I'd like to thank all of you for your cards, phone calls and well wishes! As many of you know, the procedure did not go as expected. It was WORSE than expected! And on top of that, it was not effective. The Dr. could not get the stimulator in the right position in order for me to determine if I could get any pain relief. Instead of my feet buzzing like the stimulator was supposed to do, my ribs and waist line were buzzing. The next step is to go to the Neurosurgeon and he will knock me out (Hallelujah!!) and go in and get rid of the adhesions that blocked the Dr. the first time around. That will be most likely some time in April or May at the latest. I'll keep you all posted, but in the meantime, I am healing up and feel much better Thank you all for your encouragement and support!.
I got a phone call from an old friend, who has lost a considerable amount of weight. She wants to begin the hard work of peeling back the layers in order to relearn some messages that have not served her well in her life! She said something that really stuck out to me. She said "I am ready to open myself up and expose my vulnerabilities in order to search for the answers."
Now that is a comment from someone who is serious about lifestyle change. Willingness. That is the word of the day, no, let's make that the word of the entire journey!! Willingness. I am fully convinced that when I am willing, . . . willing to ask the hard questions, willing to look at myself, willing to get connected again and to feel, and willing to define my own truth, an open and authentic life will follow!
Are you willing this week? Have a wonderful weekend ladies!
