How's it goin'? Well, @ my sister Celia's suggestion, she and her son Mark took my Mark and I to dinner this evening! We went to a sushi place downtown - and since our nephew Mark had worked in a sushi restaurant as a sushi chef - we let him order our dinner! Imagine my surprise when I looked down @ the menu and saw SABA (Mackerel)! Yikes! What? Here I thought my little Saba had this exotic name and come to find it means Mackerel?! Dang! Oh well - I still love her name - I think it suits her! She's just too darned cute and she has an aura about her that makes her popular! Actually, Saba is also the smallest island of the Netherlands Antilles! Wow! Who knew? I'll have to ask "the real Saba" about it next time I see her in CO! She's a doll! I haven't seen her the last 2 procedures I've had @ Swedish - she's either been off or just not working on the floor I've been on! Dr. Yakes patients are either on 6th or 9th floor. FYI - Saba has "won" the distinction of being Employee of the Year @ Swedish - apparently I'm not the only one that thinks she's a doll - isn't she beautiful?!
I'll have to wind this up soon, I took some meds that are making me drowsy! The doctor in CO is trying a new med on me - Neurontin and that knocks me out! Right now I'm staggering 4 of those daily and getting some much needed rest!
Hopefully everyone enjoys this nice long weekend! My sister Celia has generously been sharing some books with me - the Stephenie Meyer series, so we're enjoying those, as both of us are avid readers! I'm half way through the second one (New Moon) and she brought over the third one in the series this evening (Eclipse)!
Celia also brought me a couple pair of sandals that no longer fit her - and they're just right for me! Not to leave my Mark out of the loop - she brought over some baking pans that her mother-in-law no longer used! We love these fun goodies!
Celia and Markie stayed over for a bit and played Farkle and got a kick out of our furry kids, Dulce, Midori and Giovanni! They have such unique personalities and are definitely a handful! Midori tends to be on the "heavy" side, and Markie accurately described her as an "ottoman"! That's hilarious! Poor Midori! Dulce was all over Celia, and Giovanni tends to hover around everyones feet! That and/or is snuggling up to my Marks neck/chin! It's a shame that Greg and Davis couldn't join us this time!
Right now my avm is in a passive mode and I've got my pain under control, so I am a happy camper! Thanks to everyone for their prayers as I am doing well right now! I am grateful to be feeling well enough to have a great evening with my family without having any avm incidents!
Much love to all! Keep checking back for updates on my avm world!
