Thankful for Sunny days!

April 21, 2016

The weather has been absolutely gorgeous here lately and I couldn’t be more thankful. Most of Spring and last Summer, I was either preparing for my next open heart surgery or recovering from it. It is a full 2 month recovery-sometimes more depending on how you recover. From what I can remember, I think the day after my surgery, for some reason any sort of light bothered me to the point where I had to wear sunglasses most of the time in the hospital and at home. Yep, my goal was to start a new fashion trend. 😉


At the time, I looked ridiculous, but I did not care one bit. The day after your surgery, everything goes out the window and you do whatever makes you even somewhat comfortable. Thinking back to that day gives me so much anxiety especially since I’ll have to do it all over again someday. Hopefully not for a long time. Keep behaving Wilbur, keep behaving please!!! 🙂

Since I was barely outside during most of my recent recovery, I feel like I skipped out on last Summer and the warm sunny days it brings. It was hard, but obviously worth it as I am able to do more than I could last year.

It’s amazing the things you take for granted. Simple warm sunny days are something I will never take for granted again. I could be in the worst pain or in a horrible mood one day and as long as it’s sunny out, I will keep reminding myself that those are the days to not waste away on even in the sufferings of life.
