Journey with Friends – Week 48

04 Dec

Welcome my friends to our weekly issue of Journey with Friends.  This is a time that we come together for support, for encouragement, for fellowship – all with one single goal in mind – to live better.  Welcome to our journey to share our goals and our accomplishments and our disappointments and frustrations.

Together we can do this!

Sunday, November 26, 2017 –  It finally got here.  The day before I return back to work.  I thought I was ready until my mom called.  She couldn’t breathe.  It was one of those moments that life stops revolving and you go into action mode.  Rushed her to the hospital where they did all kinds of tests and kept her overnight.  At this moment, we still don’t know much but it looks like it’s going in the direction of some type of COPD.  Hopefully we will know more tomorrow.  Miles Moved: 0.13

Monday, November 27, 2017 –  Mom is still in the hospital having tests done and today was my first day back to work.  Talk about a double whammy!  But things went well with work.  I’m slowly trying to ease back into work.  And with mom being in the hospital, I’m trying to take care of her house/anipals as well as her at the hospital. Breathe in/out.. right?  Miles Moved: 1.33

Tuesday, November 28, 2017 –  YAY mom came home today.  Went to pick her up from the hospital, took her home and then did some errands for her to the pharmacy and store.  Miles Moved: 1.56

Wednesday, November 29, 2017 –  Today was a short day for me.  I had to take a half day to go home and get some rest.  I think things were piling too much on me trying to recuperate myself.  Miles Moved: 1.00

Thursday, November 30, 2017 –   Things are somewhat back to normal at home with mom. She is trying to get plenty of rest and take it easy for a while.  My healing is going to take time.  My right breast looks beautiful but the left breast is slowly taking its time to catch up.  But I have to keep in mind that the left breast had a lot of work done with it (it had two lumps removed as well as the reduction/life).  Miles Moved: 0.90

Friday, December 1, 2017 –  Thank goodness for Friday!!  I’m so not cooking tonight.  We are eating out and then I’m coming home to get me some rest.  Hopefully this weekend will involve lots of rest as well.  I can tell it was a lot to come back to work this week but I’m trying to keep myself together with work vs rest.  Miles Moved: 1.38

Saturday, December 2, 2017 –   Rest sweet rest never sounded so good!  Exercise walking has been postponed until January 2018 to give my breasts more time to heal.  I do think that’s an excellent idea.  Miles Moved: 0.18

Thoughts for the week:  Healing from my surgery is on-going.  It’s going to be a bit.  I was warned about that.  It could take six months to a year for my breasts to look like ‘breasts’.  But that’s okay.  Even at this stage, they are lovely to me.    

This week walked: 6.48

TOTAL 2017 Miles:  517.56

 ❤ small goals turn into big accomplishments ❤

      aaww thanks sweet friend. I just got off the phone with the doctor’s office. They say I am having spitting sutures. Sounds lovely doesn’t it? LOL. Hopefully it will straighten itself out. If not, I will go back to the doctors office. And thank goodness mom is home. Now to get her better ❤

      You are right. It does and it seems like this one will take a bit. I’m trying to slow myself and be nice to me by not rushing things for sure ❤

    Glad you had a half-day mid-week (even if it wasn’t planned). Healing goes slow so you have to keep in touch with Ms. Left to make sure she doesn’t lag behind. Tell her she has 10 months to shape up! So sorry about your Mom. That drama didn’t help but I’m glad she’s ok. Hope that it’s something that is easily taken care of.

      Thank you sweet friend ((HUGS)). Hopefully me and mom both will get better in time. I’m trying to help her as much as I can. And Ms. Left better straighten up soon – LOL. ❤

    Well Auntie June,
    YOU DID IT! YOU GO GIRL! And yes, you need rest. Mama reads your posts to me, so it’s my turn to comment. You had major surgery and two scares..the lumps and your Mother. Sure hope you slept all weekend and were extra good to yourself. Much Love, Fiona

      aaww thanks sweet friend. I did get rest this past weekend and this coming weekend I plan on doing the same. Healing will take time and I’m trying to take care of me as much as I can for sure. Love you ❤

      aaww thanks sweet friend. I’m trying my best to get rest. Thankfully mom is home now. That eases the stress off a bit. Trying to get both of us to heal now is good. You take care of you too sweet friend ❤

    Definitely think pacing yourself is paramount here June! Any serious surgery I’ve had took a good 3 months to ease back into my life…
    And you having the emergency with your Mother probably overdid your system. Just take things one day at a time….in a few months you will be all better! (I know it is hard to slow down; I learned the hard way!)
