On the Mend

January 8, 2010 Sarah Coggins

It’s been a challenging week. The surgery was very successful. The pathology report came back as a noncancerous tumor. I very thankful for that and that the entire mass is officially gone.

I spent 2 nights in the hospital. Although it felt like a week. It was nice to return home on Wednesday afternoon.

I’m following doctor’s orders to get up and move around some throughout the day, but also being careful not to push myself too hard. I only allow myself to go upstairs twice a day and then stay for a while. Stairs and getting in & out of bed are my biggest challenges.

I am loving the opportunity to hold & cuddle my little boy again. I miss being able to pick him up. That needs to wait a few more days, but at least I can get to him and comfort him some now. I just have to have Trent or my mom hand him to me.

I am thankful for all the help Trent & my mom have provided to Dylan & me. I am thankful for all the wonderful prayers and words of encouragement I have received.

    I'm glad you are recovering and just take it easy because you don't want to prolong recovery.
