Day 2 of pain!

I keep looking at that profile picture of mine and realize how much I miss smiling! No one to make me laugh right now and even if it is funny...it hurts way too much.

Day 2 has been quite an ordeal. It's 5:00pm and I'm STILL in bed.

I got up twice finding I quickly had to lay back down. I've been extremely dizzy and with the headache I have....it's just not good to stand on both feet. I'm concluding at this point I may have a slight concussion.

I'll spare sending any pictures at this point. I saw the looks on my kids faces today and it was sheer horror.


Quickly I told Ian to get me a mirror....HE REFUSED!!!

I'm surprised how quick the lip is healing. The hole is now sealed up and it's already starting to look like one GIGANTIC canker sore! (No lemons or salt for me)

Please be in prayer tonight that tomorrow I might be able to get out of bed. I called both of my instructors and explained to them the situation and let them know I would not be at school tomorrow. Both agreed it was okay.

Please be in prayer that I will not be in so much pain tomorrow. I can't lift up my right arm very high at all. My bruised hip makes it very difficult to stand up and well...then just the pain of everything today has been unbelieveable.

Never did I realize how saving your own child from harm could hurt so much.

You are definately up for the "Mother of the Year" award! Mom's often wear the emotional bruises for their children but you have taken that to a whole new level where the rest of us don't want to go! Hope you feel better soon!

Yeah...I'll take that award proudly! Although, I keep asking myself..."WHAT WAS I THINKING???"
