Today was another not-quite-usual day in that Mr. Moon had to get a follow-up endoscopy. Three months ago when he got his endoscopy and colonoscopy they noted that he had some esophageal stuff going on due to his chronic heartburn so the doctor prescribed an acid blocker and told him to come back in three months and so he did. He's had chronic heartburn his whole life. But the medication has helped tremendously and today's scope showed "great improvement" according to the doctor and he just needs to continue the medication and be aware.
Now all of that was quick and certainly good news but as we all know (or should know) the drugs they give you before the procedure can knock you for a loop as they did Mr. Moon three months ago and then again today. When I was allowed to join him in the recovery area, he actually said, "This is pleasant."
And then he went back to sleep with a smile on his face.
Eventually, he roused enough to get up, get dressed, and get in the car and he tried to convince me that we should make a picnic and go out on the boat or maybe go to Chow Time, which we had discussed before the procedure but I sternly told him that no, we were not doing either of those things.
So we went to the Wharf where I got us take-out and we ate in the car in the shade and he came back to full awareness pretty quickly but he's been asleep most of the afternoon.
Thus I have done very little today in the way of getting things done but I have taken care of my sweetie and watched over him carefully. He is drinking a cup of hot cocoa now that I made him. Sleeping made him cold.
The temperature got up to eighty today but because I haven't done anything very physical, it has felt pleasant. Another perfectly blue-sky day and there is much glory going on, as I so thoroughly discussed yesterday. As I may have also said, the azaleas in the front yard may not bloom at all this year due to Mr. Moon's late trimming and the freeze we got a few weeks ago. But the picture up top is of some of the azaleas that he did NOT trim and they are lovely. They are growing right beside the heat pump by the back porch.
Here are some more pictures.
And a teen-aged mother named Angel whom I will not soon forget.
