I took an extra dose of pain meds around 3:30am which got me comfortable and back to sleep till around 7:30am. So despite being awake at 10:30pm and a couple other times through the night I got pretty good accumulated sleep. I’m struck by how my blog seems to be mostly about my sleeping habits. I look forward to them becoming normalized and boring to me. I can’t imagine you all are that excited by them…
I chatted with DaughterB about some good news she had at 10:30pm and heard from my Girlfriend when I was awake a couple hours later and she was finally getting home. Minneapolis had a blizzard Saturday which closed the airport and while her flight got in ok, it was busy there at the airport with everyone catching up on cancelled flights. I was sad to have missed the blizzard. I like weather. California is pretty mild in the weather department. Except for hot. California does hot pretty well.
For breakfast I used up the last of the chorizo sausage. It was amazing. Uncased chrorizo browned in the pan then 3 eggs and 1/2 avocado sliced over the result. Yummy. I had a checkup appointment with my Cardiologist today. He is a pretty intense guy. Very smart and skilled and has to work really hard at having good bedside manner. He doesn’t just emote much. However, he seemed genuinely delighted that I looked as good as I did, commented I was his easiest case of the day. He said going forward to email if I had any questions but if there were not changes in symptoms (i.e. if I keep feeling fine) then nothing much to talk about. I was pleased. I did a bunch of client work today, or as much as I could, I’m still slow. But it feels good to be productive.
I am finding it is hard to stay motivated with the blog. I’m keeping daily notes but turning them into articles is feeling like a chore. Given these are scheduled two weeks into the future I have a buffer so hopefully before I run out of scheduled articles, I’ll get my act together.
