I have my car back!!
Mom drove me out to Vol-tech to pick it up yesterday. Actually, I kind of tricked her into it (love you, Mom!). I called and told her I had two questions. She asked what the first was and that's when I asked if she could drive me out to get my car. She said sure, so I never asked the second question...(which was if she'd be willing to just run me down the street to the grocery store instead of to the mechanic's.)
She picked me up and we headed out. It felt like two hours passed before we finally made it to the mechanic's. Traffic was H-O-R-R-I-B-L-E, horrible. I heard on the radio that it was quickly being considered the worst we've seen on I-205 in years. I skated through the front door just before Nate got home from work.
So, the car is working well. I'm still on pins and needles waiting for it to die again, all the while praying that what we fixed in it did, in fact, fix the car. We really don't want to have to sell it quite yet.
I went to the dr's again today. Things are continuing to improve since Nathaniel's birth! It still amazes me how much changed in my body from that experience, short-lived as the pregnancy was. I'm glad to feel so normal (if you can call it that) these days! If only I could just dump my own private pill collection...These antibiotics are going to mean the end of me, I swear.
I want to shout from the rooftops, though, praise God for a healed body!
P.S. Lorrie, I'd love a copy of the book you found! I'm taking my time going through just such literature right now, and I'm getting a lot from the book you guys gave us in the hospital. It's been helpful. What's the best way to get the book from you? Also, thank you for thinking of us! I appreciate your thoughtfulness so much!
