I was happy to open my eyes this morning and see the sun shining bright outside. That isn’t to say it’s not still a little chilly at 40 degrees. But, the clouds are gone. So far today, I am doing better. My chest and ribs are still a little sore, but not as bad. Each day will see an improvement. Our high today is going to be close to 50, and I need to get out of this house. It is time for a lunch out. It will be nice. I haven’t seen my friend since before Christmas, mainly because she was out-of-town and I was down with the flu. Then January we had snow(?) and I ended up in the ER. So today is the day.
I have come to the conclusion that doctors do not pay any attention to what a patient tells them. Example 1, I hurt my back, my doctor knows I have a high blood pressure problem, so what does she do, orders a muscle relaxer which causes high blood pressure. I end up in the ER for high blood pressure. Example 2: I love OJ. I have been drinking a lot of orange juice this month. Which is what I think caused my acid reflux problem and sent me, again, to the ER. It was my fault, not a doctor’s. But I’m in the ER telling the doctor how I have big problems taking medication. He orders me a stomach pill which gave me severe stomach pains. A side effect of the drug. I can’t take it. Oh well, we all know doctors have to play a guessing game when treating a patient. Dammit! I’m craving a big glass of OJ and I can’t have it or a lot of other foods.
I made a list of the scenes I have to complete for THE HANGMAN. There are five plus the conclusion. That shouldn’t take too long if I keep my butt in this chair working. It all depends on how I feel, and if the brain is working. I’ll keep at it, and as soon as it’s finished, I’ll shouting YEAH, on to the next book.
Everyone have a great rest of the week, and stay safe. Remember: NEVER GIVE UP, NEVER SURRENDER.
