First thing (6:00 AM) workout: 20 minutes: 50 low rise steps and 15 minutes supine including air conducting and weights, but could not do planned physio “rackety row” later in the morning: nauseous even in the wheelchair going to the gym, had to cancel. Plan is to repeat today’s dawn workout tomorrow; my dawn workout didn’t trigger nausea (altho it resulted in two Fentanyl booster doses).
Continue to be mentally active (overactive?) but physically confined to bed, except at dawn, by pain and nausea. But at dawn,
…then no planets strike,
No fairy takes, nor witch hath power to charm,
So hallow’d and so gracious is the time.
I’m also not surrounded by Chinese families doing their Chinese thing, taking care of their dying men.
In the Shakespeare quote, Horatio was talking of the nights around Christmas but for me dawn at any time of the year is a healing time.
