ALMOST ON MY WAY
Every year about this time I make a post about all the things I have to do to get ready for my winter trip to Florida. This year is no different but I've had lots of additional stress. Here is some of what has gone on while I was trying to do my thing.

When I went to see my internist for a final check-up I told him how very exhausted I have been feeling. I've always complained about my low energy level but this was even more pronounced. SO, being the thorough doctor that he is, he had me going for all kinds of blood work and tests. He even wanted me to go for a "sleep study."

Fortunatly when I called to schedule that appointment they could not book me until the middle of December. I won't be here then. Great, if necessary I can do that when I return from Florida! One less test!!

Then there was the time I had to go for a special blood test. The next day the technician called to tell me that an error was made by a new employee - he did not complete the test. They wanted me to come in AGAIN for more blood work.
Time for your shots!
Well, I was very unhappy about that, until a light bulb went on!! I remembered that when a person is not able to come in for the blood work they send someone to the house.

I called the lab, explained what had happened and sure enough they arranged to send someone to the house the next day.

And so it went, one test after another until finally I had an Echocardiagram the day before Thanksgiving. That meant I would not have the results until at least the following Monday.

In the meantime I learned that my internist was having shoulder surgery and had to wait until today to learn about how I did on that test. The doctor called today, he's still recovering from difficult surgery.

He would like me to see a cardiologist to review the Echocardiagram with me before I leave town. Will let me know when he can arrange that! Has to be before Thursday!

There's more stress, but that's enough for now!!

Now, to change the subject - A while ago I asked to Steve to order me some new calling cards ( I don't call them business cards because I have no business).

My Mom's Business Card! @milliegarfield
Last time he ordered them for me there was no charge. This time I asked him to add some additional information to the card and lo and behold there was a charge for printing and shipping 250 new cards.

Now I have a challenge - I have to meet a LOT of new people!!

Once I get settled in Florida I hope to making a sunny post!!

I sure hope there will be more sunshine and less stress by the time you get to Florida. Oy vey, this is too much for the month of November, one headache after another. It will all work out though.
 
Calling cards. How charming. Maybe I should try those. But no one ever offers me a card, so do not know how I would approach that.
 
It's nice to have calling cards and yours look good. I sure hope that the results of your echocardiogram will not be even more stressful! I had one about 14 years ago and discovered I have MVP. No problems, though. Safe travels to FL,Millie.
 
My cousin recommended this blog and she was totally right keep up the fantastic work!

I share your pain and that's why I decided to stay home this winter.

Have a safe and pleasant journey to the warm state.
 
Can relate to so much you share.
First, I also have a calling card :) I have recently gone through test like you. What they found is very high inflamation.
So took a 6 day treatment of predsone which helped. It is an immune disorder.
Thinking of you and enjoy the warmth of Florida. My daughter in Tampa wants me to visit - but just do not like leaving home...
 
I have every confidence that you will meet lots of people to distribute those cards to!

You gave me a big smile when you sid I'd meet lots of people to give those calling cards to.

"I wish" I'll keep you posted.;-)
 
Hope all is going well. Maybe you're in Florida now, or will be soon.

Calling cards sound like a good idea. Seems nothing is free anymore.
 
Happy Moms realize that the days are long but the years short. It's not that they are impervious to stress, it's that they have learned to lower their expectations and be in the moment when things get difficult. When your toddler is puking all over the house, this is not the time to reorganize the hall closet. A sick day then turns into a time to create sweet memories of hours spent reading and cuddling on the couch.
 
How charming....
 
Hi Millie,

I heard the weather is lovely in Florida and I hope you have settled in.

Would love to hear more about your adventures this season!

Love,
Irene
