So I've been thinking a lot this past week, about a lot of things. I was feeling a little stressed, weighed down and really busy. Then a week ago I heard the news about Robert and everything changed. Why? Because my perspective changed. Suddenly the things that had seemed hard and heavy in my life didn't look like such a big deal anymore, because my husband wasn't in the hospital fighting for life! One of my favorite talks from conference this past October was Pres. Monson's talk titled Finding Joy in the Journey. My favorite quote from that talk is:
*Robert is doing well today. He is still having some pain, but don't you worry--he was sent home with a prescription for that. His last test in the hospital showed that the C-diff was gone, but he is still an antibiotic for that too (RobDob and his doctors show now mercy for villians like C-diff, even when you get the TKO--just keep kicking the guy while he's down and make sure he stays down!) Robert is loving his solid foods. While on a liquid diet for 48 hours in the hospital he was heard to say, "no one should be made to eat only jello and popsicles!" His favorite food of the day was waffles dipped in syrup (Robdob dips all his breakfast foods, so they don't get soggy!) He is happy to be home and is resting up and taking it easy!
