Sometimes I wonder what it would be like to have a pet.  Other times I have absolutely 0 confidence in myself and am afraid that I would make a pet’s life miserable.

But what if I would take my dog out for a walk (along with my cane or walker),  even around the block, whereas I never would have before?  I don’t know what it is, I just have seemed super sensitive to the idea of having a pet for the past few days – so strange – for me.  I guess either way, I could not/ should not make such a huge decision on the heels of IVSM treatments.  I don’t know if my mind is back as yet!  I’m in the OUCH phase of post IVSM right now.  Maybe I am beyond emotional.

Ive had about a combined 5 hours of sleep in 2 nights. I don’t blame me.

2 more days to go.  I’m very grateful as the last time I was here, My medical team was enjoying a civil war.

Jesus and my awesome doctor took care of it.

It’s not always easy, but the hope and anticipation of feeling better bridges many feelings.
