I’ve got a super exciting (???) week to attend to.
Tuesday: Three-plus hours of allergy testing – because I’ve been getting sinuses headaches/infections for two years straight and my doctor INSISTED I go.
I’m allergic to RATS.
That’s right! No pet rats for me!
I am NOT allergic to dogs.
(I wouldn’t give up my dogs even if I was!)
I do have some miscellaneous other allergies (to every pollen in the world), but doesn’t everyone?
Wednesday: No PT today because I have a follow-up visit in Los Angeles with my elbow surgeon. He’ll use an ultrasound to see inside my elbow and look at my tendon repair. I hope he says the tendon is past the 50% point of healing because when it is, I get to begin doing more with my arm/hand/shoulder.
Thursday: Consultation with an Ear, Nose, Throat specialist – because the allergist guy insisted they make sure there’s nothing structurally wrong with my sinuses.
(Ummm? I’m absolutely sure there’s not, but I agreed to go under duress.)
Friday: Physical Therapy
In my spare time this week, I’ll also be doing some exciting things like purchasing a new mattress.
LIFE HAS NEVER BEEN THIS FUN!!
On the home front, my pool contractor is showing up occasionally to work on rebuilding/resurfacing the pool.
I’m pretty sure, at this rate, it will take months to complete.
To put it in perspective, if the workers showed up every day and worked all day, the job could easily be completed in two weeks or less.
But, it has already been over two weeks, so ….. months!
I’m very happy because Labor Day is approaching.
After Labor Day the majority of tourists leave Orange County.
I’ll get “my” beaches back. (I hate to visit the beaches in the summer when it’s crowded.)
If my doc clears me for some shooting, the timing could be just about perfect.
Fall is my favorite season!
P.S. Please don’t send me any pet rats. I’m highly allergic!
