This week has been a good one, full of appointments and phone calls!
I met with my Endometriosis surgeon on Tuesday morning has agreed to pursue the second bowel resection to remove the Endometriosis on my sigmoid colon. Then just 30 minutes later, I had a telemedicine appointment with my primary care provider who submitted the insurance authorization request for the referral to my colo-rectal surgeon.
That same afternoon, I scheduled my consultation appointment with my colo-rectal surgeon, even though we hadn’t received insurance approval; a step that may take one to two weeks.
I woke up Wednesday morning to an email from my medical group approving the colo-rectal surgey consult, surgery, and several post-op visits!
It’s in the works! So quickly! I currently am scheduled to see my colo-rectal surgeon on September 22nd, but have asked to be put on the cancellation list in case his calendar opens up sooner. We shall see! Then? Get that surgery on calendar to deal with my guts!
Fight. Push forward. Do what you need to do for YOU. Whatever it may be.
So today’s quote:
“Don’t just seek out help when you are suffering. Every day is a good day to learn, grow, and help yourself. Every day is a good day to invest in bettering the quality of your life.”
― Akiroq Brost
We can. We will. We’ve got this!
Good morning, guys! And happy Friday!
I know we all have our bad moments, days, weeks, months, or even years. Life can be ruthless, unfair, and tough. Whatever you may be going through, I want you to take a moment and really let today’s quote soak in:
“Do something nice for yourself today. Find some quiet, sit in stillness, breathe. Put your problems on pause. You deserve a break.”
― Akiroq Brost
Did you read it? Take a deep breath, clear your thoughts, and read it again.
Really let it sink in.
Then give it a moment and identify something you’ll do for yourself today. It could be anything. Tell me about it in the comments. Then come back later and reply to your comment: were you able to do it?
We all deserve a moment to ourselves.
Even if it’s just to get away for five minutes and take a walk around the block.
May you have a weekend filled with a few relaxing moments. Enjoy.
Blogs I updated this week:
Dungeon & Dragons & Donuts: How RPG Games May Help with (Fill In The Blank): added Chapter 26 from our April 2019 session. Our adventurers have landed in the Anauroch desert in search of the City of Shade and Zeke, the man with the jars of souls. While in town, they meet a mysterious woman also searching for Zeke. Deals are struck and the adventure continues! Let’s deal with a little bit of heat and sand in places where it doesn’t belong!
The end of the week already? And June will be done before we know it?!?
Today’s quote is a simple reminder:
“As important as it is to have a plan for doing work, it is perhaps more important to have a plan for rest, relaxation, self-care, and sleep.”
― Akiroq Brost
Do not forget to find time during your busy week to do…simply nothing. Rest. Relax. Breathe. Take care of yourself. (Please)
Much love to you! ~Lisa
