Starting May Out Right

Doesn't look like much, does it? I'm opening a can of tomato sauce. What this represents, however, is that I am opening a can of tomato sauce

pain free.

That's right. My wrists no longer hurt and I can do things like turn the crank on the can opener without stopping every quarter turn because it hurts. I don't exactly know when the pain stopped. It just went away and I just noticed it last night when I was making supper.

In the morning, particularly on Saturday, when my pills are spread out in front of me, I can feel sadness that life revolves around a little white dot that tastes horrible. And then, last night, it became all worth it. I have strength back. I have range of motion back. I have my life back. As we head into the warm weather months, I couldn't ask for a better gift.

Beverage:  Huckleberry tea
