Well... perhaps "lady" is a stretch. I prefer to think of myself as all woman, with a touch of tomboy thrown in for good measure.
But the waiting part is all too real.
Today I received a letter from my surgeon. I was anticipating getting my surgery date in the mail and hoped this would be it. He had told me at the office that there was a two month wait.
No, this was not it.
It was to inform me that there is actually a three month wait. Gaaahhhhhhhhh!
And that they would inform me of the actual surgery date 6 - 8 weeks prior.
He also was *ahem* kind enough to fill out the insurance form I had left behind at my last visit for my disability and rehab benefits that should kick in next month. For a stiff fee of $40. Hence using the term 'kind' loosely.
As I read over the form, I saw that he put an anticipated return to work 4 - 5 months post-op. Which means the surgery will likely be in August... and that puts me being gainfully employed once again at about the one year mark from when I injured my shoulder.
I shall go mad, I tell you, MAD with boredom long before then. Perhaps I shall take up crocheting (which I know how to do) or knitting (which I am useless at) or something that does not require much arm movement. I think I will also get a library membership and read every book known to man.
I've always wanted to be a lady of leisure... I would just prefer to actually be able to leise about without any restrictions to activity or bank account.
Harrumpf, I say.
