Off to hospital yesterday for repeat brain scan which my PCP, Divine Patrick L does not think is necessary, but which our friend, equally Divine, Ivan C, who was head of neurosurgery at Evanston Hospital for years until he retired did ,just as a precaution.This was to check for a possible subdural hematoma after my fall Monday which cracked, broke, three front teeth and has left my chin looking like a large eggplant. PCP called at 8am this morning. Follow up brain scan yesterday was fine as he knew it would be.Said all systems go, but not to try the triathalon. I'm still ultra bruised,( though Arnica Gel is helping) but really the fix for teeth is just cosmetic, not surgery for what could have been a brain bleed. Utterly grateful for that and for my Apple 6 watch.
It’s strange, Sandi. All I basically eat are carbs and, especially, now on soft foods for a while. Oatmeal, oatmeal, oatmeal, oyster crackers softened in milk. I’ve always been a big bread and any kind of crust eater, and being vegetarian, it’s basically carbs. I have gone from 128lbs to 138 in the last year, but at 5’8” it’s okay, though, MO, says not to gain because of estrogen increase. And, maybe some weight is the Arimidex, not just tons of pita bread and matzoh.
I’ve been wearing Hanes loose black exercise pants for the past year- they feel like pajama bottoms. For dress, like where these days do I dress?, Gap 1969 boot cut, size 10-12. I look at the clothes in my closet, jackets, blouses, good black pants, and think, “ when, oh when, will I ever wear you again?,” but, actua, it’s not as if I care. So much drops away that was important when I was younger. Now just to be alive( and , hopefully, have fixed teeth) matters.
