Here's a photo of another local flower, known as the passion flower…
It's a little hard to capture the purple, the sun has been so strong lately here it sort of washes everything out.
Thats my photographic effort for the last week,…
In other news….
Eating is going along pretty well. I am experimenting with a variety of foods. I discovered I really like tofu plain. Its the perfect food when one doesn't feel like eating. Just slides right down… Some other foods are not quite as pleasing, but I have managed to eat on the template with the extras every day this week. So the Nutritionist should be happy this week.
Work has been nuts. Busy busy busy with some difficult tragic patients. A little kid who took Mom's medicines. Usually this is just drink up the charcoal and discuss with parent why this occurred. But some medicines can really be fatal, and this kid took the stuff that could kill. A young person who had a sudden cardiac arrest for no apparent reason. A few unusual traumas… and the typical stuff. We have been short staffed as is often the case, so I have really been earning my money and using my skills.
Running is coming along well. I had a lot of pain in my left shin last week, I was getting worried that I had a new stress fracture. I took 2 days off and it seems to be much better. Run today was a little faster and much more fun. I am still getting killed on "My worst enemy" (the hill) but the other hills are good. Strength training is also going along well. I was unable to swim for a few days and found I really missed it too. I went today but only for 20 minutes.
I'm going to register soon for the NM half.
Tomorro, I have to meet with the Doctor AGAIN. I would think he'd have long ago gotten tired of me, but no….
I hope it won't be as difficult as next week, but this time I am prepared.
