I photographed these dried but still lovely blossoms on my way to get a haircut, my first activity of the day. At least I will look neat while away. Some more distressing insurance news (not about the surgery), then a call from cousin Sharon telling me all will be well and that's she'll be thinking of me tomorrow. Then I realized that I hadn't washed some sweaters that I usually live in, so it was back to Lex's house to do more delicate laundry. I got my prescriptions, bought them a fresh carton of milk, and then read a book while waiting for the laundry to be done. I came home to a lovely message from Gena and Terri wishing me well. And now I'm working up the energy to take the anti-bacterial shower that's required tonight and tomorrow.
All my friends on Blip have been so encouraging and your well-wishes feel so good. If anyone could make this ordeal bearable, it is all of you. I love you for that.
