Insurance managed to anticipate a foot specialist that could only see me in December to see me next Wednesday. I can't even begin to describe the relief since I've been enduring a year of tendon pains without proper diagnosis other than 'yep, they are loose and you'll need surgery on your ankle for sure'. Very eager for treatment since I can't live without going to the gym and, these days, even hidroaerobics is painful as hell.
Oh my god, Mynerva- I'm so sorry! That is awful. I lost my father to something lung related 2 years ago, and still miss him every day, though it does get easier to handle as time goes on. My deepest sympathies to you and your family.

There is something magical in watching ones child fall asleep. That made me happy last night. Often i find happiness is tiny flashes of joy in the probably seemingly insignificant events of everyday life. Right now the morning sun streaming through an old oak creating dancing lights on my wall after two days of pure grey does it for me.
