Well since my last post I have been super busy. More busy than I have been in years. I tackled all the smile hospital bags to take up to hospital, made over 20 personalized christmas gifts, dealt with a flooded main bath and rowed and walked all over the place. I actually feel like I am doing better this week than last. When I go to bed I forget to put my oxygen on. That being said I did leave the oxygen off last night for the first time in 7 years. I kid you not! I did just fine but I felt like I was sleeping without my ‘binky’. I’m not ready to pack it up just yet. Maybe come camping season I can treat myself to oxygen less nights.
I wrote my yearly christmas letter and normally it’s filled with the usual stuff like life is a struggle but I keep on keeping on and add in that I wonder how long til the other shoe drops. That kinda stuff. Well this year was quite the opposite and it felt weird saying that I am feeling so well. I still cannot believe that this miracle drug has done just that…performed a miracle on me. I have so much to be grateful for and am feeling so blessed. It is a remarkable feeling. My life is surreal to me and I’m not sure when it will feel real.
I am looking forward to a low key Christmas with my family and then the count down begins to the start of camping season. I feel like a giddy little kid waiting to get back out there with my ‘new’ lungs. I have to say though that my life has always been good, even with the struggles I was facing everyday, it’s just that much better now. I feel honoured to usher in the new year with a kind heart, a deep breath and an abundance of love. I feel honoured because God chose me to save.
Until next Sunday, let the little things be the big things this week.
