Jumping ship

I have moved my fair share, of this, you can rest assured. For a few years in Calgary, it was an every-six-months kind of thing (my profound thanks to the “Morrismoving Co, Inc.) but now I have found MY home–with Malissa, over in Forrest Hill, a stone’s throw from all the wonderful yuppiness that is incorporated in Westmount.

Wait a minute? Westmount? Malissa? What the heck is going on?

Let’s backup…

My last post was replete with whining about a Urologist, bantering on about a suprapubic catheter that I was weighing having “inserted”, and got everybody excited for my next round of surgery. I am happy to report that I have accomplished NONE of those things.

The Catheter insertion was good to go–and then next thing I know, I’m being asked to report to the Neuro for a 7:30 am start. They warn you in pre-op that you can be called at any time to report for surgery, but it always seems to happen at a time which conflicts with something.

So my my left hand continues to shake like a leaf in the wind, I’m still weighed down by my endless incontinence issues, but somehow, nothing can make the smile on my face fade. That just might be because…

I met someone. This may factor in to my disappearance, but that is no excuse. The writing that I post is my catharthis. There really was nothing in my life that I minded sharing–but what exists between Malissa and yours truly, well, I think that this is something I’d like to keep private. Needless to say, I’m incredibly happy, I have a beautiful girlfriend whose looks are rivaled only by the size of her heart…

And so now best piece of news; we found a beautiful apartment that we plan on moving into post haste! Actually, we took possesion Mar 10 and we’ve been living the life ever since! I’m excited and nervous and happy all at the same time. With apologies to my family for subjecting them to the fun of moving again, but this is is the one with a little more permanence.

So we’ll end here. I’ve been having difficulty blogging on the iPad – touch screen + tremor don’t go well together – pretty sure I’ve written this pot 4 times. No excuse, I’ve had this desire to get this post out. So quick recap:

1) Surgery is on hold until my platelet count rises–did I mention my second neurosurgery was put on hold? I’m just totally “Malissa-centric” lately, forgive me.

2) Met Malissa and she’s totally changed my life!

3) I am really going to redouble my efforts to keep my blog up to date. Just been busy.

Let’s keep it up, yeah?
