I eat and take a pain pill. Then I sleep.
I wake up. I eat and take a pain pill. I tend the cats and futz around the house. Ziggy, nursecat extraordinaire, paces around me, boxing my feet and nagging me to go back to bed. As the 4 hours comes to a close, the pain creeps up, reminding me it lurks behind the medical haze.
So, I eat and take a pain pill. Then I sleep.
