I just took the time to look back over the past few weeks of blog entries and read through some of the things I was experiencing and thinking only a few short days ago. When I realize that one week ago I was still unable to pull myself up to a sitting position without assistance or lie comfortably in any position, I'm amazed at my progress is such a short time. Today I'm sleeping comfortably in my own bed, walking up and down the stairs easily, have not taken any pain killers in a long time, and am generally feeling like my old self again. If I weren't tiring so easily I would tend to forget that two weeks ago I was undergoing hours and hours of surgery. Is the human body not an amazing thing?
Right now I'm in awe of how amazing our bodies are and how intricately they work to keep us whole and healthy. I've always had a love/hate relationship with mine, wishing it could be slimmer and shapelier, hating the constant battle to keep weight off. But honestly, seeing how it's healing, and appreciating all that I can do with it now that I'm getting well - I think I'm humbled by one of God's most amazing creations. And if I have an ache or a pain here or there, I'm certainly not complaining...
