Friday, for the first time in almost three weeks, I had a hot shower in my own home.
To say that I was giddy is an understatement.
Another building resident, in tandem with the treasurer, took care of keeping people apprised of the latest phase of Team Incompetent's fixit efforts. BB made it his mission to inform TI that they were, in part, the reason for me being sick and that the fixit should happen sooner rather than later.
In the meantime, I went to my second doctor's appointment, to my internist (saw the awesome rheumatologist Thursday); the upshot is that both doctors agree that I should start physical therapy for my back, and take up swimming or yoga for my body and my brain. I used to laugh at that sort of thing. Now I'm going to make a good stab at letting both help me.
Right now, my body is still giving me a little grief (another mouth problem, plus inflammation in my ear and throat, but I'm back on the meds I took before to get rid of the mouth problems. And I'm happy to have hot water. (Mind you, the hottest water awaits, since TI is bringing in a second high-temperature thermostat for the second heater they installed.)
Hot water. MMMMmmmmmm.
