I’m running on empty this week so there are only three!
Betty story – With my sis-in-law in a rehab facility gaining strength I have some stories. She was on a semi-liquid diet – cottage cheese, soups, pudding and some mystery food. After a week or so of that nonsense she was ready for some of the candy that came as gifts. We took a few pieces in to her. We had no sooner put them on her table when I noticed that she had chipmunk cheeks. She ate two truffles in was seemed like a nanosecond. Nothing in the hospital seems like a nanosecond so this was really fast. She was ready for solid food.
Back away from my hands – I’m a germaphobe. I don’t like to shake hands unless I can immediately wash them. Especially in the winter. Over the last few weeks I’ve met a few docs along the way and they always shake my hand. Medical settings are germy. A friendly ‘hi’ will do the trick for me. Maybe I need a sign.
Mother Nature – She’s been very disappointing. Whenever I have something scheduled she doles out bad weather. My brother was discharged from the hospital in a swirling snowstorm. My SIL was transferred to the rehab in a windstorm with 55 miles per hour gusts. Yesterday I planned a road trip and we woke up to 4 inches of snow. Seriously, I need some sunshine and nice weather. Please.
So how was your week?
