A nice day until . . .

October 6, 2017 Friday

I slept fairly well last night and woke up nicely rested.  I was in no hurry but finally got up and dressed.  I ate a nice breakfast and then called some insurance people – my favorite entertainment!!  hahaha  I do have to pay a copay from several months ago so I arranged that on WF Bill Pay.  My surgeon does not yet have the results from the surgery tests or at least he has not signed off on them so that his PA can access it.  She said she will call me when she has them and she said it will be long before our meeting next Thursday.

Then I got in my truck, took the list I had made and started checking things off.  I won’t bore you with the whole list.  I did get the dent from the shopping cart removed ($100) and I did pay my house insurance and my car insurance ($$$$$).  I did buy new sheets and get them washed and I just finished making up my bed with them.  I’m looking forward to getting into bed.

I met the girls at a small restaurant and we all had a nice meal.  When I got home, I noticed I was quite tired.  And then the diarrhea started.  It was sooooo painful and long lasting but I feel better now that it appears to have ended and I’ve taken two showers to help with the pain.  Now, I’m exhausted.   It reminded me of the good old bad old day of chemo!!!

I don’t have many plans for tomorrow but I am looking forward to getting some rain at some point.  I certainly hope that the hurricane Nate doesn’t do much more damage but we certainly do need some rain – four days of it are supposed to be coming our way!!  I’m sure I’ll be tired of it by the time it ends!!

Morning weight – 221.2 I think.  The batteries in my scales are dying but I think that’s right.  I would expect the weight to be higher tomorrow because of that slice of coconut cake I had at dinner but with the diarrhea, tomorrow’s weight might be less.  Who knows?!?!?!?!?!
