Even though I am writing both posts for the 14th and 15th in one sitting, the 15th deserves its own post.
Yesterday was a sort of “up and down” day. I spent a good amount of time on the phone trying to get in to see a specialist sooner than next week to have George checked out. I have a friend in the area whose sister is a doctor and she recommended a few great specialists for me who she trusts. The only problem is that getting in to see them ASAP is not easy.
I am not in a panic over George or really worried about what it could be or what it is going to take to get him out of there, but at the same time, I still have concerns, especially since I know nothing about this thing, or how difficult it is going to be to extract it.
The day picked up as it wound down, though. I met my fabulous Aunt Laurie for dinner so that I could give her the disc of my scans. She works with some of the best doctors in the nation, probably the world, and has promised to get it into their hands. She has always looked out for me and had nothing but my best interest at heart. Talk about a woman to admire, though. Strong, independent, smart, great style and appreciation for fashion, animal lover and rescuer, the list goes on. (And I don’t just say these things because she is a reader of my blog). She is honestly a wonderful person, and it was so great to see her. (That is the “new” for day 15, a new restaurant where we met).
Feeling amazing and recharged from my dinner (fabulous women will do that to you), I arrived home to find all of the lights off, candles lit throughout, and the house clean. I walked in to the living room to find Paul hanging out with the dog and cat, and he had set up a, for lack of better term, “snuggle spot”. He knows I have been a little bit stressed, not feeling so great, and just figured I could use a relaxing, tranquil space to unwind from the day. Does it get any better?
I have amazing people in my corner, and no matter how benign or bad George turns out to be, I will always have these wonderful people to fall back on.
