Evidence I’m still alive… From Oct. 25-ish or so (lemme check that as though it matters :0)
Not gonna lie, been a real tough stretch. But I’m keeping my hands and brain active by doing simple tactile little tasks. In this case, putting some clearcoat on some more signs for yet another sign post and pouring an extra batch of soy wax on some fire starters just in time for the first woodstove of the year in honor of 4th (or 5th) visit from buddy Renegade Ted (who took most snaps included herein & i captured from his FB round-up post). But you should check his Notes from the Nog travel writer bloggity blog.
PS And dig that cassette player/radio hanging up. It doesn’t really work well but I still try to tune in like I’m gonna connect with some short wave radio + And that’s a trucker hat representing The Matinee & Tshirt is REM Chronic Town
Left hat in m-i-l’s car (dropped me off en route to table tennis) so my fwa-fwa hair gives me full mad scientist vibes
Outfit pretty cute though / greens, blues & browns
Gosh, the staff/nurses are so incredibly skilled so today was rather rare but had a mishap getting the spike into my arm, required a couple of tries. First time ever for that. They apologized 75 times. All good, wrapped it up tightly / looks like long wait for next checkpoint
Let’s have a simple lunch (not enough time for my usual place across the streets… but there are several restaurants embedded in the hospital)
Fast forward: finished at the hospital and now riding bus to collapse at home
Briefly: Messed up date with hospital appointments (every time, like lining up dominos to get all doctors/injections/tests lined up on same day and was supposed to be here last Friday) getting some of the stuff done today but means back here again next Friday. Very discouraged :(
The hospital staff were super accommodating and got me in for “cocktail injection” and with Chinese Medicine Doctor who reviewed my memo and gave a thorough exam of abdomen, pulses and tongue.
TCM Doctor told me pulses are very weak and shallow, my body is fighting and trying but needs rest + Hot Springs and protein.
I’ll be back next Friday to finish up the parts of the visit didn’t get done this time including inquiries about options for IVIG & Ozone therapy.
A little collage of printed postcards from the #BCInvasion trip.
Still haven’t really processed, digested, remixed, create-i-fied from this journey but, happenstance offered a moment to print & hang a few of my darlings above the writing desk, pinned to a Bedouin shroud.
