Time Keeps on Slipping

Today is a new moon, and Saturday is the first of October. The world keeps turning. My passport arrived in the mail. Hopefully, I will hear from my caseworker for my visa appeal sooner than the 14th. Wish me luck! I’d really like to see my husband. My final post-op doctor’s appointment went well. I’mContinue reading “Time Keeps on Slipping”

Crystal Green – Any kind of green you want!

I was so excited by my battle against the first week of surgery recovery, but then it demanded more of my attention when I thought it would need less after that. Post-Op Update: I wasn’t bleeding much (or at all after the first couple days), so whenContinue reading “Better Late than Never”

Surgeon’s Field Notes

Not really. I’m on Day 4 of surgery recovery, and I think I’m doing quite well. I’ve kept a detailed journal of everything I’ve been up to since the surgery, and it seems like my healing trajectory is quite good. It was two steps forward and one step back the other day, but that’s partContinue reading “Surgeon’s Field Notes”
