Still need more time to recover

Wednesday, August 17, 2016

Since my hospitalization from heart attack, I've been in "prison" at home. Eased out of the house to grocery shop today: the task had fallen to my wife and grand baby since I've been in recovery. Must admit the starch was taken out of me quickly. Too much too soon. Everything seemed too heavy. However, glad I did it because it reminded me that I need more time to recover. Sometimes we need a "slap upside the head," as my mother would say. "A hard head makes a soft behind," she also would say. Now, I am sitting gaining some strength back. All is not over.

    Thank you all for your remarks. IMCONNIE JEAN, I'll keep your husband in prayer as I pray for all of us on this journey. Good to hear from your remarks that you DO understand that those close to us are in the struggle with us. Your understanding and your ability to allow him space to work through his issues is commendable. Love you much for that. It isn't easy being a caregiver! God go with all of you. emoticon emoticon

    I read this to my husband. He had open heart surgery 2 years ago. And emergency surgury for a G I bleed in April. He has experienced the same thing. But, it gets better.

    Yes recovering from surgery is a challenge.....this too shall pass & you will feel better for having taken recovery a day at a time. Get well, take care.
