Wednesday I had an appointment with my Oncologist to get the results of my CT scan. I don't have any return of the cancer I had 7 years ago. He gave me a copy of the report along with the lab results, so I can see where there are some problems, but not serious at this time. I have a problem drinking water, though, and asked him about that since I am getting stomach aches when I drink it. He said to just sip it throughout the day because the scar tissue is causing a problem. He also said to eat small meals every 2 hours and that could control my IBS some, too, possibly. So I have tried to do that today. That is hard for me because I usually only eat when I am hungry and that can be anywhere from 2 to 4 times a day. But that every 2 hours thing I ended up with a few crackers, a slice of bread with peanut butter, some leftover Chinese, etc. and I was hungry all the time. That doesn't make sense to me.
The every 2 hour eating apparently did have some affect on me (and my dog, for some reason). Cassie got very energetic this afternoon and was running all over the house. I took her outside and let her run some, then took her for a short walk. Usually I cannot walk very fast, but this was a fast walk for me and I managed that speed all the way around the block (it is 5 streets rather than 4). That was all after trying to find something in my mess of a house, so I had been cleaning house most of the day. If I can get the hunger under control (and I do plan to change what I am eating, just didn't have anything else) this every 2 hours eating might just be something that helps with my energy level.

I got out to see Fancy again. She had finally shedded quite a bit of fur, but still had a lot so I body clipped her. Didn't do too got a job, but at least she won't be as hot. I got quite a bit of walking in getting things ready. I didn't know where the outlets were, to plug in the clippers, so that was one trip to the indoor barn and back. Then I went and got the clippers (trip 2) and then went back and got Fancy (trip 3). I ran into Monty and found out there was a better place to clip her, so I moved again, but not as far. Fancy has been there since the end of September and I am just finding out where things like the outlets are. Heck, as I left I realized I still don't know Monty's last name. Now, that's bad.
I have finally got some things growing well in my garden. I don't know if any of the plants that are grwing well are cucumbers, of which I planted two kinds, but I have several squash and zucchini plants growing now. I got a fairly large pumpkin plant (small pumpkins, though I hope not the tiny ones) that almost died in one day, but is now doing great, and a new chili pepper plant that I hope will grow fairly fast since it is Big Jim and not the smaller peppers. I need to get something to hold that plant up on so the peppers aren't on the ground when they start growing. The tomato plants are growing pretty well now, too.
When I went after antifreeze for my truck I found a nice Sweet Basil plant and an Oregano plant. I had the Basil before and it died and my oregano didn't sprout, so I am trying to get them going again. I think that I have the watering about right now (I hope so).

I have seen many blogs where people have just written about something they have done, enjoyed or what has been wrong in their day. I guess I don't know what the blogs are about at all. It seems to be okay if I put something in there that is depressing, but put something in where I enjoyed something and it was interesting and I get attacked.
Yesterday I wrote about going on The Creation Tour and some of the things they talked about and we saw. I never said that Creationism was science. I never said that people were wrong if they believed the earth was millions of years old. The only actual time period I said had to do with rocks that were from 50 years ago and when Mount St. Helens blew that they tested and decided they were 1 million and 800,000 years old when they were formed when the volcanoes erupted. I said they told how layers of earth formed after the flood, but I didn't say there wasn't any earth before the flood. On the contrary, without an earth before the flood there couldn't have been a flooded earth. I HAVE NEVER FORCED MY BELIEFS ON ANYONE ELSE. EVER!
But people will tell me there isn't any such thing as the creation. They say that all living things come from something in the water. They say you cannot prove creation, but how do they prove that everything came from the water. I've never seen them take an amoeba and make some other living being from it. If man came from apes, why are there still apes? Even Darwin, in the end of his book, said something about if his theories couldn't be proven to not believe them (I do not remember exactly what the wording was).
If people don't want to believe in the things we were told yesterday, that is fine. They have the right to believe what they want to. That freedom of choice is there for everybody. So don't put me down just because I say about what I have learned about. I haven't said it to hurt others, but maybe there are some people who would like to hear about those things.
