Visitors, and a Different Experience

Yesterday and today I've had visits from friends and relatives.  Some visits have been an 'energy add' for me, and some have been an 'energy drain".  It's disctictive.  I wonder if it might have something to do with my literally having new heart parts to experience the world with, but I'm noticing people's intentions much more clearly - even when they aren't consciously aware of them themselves.  Funny thing.  There are those who who come to visit me to make themselves feel better, and there are those who visit me to truly 'be' with me in my time of need.   Takers, and givers. The words said may even be the same, but the feeling is different.  I don't say anything about it, because somehow I know that it wouldn't be understood.  It would probably be stressful - for them and for me.  Not good for either.

A neighbor brought a delicious pasta salad for dinner.  I could tell my body needed a little more protein so I added a can of tuna and it did the trick.  Marcia came home during her work today so I could take my first shower since I've been home.  Feels really good.  It tired me out though, and I slept for 3 hours after.  I looked at my arms, chest, and stomach for the first time.  Wow.  It looks like somebody beat me up!  Lots of bruises all over and lots of places that need healing.  Body's are amazing.  And no wonder mine still hurts.

I'm posting some pictures - I hope they come out OK.

Your perception of the space around you grows more astute each breath it seems ... I am hopeful that those who need an energy boost or someone to tell their sad stories to, will find solace elsewhere, or with another. Mayhaps I will bring you a bigger dog, one who likes tuna and chocolate ice cream : D

Hi Gwyn..... I'm so happy to read that you are getting better day by day. Even though you hurt and are tired, you look beautiful as always. Even in pictures your beautiful nature shines through right off the page. I'm sure you've made such a difference in the lives of those you came in contact with at the hospital, it's just who you are. :) I will continue to send out Reiki for you and keep you in my thoughts and prayers and I know I will read that you are getting better and better with each passing day. I will keep up on your blog to see how you are. And if there is anything else I can do, please don't hesitate to just ask..... "You just call out my name...." (My fave song)..... Love to you, Sue Packham
