two days now before my O day.
nothing like waiting forever for O day ! or would you say S day for surgery?
this mess has been going on now since july 10th. and i’m not the most patient patient old bean!
it’s better than the awe inspiring horrific D day ~ that historical landing and battle.
i cannot even imagine that. we have films of it. and yet . . .
it remains truly unimaginable for those of us who didn’t live it. what those men went through.
rather puts EVERYTHING into perspective in one’s life doesn’t it?
i just thought this sign was cute. the internet is so full of wonderful creative images!
yesterday i saw the throat specialist.
and as i told my dear friends . . . cc girl and cheerful monk . . . i have collected myself yet
ANOTHER YOUNG SURGEON !!!
they’re simply adorable. i’m in love with BOTH of them!
and if you’re going to have a man cutting on you ANYWHERE . . .
but most especially your throat . . .
you better adore him!!! LOLOLOL.
when i went to see him monday about this place far back in my throat . . .
i didn’t expect anything dramatic or scary. i found the clinic. got there in plenty of time.
was very relaxed. thinking he would just . . .
you know . . . ask you to open your mouth and say AHHHH.
they have this thing called a scope you see. a little camera and light on it.
it goes WAYYY DOWN your throat and WAYYY UP your nose!!!
i am happy to report i have no more “suspicious places” anywhere else! WHEW!
i tried to swallow a penny when i was about 2 years old.
luckily my father was at home. must have been a weekend.
i came running. had already turned blue according to my poor mother!
he picked me up by my ankles . . . hung me upside down and slapped my back
the penny that was stuck in my throat then flew across the room!
mother said he did it all in a matter of seconds. it saved my life of course.
but the penny apparently left some scar tissue. or something. that is only a supposition of course.
the doctor surgeon told me yesterday that he didn’t even need a biopsy.
it’s benign! that is becoming the most beautiful word to me lately!!!!
first the other tumors are benign. and now this one benign too.
i am so fortunate. and don’t think i don’t appreciate it old bean. i so do.
because of this extra little surgery inside my throat right where i swallow . . .
he said it will probably hurt a bit more afterward than just the other surgery would have.
BUT a perfect excuse to lie around and sip something cool!
as if i need an excuse. LOL. he doesn’t know me.
both surgeries are still just going to be . . .
as you know . . . that’s what we americans say when we mean
it’s gonna be really
” EASY. NUTHIN’ TO IT! A PIECE A CAKE! “
and i agree . . . as opposed to . . . uh . . . let’s say . . .
or . . . on a different level . . . same breed . . .
and so . . .
i will continue to think of my little ordeal as this below . . .
OH YEAH. i just COULDN’T RESIST IT.
OH. MY. GOSH.
GOOD GRIEF CHARLIE BROWN.
be still my misbehaving heart! LOLOL. cholesterol coming your way!
naw. i won’t. oh but lordy how i want to.
and i apologize to everybody out there who can’t or shouldn’t have it either!
i have no right to torture us this way. LOLOL.
notice how one LOL is not enough anymore?
she just gets carried away with being too funny apparently.
i DO intend to eat plenty of THIS though for a few days. the surgeon said i could!
now THAT’S my kind of permission!!!
make my plain vanilla please.
oh. that site sounds kind of interesting doesn’t it? will have to check it out.
he at least appreciates frozen yogurt!
tomorrow will be a long day. i have some errands to do.
BROTH to buy! maybe some herbal teas. LOL.
i’m expecting the marine back any day now. there was a bit of a delay in
albuquerque. but he knows to be back to take me on the 19th. and he promised he would!
lest he get caught in flash floods out there or something!!!
boy has poor colorado and new mexico suffered this year.
first they tried to burn up and now they’re drowning. too much tragedy there.
my love to EACH one of you who has someone there or if YOU are there.
and i know my monk is. and bhb.
my heart to yours dear ones.
WELL. SO ENOUGH HERE.
i think i might just be rambling now!
i’ve got my plaid pants packed and my red nose is ready.
here’s where it’s happening.
it’s a BEAUTIFUL new hospital! i’m so lucky!
and i get to stay overnight! it’s a really neat place. like a set off of a star wars movie!
the marine can hang out here below while he’s waiting for my deal there on thursday.
this is a shot of their cafeteria ~ there’s also a starbucks coffee shop.
he’s a coffee hound so that’s where he’ll be happy!
here i am.
signing off old bean!
i’ll be back on line when it’s all over!
til soon old bean.
a major snoopy hug comin’ your way!
