Busy, busy, busy

Friday, February 10, 2012

I had 2 major appointments to deal with yesterday.

First in morning was my neurologist appt. We drove 30 minutes on freeway to Tigard. He asked about how i was feeling after my IVIG treatment in the hospital & I had explained there were big changes carrying someone elses antibodies in my body. I could actually see very good and no glaring from light. He was pleased. He evaluated my strength and my breathing. Next week I will be ahving a PFT breathing test done before he can change my meds. It appears the one I'm on now is not doing it's job. so it's a wait and see untila fter the breathing test.

Afternoon appt was a pressure test and my Optholmologist gave me his undivided attention. I ahve double vision in my left eye and will be wearing a patch over it while that is going on. I will fit in perfect in the crazy Portland crowd. Picture me paddling in a Dragon Boat with a patch on. Pressure in eyes were bad because Rite Aid would not refill my Drops or contact my Dr. for more drops when prescription expired. Pffttttt So i went 5 days without my glaucoma drops.

    Oh how I hate to hear that about the glaucoma drops. Sometimes there is too much red tape. I am sure it will be fine and you are a strong lady with a fantastic attitude that will serve you well.

I am so glad you got a clear thing at the Doc's.. I go to Kroger for my Rx's.. no problems.. I would NEVER tolerate leaving the building until I got my Rx!!! I have had more pharmacists dial my docs number than carter has liver pills!! I also played the discrimination card to get them to make it right..
YELL REALLY LOUDLY THAT YOU ARE BEING DISCRIMINATED ON BECAUSE YOU ARE '
A. Older
B.Poor
C.Vision impaired
D. A woman.
there i s always an answering service to pick up the phone if your doc is not there.. Don't let them off the hook, stick like glue in the line no matter what!!!!!

    We use WalMart, they never do those things to us.
We were able to get DH glaucoma drops in Las vegas when he forgot them at home they are great that way. When Our son left one of his sons med at home they called the pharmcy and transferred the prescription temporarily and it went back to their own pharmacy when they went home.I love my WalMart.
You are the first to know this. When I get 11 more Spark points it will be 80,000 and when i logged in today i hve had 99% attendence in logging in and my cirrent unbroken streak is 580Days. i am so proud of myself. HUGS Love you.
I am gald they are doing the Pulmonary Function Test It gives a really good evaluation of your lungs.
I can just picture you as Pirate DEBS in that dragon boat. Have a great time HUGS Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

The Blind teaching the blind

Tuesday, February 07, 2012

Physicakl Therapy went well this morning. I was put on the treadmill. In the beginning Oh back in December my Physical therapist thought i looked very sick. Today she says i look well and healthy and ahppy. I told her i paddled with my Dragon boat team on Saturday and she was pleased. I even went on the treadmill there. So I'm doing my own treadmill now at ome but starting out slow.

After we left there michelle called. she is in Oregon City for 2 days and nights. We met her and John her husband at Izzy's and ahd lunch. I love her to pieces. Michelle has the same eye problems i do but she woke up one morning last year early 2010 and was in total darkness. Blind. Imaine that. She knits excellent items like scarfs and ahts and baby hats and afghans, etc. After we ate lunch She showed me how to do loom knitting. I did a good job. Fair for the first time. Michelle lives in la Grande, Oregon and is out here for a Neuro/Optholmologist appt right down stairs from my Lap band Surgeon. I hope she comes out here again soon I really got along super great with her.

What a surprise...

Monday, February 06, 2012

A visit from my beloved daughter, Ashley last night.
She has had her car for about 8 months now. Called her dealership and was in tears. she ahs had Five tire blowouts in that time and ahs spent money on new tires on all 4. Her steering wheel literally just fell off and was dangling. She kept a suitcase and clothes and school books for college in the trunk and the rainy weather we ahve ahd has leaked through the roof of the car and soaked everything and caused a nasty mildew smell. they told her to come in and they exchanged her car for a brand new 2010 Toyota corola and a pretty nice ting. It looks like a Jag.

this morning i ahd an appt with my Lap Band Surgeon. Still no fill. I'm down another 5 pounds. It's slower but it's still going. boy was I surprised. i actually thought I ahd gained. So because I ahve lost she won't give a fill or adjustment.. Now i go 2 months until i see her again. I'm 12 pounds away from my goal.

Looking back on the day with alughter...

Thursday, February 02, 2012

Leone has been sleeping in my bed replacing tuffy . she woke me darn early this morning around 5. she ahd to go out potty. so i put on a furry robe over my long flannel jammies and my slippers and we head out in the dark not wanting to wake robert. (YOu know why i want a flipping house with a yard?) she would not go but we got chased by skunks. Ugh

And so... a little alter we head out to clackamas the Diabetic bakery. Everything is sugar free and i purchased 2 scones. This would be my first ever attempt at a scone. I never ahve even seen one but hear so much about them. I bought 1 lemon and one cherry/hazelnut. Happy with my $4.00 purchase we head out to the car and it won't start. Robert tried for over an hour and a half to get the key to turn and he can't get it to go. He called a friend who came and before he got there the car started. He went home with his friend and is borrowing his big white truck. I need a stool or a ladder to get up in this truck. I'm just 4'11"

He dropped me off at this place and he went home and i could not turn on my relay service to cancel my neurology appt that was scheduled for 3 pm and my Dr. ws to discuss treatment or the next step. So i sked one of my friends to call for me and she did. I was so grateful for her help. Geez to be me...

So my appt. was cancelled and we have to call as soon as robert gets home if he does to reschedule soon as we can.

A happy ending...
This scone is darn good! It's in a cupcake paper and it's like a hardish pastry dake and the center cut out and stuffed with a delicous cherry/hazel nut filling but no sweet fructose/sweeteners tasting this tastes all natural and fresh picked cherries. I'm a happy camper.

    What a day you had, i was so glad the skunks did not spray you, that would not have been a laughing matter.
It is good you will be able to reschedule soon, that will help,
You must have read my blogs on scones. I have been making the over 60 years now. Gran taught me how at 5 years old using a coal fire oven to bake them

I make 4 batches at a time and put them in my freezer. When any body comes here they never turn down my English tea scones. I have reduce sugar added white whole wheat and King Atrher non bromated flour. DH likes them best with raisins in and he prefers to eat them with Spread, no longer butter.
I bake them now with Canola oil and liquid eggwhites.
I hope they did not upset your digestion. HUGHS Pat in Maine emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    What a day. Hint, sometimes a key won't start is for several reasons, same with not going into gear like reverse: When you turned the key off you were either: Against the curb, rolled a bit afterwards or the steering wheel wasn't straight so you have to work the steering wheel with 1 hand and the key with the other or to have someone push on the front of the rig to loosen things up so you can start it and move. Been there several times in the past with the rolling bit and still do the other with the key if I forget to put it in neutral first, take my foot off the break, wait a second then put it in park. emoticon emoticon
