Getting back to what I was able to do before the brain tumor has been one blessing after another.
Yesterday was a big day for me – used to be a normal day.
I read somewhere that everything we do should be celebrated; therefore, we should be thankful for everything – even the tiny things that seem like no brainers – things we assume will never go away.
I now realize there is nothing we can assume…as we don’t know anything for sure.
I went on a 20 minute walk around the part after I dropped Ian off. Ha – the “old me” would look at that and roll my eyes
I took Ian to Michael’s craft store for the first time since last August – before this I couldn’t go alone – just the thought of the store overwhelmed me…in all aspects.
In the past 4 months:
Walked with walker
Walked with Cane
Walked with brace
Walking on my own
Relearned to drive
Grocery store with just me and Ian
Can now do laundry – I could carry the baskets before because it threw my balance off
Load and unload the dishwasher – again the balance bit
Went to the mall
Again, all this stuff I used to do without once thinking these were huge blessing.
Now, I say thank you all day long for what I can do again.
