It’s been a quieter day than I expected. I’d thought the aide had said she’d be back today but I guess I was wrong. I thought I was once, but I was mistaken. The pharmacy manager was supposed to call me. Of that, I’m certain, but he didn’t. So I still don’t know whether Cuz will have to take my business elsewhere or not.
My stomach still hasn’t felt good so I played it safe with water, crackers, Sprite, Cream of Wheat, applesauce and toast. Instead of my multigrain bread, I requested some of Cuz’ wheat bread since I figured it would be less harsh on my stomach.
This afternoon, I settled down to watch the first episode of the fifth season of Call the Midwife on Netflix. It had been broadcast on PBS in April but I hadn’t been aware of that or I could have watched it online. The last season had ended rather ominously with the doctor rejoicing with his nurse wife over the effectiveness of the new anti-nausea drug for pregnant women, Thalidomide. I won’t go into what happened on this first episode because my roommate also watches it and I don’t think she’s watched this season yet. I will say I’m thankful all of my pregnancies took place after its effects were known.
Before she left, Cuz had told me she’d be late getting home. I thought she meant LATE late but she was here by 7 TT or so. She had brought the other two handsets and their charging bases down and the phones were fully charged. I had her bring one of the bases in here and another of the handsets. Now, I have one by my chair and the other on my bed. I slept with it on my bed last night and it didn’t fall off so it should be okay the way it is.
After I was dosed with my cough medicine, Cuz hugged me good night and closed the door. She’d brought me a full glass of water for tonight and a half for in the morning. When I took my doxepin, some of the water went down the wrong way and I started choking. Since it sounded much like my usual coughing, there was no way to let anyone know I was in trouble. I finally was able to clear it and I was okay again. If I really were in trouble…
Guess I should focus on the positive. The oil for my nose came today and I positively think it isn’t going to help any more than any of the other stuff I’ve tried. When I cough, my nose runs and when it runs, I have to blow it and that takes the oil with it. Guess I’ll just have to put up with a bloody nose.
I still have half a glass of water to drink. I’d better get to it. I’ve merged the bulletin with the announcements and emailed/posted it on Facebook. Tomorrow, if I can summon the energy, I need to correct the Sabbath School lesson for the fourth Sabbath of the current quarter.
And the beat goes on.
