Hannah arrived safely in northern California. She is there this week checking out a school of ministry with a friend.....and she may be moving there for a year this August. I am trying to take it in stride....but it's actually freaking me out.
Charles bought a treadmill today! We sold our pop up camping trailer a couple of months ago and used that money to buy a used Nordic Track treadmill from Craig's list. It's monstrous! But I don't care.....I've been wanting one for 13 years now! It has programs you can choose from to do different work outs. I have to do some major studying of the manual so that I can get the most out of my monster.
Saturday the glands under my right jawline started going crazy and are now so sore that I stayed home from work today. This morning, after sitting, waiting for 3 hours to get in an examining room where I waited another half hour, the doctor at urgent care didn't think it was an infection because I have no fever and my tonsils are not swollen. (how does that rule out an infection in your glands?) She gave me an rx and told me to wait and see if it got worse before I used it, but if it gets worse I will probably need to rip it out of my neck before the meds would kick in. So I filled the script (we walked around shopping while we waited in Walgreens for over half an hour for it....but it's easier to wait if you're with your Charles). I took one tonight. So much for being an obedient patient.
I also had a urologist follow up apt today. So I went to get an xray taken of my kidneys. The radiologist department had just moved into their brand new building today, so it was a little disorganized. The staff and techs all had new computers and machine to use for the first time. So after sitting and waiting for another hour, I walked out with xrays in hand. My report? The sand-like debri is still hanging around in the bottom of my kidney....looks like more upsidedownishness is in store for me. And more tests for kidney function (for another day, not today). We're trying to see if there is an underlying problem that causes me to make stones.
And now....I am watching the season finale of House. And I haven't minded sitting here for an hour at all....
