It is hard to believe that it is coming up on 2 weeks since I had my elbow surgery. God has been gracious and faithful (1 Cor. 1:9) throughout this whole process. I would have never imagined that I would hurt my elbow playing basketball, which would require me to need surgery. It really has been amazing how God has shown up through all of this. My club (CCC) gave me the option to get surgery in the States or in Poland. I felt the most comfortable coming back to the USA and getting surgery. I felt like I would be able to fully understand what was going on with my elbow. I am thankful that I did come back, because I found out the recovery will be a process. Lord willing I will start shooting in a few weeks, but then I will need some time to strengthen my muscles around the joint. My physical therapist said I am looking at probably a total of 2 months post-surgery for recovery.
As I said above, the Lord has taken care of me. The surgery went without a hitch, and so far rehab is going well. There are some days that can be frustrating, but I have to say that I am thankful for the health the Lord has given me. There are a lot of people who are in a lot more difficult situations than I am in. I am still able to walk, talk, breathe, etc. Once again I am reminded to be thankful to the Lord for the many blessings that He has bestowed on me.
This week is Mission's emphasis week at the church I have been going to the past few weeks. They have some awesome speakers coming in and some wonderful missionaries from around the world. I had the privilege of listening to a missionary today who serves in an area of the world that is predominantly Muslim. It was interesting to here him share how the Lord is at work in the midst of darkness. We all have an opportunity to make a difference. Are you choosing to make a difference for Christ?
Well, I am headed to go get some cardio in. I hope everyone has a great rest of your weekend and may the week ahead be one of many blessings for YOU!
I wanted to post a few pictures of my progress. Here is a picture of me right before surgery:
