It is the death flow 1:27 PM Friday afternoon. Here where we live out our lives it is a cold partly sunny day. It is beginning to feel like Spring finally.
This morning Carol and I left for the hospital for her colonoscopy around 7 o’clock AM. While Carol was undergoing her colonoscopy procedure I waited in a area separated by a curtain in the area of the Holland Hospital where they do colonoscopy’s. Carol knew all the nurses and carried on conversations with them as they prepared her for a colonoscopy. Everyone told me they loved my wife and that she was a great nurse. I know Carol loves being a nurse and enjoys working at the hospital. Carol likes the comradeship of working with nurses and doctors. My wife likes working as a nurse and being involved in the health care of people.
While Carol was undergoing her colonoscopy I waited and read from a book titled, ‘The Marshall Plan: Dawn Of The Cold War’ by Ben Steil. We were out of the hospital by 10 o’clock AM. Carol did fine and she wanted to know if I was hungry and wanted to go out for breakfast. So we went out for breakfast and after breakfast we visited a thrift store and picked up developed photos. When we got home Carol laid down for a nap and I have been reading my books and writing in my paper diary.
Carol is now up from a nap and I am writing in my online diaries. Existence keeps decaying. I have been reading from a book titled, ‘Dark Continent: Europe’s Twentieth Century’ by Mark Mazower.
Last night I wandered the house, read some more of the novel ‘Merry Men’ by Carolyn Chute. I went to bed early. Now it is the last Friday of March 2019.
I suppose I will close. I am still sick with a cold. There is no way of escape.
