It's true - I got nothing to talk about. Can you believe it that chatty Janene has been somewhat silenced? Actually, things have been happening. It's not as though my world has come to a screeching halt. Dan came back from Minnesota this weekend and he and the girls stayed at our house. They all took off earlier today and went to lunch and then bowling. I got to visit with Nina the other day, when she returned from her fab vaca, and sis-in-law Zonna called from Florida and chatted for a while. Little Ma came over last night and visited with everyone. Sister Sandy and Jenna check in on me by phone daily, so I am very well in the loop with things going around me.
The fact is that I have to sit a lot. I mean A LOT! If these darn drains keep flushing out too much lymphatic fluid, I will be wearing them until Christmas! The excess movement speeds up the flow so if I move around and do laundry and dishes or sweep the floor, I am aggravating the situation. The drains can only be removed when I get below a certain level of output, and so far I haven't reached that goal. I am so tired of wearing plastic grenade-like bottles and several inches of tubing coming out of my sides. Yuck! So, I am sitting and staying fairly still to let everything subside. Most women report that they only have to wear this equipment somewhere between a few days and a week, but I am going to be at two weeks, when I visit my two surgeons on Monday. I was thinking earlier about all those poor women who have ever been confined to bed rest during weeks or months of their pregnancies. What a job that would be!
I had to run to Fareway yesterday and took Cate along with me. She had to carry my purse (I can't lift anything over ten pounds and I'm afraid that it exceeds that limit), and push the cart and put stuff in the basket. When we got home, she brought in all the bags and put things away for me. Sweet!! Right now she is making some pork stroganoff for supper. Sweet again! :)
Talking about my heavy purse has got me curious. Perhaps I should empty it out and see exactly what is in there and figure out what makes it weigh so much. I know Zonna's purse is incredibly heavy. At one time she realized that the bottom three inches of it was filled with loose change, and we all know how heavy coins can be. It she had every swung her purse at someone and hit them, she would have probably killed them!
Well, since I have nothing to say, I will close for now and watch Cate cook.
And I will just sit here really still. Okay?
GOD BLESS YOU ALL
