Things are still going great. Chloe is doing wonderful! This week she registered to start high school next year. Before going to Germany, the idea of high school caused a lot of anxiety for Chloe because she was struggling to keep up with middle school due to her seizures and not feeling well. Now it’s a whole different story! She’s very excited and has signed up to take Bio Med first quarter.
I learned a valuable lesson this week. I may be feeling fantastic, but I need to learn to take it slow and give myself time to build back up. I used to love running, but wasn’t able to do it for the last six months before Germany. I didn’t have the muscle strength and would hurt for days after trying.
My treadmill was calling my name on Wednesday, so I hopped on did a hard and fast three miles. This would have been a piece of cake back in the day, but it was too much for me at this point. I felt great while running, and was definitely able to do it no problem, but spent the rest of the day sick and throwing up. I took yesterday off but am getting ready to hop back on now for another go- just at a slower pace.
It makes me so happy to have something I love and had to give up back in my life! Each day I feel a little stronger. I’m so very thankful to be finding the healthy version of me again.
