Recharging this Saturday Afternoon

Saturday afternoon update: more tests have been ordered and run, and results are coming in. Thankfully some seriously bad possible causes have been ruled out. We still don’t know exactly what is going on, but it looks like I will probably be here in hospital until Monday.

My phone battery ran very low, and the doc who came in to see me today checked the nursing station and found a charger that works for my phone. So kind!

My awesome kids packed up a bag of things. I gave them a list, and double-checked the most important things, including my phone charger. My friend is on her way here now to deliver them. I’m very grateful. I didn’t plan to spend the weekend in hospital, so I didn’t bring anything, not even a winter coat. Because of COVID, I never go anywhere these days except to walk the dog (key in pocket) or to medical appointments. These days my purse isn’t well stocked with basic things that it would normally carry (in case they are needed). When we pause to think about it, there are few things that we really need: our meds (if we take any), toothbrush and paste, a phone charger, maybe some fresh clothes. I’m grateful that those things, and quite a few bonus extras, are on their way here for me now.

Very grateful for the support teams that surround us, near and far, sending love, kind thoughts, messages and prayers. And for those times when we find ourselves without the basics, like a phone charger, much gratitude for the strangers who go above and beyond to show empathy and care.
