Monday Was Hurry Up And Wait!

I just found out I’m colorblind. The diagnosis came completely out of the purple!

I dropped like a rock last night and this morning the ol’ body awoke at 7:00 AM…Ouch! Time to meet Colleen at our favorite…Gourmet Pies! We met at 8:00 Am and enjoyed a super breakfast..harassed the waitress…laughed and giggled for a good hour!

Joe, Colleen and I share a sense of humor… We laugh at everything!

Colleen had a long day planned including a visit to Temecula and her grandparents gravesite to put flowers on it…she is a caring person. The grandparents were grand people who left us much too early! After looking at the dates, my folks could have easily been their folks as mine were both born about twenty years earlier.

We talked a lot about the grandparents… Colleen has a great memory of Sunday morning escapes to Santa Monica and stops by USC on the way home (so does Joe)

I spent the day in and out of the hospital trying to get Sue hijacked but alas, it took from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM to get all the doctors to “sign-off” for a release.

Diagnosis: Acute UTI; Toxic metabolic encephalopathy. Acute toxicmetabolic encephalopathy (TME) is a condition of acute global cerebral dysfunction manifested by altered consciousness, behavior changes, and/or seizures in the absence of primary structural brain disease or direct central nervous system (CNS) infection.

We went to California Pizza Kitchen at 6:15 PM with Colleen and grandson Connor after she escaped… time for a wine and a lot of fun sharing. We laughed and giggled until almost 9:00 PM at which time we had to high tail it to CVS to pick up some prescriptions. Sue was back to normal cracking hair jokes, at my expense, and laughing at all the old stories!

Great fun with family… Colleen, Connor, and me have similar senses of humor… Poor Sue!

We have not seen a lot of Connor recently as he had a new job so we agreed to figure out a way to see each other twice a month minimum! We will go to dinner or a show or something on a regular basis!

Connor headed home and Colleen and us watched TV until about 11:40 PM. We all laughed at the Gilmore Girls. Sue was feeling pretty good as we crashed for the day!

About Paul

Just an old retired guy trying to finish out my last years on this planet. I lost my best friend and wife in early 2020. I was blessed again by reconnecting with Dr. Mary Côté, a long-time friend. Mary and I got married July 28th, 2021, and are enjoying life together and plan to spend the rest of our lives being a blessing to our friends and family.
