Saw Zip’s numbers this morning on My Chart. They looked much better, but since I’m not a doctor, I really don’t know. Got to his room around 8:30 AM and his breakfast, which I get to order by phone everyday, came in shortly after. He actually ate some of the oatmeal and some of the fruit, more than he has been eating. Yeah! Dr Mead came in around 9:15 and the whole room cheered up. He thinks Zip’s numbers were good enough to send him back to our little home away from home. That being said, they didn’t think they’d get him out of there until 2 or 3 PM. So, I say to myself….hmmm. You got it…Retail Therapy.
I ended up at Towsontowne Center since they have a Walmart up the street and I could buy my English muffins. Of course I said, I have to get my English muffins at Walmart and there are no Walmart’s in the JHH area. Sooo, I went to Nordstrom Rack, not as good as it use to be, but, I did find a couple things, that I needed (OK, I didn’t need them, I wanted them) As I was getting in line to pay, I thought, maybe there’s a J Jill in the mall. I went into the mall and looked on the directory and guess what, yes, there was one! So, I travelled the mall from 1st floor to 4th and came upon the strangest thing. There was a huge, huge, huge line of many women, young and old. I thought they were waiting in line for a movie. It ran from, what I thought was Nordstrom, almost back to Macy’s, which was probably about 1/4 mile or more. I went into J Jill and they were talking about the line in there. I asked what was going on and they told me, that the MAC store was having it’s big lipstick give away. I don’t think, in my wildest imagination, that I’d stand in line for hours, just to get a lipstick. I might be crazy, but not that crazy. Back to J Jill, my favorite store in the world, well Steinmart and Beall’s is close. Of course I found a couple things on the sale racks in the back. I am a happy camper.
As I was turning the corner to drive into the garage, Zip called to say he could be sprung at anytime I could get there. So, I have Zip sitting in his recliner, watching TV and drinking water and napping. He’s not as peppy as I’d like him to be, he hasn’t peed as much as I’d like him to, he’s not exactly upright, and he’s not exactly walking, but he’s back where he belongs. We don’t go back to IPOP until Monday morning, so, don’t know what to expect and how soon we can come back home in Ocean Pines.
