Things are moving along...
Drugs are good. I am slowly getting better. I do my walks which should not be so impressive. They are 10 mins longs and I am way slower than the tortoise ever was. I show everyone that stops by my scar and wonder why I purchased two new bras last week. Yeah, let me just jump back into those! Ouch. Things that I learned in this part of my journey is that if you say you like a drug too much, they don't prescribe it to you. DARN! If you have a sensitivity to tape you should remember that before you leave tape on for seven days without skin protectant and then wonder why your skin aches and blisters. And finally, I am so glad that I didn't do both sides at the same time - how would I sleep? It is hard enough now sitting up in our chair in the living room or on one side in bed but only for a few hours at a time. It still hurts to cough, but worse to yawn. I do have my "pillow" that helps me do both. My aunt bought if for me and it says "Rockstar" on it. It is a pillow sized like her husband's when he went through lung surgery. Of course, his didn't say "Rockstar". That was just for me. I am finally getting through all my email, magazines, etc. and I finally got why I kept finding Elmo Bookmarks in some of my magazines - very funny Nanette!!!! So, I am doing well. Everyone has made it very easy for me to rest easy. I am going to rock the boat a little bit tomorrow. Tomorrow, Mason's preschool class has a special Mom's Day presentation and I can't miss that. So, tomorrow, I am going to put on mascara, do something simple with my hair, Karissa will pick me up and guard me from being tackled by my two boys and I will go listen to Mason sing to me with his class. I think that is worth a little set back, don't you? Happy Wednesday, Ang
