Today, though, I have the unpleasant task of taking Buzzy in for a check up/oil change. He has been just a little too ornery for our liking, so the fine folks at the Access Center will knock me out, take his picture, and then roto-root the crap out of him.
As unpleasant as this sounds, it really is part and parcel of maintaining a good access for dialysis. We suspect that Buzzy is good and strong, but that he may have developed some little twists and turns that are making the insertion of the needles to be a little tricky. So in I go, and tomorrow life should be much better in the D-chair.
Speaking of...I did get a fair amount of stitching done yesterday, and my lap stand worked brilliantly! It sat right where it needed to, did not get in anybody's way, and allowed me to keep my left arm completely still. Spinster win!
So today I will hurry up and finish my damn good (need to be NPO four hours before the procedure), I'll read the paper and check the Instagrams, and then I'll write a big long list of all of the things I want to accomplish while Rich is away. I know that the closets need cleaning and some ferns need to be procured for the balcony, but beyond that...who knows.
The Chicken Sisters and I promise to behave ourselves without adult supervision this week. (Well...I do anyway. You never quite know what the two of them are going to get into!)
Here's hoping that your Tuesday is perfectly swell and that you get to do whatever your heart desires. Come tell me all about it!
