A glass of water and a half a bagel with peanut butter start my morning (the bagel is to better keep the Celebrex down, doncha know). Pain today is much better--though I did take one pain pill when I got down to the couch. Wow. There is a decided difference in the effect of pain meds when you have a lot of pain vs when you take them as you're supposed to (which is as the pain is building--before it gets to raging inferno). The pain is pretty much gone, but so is my leg, and, oh look, I think my head is missing too. This must be the "Do Not Operate Heavy Machinery" part of the morning--and here it's time to head to the studio!
Today is a studio and computer day--more computer than studio. I have the last load of the healthcare company awards to fuse, a random piece to slump, and four or five orders to ship. Well, I won't actually be doing anything much other than laying out the glass for the fuse load and entering the shipments into the UPS online system. The assistants will be carrying all the glass to the kilns, packing and putting out the boxes to ship, and generally performing all toting of barges and lifting of bales. Then I shall nap.
Thank you to Mom and Dad Griffith and to Keith and Mike for the lovely flowers. My parents are off kayaking and I haven't even been able to let them know I've had surgery yet.
