Can't give up

Sunday, May 27, 2018

Last October I spent a month in the hospital. Had a horrible infection in my leg that spread to my blood. For a moment I didn't think I was going to get better. I was in extreme pain and on bedrest on lots of iv meds. They ended up doing surgery and removing most of my skin from the knee to ankle. The recovery was long and painful. I learned that the infection had literally burned my leg. So since then I had not been active and experienced a lot of weakness in my leg. But a week ago I decided that this was enough. I no longer want to feel sorry for myself for all my scars. I want to embrace the path God chose for me and do what I can to get back to being me. It is not an easy thing to do but even after working 6 days i am still coming home and walking 15-20 min. I know I am making progress because yesterday was the 1st time I made it through without stopping!! It's a small step...but a step in the right direction. I will not fail myself...
