It was non-stop while we were there and it was so fun! But when we got back, my body crashed. We walked in the door, I lay on the couch, and my body just crashed. And it's been doing that for quite some time. Even though I've been doing so much better and been able to do a lot more, walk a lot further, etc - I still pay for it. Usually it means I have to lay, recharge a bit, and then I'm able to get up and do a little more. But the crash from Seattle was literally a 6 hour straight nap during the day, wake up to eat a little bit even though my tummy was queasy, watch a bit of Netflix, then sleep hard through the night. My body needed a really big re-charge. And the following day I still felt like I was recovering!
So energy is still a huge issue we are dealing with and in a few short days I will go to DC to see my doctor and discuss these things and get examined and find out what's what.
So that is why I am anticipating this next appointment at the end of the week to find out the next plan of action and see if we can't get some more energy ideas put into place and well as continuing to address killing off the last remaining little buggers of Lyme&Co. Thankfully it looks as though there may not be many left. But just as soon as I start thinking that and the doctors start evaluating that, sometimes Lyme can throw you for a loop...it's such a tricky disease. So we continue to pray that God heals me completely and thoroughly and rids my body of all traces of this horrid disease!
We are thankful for how much more I am able to do and for all the improvement we've seen over the last years. Even when it's hard to be thankful for the lows, I know God has used them to help encourage others, so I know there is glory for Him in that. And I know my kids watch me closely and are learning valuable lessons that I hope one day will translate to them in one way or another. So - I anticipate the end of the week and what the doctor will say!
