My pre-opp appointment with my plastic surgeon was less stressful. I felt better about myself and increasing in my comfort level with him. The purpose of this appointment was strictly photographic. Lots of “mug shots” in a humorously awkward moment, the doctor was done and we were leaving.
I had my really intensive Friday boxing/running workout just before the appointment so I think really wearing myself out and beating on that punching bag released some of the stress that was pent up inside. It’s really amazing how much the boxing helps! Sometimes, I suppose you just need to beat something up.
There is a small sense of calm. Maybe I’m settling into “how” I can handle this – long-term. Maybe the prayers are working and this is the strength and calm that God provides.
