Wow. Today was hot and humid. It was in the 90's. I just wanted to stay inside all day and do nothing. I did get a lot done though. And tonight John and I rented and watched "The Miracle Worker". If you have never seen it, I would recommend you see it. It is the story of Helen Keller.
I went to group therapy yesterday. I mentioned in a previous entry that there were a couple of people that were monopolizing the whole group. Well, I am really proud of myself. I brought up to the group yesterday that we should be aware of one another's needs, and not take up excessive time at the expense of others (a polite way of saying not to monoplize). It was taken really well. The fascilitators also decided that in the beginning of each session we would all go around and check in and if we had a pressing issue we would get extra time to speak that session. When it came my turn I told them about John's test results coming up on June 16 to see if he had cancer. Everyone was stunned. They wondered why I hadn't mentioned it before. It was because I couldn't get a word in edgewise, but I didn't tell them that. At this point they were willing to listen to what was going on in my life. We all had a chance to share. The dynamics of the group totally changed. We even had a topic and problem solving. I think I am going to like this group. We just needed time to sort of allow things to fall into place.
Something else that is new is that John has to have shock wave surgery on June 17 to blast away kidney stones. He will be going under general anesthesia. They put part of your body under water. Then they shock you. It leaves bruises on your back and hurts for I don't know how many days afterwards. Then it takes a few days to pass the pieces of stones. He won't be able to drive for two days. Anyway, getting the treatment is less painful then trying to pass the stones. He has one that is a half an inch wide. Anyway, enough on that topic for now. I hope that wasn't too much information!
Well, I guess I should go to bed. Nite Nite J-Land people.
