Wendy had a low key, quiet day. She was groomed and pampered from head to toe by her sweet mama-nurse. Her mom washed, dried, and combed her hair, pedicured her feet, and helped her take a bath. She finally got to take a semi-normal bath with the help of a hand held shower nozzle that her Uncle Kenny installed for her. Wendy's entire grooming process took over two hours because she had to break for so many rests, as she is still in a lot of pain.

Wendy had her best and longest sleep yet, last night. Unfortunately, she woke up in a lot of pain this morning because she slept through her pain medicine doses. At this point she is asking for prayer, which is better for her body, sleep consistently or wake up and take pain medicine? She is perplexed over which is the lesser of two evils.

Wendy didn't see the boys today. She was exhausted from the previous busy and emotional day and all three of the Manzo men are now on antibiotics. It was better for everyone to take a day off. Micah was busy cleaning the house and hadn't gotten around to telling the boys that they wouldn't see their mommy today. As Micah cleaned the floors the boys played and scurried around at his feet. Skyler who usually plays well independently was following him around, carrying a letter puzzle. After awhile, Micah noticed he wasn't letting up and was actually trying to communicate something to him. Micah sat down with Skyler. Skyler took the letters from the puzzle and spelled out "M - O - M". As Wendy retold this story tonight she couldn't help but cry. Skyler is truly blossoming! She is excited to get to see them again tomorrow.

Wendy experienced severe hiccups today. She had three bouts of hiccups that lasted almost an hour each time. Please pray the hiccups don't come while she is sleeping and they are gone by tomorrow. By the end of the day her stomach and throat were really starting to hurt.

Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. Colossians 4:2
