Not So Ordinary, Ordinary

     A nice weekend spent with my guys. A little bit of shopping, a movie and relaxing at home watching a football game and being warmed by the crackling  fire in the fireplace. Sounds pretty ordinary. Something that a lot of us would do on any weekend. We have done this many weekends before too. What is different now? Now our family has made it through one heck of a tough few months. A something simple turned into emergency surgery and fortunate to be alive event for my husband. A routine doctors appointment turned to a consult with a specialist, to emergency surgery 4 days after the consultation appointment. We were blessed in so many ways during this time. My husbands doctor happened to be friends with a specialist surgeon who is the best in the U.S. and Europe at what he does along with the medical team that works with him and the hospital. My husbands recovery and healing process went quicker then expected and he healed leaps and bounds beyond what the doctors had anticipated or expected. An ordinary weekend spent enjoying being with each other. Ordinary us doing ordinary stuff. So blessed  and thankful to be doing the ordinary things with my guys.
