I don't know how many of you readers are country musics fans but I am. I love it all....old country, new country, rock a billy country...you name I like it. My title is taken from the JoDee Messina song "I'm Alright". Tomorrow is my thirty day, one month post op. I am unsure where my weight is at as I have not stepped on the scale (need to figure out what the heck is wrong with it) so I can have an accurate weight. Let's recap, Had surgery April 15th, was home April 18th. Have not had any pain or problems since, well except the "Skittles" issue which I hope is being resolved. I went back to work last week and am doing well. Was a little tired the first two day but seem to be doing ok now. Have been introduced to foods again without a problem. I know many friends that have had some issues with GBS but I have not. I feel the best I have in years. Stairs seem to be easier to go up and down, I can bend over and grab my purse of the floor with ease, doing up shoes is much better, clothes fit that haven't in years. I am happier than I have been in years because I feel well, I have energy and I am encouraged ....as opposed to being discouraged all the time. When someone lives in defeat they have no energy or will power to pull themselves out of the mud....they are stuck right there...mud it dries and hardens and becomes like cement. Can you get out of cement? I can't ....having had GBS is like having a great big cement drill that have cracked the hold the cement has had on me. I am not stuck in the mud anymore because I am not defeated....I have hope and encouragement. There is progress and success. I know that many many people that I have spoken with that have also had the surgery say it is the best decision they have ever made even if they have had problems or set backs. I must say I agree. GBS is the best thing I have ever done! I do not regret any part of it. Just like this blog, I don't regret writing anything....whether it is me just venting, me being silly, or me sharing knowledge. I believe that everything has a time and a place and that someone somewhere is reading whatever I have written and it is speaking to them, to their need at that very moment. I don't even regret the flack that I have taken from some people or the off comments that are made to my face or behind my back. They all service a purpose! I would not be me without having something to push me in the right direction. Direction is an important thing...right, left, up, down ....which way? If we don't know the way we are going then we end up lost! I know my way....I am on the right road. Do you know your way? What road of life are you taking? Have you made a wrong turn? I have made several wrong turns throughout my life but the best thing is we can make a U turn and head back in the right direction! So when someone asks me "How I am doing" and I pause with a smile and say "Well, I guess I'm doing alrigh" it is because I know what and where I have come from and yes, I am doing alright!
