Mom update: She came through the procedure with FLYING colors! So relieved! She has some chest discomfort from the incision, but that is all normal and will go away as the wound heals and as she recovers. She is currently in cardiac rehab, and it is unknown how long she will have to stay there. She would like to be home now, but that will be contingent on how quickly she progresses in her PT.
Thank you for all the wonderfully sweet comments and well wishes. They helped so much, trust me!
Denver. Oh my, what a whirlwind! It was so much fun, it went by too quickly and I cannot believe it is all over. I have more thoughts on it, but right now, my brain is fried. I went.
I saw my friends and my people.
I hugged a lot.
And it was wonderful. All of it.
It has been a TOUGH few weeks, as you all know.
So right now, I will leave you with some photos of truly wonderful people, as well as my WI post Fitbloggin.
Alan, aka Sweating It Off. You'll never meet a more upstanding, sweet & generally classy guy than him.
Jill, Tracy and I. When Jill walked into the hotel, I practically tackled her NFL style. Way to keep it classy, Kel. But in my defence, I was super excited to see her. And no yellow flags were thrown nor personal fouls assessed. So, there's that.
Tomorrow, I start my fitness chapter: CrossFit. Yup, I'm drinking the CrossFit Koolaid. I'm a little nervous about it, but I'm not super worried. I'll get to the box early, talk to the coach, explain my arthritic knee, and just have faith that it will be a great experience. I'm going in with an open mind and excitement.
I'm ready to get stronger, fitter, and leaner. :-)
Back with more later. Have a great one!
