It was a good week overall, filled with all of my new normal things - pulmonary rehab, paperwork, appointments. We were pretty much Olympic-watching junkies all week long. I enjoy most everything except for curling - check out this video to find a much better version of curling involving cats.
Is that your final answer?Monday was a bit of a sad day. It was the day that I told my bosses that I would not be coming back to work. It was extremely difficult, but I know that it is the right thing for me to do. Still some processing to do, but I took that first difficult step. I have given myself a working title of "Stay-at-home-fur-kid-mom."
I am also finding my way quite well with all of the disability stuff. I got some much needed free legal help with my long-term disability and am officially in the queue to get free legal help from another place to apply for SSDI. That is my next big project.

I am hoping that this round of IVs will only last for two weeks. Things are going really well - my lungs have improved quite a bit, my kidneys are handling the meds well and I think that I managed to not catch a cold that Todd caught mid-week. This coming week I see both my pulmonary doctor and my ear, nose and throat doctor to test my hearing and check in about sinus issues.
Other than that, I have been six weeks without alcohol and it has never been more difficult not to drink than when we were snowed in for two days! But I did it. I have actually been a little tempted since then, just wondering to myself why it is I'm doing this and what exactly I hope to get out of it. I'm not sure the answer, but something tells me I need to stick with it for now. And so I will.
