Physical therapy on Friday went well. I was "pumped" to have been able to ride the stationary bike for 10 minutes- 0.5 miles. Following PT I caught up with a friend and someone who's fully supported my triathlon endeavors. It was good to catch up with her and just like time with the Bookies I was again empowered and re energized. Later that day I went to my kid's elementary school and watched their Halloween Parade. I looked ridiculous- sitting on my camp chair, but I was there and that's what mattered to them. Following the parade my kids wanted to stay for after school party so I was chauffeured home by my good friend. We stopped at her house and hung out for an hour before I had to go home. It was so good to chat and be out of the house. I had two great "friend chats" in one day. These type of outings are what keeps me happy during this whole recovery process. I'm very lucky to have such great people in my life. My one friend then sent me a card with this great magnet- here's the saying.
I don't know that I'm a butterfly, but I like to think that through my metamorphosis period with this recovery I will become surprised with the end point picture of who I am after all this.
I've never really been one to use word count, but comes in handy for NaNoWriMo.
