Girls Write Out
Thursday, September 06, 2012
So good to be home and mending. Thank you for your prayers!! I get my staples out today. Hubby tried to come at me with a staple remover, but I ran--well, okay, I walked really fast. Can you believe the doctor actually said hubby could remove my staples? Unless we're talking about staples as food, it ain't gonna happen. I love my husband dearly, but please, let's save the medical procedures for the health professionals.

Other than that, life has been fairly calm around our house this week. It's been hard for me to read through the fog, but looking forward to reading Colleen's "Rosemary Cottage" (not yet released) soon!!

Oh, I almost forgot to tell you! I went to a Qigong class while at the hospital. It's sort of like Yoga in slow motion.  You move very slow, and learn important breathing techniques. I don't get into the New Age thing at all, but I like learning about how to help my body cope through the stresses of life, you know?  I bought a CD of it so I can continue after my staples are out. :)

So have you ever tried a class like that? Pilates? Yoga? Does any of that work for you? I really want something that isn't so much strenuous as it is breathing new life, hope and encouragement into my body. Make sense? What does that for you? Chocolate? Starbucks? Pilates? Pictures of Matthew McConaughey? Okay, not sure where that one came from . . . ;-)

P.S. LOVE Kristin's new book cover!!  Can't wait to read it, K!!

I'm happy you're home and doing well! I haven't taken formal classes for anything like yoga or pilates but I've done some at home at like it. There's also tai chi, never tried it.

My dr had me do biofeedback. I went to a practioner for that but am now doing it on my own with the Heartmath emwave system

I LOVE that picture!!! You look so "winning" and like you've overcome it all! Tai Chi is very popular here in the parks. I've also seen people worshiping at trees, but that's another California story. I love Yoga. It's very relaxing and helps me with balance. I do it on the Wii so I don't have to fall in front of people. : ) YAY, you're home. Keep that man away from your staples!

Diann! You look wonderful! My editor told me to do Qigong when I developed fibromyalgia symptoms, and I did it for a while, but overdid, then got bored and wanted to do more, and pulled something. I wish typing was considered exercise!

I can definitely understand where the Matthew McConaughey thought came from! Glad you're home and doing better!

So glad you're home! And I'm with you on husbands turning medical. Although my son tok his own stitches out recently. He'd badly sliced a finger across the knuckle while prepping brisket. He's a chef.

After the number of days were up for the stitches to remain in, he was too busy to go to the doctor's so he took them out himself. Come to think of it, he's been doing that all his life. When he was 7 months old, he smacked himself in the mouth with his playpen, and nearly lost a tooth. The doc put 2 stitches in his gum to hold it in. Two days later they were gone. And they weren't the dissolving kind. LOL

David Tennant, or Richard Dean Anderson perhaps ... LOL I do not do Pilates or any of that. I have done the exercises on the Wii thing in the past but had to discontinue when I hurt my knee and now I am larger and cannot move in those ways!

Also, I love that picture! I hope this last surgery did the trick for you. You have handled your troubles with such grace and faith. I'm happy you are home and enjoying life!
