Recovery

I haven't posted in a while because I had to go in on Tuesday to have two wisdom teeth removed. I got dry socket in the bottom one, and had to go AGAIN to the surgeon to get more painkillers and get it packed. The clove oil/antibiotic pad they shoved in there tastes NASTY, all the food and drinks I consume are tainted with the flavor of yuck. Enough whining.

I somehow managed to pull off a B in my history class, which is good, but I have such high expectations of myself and it was disappointing. I am confident I will get an A in psychology, I have such a passion for learning in that class so it's easy to pull off good grades. Having a rockin' professor doesn't hurt either!

Life is good. Dole comes home in 12 days, so I am busy getting ready for his return! I went and got him some goodies for him, and ditched all his old socks, white T's, boxers, etc and replenished them with fresh ones. I got him this awesome pair of Oakley's too, but he picked them out so it's not much of a surprise. I never know if he reads this or not, so I will keep everything else a surprise.

Mother's day is soon approaching, and he wanted some money to get me stuff. That's all fine and dandy, but I told him to wait until he comes home to spoil me, since I would rather have him here to see my reaction. It's not as special without him here, and we have gone through so many holidays without him for the past 15 months, so it is time to save one to enjoy with him this time.

My mom's health is worrying me, she has a couple issues that are very concerning. She is having problems dealing with being perimenopausal, stomach issues that have yet to be resolved, and now a growth in her right hand that needs to be removed. Being that she is an artist and a teacher...and right-handed, it is going to be a difficult recovery for her. If you know anything at all about my mother, you know she doesn't miss a beat. She just hasn't been herself, and I am very concerned.

My grandfather has been having issues with the heat, and had a form of heat exhaustion combined with an infection. He seemed to be doing better when I talked to them this morning, but I am still scared since he is going to be 81 this fall. My grandmother is STILL recovering from her knee replacement back in November, and it has been a long hard road for her. The thing that bothers me most is that I am 1,000 miles away from my family, and it is crushing me that I can't help them. Not that there is much that I can do with the two kids, but to at least SEE them would comfort me some.

I have to just give it to God, he has a plan for all of us, and whatever that may be I have to come to terms with it. Worrying doesn't solve anything, but prayer helps!
