Rick is still in the hospital at St. Mary’s in Rochester. His appointment yesterday was at 10:30 and because the roads were snow covered and not all that good we left early and were there by 9:30.
He didn’t go in for his procedure until 1:36. Out by 5:30 and admitted at 6:45 – nobody told me a thing until they came to get me to escort me to his room!
I waited for the doctor until 7:45 and then I just had to go home. I have not driven at night in a long time – another sign of old age – and it was almost scary at first. And that’s after taking a different elevator to the parking garage and not being able to locate my car! ugh. I was in tears.
Oh! I’m not even sure what the procedure is called but they put balloons in his lower leg to allow better circulation — what’s it called??
So it’s now 2:15 and he has not gone down for his ultrasound yet so it looks like another late night for me. And I couldn’t get to sleep because my mind just wouldn’t shut off. You know how it is, don’t you?
PS – in this picture the leaf you’re confused about is not the Hoya plant – it’s a succulent called zig zag plant.
Here’s the heart shaped Hoya.
There are close to 20 more Hoya plants in my porch, piano room and basement! I think they’re easy to take care of – not much water, bright light and I move them outside in mid-May.
My mom always used to tell me this – Mary! You make so much work for yourself!
