But, well, it's relatively good news. And I hadn't forgotten anything, everything came right back to me. Our computer system is not intuitive at any level, you just have to learn it, and I guess I really have ... I hadn't forgotten a thing in 3 months +. :-) Everyone was so happy to see me ... O. especially (have I mentioned him before? yes, I know I have :-) - he stopped in his tracks several times during the day and just looked at me and said It's so fantastic that you're back!! And apparently an 'incredible number' of customers have been asking for me. So that was nice to hear.
I'm not resting entirely easy, though ... I can't go into that in as public a forum as this, there are some confidential details and things, but, well, we'll just have to see what happens. I've got my strategy laid out, and we'll just have to see.
But I had a good day at work, and it got even better when I came home. In the mailbox there was a letter from the vet - Herman's test result, finally. The infection was nothing more than what the vet originally diagnosed and which, of course, I've already treated him for. :-) And it does look much better now, it's pretty much gone. What's left is kind of a scar, if that makes sense. So he's doing fine and doesn't need any more treatment. Aw, my special little guy!! Just what I wanted to hear. :-)
Then at 5:30 KAS, trilltrall and Anne Ida came over - we had a hot dog party and then played my latest board game acquisition, Carcassonne: New World. I bought it on the 14th as a present for myself. :-) It was pretty cool once we figured out how to work the twist that they've introduced into this edition. I won, even ... I lagged behind for a long time, but when push came to shove my trappers won the day for me. :-) Thanks, guys, it was great - hot dog party ftw ... !! :-D
My little green trapper, struggling to make it in the wilderness ...
This would have been a good enough day in itself. More than good enough. :-) But you haven't heard it all.
When I was on the bus going home from work my mother called. She'd talked to her doctor. She had some tests done on Tuesday, they did a serious head scan where she had to ... be injected, I guess, with some kind of contrast fluid and wait around for hours till it had been distributed around the system, then lie in the machine for 45 minutes without moving a muscle. She has a cough right now and she was so worried that she'd start coughing and they'd have to start all over again ... but she didn't and it all went swimmingly. Her doctor - not the GP, but the specialist - had told her to let her know when she'd had the test, because then she - the doctor :-) - could start badgering them for results and hopefully we'd hear back quicker. That was nice of her, but we still thought it would take, what, weeks, probably, to get the results. But I guess the Norwegian health care system isn't as run down and inefficient as people say >:-) because the results came back on Friday - yesterday - ie in only three days. And this is my main piece of good news.
My mother does NOT have Parkinson's disease.
Happy happy, joy joy ... !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :-D
