Every day that I move farther away from surgery I feel exponentially better. You might be surprised to know that yesterday I went to the beach and Wal-Mart. Today I had a Doctors Appointment in the morning where he re-did my bandages and removed 2 of the drains. I was allowed to finally take a shower. I ran to the shower when we got home and I am a new person. I have never felt so good. My sister and I took the kids to see Toy Story 3 this afternoon and I am still feeling great. I promise I am getting a lot of rest and I am not overdoing it (don't yell at me Liz). I may have the 2 remaining drains out at the end of this week or the beginning of next week.

Yesterday was the 6 month mark from when I was diagnosed. So much has happened in 6 months and really six months is not long at all. I feel like my life was a dusty snow globe. Sitting on a shelf looking pretty. It wasn't until someone picked it up, shook all of the dust off, and made it snow that you could see its true beauty. Life needs a little dusting once in a while.

You are beautiful and amazing. I am so thankful to have you in my life. You are an example to me, and everyone who knows you - solely through your blog or in real life. I don't even know how to describe you anymore. Superwoman doesn't even begin. I don't think I've ever met anyone who could turn this as positive as you have, and you've "dusted off" a bunch of us too along the way. I do wish sometimes that I could sit in your skin for a little while and soak up some of the things you've learned and ways that you've changed. I've learned so much by being simply an observer of this journey you've been on... but I know it doesn't hold a candle to what shifts have gone on in your world. My dust is still pretty thick. Sorry for the long comment. You know how I get. ;-) I love you.
