I slept for seven hours last night. It was the longest sleep in recent memory. It capped off the second straight day without arthritis meds or an over-the-counter pain reliever for knees or back. I doubt that’s a coincidence. I was told to expect only thirty to forty percent improvement from the Christmas Eve shot. But two days of no pills and real sleep was worth the price of admission all on its own.
And what did I do with this rested body first thing in the morning the day after Christmas? I hauled it down to the martial art shop to buy my Siheng Aaron his first staff. It was snowing as we drove over; it stopped by the time we left. My son and I shared a joint sigh of relief that self-training should go on as scheduled tonight. My fingers are crossed on still feeling good ten hours from now after first training session since the shot. Cross them with me, please! 🙂
