It is eight weeks on monday, since my spinal fusion. Eight weeks since I was in intensive care. Eight weeks since I couldn't walk. Eight weeks where I have been emotionally up and down like a roller coaster, one minute pleased with my progress, the next minute angry and the third minute despairing of ever being normal again.
Today was D-day. Today was the day I have had as my goal and my lifeline since I got the job and then had to tell them I needed eight weeks off. Today I blew it out of the water, exceeding all of my hopes (and fears!). Today I had my first day at work in store and I went without walking sticks and without baggage and for 9 hours I was just average shop assistant Sarah and it was AMAZING!!
I feel euphoric tonight! On top of the world! Yes, I had to take strong pain killers, and I am very tired, but I am so so triumphant! Empowered! Ecstatic! Even the ugly boy shoes won through and kept me on my feet.
So yeah, go me! I rule the world! I made it, I got there!! Gushiest post ever! WAY TO GO SARAH!!
IN YOUR FACE SPINAL FUSION!!
