And She’s Off

By Tessa Dean October 2020

Marjorie’s blond curls bounced as she made her way to the pink boat moored at the marina. Today was a school holiday, and Marjorie and her mother had come to the bay to look around. It wasn’t long before Marjorie had slipped her small hand out of her mother’s and took off running towards the water.

“Marjorie, no!” her mother shouted while a pickpocket tried to grab her purse. She looked up, just in time to see her child sailing away on the pink boat. She threw her purse at the guy and ran, screaming at the boat to stop.

One-Liner Wednesday – The Thing Nobody Talks About

Badge by Laura @ riddlefromthemiddle.com

I am so glad to be out of the hospital and in my own bed although I am spending more than 18 hours at a time in it.

(I have sleep apnea and have had it for 15-20 years and if I don’t get it under control it just might kill me, no kidding. The doctor was dead serious, no pun intended.)

The Weekly Smile for the 12th of October, 2020

The Weekly Smile for the 12th of October, 2020

My smile for this week is finally getting out of the hospital after 6 weeks. (I actually got out on October 1, but I was feeling really bad and didn’t do much except sleep which is weird since all I did in the hospital was sleep as well.). People would stand there calling my name and I would sleep right through it and then one brilliant nurse got this idea that maybe she could check my blood sugar without waking me up. I doubt she will try that one again. I came up punching. I am so done with hospitals right now. I thought 10 days was bad, but 6 weeks takes the cake. At least I got out before my birthday.

News Flash – Just spent 6 weeks in hospital

It wasn’t good news. I have congestive heart failure. I was on oxygen and it took almost 4 weeks in a rehab hospital to wean me off the oxygen. I still have some problems breathing, coughing, temperature (some possibly due to a flu shot), swelling in the feet and legs. I had four Covid 19 tests. All negative. They are very painful. I haven’t felt like writing and after 6 weeks in bed 24 hours a day, most days, I am having a hard time readjusting to the real world.

I have to find a cardiologist now. I have to have another sleep test since my sleep apnea is slowly shutting down my organs and I need to get it under control.

I got my hearing aids today although I am feeling scared to put them in.

I have a huge list of doctors to see. This is not helping my depression.
