If you missed my harrowing adventure in health last Thursday morning, you can find all the needle-filled details at last week’s post: “I’m In A Glass Case Of Emotion!” (caution: there is a photo of a giant spider under a glass jar, and for those of you still upset over that photo don’t worry – karma got me back when a giant spider jumped out of the fume hood at me this week).
To pick up where we left off, my bloodwork came back on Saturday, but because I hadn’t been fasting my glucose was high (and my potassium was low). Which meant I had to go back in on Monday morning for “fasting” bloodwork (more needles!). The good news was: I don’t have hyperthyroid or anemia. Whew. Score one for healthy eating!
Saturday day, by the way, was awesome because I was able to meet up with my new writing buddy Adriana Ryan! We were supposed to be editing, but we ended up talking for three hours instead
Saturday night I tried playing WoW, only to discover the new changes made my hunter suck and my cat kept dying And then a political rant I read on FB made my heart rate skyrocket again! I had to shut down the computer and read for a bit until I could sleep.
And of course I couldn’t sleep on Sunday because I was freaking out about needles the next morning. Luckily that nurse was also very good at drawing blood (and I apparently have very good veins for it). So they sent me on my way to wait for more results. The agent round of #GUTGAA also started on Monday, so I was just a big ball of nervous energy that day.
So far I haven’t heard back about my bloodwork (the Dr called this morning, but I was taking the dogs for their morning walk and we’ve been playing phone tag ever since), and I haven’t gotten any requests on #GUTGAA. Which is actually a good thing, because it means my heart hasn’t been going nuts!
EDIT: I GOT MY FIRST REQUEST! And now my heart is going nuts
Second Edit: Blood work came back clean! They’re going to get the heart monitor thing ready and give me a call soon.
On the writing front, I need to re-do my query again based on a comment by one of the judges in the last round (I didn’t have time to re-write it before the agent round, because, you know, I thought I was having a heart attack). I still haven’t written the synopsis. The final edit is coming along very nicely. I was figuratively banging my head against the wall last night trying to figure out how to get the last merging Kindra scenes to work. I decided to go to bed and sleep on it, then literally banged my head into the wall! Right on a corner. I have a huge goose egg on my forehead and an even bigger bruise on my knee, but I woke up this morning with an idea that will merge them nicely, without having to re-write most of it So…um…yay for having a giant bump on my forehead now? Ahh, the things we do for our stories
