She’s Back…

A little more than a month ago, I started a new chapter in my life when I moved 800 miles south on my own in order to begin a recovery program for amputees. Living in a Fisher House (very nice room with a private bath -one of 20 rooms in my house – with a huge community living space – kitchen, living room, etc. – with all amenities that is free to military and family members being seen at the hospital) that is immediately next to the building where most of my appointments are means I am never more than a couple minutes from where I need to be and therefore I have more time to dedicate to recovering.

I know it’s been a long time since I posted something like this. As soon as I got here, I found myself exhausted from transitioning from doing not much of anything physical each day to being physically active and working Stimpy (the stump) intensely each day.

The adventures I’ve had since beginning have already been ridiculous to the degree that the medical community has agreed that I am the baby Pegasus Unicorn type patient they will never see again.

Now I have my voice back, look out!

  1. Ah, there you are Kit! I’m glad you have transitioned. We stayed at the Fisher House in Texas on the Brooke Army Medical Bse while my brother was hospitalized (Army). It was a nice community of families and support. In fact, Denzel Washington toured The Fisher House at BAMC and asked how much would it cost to build another? Then he wrote a check. No big media news or anything. I’ve wanted to go back and see it! But the Fisher Houses on these bases are nice all over the states. Are you settled in and finding everything you need???

    1. I am settled! In fact I’m in the FH at BAMC and I lived about 10-15 from BAMC for about 18 months a few years ago.

      The life of a professional patient in recovery is exhausting. This is my 6th weekend and it is the first I’ve been out of the hospital and with energy to get out and about.

      Our current prayer is for zero drama and all the healing so I can finally move forward. In God’s time. ~Kit

  2. It’s been a while, glad I came back at the right time. Now I get to her about you flying away as a Pegasus horse can do. Watch for those low flying clouds and those pink flamingos. All my prays and wishes for energy and straight sailing. Aunt Joan🌹
