Right now the forest along my street is blooming. It’s really lovely. My job at this point is to take walks in the forest whenever possible. This is me the day after I got home from surgery doing my “climb”.
I have now done the walk assisted only by my cane (and my friend). Today I hope to do more. I have had almost no pain since the first day and I’m happy for that as I don’t like taking opiates, though at night they’re helpful.
My forest has been navigating the complexities of this, from the recognition of the problem, to accepting the inevitable, to finding a doctor, to prepping for the adventure, to the adventure — all a big forest.
And, maybe tomorrow, I’ll be able to change the subject…
