7am trying to lift myself out of bed, well that was a mission in itself. My ribs (left side) were a 7/10 on the painscale, so I decided to roll out of bed instead. It was the only way I could get up for the morning meeting at 7:30am.
Had the morning meeting and breakfast along with meds, I did mention about the pain to the staff. They advised me that I see the doctor, so we went to the Centre and had a visit from a gentleman that spoke to us that came from... [read more]

Woke up to our morning meeting, breakfast and medication.
We left for the Centre and had our Thoughts and Feelings session, which was a nice way to start things off - by knowing how everyone is doing.
