One Day At A Time...

Our greatest weakness lies in giving up.
 The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time..

It's been a month and almost five days since my first surgery, and just about 10
days since the second one.  Let's just say that in a month and five days I have had two 
surgeries.  Just when I thought I was feeling so much better I got a little surprised today when
after just a little physical work I was completely exhausted.  Yeah after bubble wrapping some
parts of a car I was finished.  Just had to sit down and do what I have been doing so much..relax

I was exhausted for the rest of the evening.  I have not talked to my parents nor sisters
since my thyroid surgery.  Being that I can't, but being tired and a little let's say not in
the best of spirits i wanted to hear my mom's voice and that of my sisters.  I talked to
one sister and to my mom.  Did not realize what a big effort it is.  Afterwards, I felt even
more drained and more exhausted.  I'm not used to being "sick" and it's not fun anymore.

Though we have not done much lately, we still had a good weekend.  Little relaxation and
a little outing made for some pleasant times.  It was nice to go out again just Arvid and I, just
like before, just like always.  can't wait for these days to be here again soon.  

For now I wish you all a good day.  Everyday I am getting stronger and stronger.
Feeling better and better.  I now have a new accessory on my neck.  A small scar.
I don't really mind.  I do feel as if my voice has changed a bit, but only time will tell.

It's Tuesday and we have the whole week to be productive and think positively. 
 That's my plan always, and sometimes it's a good idea to know your limitations.

Happy Tuesday friends.  Remember, life is a balancing act.

If you're going through hell keep going.
After the storm comes the calm...
