oh monday......

Getting any sleep at all while in the hospital is like trying to nail Jello to a tree.
no, even harder than that....ever try to herd cats?

Nurse: "Wake up Mrs. Brechlin, time to take your sleeping pill".
Groggy Me: "Whaaaaa...?"
Nurse: "and here is a 5 gallon bottle of refreshing Contrast to start your day!"
Not-so groggy-now Me: "oh, why thank you."
Nurse: "Do you mind if I blind you by flipping this switch and turning on every imaginable light source in your room even thought it is pitch black out & you were sleeping soundly for once? hmmmm?"
Beginning to get Irritated Me: "Of course not, I love being woken up feeling like I'm under interrogation ~ you go right ahead..."
Nurse: "Oh Mrs. Brechlin, you are so funny!"
Defeated Me: "I'll be here all week...."

And so was this morning's monologue at approx 5:00 {with some liberties taken of course for your sheer amusement, but mostly accurate}
I will be going to have my CT scan this morning. yay. 
fingers, toes, & eyeballs crossed that we will find me able to leave the comforts of my confine-of-late and head to my beloved farmhouse. 

I will try to post an update for you later, Hoping you all have a beautiful monday!

here's a snap of Iggy to make us all smile:

Hi Lori!

I symphasize with you, been there many years ago where I was in the hospital being ex-rayed everyday to see if there were any changes, it was like Groundhog Day! Hopefully you won't be trapped too much longer! Love your snap of Iggy!

Prayers and Hugs,

Kimberly said...

Sending healing thoughts and prayers your way. I've had my own tummy troubles recently so I feel (literally) your pain.

Barb said...

I know just what you mean. I had pneumonia several years ago and I thought I might die of fatigue if I didn't get out of the hospital!! I sure hope you will be home very soon.
