Hey all just popped in to see how you all are & see how Greg's recovery is going. I hope the appointment goes well tomorrow & no infection!
I am exhausted & the kid's have winter vacation coming up. 2 weeks home with 6 kids & a sick mom...... not looking forward.
(not risking going anywhere since ppl in my area are way too cavalier about covid)
@missy that is awesome Greg’s pain level has gone down. Sweet. Is he eating okay? It was fun the 4 of us playing cards together. We didn’t wear masks; my friend wears her mask most of the time but she didn’t wear one when she came over here. I probably won’t get the vaccine with all my known allergies and who knows what other ones I have that I don’t know about already? When are you and Greg eligible? Marty’s client won her division but she was the only one in that weight and age category. I did have to work today. Darn. Sasha is looking pretty. I hope the visit with the surgeon goes well tomorrow. That is a lot of laundry every day.
Biopsy shows it is Papillary Thyroid cancer and the entire Thyroid needs to come out. And his parathryoids are enlarged as well as evidenced by his CT scan. Surgeon just called. He wants to save one parathryoid so hopefully he can.
Just praying the cancer hasn't spread but we won't know til the surgery.
The surgeon gave him codeine #3 ridiculous. I mean it's impossible to get real pain meds. I am exhausted fighting the doctors with every thing. We couldn't get an appointment follow up Tuesday so have to wait now til Thursday and he has no thyroid meds. I emailed my endocrinologist but haven't heard back. Can you tell I am frustrated with our health care in general?
Thanks @mary poppins. I asked him last night and he said soft foods like ice cream and soup IIRC but Greg is being very stubborn granted he is in lots of pain. I am trying to do what I can but there is only so much I can fight him when he is feeling so bad. I am just letting him rest in bed for now and not nagging him as much as I want to. Drink, drink, please. Oy.
Tim and I decided to spend this weekend together, doing some odd jobs, hanging out, turning off computers! We've watched a few fun things on TV, caught up on some sleep, gone to our local diner for breakfast each morning, and spent time with our (incredibly annoying) dogs.
@missy - I'm glad you're seeing the surgeon tomorrow. The wound looks swollen to me and I don't like that pale yellow haze in the middle. I suspect you're right - that it will need to be drained. Every day on, tho, is one day closer to Greg feeling completely well, so I'm glad to see the days ticking over. How is his headache? is it down from a 3?
@MamaBee - your dryer situation sounds like a complete pain in the neck. I hope it can be resolved for you soon. Will you need to have bookcases removed?? Good grief!
@Austina - how is your dining room going? Please post photos! And I'd love to know in what parallel universe it costs 20k to remake a ring!! Sometimes vendors just assume that customers are stupid. Very, very stupid! I do love the sapphire and diamond idea, tho - you can't beat a classic!
@junebug17 - I'm glad to hear you don't have any momentous news. In these times, no news is definitely good news! I hope you enjoyed your extended phone catch-ups and that it felt - at least a little - like having a good natter in person.
@bling_dream19 - looking forward to seeing your spinel set - it sounds gorgeous! And I love any setting with pear sides! I regularly think about resetting my 3 stone with pears, but honestly, at this point, motivation is low. I have a few projects coming up, but even those aren't spiking my interest that much. At the moment, all I want is a 5 star hotel right on a beach somewhere. Anyway, I'll live vicariously through you when it comes to jewelry. Do you have a time frame?
Shout out to @canuk-gal, @Slick1, @Daisys and Diamonds, @Bayek, @oakleaf79, @kipari, @Scandinavian, @rainwood, @marcy (any news on the truck?), and @springerspaniel! I hope you're all well and hanging in there!
Temps here have been comparatively mild for MA at this time of year, but we've been getting brisk winds coming straight down from Canada, so it feels colder than the forecast temperatures. Regardless, I've been hanging around outside, stalking my neighbor's new rescue dog - Murphy - for whom I have developed a weird obsession. He's a complete darling and, for some reason i don't understand, has decided he adores me! He's normally very shy, but he just crawls straight into my lap! The love is mutual, so now I hang around outside, waiting for his afternoon walk, shamelessly stalking him!
I took a photo while waiting for him to walk past, then a couple more of today's rings when he'd gone.
Wishing you all a wonderful week!
The3.01 came back from GIA..It’s an F! It also came back a VS2 instead of a VS1. Brian said he thought it was a VS1 too and agreed with AGS. I’ve seen so many plots that are nasty and they are VSIs..I’m convinced it’s a clean VS1. In any case it’s a AGS VS1...and a true F! I’m excited to get it!
sorry for the many messages, I am just in shock of all that has gone on in 4 weeks and I feel bad and should have been here.. my apologies.. the best of the best are here in NIRDIs.
love you all. Kate
Can’t believe it’s already Wednesday, the week’s are flying by
Having a lazy day today, just getting some washing done, made some leek and potato soup for lunch, and will probably binge watch something this afternoon with my feet up.
