I've reacted horribly to Codeine in the past, so I'm a little afraid of pain meds. I'd rather hurt a bit than deal with freaky dreams/hallucinations. So when we got home from surgery, I mostly let Heidi and Don ease my pain with their great pampering! I felt good enough to briefly uke it up with Don. Actually, I had planned on some pre-op strumming before surgery. I figured a gentle "Amazing Grace" followed by "Dueling Banjos" would give me just what I needed to make it through the day.
But I ran out of time in the morning. We were off by 8 and our "concert" waited until evening. I'm so jealous of that post-op girl in the photo... showing no signs of pain. I guess that girl was enjoying a little of her lingering anesthesia. I've been a little too sore for uke playing since.
Cancer to Covid
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast cancer and then I was done.
On March 17, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. Only this time, it was affecting more than me.
Coronavirus and Cancer! Both are evil, but neither can totally get me down... if I vent! I hope with Covid, I run out of complaints before 200!
