My birthday was Wednesday, but I’m going to celebrate it another day.Â I’m not sure what day it will be, butÂ it will be better thanÂ Wednesday was.Â I will not spendÂ theÂ greater part of the afternoon and the eveningÂ in the doctor’s office and the emergency room.Â I will not have fast foodÂ for dinner.
It wasn’t all doom and gloom, though it felt like it at moments.Â I got to spend some time with my friend Laurie who made me laugh a lot in the ER.Â I got to meet some of the people in my small group.Â I opened up a good number of cards from people I wish were not so far away.Â I talked to most of my family.
I don’t want to do the whole thing over . . . just a few parts.
