Before I had surgery I always thought to myself that the day I could no longer climb this hill...that would be the day that I would know it was time. As it turned out, I was able to climb the hill up until the day I went into the hospital. When I returned home post surgery in a very weakened condition I said to myself that the day I can once again climb this hill...that will be the day when I know that I am recovering. I climbed the hill this morning. I was winded for sure, but I did it! I'm truly coming back.
