... and not all there.
I haven't visited many of you lately - I'm sorry and I miss you.
I also have a bunch of scintillating posts started but not a single one is publishable as is. Things are a bit chaotic at the moment.
My son and his wife have painting and carpentry going on in preparation for new baby - July 1 is headed at us fast.
Even though the work is all being done on their side of the house the mess and disruption manages to spill over. We're also making room in my basement office for my son's desk and computer set-up.
I hope I'm in the home stretch of the disability application process. My medical records are in the hands of their doctors and the last few documents they asked for are actually things I have since I know what they are.
Of course this doesn't include the part of the process that involves the state - this is my private policy - but I truly can't think about that right now.
I normally don't sleep much but I have really not slept this week. This has added to the fuzzy head and lackluster creativity.
My ankle swelled up again last week and I had to bite the uninsured bullet and go see the doctor. Seems it is "disproportionately deformed" and my knee is so far out of place it could be on someone else's body. Charming.
I need knee joints replaced and reconstructive surgery on the ankle and most likely need hip replacement as well. Hip Replacement!? That's so Liza Minelli.
As if on cue I came back from the doctor and pulled yet another muscle in my back. This is a chronic problem brought about by my "deformities" - I am not an animal - and by the pressure put on an already curved spine from my "compromised gait" - maybe I'm a horse?
So it leaves me a wee bit uninspired and makes computer time tiring.
And that's about all I got at the moment.
I do know that there is always light at the end of the tunnel - even if it's just the oncoming train.
