So, let me tell you about my summer!


So far, Summer 2017 has involved medical foo, home renovations, surprise!funeral and not-a-surprise godbaby.

Medical Foo I have blogged a bit about in That Was Spinal Tap and That Was Spinal Tap Two.  I’ve also fic’d and freewrote about it in Diagnostic Machine and Just A Little Structural Rot.

The long and the short of it: After more doctor visits, blood tests, and spinal taps than seems reasonable or even probable (and two MRIs), I have a diagnosis and will start drug treatment soon.  It’s not a thrilling diagnosis, but, to quote Arnold, it’s not a tumor. (It’s not a baby either.  I don’t think they’d need a spinal tap to tell that one).

I now have three weeks without blood draws or doctor visits, and if my dentist calls, I’m going to tell them I’m out of the country for a while.  Or something.  No more co-pays kthnxbai.

Did I really just say kthnxbai?  Please forgive me.

Yesterday began with another neurologist visit (new neurologist, no better diagnosis, I get to get another MRI AND another LP, but then we might know what's up) and ended with a visit up to Rochester to have dinner with [ profile] Capriox_b and Mr. Cap, err, [ profile] Talikan.

So... all's well that ends well?

It was a very nice drive, great to see Cap & Tal, got to look at some nice furniture, and I still have two days of weekend left!

What's new with all y'all?

(Yes, I know those aren’t people spines at all. But it was a free image!)


So, Friday was exciting!

aldersprig: (LynConstruction) that sometimes you have to make your own comfort food.

Usually, T. makes me things like broth or risotto, and that's wonderful, but this time, I had (have) a sore throat/swollen glands, and I was seriously missing my mom's vanilla pudding, that she used to make me when I was sick sometimes.

I haven't lived at home in 20 years or so, and, besides, my mom's at a yoga seminar on the other side of the country (details are fuzzy) right now.

So I had to make my own.

I used a pretty basic Betty Crocker recipe, and it turned out - not quite like my childhood (not as grainy, and a little too sweet, which could be refined tastes) - but very yummy.

And, ya know? It made me feel better for a bit, too.

(I am still taking commissions at 150 words/$1 for someone to re-up my paid DW account... I miss my icons.)

I left work sick on Monday and spent most of the time between then and now sleeping or feeling miserable.

Back nao.

In better news, Theo is feeling much better!

But, Mousie, thou art no thy lane,
In proving foresight may be vain;
The best-laid schemes o' mice an 'men
Gang aft agley,
An'lea'e us nought but grief an' pain,
For promis'd joy!

Plan for day: 20-10-20s, of housework-rest-writing

So far today:
20 kitchen, 10 play, 20 writing, lunch, drugstore for battery for thermometer, REALLY upset cat for a couple minutes, migraine+sinus headache=nap.
Then hanging out with spouse and cats for twenty minutes, which at least was totally worth it. :-)

Hello and happy Saturday!

I confess, "everyone else is doing it" is a very strong motivator for me to not do something: dye my hair red, even when I wanted to. Wear something fashionable. Start weight loss programs in January.

So, what are you doing nicely for yourself this year?
