I learned three very important things yesterday.
The first; That Lumpy is benign.
The second; The place I mentally send myself to stay calm during painful medical procedures has changed. It is no longer the rolling hills of my childhood in Vermont.
I now find myself in a soft rocking chair in the solace of Riley's room. Just the two of us, quietly nursing.
That is where I am at peace and where I draw the strength I need to fight the battles my body insists on putting me through.
Finally; There is actually a much better route to Trader Joe's then going through downtown Worcester. (For the record it's pronounced Wusta).
...well thank goodness for that.
