Things change

4 years ago


Last week at this time I was in an operating room. 
Guess what I did today?


I couldn't have won a marathon, but I did go out and walk today. I know this is a small accomplishment, but it is an accomplishment non-the-less. I loved walking before my surgery and I am sure I will love walking again. I didn't love it today. My bra kept rubbing on one of my scars  and I felt like I had to hold my belly the whole time or my intestines were going to fall out on the ground. Okay it wasn't that bad, but I did feel a little uneasy.  I walked at a fairly slow pace and only walked about a half a mile, but I WALKED!!!!
