Sonics in the OR- my surgeons know my body needs music:

The surgeries are to restore the medial and ulnar nerves in my left  hand/arm.
My nerves’ conductivity is damaged from decades of wheelchairs, crutches, canes,
cross-country skiing and “stand biking”!
My left hand is numb.
The situation must be attended to because  the condition is progressive.
If not attended at this time, I will lose use of my left arm!
I will then have the option of applying for being the home plate of baseball teams.
“Run! Run! Please, don’t step on my face!” 🙂

We decided to schedule the surgeries between the end of kayak season
and
beginning of cross-country ski season!
NO USE of my  post-op hand/arm for SIX weeks- THIS will be fascinating!
Nerve surgery is a beast-quite different from the joint/prosthetic procedures
in my repertoire of experiences!

Controlled.
Fear.
Victim.
Cycles.
Roller coaster.
Habits.
Uncertainty.
Patterns.
Conscious choices.
One’s own choices that uphold their core values- no influence.
Telling the truth to one self.
Truth leading, following the truth.
Improvisational.
Upholding the unrepeatable gift of WHO you are.
Breathing JOY.
Courage.
Compassion.
Awake.
Amazing Grace.
