First off a BIG Thank You to cardiogirl who commented on yesterday’s post something to the effect of ‘so take your darned meds and maybe you won’t be tired all the time’. And of course she’s probably right about that, at least partially. Though from my end it’s never that simple. For one thing, at the moment, I am out of several of my meds and it won’t be possible for me to go pick them up until payday on Wednesday morning. But even when I am not out, I am just terrible about forgetting to take my pills. Ron and I both have little plastic trays with little boxes for morning, afternoon, evening and bedtime x 7 days/week. And having the pills all laid out like that definitely helps, but even so sometimes I just don’t think about it.
Work today was blessedly abbreviated since Ron had a doctor’s appointment this afternoon and I left for the day at 1pm instead of my usual 3:30. The cardiac surgeon says Ron’s recovery is going well, though he was pretty critical with Ron for having gained ten pounds. I fell so bad for my sweetie. He just really craves carbs, poor thing. We didn’t get back from the doctor’s office until around 4pm. Came home, cooked and made dinner and now we are sitting here in front of the tv, both of us looking like we are about to fall asleep any minute. (And the cruel irony of this is that when we go to bed in a couple of hours, chances are we will both be Fully Awake and not much in sleeping mode. Thankfully I do have some Trazadone left and that should put me out.)
Meanwhile I am looking forward to seeing Staci tomorrow, though being the day before payday we will be very limited in what we can do. Ah well. Hope this find your work week off to a good start. Happy Monday.
