Now you see it, now you don't.


Is it just me? Or... Did the weekend just seem to FLY by?!?

Ugh

Like a bad penny, Monday is back.

And, what better way to start my day than the threat of freezing rain and the sight of US troops headed to Europe and the Ukraine.

Fantastic!

I got news last night that my Oldest was diagnosed with deep vein thrombosis....

One of the side effects to having COVID.

I can tell he's not taking it as seriously as he should be, and that worries me quite a bit. I'd been telling him to go to the doctor since Christmas and he wouldn't listen to me.

Now he has and, he'll 'get to the pharmacy when he can'.

Not going to lie, my anxiety is kicked up a notch this morning.

What I wouldn't give for a nice little vacation right now.....

Sunshine and beach weather, fruity drink in my hand, the smell of coconut emanating from my skin.

Sigh....

Looks like I'll make the slow crawl to work this morning instead, traveling the icy roads. No fruity drink, no sunshiny weather.

Wish me luck.

Happy Monday!

    Glad to read that your son got his meds for the DVT. Hopefully he takes them like he's supposed to. Not something to mess with.
    You could go to Michaels in Traverse City and see if they have beach décor that you could decorate your office with! Maybe when it's not quite so icy, though.
That's the next challenge.... Making sure he takes them like he's supposed to. These medications are super expensive, and he's supposed to be on them for 6 months. No generics available. Cripes....

    Freezing Rain here as well...Hate winter...Be safe!
The roads weren't too bad on the way to work but they were icy on my way home. You never know what to expect this time of year.... Snow, rain, 40 degree weather, below zero.... And that's all from within my last 7 days.

    I know firsthand that DVT can be life-threatening! There are do’s and don’ts. Blood thinners are vital to help break up the blood clots and prevent a recurrence.
They apparently gave him 3 shots at the ER yesterday and he's on 2 different strengths of Xarelto. I'm super concerned about him, it upsets me that he waited this long to go get it looked at.

True story.... Nose Hairs had actually said I need to get someone to paint a beach mural on my office walls so it's like I'm always at the beach. LOL I would LOVE that!

We've actually started talking about doing something on spring break. Not quite sure where, yet, but I'd like it to be within a semi reasonable driving distance. Maybe a cabin somewhere? B&B? Lots of options.

    Ild join you on that beach with drinks in our hands
    Wave crashing the beach
    Sound of sea bird over head
    The smell of salt water
    Then a sunset walk hand in hand
    Lay on the sand as the moon rises
    My lips kiss your
    Your hands Touch my body
    As the sunrise we are full of sand have
    To run into the water to wash it
    Off our naked bodies
    Xoxoxoxooxox now have a wonderful day 😊
It's good to know I'm not the only one who has beach fantasies. I made it to work and home safe and sound, and you're right. It's the other drivers who are the hazard. Ugh!

He got his meds today, he stopped by my office to let me know he picked them up. It was way worse than I even thought it was. Thankfully the pharmacists filled him in on how serious everything was.

I've never heard of a float spa.... I'm going to have to look that up. It totally sounds like something I would want to do.

I really feel for your oldest son, as I've got problems with the veins in my lower legs which slows down the circulation. I have to wear compression knee length stockings every day.
I hope you make it to that beach asap.
