Monday, I went in for some sinus surgery; I haven’t been able to breathe through my left nostril in years. I had suffered from chronic sinus and ear infections. This isn’t life threatening, but it sure isn’t fun.
Over the last couple of years of redesigning my life to include fitness, I have learned many things. This week was no exception. And I do direct this gratitude directly at the Talisman Centre and their offerings for it. A few years ago, before I started taking care of myself, I had nerve surgery on my Ulner Nerve (Funny bone) and it hurt so bad. It took weeks and weeks to recover. But my life was different. Today, I eat well. I drink less. I’m in the Talisman Centre a couple of times a week. Overall, I am healthy.
Fast forward to today. I saw my report card this week, and it looks good. My body healed faster, and I feel better. From all perspectives, my sinus surgery was more invasive than my last surgery. My conclusion: by investing in myself, listening to my doctors recovery instructions and with going into surgery with the head start of living life as a fit human (thanks to the assistance and direction of the professionals at the Talisman Centre) I have been able to overcome more than ever. And faster too, simply by living a healthy life.
When my week started, I was this:
My friends, it is worth it. I can tell you that. Of course I had the most amazing doctor and medical team at the Rockyview Hospital. I’ve been icing and doing everything my doctor asked me to do. But, I thank everyone who has been part of this journey. But the proof is in the pictures. My body is stronger and ready to take on life. Thank you Talisman Centre!
