Five weeks ago today

I went under the knife…as they say.  Still kicking along out here in the desert, body rest and repair going on, can’t wait to finish painting the exterior of my house but I will wait at least one more week for the 6 week mark after surgery.  And also try to dodge some frisky weather we may be having.

Bloggers gathering in Vegas

I so planned to make it into Vegas this weekend for the blogger gathering – and to play the tournament held at Aria today.  It simply wasn’t going to happen after the last 4 weeks of regrouping after the surgery.  If they had a hammock in a quiet, dark corner for grannies that need a rest, I would have gone…hee hee.  Continue reading

Not much news going on

It’s a Thursday.  Back in the day I would’ve celebrated (just like I did every day) with a few water glasses full of wine.  Funny how time changes things.  Now I can barely stand the thought of a glass of wine.  Upon occasion when my sis comes over with full wine glass in hand, I think I should be drinking one with her.  Sometimes I do, but not very often.  No desire.

Three weeks out

Let’s get the bad news out of the way.  I’m a little over three weeks out from having surgery and the ‘massive hematoma’ is still a massive irritant in my life.  It’s still draining, bright, red blood.  She-ite!  I had an appointment last week with my surgeon.  He’s convinced that my body will heal itself.  I am convincing myself of the same thing because I couldn’t stand to go in and have another surgery right now…at least not for a year or so.  FK!

Them that has the gold makes the rules

That’s an old saying in poker but it rings true to most events that happen in our daily lives.  Let’s talk the medical marijuana revolution that’s going on in Nevada as the rules are changing and grow/dispensaries are going to become legal for in state and out of state buyers that have a medical marijuana card.

Happy Thanksgiving

Wishing everyone a day filled with great company and the sharing of food and laughter.  I didn’t kill a turkey but I am going to take a big bite of one later today at my sis’s place.  The food will be superb and those that come to join in are all friendly.  May the same be at your table today.

Cold here in the desert

I’m headed to Las Vegas in the next few hours to do a follow-up with my surgeon after going back to the hospital for a coupla days.  That may not make sense.  I was actually scheduled for a 3-month checkup after having my pal Foley removed almost two weeks ago. But when I checked into ER and an abdominal hematoma was discovered, I spent 2 days in the hospital undergoing more tests, blah, blah, blah. This follow-up is a follow-up to that. Continue reading

Looking over the poker world

After being almost completely out of the loop for some time (close to 3 weeks), I started reading some catch-up news. Frankly, there are two things that really caught my eye or — boggle my mind. Continue reading

Misery

I started this a number of days ago.  I came back 4 times.  I’m not having a very good time still but want to finish this post so I can get on to the next step in life.

Bagged and Tagged

It’s been a crazy time this last few weeks.  I feel like all I’ve done is follow up on Dr. tasks and things that should have been easy but have been extremely frustrating instead.  It takes a bunch of tasks to come together to make everything slide into home.  Finally, after breaking down at one point and crying my eyes out at the Pahrump hospital where I was trying to get approval for an EKG, and more frustration coupled with more frustration, it’s all set…I hope.
