And even though I am back to taking two Endone tablets every 6 hours, I don't feel as dopey as I did couple days ago plus the leg pain is more controlled so win win for me right now.
Today I felt well enough to get up and have a really long shower, washing my hair and generally taking care of myself a bit better today and the whole shower thing might sound so simple and everyday routine to everyone but for me, well that's a whole story in itself but I won't bore you suffice to say its a challenge that has often beaten me but not today, one to me, zero to lymphoedema!
Today's photo challenge was "perfect" and I really struggled with this, perfection is such an elusive item to portray, by very definition of the word itself, to strive for perfection is a goal that is almost unattainable but I found a quote by the famous actor John Wayne and I combined it with a gorgeous photo I took a while ago of the most gorgeous sunset and the perfection aspect was the story behind the taking of the photo, I had been unable to fit in the car because of my legs for so long that I was becoming dangerously depressed and one day after being sick with cellulitis / lymphoedema yet again, Toni persuaded me to try and see if I could fit in the car yet and lo and behold I could this one evening, so she drove us around just nowhere in particular and as we were driving along, I saw this most beautiful sunset ahead of us and I was able to take some gorgeous pictures that embodied how happy how "perfect" this time out was for me.
One win for me, zero for lymphoedema!
