Day 60

I went to the lab today to see if my pancreas is getting better or worse. If it's getting worse, I'm sure I'm headed for the hospital. I really don't want to go there. It's Memorial Day weekend here in the States, and while most everything is still closed, I'd still like to be out … Continue reading Day 60


Okay. For real. My freaking side hurts. I saw my doctor today and he ordered labs and my pancreatic enzymes are more than seven times the normal value. They gave me an option of doing a CT scan today or waiting until Friday to see where the levels were then, but I really don't want … Continue reading Sicko.

Day 58

(Not an actual image of my ancient car)... I have things to do today, per usual. I have to meet with my doctor today for another ER follow up due to some left upper quadrant abdominal pain and nausea. I have had this before and it was pancreatitis, but my levels in the ER weren't … Continue reading Day 58


It's just the kind of day to sit in the backyard with my friend's dog and blow bubbles. It's so pretty! I'm not manic, but I am simply happy.

I haven't really … Continue reading Sunny.

Day 53

...that pretty much sums it up, although she said she was thinking about permitting gatherings of less than ten by the end of the month, so there's hope. I am staring down the kitchen still, (I did get the sink cleaned out and the dishwasher emptied out), and I still have to get into the … Continue reading Day 53


It's super thundery and stormy today. I hate thunderstorms. I have a friend whose house caught on fire once due to a lightning strike, and I'm just not a fan of storms in general. I know I've posted about this before, I just get really anxious when it's a stormy day. I have to have … Continue reading Stormy.


I got some good advice today. I always think that good advice is like a precious gift. You can't put a pice on it's value. I was worried about my med review next week and this person told me that it's about me and it's okay to say that I need a minute to answer … Continue reading Advice.
