it really was a good day - it zipped by until about 1:30 when it slowed to a crawl, but a lot happened in the meantime. andrews came to see me this afternoon. she usually stops in medical records, grabs a cup of coffee and me and we head to the picnic table where we catch up with all that's going on. in ways, i'm still her secretary. if she needs help, i'm there...and will proceed until apprehended.
andrews interviewed for the nursing supervisor job today. i wish her the best and if she really wants the job - i hope she gets it. but from the looks of her, the stress of doing the job in the interim is getting to her. she looked wan. she seemed a little emotional, and after she told me what all had gone on in the past week, i guess there's no wonder. sometimes, i wish i had toughed it out and stayed at hoke where i could help her and still work with the old gang - twinkles and the like. but it occurs to me that durney will retire in another couple of years...and there's no telling who will fill the slot, then. but she needs me, i think...makes me feel like i jumped ship and left my captain to drown.
on a home note, i just came in from the rain a bit ago. i had to untangle spike, who was wrapped around a tree and crying like a baby because he was getting wet. so now he's free, but we're both soaked. my hair is wet, still, and curling. but he and i fared better than the man who went 30 feet up in a tree to rescue his cat - and then couldn't get back down. his girlfriend had to call the fire department to rescue the both of them.
and i have a doctor's appointment on thursday. pain in the left upper quadrant, feeling weak and tired...not sure what it is, but it's time to find out. i've let it go for too long. it hurts to lay on that side.
