I love the movie Beauty and the Beast. Belle is my favorite character and the several times we've been to Disney, I get my picture taken with her. I think at first it was her love of reading that drew me in. Anyway, in the movie is a song Human Again (you can see it here if you aren't familiar with it
Anyway, today that is how I feel. Like I'll be human again and back to my old self sooner rather than later. Which may seem strange, especially after yesterday's post. I know, I know. But yesterday afternoon they removed my drains (which by the way does NOT feel just like pulling a baindaid off thank you very much). And oh my goodness. What a difference that has made.
Granted it's not like someone waved a magic wand and now everything is back to normal. But things are so much better. So much so we are dropping down to a less powerful pain medicine tonight (please cross your fingers it works). My arm movement is still limited. I still am not allowed to lift more than 5 pounds - though honestly 5 pounds seems like too much to me at this point. I have a DVD of arm exercises to start working on now. And a visit with a physical therapist soon.
But today, even though it's technically gloomy and rainy outside, I can feel the sun behind the clouds. I know it's there, waiting to shine down. It doesn't seem so far away and hidden anymore. And what a wonderful feeling that is to me right now.
In other news, my baby sister graduates from high school today. I'm so amazingly proud of her. She is truly amazing, even though she doesn't always believe that. And it's killing me that I'm not able to go to her graduation, but I'm there in spirit and just wanted to brag to all of you about how awesome she is!!!
