Last Day

Well yesterday I was up early and went off to get my hair cut and styled.  Then lo and behold - shock shock - I still had energy left over so I went off to the bagel shop and bought a supply of my yummy doughy bagels.  Then I ran to the grocery store to stock up on apple juice and chocolate milk.  Then home to put the groceries away - empty the dishwasher and wait for Warren to arrive.

He and I went out to lunch and then I managed to run to the card store to pick up birthday cards - four - count 'em FOUR - of my kids/grandkids have had birthdays while I was lolly gagging around in hospital and I missed the celebrations.  This Saturday is oldest grandbaby's birthday party and I have all my fingers and toes crossed that I will be able to get out to the celebration.

But buying the birthday cards was my undoing - I couldn't wait to get in the car and get home... I was pooped.  Mind you - when I thought about it logically - I had been up and on the go since 7:00 am... and it was now 2:00 pm,  so I guess I was entitled to be pooped !!

Today is my last day of "freedom" so to speak.  

Tomorrow I have an 8:30 am appointment with my surgeon.  My two weeks of freedom from poking, prodding, procedures, and tests is over.  My best guess is he is going to refer me to another specialist - an internist - to find out about the mass they found in the first round of tests.

It feels an awful like standing on the end of a very high diving board - looking down - being scared stiff to take that first step off.......... scared of the unknown.

But for today - I will enjoy my last day off and try very hard NOT to think about tomorrow and all the tomorrows that will follow.


  1. yay, at least you got out and about... good for you. And best wishes for tomorrow.

  2. Good thoughts, morningstar. Good thoughts.
