A bit of devastation, a bit of pestilence

So I’ve been in and out of the doctor’s office/ hospital the last few days and I need to go back on Friday for an ultra sound. Professional note: I really think doctors should have different hand outs for moms to be, verses people who are getting scanned for tumors. The note about being able to bring a “partner” and video tape the whole procedure is very disturbing when it is the latter.

And if this isn’t hell enough the dreaded “lice” parasite has found my house again. Yes, my daughter Bella still hugs with her head but it was I, her mother who was escorted OUT of Aveda by way of the back door, my head still dripping wet while they “yellow taped” the station I was sitting at.

Emily is still laughing and I feel like a leper.

Oh no!!!! Devastation and pestilence begone! I'm throwing virtual salt over my shoulder and making patooey noises. The cats are expressing their concern. Seriously, though . . . sending good thoughts your way.

Wow, ultrasounds and lice! Not a good week.
Seriously, hope you are taking good care of yourself and heal instantly like you plan. In case you don't, have some nice "house pajamas and robe" wear around and some easy-watching television (movies might seem too complex post-surgery.) Glad you have loved ones who come visit. And drink plenty of water to rid your body of anasthesia :) That's my inner grandmother talking.
I'll be thinking well thoughts for you... said...
