I just didn't have anything interesting to share yesterday. Now we are gearing ahead for overnight company and open house for Shabbat. So likewise again, my mind is elsewhere. I really am glad this will be our last Shabbat on the JF. This is my least favorite time of the the fasting.
This morning I awoke with my daughter Naomi nuzzled into my chest for some morning snuggles. Those are very rare occasions for her. So that was very precious to me. As I woke, (however) I noticed a painful lump under my right arm. It seems to be an inflamed lymph node. It really is tender. I expect it is trying to process some of my detoxing and something is "backing up" in there. It really does hurt! :-( This was "the straw" i needed to actually start rebounding. I have been putting it off...but i know that it helps get the lymph node flushing...so I started with some mild "bouncing" today. I made it a point to move my arms in wide motions the whole time. (Like jumping jacks) I am going to try to hop on it again later, and a couple times tomorrow in the hopes to pass what ever it is in there. I am not sure how long it will take. I won't be doing it over Shabbat, but will get back to it on Sunday. If you feel compelled to pray for me in that way, I really would appreciate it.
Did I mention? Today was suppose to be Ben's last day on His week-long Juice Fast, but He said he would stick to it, through the end of my time with me. Isn't that sweet! He just turned his 7 day fast into a 12 day one for me!! How romantic! :-)
