An Important Lesson Learned


As I promised at the beginning of writing this blog, I will continue to update my followers on my progress throughout the healing process! It has been a week since my last update and not much has changed. I have noticed the biggest increase in feeling better within the past two weeks. Although I am feeling more and more like myself with each passing day, there are still days that are not so great. But the good news about the bad days? They are not near as bad as they were before or right after surgery. A bad day usually results from too much stimulation and pushing myself a bit too hard. My strength is something that I have to challenge myself to work towards each day. Around 4:00 P.M. each day I feel as if I have hit a brick wall and become physically exhausted. It is important to listen to my body and rest while also making sure I am still walking even when I am exhausted.

My next major goal is to attend an Alabama football game in two weeks! I cannot wait to be back inside Bryant Denny Stadium cheering on the #1 football team in the nation. As I have said in the past, the best way to motivate yourself during recovery is to set goals!

The healing process is tedious and requires a lot of patience. Let me tell you, God has most certainly taught me a long lesson of patience during this journey.

If someone following my story can gain anything, I hope that they learn the importance of trusting God and his timing. God changed my life forever within a matter of seconds and has reminded me, in a powerful way, to trust His plans, His timing, and His promises. He will never give us anything that we cannot conquer. Be thankful for each day you have been blessed with. Some people would give anything to do the simple things we all take for granted. J

Much love,

Whatever you do, work at it with all of your heart, as working for the Lord, not men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ that you are serving.

-Colossians 3:23-24

  2. Hi name is Malessia. My daughter is 17 and has had a major headache for 3-4 weeks. She had a
    MRI OCt 3 and has a 1.1cm Pineal cyst. Her neurologist says that is not what is causing headaches. He has agreed to let us see a Neurosurgeon next week. I am inspired by your story. Thank you for the blogs and continues inspiration.
