help us out:)

Thanks so much for your continued prayers for baby Levi!

Really? Wow Sara. That is just crazy! I am so thankful that you are being loved on and blessed by others. How wonderful to just spend this special time with Levi and connecting with him. My prayers are going up daily. Rest, rest friend. Wish I could be there to paint your toenails! :) Love you so much!

I can't believe you passed those stones at home!!! Crazy! But I'm glad they're out and now you can move on. Well, not really. You're in bed, but you know what I mean.

Praying for you and Levi every day. And, yes, it would have been a humbling experience to let others come help me clean, but I'm so glad you did and now you can really relax!

PS. I was hoping to call you this weekend but Matthew isn't getting much better, so I might have to wait a few days. :(

Love you friend!
