revisiting....

yeah today was a crappy day. it started out bright and full of sun, i am grateful for that, but word from my doctor was not good. not unexpected, but still words i did not want to hear. words like "one percent" and "another procedure" aka more surgery. if i stick my fingers in my ears like an 8 year old and say "nah nah nah nah i can't hear youuuuuuuu" will that help? no. so it comes down to time. i have 2 weeks to hope for the best and prepare for the worst. best case being all the issues i am having will cease as swelling goes down. worst case is i stay the same as today or get worse and then need to return to surgery. so that is that.
i was feeling defeated. hubby and i went out for a quick bite to eat. (mmmmm panera) and then we headed to old navy to spend a gift card he had. we were not there 2 mins when this song played over the speakers. triggering my memory of this youtube video.  instantly i had a huge smile and was dancing among the aisles of clothes. it was just the pick me up i needed i almost cried. then i found an old school head band that SO reminded me of olivia newton john (let's get physical years) and i put it on my head and called to my hubby across the store. we both got a good laugh out of that. so thank you old navy, thank you universe, i needed that song today so i could remember this video that i LOVE with all my soul. it was an instant lift. so i am replaying it here for all of you. i know you have all seen it before, but maybe you could use the smile today too as much as i did. XO!  go ahead chair dance,  you know you want to... "1-2-3-4!"

That was so incredible (the video!), and I'm glad the song buoyed you up on a hard day. I'm hoping you are one of the one percent that escapes further surgery. Keeping my fingers crossed tight.

i'm sorry your doctor's words weren't more inviting. i'm hoping your body recovers and that further surgery won't be necessary.

i love that video too and i'm such a dork, that i always cry. and wish that i was getting married (again) so we could do a dance...mine would be thriller. :)

Oh, Kristin. I'm sorry you had some bad news from the doctor. It is so hard when our bodies let us down. Especially after working so hard to recover from your surgery. Sending you thoughts of healing and peace. xx P.S. That video is amazing. I think I may have to watch it every single day for the rest of February.
