For the second time this week I had to have blood drawn for tests. Today the nurse didn’t have much trouble finding my vein, fortunately, unlike what happened on Tuesday. She was so happy she screamed! I had drunk lots of water for the past few days. Let’s just hope that the results indicate what we already know – that my thyroid dosage needs to be increased!
I have not been well at all these days, and could hardly get up. Today we had to change my appointment from 1:00 to 3:30PM. Fortunately, Ramon had brought another whole dinner, so when we got back I could rest again. I am surrounded by guardian angels.
But – it happens again. It is another holiday on Monday (well, the real holiday is on Sunday 4, but people need to have an extra day off). This means a “lost” day, which, in the context of the time since my surgery, is not that bad. I have already reached the eleventh month of waiting!
Next, I will be waiting for our daughters, Rosana and Julia Valeria, who will be coming in the next few months. Rosana will be here for my 76th birthday in September. I can’t believe it, as I have been reading so many books that say a character is “old” when s/he reaches 70. Not true, I say!!! I do not feel old at all, in spite of my current crabby and weak state. It will pass soon! I need to be optimistic.
People need to understand that this is the first time in all my life that I have had surgery and been in bed for so long. I can’t even remember being in bed for one whole day! It’s good, but at the same time it is very frustrating. At times, I can’t believe it is happening, and I immerse myself in a book or a film and try to forget reality.
Back to bed now. Hope to write some more soon!
