a day spent

Home from hospital
By all accounts the procedure was successful.

I sort of forgot the part about how I would feel worse before I felt better.  The anesthesia has worn off and the nerve is freakin' out because of the injection.  The nerve block is time released and I should start feeling better within 24 - 48 hours.  I am looking forward to a full night of sleep .... I am ever hopeful. 

In the meantime there was a panicked phone call from work.  A child skipping school - a debate about dinner and I am pretty much done. 

Tomorrow I start late. 

I am learning that a big part of why I react the way I do is out of fear.  If I focus on not being fearful, I can come at things from a calmer place.   It is unlikely the world is going to end due to this, that or the other crisis in my life.   It is hard.  To remember. 

I have taken the risk and submitted a photo for publication (outside my blog and flickr).  I am stretching.
