Meanwhile during my visit with friends our AC man was here doing our spring "ac check up". I know...be grateful something didn't happen on a Friday evening in LA heat to deal with all week end. Gosh though, I'd just about had D convinced we could afford to take up this carpet I hate in the living room and put some flooring down. Delay, gotta have the AC working. Don't have to have new flooring sadly. Unfortunately he found several things wrong so we fixed the worst. He came at 9am and left at exactly 12:45. My doctor appointment was at 1:15. Need a good 25 minutes to get there during lunch time. Paid the man then rushed out the door.
Appointment went well. My prayer was answered. Incision looked great, no sign of all of infection. He took that huge bandage. All that tape was probably aggravating my hives. He used some type of strips and said they need to stay on until the week end. If they don't come off on their own by Sunday I'm to take them off. This means I can take a shower now. Woo hoo. No tub, pool, sweating or anything strenuous. Asked me to come back in two weeks and I'd most likely be released of all those no no's. I'm going to do my best to continue to follow rules to make this happen. No setbacks!
|you can see how the tape was irritating my skin from the redness|

I made a stop on the way home and kicked my feet up to read a little while until my husband would be in. Yesterday I bought the new released copy of Dan Brown's Inferno. I'm only on chapter 10 but I wish I could just read it all the way through. I'd definitely be reading right now if not for typing this entry. This series is incredible. My husband came in around 45 minutes later and I met him at the back door and stepped into garage discussing our day. A tall nice looking man stopped by from "no where" I really didn't see him come up at all. Any how, he asked if he could show us a shampooing method that was 95% powder and 5% moisture and dries in 25 minutes. I told him we were looking to take our carpet up in the living room but hey if you understand that and it's free, go ahead. He called someone and in they appeared with this vacuum and a huge box of all kinds of gadgets.
|can be use like a mop on tile also|
|One very small spot for about 30 seconds. Used the dyson yesterday :-(|
|The mattress about 10 seconds in one spot|
I was so exhausted when they left. I have to say they were super nice people. I did be honest at one point and tell them that I think the vacuum would sell on its on if a customer was in need of one without 3 hours of demonstration. Seriously. I'm not sorry at all I gave up my night. This young girl and I had a very long talk as she had breaks changing parts and hoses at times. I really believe God wanted us to meet. This story I will share with you in another blog post. I really need to try and get some rest now.
My back side is pretty sore from the big padding they had back there protecting my IPG and incision. It really feels bare now. It's good and bad in the same way. Know what I mean? I have not had my reprogramming yet. My reps been hard at work and no time for me this week. Well, maybe Friday. He tired to get Lovely to come meet me at my appointment but even she was booked up also. They must be implanting these things a lot. He said definitely Friday or Monday. Really up to me. It can get crazy in town on Fridays so if my battery looks like I'll make it until Monday I may hold on until then.
When I started this is was Wednesday not Thursday.
