I am 4 days post-op, and I had so many blessings today: First shower and new PJs, food by friends (beef stew for lunch, lasagna & garlic bread for dinner), surprise deliveries (a Christmas cactus, a basket of honey foods and remedies, flowers, a candle, cards) and friends reaching out with phone calls and texts.
I treasure the little things and take nothing for granted. God is so good to me. And - I really like my new body 🙌. I can’t believe this much is behind me. No matter what you are going through, YOU ARE STRONGER THAN YOU THINK YOU ARE.
I have to remind myself to walk and to rest. The pain I have had - until now - has all been associated with where the drains are coiled inside my body. But today’s pain has been sharp, shooting nerve pains up and down my spine. I’ve changed positions and continued my meds. Walking certainly helps. Still, the collective pain hasn’t been as bad as a c-section! I would do it all over again in a heartbeat.
At least it’s prime time for Hallmark, because what else do I have to do? 🤷♀️ He has kept me as His own, and I still am not shaken.♥️🙏
