upson downs

in which our plucky heroine is certain that she is not a show pony, and is getting really tired of jumping through hoops and having the bar raised each time... I'll be good, can I please have my equanimity back now?

Handfix™ has been going really well, all signs seem positive so far for a smooth recovery.

Well that was dumb - would've been smart to make certain of Proper First Aid Supplies ahead of time. Bad Resiliency Ranger! Do have plenty of bandaids (and a modicum of the other b's) but somehow neglected to have gauze or papertape on hand. Will not make that error again.

Fortunately sister is Very Helpful, and ran to the late night drugstore for suitable supplies;

The scarey doctor appt did generate some small amount of useful information, but the primary testing intended for that office visit proved painfully impossible to carry out.

Even a post doctor-visit lunch at the Chapel Pub failed to regenerate my equanimity; am home again, headed for another shower and maybe a nap...
