Sorry for being MIA for a little while. Things have been pretty busy since my last post. I turned 31 and had a karaoke party. It was great to be able to hang with friends, dance, sing, and enjoy some beverages. It was one of the first times I felt 100% back to my old self since my mastectomy in August. I’ve also been in my preceptorship/immersion part of nursing school, which means I’ll be spending 300 hours in Labor & Delivery this quarter. It’s been awesome. Sadly, my allergies got really really bad last week and I ended up getting pretty sick with sneezing/coughing/sore throat. I’m thankful I didn’t get sick at all during the initial recovery process because my chest is pretty sore from all the coughing, and I’m 6 weeks out from surgery. I can’t imagine how badly it would have hurt to be coughing a lot right after surgery, even laughing after my mastectomy was almost too much to handle.
Right now, I’m trying to balance feeling more and more like myself with making sure I still give myself enough time to rest and continue with my recovery. I’ll definitely be blogging more often, now that I’m feeling better!
