7 Weeks Out Post Take Down

The past week has been great.  Work has been a blast, family life has been a blast, life has been a blast.  I am so happy with my surgery results.  Things continue to get better and better.

My scar still looks nasty, but that is the least of my worries.

7 Week Scar

7 Week Scar

I am still careful with what I eat.  I have tried some new things here and there (like four Mickey Ice Cream Bars, mmmmmm, ice cream.  Kind of hurt me later, a little.) and have handled most of them very well.  My group of ‘good’ food is getting bigger.  I’ve  had no butt burn in over two weeks.  I still deal with butt itch though.  Sometimes I could scratch my crack raw.  But that is getting better, so time will tell how that goes.

I’ve had NO panic attacks at work.  I have had urgency’s while in show, but have remained calm and just waited to get off stage and make it to the bathroom.  It has been a great feeling.  I even got a Crew Chief position at one of the stages.  I never could have done this position before, but now I am able to.

Night is still hard for me, but it doesn’t start until around 8 or 9 at night.  It, like everything else, is getting better.

My mind is finally catching up with my body and realizing that I am healing and getting better.  This has been a relief.  I am still learning and training my body to handle everything the right way and it is working.  So if you are going through this or are about to go through this, hang in there.  Life gets better.  Things will pass and new things will come and better days will be ahead.  😛

  1. glad to hear that you are doing so well. I dont think that I have caught what it is exactly that you do for work. Sounds like production though. I must tell you that your belly is looking fit and trim (it doesnt look like, what did you call it, a little butt.) Are you able to work out now or is it just changing from diet? CONGRATULATIONS on your promotion, be proud about it, God is rewarding you for being patient.

  2. The doctor said that I can begin working out again. I think I can do 3 sit ups and 1 pull up. So I have a LONG way to go to getting back into shape.

  3. It’s great to hear that you are doing so well. I am still waiting my consultation and have been doing really bad. But I keep my head up by making lists of what I will be able to do afterwards and of course, the promise of a Disney vacation also helps!!! Continue to keep us up to date– your story really has eased some of the emotional stress that would come with this impending surgery!

  4. PTL things are going so well!

  5. I’m SO VERY GLAD to hear the good report! Are you gonna write a book about your crazy life someday? God is so good!

    • Thanks for the kind words. Yes, I am still kicking around the idea of a book, I even have the first two chapter written. It is coming together slowly, who knows, I might actually finish it someday. Thanks again 🙂

  9. The scars don’t look that bad-and your stomach is looking much better. I am so glad things are turning out so well for you. What a great testimony you and your family have. Thank you for continuing to share your story.
