Crazy weather!  It was 60* at noon.  Now, at 4 pm, it's 38*!  Think a front came through????

Sorry you're not getting your usual/expected good weather, jane.

You do read a lot, Sue.  I need  to go to the clubhouse or the library. I'm reading one John recommended, but am not really enjoying it much. I have 2 others that don't entice me, so guess I'll have to go out.

I just finished PT and did 15 minutes on the bike for the first time.  I'm tired though.

Mary, I forgot to comment on the paper work. That is weird that they paid you dividends for 2.5 yrs and then suddenly saw a problem.  I hope you get it cleared up quickly.

Sue, it is hard to keep up with birthdays. I hsve so many to keep track of that I'm always having to get cards.  Sean's is the 19th. He is the youngest grandson and will be 16!! Where does the time go?

Darlene, hope you get well soon.  The flu is awful! The TV news is full of reports of it.

Jane, sounds like you've been busy. Hope the pot luck is good. If the weather is bad, you sure don't want to go out.  Talking about your joints, the other night, my right knee was hurting so bad, that is put some Voltaren gel on it.  It was like magic and hasn't hurt since.  I'm really not supposed to use it when I take it orally, but my RX for oral is 4x day and I only take it 3, so I made an administrative decision!   ;) ;) Then I got the 1st injection of Synvisc yesterday, so it's not bothering me in spite of all the rain and forecast of thunder storms.  I wish I could take a bath in the Voltaren. My shoulders and back are crying.  Sorry about your friend's husband's lung problems.  Sounds serious, congestive heart failure maybe?  Take care of yourself and avoid the flu.
 
I think we're eating Voila skilllet dinner tonight. I'm done for the day.  Sharon

I saw my primary doctor this morning , he says I'm okay . I told him of my choice concerning my cancer treatment & he said I made a good choice that radiation burns the skin & could do harm to my lungs .  He has me taking a probiotic & Milk Thistle for my stomach because of all the meds &'m taking & for my liver .  I told him I'm waiting on the PET scan because of my cough , he agreed . I see him again in February . He has seen me through so many lung issues .

Good morning.  I've just returned from my Saturday walk to the library.  It was only 34* here, but I do have lots of warm clothing left over from 2 tours in Maine, so I was warm enough.  I walked faster than usual, too, so that helped.  I have enough to read now that should keep me occupied this weekend and probably through Wednesday.

Alpiner, That's good news from your primary doctor.  I am surprised though about his comment on radiation burns--but I'm sure he is basing that on his knowledge of you and your body.  Let us know how the probiotic and Milk Thistle help.  When I had radiation, my oncologist prescribed only what he felt I could tolerate.

Mary, it's only 38* here now and it's already 11:15--and we don't expect it to go much higher.  Thank goodness I still have cold weather gear to wear outside.  What a pain to have to go over that paperwork with a place that should have had it straightened out more than a year ago.  Good luck with making it work for you!

Sharon, I also wonder where time has gone.  Nick is now a freshman at LSU and is 19 (I think).  His birthday is in October, so he was almost 7 when he was in first grade.  Alex is a junior this year at Birmingham Southern U. in Birmingham.  He'll be 21 in April.  The older I get, the faster time passes!

Jane, enjoy the potluck--and I hope you're getting some warmer weather now.  I know you're glad you're not shoveling snow in Iowa!

Darlene, I hope you're feeling better today.  The only thing I guess you can do is to stay inside and stay warm.  Are you taking any meds to relieve the symptoms?

Enjoy your Saturday, Every Buddy.
Sue

All this talk about the weather I'm almost sure you don't want to hear this it is Sunny and 53°, the rain starts again on Monday.

All is well here on the Southern Oregon Coast. I took my friend's Staffordshire Bull Terrier to a visit yesterday to have him evaluated with me on the end of the leash, I had to quit not even halfway through the evaluation because he was pulling so hard my back started to hurt. So taking that dog on any visits is a dead issue. Glad to just be taking my Freckles on the visits.

Sue, I have been meaning to answer you about Keith, His diagnosis is Alzheimer's Dementia without the behavioral changes. He has a great long-term memory and can still do the complicated mathematical calculations in his head that he did as an architect. However, his short-term memory leaves much to be desired.

Did I tell you all that DMV  said I need permission from my eye dr. to drive? That seems ridiculous to me. But I couldn't read the ey chart at DMV.

Marilyn, glad you're having such nice weather.  I'm sure you're a good judge of whether or not a dog is suitable for visiting.

Joy and Sue, it's been colder here, too.  It's been a lovely sunny day - from inside.  The wind is gusty, and our temperature did not get above freezing today. Margaret and I are going on a trip on the Tennessee Aquarium boat to see the sandhill cranes.  We'll be inside, so the cold shouldn't matter, and I think it's going to be sunny.  There's a huge flock of sandhill cranes that stop-over near here on their migration route.  It's always a big draw around here at this time of year.  We'll see how it goes.

Stay warm, Buddies.

SCFSue   The radiologist also agreed on no radiation because of the size of the tumor & my age . He asked me how old my Mom was when she passed & told me of what value radiation would be to me .  It would offer very little to my life & he said it would not cause my death .  I told him I thought I would die of respiratory problems . I have asthma & COPD & one lung is pinched by my ribs from a childhood fall . Yes , my doctor knows my body very well & has kept me going through many respiratory episodes .

I've been to SS and Church, changed into jeans and a sweater and am now waiting for my friend up the street to get back from delivering her grandson to the other grandmother.  Cheryl will go to the AU women's game with me which starts at 4:00.  I hope she gets here no later than 3:30 as I like to watch the warm-ups.

It's still in the low 40s here and I had to walk up to Cheryl's house and tape a note to her door explaining that I'm ready to go to the game when she gets back.  Meanwhile, I'm watching South Carolina Women @ Carolina playing Tennessee which is ahead by 8 points.  The best Carolina player has a cast on her leg and one more just was sent to the locker room with another foot injury.  It doesn't bode well for Carolina.  There are only 7 minutes left in the game. 

Have a good rest of your day, Buddies.
Sue

The trip on the Aquarium boat was great.  It was in the teens this morning when Margaret and Jesse picked me up, but we were either in the car or the boat, so it wasn't an issue.  It was a lovely sunny morning.  We found the dock and the boat easily.  Getting anywhere over rough ground is always a challenge for me, but it wasn't a long way.  Plus I had a cane and Margaret to hold onto.  Jesse let us out fairly close, and then went to park the car.  I stayed inside the whole trip, but M & J were able to get out on the observation deck for part of the time.  The sandhill cranes are magnificent animals, and there are hundreds of them stopping over in the Hiwassee Refuge area.  We also saw a few tundra swans, ospreys, hawks, bald eagles, plus our local great blue herons, gulls, and white pelicans.  Kate was supposed to go with us, but her long, uphill driveway (in NW Kentucky) was iced over and she couldn't get out.  That's why Jesse got to go with us.

Sue, Good luck to your Lady Tigers this afternoon.  Of course, my heart is always with our Tennessee gals.

alpiner, glad you and your doc have such a good rapport.  That's one of the most important factors in good medical results, IMO.

Looks like everybody (except Marilyn and alpiner, of course), will be getting some really rough weather over the upcoming week.  Stay warm and safe,  Buddies!

Marilyn...good grief, what happened to your eyes that you couldn’t read the DMV eye chart?  Maybe new glasses will fix the problem?

 Alpiner....good info from your docs.  Your lungs sound fragile.

Sharon...hope your cold / flu is better.

Darlene....how are you doing with the flu?

Mary....sounds like a good trip

Sue....hope you got to the game in time for the warmups.

Joy....very chilly down your way.

We are warmer and winds died down so we were able to walk a mile or so this morning.  I can’t believe the people who are constantly in the hot tub or sunbathing by the pool or on the sundeck here on the 7h floor.  I’ve never been able to do that...just burned and peeled.

Jane

Mary, that sounds like a wonderful day, something I would really have enjoyed.  I love birding, If only I can get my back better, maybe I can go on some of our trails to do some.  I keep hoping.

Sue, hope your girls won.

Jane, I might go in the pool or the hot tub, but not for long. I have always been very careful with sun exposure.  I suspect they will regret it one day.  I'm glad the weather is nice though.  It is still very cold (for us) here and even a chance of snow on Wed. OF course, it is only 1" predicted and being Carolina snow will be gone quickly. The only problem is the driving. I'll stay home. I just don't want to be on the snow with southern drivers who don't know how to drive in it.

I didn't go to church or SS although John did.  I did do 2 loads of laundry and my PT, but dinner was left over meatloaf from last night + a baked potato.

I heard from Melanie. They got down to AL from near Indpls with their almost semi full of furniture, etc for their "new" home in Citrus Hills, FL.  I was so worried about them driving through the mtns, etc. Sangmin drove the moving truck and Melanie followed in their pickup. Now, if they can get the rest of the way south, I'll be relieved.  They had a lot of excess furniture from redecorating and beds from the kids' rooms, etc, so they didn't need to buy anything.  She said getting all that stuff out of the house decluttered it and ought to make it easier to sell.  I do hope that it sells this time when they put it up. It is so big & beautiful and on the lake that it should sell if they ccan get people down from Indy to see it.

It is 3:30 AM. My legs kept waking me up for some reason,, so I got up and took a half of a Tramadol and fixed some hot chocolate.  Bout time for me to go back and try again to get to sleep.  Sharon

Good morning, Buddies.  It's pretty chilly here again this morning.  I've had breakfast, cleaned up the kitchen, and have a load of laundry in the washer.  I'm not going to walk until after Tim's visit.  He usually shows up about 10:00 on Monday mornings, and it's almost 9:30 here now.  I must have left my cane at church or perhaps in Olyne's car yesterday and I did walk outside without it (went up to Cheryll's to leave a note about the time for the basketball game).  She was taking her grandson to his other Gran's home as that lady was keeping him until his Dad returned from a hunting outing.

Our team lost yesterday.  The first half was entirely dominated by the other team (Arkansas) who played extremely well, although we "almost" caught up in the second half.  I'm sure Coach Flo who never raises her voice during a game, but has a way of expressing herself facially had a good bit to say during the half.  Arkansas played well and didn't do what Miss. State did last week--which was keep a VERY LARGE girl under our basket--spending lots of time in that paint thingie--and standing right in the way instead of running up and down like everyone else!  So Arkansas won fair and square--disappointing, but not aggravating!

Other than Tim's visit and doing laundry, I don't have much else planned today.  When my chores are finished, I'll probably read this afternoon.  I think my cleaning ladies are coming tomorrow, but won't know until I get a phone call this afternoon.  They will probably have to do their Monday appointments first because of today's MLK holiday.

Have a nice day, Buddies.

Jane nothing happened to my eyes in the last 3 weeks that  I couldn't pass the eye test at DMV. Lots of people are being sent to their eye Dr. to verify that they can drive. My eyes had improved since my exam in June to when I was there the 30th of Dec. So It must be the machine at DMV.

Marilyn....geez, that’s the pits...and expensive if everyone has to end up going to an eye doc for a legitimate exam!

Our IA friends here are having to go home again.  He’s bad again....went into diabetic shock and she called 911to take him to hospital.  They kept him a day and a half.  She’s got him back to the ER today in Harlingen.  She’s going to have the car transported back to Iowa, and they’ll fly home.  We’ll take them to Harlingen to leave the car and on to the airport to get them on the plane..her daughter is trying for a flght on Thursday.  She said no more trips for them.  She’s at her wit’s end.

We’re to get the nasty weather Darlene mentioned, too, for the next several days. 

If you haven’t seen the news here, Jeanne Lee passed away on Thursday morning.  Larry Hanna is going to take her place as Admin as Pat is still ill.
