Home From the War

The brain is so happy to be back at work.
The body is really complaining.
I felt great my first few shifts, but got my bootay kicked tonight.
It's hard putting the pedal to the metal after almost a year off for cancer treatment.
My right foot is very unhappy with me, the whole thing just aches, except for the toes, which are asleep and completely numb.
Most of the evening on the dining room floor, it felt as if the right foot would explode out of my shoe.
My ankles are huge.
I'm going to get in a hot bubble bath now, with a Mimosa, well, minus the sparkling, add ibuprofen.
Feels so good to be out in the world again,
my body
not so much.
