And KoKo stayed home with Froggy. He is very good when I leave him alone. He barks at people who walk by (not very many) and especially at dogs. But mostly I think he sleeps, with Froggy of course. This morning we walked before 7am before I had to leave at 7:30am.

Had the epidural today 06-08-23
My friend Dick drove me down to Irvine to the Hoag Surgical Center for Dr. Le to do his magic (I hope) again. The last epidural was in October and the pain did not get bad again until May. I hope this one lasts as well. Who knows why some do better than others. It is always an ordeal to sign in with dozens of papers explaining whatever horrible things might happen, both medically and financially. I was surprised that nobody was wearing masks, so I didn't either. Check in time was 8:15am, procedure scheduled for 9am, but happened about 9:45am. All that laying on a gurney with no book, no phone, no idea when the procedure will start. It is a drag. They didn't put me out, just some relaxing drugs and, for the first time, oxygen. Don't know why. My age? Then it was over in about 15 minutes and they hustled me out of there. When I was home again I ate a small turkey sandwich and took my morning pills and drank an entire bottle of water. Reclined with KoKo in my lap and slept for four and a half hours. We did a short walk this evening so KoKo could do his business.
No luck finding my calendar book. I think it is gone forever. I have a wall calendar from AARP and am filling in those little squares as I call to see what appointments I have scheduled. And Book Groups (2) and Surfside QGuild. I know there are some ZOOM meetings, but don't know how to figure out when they are. A friend has almost convinced me that I need to do a calendar on my phone. She says that if I lose my phone I can still find my calendar in backup. Thinking about it.
Probably more than you wanted to know, but sometimes I just need to "talk" to someone about things in my life. Love.
