Pain is my friend. Pain tells me that I need to slow down and take better care not to get “over hurt” by her. Pain lets me know that healing is taking place. Pain demands respect. It will kick you upside the head if it feels you are trying to ignore her. She will get the better of you if you don’t heed her warnings. Pain tells you when to STOP what you’re doing or how you’re doing it. Pain is my friend and my enemy. I would be up and walking if it weren’t for the pain. But then I would hurt myself without even knowing it! Thank the heavens for PAIN!
9/14/23 Came through with flying colors
All my worries were for not. I flew through the surgery and got right up to go to the bathroom once I woke up. I was worried that I wouldn’t wake up but when I woke up, I breathe a sigh of relief and settle prayer. it’s been three days since my surgery and I’m doing very well. The pain is controlled and I’m doing my exercises like I should. I still could use people to take me to PT.
