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….

Ended up

Because I wasn’t feeling well last Thursday night  and the lack of sleep from it I barely did anything Friday.  I did some laundry, cleaned out one of the litter boxes, emptied the dishwasher only to fill it up again. I made myself an early lunch of steak and potato and had yogurt.  I was not anxious to eat too much as my shoulder still hurt. I think the aches and pains are from the amount of cheese I had in the last couple of days.   I fell asleep for the afternoon watching the X Men double feature.   I did fold some of the clothes and sheets and put more laundry in.  You are probably wondering where all these clothes are coming from.  Some of them have been there a few days and needed refreshing. When I didn’t fold the clothes I watched TV.  I actually sat through Hawaii 5-0 haven’t done that in months.  It's a good show.  It has done a few cross overs with the NCIS franchise (mostly the LA show) now there is some discussion prompted by articles that that H50 will do crossovers …

REally Busy

I am so sorry I haven’t finished the weekend entries.  I just was too tired and Monday was busy.  I know I have my Florida adventures to write up but again.  Not enough time or energy lately.  
I am looking forward to next weekend as I am meeting up with Siduri and we are going to spend the day in the city and visit Peabody museum and have lunch.  On sunday is baby Giada’s Christening and I am really looking forward to that.  I haven’t met Giada yet but from the pictures her parents and grandparents post she is beautiful.
WE had some late night rain last night and early morning rain today.  We may have more as the week progresses but that’s okay.  Meteorologist Geoff Fox began his second week at his summer Gig at Channel 8 this week.  His first week went well even with some first time hiccups with the technology.  He is having a blast along with his colleagues and fans.
I received a letter from my pen pal Debi in Tampa and I did manage to read the whole letter in one sitting.  She is kee…

Busy Friday

I spent a couple of hours working on mail and sending out refunds for the afternoon mailing.  By the end of the morning I spent it working on scanning until the end of  the day.  I  don’t feel I got a lot done but I did have some problems with a couple of the batches.
I did make an appointment with Courtney the health coach for next week.  I was beginning to think I missed an appointment but when I checked with her I found that I hadn’t.  It will be on Wednesday at 4:30.
I wasn’t sure I could eat anything chewy yet so I had broccoli and cheese soup for lunch.  It was good and I did chew on the left side of the mouth with no problem but as usual I probably used both sides.  I had been drinking lots of water at least I tried.  I had some coffee.
It was also refrigerator cleaning day at work.  I had forgotten and manage to lose a new coffee creamer that I put in there from Thursday next time that happens I am bringing in a cooler  so I don’t waste three dollars.  It's already on the nex…
