The Road Before & After Surgery

Accepting That Sometimes...Things Are What They Are.
Mood:  chillin'
Now Playing: Day 2862-Next GP Chapter... Turning Lemons Into Lemonade :)


It's going to be a very long week.

Another early Monday morning start to our very long week.

When I take the time to look a bit back on my life over the years. In which, I try not to do very often. It's very disturbing to come to the reality of just how much my body has endured. Medically speaking. It's even far more disturbing to come to grips with another surgery, another reality that has no chance of being postponed. Not in the very sense when it comes to another infection deep within the bone.

Sigh...or really do I sigh this time? Surely, I have somehow gotten used to this normalcy. My way of living. I guess.

I had predicted this mornings turn of events. More like...another series of the same ole, same ole, events. Medically speaking of course, because so far I have yet to even finish both online businesses. Building two separate websites that once again, have to be postponed, delayed due to medical reasons. Of course, why it certainly always seems to go that way. Am I feeling a bit annoyed, yet sarcastic?.

You bet!

As with anyone who has endured a round or two of chemotherapy or radiation. Ones immune system will always be compromised. Infections are never taken lightly. Infections and the source of infections must be handled careful and urgently. Seems I might not have successfully found myself with a surgical implanted device to help regulate lack of hormones. I may not even found myself at least receiving a surgically implanted port to help minimize lack of absorption with medication, pill form, that is now a substitute for what could not be implanted surgically. But it seems today was just another day when another infection trumped everything.

I may have anticipated, literally expecting this mornings news. However, Eric was the least to expect seeing me go under the knife, one more time, dealing with another infection deep within the bone. It isn't about having a choice in the matter. Surgically, it must be done. As for now, we are looking at another Thanksgiving recovering at home. What a great way to ring in the upcoming holidays! Said...no one...ever. But such as life, you just learn to roll with the punches. What one can no longer control. After all, "It really is, what it is."

So...after two appointments and running far too many errands in order to catch up with life. We made a pit-stop in order for me to stock up on the good stuff! Another round of preparing my body for a long road to recovery. Another round or two of antibiotics until the nurse calls me with my scheduled day of surgery. Doing whatever it takes to prepare myself physically, but also emotionally. It's stressful. Lately, things are getting to be a bit depressing. As most 'normal' human beings. Although...what is really 'normal' anyways. I do the best I can, with what I got.

Tis not a good day today, but there is always...tomorrow.
