Surgery is done. Doctor said everything went well. Relieved.
Part of the reason I haven’t been on much is because I have been worrying myself sick.
At this moment, I am in a hospital waiting room while Munchkin is in surgery. She was diagnosed with a pretty severe spinal curve (and by severe I mean 60° curvature) She is undergoing spinal fusion as we speak. I know she’s in good hands, the doctor is very reassuring and competent, with plenty of experience. But this is my baby, my Munchkin, and there is a part of me that is not handling this well because I am a mother and… Well, who hasn’t known a mother to be irrational and overly worried from time to time.
So that’s part of why I haven’t been on.
There’s also the fact that some days, work seems to be hellbound in a handbasket , and some days it literally saps every last drop of energy from me.
But mostly….. I am so far behind on Boardwalk that I can’t face my Speakeasy friends without shame.
Jack Huston as Ben-Hur!!!
I think the young people need so much hope. They’ve lost so much hope they don’t know which way to turn. The older people have thrown up their hands and said, “Look, we did the best we could. So we left you with a lousy this and a lousy that—it’s your world now so straighten it out.” I think it gives people such a helpless, hopeless feeling.
I still have a pulse. I also have a life that is in a bit of upheaval. (I may explain more if I can do it without whining.)
I also have a new chapter of More Than Words.
Thank you for reading.
