So, it started off ok. Got to the hospital on time, checked in on time and then it was APITA, or pain in the ass. Waiting , waiting. My 10 o’clock time came and went . On top
Of it no water, no food, God, no coffee… The worst was the nurses, although nice seemed very confused. They kept saying we need the protocols for a bone marrow biopsy … I’m not sure what they needed if they’ve done this a zillion times. I was not happy an let them know. I felt Mercy San Juan in Sacramento was a joke. Very Untogether. So, two plus hours later.. But when I got in to the ct room with the radiologist doing the procedure it was fine. They use a new tool that’s like a drill. I went under, it was done and now I’m just a little sore. It’ll take 3-5 days to find out how many plasma cells are in the marrow. It’s probably a little barbaric to get drilled in your hip, but whatca gonna do.
The first thing I made my husband do is stop at Starbucks for coffee !
Hopefully it’ll be ok, I’m planning to go to work tomorrow, not really do any lifting but I can check patrons out.
I see how I wake up.
Well, I finally caught something from either the library or someone brought germs in the house. I’m sniffly and sinusey. Not terrible but still … I’m taking lemon water, sinus stuff and some Chinese herbs. Otherwise I’ll let it run its course. No fever so, I’m ok there. With my BMB on Friday im hoping I’ll be better. I don’t think getting my hip drilled will make a lot of difference to my sinuses but I’d prefer if I’m not too under the weather. Speaking of weather the same day ( Friday) were in for rain and wind. Oh joy that will help my stress levels. 😬
Well, it’s pay day, and I’m off to get cash for groceries and fill up my van. I saw gas at 2.07 yesterday so that’ll help. I need some groceries but my head feels 10 times bigger than it is so I’ll wait.
today is Imbolc in the Celtic year or first day of spring. It’s the cross quarter. I have often felt the shift even if it’s raining or snowing. Somehow the light is different and when it’s nice out I can actually feel it in the air. Here in California, it’s easier probably than back east but I think those sensitive to the earth will feel something. Sunrise is now 7:10 and sunset 5:26 , so definitely there’s more light.
Our weather is very nice but we expecting rain toward the end of the week. we really need it but I just don’t want big windy storms.
I decluttered a bin of Life magazines. I’m going to take then to the library and see if I can sell them for the friends. There’s still more to do, but one bin is a lot.
This week the Flylady zone is the entry way and dining room. Since we don’t have a dining room, just our table and chairs as part of our front room , it’s pretty easy. The entry is always a problem because it’s not really an entry way per se. On side of this enclosed porch is our covered pantry , the other is where my husband has his desk. I do have a nice piece of Heywood wakefield to look at when you walk in. I keep seasonal things on it.
I’m wondering how hard would it be to dig a foundation under this porch so it would pass code and could be included in our house when we sell. If not it’s probably a tear down. It’s very cute with nice windows, but I’m sure it would be problematic in a sale. We will sell as is, but in California that still means disclosure.
Oh well, we’ll worry about that in the future.
