The ER gave me papers listing when I should return to the ER. I had about half of the things outlined when they turned me loose this morning. One line says to come back if my temperature is 100.4 or higher. Right now it’s 100.7. I feel hotter than that. I have seen way too much of the ER! It’s a great place to go if you’ve been in a traffic accident or broke your leg, but not real helpful for chronic illness. Even their print-outs are stupid. Mine says “Abdominal Pain, Unknown Cause (Female)”. I suppose they don’t have a print-out for fistulas.

For days now I have had a hard time finding ANYTHING that sounds good to eat. At some part of every day, food just looks plain revolting. I was surprised this afternoon when I got a hankering for chocolate. I decided to make one of those chocolate lava mug cakes.

2 TBSP butter
2 oz unsweetened chocolate
4 TBSP sugar
2 TBSP flour
1 egg

Melt butter and chocolate in the microwave for 30 seconds. Stir together. Add remaining ingredients. Stir just barely enough to mix. Spray oil in mug. Add 2 Dove chocolates and slightly poke in. Or add a truffle, or something good and chocolatey 🙂 I microwaved for 1 minute and 22 seconds with my 900 watt microwave. Do NOT cook more than that! I like running a spatula around it and putting the dessert on a plate so I can marvel at the cakey, gooey goodness 🙂 Eat hot.

Well, just as I put that on a plate, 3 women came to my door. Nothing like getting caught in the act! I was so excited that I accidentally got some of the sauce on my nightgown. If they weren’t there, I think I would have licked it off :-p I reluctantly put the plate aside.

Olive is loving all these visitors lately. She has been coming out to see people. Of course one of the women is allergic to cats. Olive didn’t want to pay as much attention to the other two women, she kept petting herself with Marion’s hands and rubbing on her legs. Figures. We were all laughing so hard we were crying. I got out the laser to distract Olive, but she kept going back to Marion!

The 3 woman posse came to ask about my ER trip and health. They kept saying they were worried about me and offered to do anything for me. Awwwwww….

Online I have been getting all sorts of messages saying individuals, prayer circles, get-togethers and temple folks are praying for me. No wonder I felt better today! 🙂 Thank you everybody!

My body feels pretty confused about staying awake for a whole day, then napping for 4 hours in the morning and evening.

Weird weather day! The high was 94 and the wind blew hard. This is the kind of weather that spawns tornados as it goes east. Watch out!
