That lapis lazuli dome
and golden tray 
have turned time and again,
and will revolve yet more.
We, too, by the command of fate,
arrived and left again.

People, I’m going to let you in on a little secret. When you’re fat, fun milestones really aren’t that, well, fun. You don’t fully enjoy them. You compare yourself to what you were, when and you realize just how much you’ve changed. And not for the better. I met my husband thirteen years, and 100 [...]

I was called back fairly quickly, had my procedure explained and then they got right to it. It was nice to be early for a change. Of course, it didn’t help me get admitted any faster…
The central line in my neck was uncomfortable, but not painful. The worst part was the pinch and burn of the numbing drugs. 10 minutes later, I was told I could get dressed and go up to admitting. The nurse at that point had the sense of humor of a snail and was very serious about warning us not to leave the hospital and to never wander around aimlessly. Oy.
