Greetings all! God willing and all continues to go well, this will be my last health-related post for awhile. The eight-week mark is the point at which my doctors expected I would return to work, and that’s just about spot on. I’ve been back at the tax office part-time for a couple of weeks, and will be returning to the music ministry at Carnegie Presby this Sunday. Computer training is pretty slow this time of year so I don’t expect to be doing much teaching in Nov/Dec (which is fine by me!) But there are already irons in the fire for upcoming work in 2013 at both the local community college and with a longstanding private client.
On the whole I feel fairly normal most of the time these days. I still get tired easily but the afternoon nap is no longer obligatory. I still can’t run a comb through my hair without hitting some tender spots, and I’m still sleeping with my head propped WAY up so I don’t roll over onto the suture locations, but other than that I am pain-free. What should be my final follow-up doctor’s appointment is coming up on Tuesday… will post an update only if the all-clear is not given.
I am looking forward to using my remaining free time in 2012 to pop in at Trinity for some visits, to spend time with friends, to find and join a new church home, to get back onto a modified diet-and-exercise program (I’ve gained a good bit of weight!), and to do some re-prioritizing.
Sooooo… moving forward, I’ll be returning this blog to the primary purpose of exploring faith-related themes. For those of you who have been following my posts through this adventure, thank you for keeping me company, and thank you for your prayers.
