The abdominal binder was the only thing that let me sleep while I was healing.

Glad you are getting some sleep!

OUCH! I can't empathize, haven't broken my shoulder, but I did have a 1st rib resection and that was horribly painful (even with meds) and involved a lot of PT. Take good care of her, Andy. And, remember being in pain can make a person testy. SO doesn't mean to get testy, but being in pain does that.

Just got back from a stress test. Heart's fine. Dr. thinks I should exercise and lose weight.

I'm cleaning out the utility closet. Good lord, the stuff I found in there. Managed to reduce the rag collection by 2/3, found a bunch of insulated lunch bags we've never used, and will be donating those, along with garden shoes and pot holders I haven't used for years to Goodwill. Reorganized the dusters and other cleaning stuff which hopefully the cleaning lady will put back instead of hiding them all over the house.

Next up is to call DirecTV as the receiver in the family room quit working. I did all the troubleshooting, nada. Not looking forward to sitting on hold for an eternity. I think the thing is shot.

That's good news to hear Andy!
That's what you get for being such a good cook. I bet some variation on that could be told to at least half of us hanging around DC by our own doctors. Cooking and eating are so much fun.

I'm stalling on calling the Health Connector...again. I tried making sure the check cashed in December has finally been applied to my March premium, but it seems like my account on the website has me still waiting on locking a plan. *sigh* Considering I have a card and plan information from my insurance provider ONE of my accounts must be valid! Over the weekend the news said the state had to delete something like 20,000 duplicate accounts. Gack, I hope they killed the right one for me.

I'm whooped so I'm sitting here waiting on a last minute load to finish in the dryer. Packing for a month away from home seems close to moving. I woke up in the middle of the night wondering what became of the pineapple I bought last week. Good thing I found it in the trunk this morning as it sure would have stunk up the car after a month in our warm climate. I keep thinking there's something else I've forgotten. I have to be sure to pack my pillow in the morning..never leave home without it. We will be picked up for the airport tomorrow evening flying 14 hrs to Buenos Aires with a layover in Lima. Buzzer went off on the dryer. I'll be back before tomorrow evening.

I am online shopping.
I think what I like most about online shopping is it is so easy to research.
Unfortunately, it is so easy to hit Submit Order, too.
