So, I've been laying around in pain for over a week now. It's really starting to wear me down.

I don't think we (meaning I) sufficiently appreciate when we are well, happy, and mobile. It's quite easy to view good as norm and ill or bad as cosmic injustice. I hereby vow to be truly grateful for any and every GOOD day from now on. This episode with my back was really rather scary. I definitely do not want this to become the new normal. Well, we'll see what the surgeon has to say. Stay tuned!
