Today I did not wake up to the alarm. Instead, the thing that woke me up was pain. I have the most terrible pain in my left arm today. Dr. Khan told me that it is epicondylitis, part of fibromyalgia. It is the kind of pain that makes you cry. In addition, my legs hurts and my right upper shoulder blade is throbbing. Not a good day today.
And what makes it worse is that tonight is my daughter, Stephanie's orchestra concert at school. You see, Stephanie is my baby and she is a senior this year. She plays the cello, and is the first chair in the orchestra, both concert orchestra and chamber orchestra. Outside of school, she is in two quartets, and two other orchestras; one orchestra is made up of teachers and their star students. She is a very talented musician, and wants to make music her life.
Anyway, back to tonight. She is playing a SOLO in the chamber orchestra; her first solo ever at school. And I just cannot miss it. Our daughter, Sarah, who is in her first year of college and is about an hour away, is coming home just for this event. So you see, it really means a lot to Stephanie that we will all be there except for her brother, who has to work.
I just cannot miss this concert. I have missed others before, believe me, because of fibromyalgia or one of my other illnesses, but I can't miss tonight. This is her last year of high school and concerts. She will be sooooo disappointed and sad if I do not go.
So please, everyone, if it is your thing to do, please pray for me, that I get better and can get to this concert. Please do that for me, I would appreciate it very much. I will let you know tomorrow if I made it or not.
Bless you all and bye for now,
