Haiku Bones-breath

Resting Silently
In the space between two breaths
Is eternity

Something tells me I've been here with you ;)

Great haiku. You're really good with those, but then again I think you're good with words.

How's the butt and other problems?
Is it warming up in OK at all?

Word veri=nestl :)

I have moments of fiesty, and moments of not agony.

What I miss the most, and I'm trying not to complain, but I do miss it so I think it's ok to say it-is being able just to walk into the kitchen for a drink of water, or go to the bathroom. Right now every thing has to be planned around when my back is not in spasm.

I can predict somewhat from my last does of ibuprofen-but I have to have a list of what I want to accomplish with each pill-and start with the most impotant items first in case I can't finish.

Right now we are talkiing tasks like:
Feed dogs. Fill water bottle. Go to bathroom (me).

Eating is a fill in activity if I get the list done and if my stomach allows.

Yesterday was a great day_ i ate three small meals. Today it's 6:30 and I've managed a handful of peanuts and a few pork rinds.

Yet, I am getting better, and I am determined not to complain, because I AM getting better.

Nice haiku, Debra. I hadn't thought of this before, but now it seems scary thinking about that space.
I have stopped breathing for no apparant reason. That is very scary too. It is a little hard to get started again.
