It snowed today – all day. Peeking through the blinds in the early hours of the day, the snow made me happy. And a big part of the day, Mom and I spent hanging out in the living room, enjoying the sight of swirling flakes, chatting, and drinking hot tea. I lit my Rewined candle, enjoying the beautiful Cider-y aroma. Total snowfall hovered between 1.5-2.5 inches locally, and I’m interested to see what happens tomorrow weather-wise.
My body is doing OK today – I spent a bit of time in the bathroom, my GI system re-regulating itself after being on pain meds for my stubborn UTI and ear surgery. I’m grateful for Colase. Thankfully, both UTI & ear from a pain-perspective are doing better. And this week Wednesday, my stitches are removed, so that’s also awesome. My skin is still irritated and sensitive, a slight rash covering both arms that were exposed to cashmere. I’ll continue to apply Triamcinolone; otherwise, my facial skin is much better, the rosacea medicine and Eucerin face lotion both helping with dryness and sensitivity. Later, Mom and I watched Top Chef, visited the snowy roof, and enjoyed a Zoom date with Dad and Andy where I joked about my magical elf ear. It’s my final Sunday night here in Bethesda – this next week I’m in the Clinical Center Monday and Thursday, and at Walter Reed on Wednesday. We return home on Friday – and I can’t wait.
Make it a wonderful week everyone!
