The storm is rolling in. If you watch the local weather it should be apocalyptic, they are running the Fear Of God Doppler weather radar nonstop and the warning boxes keep popping up. Every two minutes the television emits a beeping, warning us that the end is near. I can hear it in the distance and it is thundering nonstop. It was 87 degrees today with 35 mph wind gusts, ominous. Tornado weather.
This is a normal Spring and early Summer event here in the Deep South. We have had a relatively easy severe weather season, so we are due for a blow. I hope it won't be bad.
We began our Spring Session at our facility today and I got to meet our new crop of students. Some new to the facility and some new to me, some known and long beloved. They are precious. I am so glad to be back at work. This is the best place for me. In spite of the fact that I haven't slept in 12 days (an hour here and there doesn't count) I felt an energy imbue me and a bright bubble surround me. I hugged my hero horse. From now on he will be referred to as Dallas The Diagnosticator. I mounted and rode for the first time since my diagnosis. Just a walk around the arena, but that wasn't the point. That ride put me back in the saddle again, so to speak.
Tomorrow I have my first consultation with a breast surgeon. We will discuss my prognosticators, and my procedure options, we will hash out recovery scenarios. After I will run to work, hopefully in time to cover my first class of the day. Post work I will meet one of my girlfriends for a martini and a salad, and hopefully some laughs. I guess it depends on what the Doctor says.
The storm is racing in now, just a short distance away and I am counting the seconds between the lightning and the thunder.
