A new start

I can't believe it is April! I am amazed how fast March went. The weather was so nice and warm so I think that helped a lot! I kept waiting for one last snowfall but it never came! It is kinda chilly now, well actually it is normal temps but we have been above normal for so long that now it feels chilly.

Today I started back part time at the Pharmacy again. It is amazing what a year can do. I left my job there last January to have a little surgery and now 16 months later, after being in the hospital for seven months I am back working, well working part time. I am still not able to do full time but at least I am getting back a little bit. I am so excited to be able to see my old customers. I got so many well wishes, cards and prayers from them through everything so it will be great to see them. I am also excited to be able to just get out of the house and having something to get up for, at least two days a week. I will still be going to the hospital three times a week for my therapy and to workout so it will work really well.

I can't help but think about where I was a year ago. I was still in ICU, not able to walk or hardly lift my arms.  I remember that last Resurrection Sunday I had another set back. My mom, dad, sister, brother, sister in law and nephews were there and they had brought me food from a restaurant. I couldn't even eat it because I was so sick. I can't remember for sure but I think I had gotten another infection and my wound still was not healing. Now I am going back to work part time. It has been a lot of hard work and there have been many days when I didn't think I would ever be able to do this so I am pretty proud and happy that I am able to go back.

Tomorrow I have to work a full day, 8:30 -5:30 so I better get to bed. I want to thank all of you for your prayers and support! Even though I haven't met a lot of you face to face you are so very special to me!

Have a very blessed day and Easter!
