Comments: It was a wonderful week. I had some really bad insomnia and pain, but a lot of joy to offset it. Physical therapy and water aerobics are helping with the pain, but not with my sleep. I sometimes don’t fall asleep till 5 am, and sometimes I fall asleep right away. And no, the good sleep doesn’t coincide with days that I exercise. Still, there’s not much time left, and I know I can do it. Soon, I’ll get to hold her and this will all be worth it!
