That sounds very ouchy. VERY OUCHY.

I'm glad you got a good night's sleep. You needed it!

Re: directing the play, I've been told by several reliable sources that the key to good directing is 10% picking a good play; 85% picking a great cast; and 5% staying out of the way. I've only directed a couple of times, but it's worked for me. :-)

Awesome on the creatinine. My husband goes in a couple of weeks to get everything checked out. *Fingers crossed*

I once had a major cyst on my ovary burst. That was one serious mo-fo. I was in the fetal position all morning (couldn't even walk) until about 2 when I could finally crawl to the car. I had to spend the night in the hospital. It gave a whole new meaning to the word "bloated".

Hey, at least your house is getting fixed. Our window still has a hole in it. And the highs will be in the low 20's the next couple of days. I love heating my neighborhood.

Oh, my. I join you in celebrating the good news and I send positive energy to help alleviate the bad. I hope you're feeling better, continue to get good sleep and the plumbers fix the problem.

I am glad about the Cr function increase. This gives us all hope.

Let us know about the stage thingy sooner than later so I can put you in my calendar early.

Coming in late here, but I must cheer about your creatinine levels. Yea and hooray!

It sucks about the cyst - I can't imagine having those things in my liver and never knowing when they'll decide to burst and cause pain. Poor, sweet Ruth.

Plumbers suck, too, but it's worse without them. Hope your problems are fixed now and you can actually enjoy directing the reading in March.

Be careful today in this cold snow. At least it's dry.
