Day 15 Post Op


Each day I see signs of improvement. Ability to walk alone, brain pressure, and nose/eyes pain seem to be getting better. I am so thankful that the healing process is right on time and I am ahead of the game with my physical therapy. It takes a lot of pushing myself each day and I do get tired but the results are worth everything.

Last night I got five hours of sleep total! This is huge! The pain in the eyes and nose seems to be a tad bit irritated today, but nothing like what it was before surgery. I also continue to see random circles and spots in my vision, but according to the doctor, this symptom will be the last to go.

I would be lying to you if I told you it’s easy seeing all of my friends go back to college on time and going about their daily lives. I’m not throwing a pity party, but I just miss the living the life I love. Gym, class, hanging out with friends, traveling, cooking, etc. But the exciting news?! I will be back at it before I know it!!

I just want to you to stop whatever you are doing right now and say a prayer of thankfulness to the Father who has given us life. Don’t ask for anything, just thank Him. No matter where we are in our lives, deepest valley or highest mountain, there are always things we can thank Him for.

For me?  Tonight I am continually thankful for being trusted with this journey.  I may not fully understand His timing, but I trust Him every step of the way.

Much love,

There is a time for everything and a season for every activity under the heavens.
-Ecclesiastes 3:1

P.S. Today’s pictures come from a visit from one of my precious sorority sisters, Meredith Tillman. She has been there for me every single step of the way throughout this journey. Even if its just to send me a text letting me know she is praying that day! So blessed by not only her friendship but every single one I have gained through Alpha Gamma Delta!


Meredith gave me this precious sign today!

  1. Anna, you look great and you sound as if things are working out well for you! Harry and I are so happy for you! I have some drainage from my incision that my local doctor isn’t worried about. He said that the fluid was just old blood from a bruise in the wound. I called Dr. Shahinian’s office and they told me that I could wait until my skype appointment on Monday to make sure that I was alright. Other than that, things are going well for me. Take care!
