Well, I'm up and around, just not for very long at a time. I walk the kids "loop" and probley need to get outside today for a walk. My getting in and out of bed could be very comical (if you were mean enough to laugh)! My biggest challenge of the day is getting my pills down, which can be very painful....showing me I'm not anywhere near ready to even eat soft foods. I'm loving the jello, broth, juice and Popsicle's...since that's all I'm allowed to eat.Hope-fully next week I'll graduate to other liquids.
The whole time I was in the hospital I just kept thinking about what a little thing I was going through compared to so many people. I've found I'm alittle whinnier as I get older, my pain thresh hold is lower. I couldn't help but think of my sweet Becky and how brave she was through all her stuff. And the children, their amazing.
Tomarrow it'll be a year since Becky died.(Big Sigh) So many changes. I know part of me still hasn't totally accepted that she's dead. I'll walk by her picture, and feel such a need to touch her. I'm so proud of everyone as they've plunged through this difficult year.
Half way through the year I read a wonderful saying that really helped me . It said, "Don't let your problems define who you are."
There are so many people I look up to that take this saying to heart. It helped me put a smile on my face.
