My big news of the week was supposed to be that I am recovering from giving final exams. Instead, my big news is that I'm recovering from being swiped by a hit-and-run driver. But I already wrote about that.
I'm actually recovering really quickly. I look terrible, because the black eye is spreading, which they say is normal. But the cut over my eye it Is healing just beautifully and I'll get the stitches out Wednesday or Thursday. In spite of many warnings that my arm would hurt so bad that I would get nauseous, I haven't really had any pain. And the only medication I'm taking is to get the inflammation down. In fact I walked to and from church Sunday, and it was really nice to be outside moving again. The Sunday school class was on pain and suffering, so I got to be the "show and tell"!
Okay, in other more pleasant news, my husband and N-son got to go together to the military ball posted by N-son's ROTC. They look good dressed up together don't they? Earlier in the week, my husband presented "The little red hen" in his Russian class. (He missed the final exam for that class, thanks to sitting in the hospital with me, and says this means that now he won't ever get into medical school.)
Y, our host daughter for two years, moved out to be in her own place, and J-son has been very happily moving all of his stuff into her old room. He loves arranging and rearranging things. He and N-son have been a huge help to me now that I'm down to one arm.
K-daughter has been gathering hats and coats, and she and her friends take them downtown with cookies and give them out to people who need them. I so admire her.
