The blood has begun to flow, the pain has subsided...the journey has begun.
Wish me luck.
I wonder if I can survive another sleepless night, maybe I can. I've already gone through this pain, lack of sleep, little food, and I am still here.
Oh, and no, getting drunk last night wasn't in the cards. The pain was so intense I whimpered as I crawled off to bed.
I hope this is all over by morning. Please God!
And so it goes - we pray.
