Life in general
I have woken at about 4 am every day lately.....its getting annoying
The past week has been a bit of a whirlwind, the office has been quite busy (shock horror!) and we had month end to prepare for and then do. One of the sales fell over but that is how it goes. I may have another, much BIGGER one, which would be timely and nice. Several percent of half a million will keep us out of the fire for a little while.......hmmmmm
We will see.
Mum goes for her cardiogram thingo today, the MRI may take a bit longer as there have to be certain specific alignments of the planets in order for it to happen quickly, apparently.....
Mum herself is in better spirits this week. I think now that the cancer is on the move so is she in a funny sort of way, she has organised for her house to go on the market, with the competition of course, as its too hard to do yourself, and is thinking seriously about other such stuff. The steroids they put her on seem to have made a difference to her energy levels too, early days but she walked somewhere instead of driving yesterday, and it was only across the road and back!
I am realising that I have surgery myself in 11 days! I am not worried about it at all which is a bit weird, it just feels so piddling next to everything else happening around here. I haven't actually had a proper surgery before, just little things, but I handled anaesthetic alright so I presume I will this time too. I'm looking forward to some time out and hoping I'm not in very much pain after the initial body shock. I have a pretty high pain threshold so fingers crossed.
I did realise that I do not own a nightie! Or a pair of slippers! Hmmmmm.......better get a couple I guess, catheters and pyjama pants may not mix.
Any advice on what to expect will be gratefully received.
And its my birthday next Saturday the 14th too...43 years old I will be. And feeling 60. Sigh.
My house is a goddamn pigsty!
How to find the time to fix that before I go to hospital will be a tricky thing.
Better get some slaves in I think.....
Looks like Helen is having a baby today!
How exciting! A new life.
I did wonder if I should be feeling sadness at the loss of my womb.....but I'm not you know.
It has done it's job and done it well and now it needs to go before it causes me anymore strife. And that is that. I will not bleed to death every month for the next 8 years if I don't have to, and I will not carry a growing uterus the size of a pregnancy without a baby in it either. No way.
And having had pre-cancerous cells there years ago, I will be happy to see the end of my cervix as well!
So, that is that....
Now, how will I get up the damn driveway?
I shall have to run a rope up it and pull myself up!
Have a nice day!
