I could use an entire week to play catch up but I'll just give you the highlights of what has been happening around here. Needless to say, I feel like the photo above.
- Last Wednesday I saw the surgeon who put my nose back together. He was well pleased with his work and told me that it was still swollen - which I knew as my glasses are still tight and feel heavy by the end of the day. Another 4 weeks before all that swelling goes down but it works very well and I am very pleased at the look. It's my nose, no new nose here so I look the same. My black raccoon eyes are gone now as well.
- I'm back to work full time. However, I tend to crash once I'm home. I either fall asleep before dinner, or right after dinner so I wake up, change, and go to bed. I joined a Multiple Myeloma online group and with the small population on it, they are surprised that I am back full time already as many of them still hadn't returned part time 8 weeks after harvesting. I went back 6 weeks after harvesting- very part time and each week added a few more hours. A few were working part time at 8 week but only a very small group were back full time. I wanted to get back to "normal" as soon as possible so I pushed to get there. Now to get back to normal here at home.
- Our oldest granddaughter is now 5 years old and we had a blast at the house party. Our daughter and son-in-law did a great job at the party. He grilled out in 20 degree temps. The house lost power for about an hour so the lanterns came out and the party continued. Earlier in the day, there was a play party at a local indoor playground for kids for school mates and cousins. What a long day for all of them. We are so proud of our kids and the parents they are.
- I spent one Saturday teaching Pet CPR/1st aid to a group of grooming students. They had lots of question and we took a bit of time practicing CPR over and over again until they felt ready to do it for real. It was a long day, but well worth it.
-So life is returning to "normal" what ever "normal" means these days. I have blood work today and see my Oncologist this Thursday. For those of you who pray, please pray for good results and that I am still in remission. Most days I start out strong but by the afternoon I am weak and by evening, I'm just limp and crawl into bed praying for energy. My emotions are still like a roller coaster which makes living with me hard on Hubby. He is a saint for putting up with my ever changing moods.
So finding time to type up a blog post falls to the weekend when I have a bit of time left over before I sleep. Thank you for checking in with me. I so appreciate that gesture. We are moving towards "normal".
