Striking Out

Yesterday, Cuz told me to “sleep on” the formatting problem and maybe a solution would come to me in my sleep. Guess what? It didn’t. It isn’t like something I can approach from a different direction. Code is code is code and it isn’t forgiving. I even tried copying the source from Chrome instead of Firefox and that didn’t help. As soon as I saved it in my 16a folder, it was a disaster. I can work on anything else but not that file. Maybe I’m supposed to retire.

Since I couldn’t work on the helps file, I worked on the large index file the HTML expert had uploaded. I got some formatting issues taken care of before I decided to call it a day.

Cuz hauled off my trash today. I could’ve crawled in and gone with it.

I emailed the person with the 40 mg Nexium and took her up on the offer of her 2.5 month supply. Taking my second dose has been a challenge so I’ve decided to take 40 mg in the morning since it’s supposed to be a once a day medication, anyway. She had taken it that way and said it helped more than anything else she’d tried. The only reason she stopped it is because it made her hair shed excessively. I’ve threatened to shave mine, anyway, so maybe I won’t have to go to the trouble.

The man from the durable medical equipment company stopped by and dropped off some cannulas. I should start using the O2 more. Maybe that would help with my reflux and maybe not.

Bath time was just a little while ago. I’m warm to my core and I should sleep well tonight. Cuz thinks a shower should warm me up, too, but it just gets my skin warm. The warmth of a bath goes all the way to my bones. She also was of the opinion that Dandy Blend should warm my insides but it only takes care of the middle. Nothin’ like a good hot soak in the tub. And she says she’ll work on the leak tomorrow!

It’s supposed to rain after midnight. Then there’s sun in the forecast the rest of the week.

The gastro’s office called this afternoon. I expected to be told the good doctor would be out of the office and I’d need to reschedule but no. It was just a reminder of my appointment later this week.

There’s so much sadness in the world and so many decisions to make. I’m thankful I’m not one of the decision makers. All I can do is pray for them and hope for the best.

    What does Nexium treat? Could look it up, but it ‘s easier to ask my knowledgeable sister.

      GERD. It’s stronger than Prilosec.

    I’m with you on the tub bath! Nothing like a good hot soak to warm you up and soothe the aches and pains–especially with Epsom Salts with Lavender added to the water.
