I guess you could say a fair bit has been going on in my life this year. After a decade working with the same company, I’ve decided to cut ties and try something new. When I figure out what that is, I’ll let you know! It’s a long involved story for one on one time if you care, but this was the right thing for me to do right now and although it’s a little scary in this economy, I don’t remember being happier in quite some time. My intentions … Continue reading
Okay, I can only guess at how long they’ve been awaited, but I have been very MIA of late. Nothing super exciting, but I suppose I should do a bit of updating here. The biggest thing of late has been re-doing my kitchen. I moved in to my current abode nearly 8 years ago. The kitchen at that time was little changed from 1988, when it was built. All the same appliances, but the burgundy paint was probably not so original. That was the only thing I changed then. Repainted … Continue reading
The last few days in Egypt, I had a cough, which was particularly rough when we got back to the smog of Cairo. I thought the smog was what started things, but as I looked back, it started before we returned to Cairo. Still, when I got back, it did improve (so was likely worsened by the smog). And since then, I kept waiting… for it to… get better… And it hasn’t, so I set up an appointment with my doctor. Went in today and she’s fairly confident it’s a … Continue reading
Surgery yesterday was both earlier than expected and longer than expected. I had gone home to pick up my Mom the day before and the phone rang at their house and I saw it was the hospital. I answered expecting they wanted to speak to me, but they asked for Mom. I gather they hadn’t gotten me at my house, as they talked to my Mom to let her know the surgery time was moved up an hour and a half. When they found out I was there, they spoke … Continue reading
Today was back to find out the results of the MRI. Has anyone ever gotten a concrete answer from these things or is just me? Well, I’ve got good news anyway. I have not torn or broken anything. Tendons all intact. Bones mostly intact. It appears, and the x-ray showed this, that I did chip a bone but not this time. Apparently some injury I don’t remember that may have come back to haunt me. I actually have pain in two places, one is the site of the aforementioned chipped … Continue reading
I’m not sure what brought this old parody song to my mind today, but I’m glad I live in a world where I can find anything on the internet. I remember listening to this in high school on the Doctor Demento radio show.
Not sure where the “no news is good news” thing comes from. I guess it has it’s good points, but as the continuing knee saga unfolds… I’m not sure I agree… After weeks of physical therapy, I went back to the orthopedist last week. I had improvement in physical therapy, but in the end, I had hit a plateau that I couldn’t seem to get around. The improvement just leveled off and stopped. And after weeks of that, the physical therapy people said it was time to go back. The … Continue reading
I had planned to go down and see some art at the Dogwood Festival this weekend as I have the past couple of years. However, the weather was just plain unappealing and I had no real desire to get out. Last week I started putting together a new website. I’ve only ever had a free one or that wee bit of space that your ISP provides. I quit updating
My knee is 80% better today. I talked to the doctor today – she called – what kind of weird parallel universe am I in?? She said
So, I saw the doctor today. Not my regular doctor who is sick but another in his practice. I was telling my Mom last night (appointment was yesterday but rescheduled because doctor was out) that I was kind of glad that I was seeing another doctor.
