Due to the fact that I am so far behind, I am going to do something no intelligent blogger should ever do - post more than once in a day. The reason for this is that readers often get confused, seeing only the last post, and missing entirely, previous ones. My readers, however, are of above average intelligence, and I am quite sure this will not be the case.
This will, however, require that I make at least three posts today because, well, the people mentioned each deserve their very own post. They are that special!
Now, then, this is the World's Greatest Lymphedema Therapist:
As you can see, she simply has to be special because she is holding up a card with a picture of me! But there is much more to it than that. You see, since the Goatmother had lymph nodes removed, she is now subject to lymphedema on the affected side for the rest of her life. Something as minor as having your blood pressure taken on the affected side, or blood drawn from that side, could trigger edema at any time, regardless of how long ago the nodes were removed. Enter the World's Greatest Lymphedema Therapist. She showed the Goatmother exercises she could do that could help prevent such an occurrence. But you know what the very best part is? In a world where suddenly everyone else but you holds the car keys, here finally, is something the Goatmother feels like she can do for herself. Some little soupçon of control handed back into the hands of someone who suddenly has very little. Universe Bless the Lymphedema Therapist!
And she is a sweetheart of person to boot. How could anyone ask for more???? Unless, perhaps, she happened to have a few Peanuts on her. I'm just sayin' ...
