We went to Blue Nile for dinner on Saturday. As usual, we got the vegetarian meal for three. When we get the version with meat, we don't eat enough of it to justify the added cost. The vegetarian version is tasty, filling, and what we really want when we go there. There was live music which isn't really our thing but wasn't terrible. Service wasn't great. We ended up waiting for five to ten minutes at a time on three different occasions. There seemed to be plenty of waitstaff, and they were by no means full, so I really don't know what was going on.

I sent patient portal messages on Saturday to the oncology nurse I see to discuss my decision to stay off of Tamoxifen and to the sleep disorders clinic to ask what I should do about the c-PAP. I am almost entirely sure that the problem is not the headgear. I have issues with being worried that I'll break the hose, disconnect the hose, bend it so that air can't get through, etc. I also have issues with feeling like I'm trapped by the machine itself. Taking off and putting on the headgear feels as insurmountable as sitting in the middle of a row in a crowded theater and desperately wanting to escape. (I felt this yesterday while sitting at my SIL's house because I was stuck in a corner and couldn't get out without getting several people to move. It's very stressful even when there's no reason for me to need to get up at all.)

I'm still bleeding pretty heavily. I suspect it's going to continue for quite a long time because, looking at the hysterosonogram report, the lining was at 18 mm when normal is between 3 and 7 mm.

I discovered that our bottle of naproxen expired three years ago. That explained why it wasn't actually helping with my cramps. We've bought a new bottle, and that is helping. Sadly, getting rid of the cramps cuts the flow to nearly zero, so things will last that much longer.

But I had to change clothes four or five times on Saturday, so this is better. I was really worried about leaving the house yesterday.

We spent about five hours at Scott's sister's house yesterday. We left much later than planned because everything we tried to do kind of blew up in our faces. Cordelia's back went out rather abruptly Saturday evening, and she was still hurting a bit by Sunday morning. She doesn't seem to have done anything at all to cause it, either.

I'm glad you realized your meds had expired! That would be terrible if you never realized and just kept taking them.
