Afternoon. I had a new patient appointment with a new PCP today and I think I'm going to like him. I felt like he listened, and I am hoping we can work together to figure out my arm. Which is still edematous (about 1-2+) and dusky in color. He is the first provider to show any concern about my daily headaches, too. He is going to try to move up my vascular specialist appointment (not holding my breath on that one) and wants me to get a head CT. And I got my A1C drawn. I am curious if it has gone down since losing 30 pounds, eating healthier and exercising daily.
The weather is cooler and breezy today. I put on a hoodie to eat lunch out on the deck. There are some puffy clouds in the sky that may build into thunderheads as they meet the mountains. I have a virtual meeting with the union at 3:30 today to discuss taking furlough time for the rest of the year. My employer, the county, is trying to cut the budget so they want everyone to take 32 hours of furlough between now and the end of the year, and they are strongly discouraging vacation. They have acquiesced to 5 days of vacation this summer, but really want people to use furlough time (not get paid) instead.
COVID case number are steady at about 5-7 a day. I saw a facebook post from a friend about a former ICU nurse coworker now an ICU patient. He is 30 something, in good shape. This has been one of my biggest worries with community members flouting mask wearing.
Joe, isn't a good night's sleep wonderful?! So restorative. And seemingly elusive for many of us.
Tweety, thank you for the pier story. Your pier reminds me of the Navy Pier in Chicago. I did a little image search to get an idea of the size. I hope you found outside dining.
Stars, woo-hoo for bursitis zapping! I hope Nannie enjoys the flowers. I wonder if she will recognize your dh?
Herring, that's too bad about your dh's car, but maybe a car would get better milage and be more economical in the long run? Cars, man. My aunt used to say they were like digging a pit that you continually threw money into.
Amo, I would draw the line at okra as well. Otherwise, yum. Unfortunately , my dh won't eat left overs, so I strive to make just enough for a meal. He's kinda weird, in some ways, but I'm used to it.
Happy rest of your day, all!
