Mid Week Reflection

I can’t believe it has been a week since I have been home from the hospital for the lung biopsy.  Actually I can considering I am not back at work yet and the wound area is easily irritated by having things on it or sweat, you name it go for it.  I don’t go back to work until the 14th and that’s after I see Dr. F on the 10th.

In the mean time I have other medical appointments all related in some way that I am making and attending to.  Yesterday was the Lupus/Rheumatology Doctor.  Today is the GI appointment, tomorrow is the cardiologist.

It was very nice having my brother here taking care of me when I got back.  He took care of shopping, getting some meals, keeping an eye on Sky and Tiger, and other things.  He didn’t have to do anything with the wound care as we had a home healthcare come in.  The next time is Friday.  I am thinking my brother may be coming back for the cardiology appointment but I am not certain on that one. 

On Monday I turned 53 and it was quite nice and very quiet.  I had lunch with my sister at a nice restaurant in town, got a few cards, and got myself some ice cream from the local Sundae House.

I am hoping that by the time I see the cardiologist tomorrow he would have signed and faxed the FMLA forms for this month.  That and the Handicapped Parking tag I am waiting on. This is just many things I have to start looking into if my health is going to continue to decrease or have more problems than in the past.  The Lupus Doctor feels I am more than qualified to get on SS Disability with all the issues I Have had and could have.  I just don’t know if I want to stop working or if I am ready. 

This may be one of those topics that I need to discuss with Debra along with the family pow-wow.  Not sure exactly what that will entail.

The kitties were very active this morning. After they were fed and I was watching TV they ran around chasing each other and then they did “their own thing”.  Tiger seems to enjoy sleeping behind the couch in the living room and just a short time ago went upstairs to do her morning/afternoon nap under the bed.  Sky was meowing looking for her but now is quiet.  I suspect he is lying somewhere too.

Well I have some stuff to do before going off to the Dr.  I will see you later….

Yay Friday

I am so glad today is Friday.I woke up early again but stayed in bed for a bit.I didn’t lay down again after feeding the cats today.I did a little straightening up here and there.
I got a message from Livia last night letting me know I dated the check wrong and wanted a fresh one.I left another one with today’s date on it.I am just not sure when she is coming over.I didn’t want the house to look messed up after all the work she did.
The ride in was a bit anxiety filled.Several times I thought I was going to plow into the back of several cars.I wasn’t speeding but the cars in front of me didn’t seem to move.I was glad to get to the garage and then to the office.
In the morning I did some refunds and then spent time working on the readdress mail.It was about that time my guardian angel suggested I needed to do them (No kidding) and then as the afternoon progressed.She asked me to write up all that needs to be done because SR was upset that both of us were taking the beginning of next month…

i waited

I had been waiting since 10 to hear from AH my Easter Dinner host about dropping off the main dish to store in my refrigerator overnight.I was expecting her to call before coming. Well she called me around 4:30 to let me know that she didn’t need to come over she had managed to clean her own refrigerator.I had things that I wanted to do.
Liz ended up coming here for coffee and we got caught up with family news for the next hour.She brought me a choc bunny and flowers, and some sweets for breakfast and or desserts.She had mocked horror when I told her how the kitties were able to go in to a closet.She told me what was going on with her SIL in Waterbury and how this and the ride up to Waterbury was a bit much for Nelson.
I have been doing a few things here and there.Like folding clothes, doing the dishes, and very shortly cleaning up the bathroom-again.Earlier had the TV on and did some net browsing.
Oh and around 10 am this morning April the Giraffe finally had her baby.I can’t believe I …

I swear

I swear every time I go to do my taxes.I have issues whether it is internet connections, firewalls, or I have problems with my passwords.I started to get it set up around 8 and ended up using and I still have to fix it.Didn’t put info in that is needed.Will have to do it soon.
So Easter at my friend’s house.I have mixed feelings about it.It was a little hectic and awkward for me.The food phenomenal.The behavior of some really rude.I was asked to set the table yet this one woman who has only been here (in the country) five years doesn’t move.I didn’t want to wait for her to finish cutting something that could have been done in the kitchen.A few people spoke in Greek and when they know how to speak English whether it is limited or not.Everyone left me at the table with the old Greek lady who barely spoke English.I really didn’t appreciate it.The hostess interrupts her daughter while the daughter is speaking and doesn’t say excuse me.I let Roberta know when we were leavin…
