Quiet time for me for who knows how long?

I have been incapacitated for about 8 days now, unable to walk, sit, stand.  Food is not attractive to me at this time either.

Pain is my unwanted companion, ever present, but unwanted.

I yearn for the day when I can walk, sit and stand again.

Ah well, it is another way to learn more patience I suppose.

They are putting a urgent request for home care for me tomorrow morning so hopefully that will help. I cannot do my regular chores or look after myself well.

My doctor has been away two days so could not get better pain meds but her nurse will bring it to her attention first thing in the morning.

The first ones were very bad for me (Tylenol 3) and they did not even touch the pain.

I hope that I can get something to ease this more than unpleasant pain.  It is debilitating to say the least.

Thanks for dropping by.  It was wonderful to have two friends drop by, Rosemary to pick up my mail downstairs and Janet to do my washing for me.

I am so blessed with good solid friends.

Thank you Andreas. You are very kind. I have always been an independent type of person so it is hard for me to let go and let others help me. I am most grateful for people's prayers thoughts and good wishes as well as the many practical things that people near me are helping me with.
