It's been at least 6 mths, and I'm having troublre navagating this new look. (it took me 15 mins to resign on! LOL). I can't find "IN A HEARTBEAT" so I'll start this one.
For those who still care, I cancelled my hip operation 5 mths ago, just after Christmas, (2017). After a year of waiting, I found those in charge hadn't even put me on the wait list yet!. Plus they expected me to take a long ferry ride and register in one of Vancouver's expensive hotels, (they're ALL expennsive in Vancouver), for at least 3 days while Vancouver General decided whether to take me or not. I couldn't stand the stress this was causing on top of the stress of worrying what would happen to my 95 yr old Mom while I was absent, (couldn't trust my older Bro to step up his game); so I cancelled. You know what? Tho I still have serious pain, fully 1/4 of it disappeared once I made the decision to cancel. I'm not kidding. So I'll try again next year or so, depending on how I feel. PS: Not the Shriners, the Military Vets (my Grandpa was one), or Ronald McDonald House was willing to help fund my stay in Vancouver. "We only do KIDS" was their answer. Apparently only kids count for help.
I've been spending my time painting up a storm, which has given me some solace. I'll post some at a later date. And I still write the column for the Assisted Living residence's Newsletter where I live. So that's what's been happening to me these last 6-8 mths. I'll try to come back more often.
