Now what??

Discouraged today.
I decided to have rib resection surgery because of the arm pain.
Now that I'm weaned down to bare bones with the pain meds, the arm pain is back today with a vengeance!

This blog is not about whining.
It is about recording for my future memory and possibly the benefit of others struggling with TOS my journey.

Today is a bump in the road.

I am a firm believer in being good to ones self when you're healing.
Being gentle, talking to yourself in positive ways.
Today the pain has my thoughts all knotted up and I feel restless and stuck.

I reach for a pain pill and pray for relief.

But most of all I pray this does not suck me down the hole of despair.
I want to still have hope this surgery was good for me, today is just a fluke.
