I just talked to the mail order pharmacy who are finally shipping out the medicine tomorrow. I sure wished they’d shipped it out on Friday when Dr. Rich called them, but they said “Oh, we have to confirm with the patient before we can send it out. ” Well, why didn’t you just talk to me when I was in his office and he was ordering it then.? They didn’t have a very good answer for that!
I’m not as swollen or full of scary hospital medicines-morphine, so I feel much better. The coughing remains and does wake me up at night sometimes. I include a funny picture of me and two friends I grew up with. It’s funny because I look like the the middle of an oreo cookie with these great “black haired cookies” on either side.
I appreciate all those who checked in with me today and who stayed with me while I was too tired to do anything but sleep. Thanks Jill and Tammy, Christy, and thanks to the Primary Presidency who brought a beautiful bucket of paper flowers from each of the Primary children.
For our 23rd anniversary, September 5, I wanted to get a new mattress, because embarrassingly enough, we haven’t had a new mattress since we got married! Costc has mattresses, but I know Down East has them as well. I’d rather our friends get the business than Costco, so we asked Bill and Alyson about a mattress from Down East, and they were great enough to help us out. Last night was a great nights sleep on a great mattress, and we appreciate them!
I leave you with a quote from Dieter Uchtdorf, 2nd Counselor in the First Presidency of the Church. “Though we cannot understand the meaning of all things, we do know that God loveth his children. ” I am content to be loved by my Heavenly Father, the Savior, and all the remarkable people all around me! Love you–Melanie
