I am back but buried. By the time y'all read this, I will have been through my "human pin cushion" routine at Dr. Jody's office. Tomorrow is annual bone scan day to see if the touch of osteoporosis in my hip has become worse and "feed the A- vampire" day. The latter was interesting because the lab FedExed the kit for it to me for the lab. I hope they leave me a bit for personal use. (giggle)
Barb and I didn't do much -- partially because I would up in the ER dehydrated as hell and partially because she really didn't feel like going out which I blame on her alleged family who don't do much to help get her out. It's, for me, the ghost of Christmas yet to come. Then again, she isn't really feeling well which I am in sympathy with because I don't feel like running much either these days and prolly should have stayed home. We did join the Octogenarians for dinner at Inky's, a well-known Toledo Italian restaurant that serves great steaks as well pasta extraordinaire. It was fun and a serious yum. And the service was excellent for a very busy Friday night!!!!
The trip north was uneventful -- my new route was pretty great -- other than my usual terror of The Bridge from Hell and, I had the delight of meeting my good blog friend Gene for excellent Mexican food in Bellevue. She is always a delight to and our waiter let us yak our little hearts out.
I have to find a better way in and out of town that avoids that damned bridge. The mere thought of it set me shaking so badly that I wound up calling my ex and he and some friends came up to get me and Miss Ruby and I took us all out for dinner at my neighborhood Greek place -- a serious yum -- when we got back. Unless I find a better route, I don't think that I'll be traveling up there again. Sigh. I hate this stuff. Michelle called in the morning to see if I was okay after she saw that the ex brought me home. And when I see Dr. Maria next week, I have to talk to her about the dehydration. I think one of my meds is causing. I'm pretty sure that's the culprit.
At any rate, I made it home safely and am doing much better and will be running all week between blood work and appointments. That said, I'm going to do my best to get caught up with y'all as soon as possible!!!
