One Year Ago Today…

I have the feeling that I will be repeating the phrase “one year ago today” quite a bit in 2014.

I said it today.

One year ago today, I went to the University of Chicago for a GI appointment with Dr. Cohen. There I learned that I could get my life back. I learned that I needed surgery.

One year ago today I realized that my life was going to change.

I am now just over 2 months post-op from my final surgery. I am feeling stronger and better each day! I can’t explain in words what is feels like to be well (and I am not even back 100%) again! There are not too many life events that are celebrated year after year, besides birthdays and  wedding anniversaries, of course. But in 2014, I am going to add a date (or two) to my celebration list (I think I have earned it)!

Here’s to today!
