I am amazed and thankful for the great decrease in pain from yesterday. The doctor told me I should expect a pretty high degree of pain for 10-14 days. I was up with my grandson at 1am, did a load of laundry, took a sleep aid and a couple of drinks to try to get to sleep. Walton, 4, had another accident at 7am. Very unusual. What picture I'm trying to paint is I didn't get much sleep. How do you heal without nourishing sleep? It was marvelous to feel so great. Many times today I have said a prayer of thanks. I had my hair appointment as scheduled, went shopping for a new outfit, and had a pedicure all without pain. I have to admit I didn't do a band workout with Dave today. My DH said he was going to throw my band away. I might agree with him this time. LOL. The scale was not so kind though. Up? How is that possible??? There is a long walk I think tomorrow. I'm so happy to be able to walk, bend and even breath without gasping , that I'm not down about the scale #'s. I'm not tempting fate for now. My comfort is paramount. You might understand that ideology better if you knew I was a hospice nurse for 20+ years. We were pain management professionals. I believe in quality of life!!
