Keeping It Real

I usually avoid having pictures taken (more or less posted!) of myself when I am at my sickest or when I don't have any make-up on. I decided to 'keep it real'. So I had Mom take a picture of me in my 'new state of being'. After all, I'm supposed to be sharing my experience authentically right?

I'm hoping, now that my arm is starting to move a little more easily that I'll be able to work on blogs in bits and pieces to update on how things are going. It's been difficult to find any energy beyond medical 'stuff' and the need to rest.

In the meantime, I think this photo pretty much sums up the first week on IV antibiotics and the recovery from surgery.

As ever, thank you for your emails, cards, flowers and most of all love and prayers.
