It’s a good life

I wish everyone was as lucky as I am. I Went to the orthopedist this morning and he shot steroids into both hips. I came home made a cup of coffee and grabbed a protein bar. I am curled up on my bed reading a book on my iPad while my once a month cleaner is doing the heavy scrubbing while my dog is behaving like the princess she is. I am a little chemo’y so I will spend a lot of downtime today, well at least until the steroids kick in. I have two good books to read and a bunch of streaming things to watch plus some DVD to take care of. And Frank just came in to bird watch.

Do you know how many people are lucky enough to be able to do whatever they need to do? Not enough.

  1. I am glad that you have all that you have. I am really glad that you know how to appreciate the good in your life. I think you being positive creates more positive life force in you. I try to follow your example. I am not as good at it as you are.

    I am grateful for the sun today. And that Craig is happier today. He is getting a new yo yo today.

    I hope you are feeling better today.

      1. Today is much better day. The gallbladder is very quiet. The legs don’t have fire shooting down the sides today. Even the guts are well behaved today.

        Craig and his yoyo make me smile. πŸ˜€

  2. You’re right. I am so glad you are able to though.
    You know how I am home now because of the damn migraine / light thing. I have really so few of them now, only because I am lucky enough to be able to not work in them day after day. I feel guilty because I have that choice and not everyone does. i once talked to my doctor about disability. But I didn’t force the issue because…well when i’m not in the lights I feel good so how can I complain when there are ppl who just being out of work doesn’t stop their pain or whatever they’re going through? So I just count myself as really really lucky.
    On a side note…that doc told me I needed to look for a job where there weren’t bright lights. and I asked if she could think of one. She looked at me very seriously and said, “Well my son digs up artifacts in the rain forest” Couldn’t help it, I burst out laughing and asked if he could get me in. (my doc is totally an aspie)
    But yeah, life IS good.
