post tx awareness

May 11, 2012 - 15 comments

From the time I stepped out of bed in the ICU after my transplant,
my central theme has been forward motion.
This concept served me well during my recovery and recent hep c  treatment,
always keeping focused on putting one foot in front of the other.

Following an urge to be close to nature, today I sat in the garden breathing in the gentle scent of wisteria.
My eyes fell on a heron near the water, two Mallards came and sat near me, heads cocked.
Enjoying the scene, a wave of relaxation overwhelmed me.
Yet, my mind habitually raced to the next moment, the next place to go, the next thing to do.

A thought arrived on the breeze~
Now, I no longer needed to continue pushing forward.
With healing comes change.

Quieting my mind,
I feel at peace, in the moment.

Although I've felt better, and better, since the end of treatment, something changed just a few days ago, a shift that lifted the lingering cloud of tx.
I feel the transition after the intense focus on my liver over the last seven years.

Yes, indeed Dee.
One step, one day, one moment at a time, that's the way we get from here to there;)
