“Fray”

The WordPress Daily Post photo challenge spoke to me today. I am the epitome of the word “fray.”

I am both noun and verb. I am fight and struggle, as well as a sight that could frighten most anything away.

Last week I had two brain surgeries in five days. I spent a large part of the week in ICU, and now I can finally function out of the bed. In my opinion “fray” is strength and filled with positive meaning. I will overcome this with time. These are my battle scars.

  8. Of course you will overcome this 🙂 I scrolled in a rather desultory way through the Fray photo entries this evening and yours was the first that called out to me and the first I clicked on. I am excited to come across your writing, which I am really enjoying, and wish you all the best for your recovery x x

    Your poor head! And a perfect example of “fray.” May the surgery have been successful, and may the scars become a distant memory over a healthy brain, under a gorgeously thick head of hair.

  17. It is so hard to be brave all the time. Thank you for sharing a little of what you are going through and showing your wounds. I am at the three month point of recovery from only one brain surgery and I can tell you that with time and patience (& lots of pain meds), things have greatly improved. I wish you health, patience, strength and good healing.
