Today was my first official day as a part-time associate professor at the University of Utah College of Nursing. I spent the day at Faculty Retreat learning more about the college. I worked there 15 years ago and it is great to be back. The staff and faculty were so welcoming and friendly! I can’t wait to meet the students. I was concerned about the fatigue I have been experiencing, but I feel great and have not been fatigued for about 3 days now. Yahoo! Tomorrow I will see my eye socket surgeon. I feel very hopeful that he will be able to repair my vision. So along with the vision repair and decreased fatigue, perhaps I will get back to “normal” again soon. Wouldn’t that be great? Of course, I am still subject to some emotional fatigue. So I continue to meditate daily and attend Tai Chi class.
I left Steve home today with our grandson and when I returned home Steve said he hadn’t eaten all day. Seriously?? Our grandson offered him lots of opportunities to eat but he just didn’t do it. So we had a serious conversation about the importance of calories right now and I hope he does better tomorrow. I of course don’t want to treat him like a patient, but no food all day? Come on!! Other than that, today was a pretty good day for him.
