My friend Mady used to say, "If today were a fish, I'd throw it back." I could have said that about this week.
On Monday, I had my annual mammogram, and there was a change from a year ago. It just needs close watching for now, but I didn't get my usual "I've dodged a bullet again" feeling.
On Wednesday, I had a chest X-ray for a persistent cough. It looked OK. While I was there, my doctor gave me a flu shot, and removed some wax in my ear. He had to work so hard on my ear that it became inflamed so he gave me a prescription for antibiotic ear drops. Then while I was in a meeting late Thursday afternoon, I began to feel awful. And on Friday, I gave in and came home early with the flu, perhaps a reaction to my flu shot.
But something happened to save this fish of a week. Yesterday there was a wonderful comment on the 70-something blog from almost 30-year old "Kate from Singapore".
Thanks Kate. You saved my week.
