(That’s you all.)
Just wanted to thank everyone who commented/emailed/called/tweeted after that last post – your kind words and support got me through the past few days. It was kind of amazing to get such an outpouring from friends and strangers alike – warms my heart, I tell ya. Maybe this world isn’t as crazy as the news would have us believe.
Sis went into surgery this morning, got a couple fairly unnecessary organs removed. We should know in a few weeks – once she’s all healed up – whether they were the actual cause of the pain or not. Kind of odd that surgery is being used as a way to rule things out – “well, can’t be her gallbladder because she doesn’t have one!” – but there was really no other option. She’s still pretty miserable, in a lot of post-surgery pain, but she goes home tomorrow. I think that will help.
And I am back home as well, surrounded by some kittens who clearly missed me like the dickens. Finn is at school until Friday, but that’s probably for the best – gives me a few days to decompress and return to a functioning human being before she’s back. Though I have to go to work tomorrow, and I’m dreading it, it will be nice to get back into a routine that doesn’t involve hospital food.
And now, just because we could all use a peaceful view every once in a while…
View from the train on my way home from work. How can I move there?
