Giving my research student until 2:30 or so to get here. But I've typed my exam, done my hour of critter-searching in the soil, so I can kind of frivol until that time or until he gets here.
This is the first time in the past few days I've felt remotely physically normal. I was happier than I've been since the dx while working on the soil critters. I suppose it was a take-your-mind-off-it sort of thing.
(I mean, I do have a little dizziness on standing (aren't brunettes contractually forbidden from being "dizzy"?) but I don't feel like my heart is trying to claw its way out of my chest.)
I do have to go out and get a sympathy card sometime. The husband/father of a family we were friends with when I was growing up died over the weekend (sudden heart attack). I didn't have their address but my dad's former secretary (the first secretary I remember - and she and her family are friends of our family) sent the information on to me and it included the wife's address. (Having known them when they were younger, it weirds me out too much yet to call her the "widow.")
(And I miss being able to hang out with my dad's former secretary. She is a fun, fun person and is the kind of person that almost everyone loves.)
