How many chances do you get?

Thursday, June 28, 2012

I'm back! Lately I have been feeling lousy - since I got blood clots in my lungs a couple of weeks ago. Coumadin is supposed to keep my blood thin enough so I don't get more but the clots make you pretty weak for awhile.
The only thing that let me know I was no ok was shortness of breath. Scary!
I'm looking at things again - how many chances do you get? Everyday you wake up I guess is a chance to make a change.
Walking is back in my life - as long as I can breath anyway. I go when it's cool and enjoy. I don't walk quite as far and slower but at least I can do it.
Putting this down is pretty therapeutic and gives me a lift. So I'll be doing this and trying to remember that I got one more day and I'm thankful for it.
