The outpouring of love and concern about our accident has been both encouraging and humbling...we so appreciate all of your prayers, and we've loved all your comments!
We're making progress, slowly but surely. It never ceases to amaze me how God provides for us through gracious friends and family.
On Thursday, my parents came down for the day...dad was entertainer extraordinaire, and mom did lots of laundry and made dinner for us!
On Friday, I had to head to Anchorage (a trip I had already planned for other things, primarily food to feed my family)...thankfully Kindra had to head to Anchorage for an appointment anyway, and was willing to cart us along and have a much longer, harder day than she would have had otherwise. Despite being tired and sore, I felt like I had to get new car it seats sooner than later. More about that on another post, but that mission is accomplished. Kindra was such a trooper...hauling everything for me from chicken feed to Christmas presents. (No, the chickens don't get presents). I was so grateful to have her with me...by 2 p.m. I had hit the figurative wall, and it was touch and go and pain and waning energy from there.
While we were traipsing around Anchorage, my friend Mel and her daughters were at my house watching Jacob and Anna (Andrew was with me), and Mel was a virtual house-cleaning fairy! More laundry done, and floors swept, vacuumed, and mopped! She headed home after lunch when Ben and Rosella arrived for the afternoon shift, and they were continuing work on another major project for me (more about that in another post, too)!
Today Ben finished cleaning out his van and putting on the snow tires (I think we've kept those two busier since Wed. than they've been in a while!), and delivered the van to us this afternoon...we have wheels again.
All in all, things are looking up...we feel incredibly blessed.
A few things to pray for, if you would:
1. Andrew-the majority of the time, he seems completely fine. But, he's started having severe headaches at night. A tad worrisome.
2. Me-I'm not sure which is worse-the fact that I'm still so sore that it hurts to lift Anna, or that I'm feeling either emotionally drained or over-emotional!
3. Insurance-van damage will be assessed on Monday.
