Nice one, huh? I remember telling my fifth graders that happiness was a choice and then I got a long email from one of the drama queens about how it was easy for me to say that…First I had everything I wanted and there weren’t any parents or teachers bossing me around and second, I was old and what kind of problems do old people have anyway? Their lives are almost over. Life is so tough when you’re eleven going on fifteen.
All’s well here. Feeling a bit better…not so whiny as yesterday. Saw Dr. Ho’s PA who prescribed something to help with the swallowing. He also checked (because it wasnt on my calendar) and surgery is scheduled for April 3. So now I know all the important dates…and more important, Erin and Sean know the important dates. We’re good to go.
We met with Ron and Linda Orum today…fellow Floridians who were referred to Anderson from the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville. Nice to talk to people who are feeling the cold as much as we are, going through similar experiences, and almost on the same time table. They’ll be coming back to Houston around the time we will, so in the time between coming back and surgery, we hope to get together for lunch depending on how Ron and I feel. Thanks, Judy, for getting us together!
Packed another suitcase this morning. Slowly but surely we’re getting ready to go. It seems incredible to think that at this time next week, we’ll be close to driving into Venice!
