Last night, I had grandiose ideas about what I was going to accomplish today. This was to be the real starting point for my new recovery plan. Only at 0430, after fitfully sleeping, pain woke me. I took a painkiller and the light sleeping pill the doctor gave me specifically for these middle of the night awakenings. The medication didn't seem to help. Two hours before I would normally get up, I lay in bed unwilling to move as electric fire coursed through my limbs. An hour after consciousness I groaned and went for the coffee pot. Instead of the grand start, today will instead be the challenge; can I accomplish a full day on my recovery plan with my body working against me?
