Everyones blogs today are about looking up and moving forward except mine. 😦 I’m feeling a little low today. (just a little). I think it’s just a combination of things piled on top of each other. Once I can start taking care of a few of them the load will get lighter and I will feel better.
My little bird helped! He’s so cute and full of joyous song.
Work has been filled with details. Too many things that need to be dotted or crossed and too many people to chase around! I’ll feel better when I’m all caught up. There are some things that need to be taken care of and I do not have the skill set to do them. This frustrates me to no end! I dislike having to depend on other people when push comes to shove.
Went to the doctor again this morning for my mysterious (of course) back/rib pain. It still hurts to breathe. I have a bone scan scheduled for Monday to check and make sure there is no nasty metastasizing of anything we don’t want to see in a bone. She actually suspects a compression fracture. I went online and looked it up and one of the possible symptoms is the person gets suddenly, noticeably shorter! I measured myself, I am still firmly 5’2″. The nice thing about the bone scan is that it will be all of my bones. So top to bottom we’ll see anything untoward, I hope they give me a copy. She gave me a copy of my xray results just the document not the picture and it said “mild gentle curvature of the thoracic spine convex to the left is unchanged”. How weird is it that I completely forgot that in some test the found out my spine curves the wrong way at the top? My body is just bizarre with all of the things that have shown up as “birth defects”. It also hurts to laugh. That’s not nice at all! I love to laugh.
I’ve also been very very sleepy this week and that always makes me nervous. I think it’s just from the unbearable amount of pollen dropping from the trees.
I have also eaten LOTS of food! And some of it is food that a month ago would have made me ridiculously sick! SO THERE! I had one mild bit of ooo, shouldn’t have eaten the Thai Food but even that wasn’t too bad. I think I’m almost healed. I think in one more month I’m going to be eating a big old salad!
My husband is leaving for Milan on Monday. If you’re from Toledo you assume I mean Milan (pronounced MY-lan) Michigan. If you know us you know I really mean Milan (pronounced mi-LAN) Italy. I probably could have gone on this one with a little more notice. It’s only 10 days, but there is just too much going on to leave the country on a whim. And if I’m going to spend that much money I would really like to stay at least a full two weeks!
Sometimes it helps to just look at things differently.
