Update: Returning to the surgeon tomorrow. They are now finally letting me see the surgeon instead of her head nurse. Chances are, she will say the same thing—that I’m going to heal and I’m over-reacting to the rip in the back of my throat. We will see. One more day off work, which is really bad timing, but whatever.
Helpful Tid-bit: If you ever get the chance to have Ed Westwick (Gossip Girl) read you a bedtime story, you should jump at the chance. He is the narrator for my most recent book on tape, and it’s the sexiest and soothing thing I’ve ever listened to (and it’s not even a sexy book). He reads the chapters about the male lead, while some girl reads the chapters with the female lead. They really should have chosen a more suitable, sultry female. It goes from sexy and soothing, to loud and high and harsh. The story’s great, but Ed is even better. So, put that on your bucket list—be read to at bed time by Ed. And maybe a few other things. Just trying to help you out. However, if you get to check that off your list, you’d best be giving him my address so I can check it off mine as well.
Advice-Seeking: On a different note, I have a question for those of you with children. I’d really love your feedback. I’ve done some research on the internet, but have found more people with the same questions but not so many answers. Have any of your children (toddler age) gone through the stage of slapping or hitting themselves when angry or told no? If so, could you describe the incidents and your approach to handling it. Or if you know the developmental processes around it, that would be great as well! Thanks!
