July 10th update

I just wanted to do a quick update. I came home yesterday. No news today. That is my good news. I slept pretty good. I am not having any pain so I haven't had any pain medicine since Tuesday night. They sent me home with some but I haven't needed any. They also sent me home with steroids to tapper off of. I really don't like them and have been looking forward to being off them. I still have a few more doses but should be done with those by Saturday. The only symptom is a tight neck. With all the stitching and staples it is tight. So I hold my head more still and funny. Mom says I probably need to work on moving it more. Which until today I hadn't even thought about. I was worried when I move my neck it would hurt but it hasn't just tights. So adjusting to that movability. I get a little winded when I get up and move around alot. So hopefully the energy will come back quickly. I am thinking the hardest thing is the no driving for two weeks. I think they do that because of the pain medicine and aren't sure about balance. I have been fine in the balance no problems there. So I see Dr. Fewle on the 22nd and the way it looks like I should be cleared from everything from him. I am no doctor but I feel great.

I just wanted to let you know that I am truly blessed by my Father in Heaven. There are and were so many miracles and blessings that have come from this. I am thankful for the opportunity to learn, and I hope to grow. Also to be able to see so many kind and helpful people. Thank you for your kind words, thoughts, prayers and help. Our family is very grateful for all who have helped and are helping us. We can never repay all the kindness so thank you.

I am happy to hear that you are home and feeling relatively well. Maybe the Dr. said you couldn't drive for two weeks because it was the only way to keep you off your feet :)Thank you for your sweet testimony.

I'm so happy that you are home and feeling pretty good. It's amazing to me that you had BRAIN SURGERY 4 days ago, and you are not needing any pain meds! You are simply amazing Rochelle.

Rochelle,
Thank you for your positive outlook on everything you have gone through. Watching you endure through your trials has helped me to endure through mine. You are so strong and you don't realize how much your strength helps me. Heavenly Father is so good to us. He gives us major trials, but at the same time he gives us an outpouring of love. It is so true that trials strengthen our testimonies. I'm so glad that you are doing so well.

I've been gone for the past week and the very first thing I did when I got home was check your blog to see how your doing and I'm so thrilled that you're doing so well! Not that I expected anything else, but I think it's fantastic that you're feeling good. Be sure to get lots of rest and let the rest of us serve you.

As always, you are amazing!

I am so glad that these last few weeks, let alone the last few years have gone as good as they have. I just wanted to say Hi and welcome home. My wife Anne Blogs about 3 times a day...so I know what is going on in the Blogging World...I enjoy being able to see what your family is up to and how the battle is going. Keep up the good work.

Just checked in after many months and did a lot of catch up reading. I am continually amazed by you Rochelle and your staples do look pretty cool. Anyway, your positivity is phenomenal and your testimony is so strong. Despite some serious trials you haven't even missed a beat. What a blessing you are to your children and Ryan (as they are to you) and an example of how to live every day for all of us. Thank you.
