ON THIS EPISODE OF SPINSTER HOSPITAL...

Oey, with the boo boo already.

It would seem that Day Two is a little worse than the Day Of.  Could it be that I no longer have powerful sedatives coursing through my veins and am now having to face the world as...me?

Nothing to complain about, though.  I am showered, caffeinated, and in the Happy Chair writing to my peeps with Stewey supervising from his little box on his perch.  What's not to love about all of that?

Thank you for your well wishes and happy thoughts.  This is quite an adventure, folks, and knowing that I am not having to take it alone makes all the difference in the world.

Now, I will leave you with the best advice I can think of at the moment....

If you ever have to have your arm cut open and your pipes re-routed, make sure to get yourself a Miss Charlene.  She will get up at 3 o'clock in the morning, drive you to the hospital in an ice storm, and then make sure you return home happy and healthy with nary a complaint.  I. Can't. Even.

So that's it for today.  No stitching, I'm afraid...I can't quite bend my arm enough just yet with the soreness and swelling, but I might try to break out the lap stand this afternoon.  The good news is that I did confirm that my access point will be in my upper arm for dialysis, so I should be able to figure that out when the time comes.  Thank you, Dr. Peterson for that one!

Time for puzzles and then a nap.  That shower just about wore me out, but it sure was nice to get into fresh jams!

Happy Futzingday!

  10. Thanks to Miss Charlene for taking care of our Spinster.

    Coni, while you are resting, I know you will figure out a way to stitch while receiving treatment.

    I'm thinking a bag of frozen peas secured to your arm with coordinating athletic tape may be an answer.

    Remember Stewey and how he insisted on dressing properly.

    Feel better and know all of us are here.

    1. Oh Miss Charlene. You are a angel. I don't drive in ice storms in mid afternoon let alone 3am. But I'm not an angel.
