Simple Things ~ Not so simple...

Feeling a bit better after having some pain medication in her system. ;)
I know this is not the typical choice of picture for Simple Things, but this was not a typical week.  My daughter Hannah, who is 15, woke up at about 2:30 Tuesday morning.  She was very sick.  She was in great pain and was vomiting horribly.  When we realized that there was nothing we could do to comfort her, my husband took her to the emergency room.  After a very long wait and a cat scan, we were told it was her appendix and that she would have to have surgery that day.  As you can imagine, we were all scared and relieved at the same time.  Even though it was a pretty common surgery, nobody wants to hear that their child is going to have to experience something like that.  However, we were very glad and thankful that the doctor diagnosed it right away and that it was nothing worse.  By 2:30 that afternoon, she was having her appendix removed.  About two hours later, we were on our way home.  It was like a whirlwind.
At the end of the day, my sweet daughter was asleep in her own bed.  She has been recovering nicely.  I keep looking back to that day and how fast it all happened.  She received several visitors that night.  Would you believe me if I told you that through this crazy, scary, quick experience we received several blessings?  God knows what they are and I'll keep them private for right now - but I just want to share that I am amazed. Simply amazed at God's provision and His timing.  Sometimes a not so simple situation turns out to be very simple after all. =)

Join Rebecca Cooper and many others on Sundays to share your Simple Things.


  1. I am so glad she is okay and recovered nicely! God is so good.

  2. So glad she is doing well. Hope God continues to keep His hand of healing on her.

  3. So glad she is on the mend. But that is a little crazy having her go home 2 hours after the surgery!


I'd love to hear your thoughts and get to know you, so leave a comment. Thanks for stopping by...
