UPDATES AND NEW PAGES – WAITING ISN’T

My surgeon bumped me to next Tuesday, so Monday will be the catheterization and Tuesday, surgery. He has a couple of emergency surgeries on Friday and it’s hard to argue the point. If it were my emergency, I’d certainly want my life saved.

Is there some sort of symbolism to going in on St. Patrick’s Day? If there is, I’m having trouble finding it, but you’re welcome to draw any inferences you like.

For those who wonder where the menu went, there’s a little square at the top of the site that contains three horizontal line. When you click it, the menu appears (click again, it goes away). Check it out!

I’ve added two new pages: one each for Garry and Rich. I’ve renamed my page to (tada!!) The Marilyn Page. Garry’s page is (you can jump in any time …) The Garry Page and Rich’s page has the shockingly original name, The Rich Paschall Page.

Both Rich and Garry will probably do some editing to make their pages more personal, but in the meantime, at least you can find some basic information about them. I should have done it sooner, but I didn’t think of it. I worked this blog solo for a long time. Now that I’ve got co-editors (and I hope to have one more soon!), I need to rethink a few things.

And I’m thinking. Can’t you smell the smoke?

  1. Have a chill weekend while you wait for Monday & Tuesday.
    YAY for Garry & Rich who know have their very own categories. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I just stopped by to send good wishes on today, catheterization day, only to see that it has been postponed. Hopefully this is for the best.

    P.S. I love the change to the menu and that you now have official co-editors! Awesome! ๐Ÿ˜€

    • It may be for the best. My cold is back — again — if indeed it ever entirely left. And the driveway is covered with snow. Again. So maybe a couple of extras days is a good thing. It is, however, frustrating. Glad you like the new look. I’m almost satisfied.

  3. At this point, I bet you just want it all to be over and you can rejoin your life. I know my life was on hold for so long with Lymes. Be thinking of you!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Oh, yes I do want it over. I would like to get on with life. This waiting is awful. I’ve got my entire world on hold, can’t make any plans. It’s like living in a waiting room.

  4. I’m sorry your surgery date got bumped up! I do love what you’ve done with the place though, that menu button is fun!

    • The waiting is a killer, but I haven’t got much choice. And being as it’s snowing to beat the band right now, maybe it turned out just as well. Especially since I’ve got a NEW cold. And my granddaughter’s in the hospital. We’ve been wondering which of the gods we’ve pissed off around here!

      The menu button is part of the template. Kind of cook, but I wish it were a bit more obvious what it does. Most people miss it. I like it too, but it’s a bit obscure ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Sorry you’ve been bumped. It’s hard enough waiting for the date, then to have it shifted.
    I’ve just had some fun clicking the menu on and off. Awesome ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I thought everyone would immediately “get” the menu button because it’s exactly the kind of button Google uses … but most people missed it until I told them. Go figure, right?

      It’s snowing again. AGAIN. With this weather, getting to the hospital would have been pretty dicey anyway, so maybe the delay was just as well. The roads are very messy. Will winter never leave??

      • From what I’ve seen, most people miss the Google menu button as well!
        Hopefully next week, spring will have sprung (it has here, not sure how long it will last).

        • It took me a while to get used to Google’s style, especially their lack of an OK or SAVE button. I always feel like something is missing. But I’m getting used to it and I recognize the form of the button, if not its intent. As for spring? I hope so. We are all very wintered out.

  6. So sorry to hear about your grand-daughter, Marilyn. I hadn’t realised until I read this morning’s comments. I am also very sorry to hear about the delay to your surgery: how very frustrating. Do hope Kaity (hope I have got her name right) gets better soonest. Hugs all round. Ali xxx

    • You didn’t miss anything. It just happened last night very late. She’s been miserably sick for a few days, but last night she just passed out. The local hospital admitted they were stumped, so they shipped her to Children’s Hospital in Boston … a MUCH better hospital where I hope they will figure out what’s going on. Ever feel like you pissed off some deity somewhere? This house feels jinxed.

      • Oh lord, poor girl – how scary for you all. Glad to hear that she’s in a decent hospital at least. Know exactly what you mean about deities and pissing the buggers off. Wish there were more I could say that was truly useful – but, failing that, hugs and very best wishes all round. xxx

        • It’s just been one thing after another for so long, I feel like I should just go into a bomb shelter and wait until it’s over. But we’re going on 13 years of medical and financial crises and it’s wearing. I keep thinking there’s an end in sight, but it’s always another train barreling down on us.

          • I do hope that this Spring marks the end of such relentlessness: that the metaphorical trains go down a side line, and give you all a rest.
            It does seem bloody unfair that some people get more train-barrelling than others. No, I change that: it doesn’t SEEM unfair; it IS unfair.
            That train-driver needs to learn to vary his destination a tad.
