Pain, Patience, Comfort and Anxiety
Monday, February 17, 2014
I have an ouchy shoulder this morning. It's bothering me a little more than usual. A massage would feel so good. My neck is stiff as well, also not a surprise, but more noticeable since my shoulder hurts too. It's like, well what else is going to hurt today? Then I notice that when I stand up my left foot has a twinge of pain, and my knees, well, pain there is nothing knew.
Maybe some relaxation exercises will help so I'll try that and some stretching will help too, but it's hard to move when things ache. Other than that... I'm fine. Another friend of mine is having surgery today, but not until 1PM. Waiting is hard. I expect I'll be in touch with her grown children off and on during surgery, while we all anxiously await good news from the OR. In the meantime I'll be working through my aches and pains and anxiety. Hopefully by the end of the day I will have a friend out of surgery and healing, relieved kids, and a clean desk.
