Thursday Thanks Tank #93

Trying to do this while making sure none of the side effects
of my ear infection/rupture get in my way.

We'll see how this goes. I am thankful this week for:

My DP, who is amazingly strong in the face of adversity (or in this case, the face of a wife in excruciating pain -- something he's really never seen in 14 years of marriage). He stepped up to the plate and cared for me tirelessly, all while missing an entire day's work and being Mr. Mom.

My dear MIL, who calls to check on me and can even make me laugh when I can barely lift my head from the pillow. How I love this woman!

My precious girls, who felt better yesterday, but still needed to stay home to fully recouperate, and did so while taking care of their sickly mama. Thanks for the yogurt, the soup, the smiles, the hugs, and for watching the movie right in here at the computer
with me so I didn't have to get out of bed.

You. Yes, thank you for even taking the time to stop by this old place anymore. Thank you for your prayers, your encouragement, your emails, and your care for me. I am thankful for your presence in my life and that God has chosen to use this forum to allow our paths to cross.

I'll let you decide how and where you post your thanks today. Unfortunately one of the side effects of this whole ordeal is constant drainage from my ear.
I am going back to lie down and try to recover a little more gracefully.

On His Adventure . . . even now~
Love Pam

It's very encouraging to see this post today, Pam. I hope it means you're feeling a little better.

Kudos to your husband and children for taking such good care of you.

Oh Pam~
What a sweet list. You truly amaze me, as you are thankful so much even in the midst of not feeling well.

Pam -- Hunter had a raging ear infection too... I feel like I've narrowly missed one (although I did have an upper resp infection and bronchitis)... fun, fun! With ear infections, I have heard that Baush & Lomb (Sp?) has a prescription drop that numbs the ear (glory, hallelujah!) so maybe you can call the doctor for some???

In the mean time, get a thin wash cloth, mound some raw rice into it,if you have any smell-good essential oils, place a few drops on top of the rice, tie it off, heat in microwave for 10 seconds, take it out, feel it, and if its not too steaming hot, place it over your ear.

It worked to soothe Hunter... however, nothing would touch his pain!! But prayer works!! I'll keep you in my prayers, friend...

Oh Pam, didn't realize you were sick too!!!! I just finished my antibiotics today for strep and an ear infection, and I am home from school with my daughter who is sick today.
Can't believe you had such a brutal ear infection....what a bumner!

I too found moments to be thankful even in my agony.....God is good even during the tough times. Glad you are starting to feel a bit better.
Praying you will be back to full mommy duties soon!!!!!!!!
