13 Feb 2010 Hannah and I are in Texas
 |  Category: Hannah

And Tim is in Haiti. I’m glad that Hannah and I get to spend this week with my side of the family while Tim is gone. It doesn’t make this week easy, but it makes it better. It’s nice to have lots of help with Hannah. Especially since she started teething and is not doing well with that. The day we arrived in Texas I hurt my back trying to lift our big bag into the back of my friend’s vehicle. I was thinking the bag was pretty heavy, but didn’t think anything of it. It wasn’t until the middle of the next day that I was in a lot of pain. My back hurt with every small breath I took and every slight move I made. I called my OB and she wasn’t in the office, so I called our family doctor’s cell and left a message for him asking what I could do. He called me back soon after and talked to me about the options. Luckily there is a great doctor in my dad’s church that he was able to call and get a prescription for a little stronger Tylenol than we had and that was still okay for me to take with being pregnant.

My back is still hurting a little. Hannah didn’t have a fever today (as far as I know), at least she wasn’t acting as miserable as she was the other day. Tim has been able to contact me in one way or another at least once a day. It really helps me to follow him and the rest of the team on twitter. I’m missing him more and more each day. I thought I’d be distracted most of the time while here at my parent’s, but I can’t even count how many times I check my computer for twitter updates and look at people’s pictures hoping to see a glimpse of my husband for the day.

I can’t wait for Tim and us to fly back to Minneapolis on Wednesday and I get to hear his stories of this week. I’m thinking it might be a quiet car ride home though at Tim will still be processing everything he is seeing and learning while in Haiti. It’ll be wonderful to get to wrap my arms around him again and hold each other. I miss Tim like crazy and I know Hannah does too. It’ll be fun to see them reunite also.

I love you Tim and am proud of you for following God’s will for you this week. Be open to all that God has to teach you and open to all the ways he wants to use you to help those in need.

  1. I love you, too, wife for life! 🙂

  2. Praying for you this week, I hope you heal quickly, that sounds like it hurts! I know Josh is watching the Tim and the team closely as well, God has laid it on his heart to go since the quake and he is leaving with AIM in 5 weeks. Hang in there. 🙂

  3. Ashley, I’ll be praying for Josh when he goes and for you as you stay home with the boys.
