I few things I had MISSED...that aren't to be taken for granted!
Showering! That amazing gift has been returned after MONTHS. I have been able to shower for about a week now and everyday, I just want to stand there until there until the hot water gives out. For months, I had to bathe in about 4 inches of water, skillfully scrub the rest, and wash my hair in the kitchen sink. It is amazing to just stand in warm, running water without the fear that you will get some attached pump or some wound wet. I am SO grateful to be able to shower!!!!!
And I am driving again. That might be another thing taken for granted, but it had been months since I had driven myself anywhere. My van missed me...and I missed my independence. I have even driven my youngest to preschool like a normal young mom this week. Her teacher cornered me after I picked her up that day and told me that it was the first time in two months of school that Addie was bubbly and talkative. I think she was just thrilled to have her mom back...this has really taken a toll on ALL of my family. She has been stuck to my side since I have started living again and keeps saying, "aren't you too sick, Mommy?"
