The recovery from surgery is going well, but not as fast as I would have hoped. Sure, it has been less than six weeks and closer to five, but I would have liked to have no sense of their still being a wound. The scar/healing wound is fine – just hoped it wouldn’t still be uncomfortable (especially when sitting). Still, I am thankful for the success of the operation and the generally good healing that is happening. I think sometimes we can expect too much and not recognise the good that we have – and not be thankful enough for it.
