Taken – The Recovery

Day Four began and ended at home in my own bed. I managed to walk around the inside of the house once or twice. I had to move slowly though because I was lightheaded and got dizzy very easily. I ate half a piece of toast with peanut butter on it for breakfast. I ate the other half for lunch. Even managed a small child’s portion of goulash for supper!

Day Five was much the same as Four except for the menu items. A fried egg sandwich for breakfast, a cold slice of leftover pizza for lunch, and almost a whole burrito for supper. My brother drove me around the woods in the Rhino. It’s grown so much since I left out there. I can’t wait until I feel well enough to get back out there.

Day 6 I was on a mission. I wanted to get to town, get to the store. Yeah, I really did to stock up on food. I also needed to feel like I was going to get back to normal some day. When I left Colorado the temperatures were mid 60s, now the temperatures down in Pueblo were over 90. I managed to survive the trip, but the heat forced me to abort after the first stop. I was glad to get back up the mountain, to the mid 70’s

Day 7 was the first day that I actually started to feel “like my old self”. I finally got to walk some of our trails with my brother. I took it easy and enjoyed being able to be out in the woods again.

Standing there in the flickering shade of a tree on the slopes of Greenhorn Mountain, feel the breeze flow around you as it dances through the grass and off down the slope. Listen to the sound of the wind as it pushes through the trees above you. Watch as the pines bend with the wind above you. The sky couldn’t be any bluer nor the clouds any whiter or puffier. If you stand in the Sun you feel toasty warm. If you stand in the shade you feel comfortable. The breeze is cool, but not cold. Everything is perfect.

Amazing what a difference a week can make.
