Greetings, readers. I had a truly unusual morning. Small parts of it were delightful, other parts make me glad that it is therapy day. Here’s what happened.
I got up this morning at my usual time, was in the process of getting dressed, and the next thing I know I’m down on the floor. After saying a few choice words in frustration, I got up, finished getting dressed and I took my meds. I felt fine up until that moment. The reason for what happened is one of two things. A petit mal seizure which is very unlikely, or, my guess, I passed out from a momentary drop in blood pressure. Either way, we will be making doctor’s calls as soon as this entry is published.
Am I overly concerned? Not really. But I do have two trips coming up, one in July and one in August, and I would like to have options for my transportation. I hate to feel restrained and restricted. When I have mornings like this, I feel like calling off everybody and packing it in. But I am not a quitter, so I dust myself off and continue. I never have been a quitter, not even from childhood. I wasn’t very good at sports, but I was out there every day playing Nerf football or Whiffle ball.
I’m a little bit apprehensive about what the doctors will tell me to do. Luckily I have an appointment with a heart doctor tomorrow. What I don’t want for this weekend is for him to order a battery of tests. If he does, I’ll have to deal with it.
After meds and coffee, I literally fought with my computer all morning. Just when I thought I was able to work on some personal projects, my computer would run updates and need to restart. Oh, bloody hell! After a while, it almost became laughable. By 10:30, I shut down what I was trying to do and just listened to music. Things got better, as I met my girlfriend for coffee at Panera while we waited for Rebecca to arrive. The three of us chatted and had a pleasant time. I seem to have turned the corner from my frustrating morning and hopefully the rest of today will be more normal. Wish me luck.
As I wrote yesterday, we have a day off tomorrow. So until Wednesday, take care, enjoy the next few days, and happy reading.
