It's amazing how one day you can feel at the bottom of the world and then the next your flying above the clouds. How one day you wake up and realize you've been neglecting yourself while trying to learn to balance life and all it's unexpected glories. Today has been a good day. I mean a really good day. I woke up feeling great. Went to Sophia's follow up with her cardiologist and received wonderful news. The cath procedure worked better than we suspected and Sophia's gradiant has gone all the way down to 30! Immediately after the procedure her gradiant was 70 and in one week it's gone to 30 so what more can I ask for?! Life has a funny way of knocking you down only to pick you right back up again. I felt stress immediately beginning to melt off my shoulders after the cardiologist came in. Now instead of monthly visits we go every 3 months. Scratch one doctor off the monthly visitation list!
Today I also went tanning for the first time in about 2 years. Tanning although bad for your skin, I know, is something I've always enjoyed doing. I've realized lately that I have been neglecting myself since we found out about Sophia's differences last August. To finally go and do something thats me, something that I enjoy and something that makes me feel better about myself was just wonderful. I think our family is finally finding our groove in our new life. We've found what works for us and although we're still learning we're working it all out.
