My niece, Stephanie, is trying to make arrangements to fly in from North Carolina to help me out. That's so sweet of her. She's busy with 4 girls under the age of 8, but she's willing to come spend 10 days with me! She will bring her 20 month old, and possibly the 8 year old. I'm kind of torn about the kids-loved to see them, but know the toddler will be active and the other one is Chatty Cathy. I will need rest the first couple days home from hospital, but then again, the company might be good therapy! I will know more come Sunday, when final decisions will be made.
I'm so ready for this to happen!
Almost exactly one year after mine. I will keep you my prayers. And I think having the kids around might be good. You'll need to rest some, yes, but honestly, they want you to be up and active as soon as you can.
I just registered for my first ever 5K! It's been something I've been wanting to do since before my surgery, and now it's finally going to happen. It's called "The Color Run." At each kilometer marker, they toss colored powder on you, and by the end you have a tie-dye t-shirt. It's un-timed, and I've been assured I'll have the time I need to finish. I know I can do the distance, because I've done it a few times in the past few months. But I think it will be good for me, and help me get out there to practice before the actual event.
