Funny how everyone has a different journey. I don't usually share personal, but... It's week 8 since my open heart surgery. My incision is flat, healed, and surprisingly not darkened. I owe it to my homemade healing balm. Yes, I used oils on my scar as soon as I was home.
But I have had a lot of complications. Lots of fluid retention especially in the lungs resulting in an ER visit last week.
Chest radiation in the 90's lead to damage to my arteries, valves, thyroid, and led to congestive heart failure. My surgery may not have healed it all.
All I can say is that today was a good day, despite everything in my everyday life.
I have lost weight, I struggle with my appetite, and I cut off all my hair. Yep, had to have it "fixed". But I am trying...waiting
