Recovering and Our Magical Gnome

First I’m feeling pretty darn good today.  I’m not dizzy!  That is saying A LOT!  I have a ton of energy, unfortunately I can’t do anything with it.  I keep trying to do things and I go Ouch, Ouch, Ouch.  It’s not bad, but dang it all my back feels like someone beat it up.  And I guess they did.  : )   However, I’m not as sore as I was last night, so I’m healing fast.

No headaches.  That’s a good sign.  That means my pressure isn’t spiking.

The only thing I’m not happy about is that my hearing isn’t all that I want it to be.  (Yeah, I know, I expect miracles.)  I don’t expect my right ear to clear up, but the tinnitus in my right ear is being pretty relentless.  And my left ear isn’t as clear as it was yesterday.  It’s just a little dull.  I can hear OK.  But if I put my fingers up to my ear and rub them together I don’t hear that rustling noise.  I think my pressure is just leveling out.  It may be just a smidgen too high right now.  We’ll see.

But mostly, I’m doing great!

Now for Story number 2. Our Magical Gnome.


Mr. Gnome

We have a little Gnome that sits in the little garden section in front of our house.  Right now it’s just mulch, but during the Spring, Summer, and Fall it’s covered in herbs and flowers and such.  Mr. Gnome sits out there and watches over our little garden and takes care of things.  (like Gnomes are supposed to do.)

The strange thing about this Gnome is that he keeps moving.  I put him in one place, and I’ll go out and he’s in a different place in our little patch.  I’ve asked Stuart if he moved him, and he denies it.  He also looks at me like I’m a little crazy.  This latest time, we had a storm last week and Mr. Gnome was blown over.  I haven’t been feeling well enough to bend over and pick him up without getting dizzy.  Today, I went out side and there he is standing right in the middle of the little garden patch looking out over the yard, guarding us against … oh, you know the things that gnomes guard against.

(I’m thinking the little boy next door, who I just love to pieces, has been watching out over Mr. Gnome.  But I could be wrong.  It could be that I really do have a Magical Gnome and Mr. Gnome is watching out over all of us.)

Maybe I’ll have to take him in to see the upcoming movie Gnomeo and Juliet.  He’s such a good little gnome and everyone deserves a break every once in a while.  (but who knows what he’s really doing out there when I’m not looking…hummm.)

To answer your question, No, this is not the pain killers talking.  I’ve only taken one today.  I just think gnomes are kinda funny.  (maybe I haven ‘t taken enough pain killers??)

  1. It’s good to see you’re doing better. I hope the procedure does bring miracles for you.

    One of the things I hate is feeling better and having the energy but not being in a position to go and do stuff. (It’s been pointed out to me, on more than one occasion, that I sometimes lack patience. But, only sometimes.) So, just take it easy right now. I’m a big fan of the more you let your body heal at the start, the quicker you can, hopefully, get going again. The body can be wonderful, that way.

    As for the movie, who doesn’t love gnomes. And there’s pink flamingos in the movie, too! I know those movies are made for kids, but I enjoy them too and the people making them are remembering that adults are also watching them. Sometimes it’s OK not to act grown up. Actually, I think it should be mandatory.

    I’m sure you’re being pampered right now so enjoy it and take care of yourself.
