It was an interesting week. What I thought would be a quiet week ended up being quite hectic. A routine medical procedure on Wednesday landed me on an operating room table by Friday. Yes I was scared but more than that I was sad. Not only was I in excruciating pain but all I could think of was ,' Why can't I just get a break?' Ok, I was feeling sorry for myself quite a bit. I'm home recovering and going through the events that transpired this past week. I have to say the one thing I have learned over the years is that we are our own advocates. We absolutely know our bodies best and generally, if we think something is not right, it isn't. Find someone who will listen. Keep pushing, keep asking and never be afraid to use your voice.
