Feeling BETTER

Monday, December 02, 2013

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.

    So glad, indeed that you are on the mend. It does put things in perspective doesn't it, you worded it beautifully. Isn't it something how we intrinsically know there is a problem inside of us, good for you for standing strong against the doctors and not taking their diagnosis of 'its nothing' and going home. God does let us know, what a blessing. Godspeed on your recovery and new priorities. So happy for you!
