Summer rain. Your arrival normally so welcomed. You wash clean the air and roads. You water our soil, feed our crops and flowers. You herald drier and cooler weather. You leave us with anions to make us happy, and rainbows to remind us of the Lord’s promise.
Your arrival this past day, however, was not […]

I’ve been bummed since hearing the news this morning. A work-friend’s new baby is very sick. Please help me pray for his optimal recovery.

The migraines

Sunday, August 28th, 2005

The migraines are not good.
Oh, and isn’t the bichon frisť the cutest little dog in the world???

IMO that’s the best dog for me. It’s cute and little, it’s loving and friendly, it’s good for downtown living, and it’s hypoallergenic (doesn’t shed). That’s just the best combination in the world.

1. When I was a kid, I had a nightmare that while I was sleeping with my palm open, my brother snuck into my room and tortured me by tickling the palm of my hand while I was asleep and unable to fight back. Since then, I have never been able to fall asleep with […]

Dinner, oh my!

Saturday, August 20th, 2005

OMG I am so happy after eating the supper I just prepared tonight. I made a mushroom soup (with onions, parmigiano reggiano, and a mix of mushrooms including portobello, porcini, and button mushrooms, topped with a sprinkle of truffle oil) which was absolutely fabulous, then a caesar salad, followed by BBQ cornish hen (marinated in […]

Good Night

Friday, August 19th, 2005

I had a pretty rough week. I think mostly it was the weather, so my migraines weren’t playing nice. I had a bad migraine again on Tuesday, and then I was so tired that I ended up sleeping like 11 hours the night before last. Still woke up disoriented and tired.
Today was nice though, even […]

Old Friends

Friday, August 12th, 2005

This past month, I have bumped into so many people from my past, it’s almost eery. I suppose it started with the trip back to Montreal, which obviously would have resulted in meeting old friends from college and medical school (who went to the wedding), but I also had the (bad?) luck of bumping into […]

I have lost twenty pounds since January. :)

Getting better

Saturday, August 6th, 2005

My migraine was really bad on Wednesday and Thursday. So bad I hid in the bathroom at work and cried because it’s so frustrating. I wish I could do all the things that are expected of me, and I hate not being able to do them when I get these big migraines. I think the […]

Big headache

Wednesday, August 3rd, 2005

I was going to write earlier, but I think I was so shell shocked from the weekend to really write anything. To give you an idea of how my weekend on-call went, on Monday night, I didn’t get home until 9:30pm, and then was continuously called every hour from 10:30pm to 4:30am for two really […]
