Patience is a virtue.
Seems the older I get, while I have practiced some patience but when it comes to the healing of the body, it's still very lacking. This break in the ankle which is normally to take between 6 months to a year of recovery, is just too long. But what makes it harder is the fact that tendonitis has developed on the same ankle for months.. fine line I am walking. (heehee.. no puns intended)
I never thought that I would be in a place where for long months I would be unable to jog or run the way I enjoy it. The body's addiction of the hormones of a runner's high has become quite immense. I had not even realized how much I enjoy the runner's high, more importantly it really kept my balance of mind, spirit, and body. Amen. Without being sick one wouldn't realize the importance of being healthy and the importance of every body part. I just can't quite say this enough times.
Just seems that through this period of recovery, I am to learn some important lessons during the recovery of this injury. Learning to not be dependent on some things. That life some times throws curve balls at us and all we can do is catch it. Actually without a choice too. (LOL) But during this time, it certainly helps me focus on doing some of the things that I had always wanted to do. When I was healthy in mobility, I was often too spastic and not calm enough to do all that I wanted to do. I am definitely in need to learn to balance it. As someone who loves her balance, this is a very good lesson to learn. While exercising is great, and one of the things I love, but reading is just as great too!
I never learned to appreciate reading until recent years. There's quite a long lost years of reading in my life. Now catching up the readings that I want to do, while also continue to write. :)
My stitches are out!!!
Two weeks after oral surgery and have bone graft to my jaw bone, the stitches cam out yesterday. While the bone isn't all ready for me to consume normal food, and it still needs a couple of weeks or so before the gun can lost all the swelling, but it definitely feels a lot looser and at ease without the stitches in it. The bone will take about 3-4 months before an implant will be ready to go in.
Even better, I am off antibiotics!! Man.. yes i heard that there would be antibiotics involved but I didn't think it would be out of the ordinary in terms of just normal dosage and what not. In fact it was really strong dosage and for about two weeks time. I have avoided antibiotics the best to my abilities for the past few years.. and bang! This oral surgery with jaw bone graft came in, and I was on 1500 mg of antibiotics a day for two weeks. Gees...
So now that I am off antibiotics, a detox should come along to clear and restore my good healthy bacteria and cleanse the antibiotics out of my system.
Life is here now!
Here is the space where I will share about my passion and life.
