Fun Birthday party, I ate cake

Monday, September 20, 2010

I planned on having some of Isaac's birthday cake and I did. It was a fun party, mostly adults at first but then two 3 years old, his cousins came and they played frisbe and then bowling. We'd eaten cold cuts, cheese, and crackers and had pop. I had water. Then they asked Isaac if he wanted to open presents or have cake and he wanted to open presents. After he opened the batmobile toy he wanted to stop and play with it but he kept opening. His Uncle Jordan was pretty pleased with himself for getting the best present.

I almost lost this. I had a book on the edge and it fell against the escape button and it kept blacking out the screen and saying no signal. It seems to be ok now.

Another Vikings loss. Of a very winable game. I sure hope the offense gets it together soon.

    As long as the cake tasted good, that's all that matters.

Neil might go to Isaac's BD birthday party

Sunday, September 19, 2010

I just read on Facebook and Neil's caring bridge that they removed the bandages today and his right leg is healing fine by itself. The left that got the graft is taking and he's doing well. He gets to go home in 2 days but will have to come back every 5-6 days to be checked, etc. It sounds like he might be able to go to Isaac's 3rd birthday party this afternoon.

I'm watching the Vikings play Miami and it's discouraging. We didn't score at all in the first half. We got intercepted on the one yard line. Then Favre got the ball knocked out in their end zone and Miami recovered so that was a touchdown for them. We won all our home games last year but we haven't even been ahead yet this game.

    So wonderful to read that Neil is healing so well.
I didn't even watch the end of the game. I went outside.....

Isaac has 3rd birthday party tomorrow

Saturday, September 18, 2010

They are having a 3rd birthday party for Isaac tomorrow. He won't be 3 until the 25th but Rachel thought maybe tomorrow Gail or even Neil could come because they'd still be in town. She thought they might have gone back to the farm by next week. I'm sure Neil is getting better every day but they aren't even letting him out of bed and tomorrow is the first day they will be taking any bandages off the grafted leg and not all just the top. After a bath every day and cleaning up the burn this one has been on since Tuesday. I'm not sure when they take the bandages completely off to check how the graft and donor area are coming. I'll have to eat cake. LOL.

Morgan had vet appointment

Friday, September 17, 2010

I got a card in July saying Morgan needed to come in for her comprehensive checkup but didn't get around to it until today. Gail dropped her off this morning on her way to work and Dawn took me over to pick her up when she came. I sure did miss her. Every time I moved from one room to the other I expected to see her, when the phone rang I started to say it's your turn Morgan, not that she ever answers. It's just something we do. I knew she had mega mats. I've been trying to brush her but they got really out of control the 4 days I was gone in August and again last weekend. Evidently she licks herself when she's nervous. She sure has been licking, licking since she got home. Trying to make new mats. LOL. When the vet called to report on here, she was fine in all areas but too many mats. It ended with my saying so ahead and sedate her and do all over. I didn't make her go without food or water last night so I hope she didn't get nausaus. They send home a sheet on obesity. She weighs 13.4 and weighed 12.2 last time. They marked overweight not obese. I'll bet she probably lost a bunch of weight after being shaved.

    Yup, bet Morgan is a bit lighter after yhe shaving. I know that out sheltie seems lighter after being to the groomers, and gets clipped( or maybe I'm being wishful)----NA, SHE'S LIGHTER ON THE WEIGHT.

Dr appointment and chorus concert today

Thursday, September 16, 2010

Bailey took me to the Dr this morning for a drug recheck. I've quit all diabetes and high blood pressure medication and only take half a tablet for cholesterol and having no problems. Got a flu shot. They have a more powerful one for those over 65 but won't be available until the end of the month. I didn't want to wait and come back again so got what they had even though 71 is over 65. No blood tests today. First time in a long time. I had so many last time, 11 vials I think. He's not concerned about my high vitamin B6. Especially since I quit taking one of the things that had like 200% daily recommended amount. He said see you in 6 months when I left which is longer than usual. It's been anywhere from 3-4 months for a diabetic check usually. Bailey didn't feel well so we didn't go out for lunch.

We had a chorus concert today at a senior retirement center I think it was. It got kind of hot and stuffy and we didn't sing the last song. There wasn't much room so I tried standing the whole time but leaned against the wall. Usually I've been sitting on a chair or have one available if I get tired. I was glad we quit when we did because I was getting dizzy. Didn't stop me from eating a piece of chocolate cake though. There were birthdays being celebrated and there was both a white and a chocolate cake. I of course had chocolate and it was delicious.
