Mei-Shun went out on Ms. Scarlet this morning to see Dr. A after getting CT scan. Thanks to rainy yesterday, refreshing air seems humid enough to stop dust and cedar pollen flying around. And oh, it is White Day set in combination with St. Valentine’s Day celebrated last month. Thank you so much, Dr. K and Professor M. She wishes above delicacies to bring nice news.
Oh, what a gale it blows today! Mei-Shun still found ume plum buds growing in quieter morning, thanking a next-door neighbor who kindly cut big branches around above tree of chimerical flowers. This spring might see normal 三寒四温, 3 cold days before 4 warm ones. Solar February had a snowfall on the 2nd weekend, all dry through 3rd until sleet last night.
Mei-Shun continued to practice “Salut d’Amour” during Shin’s business stay in China, has learned how to say hello clearly to him on Ms. Piano. You need tuning soon, darling, who is sweet enough to sing moonlight scores often these days together with her best friend. Shall we look for a new technician this time, expecting one shares gender at least in mind?

… and 3 days have passed since Mei-Shun left the hospital when Dr. A kindly gave her a “Yes” phone call this afternoon. The former lady said that next CT scheduled on 14th, March 2023 could be the last. Well, that scanning is no burden if added to one of half-an-year checks. And her body under neck, above legs are precisely examined. Only good things it has.

Mei-Shun saw Dr. A for a half-an-year check today. There were many outpatients at the hospital, forced her to make a queue for every procedures. Ah, next week has two of our national holidays including Respect-for-the-Aged Day, that might be why. A room to take blood samples were full of elder people. They are lively enough to come here, while most of inpatients are not.
Novel to NormalStandard
Mei-Shun went to a research institute with mom-in-law today, to get the 3rd vaccination against that coronavirus still “new” following 4 kinds already found among us human beings. Gods of rain kindly stopped falling when they got on Ms. Scarlet. It was the first time they entered the site. Beautiful trees in light green, white and pink welcomed them under gray sky. It might be why they saw no crowd.
Both of solar April and lunar March start from today. Mei-Shun visited 日先神社 after driving Shin to the nearest station. Cold rain stormed out warm air, made her feel frozen in hands. She still enjoyed wet cherry blossom avoiding drops thanks to a blue umbrella full of patterns of the same flower. Now which messages would she receive from Gods by omikuji lots? … well, might be better than before.
Bota-mochi or Ohagi handmade on vernal/autumnal equinox respectively by mother is favorite of Mei-Shun, her elder sister and beloved father. Still haunted by that novel coronavirus, she has not been able to visit home of her parents on above days for as long as 2 years. She therefore plans to cook it by herself, went out for a hair cut at a salon nearby Tokyo Station instead.
… day when Mei-Shun visited the hospital passed. She has not received medicine yet for 2 reasons; one is a prescription Dr. A gave her, the other is her pill box where some still stay on a table. As to the former, this ex-inpatient had a phone call while driving toward home. She did not replied immediately (of course not), later found the number similar to Dr. A’s, called back to know that above is a bit wrong.

Mei-Shun finally saw Dr. A with CT-image taking just before noon today. It should have been at the end of January — when they always said “a happy new year” while “please have a nice end of the year” in July. The former would have been fine; especially 2022 who had lunar New Year’s Day on February 1st, yet the latter a bit weird; changed from midsummer to autumn hereafter. It seems still too soon even for demons to laugh at.
