maryz   Have you thought about getting a Nebulizer to have at home ?  I have asthma & COPD ,  my primary dr. gave me a prescription for one .  He said I should take it & my oxygen concentrator with me when we travel too .

I had appts. with both my primary care dr. & cancer dr.   Both said I'm doing good !
Now I am babying a stubbed big toe , it was feeling better , so I wore a regular pair of shoes & it became red & sore again . It was x rayed & its not broken . This morning I discovered the nail seems to be split & is curling up . I have been soaking it in epsom salts . We have several trips planned & I hope it is healed before then !
One trip is to an old car swapmeet in Bakersfield , Ca. Then on to Las Vegas for my birthday for a week !  Later in April we have a Model T Ford tour in Buellton , Ca.  We will be driving the Model T to Solvang one day & Pismo Beach another day , while there we will drive down on the beach & have our picture taken by our car . The wild flowers will be in bloom along the roads too .

The rain has finally let up for 3 days now but another bit tomorrow .  We had a bit of hail & snow on Thursday which is unusual for southern California ! The roads are full of pot holes , I swerve around them on the freeway to save the tires .

We have had rain & cold weather here in southern California for almost a week . If it doesn't warm up soon we will need to buy firewood for the fireplace stove . The weather is depressing ! We had thought about going to a National Model T Ford Club tour in Arizona & we are glad we chose not to go .  The weather there is cold with snow !

The results of my toe x ray came in the mail today . My toe isn't fractured !  Its still a bit sore , so will need to be careful .  We are having cold rainy weather , I have been wearing fuzzy socks & sandals so need to not get my feet wet .  Our town got 3 inches of rain in one day !  There is a ditch along side our gravel road from run off .  No land slides so far .

About 2 weeks ago I stubbed my right big toe & last week it got sore .   My husband Norm had a dr.'s appt. this morning so I went along & the dr. checked out my big toe . He sent me to have x rays , we will know the results in a few days when the dr.'s office calls .

Tomorrow is our 61st anniversary . We plan to spend the day at a local casino .  Its a 35 mile drive from our home but we like that it is small , slot machines are loose & a prime rib dinner for $7.77 !

My restless leg syndrone probably has some connection to my back problem . I have scoliosis ( curvature of the spine from a childhood injury ) .

JeanneP  I have restless leg syndrone & I get a feeling of bugs crawling on my legs   I usually get it in the evenings , also sitting in church .  Its very annoying & some times painful .  I jiggle my legs & it seems to help . When I go to bed it stops .
I seem to be allergic to so many drugs I don't care to try new ones . I carry a list of the drugs I'm allergic to .

We had planed to meet our two sons & their wives for lunch on Christmas Day at a casino but one son has to work & the other called today & said he had a scratchy throat & cough & didn't want to give it to us .  So Norm & I will go alone & afterward play a few slot machines . Our daughter lives in Washington state & another son lives in the bay area . Daughter's husband works in a casino & will be working on Christmas at double time !!   She may go to the casino with a neighbor & play for awhile , her husband is encouraging her to go have fun .

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 .

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 .
