I am free. Finally out of the harness that was keeping me from doing things for myself and was rubbing my underarms raw. Actually I've been out of it since yesterday. It truly is a wonderfully freeing thing. I can now change my clothes and shower at will. Never will I take those activities for granted again! Of course as with everything there is a downside. Not having the support of the harness, things are a bit more painful, but nothing I can't handle. Hey what's another pain in my life? I'm just adding them to the list. I thank God for Aleve during the day and Vicodin at night.
I even went back to work at McPadnett for 3 hours today and will be at the quilt shop for 4 hours tomorrow. It's nice to be earning a bit more money once again and it is nice to be back among those work associates. I went back to doing things at church last week and that was equally nice. So though healing still has a long way to go I am officially declaring this event of my life closed. Though I'm not back to full speed and won't be for a while yet there really isn't anything I can't do as long as I am careful. Well, I would enjoy a nice glass of red wine, but that will have to wait till I get off the Vicodin. I will use that as incentive.
So what will the next challenge be? What ever it is I hope it doesn't come around for a few weeks anyway. I would like life to settle back to at least a dull roar for a short while anyway.
