Hi again!

The last few weeks have been busy as usual with work and college… Continue reading Getting my fitness back
Hi out there!! Another day, another month into recovery. Exactly 4months to the day on the 23rd. Better and better each day and learning something new about recovery all the time.

Honey, I’m home!!! I know I’ve been off air with updates for the past while so it got me to thinking as to why.

I’ve reached it!! My magical 6-week mark where everything is meant to be back on track…… not that they were ever really off track. So, Friday came and so did my meeting with my consultant. I was excited to see him and ask all the questions. I can happily report I got the all clear,… Continue reading A not so magical milestone.
So, I know I’ve been absent for a week or so but really there hasn’t been a whole lot to report. I am now 5 weeks post op, things are going well.
