They were both very excited to see my progress because they recognized things are healing. Seeing them smiling and encouraged lifted my spirits for sure.
Dawn is extremely interested in my new belly button and just thinks it is funny that they would make me a new one! She was wondering how they do it so I told her I would try to find her a YouTube video and we could watch it tomorrow.
I found the answers to those questions and feel pretty darn good about my recovery half way to six weeks. Why a change in perspective? How have I developed a new found patience with myself I didn't have yesterday? Well, I eventually found two YouTube videos of my surgery. The exact thing that I had done I watched being done to someone else, and I will tell you, I looked pretty good on day 1 now that I know what really happened while I was sleeping!
No more being hard on myself...we are going to make it, I will go walking again. I will be caught up on laundry some day and I will make my bed one day because I KNOW I won't be getting back into it until bedtime. That day is not today, and that is OKAY!
