1 Year since I had my knee reconstruction.
.
.
This day a year ago, was probably the most alone I've ever felt. I had never had any type of surgery before and had a long unplanned wait of 3 hours as the theater schedule was running late. 3 hours is a long time to sit there alone and contemplate life.
No one knew that I had been broken up with my then partner for over 3 months apart from my mum and sis. I remember wishing I had some family or friends there, people who loved me to reassure me everything would be ok. Not that they didn't offer before the day, but never wanting to be a burden said I would be fine. I thought about the worst case scenario me dying (So dramatic) and prepared some snaps for my family, friends and of course Tay 😂🤦🏽‍♀️
I also distinctly remember at one point wanting to see my mum and dad as I was told I was going in soon. As I thought this, the song (Wonderful tonight) that dad sang to mum on her birthday came on the radio. At that moment I knew I was going to be ok 💛 (little whisper from the universe)
Anywho, my surgeon was super amazing and drew a lil smiley on my knee (everyone knows I love a smileyface).. surgery was a success and I didn't die 😜
Recovery has been a long road! But long story short fast forward a year, I'm in the best shape of my life - physically, mentally & emotionally. I'm surrounded by so many amazing people and relationships with friends and family have never been better. I've also had the most amazing experiences in the past year, travelling, exploring and of course this past summer.
Looking back this was probably one of the best things that has happened to me. Helped me focus on what's important, start putting myself first, started asking for help and confirmed who the important people in my life are. You know who you all are xx Overall just gave me a better perspective on the life I want.
Anyway that's all for now, lil reflection download.

Always have time for this amazing hooman. Thank you for making me feel normal again, Miss Magic Fingers! It’s been too long and you did well to understand my muffles through the massage table 😂👌 What a fun chat! 😆

I can most definitely recommend Trish if any of you wish to experience her caring expertise through Symmetry Massage Clinic in Coogee! And as a bonus, if you happen to be funny, she has the BEST laugh! 😁

Sorry not sorry if this grosses people out. This is my incision from my L4-S1 fusion. Generally this surgery a tough of course in Michelle fashion there were difficulties and challenges. The pain is unreal. This will be a huge learning experiment!! #begentle #allbetternow #EDS #chiarisucksmylifedoesnthaveto #

{Friday} by the time Friday rolls around I feel like a snooze at the park too 😂 this was my kiddo the other week when she wasn’t feeling well and I took her out to get some vitamin D... instead she ended up with vitamin Z!!
.
At least we’re hitting the pool this morning... it’s open for the summer. We’re all feeling better... ready for some vitamin D for real this time.

Much needed trip to Richmond's @onepavedcourt gallery to see the Norman Ackroyd ‘Travels with Copper & Wax’ exhibition. Such a friendly gallery & a superb exhibition too. Beautifully atmospheric etchings that make me long to return or seek out the new. Tomorrow is your last chance to catch it! #etching #aquatint #printmaking #normamackroyd #travelswithcopperandwax #allbetternow
Flash back Friday! The day I got out of surgery, I was high as heck... cat; that was some good stuff!! #highashell #highcat #betterthancatnip #allbetternow #bobthemanx #manxofinstagram #catsofinstagram #manx #catsgonewild #flashbackfriday #fbf
Secret: we haven’t kissed for more than 5 weeks.
Not secret: it was 100% non-voluntary.
I got Strep Throat (presumably from a flight, and 4 subsequent 16 hour work days), and then when it finally cleared up 3 weeks later I had cold sores in the front of my mouth for another 2 weeks. 😫🙄😷😠😭
I am pleased to report the conclusion of this involuntary field study in not kissing. My conclusion? It sucks.
But boy does it make me appreciate kissing all the more! Now if you’ll excuse me, I believe I have a make-out session calling my name. 😍😍

Sometimes you think they are sooooo big. And then other times, like today, you realise they are soooooo little. Adenoids out, grommets put in. She’s been a superstar. I’ve been suppressing all concerns and smiling on the outside. It went well, she ate all the ice cream and jelly afterwards and now she’s tucked up in bed, snoring a lot less than last night. Such good care at Blackheath hospital. #sickkids #wellkids #daughtered #hospital #adenoids #glueear #grommets #hospitalfood #allbetter #allbetternow #nilbymouth #supportivefriends  #blackheath #lewisham #thankgodthatsover #whatnext

Bogner Alchemist came in DOA: No front panel leds, No heaters on any preamp/phase inverter tubes. Output tubes had both heaters and B+. Any of my tech friends want to guess what the source of the problem was?

As I was rolling around in my #roughmorning and having a #pitypartyforone #5minutejournal reminded me to start my day with #gratitude at the right moment. A whole aquaball was poured into the carseat cupholder, my foot got smashed as my toddler pretended to be #batman but I am #allbetternow #thankful

Not my happy face - missed my double #deadlift at 200kg because I was #impatient rushed my warmups and jumped right from an easy double at 180 to 200. Failing when you’ve done your best is no problem, but when it’s because you didn’t prepare properly- it sucks.  If I’d done a couple more light sets and then gone up from 180 to 190 before trying 200, I’d have at least had a chance. Backed off to 185 and did 3x2.  Then accessory work till I got got out of an impending funk. As #marypoppins wisely advised for when you’re #feelingsad just think of a few of your #favoritethings and then it won’t seem so bad- #spargel #nobaldspotyet #yes #yellowsubmarine #whiskersonkittens 😊 being kinda #cuteforanoldguy #allbetternow time to back off a bit and just keep working on form until it comes naturally. Looking forward to powerlifting meet in September and getting ready with @uaestrongmancoach 💪 #powerlifting #oldguyswholift #training #senileandsexy

Thank you to everyone who has reached out and checked in on Mason and for the love & support we have received over the last few days 💛
•
Mason is doing “Stellar” this week as his team has said ✨
•
I’ve had a lot of people inquire what procedure he had and what was going on with him...
•
A little background.. Mason is almost 5 and doesn’t have solid stools. The boy may be picky but he EATS. He should not be having chronic diarrhea basically his short entire life. We’ve had him tested for Celiac , tried going gluten-free, we do no dairy, and all tests have come back within normal limits. I’ve pushed for answers cause mama knows when something just isn’t right!
•
We had an X-ray of his abdomen back in October, which I never heard back from his GI doc. When I called to follow up the doc said he was constipated & really backed up. She advised we do a clean-out at home with Miralax. After 2 attempts and another abdomen X-ray to see how it went, the doc said she was still concerned with the amount of stool still inside him even after using Miralax. The next step was to do a clean-out at the hospital which they insert an NG tube and flush him out. Which is what we did this past weekend. Let me tell ya I NEVER wanna have to do that again! 😳  We basically changed soaked pull-ups every 15 mins or so, constantly changing pee pads and hospital bedding, ALL day and ALLLLLL night long for 3 days. 🤪😝 Mason did amazing through the entire process and won the hearts of the nurses ❤️
•
They think Mason is associating pain with pooping and is withholding it causing him to backup & clog creating “overflow seepage” which he can’t control and is also interfering with him potty training. We are now to do Miralax & Ex-lax daily to keep him regular and hopefully unable to withhold. ( if anyone has more natural remedies / or suggestions please let me know! )

I guess cats have a special radar that tells them exactly where to go when they need help. This cutie showed up limping and missing half of his tail 😿 #allbetternow #summerthecat #crazycatlady

Last night was hard. So hard. I felt like I was drowning (in vomit but still 🤣) but with some ranting and calming breaths we got through. It was not easy and I’ve spent all morning snoozing with Linky sleeping and Lilly on the iPad. There was a moment last night that is my rainbow and stars 🌟 he fell asleep forehead resting against mine hand on my face. Through the darkness and the rain is always light even if it takes a while to find it...

Dinner .... after a rough day #allbetternow
Our little Russy got a nasty tummy bug when I was in Adelaide and I snapped this pic while he was sleeping. He’s such a trooper and has bounced back fantastically but I just love this pic of him sleeping in the midst of it all. It’s really strange that the most awesome pic I have of him is also another that I took whilst he was sick and have printed on a canvas...maybe because it’s the only time he slows down enough for me to get a great photo.

Gave my mummy and daddy a scare yesterday. Poor Mimi had an allergic reaction to her injections and her face, eyes and jaw swelled up within minutes.... quick rush to vet and one more needle which thankfully made her better by the end of the night 💓 #mimi #chihuahua #instachihuahua #instapet #allergicreaction #swollenface #allbetternow

“I feel like bear looks” - someone had a deep cleaning of her inner ears today at the specialty vet. Poor baby had a lot of nasty stuff wedged down in her left ear. No wonder she kept getting reoccurring ear infections.  #dolce_vita_the_dog #allbetternow #pitbull #germanshepherd #dogsofinstagram #dogmomlife
It’s been one of those Mondays #allbetternow

I always felt a presence out there.. no specific face when I dreamed, just someone. Then one day, from a distance, in profile, no discernible features.. there she was & I knew, right away. I stopped in my tracks momentarily & then continued forward to meet her as planned.. trying to act #unshaken. That day.. the presence that I’d always sensed, finally had a face. 
Over the years she mentioned a couple famous people that others said she resembled. I never saw it & I think that bothered her a little. There was just nobody in the world like her.. no face I had ever seen, no soul I had ever known. I simply saw no resemblance to anyone else & I still don’t. She was unique to me.. #oneofakind. If I catch a glimpse of someone in passing now who reminds me of her in some way, it is always from the back or side.. no discernible features, just hair or walk or something vague. I can’t begin to imagine how many faces I have seen, how many people I have met in my life. How can one person stand out so much upon first meeting & how can that someone ever be #forgettable or #replaceable?? I was told that I made a similar impression... I don’t think I could have. 
So when others scoff at my #onceinalifetime.. at my #acceptance that there won’t be anyone else.. there is no way that I can make them understand.. so I don’t even try. “Don’t worry, you’ll find someone else.” I’m not at all #worried.. I’m #content in the knowledge that I won’t, no matter how open I am to it. It took a #lifetime to happen & then went too fast. I wasn’t prepared for it.. practically & certainly not mentally or emotionally & I’ll never get over it. There is only the ghost of her now, bumping around in my #dreams. #lovestories #home #homeless #isthatall #whythen #worththewait #imsorry #iwasbroken #allbetternow #toolate #soconfusing #idontunderstand #nosense
