Where I've been
No pics to show since the month has been spent working, resting and trying to get to September 26th for a total hip replacement without losing my mind and body to the pain. I have such empathy for those that live with chronic pain, like my Jim, who is doing his best to bring clarity to his mind and make his body strong to take care of me during my recovery. Even as a nurse, I never realized the strength it takes to face each day knowing the struggle it will take to overcome the pain and loss of ability to complete the simple tasks that use to be so easy, I've been walking in his shoes, and only for a short while and I don't know how he's done it. I have my quilting when I can and creative thoughts to pursue in the future, my circle of internet friends that keep me happy, and so it goes, aother month, a day at a time.
