+ 16 – Marvin, Heard it through the grape vine.

Sept. 20, 2013 – Day +16

Numbers: Luek – 4.97 creeping up a little, but still in the safe zone. Would love it to keep rising closer to 10 before I’m sprung, but I’m the tortoise in this race, so that’s how it goes.
Leuk 4.97

But the big news today, was that “Marvin” has finally been released me from the neck hold he’s had me in for the past several weeks. And I can honestly say, much less painful coming out than going in.

Here is what Marvin looks like, in my neck. Three lines to the outside.

Laying very still ready for it to come out.

And there you have it folks, Marvin, is out!  The long blue line went down my jugular to my heart.

My favorite nurse!

My favorite nurse had the honor!

So, just when you think the day can’t get better, they serve my favorite lunch.

veggie noodle soup, boiled chicken, and rice.

I take the chicken off the bone, add it and the rice to the soup and it’s like chicken noodle soup. I savor every bite. Yes, I save the bread for later, lord knows what is in store for dinner, but for now I can still taste my chicken noodle soup on my lips.

First, couldn’t not let you hear some Marvin Gaye, “I heard it through the grapevine”.

But, love this one, HIGH HOPES!

    I figured you might be too choked up to do it so I took the liberty of crafting a brief love note I thought you might be able to send to Marvin.

    Thank you, Marvin. It has been a wonderful fling! I will always remember you and the summer we spent together in Russia. But this girl from Little Rock must move on. So long my neck loving friend….I will remember you with fondness. đŸ™‚
