a day spent
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.
