I am so sorry for being MIA for so long, it feels like it has been an eternity since I’ve written and for that I sincerely apologize.
A lot has been going on for me personally and I fell into a little bit of a hole that I am happy to say I am starting to emerge from as we speak. 🙂
I will attempt to catch you up so we can move forward with more vigor and intention than ever! I have kept this topic off of my blog for months because it was a source of great anxiety for me but now that it is behind me, I feel safe to share!
A few months ago, while vacationing in Las Vegas with my family and best friend, I came down with a terrible stomach flu that landed me in the hospital. While I was there, they did a CT scan and discovered a large mass in my lower abdomen area. This came as a bit of a shock to me and was certainly not what I was expecting when I arrived at the hospital that day. Upon leaving the hospital, I flew back to Los Angeles and was left with the grueling task of countless doctor follow-ups, a slew of tests, fights with insurance companies, and finally the conclusion that I was going to need surgery to remove the mass. There were a lot of unknowns in terms of the origin, location, and prognosis of the mass and this had left me in a pretty much constant state of anxiety in the weeks leading up to the surgery. Finally, after what felt like an eternity for myself, family, and friends, I had the surgery this past monday. I went into the surgery absolutely terrified but I am ecstatic to announce that everything went perfectly, the mass was successfully removed and is benign, and I am on the fast track to recovery! I am so relieved and I want to get back on track with this blog, my life, and my health!
I feel so lucky and grateful for all of my incredible friends and family who were so supportive of me before, during, and after my surgery. I am so blessed and I could not have gotten through this without all of their support!
When it comes to our health and wellbeing, it is agonizing to realize just how delicate and precious life can be but it is often through our struggles that we realize how important it is to take care of ourselves. In truth, it was this struggle with my health that was the initial impetus for my own journey and the creation of this blog in the first place. So, as a tribute to myself and everyone out there reading my blog, I hope to inspire you to take control of your life and your health while I do the same. Perhaps our collective strength and consciousness will create beautiful and healthy results!
I am revved up and excited to be back in the game!
I’m sending so much love and appreciation to you all for sticking with me!
