:-) I've had 2 exciting job offers, both part-time/work from home education positions, which is perfect while I continue to recover. I'm not sure both of them will work out, but I'm just thrilled about a writing project I've already started working on and I know if the consultant gig does/does not work out...then it was/was not meant to be. To be honest, I'm not sure I can handle both! But I'm relying on Him to show me the way and taking these leaps by faith, not by sight. <3
Last Friday I celebrated my 35th/1st birthday! It was a BIG one for me that's for sure. I feel so blessed to be surrounded by so much love. AND I am so thankful---for this life, for such a positive outcome, for a successful surgery, for the prayers and encouragement as I continue to recover.
I know I may look fine on the outside, but on the inside I'm still healing, physically and emotionally. I have constant aches and pains in my neck/shoulders, my incision continues to be very sensitive to the touch, making it hard to sleep, and I seem to get angry/upset over things that really aren't a very big deal in the big picture. I think some of it is the uncertainty of it all. Just praying it gets better with time. He continues to teach me patience, that's for sure!
Overall, the cardiologist is happy with my progress. I continue to work on my rehab exercises--I've worked up to 45 minutes on the treadmill--and I'm now looking forward to spring, our beach vacation, and an eventual opening of the pool!
