I haven't sat down to blog...because I am ALIVE...and feel ALIVE...and I am cherishing every moment. I am completely trying to make up for lost time. I am still very weak but am gaining strength each day. The girls and I are so excited to have some time together this week with no school...and I am actually excited to clean, bake, play, and just do what moms and daughters usually do. I can't wait!
I had an appointment last week with my local surgeon and got good news. It doesn't look like I am going to need another surgery to place another drain for my bowel perforation. I have gained weight (which was what they wanted...), I am feeling stronger, and it seems like it is almost healed. He was thrilled with my progress. That was the last thing that was hanging over me right now. The open incision on my abdomen is also closing off, so it seems like I can now move forward. I was SO relieved!
necklaces that reflect other things as well (other cancers, autism, hobbies,etc.) and I love what she made for me.
