I am grateful:
previous )
13) that my car works, and my parking karma is generally good.
I've been living mostly without my car since moving, but when I need it, I'm very grateful that it's there. Oh, also very grateful that R. and I went out and had yummy food before the surgery. The memory of the reuben sandwish and latkes sustains me.

14) for dental insurance.
I had my wisdom teeth removed. OUCH!

15) that my mom got me a Magic Bullet.
I used to to make smoothies and to blend various foods while I was sick. I should use it more often.

16) for pain medication.
The G.A. drugs wore off, and I started really hurting.

17) that I got to see J. and K. (even though I was a sad, loopy gopher).
Also that Baja Betty's had Lobster Bisque that was super nummy. This was the peak of the swelling-- I looked rather ridiculous.

18) that my friends came over and painted ornaments and I had a great time for most of it.
Everyone was wonderful and supportive for the period of time when I just needed to curl up with my frozen peas on the couch. And we watched Bedknobs and Broomsticks!

19) for sick leave and an understanding boss.
I was still in a lot of pain, so I went to see the doctor again. I am also grateful that R. took the morning off to take me (can't drive on the drugs).

20) that I have many tools and lot of support to work through my emotions.
I sent a response to an email that was from someone in pain, and got a brusque response. I'm grateful that I can let go of it much easier than I would have in the past.

21) for the cessation of pain.
I actually had some pain-free time without drugs for the first time since the surgery. Unfortunately, it got worse in the evening, so I canceled plans to go sing with the chorus (which probably would have exacerbated things anyway).

Woohoo! I'm caught up to today!!
