STAT meant stat, and I had my CAT scan yesterday. They were not done with me until after 5:00 pm, so I don't expect to hear from a doctor until Monday after the holiday. I'd like to think this pain is just a part of a long healing process - - - but I don't really think that's true.
But, the good news is I am going to have the quiet Christmas I dreamed of a couple of weeks ago. I'm not exactly healthy, but managed my Christmas shopping - thanks to Amazon Prime. Everybody gets something from me, and the gifts are wrapped too! While I can't stand up long enough to cook an elaborate meal, we can get a Honeybaked ham and side dishes. Mostly, I will be able to see my children and my husband and have a nice time with them. We'll open gifts, than play board games, listen to Christmas music and maybe drink hot cider and eat Christmas cookies. What could be better?!
People have also been very good to me this year, and I have more thanks to give out than I can possibly manage.
May you and yours have a very Merry Christmas - STAT!
