It’ll just be for a little while

I really knew I needed to be seen when I was surprised to see the ileostomy bag. Forgot about that.

Richard drove.

The doctor: Nauseous?


Did you eat anything today? What?

A slice of Kringle, a little leftover chicken (I know, the day after Thanksgiving!) and…and… (struggling) …a persimmon.

I was definitely loopy. She had more questions.

Okay, touch my finger, then your nose, then my (moved) finger.

(Wait, my nose is over where?) Right side passed, left side, out to lunch.

Okay, said the doctor, let me see if there are enough people on today down in CT, otherwise you’ll have to go to the ER. Then come right back up here.

A thank you thank you thank you to the people who worked in that department today. They were able to get me in in five minutes. No bleeding but definitely a concussion. My balance is worse than usual and I was told to let my brain rest and heal before doing anything that might risk a second concussion in a short time, especially given my history. Listen to my body: if it doesn’t want to do it don’t do it or it will take far longer to heal.

I had to miss seeing Mel and Kris at a show and that was really hard, but there was just no way. Phyllis had to go off without me.

Feet up. Rest. Knit. Something simple for now.

Yikes!!! Please, please, please take care of yourself!!

When I saw your post yesterday, I knew exactly what you went through – our Prius lift back occasionally attacks me … But I guess I’m just more hard-headed than you are (-:

Yes, staying off your feet for a few days sounds like a very good plan! Enjoy the rest.

Oh no! Rest up while I take on prayer duty.

No more of this!

Yikes is right! So glad you got checked out. Now follow the doctor’s orders and really take care of yourself, please. Knit simple stuff, don’t tax your brain on figuring out that new pattern. I know rest is hard to do. Here’s to speedy healing.

I guess we find adventure where we can, huh? *silly giggle*

I trust you to follow the doctor’s orders and rest. Read you are feeling better. Still…

Please stay seated while I come over to hug you.

Oh, you really are quite thorough when you do anything at all, aren’t you?!! I hope tomorrow everything feels back where it belongs.
