My weird normal



I have the invasion of the body snatchers.  I woke with light sensitive headache and as my tiny daughter said, my eyebrows hurt. I was told by NP to take meds not close to best treatment. I got myself to urgent care to see a real doc who gave me the right stuff. In 48 hours I feel clearing less stuffy pressure. My facial swelling is down.  It makes a difference to have the doctors see me.  That is a fight here in the snf. But in our household my kids know the drill for a sinus infection.  Like common sense. But I suffered a long weekend without treatment so it progressed.

No one seems to care I have not showered on time and forced to cancel dentist cleaning. In fact it seems to be an inconvenience. I hope to feel good onSt. Paddy' s Day. 


My best frind sent me green nail polish glitter and a box of green things. I love the new shamrock socks and scarf. I have shamrock beads and one lights up. I usually polish my friend's nails but I have been ill. I still see her wave down the hall pretty in my new pink.

The lady that does bingo asked me if I was joining but I said I was sick. She replied "sick of what?"  I explained ILL. 

So I try to be sunshine with my rainbow shamrocks I put on my nails. My soul cries for my daughter and grandson.

I sleep. I know this is a horrible painful thing on top of my leg.

Thankful list includes my new dr ordering more therapy and for new pretty copper quad cane to help me toddle around. my coloring and my movie wish list.

My van driver did not know I had a stroke or what is wrong with me. Always amazes me that I can pull off some weird normal to others. I try to share but she was more interested in her own story. So I listen.

I'm glad there are things that make you happy Pam.  Sometimes it is hard to count your blessings but it helps to pick up your mood.  The shamrock socks sound lovely and the green nail polish.  Doesn't take much to help others, a cheery smile and a wave will do it some days.
