Celebrating the End with a
Temporary Chemical Lobotomy
It's STILL Not Over
C0Payment to General Surgeon: $25
CoPayment to Hospital: $100
Spending a couple of hours soaked in the mind-numbing drugs of surgical sleep, bereft of thought or dream or any memory of the aggravations of this semester, particularly the end of it:
This has been the semester from hell.
And now it seems like it will never end.
And because I haven't suffered enough, I'm having a yard sale tomorrow, just the kind of pain-in-the-ass thing you want to do after a hellish semester that was topped off by a litle surgery. I mustn't have felt like I was loving myself enough, huh?
So, I'd hoped to tell the whole story here, tonight but it's already after 4:00AM, and after 3 hours, the Ambien is sorta kicking in, just a little. (What's with that??) There has been so, so much going on that I haven't had a chance to post about. It's been pretty tough getting time to do anything blog-related (reading or posting) in these last few months. Sigh.
Oh, yes. I said surgery up there, and I really shouldn't leave you without some explanation. I had a funky lump poking out of the middle of my chest, right under the bottom of the bra-line. The docs decided it was either an abdominal hernia or a lipoma (just a plain old fatty tumor). Lucky for me, it was the latter, which means a faster, easier recovery. So, I decided to end my happy semester with exactly what I needed-- short-term amnesia; the temporary chemical lobotomy; anesthetic bliss. However short it was, and however painful after, it was worth it. And after I was released, I slept non-stop for almost two straight days without anyone bothering me. Now that's really priceless!
I'll tell the rest of the story in the next post. If this reads all wonky, it just means the Ambien is working better than I thought right now.
Hey! If you know where my house is and you're in the neighborhood, stop by and visit! I'll be out there from 10:00 AM until 3:00 PM. with all kinds of stuff from here, there and everywhere. If you're driving in either direction on Carrollton near Cohn, you'll see couple of the funkiest Yard Sale signs ever sitting out there on the neutral ground, you'll know your nearby.
More to come! Love to you all!
