Janie,  my prayers and love are with Frankie - and her Mom and Grandmom.  These "adopted" kiddoes of ours are all special!

Thanks, too, for the information on LLoyd.  I also thought he was just going in for a checkup.

Eye is better but I don't yet feel confident to drive on the busy streets and manage a parking lot.  That means I've had to ask #2 son to help me with some errands in the next couple of days.  Hate to do that because dil isn't yet driving after her hip replacement, he's suddenly busy at work and I know he's "up to his ears in alligators", as one of my friends likes to say (I have no idea why!!!!  :D )

Nothing else going on in my corner of the world (that I know of....)

Wishing a Good Evening to Everyfriend.


Amy

Good morning everyone...you too Lloyd if you are peeking in.

I am off and running.need to take Kyle out for his coffee with folks we meet. Will be back.
Enjoy your day everyone..

Good morning everyone, back to sleeping late again, maybe because it is a gloomy day, dark gloomy sky this morning so was stil kind of dark in here. Looks like that is the kind of day instore for us.

JANE  glad you will be the one Lloyd or Nancy calls. Seems this heart surgery came up suddenly, at least he didn't talk about it before. Any news yet on Frankie's tests? Prayers for both of them.

SHIRLEY  prayers for you, too to get help with your headache.

Better get a move on, have no idea wha time my "help" will be here  today. Yesterday had one I hadn't  seen in months and one I like, always looking for something to do.

Hope the sun is shining where you are.
Have a good day.

Got all the Christmas decorations boxed & now to put away. Going to make a batch of coleslaw and that is about all planned for this day. The recipe came from 4 Friends in 4 different states so knew it had to be good. Better get moving, always check in here before getting involved with my day. Hugs to all...

JaneS

Good Morning Everyfriend! It's been an eventful morning!

First, Frankie's tests showed a liver problem.  The good news is, it's treatable!  Her Mom, my daughter, is still here and will leave to return to Maryland when Frankie goes to work at 2. 

I haven't heard any more from LLOYD but he thought they were going to move him today so maybe no news until that's completed.  He was taking medication for his heart and waiting for news.  This must be the news.  Not good but at least they're doing something now.

SHIRLEY, I hope you're doing something, too.  We need you happy and healthy!  And full of cole slaw. 

I better get something done around here today.  I've been goofing off long enough. 

I wish you all a happy day!
Make it your own in every way!

Whew.........thank you, God. Thanks for the report, Jane!

Amy

Amen Janie.....that is good news. Now to hear good news about Lloyd.
Turkey carcass is on the back of the stove cooking  to be made into soup later. a chunk of pork loin cooking to be cut up to mix in with the dog's food. Little by little everything is getting back into order.

Gloria , hope the one you like comes back today for you..

I just had to stop and tell Jane that I am so glad Frankie's health issue can be treated.  That is good news.  Now waiting to hear good news from Lloyd.  Not a good start for the new year, but hopefully,  things will go weel with his surgery. Glad he will be a place where they specialize in his heart problem.  You hear so much of that type of surgery these days.  I think the medical field has come a long way with that type of surgery.  I have two young nephews who had something similar and came through with flying colors.

Good thoughts go out to all.

Time for some lunch, and then probably another nap.

Thanks to all who keep us updated especially on health issues.  This is such a sweet and caring group.  Now to hear about Lloyd and we will have a sense of relief. 

We just returned from a walk here in Tucson and it seems so odd to not be shoveling snow.  Don is able to take daily walks here and that is great for him. Our oldest son will be here in a few days - he flew to Houston for a week and then he will be here for another week.  He has been going through the house and fixing electricity plus a lot of things we are not able to climb the ladder any more.  We always love it when any of the family visits. My neighbor in back threw 3 lemons from his tree to me and thankfully, I caught them.  :)

Time for Jeopardy.We like to answer the questions but cannot know every category. Why?

Stay safe and careful walking.  I signed on for a Balance class - maybe it will keep me from tipping and tripping?     

Shirley

Lloyd, have they explained what type surgery they plan? Prayers and hugs for you & Nancy, I'm sure she is beside herself with this. My brother spent time in that hospital. Wishing you a speedy recovery before they even start!

Lloyd Hammond

Shirley they are talking about taking a vane out of either my arm or leg and ruining it from the top of My heart to the bottom of it. ( yes I have a heart) believe it or not.catch you later.

Lloyd

Tomereader1

So, Coronary Bypass surgery.  I have a friend whose husband had 4 Bypass surgeries.
He did very well for a long time, but there are other diseases that catch up to you as you get well up in age, (he was in his late 80's) that don't pay attention to the "good heart".  Pray you do well, and will be thinking of you and Nancy.

JaneS

Just checking in before bed and I see LLOYD had checked in for himself tonight.  It's good to see that!

Now I'm off to Dreamland.  I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy tomorrow.  May all your troubles be small ones and all your joys be giants!

Lloyd, when they replaced my aortic valve nearly 7 years ago, they also took the vein from my leg (ankle to knee) and made 3 bypasses in or around the heart. This past year they put in 2 stents when they did a heart cath. The doctor said the by-passes still looked good but he wants to replace the valve again. I'm not ready for that, even though it can be done through the artery (or vein) instead of opening the heart again. You must be a good patient since they keep taking you back! <smile> Tell Nancy I will be thinking of her as she waits for updates as the surgery progresses. I was in the waiting room many hours when my husband had his first surgery & later procedures. Prayers for all of you, including the doctor, and hope you are the first patient in the morning so they are all fresh & not tired.

Since I am up & had breakfast I may as well put the pot of beans on. Looked them over last night so will boil that first water & pour off and then put the ham shanks in & be ready to eat for lunch, with the coleslaw. Shirley

Amy

Good morning everyone..

No new snow as of yet but they say we are to get some. Not enough to worry about though. We are off to meet friends this morning then onto a wee village for Kyle to get his hair cut. Will see how time goes and we may head to the city.

Shirley, it is amazing how procedures have come along. BIL had the same procedure as you plus my friend also had that. Now she has a pacemaker in.Your lunch sounds delicious!! We are on the tail end of our baked beans..but no slaw:(

Carol, nice to see your son will do your ladder work for you. I do the ladder work here but when it comes to going up on the roof the neighbour does that for us.

Joy, don't you just love the fact if you want "another" nap you can do it? When working naps were not on the list but now.YES!! We all had one yesterday.. this pup of ours snores!

Enjoy your day everyone..

Lloyd, right now you are in the best place to be. So nice to see you in here but know a little patience is needed for you. They kept you for a reason and we all want you home but in a better condition that what you are in now. Nancy needs you  also at home but wants you to be  ok and not have to worry.Hugs and prayers that you will soon be out of there and fit as a fiddle!!

Good Morning Everyfriend!  You all seem chipper and ready to meet the day...even you, LLOYD!  Like AMY says, try to relax and be a good patient.  You'll be home soon and then it will be Nancy's job to keep you calm and quiet for a while and that won't be easy!

I'm back to not sleeping well at night.  I even resorted to the Melatonin the last couple of nights and I'm still not sleeping.  I know I was awake 4 times last night and it takes longer and longer to get back to sleep.  I'm sure glad I don't have to be on my feet and alert at WM these days!

It's foggy out and in the 40s this morning.  Supposed to start raining around noon and continue through the afternoon.  DREARY!  I don't like DREARY!  The only good thing about dreary is, you don't have to shovel it!  But it can be just as heavy as snow.

Jackie, it's nice to see you posting in the Soda Shoppe.  I miss you when you're gone!

Coffee's done! I'll be back later!

I wish you all a lovely day!
Make it your own in every way!

Good Saturday morning.

It is a dreary, drizzley morning here.  And a little chilly,  I think I feel a little better this morning.  Just have not been feeling all that great ever since Christmas.

I had some minor surgery on my face for some basal cell cancer spots and then the doctor gave me some cream to use on my nose for some sun damage. That really was rough to go through. Used it for about 4 weeks and I looked like I had been in the war. Really was very upsetting for a couple weeks.  Don't know why it bothered me so much. I stayed in for most of that time.  It is finally beginning to clear up and I am looking more normal now.  I had a family party today, but just don't feel up to getting dressed and going out. I will miss the fun, but, I think I am better staying home.

And yes, Amy, I am sure a nap is not too far off. 

I do hope all will go well for Lloyd and he won't be in the hospital too long.  And hope all the other friends are doing well this morning.

I did want to let you all know that I sent a message to Jack in W.Va. just to see how he was doing and to say  "Hi".  He wrote back that he is 89 now and in good health.  He and his "buddy"  Mimi are still taking almost daily walks to Oglebay Park. He doesn't drive very  far anymore, but he feels good and able to stay in his home.  He doesn't plan on returning to the Senior and Friends group, tho.  I did tell him that we all miss his wonderful pictures from his walks with Mimi.

I hope everyone will have a good Saturday.

Good morning everyone, another gloomy day with rain, foggy this morning, too.

SHIRLEY  when I joined the Nest I started my days there and now I start it here in the SS with my coffee. Only times I don't is when I have an appointment or going out early.

JANE  thank God Frankie's liver problem can be treated. So young to have a health scare like that. Thanks for telling us about Lloyd. Prayers continue for both of them.

AMY  I had one yesterday that I had when my favorite CNA was on vacation and she is like Yvette, knows she is here for the client, not to take it easy. She looked up her schedule before she  left and said she will be here the last 3 days next week. That is 2 good ones I had last week. The kind you do not have to tell every little thing to do.

JOY  hello, good seeing your post.

LLOYD  wonderful seeing you here yesterday.


CAROL  we are a family here in the SS. Ah you enjoy Jepardy, too. I am lucky when I know the answer to one question. Must say Alex looks good for fighting pancreatic cancer. Of course they must use a lot of make up on him. I had 2 sisters die from it, both were diabetics. We had classes here about keeping balace. I do have a fear of falling.

LLOYD  we know you have a heart, a kind and trusting one.

AMY  most every afternoon I rest on the couch watching TV and some days I do fall asleep. As long as I wake before my daughter gets on Skype I am fine with it.

JANE  today is the second day of gloom here, One day is bad enough.

Yesterday my oldest son called and asked if I wanted to go shopping, of course I said YES. He picked me up at 1 and we got home at almost 5. Went to 2 different stores and boy did I buy a lot to stock up. I still have most on the counters in the kitchen, too worn out to put every thing away. After I have my breakfast I will get dressed and start sorting stuff and find a place to put every thing. Think I bought the last half gallon of eggnog for the season, I do love that and go through it is less than a week.

Have a good day.

Shirley thanks I will try to be calm and behave. it is hard for me to set still. and no rest here, you just get your brain to settle down your eyes to close here and here they come with a needle and a hand full of pills. my stomach is black and blue from one of those shots they pinch up a hand full of stomach squse it and jab it in.

Lloyd

Better news about Frankie and Lloyd but I'm still keeping my fingers crossed.  I hope everything gets completely taken care of soon because I'm getting a bit of a cramp in those fingers.   :)  ;)

I'm not fond of DREARY, either, and that is what it is outside my window, too, but it is warm and comfortable inside so as long as I stay on this side I'll be fine. 

The water heater was replaced and I think I'll run a small load of laundry.  Other than that, I have no plans except to be my usual lazy self.

Have a good weekend, All.

... (( hugs )) to you, thank you for your kind and thoughtful words to me..we go back a long way, ten plus years i believe...i also offer my thoughts and prayers with grand daughter Frankie...

Glad to see everyone up & running this morning. Lloyd, you are lucky to have good wi-fi in the hospital, never could get mine to work, only now & then. I do remember those shots, not a fun week ahead for you but you will do okay.

Jane, would you believe that I go to sleep in about 4 minutes (so Fitbit tells me), was a real problem until I started back to my kid night prayers.... concentrating on each word to keep any other thoughts out, 4 short prayers ending with "now I lay me down to sleep"... and I am gone. With cats waking me up some nights several times, I do get to say them each time, but it works for me. Gotta keep the mind busy with each word.

Gloria, so glad you are getting decent help again, nothing worse that having someone around that doesn't do their job.

Amy, one of these cats snores something awful (Tom). Even old Callie will sometimes snore. They all have staked out their favorite floor vent to sleep on so am pretty sure that isn't too good for them, but what's a mama to do??? When the sun is shining & warmest part of the day I send them outside to get their dose of sunshine vitamins.

Well, Fitbit is on charge & this iPad needs to charge.... actually, MY body could do with a charge. Have a bunch of things to get done, a couple months to make up for. Still have the pain in the back of my head but at least I don't have to hold my head in my hands to lay it down. I am anxious to hear what the eye doctor says, she can tell if that pain is BP from what I understand, as well as if poor fitting glasses. I don't use glasses to read or for the computer so hate to give that up with cataract surgery... sure are a lot of decisions & choices to make in this aging process.

All you instant pot people take note.... I am still holding out & using my pressure cooker to cook this pot of beans, but weakening ....  don't know where I'd find room to store it but you girls tempt with getting these things cooked so fast. Not today.

OH, forgot to tell you, when coming up from the river last night I took a peek under the forsythia bush in the berm and discovered those crazy surprise lilies have their noses out of the ground about half an inch. They delight is showing up before anything else & doesn't bother them to get snowed on, but last year they didn't bloom because the forsythia kept them in the shade. I didn't get it trimmed back in time so smothered that second time of popping up with just the blooms. Some people call them Naked Ladies.... these came from my mother & the Garden Club called them "Surprise Lilies"...  ;)

Good afternoon Everyone !

And here we are a few steps into
2020.   I am so glad to see it is
here.    2019 really sucked, IMHO. 
Looking for 2020 to be a better year. 

I need to contemplate my weight gain,
and decide how I am going to remove it. 

Always the same issues with food.
I can loose the weight, I just need
to stick to the plan.   A couple more
weeks and I will tackle this.   
(Oh whoa !)

Hoping everyone is doing
well or at least better.

Best wishes LLoyd!

We made it home before  the snow! :thumbup:  We did run into a bit of snow but nothing to worry about. On the way in we had two stops!! One for a fox that wanted on the other side of the road and one for turkeys. The turkeys made us laugh out  loud, while most of them made it the other side of the road..one a little female came bootin across the lawn with wings just a flappin...we waited on her to meet up with the rest of them . Scored a lovely painting of a wolf at Habitat for Humanity and picked up some minky at the fabric store half price! All in all a great  day.

Joy, the Dr gave my friend salve like that and what it did was attack all the cancer spots that you couldn't see but that salve sure put the run on it.  I even took my friend back to the Dr as he wasn't told of how this salve would react!

Gloria, what a fun time you had shopping with your son!! When is your regular lady coming back?

Shirley, I must admit I am so impressed with the IP I bought a second one. Many times I have wanted to use it and yogurt was being done but now I have no excuse. Hot weather time is when I will use it more as I use the cookstove in the winter.

Sandy, putting it on is easier than taking it off. Good luck with your plan.
