This morning I awaken not as fatigued as yesterday. I have some tightness in my back shoulders and neck but not pain. I will spend some time stretching today. We will have a pretty day and I will try to walk at the Pell City walking track today however not run or push myself, just move and unlock muscles.
I got my steps in so I am still on my streak since June 1, 2013 when I got my fit bit 10,000 or more steps a day. I have walked 239.1 total miles to date and 697.207 steps. I really like having this program that keeps up with my totals. Especially when I am tired. It reminds me how much I've done to get here and that I CAN do it. I am still excited about this weekend official race just still recovering from the unofficial 5 k last weekend!
I see my surgeon this Friday, if they don't reschedule me again, and will talk to him about the possible internal hernia. It's more obvious as I loose weight. At three months out I felt something in the area but it was not obvious as I still had a lot of swelling from the liver surgery complications. I was open from sternum to belly button for 5 days before they could close me. I am concerned, but I am trying not to worry if you can understand this. I have no pain but it's obviously a problem. I am wearing shape wear as it so obviously sticks up in that area of my abdomen. (kinda looks like a third boob under my right one, just under the rib cage). It distends and hardens when I am digesting foods after I have eaten. It is generally softer and less swollen when I awaken. I am also wearing a binding when I run walk to not jar or have it bouncing around getting worse. We shall see what he says Friday. Say a little extra prayer for me not to worry cause GOD'S GOT THIS!
