Long "tiring" week...

(First--I posted yesterday about the week 2 raffle , but somehow it's not showing up on others dashboards?? I have tried to re-post it and everything but for some reason it's still not working, however it is on my page, so you can view it---please check it out; we have two amazing raffles this week---->that means, TWO WINNERS :) )

K- now to my Long "Tiring" Week post....
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Who would have thought that taking care of Zach would be "so" tiring. When we said our vows..."for better or worse....sickness and in health" the preacher failed to mention the "whining" that comes along with your husband having knee surgery--HA! All jokes aside, I love taking care of him, I love being the one who he calls when he needs something and seeing the thanks in his eyes when I help him. He appreciates it and I love being able to nurture him; no matter how tiring it is.

So-for updates:

* Zach is still extremely sore, which the Dr. said since he "dug" around in there and his knee surgery was a little more intense than the "normal" that he would have quite a bit of pain, and boy does he! I feel so sorry for him, b/c he wakes up throughout the night and moans and groans in pain--it's painful watching your "Ever so strong" husband in pain. He had physical theraphy on Thursday; he didn't do anything, they just went over everything he will be doing come this week--he will go every Wednesday and Friday for a few weeks I'm sure. Next week he will go back to work, but he will be staying in the office and not driving like he normally does. Please continue to keep him in your prayers, healing wise he is doing wonderful, we just have to get through this pain that he is having.

*Mom is still doing great, she too is going through physical therapy and she hurts quite a bit after it's over. She is still walking on a walker, but very slowly...I am tremendously proud of her and think she is doing amazing. But if you could still pray for her and her pain that would be great :)

* 52 days till our very first appt with the fertility clinic--but again, whose really counting ;)

I have been getting alot of questions on multiple things---my faith, my favorites, suggestions, advice, advertisement, fundraisers, raffle, donations, ttc and fertility clinic... and several other subjects; so I think I am going to have another Q and A post, like I did in the past. So now is the time to ask me anything you want...you can put it in the comment section or send it to my email (which is on my right side bar).

Thank you again for those whom have helped my husband and I throughout this journey!! By prayers-by support-by donation-by friendship, you all are simply amazing!!! I know I say this every time I post something, esp. here lately but I am truly amazed and so grateful...and just "typing" thanks just doesn't seem like "enough"...I can't express my gratitude enough and I truly hope that you all know Zach and I are so very thankful for you. GOD IS AMAZING!!

{{don't forget to look at the below post to see what "YOU" could win this week.....}}
