LOl I wasn't going to blog as there wasnt anything much going on.. then thought day 70! wow. Allie and I walked today and my knees really felt them. Both knees are sore, and my back. My R side is achy and when I move a certain way, but oh well, at least it isn't all the time. I am thankful that my pain isn't constant like anjay's she is in such pain.
So went to the dr today, and he was understanding about my long term and said that he doubted there was much I was going to do for that short of time, but would be a sec. or desk job. I said well I don't hae the deucation for that....
Gave me the letter from the spec. which was there allready, and i have a copy to fax to the long term. So thats where that is at.
DD was in a mood as the storage cab. she bought was full of scratches but they got to return it no problem, which is good as we thought she would have an issue adn she found another so she is partially happy. She wanted her dishwasher installed and they guy who said he would now can't. So told her to call and ask around to some companies not someone on kijjii.
So was going to do a bit of dercorating as I got all that sorted, and hubby got his tools and stuff that were left in dads living room moved. So now has to get the huge saw table out to the shed. it is super heavy so will see when ds can come help him. Anyway that is fine, it felt as if something was accomplished today. Still nothing really done for dad but there is more room so you can at least tell.
Well going to go to bed now as just aching and still have my knee exercises to do.
HUGS all and have a great sleep!

night before last was really cold, yesterday started cold and then was rainy and dull. Snowing in NB which is about 5 hrs or so from here, and yet here right now, I have my hoodie on to walk allie. Geesh strange weather so far this fall / winter. Anyway...
So we are on our way to New Minas an hr and bit away for lunch with long time friends, we try to do this every month, since we lost track of them for while. Am looking forward to it, but at the same time, nothing is getting done. Can't begrudge ds being at the hospital all day yesterday, I am only thankful that it isn't his crohns and that it will pass. Called dil she said he slept well, had a bad bout of pain, took his meds, went back to bed and slept all night. So he was going to go to work but then she said what if you get that pain, you won't be able to drive and if you are with a client. so he is calling in for one job today anyway.
Zuri, dd puppy is okay, back to normal. Now they wait for the tests as they were sent to the vet college over in PEI.
So guess all the babies are good so we can go! LOL I am hopng we aren't too long can stop in Costco on way home, pick the two things we want to get for ds for xmas and then get home. Depends as we don't want to leave Allie too long again today.
Well best go get a tad beautiful lol and get ready to go. HUGS all have a great day, we are doing chinese... good but always a wt gain. hope I don't get a belly ache.

Well I was on the phone talking to sister in law with the heart problems, via cell as we have free long distance and hubby was on phone and all I heard is yes we will be right there, take you to the hospital. So said gotta go. Ds has had a bad cold for few days but only feeling really bad at night. Last night around 3 or so started getting pain just lower abd. Thought oh no a fissure etc from his crohns but didn't feel the same. Wasn't able to sleep well, Thomas woke early and ds went to bathroom and eeeek red urine. so drank asked Anna to get up with him as Thomas was falling back asleep. At 10 he called said was going to wait and see if he felt better but his urine was blood and could we take him to emerg. in halifax. Sure of course.
So he called both his jobs, not cming in etc. we got to hosp. around 10:20 waited, they took him after a bit, then he texted us, I am in another room waiting had blood work but you can come back here. So we did and we waited and waited and waited...... then about 3 hrs later the dr went by and said di you have your CT scan? No one saw me since you and that was if the results of the blood work... anyway then got a CT scan rather quickly waited a bit more for dr to read, someone came back said your white blood cell count is fine ( WHEW as he was concerned he may have an inflamation brewing elsewhere) but you have a kidney stone 5 mm, which is right where we decide to blast it or leave it for you to pass. it has gone through to the bladder allready so now it is just to pass. So they gave him dilaudid, and flafonox and sent him home drink water....... Anyway. he got his meds and such and we got him home. so yea we don't pay but we wait, good dr, good stuff when you get it just you wait.
thank God as he woldnt be able to afford a scan etc. so we will continue to wait here in Canada. lol
Meanwhile today was the day dd puppy, Allies sister was getting anethetized for a needle i her belly to her bladder to check what all this infections are. So she got her hubby to drop zuri off and were going to spend some time with dd as she was worried then go with gher to get the dog. Ended up she peed on the table so had to keep her with lots of water to get more in her bladder. did it around 4 and we were on the way home when she called to help her.
Hubby went home, we traded seats, he went in house to take care of allie ( dd had come down via grampa picking her up to let allie out for us ) and I took her to the vet.
Hubby was stressed from his anxiety ( hates hospitals and driving home at 5 pm rush hr, rain and dark. and wondering about ds) so he just wanted to go home. I wasn't stressed but we ate at burger king as hubby and ds were starving whhile we waited the half hr for his meds to be ready at the pharmacy. So right ater I ate I got a super headache above my rt eye, still have it 3 hrs later. But funny cos while we were sitting tehre, I had brought a book to read, and when not reading I was watching evryone and thinking yea I wouldn't mind working here. Ironically enough,e ven though I was hospitalized a ton as a child and have had many surgries, I dont mind working ot being with people in hosp. Even with mum when she was dying although the situation was hard, the hospital itself I dont mind.
So hubby is watching tv, and I am minding the noise, but will soon be going to bed. I can't beat this headache. So thankful that ds knows what it is, they aren't super concerned and hopefully all will be well.
Tomorrow we go to visit our friends in the valley so there goes another day. OMG OMG I know today was unievitable and could have been so much worse, adn tomorrow we have had it planned fof weeks but I so want things done. oh well thats life and I am thankful cos ds has had so many health issues.
gotta go this isn't helping myheadache and the tv will only get louder as the voice will be on and he will put on surround sound. NIGHT LOL

And I thought hmmm when I get my knee done, I will be breaking my streak! Imagine me thinking about BREAKING one, I haven't had one to break that has gone on this long. lol
So good am, walked with Allie, had a nice very quiet walk, early Sunday am. Later hubby got up and took her around the block!!! think it may have had somethign to do with me saying I am trying hard to teach her to heal but not always strong enough to make her not pull. She is doing better and even listened when a girl walked by - she kept heeling!
Went for breakfast, so so getting to really not like it. Hubby does but I haven't much choice on the menu. Also he got ticked about something, but it is fine now and we got a bit done. Got a great deal on bil gift, was 35, shelf said 27 came up 20 so was 24 or so with tax! yes good as we aren't supposed to spend more than 25-30 and was wondering why she said he wanted that when it was that much over our limits. oh well fine and fun.
Now going to go sort out some stuff and throw it out, garbage day tomorrow.
May be back later, I am hoping a spark friend will reply to a challenge I put out to her.......
HUGS and off to get a bit more done and feel even better about this mess.

I honestly can't believe it is 65 days since we have gotten Allie. She is learning a lot and doing better, growing a lot too 27lbs now at 4 months on the 3rd of this month. Funny to watch her with 2 toys at the same time, Must get some new pics of her.
Well still not what I would call depressed but blah. I wanted to do a bit of decorating tonight, but can't get at the cupboard to get the stuff out for paint and stuff in the lower hall.
Did drive the crew to the legion stayed for one pop and visit as dd friend and her hubby were there too. Then I came home and walked allie, fed her and myself then went and picked them up. Was fine then read a few blogs got blah lol sometimes it really doesn't take much. Hubby swears I am bi polar cos I get so down but I don't have highs and no other tendencies just feel low fast and it goes usually fast even within half hr. If I am down just look at decorating mags and I will be fine most time.
Got winter boots, most were on sale but did find one pair on sale that felt good, then tried some others then baack to them and my toes on my L foot felt squished. Finally found a pr not in love with the look but they didn't hurt anywhere and with the square toe box I have ( my toes are all nearly the same length I don't have the reg shaped foot, and it is wide and high instep I am so happy if whatevr is on my foot doesnt hurt. Also hubby found a warm pr of slippers so now my feet shouldn't ache.
Biggest new of the day.. Long term called. Asked how I was, etc. told her that I had to get a knee replacement... ohhhhh. Then said that the functional assesment was done, that she suggested I may never be able to get back to that job but should be assesssed to do 3-4 hrs a day 4 days a week... sedentary. I said well interesting, cos she dint' have me sit for any length of time or do any type of desk things and I can't sit long cos of my back. OH are you still going to chiro... NO I told you I haven't the $$ for it. Oh maye they will give you a discount, hello maybe since I have said that my back is much worse since no chiro... you can give me more chiro. anyway. So wondering what will come of this now that I have to get my knee done told her 1.5 years to wait and 9 months to year to recuperate.
Some of the people at the legion told me to call and say you want on his cancellation list and maybe can get done in 5 months. So think once spring starts I may do this, I really don't want it done in winter. ( but who knows they may call me next winter so whatever). I told the guy who has both knees done at the same time who is 65. that I wanted time to strengthen and stuff he said yea and write that letter, and clean the house, and go visit and ..... lol he said I know what you are doing. I said oh yea for sure terrified, but do want more strength.
DD friend said tonight at the legion, so xmas eve your house right? I said well I am living in boxes, haven't any decorations, but give me a week and let me see, DD said we can do it at my house. Anyway will see.
Talking to dil today for what all they want. and having a problem getting Thomas boots, he has a high instep and wide feet ( gee sound familiar?) so told her instead of grampa ( dad) giving them a gift cert to a certain store, then he can give $ towards his boots. She said great. So will get Eva more clothes from dad and then give Anna $ as she said she wants some new stuff and that is fine. Lisa still no idea, mabye can of paint.
Told dad tonight I would take the $ for my boots, and the gifst out of his account, he said okay and what about chris and Mike I said you got them the heaters... oh yea wellllllll. LOL Geesh scrooge then forgets LOL
Well best go check the flyers and see what all is on sale that I can get for them. I will go to the local bookstore and get both kids a book and she said they didnt need toys. So will do the book instead.
Thanks for reading, feel better now and hope you all had a great day and have a super weekend. HUGS
