It’s hard to believe that 2 weeks ago I was just getting home to recover from surgery. The weeks have flown by and the recovery has been quite amazing. It’s been a journey filled with happiness, love, wonderful friends and clients carrying about me, and strength.
Each day I watch my face come closer to looking and feeling like it’s mine again. I still have numbness and swelling along my neck and jaw line and around my cheekbones. Dr. Haddle explains that the cheekbone area is the last to go down. I still have tightness in my neck, so I don’t have complete range of motion, but it’s getting there. This morning I did a few seated yoga stretches to get myself moving. I do miss my yoga classes so much. Then, I went for my very first walk!!! WOOHOO!!! Green smoothie in hand. It was glorious! 45 minutes of pure bliss and nature! It felt so good to be outside in the fresh air and sun! Yes, I slathered my sunscreen on 🙂
I also had my acupuncture treatment this week and will have another one tomorrow. I really think it has helped the bruising go down. I will probably start posting 1-2 times a week now. Dr. Haddle and I are working on a date for the Part 2 presentation, so you can see the new me in person and ask all your questions about my journey. Look for updates on date and time for this event. Until then, I will continue to keep you posted on the blog.
