4am Again

With alarming regularity here we are again. An early morning trip to the bathroom -a cup of tea and the pills. 4am is a meeting time when Nigel patiently helps me and makes the best cuppa ever and offers me my pills to continue with more hours of pain fee sleep.

I hear the wind and rain and take comfort in the Normality of the familiar noises outside. Inside the routine has changed dramatically as we value pain free time.

4 days of having my right arm encased in a plaster cast with differing levels of pain emitting from it.The weight is almost a comfort strangely .

Tea and pills swallowed – pillows redone and the warm pinky feeling of pain ebbing away envelops me once again
