Winter storm here. By Southern standards. Everyone up north, it's 2-6 inches, which is a damn inconvenience. Storm requires not seeing 50 yards and/or the road.
We're off to the hospital in about an hour for Hubby's bone marrow biopsy/aspirate. (One is solid and the aspirate is the liquid bit.) He's being sedated, b/c he hates needles so much. He'd definitely be the one to flinch and end up with all kinds of ouchies from the flinch.
FIL i sdriving out to us in this crappy weather, b/c we couldn't talk him out of it, and he has to do something for his son.
I'm brainless from fear. It's a lot of PTSD, really. When a kid, we weren't allowed to feel/express fears about my dad's ongoing health dramas, and this triggered allllll lthat old repressed emotion like I'm still 12 years old ---- atop the terror of today. PTSD fucking sucks, pardon my English.
Shadow next door passed. They finally got around to telling us by way of a casual, "Oh, yeah, Shadow died last week." Pothead Guy really irks me. I'm glad he's so mellow. *tail lash*
Shitty check-in, I know. We have to leave by 930 at lastest to get to hospital in time to drop off 24 hours of Hubby's urine (ew) and prep for sedation for the bone marrow stuff, and we're all equally freaked out, so ti's like a lot of cats in a small area with a lot of coyotes. Mayehm.
Much love to all. Will check back ifwhen can. Hubby is a horrible patient at best.
Hospital just calle dto confirm we're coming in. Hell yeah. I'm from Up North. Hubby ived up there for 8 years. His dd is from upstate New York. We're showing. I am not rescheduling this over snowflakes. Nope. Nope. Nope. Sooner known, sooner treatment plan.
Wish us luck, and may everyone have a good soft day like a shower of flower petals:-)
Good morning! And I just realized I have to be at an appointment in 45 minutes and I have yet to shower. Sooo... Yikes. The lawyer will be telling me once and for all if/how I will do apply8ing for SSDI etc. It's the Last Ditch Effort. How did I forget it was this mornign? OMG. Denial won't make it easier...Wishing everyone big soft fresh-from-the-oven cinnamon-roll (or pastry of choice) sort...
I had a nightmare last night about some military related traumas and woke up in a funk. I hope I can move past it and move on with my day. I've had a very busy week with no time to rest. My computer died yesterday, great timing since I'm trying to start some classes using my GI Bill. Today I go to a fellow veteran's memorial service (he served in Vietnam). And this coming week is about to get...
