I slept real late, maybe noon. I decided lying down most of the day might help my neck/shoulder issues. I think it did. The pain is not bad at all. I also thought a swim would help. That too was beneficial. My goal around treatment is to do as much as I usually do using ice and heat, as needed to manage the inflammation.

Every time I decide that over the counter NSAIDs aren’t giving any pain relief, I have a day where they’re working. Go figure.

J is moping around because she has no biological children. I love her. She gets that. Still, with all the over the top Great To Be A Mom rhetoric and displays today, it is hard not to feel left out. I’m fixing dinner. Hope that helps.
