Tuesday Update

Hello, everyone! Thank you so much for your continued support and prayers. My wonderful husband has been fabulous and has taken good care of me. My 2 children have been terrific helpers.

I am still tired and feel weak. I can't really do a whole lot of anything without needing to sit down. Still trying to figure out a way to get my strength back up again. I do feel better, but just tired. I've lost a few pounds (not exactly the way I wanted to go about losing weight!). I am also almost caffeine free at this point. For the last 2 weeks or so, coffee and diet coke have not tasted good to me at all. I haven't had coffee in almost 2 weeks (I was cutting that out a lot before I got sick). I am only drinking about half of a diet coke each day. A positive side effect is that my feet aren't swelling, I've lost weight, and I'm excited to be soda-free soon.

Tomorrow morning is my heart ultrasound, so please pray that it goes well. My stress test is in late August. I truly hope I am better/stronger by then, because I know I won't be able to make it through the test feeling like I do now. My husband is going with me.

Right now, I'm afraid to drive by myself anywhere because I am so tired and can't do much. My husband has been great to drive me around. I have gone for short outings to the library and to the grocery store to pick up a few items with him. However, I haven't been able to tolerate any shopping trips or long visits anywhere.

Please continue to keep us in your prayers!

Thanks and I hope all of you have a wonderful week!
