Knock on wood...a lot

Mar 27, 2010

 I was able to spend the whole night in my bed last night for the first time since my surgery.  I've been so uncomfortable with this muscle pain that I'd wake up in the middle of the night and move to the couch.  Eventually I got so sick of the couch that I didn't want to go anywhere to sleep.  I would wish I could sleep standing up. 
Last night we decided I'd try my bed and although I woke up to move a couple times in the night I was able to stay and sleep until 8:30!  That's the most sleep I've gotten at one time since the hospital!  I have gotten up, gone to the bathroom, gotten my shake and now been at the computer for 20 minutes and still NO PAIN!!!  I'm thinking it will be there when I get up from the computer but this break has been a godsend for my mental stability!   It's like my body is saying "Just wait, I promise it will go away!!"
We are venturing out to a movie today with the family.  We're going to see Alice in Wonderland in 3D.  Lord give me the strength to not punch the people with movie treats.  I have trained myself for the last year or so that if I do go to a movie I only get a water so it shouldn't be bad as long as I eat my soup beforehand.  Here we gooooo!
