So I’m drinking a caffeinated soda right now. That’s a bit unhealthy for me. But I am home from the hospital on very minimal medications, and with all pain medications completely out of my system. I have to wait till tomorrow to exercise much because the line that has been my arm went right up into my heart and if the site were to begin to bleed, it probably wouldn’t stop. But after a day things have usually resolved and I can start lifting weights and running (or walking for starters) again. And I can start my Tai Chi and Karate classes again. I’ve already called in to tell them to expect me soon at my “dojo” though we don’t call it that.
Pretty soon my dad and I will go get some lunch.
But best of all, I’ve really, actually, seriously started my novel. I started it last night, and have been working on it for an hour or so now when I decided to take a quick break to get today’s post started.
Mostly that’s all I have to say, except another “thank you” to my family, friends, and all the medical staff who have worked so hard to get me back to the place where I am now. It’s been a long couple months, and I’m extremely grateful for everything you’ve done for me.
I am, in fact, as my post on facebook today said, “awash in gratitude”.
Also, if you’ve never listed to Florence and The Machine’s song “Shake It Out”, you should. It’ll put you right where I’m at now.
Peace to you,
