How Tired Is Cathy?


I feel like I've been on the "go" since Monday at 5 am. My work schedule is all out of whack, that's for sure.

Michael's heart cath went well - he was up and about as soon as the doctor said OK. There was a slight pressure increase in the right side of the heart, but nothing like they expected. Since Michael has ruled out being a "guinea pig", there's nothing more to do. He's insistent the cath is the last medical procedure he will agree to. I took him to Golden Corral for his birthday meal - he loves that place. I haven't finished his train quilt yet - have one more side to handsew on the binding. Perhaps finish that tonight.......

Once I was certain Mr. Michael was going to be OK by himself at home, I agree to accompany Andrea and her buddies to the midnight movie premier - Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Talk about a madhouse - but it was fun and the movie was enjoyable. I surprised myself by staying awake for it. By the time I got home at 3:30, I was beat and that alarm going off at 8 am - UGH!!!!

My gynecologist is definitely recommending a hysterectomy. It's my choice when. So, I looked at the vacation calendar at work to see what weeks have the least number of folks out. I'm going to talk to our department VP tomorrow - the same one who terminated the underwriters last week. I want his agreement that just because I need to take a short medical leave, he's not going to put the hammer down on my job. I'm paranoid, yes, but so is everybody else in my department.

I think I'm going to tidy up a bit around the house, sew a spell and get to bed early.

Sounds like a good plan!

I get tired just reading about all the things you've been doing. I'll keep my fingers crossed that things go well.
Trust me when I say the hystarectomy will be the best thing you've ever had done. Still keeping all of you in my heart.

I agree with with Cindy. A hustarectomy will be a good thing. It was for me. Cat I know you are going through a ruff time now but things will get better. Some how some tine down the road for sure!

Well, I am glad that the heart cath went ok, but what a bummer that it didn't show what was expected. I hope that the new doctor can convince Michael to whatever line of treatment he thinks is best!

I'm glad that you had a little time to enjoy the movie and dinner! I think I may treat myself to the movie this weekend ... well, maybe not. I think it will be another long weekend at the shop. :(

Cathy, I agree with Cindy and Fern. I never regretted having my hysterectomy. I think you're doing a spectacular job of getting up each morning and facing whatever the day might bring. Your faith and strength is an inspiration. Hugs to you, friend!
