Catscan done…I can’t say I was brave but it really wasn’t my fault. Normally you just go in and you don’t have to change clothes. I had on a top with tiny little metal buttons. I wore it purposely because I thought it would be the perfect cat scan outfit. But because of the metal buttons I had to put on a huge navy robe…ick ick ick. Hated the style as well as the color and it was all my fault. Then I sat next to a sweet little lady who was waiting for her husband who was having an MRI. We chatted. Her story was sweetly sad. She said that she was seriously ill a while ago and her family had to wait for her. She survived so now she waits in waiting rooms for her family. That was what she could do for them. So that made me think of Den…who is always there…and my sister Paula who drives for six hours to see me…and my brother Jim…who always calls before a cat scan just to calm me down and my sisters in law Betsy and Kathy…who text and say prayers and light candles. And Den’s sister Roseanne who sends praying hands emojis and angels. And all of my blogger friends who send strength and virtual hugs and prayers. It’s amazing! And my FB friends who always pop up with encouragement and more prayers. And all of my friends from McDonald, Ohio especially Karen and Mary Jo and Shirley…I love you all and just the idea that when I go into that scary scary catscan room…I carry you all with me.
Anyway…that sweet little lady made me cry…in the waiting room…so now she is praying for me, too. And when the nurse came to get me I had to tell her that the sweet little lady made me cry and then we were all laughing again.
Thank God it’s done! Of course I don’t know results and won’t know them until next Wednesday.
That could be a whole other cryfest! Yikes! But I promise I will not mention cat scans again!
Although I started the books I said I was going to start…I sort of wandered away from them…for a while…
I don’t even know why but I started this…it’s heavy into hurricanes and horses…and I will never run up to a horse again. I will let him come to me. Thank you, Mary Alice!
I also have been getting quite a few real books in the mail. I keep putting these aside for ebooks…
But I started these and they are both so good! I had to tear myself away from Girls With Sharp Sticks…it reminded me of The Stepford Wives! But I also love Charles Lenox mysteries. So…that’s my bookish dilemma!
I am not cooking this week end…we are foraging in the freezer! And Den is going to zip to the Amish Market tomorrow for their chicken for Sunday dinner. Yum! I don’t even care that it is fried or broasted…it’s just so good and a tad bit spicy!
Have a great weekend…I will see you on Monday!
