Pain and reprieve

I have had an extremely painful day. It has been rough. I have been absolutely miserable. I have been trying to keep up with my meds but it just wasn't cutting it. Dave was tempted to go get my pain killers at the pharmacy, but those make me so sick. My doctor wanted me on Tylenol but finally this afternoon Dave gave me another blessing and I went with my prompting and pulled out the ibuprofen and what a difference it makes. I feel like I am going to survive. I should have taken it sooner, but I was trying to follow the doctor's orders. I am so thankful for medicine, for the reprieve from pain. Such a wonderful thing. I still have a road to travel in my recovery, but I can see light at the end of the tunnel. This too shall pass.
