What a difference a pill makes ...

Actually, more than one pill!  We picked up my new prescription of pain pills two days ago and I held out until today.  Man, though, it was so nice to take a nap today that lasted longer than 20 minutes.  I actually woke up, turned over and went back...

GOOD VISIT!

Had a wonderful (but short) visit with my daughter.  I thought she would be arriving late Wednesday night, but she showed up with bells on around 3:30 in the afternoon!  That was nice.  She took me to the hospital for blood tests and then to the...

OFF TO THE DOCTOR -

So what else is new, right?  This is just my normal 4-month checkup, but I still have a cough from my latest bout of bronchitis, my legs and feet are still swollen, my potassium is still too low and my bad leg is giving me fits!  Woohoo!  Plus,...

QUICK DIL UPDATE

My daughter-in-law was moved into a private room last night - a room with a private bath and a shower!!  The poor kid hadn't had anything but sponge baths since last Tuesday.  I'd be putting it mildly if I said she was thrilled.  Now she has clean...

EVEN MORE GOOD NEWS ON THE DIL FRONT

My son informs me that his wife will be moving into a private room some time this evening.  Yay!  He says she looks better, but isn't getting enough sleep because of all the interruptions.  For instance, she has a CT scan every morning at 4:30 to...

ANOTHER DIL UPDATE!

My daughter-in-law called me again this afternoon.  She said she had both speech and occupational therapy today.  She had a little trouble saying "occupational", but otherwise she sounded almost like her old self.  She also sat up in a chair most of...

UPDATE ON MY DAUGHTER-IN-LAW

Hi, all, and thanks for all your good wishes.   My dear one is still in intensive care and will probably be there for a little while yet, but she has been up and walking (with assistance, of course) around the unit twice so far.  She has been...

A SURPRISE, AND NOT THE GOOD KIND, UPDATED!!!

Since I can't get Thoughts to let me post, I'm trying this - hope it works!   My daughter-in-law is doing much, much better already.  She was moved to a regular room last evening and is already using the phone (of course).  My son took her an...

GUILTY UNTIL ... JUST GUILTY, A STORY

Bob was a regular guy, a nice guy if you asked anyone who knew him.  But his friends were few and far between since he had moved to the small town of Breedlove, Texas.   Bob had made the move because of the job offer, a local management position...

IT'S UP! IT'S UP!

We now have an address plaque on our house, and I must say it's very attractive!  I'm not sure what he did about the problem with the holes in the siding, but there it is, looking very professional, and probably not noticed by anyone around.  Oh well,...

CORRECTION TO OUR ULTIMATE FUTURE ...

I mixed up my cemeteries.  There is a Sweet Church Cemetery, but we won't be in it!  We' re going to Mount Pleasant, a Lutheran cemetery.  Quite a large number of hubby's relatives, going back a ways, plus some close neighbors will all be in a clump...

UPDATE ON THE (UN)ADDRESS!

There has been progress!  The numbers are cut - beautifully with a skill saw - the board has been built and painted, as have the numbers.  The numbers are attached to the board.  A chain is attached to the board.  All that remains is to attach the...

OUR ULTIMATE FUTURE

We finally made an appointment with the local undertaker's sales person.  We've been putting it off for years, but after all, we're in our early seventies.  I can expect to go another ten or twelve years.  Hubby, of course, will still be chugging into...

AND A GOOD DAY WAS HAD BY ME ...

There's blueberry buckle and a huge bowl of pasta salad in the fridge.  I got everything finished before Hubby returned from his trip to the doctor with his dad.  By the time I got up from my well-deserved nap this afternoon, I could hardly move.  I...

PLANS FOR TOMORROW

I hope I feel good tomorrow.  I have big plans if I do!  Hubby bought some blueberries at the store earlier this week.  They're nice-looking berries, but kind of sour.  I want to bake something with them.  If I put enough sugar on them, they'll taste...
