Two Days and Counting...

Guess what, friends? Wonder of wonders, miracle of miracles... I've now gone 2 days without a headache. I'm not quite sure what to do with myself.

I think part of it came because of a little prayer. You see, I had somehow scheduled quite a busy day on Sunday: PEC before church, then I really wanted to be at church for all three hours because I hadn't been for a couple of weeks and Sue, my Relief Society counselor, was out of town (on a much needed break, bless her heart!), and I didn't want to leave Emily to fend for herself. Plus I just miss all my church peeps. Then I had a visit scheduled and a surprise birthday party and home teachers.

Now I was willing to negotiate, I told God. Emily was at the ready in case I couldn't make PEC or the new member class at church. I was willing to leave Relief Society right after opening exercises. I could cut the visit short, or skip the party.

But guess what? I managed it. All of it. And it made me feel a bit successful.

That and I checked the messages on my landline. My spinal fluid is clear. No additional worries there. PHEW!

So yes, it's true, I haven't taken a tylenol or an advil since Friday. Although my head did buzz and swirl at the birthday party yesterday--let's just say there were a LOT of kids in a small-ish room hyped up on birthday cake. Oh boy.

Hey Jenny! Just want you to know that you are in all of our prayers. Hey I was wondering if I could get your phone number. My dad was looking for it and can't find it again. Sorry. My mom was cute and was going to comment on your blog to get your number, but every time she would try to comment on a blog it comes up in Japanese, and being as you probably don't read Japanese she was worried you wouldn't understand what it said! You can totally email me smilesalot18_80@hotmail.com
Know we love you! xoxo Lindsay Baird Rosander

Wow! and very cool! - the lack of headache thing and getting to have such a full Sunday. You may have to pace yourself for the rest of the week, but it sounds like it was a great day. Hopefully a sign of many good days to come. You continue to be amazing! Sending lots of love your way.

That's the BEST news I have heard in weeks! What a blessing! I am sure it has felt as wonderful as a beautiful spring day after a long, cold winter to not have headaches! I hope you have many more such days! ;o) I love you!

P.S. The Flat Jenny Project is up and running (literally), so if you want to link to the blog from your blog sometime to let your other friends know about it, that would be fun.
