This is what Monday was like:

Bossy Smurf Works Out with Animal Muppet

We hadn’t started doing anything yet, I was just walking around to get in position.

Trainer D:  Your breathing is ALL wrong.

Me:  Seriously?!?!?  Get away from me.

Trainer D:  NO chest breathing.

 Later, in Coach R’s Neighborhood

Coach R:  How was your weekend?

Me: Other than the excruciating pain?

Coach R:  (chuckle)


A couple weeks ago, at home:

Me:  (taking my blood pressure bc it’s been too high lately and my PCP wanted a log)

Dad:  How is it?

Me:  [mumble mumble]

Dad:  See, if you just sit there and breathe deeply from your diaphragm, it will go down when you take it again.

Me and Mommy:  Ummmm….I don’t think you’re supposed to do it that way.

(Daddy just keeps on breathing deeply and taking his BP until he gets a number he likes)

I ❤ Recovery.  Seriously, I do – I’m not being facetious.  It’s often a complete riot, and I am fully cognizant of the fact that it’s a privilege to get better.

Still, I will say that the past several days have been rough . So today you get to look at this beautiful picture.  It lifts my spirits 🙂

  1. Yes. Recovery is no piece of cake. Just when you think that the pain is gone it starts all over again! But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ! He is faithful and strengthens us each time we need it, with an abundant dose of grace! — Ruthie Johnson

Comments, anyone? Thanks for saying "hi" :) (Sorry I can't reply all the time, but when I do the reply appears only on this blog unless I remember to reply via email.)
