Healing and recovery

Hello everyone,

I am healing - all my lovely bruises are turning a delightful yellow and I can breathe deeply again.  I have taken full advantage of the opportunity to rest - something I don't do well. With the help and insistence of my lovely family I have stayed mostly in bed, reading, watching TV and sleeping.  I am beginning to feel that I can tackle life again - slowly

It is amazing that enforced rest is so difficult for me. I love being active and find that I feel guilty when I am not up and about working.

So the update is that I am showered and up for a few hours today - under strict supervision.  Thank you for the lovely emails and kind wishes.

It was great to see you walking down the garden to visit Dad and I, as well as soaking up the beautiful sun that was out in force today. Don't over do it now just because you think that you are feeling much better. Although it was key hole surgery, there is still lots that need healing underneath the bruises.

Ditto what your mom said, mind you I didn't see you walking down the garden. :-) I'm glad to hear that you're well on your way to recovery, take your time and don't push it. I'm a lot like you are and keep on pushing and pushing, I can totally relate and I detest saying this but we're not getting any younger. Our bodies need adequate time to heal which you're well aware of. The work and renos won't go anywhere, so try the best you can to take it easy!

Have a fantastic day my friend and you as well Dorothy!
