Not the A to Z April Challenge : Underneath

The secret lies  buried underneath

Layer upon layer of grief

Under the damp scented loam

Where above feet do roam.

Unloved  and unwanted

Lost for evermore

Lost  haunted

        I’m getting through it Willow. The needles have gone better (four on Monday and they got the last one in, first shot good on Wed.)). Serious intestinal issues flaring up this week – a result of the radiation treatment so many years ago. That caused some problems at dialysis (as you can imagine being hooked to the machine with blood lines, response time is slow) but we got through it by gritting our teeth. Construction at the hospital so they have moved our pick up point to the other side of the hospital from dialysis – meaning about an additional 1/2 mile walk to and from treatment each day. This will apparently be the plan for the summer while they work on the main entrance of the hospital. Some bureaucratic bulls**t with my transportation that I will rant about during If We Were Having Coffee this Sunday. On the bright side my landlord is upgrading my apartment to a bigger unit at the same price so they can work on the leaking ceiling – which has started to leak again this week after a winter of respite. He says he will give me the people to move as I am not able to do much lifting or walking. The move will be the first week of May after the rush (a lot of students rent here and the end of the university year is coming). I am nervous about that although I have very little, I can’t get down to clean floors and stuff and am afraid that i’ll lose some of my deposit. Although they will be tearing out walls and ceilings in my room (water damage), so i doubt they will care much how clean it is before they start.

        Anyway, Ha!, thanks for asking Willow – sorry i ranted on. Hope all is well with you and yours – how did the party for the Newbie go last week? All OK?

        Hi Paul so glad to hear all is going well with treatment this week. Though I am sorry that you still are having internal repercussions from the radiation therapy you had years back. I am not pleased to hear that an extra 1/2 mile walk has been added to your journey ! It all means extra stress for you. The authorities mist know so I can’t understand why your transport arrangements can’t be reorganised to accommodate you and no doubt other patients too. I look forward to your rant.
        The Birthday party was lovely and it will be discussed when we are having coffee. Be well Paul hugs. Xxx

    Powerful. You do well, Willow. These prompts can be overwhelming for some. Would be for me.
