Doom and Gloom

I just hate all of this 'doom and gloom' and 'lets blame America first' attitude that seems to mostly come from the political left leaners. Yes, the economy is slow right now, but this is normal. The economy goes in ebbs and flows. The war in Iraq is going, overall, well. The surge works. The sky is NOT falling, not anywhere even close. Buildings not on fire do not make the news. Sometimes I get the idea that some people read in their newspaper that a couple of buildings burn down , they assume that most buildings in that city are burning or have burnt down. I just don't get it.

Hello. Today is Thursday, July twenty-something. I forget the date. Yes, my legs are still getting wrapped because of the edema. So far, everything is going as expected. I am supposed to get my permanent edema garmets(they are called Circaids) either tomorrow or Monday. They will be delivered to the hospital, and I will go there and be fitted for them. They are not the sexiest things to wear, but at least I can now go back to showering twice a day at home after I get them! Hope they arrive tomorrow::knock on wood::

And so sorry it has taken me a long time to update this blog. Yes, my legs are both wrapped. It does not hurt, hell pressing on the edema hurt more, and I will have to wear these wraps for the next couple of weeks. I started on Monday, and the wraps are at least comfy. The therapist doing the wraps is excellent. Very patient with me. Only thing I really don't like is not being able to shower when I get home. Can't take the wraps off overnight cause then my legs swell back up. I go to work, then I have to leave for the therapist at just after 10 am.. get there to the office, then when I get to her office, unwrap, take a shower, get dressed and then she wraps me with my clean bandages. I will have to do this next week too. On weekends, even thought I work, I will have to sponge bath. Yuck! And in about 3 weeks I will have to go repeat a sonogram. Fun.
