Jessica Marie and I enjoying some Mexican food, per usual.

Something nerdy: I just stepped foot in the house from a night out with my girls. What's nerdy about that? It was so normal, so amazing, so unusual for me that I wanted to remember everything and blog about it right away. I wanted to remember how HAPPY I felt, right now, so I needed to write this before I lay down my head to sleep tonight.

Euphoric.  It's feels like doing something you have wanted to do, but never thought you would get the opportunity. Maybe it's a trip you have always wanted to go on overseas or some far off land you have seen pictures of, or a degree you always thought about going back to get or a dream job if you had all the money in the world and working was "just for fun". Have I lost my mind? My 3 girlfriends just dropped me off, probably not thinking twice about our night out, or maybe even thinking it wasn't as great as their last weekend. But to me it was a real milestone in my recovery. A HUGE milestone in my recovery. To me it marked something so much bigger than just a night out. It marked doing something that I was not sure I would be able to do, even 3 weeks ago.

Tonight: What does 8 Weeks and 2 Days Post-Op look like? (and one day I won't count anymore either)
I ate a delicious Mexican feast at yep you guessed it, Old P!
I drank a glass of WINE! Real wine, I nursed it all night, but who cares, I still got to have one.
I laughed, and laughed and gabbed with girlfriends.
I enjoyed chocolate cake (with a side of insulin, so good though).
I enjoyed company of great friends.
Tonight before bed I will be praying God continues to bless me on my journey back to health.
I felt normal for the first time in a long time!
Gina and I! Sad I didn't get a picture with my roommate and soon to
be b-day girl Jackie, but hey I am sure there will be plenty more nights for that!
