April 4th I check in at the imaging department at OHSU. On the 5th I rest and finish any and all last minute life stuff. The next day on the 6th of April I have my official surgery. I stay in the hospital overnight, then assuming all goes well a few days later they insert my power pack, then 2-3 weeks later I get plugged in and tuned up. They’ve provided 3 days worth of housing free of charged which is a blessing indeed . Unfortunately the who process is two surgeries and a recommended 30 day healing and stabilization period. These donations will go directly to the lodging and direct care that OHSU and insurance doesn’t cover. Any and all donations are impactful and I can’t express my gratitude and thanks for all of you. Please share the link even if you can’t help monitarily . All things done with love and light will be successful. Always and with some luck, science and faith I’ll see you all on the other side of this. If not please remember to always be brave be bold and thrive in the life you have.
As the pain of the day grows long on my frame I miss the words that kept me strong.
I sit and trade one demon for another, my manic fades with the sun only to give way to the dance of my limbs
The twisted torture of this disease
I yearn for words to take me to another place, gentle guidance to a space next to your heart.
I wish only to dwell in the hollows of the places you seldom go, come see me as you please
As the poisons of this day drag me towards the nights end
I wish I wait but soon I will be done.
Happy Sunday everyone, I have to repeat the words of the day to keep myself on track so you might as well day they with me. “Be brave,Be bold and Thrive in the life you have”
