Wow, it's been a long time since I wrote. I had surgery, almost recovered, left the state and returned, had another CT scan, and took on a babysitting job all since I last wrote.
Whew! My hernia repair surgery went well in and of itself, recovery from it however, has been a huge test on my patience, emotional strength, pain threshold, and more. In other words, it's been tough. I had so much more pain than I thought I would. I missed the whole week that Kaili was home for Spring Break.
I was talking to my brother Jeremy a week after surgery and he really wanted me to come down to texas during April while our Dad was there visiting and thought it would be a good break for me. So I talked to John and before I know it we were buying my ticket (Damon went on my companion fare), and we had reservations for Texas.
When we left I was still very sore but Damon was the best little traveler and helper. Texas was the best thing for me at that time. I got to be with family, get lots of sunshine, do lots of relaxing and even some fun stuff.
I needed that time for healing as well as emotional relaxation, as a few days before I left I had a CT scan and the results were not great. The Doctor told me that the lesions were showing in my lungs again. This was the Worst news for me and John! We were hoping for more time...more clear CT scans.
Now I am researching and researching more about diet and the power of the body to heal itself. I wish I could go back 5 yrs ago and know what I know now. Maybe then I wouldn't be where I am today. Who knows...the books I have read would say so, but many others would say not.
If any of my readers has any good books to recommend or ideas to share I would take them. Any success stories to share?
Next post....pictures of Texas!
