Bounce Back



The only thing I can say is that you have to keep fighting. Sometimes this is easier said than done. Over the past few weeks, I have been in a struggle because I had major surgery.  It has been a real struggle to keep my mind  straight and the strength to fight through all the physical pain. In this writing, I will briefly share my experiences and tools that helped me and just might help you. I am on my ” Bounce Back”

I had a surgery where I was supposed to be in the hospital for maybe two days. Well those two days turned into 10 days of round the clock care. I thank God for a good treatment team and support system. I had a condition that was called ovarian remnant that had developed  a cyst (benign mass) that had created a blood supply and caused my internal organs to be matted together and had to be corrected. Also during the procedure my colon was injured and to be repaired. Long Road to recovery, as I have been very sick and over there past few days, I have begun to gain more of my strength back but not without a fight and a press. I thank God for prayer as when it felt that it was not getting better just calling/ humming “Jesus” gave me just the push to keep pushing.

“My Advice to Bounce Back”


Keep a positive attitude 

Have a good support system (family , church family & friends)

Listen to others who have had similar experiences

Follow instructions of medical time

Be in a positive environment 

Try to eat if at all possible (for a period of time, I could not keep anything down)

Keep scriptures before you to build your faith…… 

 5Trust in the LORD with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding. 6In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight.…Proverbs 3:5-6

Much Love, Nora
