I am home!

I got home on Monday but I do not have enough energy to write much yet. My mom might help me soon. I feel so sick and tired, like the flu or a hangover. I am so happy the surgery was successful but it is hard to be grateful when I am in the midst of pain. Maddie stopped by this morning and her words were very helpful. I need to remember that this will pass. Pain never feels temporary while it is happening.

That's very interesting what Maddie said. John Kennedy said he could take any amount of pain as long as he knew it would pass. So what agonizes you is awareness of the future is-ness of the pain. JFK unfortunately had a chronic back condition. But you can bank on your pain being a past memory-- just a matter of time. jk
