October 5th, 2018
Tif left the hospital on Saturday (9/29/18) and was sent home to rest and recuperate. She said goodbye to MSK and her beautiful view of the East Side of NYC and returned to the beautiful views of her home and Rye, NY.
She didn’t have a lot of downtime though because some of her Team Tif (TT) friends sponsored a group of fellow TT members to a 5K walk/run at the Archbishop Stepinac Family Fun Run that took place on Sunday morning (9/30/18), and YES Tif showed up to cheer them on AND YES that was one day after her hospital stay. No rest for this gal!
And as her mom and dad always told her
And so she did!
Even the Stepinac mascot, the Crusader is now a full-fledged member of Team Tif 🎉
The fun run was a lot of fun, lots of TT members came out to show support and the love, prayers, and healing continue to take place one step at a time 😉
Later that afternoon…
Sunday afternoon (9/30/18) one of Tif’s childhood friends, Phil M., popped in with his gorgeous daughters who brought a traditional Sunday Italian family dinner, even had homemade gravy, all for Tif and her family to enjoy. Was a wonderful ending to the long week Tif endured – all good though 👍
You Don’t have to go fast… you just have to go!
Tif did not let any grass grow under her feet. She continues to go out for walks every day and even made it back to her old stomping grounds, Playland. Her walks may not be as long or a vigorous as they had been prior to surgery but they are happening!
A few of quotes on the benefits of exercise and walking that cannot be denied:
“Walking is man’s best medicine.” — Hippocrates
“An early morning walk is a blessing for the whole day.” — Henry David Thoreau
“Walking is the best possible exercise. Habituate yourself to walk very fast.” Thomas Jefferson
Or as Nike likes to tell us, “Just Do It!”
And the REST of the week…
Tif is hanging low and doing what the doctor said – she is resting, healing and staying positive.
Tif is thankful for her TT members and all they are doing to support her and her family. The delicious meals, baked goods, homemade soups, cards, texts, calls, etc. are making her days brighter and filled with positive vibrations.
*Note – Rastafari use of the term “Jah” or sometimes “Jah Jah” as a term for the Lord God of Israel.
Until our next post please keep the positive vibrations coming!
