Monkey Business

Feb 23, 2013 - 2 comments


























So I'm about to complain hardcore in this paragraph...feel free to skip to the next one if you'd like lol.
My body aches, my head is pounding, and it's been difficult to get my eyes to focus properly. My hands and feet are pretty much just on fire. I've been really sleepy, but for some reason...I can't really sleep very well. I can sleep, but it's restless sleep, if that makes any sense. My stomach is hurting really badly, but not in the area where I had surgery. It's hurting on the spleen side. That kinda makes me nervous cuz they said to look out for signs of splenomegaly and stuff, so I'm hoping it's just on that side, but nothing like...spleen related. My shoulder kinda hurts when I breathe, but if I take really small breaths, it doesn't hurt so badly. Ok, I'll stop for now X_X

Soo...I decided to try to be more productive and watch videos that explain some stuff for school...maybe passively learn some of the material. I mean it's like watching a movie, right? But to cover more material, I played it on double speed, which was funny to listen to. It made me laugh just to listen to his voice that fast and watch how fast he was writing on the board. I don't know why I found it so funny, but it was funny for like an hour! He also compared connective tissue cells to monkeys and the extracellular matrix to a jungle and kept that metaphor going for a while. That helped make it even funnier. He kept calling it "monkey business." So that worked ok for the first hour, but after that...I just couldn't make myself care enough to pay attention. Oh well, at least I got a good laugh out of it.

I had a lollipop! It tasted weird and kinda made me drool (shh, don't tell people that)...but it was really pretty! Before I ate it.

You are such an inspiration with everything you are going through. What are you studying?

I finished my degree in September in childhood and youth studies I studied with the Open University as I usually work full time also. The last module was a real labour of love I went on holiday with my work and did my last research proposal getting up at 1.30am to write post it notes it was nuts:-)

How are you feeling today? How is your dad?
Take good care of yourself Trace:-)

Thank you! I'm in medical school, and the last thing we studied was endocrine/reproductive. Now I'm reviewing histology. Wow, that sounds pretty intense.

Today isn't much better than last night. Awful headache and nausea and dad is doing pretty well. Thanks, you take care, too.
