1/2 c. salad oil

1/4 c. wine vinegar

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.

Mary Ann

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 ?

Thursday & Friday were nightmares !   Thursday we started out for the casino & had a flat tire on the freeway . Norm called AAA & the driver couldn't find us , we waited in 97F heat . After the tire was changed we went on to the casino , had lunch & played the slots for a bit .  When we left we went to the tire store to get a new tire , didn't get home until 6:30 p.m.
Friday it was a good thing I did 2 loads of laundry & went to the store to pick up some thing for dinner . I didn't feel like cooking so I bought baked chicken from the deli .  At 11:00 a.m. the power went off because of hard winds & a brush fire in town along the freeway . It was 106F weather , no a/c .  Norm called son at work & asked him to pick up bottled water . We have both a well & municipal water .  So no well water & didn't want to turn on the municipal water because its pressures is higher & would cause water pipes to leak .  Son came home with the water & 3 battery operated fans !
We had a dinner of the cold baked chicken & leftover garlic bread . The power came on again at 6:30 p.m.

I saw my cancer dr. last week & I told her I didn't think I needed an ultra sound of my abdomen . She suggested it when I was taking a pill that caused heart burn etc .  We agreed , no ultra sound . This morning I got a call about setting up an appt. for it .  My stomach is doing good & I know which foods trigger heart burn , so I avoid them . I'm feeling so much better since I stopped taking that pill !

My oxygen level was at 94 today , a big improvement ! I have been using a mechanism I was given while in the hospital for pneumonia in February .   I have lost a total of 13 lbs from no appetite . I have let my hair grow & Norm says I look 20 years younger ! Love that man !!  Our granddaughter had never seen me with longer hair & I sent her some pictures of when I was in my 30's . All she said was WOW !

I had an appt. with the cancer dr. his morning .  She asked if I would like to try another medication to replace the Anastrozole  I was taking & had a bad reaction   to .  I told her I would rather not take any med & just have my regular mammograms .  The Anastrozole only gave a 10% chance of not getting cancer again .  At my age she she agreed to my choice .  This medication gave me some bad reactions . Before I started taking it a couple of my fingers would pop out of joint , after I started taking it in one afternoon it happened 4 times & was painful until I used my other hand to dislodge them !  I got very grumpy , had headaches , no appetite , heart burn , easily upset & crying & frustrated .  We agreed I would have lab work done & see her in 3 months from now on .

I have an appt. with my cancer dr. for tomorrow . I got a call from her office today wanting to postpone it until next week , she thought I had an ultra sound on my abdomen & said the results would be in by then . But I didn't have one , huh ?  I'm keeping the appt. tomorrow to find out what is going on . I had some digestive problems but they are gone now since I stopped taking a med she had me on .

I have decided to not bring the Nebulizer for the plane trip .  I will be okay with my inhalers .

We will be flying to Oregon in a couple weeks for a memorial . I need to bring along my Nebulizer in case I need it .  I looked online & it says to bring it on board in a tote bag , not to pack it in suitcase , it could get lost or damaged & to bring the prescription for it . Norm says he has it some where .

I did grocery shopping this morning since I wouldn't be able to do it on Saturday . I came home tired !  Son lives with us & he had 2 teeth extracted on Wednesday. He is on a soft diet & has taken care of that himself . So I just need to cook for Norm & I .
Norm's cousin who was like a brother passed yesterday , we are planning a quick trip to Oregon in a couple of weeks for the memorial . Norm & I met through this cousin . My best friend was the cousin's girlfriend for awhile , I'm going to invite her to the memorial , she may or may not want to go .  I have to change a dr.'s appt. for this but won't be able to until Monday .

My husband ( Norm ) had invited a young man & family to go with him to the fair but this afternoon he got an email from him saying they wouldn't be coming .  Norm & I talked it over  & I will go with him but we will leave right after the the event is over . So I won't have to do all that walking .  He was so happy , he didn't want to go alone .

I am feeling bad that I told my husband I wasn't going with him on Saturday to the fair for the Horseless Rodeo .  But thinking it over I know I made the right choice for me . After the event is over he will drive the Model T to a remote parking area & we would walk  about a mile back into the main part of the fair & have lunch . Afterward we would walk around some & then walk back to the Model T & leave . It will be crowded as usual with hardly any place to sit & rest . Even if I waited for him to park the Model T & walk back & later wait for him to drive back from where he parked the Model T , there would still be so much walking .  It tires me to even think about it .

I have been off Anastrozle for a week , I see a big difference in how I feel , I'm still a bit wobbly . I had a diagnostic mammogram last week & it was benign !! I'm less crabby but tire easily . We are members of the San Diego Model T Ford Club & one of our yearly events is the Horseless Rodeo at the San Diego County Fair which is this weekend .  We play games with the Model T's in a horse arena & afterwards enjoy the fair  . I'm not going this year , it requires a lot of walking & I don't want to drag my oxygen concentrator along .  My husband plans to go & is hoping he can get someone to go along .

maryz we have a mimosa by the back steps  , I wait patiently every year for it to bloom & attract the hummingbirds .  The tree is 44 years old & still going strong .  We had a Mulberry tree that was planted by the birds & had it cut down . It was a good shade tree but the berries got tracked into the house & it made a mess .

I stopped taking the Anastrozole this morning . I know it will take awhile to feel normal again . I asked hubby to help me register with my medical online . When I was having to choose a password my brain wasn't working , I got frustrated & started to choke up . I put hubby on the phone with the person who was assisting me . I was to use high case letters & numbers & it confused me .
I hope I don't go through reactions with the next med they put me on .

jane , I am glad you are able to visit Portland , my home town !  Were you in Portland in time for the Rose Festival Parade ?  I love to go to the Multnomah Falls when we are in the area .  My Dad worked on the road crews when the roads in the area were being built , WPA , I think .

I saw the cancer dr. this morning & she agreed with me the med she had me taking to block hormones , Anastrozole is messing up my body . She told me to not take it for 2 weeks . She said not many women lose weight taking it as I have .  Lately it has affected my balance too & today I'm having a problem with my thinking .  We were at the hospital where several of my dr.'s offices are located & waiting for the elevator , I felt wobbly , stayed where I was & called for my husband .
I tried to log in to my file online & couldn't , so I called the help line .  I told the person I was talking with I would have to call back another time because I couldn't follow his instructions .
