Day 2621: I don’t want to bore you

I don’t want to bore you, but yesterday morning I heard  Stevie Wonder singing about not wanting to bore you either:

Personally, I’m not bored, at all, and I wonder why so many people worry about being boring. People are SO interesting, as I hope you can see in these photos from yesterday:

I don’t want to bore you with it, but Michael cooked a new fish last night.

I don’t want to bore you with this story, but when I was in my first year at college, one of my professors told us on the first day of class that he would not remember any of our names and quoted a biology professor saying, “Whenever I remember the name of a student, I forget the name of a fish.”

I don’t want to you bore you with this, but I can’t remember the name of that new fish Michael cooked last night.

I don’t want to bore you with this, but

  • I get my teeth cleaned every three months because  I got endocarditis three times in my life,
  • I’m getting my teeth cleaned today,
  • I haven’t gotten endocarditis for ten years,
  • I’m seeing my cardiologist Dr. Deeb Salem next week about my very unusual heart, and
  • I’m doing fine, even if I worry at times.

I don’t want to bore you with it, but I’m in the photo at the beginning of this post:

I don’t want to bore you by quoting more lyrics of the Stevie Wonder song but “I don’t want to bore you with it, but I love you, I love you, I love you.”

Day 1809: Caregivers

Today’s title is inspired by this photo

IMG_5675

and by all who give care, including my co-worker Janice.

Janice, a caring nurse who gives great care, loves purple, and she took care to show me her purple Christmas tree yesterday.

Here are other items Janice has carefully placed where she gives care to patients.

Janice, who obviously cares, always autographs her work with excellence.

Later in the day, I saw my excellent care-giving Primary Care Physician, Dr. Laura Snydman. She cared enough to tell me that the excellent care my very unusual heart has been given by caregivers from Boston to Minneapolis has paid off. With good care, my caregiving heart should last many more years.

Do you see any caregivers or caregiving in my other photos from yesterday?

I now care to give you this funny cat video that might lower anxiety as much as (or even more than) exercise:

As always, I give caring thanks to all who helped me create this post and — of course! — to you, for the care you give.
