My Mom insisted that I write this addendum to today’s post.  Why?  Because today was a good day – I got to feel like myself for a while.

Today was the first day in over a week that I didn’t have to go to the hospital for an appointment or test, or call my doctor because of some random issue or illness.  Today my pain has been manageable, at times even non-existent.  No meds were changed, so I didn’t have to take a trip to the pharmacy (I’m very popular at CVS these days!).  There was no call from a medical professional about a change in my treatment plans.  Indeed, I even got good news that I don’t have a blood clot as the doctors suspected.  Phew…

Today I took a trip to Target, my retail Disney Land, with my Dad and experienced some retail therapy.  They had their back to school supplies out, and I love school supplies, so I had fun perusing the aisles.  I can’t remember the last time I was in a store.  It’s amazing how it made me feel like a human again.  The best part of the day was lunch with my Dad – he insisted that the only circumstance under which he would drive me to Target was if we stopped for lunch…at Dairy Queen!

After my healthy lunch of a Reese’s Blizzard, it was back home and a leisurely walk with Sadie.  Again, something I haven’t been able to do for the past few days.

All in all, it was a good day.  Lately, they haven’t come around that often, so when they do, I am grateful.

I hope you had a good day, too!
