Since it wasn't "hospital" bad yet, I decided to tough it out and see what happened. I have a stash of pain meds from previous bouts, so I broke one in half and hoped for a halfway decent nights sleep.
And that's exactly what I got, a halfway decent nights sleep, fitful at best.
About 5am, I decided to stop trying to sleep, and the rest of today has been one of those days where unreality reigns, napping, dozing, half aware.
Finally about 2:00 it suddenly alleviated, and I figure the worst had passed. Still a bit sore but infinitely more comfortable, I've spent the rest of the day indulging in a marathon of Lost and taking a few pictures.
I suddenly realized that it had been raining,
But I'm kind of a sucker
for those little drops of water.
I like them a lot better in pictures
than on my head . . .
And I finally got a clear shot of a hummingbird.
Not a great shot, no action and very little color,
but at least it's in focus!
Now I think I'll have a cup of tea
and go back to bed.
