Diggin’ It

This is no time for excuses, I think to myself.  I’m back from surgery for a hernia repair, one of many.  This was a particularly difficult one since it was repairing a repair of a hernia.  I landed up with a swelling, called a seroma, that was the size of a football.  I’m still walking […]

TRY TO REMEMBER

I’ve been seeing the man in the moon into the wee hours of the morning.  Every time I try to sleep, I can only do so for a couple of hours and then I’m up again.  I’m told I have very dark circles under my eyes.  I didn’t need to be told. My mirror reflects […]

ENABLE YOURSELF

I Danced At The Ball

I’ve been away at the ball, dancing around and around with multiple Doctors at one facility or another for over a month.  I danced to their tunes for a while but I didn’t like the music they were playing.  I decided to cue up my own music and they looked around in confusion.  I held […]
