Everything I do is in slow motion….Hmm??
Its taken me a while to get to this blog post. It holds a lot and I think I needed to get distance from the event that prompted it before I could write about it.
Let me begin with the first statement….
Nearly 9 weeks ago now I under went surgery for Melanoma Cancer. This was the last straw after taking our eldest to college in DC, ( emotionally hard), getting stuck due to Hurricane Irene,( fun having extra time with her). Got home after a week, thank God, to begin my next 6 weeks of service at the food shelf developed due to Irene. During this period I knew I needed to get to the Dr to have things checked, finally I did, and long story short, here I am and its all good!
When I began to get back to my barn routine I was cautious with my leg, walking softly to say the least. One day I was puttering at best , chipping away at stalls etc when I realised I was so protective of my right leg and really giving my left leg a run for its money with compensating . Often times I would take a break and sit on the shavings bags to rest my leg and back, and move my shoulders around a bit then back to work. I said out loud, to myself, as I often do while in the barn,” Boy this compensating and protecting stuff is hard work”.
With that statement I had so many revelations come rushing in ……..
