One Month Later

(This photo was at the two week mark.)

It's now July. Last week my recovery really turned a positive corner. Pain has greatly decreased. I can now be sitting and realize I don't feel any pain. Now that I made it to this step I feel like I can start looking at the future.

Saturday Jim and I went down to the beach for a walk and to get some dinner. We were walking down Seal Beach Pier and here I was, passing other people and not stopping to catch my breath. Wow! 

On our way to the end of the pier there was a young pelican hanging out with the fisherman, waiting for some dinner. I love pelicans. They look look so prehistoric. I just love watching them fly, dive into the water, or just up close and personal.

Walking back to Main Street we saw a beautiful, perfect sunset. Behind the glaring sun was the Downtown Long Beach skyline. Still feeling great walking along with no need to stop and check my pulse. 

On to Walt's Wharf for dinner. This was a dinner to celebrate! Celebrating my health and recovery. I haven't had King Crab legs in years. Jim convinced me to go for it. So good.

Life is good, very, very good. And it's only going to get better!
