It's been a few weeks since I've updated here.
I continue to heal.
My good days far out number my bad ones
and we are counting our many blessings.
I still have pain but it is improving.
My stamina and energy are still no where near my "super mom" level
but slowly it is coming back.
I get frustrated and discouraged because I want to be totally healed.
Many women say it takes a whole year.
I of course didn't think that would apply to me!
Life is getting back to normal.
The house is back in our usual rhythm
with the exception of me resting nearly every afternoon.
I have helpers who come in a few days a week and
help me keep the kids entertained so I can rest.
The kids are settling in again and
everything is much more peaceful and relaxed.
Life is moving forward.
We celebrated Valentine's Day with all our co-op friends.
We also celebrated Drew's 7th birthday.
Matt and I went out and played darts and
went two step dancing Friday night.
I hurt a lot on Saturday but it was worth it!
One part of my healing has been a new addition.
Puppy love heals many things.
Her name is Daisy Blu and she is a basset hound puppy.
She has brought so much joy to our home.
She has been the perfect thing to flip a new page
in our lives and move beyond my cancer.
Thank you for all your continuing prayers
They are still greatly needed and appreciated.
Next surgery for the reconstruction is
I'm grateful my mom is coming down to
help care for all of us.
I'm already anxious about the surgery,
but it has to be done so forward we go.
Love and hugs to all.
