Catch 22

Hello everyone,

Well, I am at these lovely UNMC Suites, it's 1:45am and I can't sleep. So thought I would do a quick update. It's been a productive two weeks. I've watched several movies I've never seen before, which is always nice instead of vegging out in crap you've seen a b-jillion times. This includes the movie Jaws. (Yes, I said Jaws.) Funny thing, the one single moment that sticks out the most in my mind is when the three men are on the ship, telling stories, drinking and singing songs; and the lead, Roy Scheider, goes to sit down at the table and hits his head on the hanging light above the table. It was obvious it is one of those moments, as you watch him react to it, that wasn't supposed to happen, but they kept it in the film anyway. Love those kinds of things! Movies now-a-days are so "perfect", so sterile (or at least, intended to be.) Anyway, loved that moment!

I also finished reading the Twilight series. Kudos to my friend Rachel who told me I should read it! (Kasey, if you are reading this, yes, Rachel is right - read the series!)

Of course, I have done my fair share of research on my next theatre project, and prep work. As well as keeping up on work emails. And on to reading other material, including the play Ghosts; and thank you Kevin for bringing the book you brought up!!!!..... I've had visits from several friends, which of course is a great gem in this joint; and the next best thing....had a The Tudors marathon. Watched the whole first season.  I think anyone who doesn't like this series is crazy!!!

Ok, so what about my health. Is that what you all wanna know? Ok...

Well, one thing I can tell you is that I have gained nine pounds since I have been in here. I am up to 117 pounds. I will weigh again tomorrow; and if I weigh 118, then it will be a personal lifetime high.   :)

I'll find out tomorrow (or today, since it is the wee hours of the AM) as to whether I can go home or not. It depends on my breathing tests. Here's the deal...if my breathing tests have leveled off, then I get to go home; the meds have done what they are supposed to do. But if my tests are better, then I have to stay in because that means there is still improvement in the lungs for the meds to take care of. As long as there is room for improvement, you stay in these glamorous rooms 'til the next time we test - which would be Thursday. SO ... catch 22....do I want the tests to be better? Or do I want to go home?

What would you want?
