It has been quite a while ago but even when my children turned 18, had jobs of their own, cars ETC, a couple of them lived at home - so I made house rules- which included a curfew as well as I would want to know what time they planned on being home. They each had a front door key and for the most part this worked well.
This helped me a lot as I could go to bed and know that if I heard a noise at 2:00 AM it was that particular child coming in. I had made up my mind that I would respect their age which was in the young adult category if they respected us and remembered who owned the house. I know some parents would feel this is tough and all adult children are different but it is your home, you need your sleep so they must help you out of get better jobs - LOL.
You and I will both be doing nearly the same thing tomorrow so let's support each other and know we will get through yet another test.
I am scheduled for a venogram tomorrow at one of the big uptown hospitals through their interventional radiology department.
A venogram is a procedure that provides X-ray visualization of the veins. Contrast material, also known as X-ray dye, is injected that is visible on X-ray. The contrast dye allows the doctor to evaluate the size and condition of the veins.
The procedure takes from 30 - 90 minutes which I can tolerate if it will help get to the bottom of the blood clot issue that developed last week. My test is considered an outpatient procedure and I have a friend driving me and staying with me. Yes, I am anxious about the test but some things we must do to get the information about our health. That doesn't make it feel any better, I know.
Giant hugs for you today,
