Why Ive been Missing

Sunday, January 12, 2014

Ive been in the hospital for over a month from a bad seizure from my clotting disorder, was on life support for 10 days I broke my Nose and Broke C6-C7 in my neck and Bled for over an hour- they had to attach C5 C6 C7 then rest of the time on ICU floor, I was on alot pain Meds and no idea what was going on.
I spent 2 weeks in rehab I have alot weakness and getting home care Starting tomorrow
I feel Depressed, I was walking 2 miles- now on a walker, I cant have any more falls for a year and must wear this collar, after three months its 2hrs on 1 hour off
I know Im Blessed to be alive, breathing on my own and not paralyzed

My weight was up 222lbs (something clearly wrong)and its down to 205.6

Im hoping to support you all and write me any time you need some extra love, Ive missed you all

All Exercise must be done sitting for safety when not assisted by therapist, which gets done 3 times a week

    My prayers are with you. I am so, so glad, that you are on the path to recovery. One little step at a time awaits you. Also, you are forced to have time off to do meditation and imagery time like our SP guy, Chris. He talks about it in the latest radio show.

    Melanie- I was just talking to my sister June ( EmmaCory) on the phone and she told me about your blog. I am so sorry to hear about your health challenges. You have so much work ahead of you-remember to take it in small steps and a day at a time. Don't focus on how long and how far you need to go for recovery. Stay focused and celebrate any small improvement. This is a detour in your health journey. It can still lead to wellness. I will be actively praying for you! Hugs, Sue emoticon
