Referring back to my last post, the results of my doctor’s appointment was a cross between option #1 and #2. ‘Keep doing what you’re doing, but here’s some more meds!’. This time a cream called Silver Sulfadiazine. He thinks that along with the antibiotics, it will be very effective in working from the outside while the antibiotics work from within. At least that’s the plan!!
So going to the wedding is ON!! I’ll be taking the laptop and hoping the hotel has a connection. If so, it will be blog-business as usual. If not, I’ll be back on Monday!
Now my big concern is that my doctor is leaving the country for two weeks vacation two days after I get back, so even though I’ll get to see him on Tuesday, I’m a little concerned that he will be unavailable for the next two weeks. But hopefully, in a week, the toes will be fine.
Busy day tomorrow!! Gas up the SUV, oil change, carwash, clean the floors and bathrooms (we have friends house/dog sitting), get a haircut, give Mrs Serious a pedicure (??????) and pack! Plus about 16 other things that I haven’t thought of yet! Then up early Thursday and away we go!!!
I’ll try to be here tomorrow and do one last post and comments!! If not, have a GREAT rest of the week and weekend!!
I leave you with this:
This is a great way to re-evaluate our lives.
A group of alumni, all highly established in their respective careers, got together for a visit with their old university professor. The conversation soon turned to complaints about the endless stress of work and life.
Offering his guests coffee, the professor went into the kitchen and soon returned with a large pot of coffee and an eclectic assortment of cups: porcelain, plastic, glass, crystal – some plain, some expensive, some quite exquisite. Quietly he told them to help themselves to some fresh coffee…
When each of his former students had a cup of coffee in hand, the old professor quietly cleared his throat and began to patiently address the small gathering…
”You may have noticed that all of the nicer looking cups were taken up first, leaving behind the plainer and cheaper ones. While it is only natural for you to want only the best for yourselves that is actually the source of much of your stress-related problems… ”Be assured that the cup itself adds no quality to the coffee
In fact, the cup merely disguises or dresses up what we drink. What each of you really wanted was coffee, not a cup, but you instinctively went for the best cups… Then you began eyeing each other’s cups….”
”Now consider this: Life is coffee. Jobs, money, and position in society are merely cups. They are just tools to shape and contain Life, and the type of cup we have does not truly define nor change the quality of the Life we live…” ”Often, by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the coffee that God has provided us… God brews the coffee, but he does not supply the cups. Enjoy your coffee!”
The happiest people don’t have the best of everything, they just make the best of
everything…So please remember: Live simply. Love generously. Care Deeply. Speak Kindly.
Leave the Rest to God
