A Better Night

An hour after I went to bed, I got up for a soak in the tub. A couple of hours later, I woke up, dried off and tried it again. That time, I was able to sleep for a little while, at least. The next time I woke, I took a tablet of melatonin (I thought I had some liquid but I don’t) and it helped ease me back into the Land of Nod.

It’s my schedule to take my morning meds at 8 o’clock so I got up and took ’em. Then I went back to bed and slept for another hour or more. That made breakfast very late but it made ME feel better, so there.

I made up the bed for the first time since Friday and it was in an awful tangle. It looked so nice when I finished but I had the urge to occupy it again so I did. I have for half an hour or so after each meal, too. I have a terrible dread of my reflux coming back and sitting in this chair doesn’t help. It would be nice to have a recliner for those times and not have to tear up the bed but that’s how it is.

My walk to the mailbox was rewarded by a statement from the hospital. They are still trying to collect on my inpatient stay ($8074.02) which has been denied by my insurance. It should all get straightened out in the end but it would help if they’d bill things correctly to begin with.

In lieu of flowers for my BIL, my sisters and I are all three donating to either the American Diabetic Association or the American Heart Association. I chose the former and got it done today. It was quite a process and made more so because I chose to have a printed card mailed to the family. It’s done, though, and I’m glad.

DS1 and I have texted some today. That qualifies as contact, right?

Late this afternoon, it clouded up and there was a brief shower. I thought that was being stingy when it started thundering. I thought surely there would be some good rain but nothing. Then the storm passed by and, to all appearances, it was over but then the rain came. It’s pounded down off and on since. The temperature has cooled off to 65 degrees though it’s still 76 in the house. That’s bearable, though, and I think it’s time to test it out.

    I also thought it was quite a procedure to get through donating and having a printed card sent, but I thought it was just my ineptitude. Makes me feel better that you felt the same way, as you are better than I am at such things.

    Sleep well tonight, and that’s an order! Actually, a prayer.

      The site isn’t very user friendly but I guess it isn’t something we’ll be doing again.

      I’ll try to sleep, for sure. And thanks for the prayer!
