Two weeks post surgery and I am beginning to feel more like "me."Not quite ready to workout yet, but I claim a small victory in not needing to take a nap every 4 hours like a newborn. lol Although I will be able to return to work on Thursday, I know that it will take another 4 weeks before I can take a spin class so for now walking has become my means of exercise. And it will be at least another 6 weeks before I can work on my core....which I might add is looking pretty pitiful at this time but when I think of the alternative- that cyst growing on my pancreas and possibly becoming cancerous working to get my fitness back becomes such a small thing by comparison.
So here I sit on the Monday after Thanksgiving , being the most thankful that I have ever been in 58 years. Thankful to God for continuing to nudge me that something WAS truly wrong with me , when doctors kept telling me that the pain I felt was nothing, thankful that the problem was resolved before it become terminal and thankful that I will have time to spend time with those I love and to do all those things that I was "waiting" to do.
