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 .

JeanneP     Did you finish taking all the meds for your cold ?   Was it a prescription ?  If so dr. has told me to take all of a drug .

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 .

I have been out of commisson for a few day with food poisoning . I saw my doctor this morning & he said that was it .  Salsa is the cause .

Thank you Mary Ann . I started with what is called a  "cake" .  The cake ended with the turquoise . From there I used yarn I had . The pattern is an octagonal granny pattern .

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 !

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 !
