Quick Fly By
My husband is a nut for pirate talk..argh!...military speak,' guy co' speak which is what I call guy-type comedy movies like --Airplane, Monty Python, Jim Carey's "Pet detective" and "Cable Guy". He also is in to old Agatha Christie Movies and various other things. I quote tv like the Sopranos or Star trek, 80's songs and movies, as well as bits and pieces from my own family heritage which is Jewish and southern bell and redneck country girl. So "our language" is sprinkled with all of the above as well as in the voices and mindsets of our pets. Weird and funny and maybe goofy. but us.
So the quick fly by is military speak for today . today is my last work day for the week and then begins vacation until 5/7. I have a few days at home to get things done and appointments and then off to savannah and the beach. So, I've been up since 6 something a.m. working. Stopped by to say "Greetings earthlings".
Tummy is slightly sore but feels almost healed today, so far. Yesterday, I had all the symptoms of appendicitis, cholecystitis, Diverticulitis, and a urinary tract infection though all of this was mild compared to the day before and the day before that. If my temperature had gone up or I had become nauseated, I was heading to the hospital. I know these symptoms because I assess people every day with them, and mine were just below the point that needed medical attention. ( I ran it by another nurse friend and she concurred ) . Today , I have my md appt and will gladly let her make her decision and curse me if I should have come in earlier. As a nurse, I'm very afraid of going to the hospital and surgery would have to be if it were the only last hope . that is not a joke, folks. seen too much. nurse for 26 years.
I'm a Geek for many things: Food, Pajamas, Coffee, Chocolate, Movies, Books, getting and being fit and healthy, 80's music, and the list goes on and on .....A nurse, a diabetic, I've lost over 130 lbs and have more to go . And I actually enjoy working out.
I chose the names of Ms. PJ Geek and PJ and Pounds because I have happy memories of childhood, coming in dirty and sweaty from playing in the yard. Then taking a bath, putting on a fresh nightgown and feeling all new again . I felt like a princess. Fresh renewal. .........
All names and situations will be changed to protect the innocent and the guilty, and so I can keep my job. While I am a nurse, I do not intend this to be a blog with specific directions or guidelines for healthcare. And.....though I have a college degree, that was a long time ago ya'll, and I don't remember proper punctuation or grammar.
