You know, I hate it when my damn horoscope is right. Don’t tell me there’s nothing to it. Just don’t even say it!
Take some advice from Buddhism and live in the here and now! Try to enjoy the heat of the moment and don’t worry too much about the future. Concentrate on what’s happening right this very second instead of what might happen somewhere down the road. Rest assured in the fact that you’re making wonderful memories that will keep you warm on some cold night. Do your best to be open and uncritical during the learning process — no one really knows any more than you do, Libra.
I went to see Sharon at the hospital yesterday and was a good patient advocate for her. Got her some stronger pain meds and somehow we managed to get the surgeon and the resident to come see her too. The surgeon was loathe to operate to remove her obstruction because of all the scar tissue issues making it a bit more risky for her . However, she called me at 11pm and let me know that they decided to go ahead and do the surgery as the blockage wasn’t seeming to clear on its own.
I just talked to her and she said she feels 100% better now. I’m sooo glad. I can’t imagine what kind of pain she must have been in. On a scale of 1-10 she was ranking it at a 9 so for a normal person’s 1-10 scale, it would have been a 27 or something hellishly unbearable.
So, keep sending her good thoughts, she still needs them. And I still have the sammich dog too. The cats are now coming out more and he is getting a bit more in the groove here, so I am hoping each day will get easier. He is a sweet dog and so very loving but just a big old doofus. And all the pets follow me around the house as if I were the living embodiment of the Pied Piper. Whee. So veddddy nice to be loved, innit?
I continue to slug around like I have been doing all week – thankfully, going to see Sharon yesterday got me up and around; otherwise, I would have been back in bed by mid-afternoon. What is my deal???
I was thinking of bopping into work today for a bit (yes, file this under “Am I totally insane or what??”) just to get through my email and stuff. I may or may not do it depending on the level of slugosity I am feeling. At present, we are about 5 on the slug-o-meter.
Good day to you, sir!
