Happy Friday, Readers. How was your week? Let me know in the comments below. 🙂 Let’s get to know each other a little more, eh?
I’m in surgery-scheduling limbo right now; which is totally okay. I will be patient. I will wait. And I will take heart and build courage knowing it will be scheduled soon and on the books.
I’ve had a very painful week. I met with my colo-rectal surgeon to discuss surgery plans on Tuesday. He also performed a rectal exam because I was complaining of some additional pain. Just having finger and that butt-speculum (is there a technical term for it?) in there for an instant caused an intense flare of my lower left abdominal pain that lasted for a few days. I’ve popped NSAIDs and Tramadol all week. Today seems to be the first day since without *much* pain.
I know it can be hard to stay positive when all you’re doing is hurting. It can be frustrating, demeaning, and downright depressing.
But hold on tight. Talk to someone. And don’t let go.
“The only real battle in life is between hanging on and letting go.”

You are definitely strong enough to hang on. And if you feel like you can’t, I’ll be right here to grab your hand and help. Just let me know.
