I am finally home from the hospital after 9 days. Thank you all for your amazing outpouring of love and support for @geraldsaluti and I. That was one of the roughest, darkest experiences of my medical mystery history. I ended up having an intestinal blockage that just wouldn’t give up. I had surgery and the doctor released a large band of scar tissue that was wrapped around my intestines. The minute I opened my eyes I felt different. I could breathe. So much so that I felt dizzy at first. It’s remarkable how I feel after surgery. Call me an optimist but I know my future is bright. We ain’t got no quit in us! . . . #bekindallthetime#love#yoga#healthiswealth#besthusbandever#hospital#ostomy#livingwithanostomy#colostomy
Friends I am out of surgery! I am so touched by all the love, help, and support of everyone around us. Thank you all. I wish I could hug all of you. My medical team at Morristown Medical center was magnificent. Especial Thanks to Dr. Huk and my fave nurse @samibird -I adore you both. Now off to rest for more info on my health make sure you check the hubs @geraldsaluti Love you all so much #sorryforthetypos#bekindallthetime#iloveyou#healthiswealth
It has been years since I have posted a video of myself practicing yoga, that’s because it has been years since I have practiced yoga daily. Now a days my stomach issues only allow me to do some light yin yoga. Today I felt well enough to do a small flow, nothing fancy, the days of a fancy and advance yoga practice are long gone for me. I’m ok with that. I am just happy to be able to flow. My dear people, don’t take your health or yoga practice for granted. #bekindallthetime to your body it is the only one you get. . . . . @werkshop #livingwithanostomy#colostomy#ostomy#love#yoga#yogaeverydamnday#oneoeight . . .shoutout to my hubby for being my cheerleader @geraldsaluti
Sharing this post from my dear friend @bexlife because we all need to read this. Thank you @bexlife It took me a long time to become someone who could ask for help, be vulnerable, say, “I’m not okay.” Past experiences had taught me that showing “weakness” was dangerous, so I decided to be the “strong” one instead. It turned out that playing “strong” was the most harmful thing I could do for myself. That’s why I try to be as transparent as possible... to show you that even when dealing with heartache, life is SO worth living. That there are tools and people that can help you see the light when your world feels unbearably dark.
To my sisters and brothers who feel the need to put on a brave face in spite of their pain, please know that you are not alone and you have a friend in me and a place in my community.
To everyone out there with the strong friend that you think never needs your help, please reach out to them and ask how they’re doing today. You could be saving their life. I love you. #bekindallthetime#love
