I discovered it was our next to the youngest son . I had commented on pictures of his tree he posted on fb about how beautiful it was . I told him I appreciated him thinking of me . I didn't tell him how upset I was . He asked it I decorated it with enclosed decorations . I told him no . He said even if I didn't decorate it I could keep it indoors . Its on the front porch, I told him his dad will plant it .
Years ago my husband thought it would be a good idea to drive around the neighborhood to look at the Christmas lights ( he was trying to cheer me up because Christmas time I get so emotionally upset ), he meant well but I broke down crying & told him I wanted to go home !

This isn't about a medical problem but I need to get it off my chest .  There was a package delivered today that has me very upset .  It was sent without a name . Its a live potted Christmas tree with all the trimmings .  To most folks this would be a welcomed gift . But you see my husband doesn't believe in having a Christmas tree , he thinks it comes from the pagans . We are Christians & we do send gifts to our children but don't celebrate the day as others do . my family celebrated Christmas & had a tree but for 60 years there hasn't been one in our home .  We aren't told what day Christ was born so we don't celebrate at this time of the year .  I have been crying because it brings back very pleasant memories & I try to just be quiet & not raise a ruckess. I'm going to have my husband plant it in the yard .
I have tried to reach the company that sent the tree & am waiting for them to call .

The appt. with the cancer dr. went well , she was happy with my lab results .  She said to exercise but that is pretty difficult with my breathing & back problems .

I have an appt. with the cancer dr. tomorrow morning & will learn of the lab reports  .  Next week I have an appt; withe cancer surgeon  & will have a mammogram . I'm feeling & doing better than I have for months .  Hoping for the best on the lab work & mammogram coming up .
I saw my primary dr. last week & all is good with my asthma & COPD , the dr. was very pleased .  He reminded me no more salsa ( food poisoning not long ago ) .

This month is full of medical appts.  I saw my primary dr. this morning , he wants me to have lab work done . I told him I'm having lab work tomorrow for the cancer dr. & he said his could be included . I'm happy about that , One last trip to the lab !  Then I don't see him for 3 months !! Then there are 2 more dr. appts. coming up .
We were in a holiday parade on Saturday & afterwards we all went to a Mexican restaurant for lunch . My lunch was so rich I couldn't eat it all & while still sitting at the table I had to take a Tum !

We are going to try to get our flu shots this afternoon . We need the stronger shot for older people . Last time we went they were out of it , was suppose to call us when it came in but didn't . I need to avoid getting sick , it really hits me hard & ended up in the hospital in February with pneumonia & a collapsed lung .

Hi buddies....we finally had some sunshine today...but more rain in forecast...Are any of you taking or have taken the B/p med Amlodipine ? I have been on it a few months...having fatigue and sometimes night sweats.....I really think its side effects from it......will talk to my Dr on next visit......would like to get off it.....hope everyone had a nice weekend....Jane when do y'all come to Texas.? Hi to all Darlene


I have been taking Amlodpine for years & have had no side affects & I'm very easily affected by meds .  Because of respiratory problems I tire easily . As one of my dr.'s said I tire myself just breathing .

What a night .  I have a cough , Used the nebulizer before bed time but still coughed .  I tried a cough drop , didn't do much good . Took cough syrup , then had pain in my left hip . Finally got up at 5:00 a.m.  Maybe I can get a little nap this afternoon , I hope .

In regards to the hearing yesterday I got so upset listening to the garbage I left the room & Norm watched it by himself .  I can't listen to arguing , when I was little I heard my Dad & sister argue & it threw me into a tizzy !  I saw the blood veins on my Dad's neck bulge & it scared me .  He died when I was 12 .
All is well here for a change .  Last Saturday we went on a Model T Ford tour & went to an old gold mine . There were mine tours but I chose not to go on it because of my breathing issues .  There was a group of us who chatted & waited for the others to come back from the tour .

Our daughter lost both of her sons , youngest passed 5 years ago & her oldest son a year ago . Every year she she remembered the youngest son's passing & probably had a nervous break down . The boys (men) were very close & the oldest drank himself to death mourning his brother . Our daughter was by his bed side every day until he died .  This year she started drinking , I got a pm from her husband on facebook telling me she was passed out drunk on the bed & maybe I could talk with her , he had disabled her car . . I was recovering from food poisoning but called & left a message on her cellphone to please call us , we were concerned . She called & Norm talked with her . She said she was going to the doctor the next day & she did  .  Blood work was done & her potassium was extremely low .  The doctor gave her a prescription for some pills & a shot . She is to have more lab work done tomorrow .  Praying her heart wasn't affected .  She needs help badly & is getting counseling . Her husband is a gem !

I don't remember if I posted this or not , so scroll on by if I have .  I have been out of sync the past week after I had food poisoning on Sunday . I stayed home from church & was glad I did !  It was the intestinal form .  I saw the doctor on Tuesday & he confirmed that was what I had .  He asked me what I had been eating & it seems it was salsa I bought at the store , there was a bit left in the container & it must have been the culprit .  I haven't felt like eating & when I do its usually toast with peanut butter .

Lovely, Alpiner; I can just see an older girl wrapping herself in the afghan to read or even to walk around with it as a wrap.

I had one yarn cake . When I used it up I picked up on  some similar colors in the yarn cake from my stash & added them .

I had an appt. with my primary care dr. this morning , had an EKG & he said I have the heart of an athlete !  He also told me the asthma & COPD are caused from a lung depression ( I fell when I was a child & now have a crooked back & the ribs on that side are pinching my lung ) .  A friend's husband gave me some information that helped him with his COPD . I told the dr. about it & he said it was to move mucus & that isn't my problem & I would have a reaction ! I told the man I would look into it but glad I didn't try it !  This man was a smoker & finally had to give up smoking . We don't have the same health problem .

Thursday morning at 6:30 a.m. we flew to Oregon for my husband Norm's cousin Roger's memorial service at 2:00 p.m. Afterward family went to Roger's sister's home for a get together & lunch .
Our daughter came by train to Portland & we picked her up . My best friend from high school was Roger's high school girl friend & she & her husband came to the memorial service too .
Yesterday we  had lunch with our daughter , my friend , her husband . Afterward we drove our daughter to the train station for the trip home . We went to the airport in Portland & flew back home . I would have liked to stay longer but I have a dr.'s appt . next week .
So today has been grocery shopping & laundry !

SCFSue    Norm is 82 , the dr. told him he is a 50 year old trapped in an 80 year old body !  He is  still very active , his mind is sharp .  He has 3 Model T Fords which her keeps in running order & we are in 3 parades a year !!  There currently is a club member's Model T in our garage that Norm is working on . He isn't happy unless he has grease under his finger nails !

My husband told me this morning that he couldn't hear me breathing last night & was worried that I had died . He said he touched my arm & I moved . Scary huh ?
