Thank you again. Today is post op day 4 and I am feeling much MUCH better. My stomach is still a little tight but other than that I think I am
"healing" in more ways than one.
I don't plan on taking any pain meds today and If I do will just take some advil or something. I want to be stronger and physically be able to do
some things around the house today. Be able to look at my family with a smile.
I lost a step son to Leukemia in 1999. He struggled with pain for nearly five years and ultimately lost his life. I never thought I would "feel"
that type of pain again but this experience made me think about him a lot. The pain he went through for so many years is nothing compared to what I
went through and for that I am saddened but also grateful. I feel as though he was watching over all of us Tuesday night. He was still being a good
big brother and still watching over me. I felt him.
My boyfriend and I talked more the past few nights and I'm feeling good about the feelings coming out and us being able to talk about it without any
anger towards one another.
I'm so appreciative to have a place like ATS where I can bring an issue such as this one and get the feedback I need to "heal". I thank you... all
of you for reaching out to me and taking the time out of your day to say words that can not only make me smile but help me heal.
I love it.... and love you all! xoxox
