Like I said before, even in recovery mode I'm very busy! This is the first day in three days where I've actually had time to write anything.
All week I've been either interviewing potential employees or trying to set up interviews. And then one of my regular employees had an emergency, so things had to be arranged to cover her shifts.
I've been speaking with OTs and social workers re finding funding for my medical expenses, like nurses and bags and feeds for my G-tube. Now I need to look into getting a ceiling lift too.
Even though it's been almost 4 years since Mom passed away I'm still prodding the accountant to finish up everything. Plus I had to go to the bank and get a monthly statement for my landlord to prove I'm not actually making millions of dollars.
Going to the bank was fun though. It was the first time I'd been outside in over two months! Today my dietitian increased my feed rate so it runs for eight hours, and said that I can take a break after four hours and maybe go outside again for longer periods of time!!! Plus, I'm arranging for another swallow test. I'm hoping to get off the feeds altogether or at least eat a bit orally.
Now I'm going to write emails, write to you tomorrow!

Friday, March 18, 2016
Yesterday I was going to post notes from the six weeks that I spent in the hospital. (Yes, I was in the hospital with pneumonia and other complications.) I was also going to post pictures of me getting my hair cut. After my very stressful time in the hospital and recovering at home, cutting my hair felt like a fresh start. While it was happening I listened to Pink sing "Try" and "Shake it Out" sung by Florence and The Machine, which mirrored my emotions perfectly.
I was going to do all of this, but Bruce visited me, Leon dropped by unexpectedly, and I trained a new employee as well. Even in recovery mode, I can't stop being busy.
I'll post the photos tomorrow ....
