I’m waiting for the home care nurse to arrive. She’s dropping off syringes and gauze and other post-surgical necessities, in preparation for Wednesday. Remember back in the olden days when you’d stay in the hospital for a day or two after surgery? Now they send you home with drains and tubes in you and they give you and your loved ones little crash courses in post-operative nursing and they send people to your house to inject you with morphine.
What else is new? I tried to go to Propeller Dance’s show LIFT on Friday, but it was sold out. I heard later from my friend Donna that it was wonderful and moving. Next time I will buy my tickets in advance!
I met up with some bloggers for breakfast on Saturday, and we had fun. And then I saw some of them again on Saturday evening, at the Bloggers’ Wine & Cheese party at the Fringe Festival. I had a good time, even if the turnout was a little thinner than last year. I met some lovely people, including Jamine the Yoga Teacher. I also met several of the performers who are blogging on the Fringe Festival’s blog. I haven’t been to any of the plays yet, but I’m looking forward to checking some out this evening. (Have you been yet? Any recommendations?)
What else helped make this a good weekend? Finding out that the biopsy on my left breast lump came back negative, sweet juicy strawberries from the strawberry farm, breakfast with Grace and Steve, a visit to the vegetable patch, and having a dad to phone on Father’s Day.
UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE:The package was delivered by a delivery man, not a home care nurse. It included everything except a set of scrubs for GC.
