I woke this morning and
didn’t move my head
I was at just the right
angle to breathe
and resting at the perfect spot
between the pain sites.
And I lay there blinking sleep away,
thinking, “How quickly I learn,
these habits I don’t want.”

I’m home.  I’m thoroughly enjoying the pain medication they sent me home with.   The treatments seem to have gone well, but we won’t be able to see any results for several months.   

In the meantime I’m resting (again) and waiting for the pain&medication head fog to clear up.  So, for now I’m sitting on the couch, with a blanket, a couple of books, my laptop, and the TV remote.
