I spoke to mom on the phone. She said some telamarketer keep calling and so she decided to play with them. Now understand all mom has is an old computer that has a dial up connection.
Do you have windows
Yes I have 3 in the living room, 2 in the bedroom, and
No that isn't what I mean, do you have a laptop.
Yes doesn't everyone. Every time I sit down I have a lap and it has a top. Sometimes I sit by the window then I have a laptop by the window.
No do you have widows on your computer?
Yes, sometimes I look out the widow at the birds when I'm on my computer.
That is when the telemarter hung up. and she never called back.

Today I had my cat scan to make sure I had kidneys. I had an ultra sound that wasn't ordered and it came back I had a cyst on one. I'm not in any pain and if they hadn't bone the ultra sound would never have known it.
Well they told me nothing to eat or drink after midnight. I asked if i could have water. I was told tiny sip is I had to. Well I didn't get home from work till midnight. I was thirsty, but di as I was told and just a sip. I normally keep a glass of water by my bed, but didn't last night. I woke up with the worse headache, got dressed and had DH take my to the Dr.
They gave me 2 big things of flavored yuck to drink. I finished the first and must have looked strange because the nurse gave me a look and asked what was wrong. I told her it wasn't staying down. Then I got back from the bathroom they other was gone and was told they were going to try with what I had.
I got to the back and the nurse in the back tried to put an IV in me and said I was too dehydrated to get my vain. So she would only be able to do half the cat scan and we would have to see if the DR excepts it. Ok, my head is killing me, I only managed to drink 1/2 the drink and it came back up and the can't give me an IV and we might have to do the whole thing over again.
On my way out I ran to the bathroom again, This time it came out the other end. On the way home I downed a bottle of water. When I got home it came out both ends at once. I went to bed. DH brought me some eggs, they came up, drank some water that came up. At 4 told DH I had to do something and would he run by the store and get me some slim fast and Gatoraid. An hour after he got them I had to pee. A good sign, except when I got off the toilet the bathroom started spinning faster and faster. At 6 I had drank a slim fast and a glass of gatoraid and it seamed to be staying down. So got out of bed. It is almost 7 so far so good. But no one is ever telling me no water for 10 hours again.
I have 1200 steps for the day and no activity.
If I have to go though this again, when I get home I'm downing 32 ozs of water and am drinking water as needed al night. I'll stop about 4 hours before the test.

I'm 60 and decided it was time I had a well woman exam. Silly me.
I went to the Dr. No surprise she sent me for a mammogram, bone density and a colonoscopy. Ok the mammogram I expected, I know I really should have the colonoscopy, a bone density ok. But then there where the 2 ultra sounds. Whats with them, but they said my Dr. ordered them. I asked the Dr yes she ordered one but not the other.
I ent to the Dr about the colonoscopy, he doesn't like that I've been on iron for 40 years and thinks I either have a slow internal bleed no one knows about or I have a build up of some crazy thing from excess iron that might be keeping my organs from working right. So not only should they check my lower half, but my upper half too.
The Dr just called, the results of the ultra sound she didn't order is in. I have gall stones that aren't bothering me and I have a cyst on my kidney, that isn't bothering me either.The Dr was going to tell insurance she was looking for cyst on my liver, but it is fine. Now we have added 3 more test. They wanted to run test to find out why I lost so much weight. I told them I knew exactly why I lost so much weight and how I did it and there was no reason to run any more test.
The test that were going to take up my vacation are now going to take up another week when I should be working or I'm not going to have the money to pay for all this. I am tired if being poked and prodded.
In case you are wondering. Yes I have insurance. Wal-Mart has the lowest amount of insurance they can have and be within the law. I have a $2500 deductible, with Wal-Mart helping with the first $600, I've gone over my $600 and am nowhere near my $2500. I sure didn't expect all this.

Mom lives where one road makes a t into another road. With the snow and ice in the Ozark she is averaging 4 cars a day in the ditch in front of her house. The other day she recognized the driver as having been at her church several times and invited her in.
Mom was just getting ready to sit down to a bowl of vegetable soup and a cup of coffee so invited the lady to do the same.
Coffee is bad for you I'll have herd tea.
Would you like some soup?
Only if it is vegan, I don't eat anything with meat in it.
Yes it is vegan
And it can't have any vegetables that have high sugar content.
Maybe you would prefer a vegetable sandwich and a fruit salad
I only eat bread that is gluten free and never eat fruit, they have too much sugar.
are you diabetic?
No. sugar isn't good for you And by the way electric magnetic fields are bad for you so will you make sure all, computers, TVs, microwaves, tablets, e readers, and radios are turned completely off.
Mom says she was never so glad to see a tow truck
