I never said 'thrillers', did I? No, I don't think so. I have listened to a lot of Science fiction, some fantasy, some Aussie literary fiction, poetry, At the moment I have Greg Bear, 'City at the End of Time', I found on YouTube, in two parts because the entire book would run to nearly 22hours.
Yesterday, they removed the drain on the left as well, but really didn't adequately bandage that wound so it was leaking all afternoon & into the evening. The dressing they put on it was saturated quite quickly. Eventually, I tried replacing it, with the dressing they supplied, but that didn't go well. I found some larger band aids of my own, & put a couple of those on, & they are sticking better, & the leaking finally slowed when I was resting.
My groceries weren't delivered until 7:45, & I suppose the fellow noticed the side f my shirt was wet, & offered to bring my groceries inside. Being an 'unattended' delivery, they are supposed to leave things outside the door, & not expect a signature. I've been doing that because I can't wear a mask, even for that short a time. But last night, leaking as I was already, I very gratefully allowed him to bring the groceries in. I'm not sure how I was going to manage & not make matters worse for me trying to bring everything in & lifting items, even one at a time, onto counter & table. I still had to put fridge & freezer stuff away, anyway. I felt done by the time I did that much.
That's when I went for a rest, & snooze, for a couple hours, even though it was about 8:15pm by then, & I hadn't eaten my dinner yet.
My digestive system has been playing up for a couple days, which makes my back hurt as well. Lying down a lot does make my back feel better, but does not help the digestive system get its act together. Took a laxative yesterday afternoon, & hoping I won't need to take another, but still waiting!
I've made appointments to see the GP tomorrow & the Audiologist after, but other than doing some tests, I'm not sure what they can do. It is only reassuring if I can have some physical evidence of what my hearing is doing lately.
I am glad of a quieter day. I'll call my PDr later, & for now, I will have too accept a slightly shorter session length to use the Medicare telehealth without video, item provided. It's too hot & humid to even think of getting fully dressed, if I was doing video calls, let alone going out!
I know I've got to do it tomorrow...oh woe! It's so uncomfortable.
