elayna: (Die Hard John-Matt)

Seems like strange times lately, though probably not that strange really.

Second opinions are a beautiful thing. A friend was losing sensation to her legs. Went to her doctor, who said some weirdness about her body needing 'reconditioning' and sent her to a physical therapist. The therapy exercises helped but she wasn't regaining sensation and other problems were happening. Her doctor is taking an extended leave, so she saw another doctor. Within 25 hours, she was having surgery on her neck because a disc had gone wrong in some way and was restricting the flow of blood down her spine. Now she has pins and a cadaver bone in her neck, and recovery is being slow, but still... second opinions are a beautiful thing.

Especially when your doctor, as best as I can tell, subscribes to the theory that overweight people only need to lose weight and all other health problems will disappear.

Anyway, that friend, my sister, and I were supposed to do a PaintNite on what ended up being the afternoon of her surgery, so I texted my brother and he filled in. That's the first time I remember my siblings and I ever doing anything creative together. My sister and I, lots of times, especially as kids and even as adults, but brother was always off 'doing boy things.' He seemed to enjoy painting a cat in a garden.

The PaintNite was at a bar, which had MMA on its TV screens. One of the fighters had his legs wrapped around the other guy's waist and seemed to be hugging him. Why didn't Steve McGarrett use that maneuver? 'Cuz... guh.

I saw Wonder Woman last Sunday and enjoyed it quite a lot. So fabulous to have a great female superhero movie. There isn't a tag scene at the end.

Tuesday was the second anniversary of Mom's death. I took it off, not ready to spend the day pretending all was fine to my co-workers. I finished reading the Atlantis book, which was decent, but... it doesn't seem enough story for six books. Too much time spent on minor characters who don't interest me or particularly advance the plot.

I watched Live Free or Die Hard in the afternoon. I love that movie. Made me want to revisit John/Matt.

I feel more relaxed now that the stroke-stroke-pneumonia anniversaries are done. It's not easy to accept that Mom is gone, but those sudden flashes of 'two years ago this horrible thing happened' made everything worst.

Petite Tabby and New Cat are sitting at my feet as I type. New Cat is still sleeping outside some nights, but the sudden downturn in temperature seems to be keeping him in tonight. Poor Tabby does not realize she's get her vet check-up tomorrow. There will be anguished meowing.
