Guilty pleasure

Finally! Sami found out that Sydney is her baby! Now what. Sue-a might be in the very near future for Nicole. She is crazy anyway, or maybe she will just disappear, possibly with Stefeno. Or EJ might have them both taken out. I would! What the heck! Now the big question: Will Sami and EJ get back together? I hope not. Rafe and Sami are the cutest couple!

Now, much more inconsequential news. No transplant, at least not now. I'm kind of in a catch 22. My doc doesn't recommend a transplant at this time. I was pretty bummed, as my left eye is doing so well. I would like to get it done and over with. That has changed from my April appointment, before we knew about MCTD. I am on too many meds, some that could make rejection a higher risk, and prednisone that messes with eyesight. What doesn't prednisone do! the miracle drug from hell as a good friend calls it. Puffy face, brittle bones, sleeplessness, just to name a few. But, I can move because of it. The doc can get me seeing really quite well with the right prescription. The problem is, is that I have to be on a steady, consistent dose of prednisone. My eyes need to be at a stable point. I am grateful for great doctors who listen and care. My eye doctor has been with me for 30 years. He is incredible!

After my appointment I went to the music store. I wanted to see if there were any great Christmas piano solos. I have tons of music. I wanted something new. Nope. There wasn't. Mostly too easy and cheesy. I would love to take the time and do my own arrangements of lots of things. Good idea. I asked our music person if I could play in church. I want and need some incentive to start playing again. Playing hurts my hands. I'm afraid if I don't keep going, I may loose the ability to play at all. That would be tragic for me. So, if anyone needs an accompanist, or a Christmas solo for church, call me. I am starting to teach piano the first of the year as well. I am so stoked!

Off to Levan to have a sleepover with my friend.


  1. When I worked at hotel Monaco, we had to wear on our name tag what our "guilty pleasure" was. Mine said " days of our lives"! how funny! And I am in for the piano lessons! Please?! Love ya!

  2. Can I just tell you how your soap opera update just made my day? Seriously, I laughed so hard! I used to be so into "Day's"....long ago when my children didn't exist and take over all my time! ;)-
    I LOVE YOU!!
