it’s an ill wind that blows no good*

This was supposed to be the week I was healed enough to start sitting. That was what I was originally told, six weeks from surgery I’ll be able to sit up again. The Doctor decided I need another month off my bum because I’m not healing. “That’s radiation for ya,” he says while putting a solution on my skin that burns it so it will hopefully scab over. The burning lasted a few hours that day, but worse than that was the frustration of another month of bed rest. I don’t mind resting, but spending any length of time without a creative outlet is maddening.  I’ve been making art for so long that I don’t know what to do with myself when it’s taken away.

My solution is to turn to poetry and songwriting. I only just started writing poetry last year and while I’m very much a novice I still enjoy it a lot. I have some good friends taking care of my sanity by sending me music they created that I’m writing lyrics for. May turn out to be a hot mess, but all I really care about is having fun right now. I’ve always wanted to be a part of creating a song, and now I have the opportunity to sit around and write all day.

    Urgh! You poor thing. No imagining how frustrating it must be to not be healing at the pace you should be healing.
    I hope the next few weeks fly by for you and that you are able to get on your feet soon.
    Keeping you in my thoughts. xxoo
