I am still:
1) in pain and discomfort. I have to admit, a good deal.
2) resting. It is mostly all I do.
3) writing at least a half hour a day. Given that it does not increase or decrease my pain, I might as well take in the sense of meaning it gives me. It is not going to be my best work, but it does not have to be.
4) steadied by the love of my sweetheart
5) lifted by the warmth of my friendships
6) inspired by the scholars I work with
7) comforted by my dogs
8) needing it all, right now.
