48 hours after getting the new medicine, things are very much better. Today I actually felt almost human, and while there is still a little discomfort, it’s mostly gone. This evening, in fact, I stopped taking the prescription painkillers and went back to Tylenol.

Kitanzi says she’s glad to have me back.. She missed me while I was gone.

Thanks again for all the well-wishers and virtual hugs. You guys are the greatest bunch of friends.
