This is great advice for us. I recall posting on here about my wish list as I reached each goal. Of course, you don’t have to wait until post surgery to be proud of yourself. You can feel good about making plans, taking a little exercise, getting your hair or nails done.

After surgery, my goals came thick and fast. Wearing a ladies watch instead of a man’s one was just a month after my op I think, it felt great. Then walking more easily, increasing my distance, including some uphill in my daily walks were all massive progress for me. All that lead to where I am today, which is a person who chooses to run up 3 flights of stairs, taking them 2 at a time. Unbelievable!

I love my new life, there are not enough superlatives to describe it!

Oh my life, you’ve just reminded me that I used to have to wear men’s watches, Chris!

There are so many we forget after not having to do them anymore. We all know the obvious ones: no extender belt on a plane, crossing our legs, tying our own shoelaces without needing a chiropractor and lung transplant afterwards, fitting into theatre/cinema seats, the list goes on and on. But I had forgotten that one.

Another one for me was that my hats became too big! We even lose weight from our heads??!! It’s a fascinating, exciting, often surprising and wonderful journey this wls mularkey. I, like you, love life now. I can’t run up three flights of stairs but I CAN do stairs – that was impossible before my bypass.

Thanks for your fabulously positive updates, Chris. They are such a tonic 🙂
