Tuesday, September 21st Update from Joni: Whether it’s the way I sit, or my corset that bites, it can cause terrific pain — and lying down doesn’t always help. Such was the case the night before last when pain made sleep almost impossible. I was the “watchman who waits for the morning,” longing for day…
