Looks like you need some pictures!

We just had an amazing storm roll through! The wind blew so hard that it pushed rain through the window seals on windows that don’t open. I hope everyone is safe and sound.

The pictures did not do it justice.


Yay…look where I spent the morning.  This is my ENT’s office. I had my hearing retested. No real change though they did find out that the previous test was wrong about one thing. My ear drums are moving. The problem is that my ear canals are abnormally small. I can not tell you how shocked I am that something else on me is not built the way it’s supposed to be. (NOT!) They had to use infant tips on the ear drum machine to get a correct reading. So, I am a candidate for a hearing aid. Pretty excited to think I may be able to get super sleuth hearing. I just found out how much they cost. Yikes!

Pretty boring shot here. Not much exciting in this kind of office.


This is the sign explaining that my doctor uses a microphone and a virtual assitant.  Kind of cool.


I never think it’s a good sign when a doctors office has signs telling you their rules and practices all over the waiting room. Just makes me nervous.


I don’t know why my storm pictures ended up front & end!

Sorry for the boring stuff!  I promise it will get much more exciting next week.

I’m so nauseated. Every time I think about it I get nauseated. I just ate a granola bar.

I want to yell at everyone at work.  Just take care of things! You do this for ME because I just found out I have cancer.  I haven’t yet.  But I might.

Told my husband last night.  He did very well. I need to tell my sister and my daughter.  Those are the big ones that need to hear it from me before they hear it from someone else. I’ll tell the guy at work because I can’t be hiding these phone calls.

I am really startled by the up and down of emotions right now.  When I’m down, I feel so down.  Just tired and grey.  When I’m up, it’s all positive and “we’ll just get through this”  I am however completely unable to focus for more than a few minutes on anything. I can’t read, I can’t watch TV. I can’t work. Well, I haven’t been able to work all week. I just want to walk out. I want to not deal with this job right now.

Playing phone tag with the gyno/oncologist. Their phones are out today so they called me from a cell phone while I was at a different doctors appointment. Now I wait for them to call back. I worry about pain. I’m not fond of pain. My husband looked terrified at the thought of them taking out my cervix. I told him it was okay.

They took my blood pressure at the ENT, 148/88.  Not as bad as I might have expected.
