In March 2021, I ended this complaining blog, after I got my Covid vaccination. Things got brighter and the world felt more normal... for a while. But 6 months later, the world has gotten more complicated.
Fires continue in numerous states and hurricanes keep things crazy in our area. My brother's family evacuated here from Nola, before Ida hit. Then, Don and I escaped to our cabin, when Hurricane Nicholas headed for Houston. We were all fine.

Today the CBS Sunday Morning Show, reminded me of how far this pandemic has come, since I restarted the blog in March, 2020.
A year ago we couldn't wait for vaccines. Now all Americans have access, but the virus continues to spread. If everyone would just get on board with vaccinations, we could get back to normal. But we are back to cancelling trips and gym memberships and indoor dining, due to the Delta variant and breakthrough cases and lots and lots of "vaccine hesitancy". I put that as nicely as I can.
But honestly, climate and the covid concerns, are not at the top of my worry list right now. Once again, it's a disease that begins with C.
A few days ago, Don went in for an angiogram. We're suddenly dealing with a new term in our house. Coronary Artery Disease. There are options for treatment. Stent or Bypass? We're quickly getting educated. There's a lot to think about right now.
Back when I started this complaining blog for Cancer, I tried to add a light at the end of each post. I also tried to throw in some positives, during my months of Covid rants.
This is scary, but now I am genuinely feeling grateful. Don may have a blocked artery, but besides that he is healthy and slim and positive and lots of other things that put him in the low risk group. Plus, it's so lucky that this was discovered. Yay for science!
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast cancer and then I was done.
On March 13, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. Only this time, it was affecting more than me. I ranted for a year, until I got my vaccine in March 2021.
Coronary Artery Disease was the reason I restarted this blog on September 26, 2021. This time it was Don who was dealing with a worry that started with the letter "C".
Coronavirus and Cancer, Coronary Artery Disease! All are evil, but none can totally get me down... if I vent! I usually end up feeling a little more positive at the end of each post!
