It’s Ice

Filed under: — Jaime @ 10:04 pm

Today I had my first ‘snow day’ in at least a decade. Of course, it didn’t snow. It sleeted ever so slightly, and there’s a bit of ice hanging on the trees and power lines. It couldn’t have come at a more perfect time, however. It added an extra day to my recovery period.

Overall, I’m doing pretty well. The cast/covering has completely come off, relieving pressure and no longer leaving me gagging. I’m done with the ultra-evil anti-biotics, which may be the worst part of all of this. I despise taking anti-biotics. They make me absolutely ill. The pain is still quite prevalent, but I’m managing it, and it certainly is getting better daily.

Before I go (and try to make it through at least the first period of tonight’s Blackhawks-Canucks game), I have to share a coincidence that happened this evening. Note, I’ve not adjective-ized it as ‘odd’ or ‘unique’ because I don’t really know if it is. You decide. While showering, I put on some old time radio. I tuned into one of the stations I regularly listen to, to see what they had to offer. It was an X Minus One, running the story, The Coffin Cure. It was about 10 minutes in already, but it was enough for me to remember that I had read this very story nearly one year ago – while I was recovering from my last jaw surgery. Wha? What do you call that? FWIW, the radio version was probably better than the written version, if only because it took up less of my time and I dig the 50′s sound effects.

Title homage: It’s Ice.
