The piggy that went to market – My nine-year-old granddaughter had a big toe tumor removed this past week. I always feel badly when children have surgery. It’s scary. I remember when I had my tonsils taken out at age 11. They kept me overnight and no one could stay with me. I was terrified. Today most things are out-patient and if not, a parent can stay. I hear she is high on pain meds and in good spirits. Here’s hoping for a fast recovery.
Signs of aging – In the next two weeks the beloved husband and I have a total of nine medical appointments and we are healthy. Can you believe that? Some are annual check-ups and some are for testing. Back in the old days (like when I was young) it would take five years to have nine appointments!
Speaking of which – I had an appointment Friday morning. Somehow I got the timing wrong and showed up an hour early. This was an early morning appointment and it was pre-Starbucks. It was a very painful, long hour! (Yet another sign of aging.)
Frogs are out – After another dreadful winter, the frogs are sunning themselves. They are not mating yet, but I did see them eyeing each other up. Love is in the air.
Just a trim – I usually cut the beloved husband’s hair. I have been doing it for years and it turns out nice (except for the time I forgot to put a guide on the clipper and buzzed a row in the back). My thumb is still out of commission for anything requiring dexterity so he got a haircut at one of the local shops. Yikes! His hair has never been this short! He has roosters at the crown. As he says, “It will grow!”
How was your week?
