progress I can see.

The last time Sean and I went out, out it was on April 2nd. I was feeling good that day and we decided to have a date night. It was the first time I was going to be heading out without my compression stocking on my left leg as my doctor advised that when I do special things and would rather not wear my stocking it was OK for a few hours. Well I tried that on April 2nd and after about 2 hours my leg began to swell & I began to feel discomfort and we headed home immediately. I was a bit bummed thinking that I was never going to be myself again and thinking of all the outfits I was not going to be able to wear. I snapped out of it but I thought it.


I’ve kept my stocking on for every event ever since. But Saturday night we did a little trial run to see how my body is now. And I’m happy to report that I was able to go 2 1/2 hours without my leg swelling. But you best believe that as soon as we got home I put it right on and even tried to go to sleep with it. That didn't go as planned but you know, one can never be too careful.


But that right there is progress that I can actually see and guys, it feels pretty good.

The body is an amazing thing! It wants to bounce back so you will get there. Love that casual yet kind of dressy dress.

Lurker here. While I haven't had any health problems as scary as yours, I've had a few smaller ones and I know how great it is to reach a point where you finally can see that things are improving. It is a reminder that we can get through the tough times... it might take a while, but the human spirit is pretty darn resilient.

You look beautiful, and your body is healing better and better each week. You're able to go to the gym, and go to work, etc. God is amazing, and you're amazing for not giving up.
