>Alyssa brought me to the E.R. at 10:30 am on Wednesday. Such a good friend to wait with me for two and a half hours. We’ve decided that our friendship moved up another notch on the closeness scale after this shared experience. The nurses and the doctors were all very nice to me and the whole thing wasn’t as stressful as I had anticipated. The only strange thing was when the lights started flashing and the words, “CODE RED” were blasted from the loudspeaker for about a minute and a half. Nobody panicked so neither did we.
Diagnosis: It’s not clear what’s wrong with my back and it’s going to be a couple of weeks before I know more.
In other news, life is busy, busy, busy. All my submissions are due Monday. I’m completely behind. I’m enjoying Grace Paley’s Later The Same Day more than Riva and mom did though it took me a while to get into it.
Tonight: Aveda Institute for a brow waxing.
Tomrrow night: Low show (Duluth, Mormon band) with Maggie
Saturday night: date night!
(Doesn’t the photo of Alyssa look just like Riva? Also, this is supposed to be Alyssa’s author picture for the back of her first book.)
