Hard Days

Day 6 Wednesday: prior to surgery I used a metaphor of cocooning with becoming a butterfly. With a metaphor there always is a yes and a no. I like the idea that one can live into a beautiful future. But the timing of how that happens is a bit different in real life.

I have been on oxygen until yesterday and today I am finding myself easily winded, which is normal but at this point in my recovery talking requires energy I am just starting to build up.

I am aware of how loved I am as my caretakers mostly seem to have heard of me. Today I began my Physical and Occupational Therapies even though breathing has harder than yesterday.

Somedays butterflies are essentially just worms hung up between two kites. Even on such a day I have felt your prayers lift me.
