A long overdue update

To take you, dear readers, on the roller coaster of emotions that I’ve been on lately would be unfair. But to be any less honest seems equally unfair, so here it is:

Medical stuff:
No answers yet, which is sufficiently irritating. Unfortunately, things like this can’t be rushed. Monday I went to the specialist that my amazing doctor recommended…. And it was a complete waste of time. After spending over 30 minutes waiting, I spent my remainder 10-15 minutes with the doctor convincing him to help me. Which resulted in him ordering more imaging and believing surgery to be unnecessary at this point. Um… okay… than why would my other (who’s known me for years, understands my conditions, and who has earned my trust) MD recommend me to you FOR SURGERY?
So I’m heading to yet another specialist in 2 weeks for a tie breaker opinion.  All of this reminds me that they are only “practicing medicine”. They haven’t gotten it nailed down quite yet. I won’t lie. The waiting isn’t easy. But there is nothing I can do but keep myself distracted and just live my life.

Hobbies and stuff:
Rasputin hadn’t even been closed for a full 7 days by the time I got to Tempe and competed in the 2010 SheRox triathlon. The heat and dehydration got the best of me through most of the race, but I’m so glad I did it. I got to share in Sistah’Girl’s first triathlon ever. And it lit a flame. She may be known as TriGirl someday, but for now, I like Sistah’Girl. It still fits. (BTW – she beat me by a minute! Way to go Sistah’ Girl!)
Sistah’Girl and I started a new blog. Check us out. We update a LOT more often than I update this one. I’ve been really tired lately and have really had to figure out where to focus my energy.

Work Stuff:
This month I’ll be transitioning to work from home! Yeah! I can’t wait.

Roommate stuff:
Still just a few nibbles on this front, but I’m still hopeful!

More later, but that’s it for now!
