Busy Day

Saturday, November 20, 2010

It has been a busy day and I am very tired.
Brianna is home but wasn't feeling so great a short while ago. Angel is exhausted and very overwhelmed with all she has to get done. Hopefully she will get some good rest.
We made a trip to wal-Mart and got groceries.Grocery shopping and errand day is always tiring.
Just wanted to stop by and say hello. I will try to blog better tomorrow.
We are watching Sex in the City 2 and Bill is very bored. emoticon So far it is boring to me too but i won't admit it. emoticon
Enjoy your weekend

    Hi Ms. Eleni,
I've had a very nice last couple days, immediate scare is over with husband and he's following diet much better than I thought he would. He's not bringing the junk stuff in the house, I just hope he stays good. He feels much better except wakes everyday with headache. He plugs into the oxygen each day for a period of time. He goes tomorrow to see pulmologist. Other than that, everyone else is good. I finally got my haircut the other day. It looks good, I like it better short plus easy to take care of. I'm doing good this week on diet, I hope I lose a couple. Therapy should be over in the next few weeks but may have to go in for something else; waiting for test results to come back. I always say the 50's is about little procedures. Oh well, such is life. Anyway, yes, your grandkids do keep you in worry mode. Are you going visiting Thanksgiving or cooking at home? I'm cooking at home this year, we usually go to my youngest brother's but will see everyone there at Christmas. Take care, love the pics and yes, Roxy is a hambone and sooo cute!!

    Good to hear Brianna is home. I'm sure she will rest more comfortably now. Hopefully things will settle down and everybody will be able to rest.

Poor Bill! I wouldn't be able to suffer through that movie. :)

    So happy Brianna is back in her home. She is an angel. I hope she recovers very soon.
I've managed to live this long never seeing a single thing to do with Sex and the City. emoticonI hope I can keep it up! I think it's because the show sounds like it has a lot of shopping in it!

Well Brianna has not been having a good day. She broke out in blotches this afternoon from being allergic to one of meds.Then heart went into tacacrdia.Heart rate hit 125. probably from reaction. But she is better now. Her and Angel are both very tire.Every time they try to sleep something happens. Brianna was also getting upset about missing school.Angel asked me to talk to her so I did. I told her she can get caught up when she is well.She is fine now with that.Poor thing wants to go home so bad but Angel and I are both helping her to understand she needs to stay there. She will be fine.Takes time for meds to work.
So it has been a somewhat stressful day.
Then I just found out on facebook that my grand daughter Felicia is moving to Texas. I am not a happy camper that neither her or her mother told me. Actually I am very pi-sed off.
I have tried to take a nap twice today and no luck. Bill and Roxy are all zonked out. Somehow that just doesn't strike me as fair.
Well even with all that is going on I still managed to cook a big pot of soup. I have to go bag it up.I ran out and have been using my emergency cans which have more calories and salt.So now I am set for the next week.
They brought me out a new mask to try on c-pap. I tried to test it out earlier but that didn't work. I can tell that I can breathe better but don't know if I will be able to stay the apparatus.Tonight will be the test.I still have the soft pillows.My doc told them tonot take them.
Ok I need to get all that soup bagged.Hope you have a good weekend.

I don't blame you for being upset about finding out about your grand daughter moving through FB. If she was worried about it, she could've at least picked up the phone. You can't hurt her through the phone.

Hopefully tomorrow is a better day.

You need a break, some nice normal weeks without anyone getting sick, or mouthy just boring day to day normal activities. This has been quite a year for you so just maybe next year will be peaceful, serene and even keeled. Lets hope.
Sure hope your new mask works, you need some sleep, well restful sleep. Enjoy this beautiful weekend. Stay well.

Been a long day.
Right now waiting to see what test show for Brianna. Ok She has a very severe kidney infection.They want to keep her overnight so they can give her antibiotics by iv.Fever is now down so that is good. She got upset when they told her that her mother couldn't stay.That nurse didn't realize she is a minor.The good nurse as Angel called her fixed it.She got her a private room and Angel will stay with her. She should be fine.
Ok what's next. Oh the friend who offered to doggie sit came by to see Roxy.She likes Roxy and is looking forward to keeping it. Roxy was very good when she was here. I feel better about leaving Roxy with Gina instead of at vets.
Gina also brought us a healthy version of banana bread.I had to eat mine tonight as Bill kept drooling over it. I was saving my piece for breakfast.Bill wolfed his down.
Ok next. My doctors office called to get me a new mask for c-pap.But when place called me they said they were bringing a full mask.I said that was wrong but they wouldn't change it without a script from doc. Then Lynette my buddy nurse called to tell me a couple of things and I told her about full mask.So she called them back to just get a nose mask. Hopefully I can do better with it.Bill is doing well with his.
Now to a short Bill story. Lynette called for 2 reasons.One was to let me know she had a script for Bill ready. Then she wanted to tell me that she was reviewing patients files and looking over their first visits. She was looking at Bill's and when she saw what he had put down as reason for visit she had to call me.
Bill's answer for why he was there was ----- Are you ready for this.
He put down-- A Nagging Wife. I had forgotten he did it.She thought it was too funny. I asked if that didn't sound like us. It was funny when he did it and is still funny.
ok I am doing better with eating but need much more improvement.But I am working on it.
Have a good day tomorrow

    Bill's reason for going to the doctor is hysterical!! Sounds like something my Jason would say. emoticon

I love banana bread. Sam has been making pumpkin bread and it's hard to stay out if it. The last batch she added chocolate chips. It's yummy!

I feel bad for Brianna. Being in the hospital isn't fun and can be scary, especially at that age. They don't have her in pediatric ward since she's under age? At least Angel was able to stay with her. I hope she's feeling better today.

  I used to get kidney infections when I was Brianna's age and antibiotics always did the trick. I hope she feels better real soon.
Bill sounds just like my husband........When Ken filled out his new-patient paper, he wrote next to SEX..........Yes!
We can't leave our Australian Terrier with anyone but our son when we go away. When he got married, the wedding was in North Dakota and Tyke had to go to a kennel. We stayed the minimum amount of time required and when we picked Tyke up, the man who owned the kennel said that he just laid around and hardly ate a thing. It is probably good to get Roxy used to staying with more than one person if you and Bill travel or go a lot. mentioned having did you get rid of it? And, how long did it last?
Have a great weekend. emoticon

Saw the doc today and nothing much new. He is going to get a different mask for my c-pap.He may have my company take mine back and get one from Bills.
He checked my ICD to see what my heart was doing when I had my spell.Nothing was going on.He said it was either because of the potassium I take or hypoglycimia. He didn't seem too concerned.
I told him about his black snake that was outside his office.He knew it but liked it as it keeps the mouse away. I hope it doesn't scare anyone.This is 3rd time I have seen it.
Got my protine check and my blood was on water side.I wasn't surprised as I got a small scratch and it took forever to stop bleeding. It happens.I go back in 2 weeks to get it checked.
Roxy went to her first class. She decided to embarrass us again and took a big poop on floor of store. I just laughed. They gave Bill a bag to clean it up. Other than that she was good. The guy tried to get her to lay down and she wasn't interested.She sat good but we have to work on the down.The other dog in her class is a 4 month old puppy. So we will be working on trying to get her to lay down.She has been sitting for me and finally sat for Bill tonight.
Little Haven came to meet Roxie.

And here is a butterfly that stopped by today

And I found this one plant out front.First time I have ever seen any kind of blossoms on it.

Hope you all had a good day.

    Do you have a certain word or phrase you tell Roxy when she's outside to go to the bathroom? If so, then try to get her to go before going inside the store. Whenever I take the dogs in the car I always take them outside and tell them to go. She should out grow that, hopefully sooner than later. The pet store is used to it.

If my doctor's office had a snake visible, I would turn and run the other way. I don't think I could survive in Florida. LOL

I love the butterfly. It's been a while since you've posted a picture.

I hope you're having a great day!

I have done much better with my eating today.Yesterday was a disaster.
I also got some exercises done.
Roxy was a bad girl. I don't really know what to do when she is bad.She is so like a kid.If I don't see or hear her I better check. I don't know how she got it but it must have been on floor of my art room.But when I walked into the living room there was one of my colored pencils chewed to pieces. First I was worried about her eating wood splinters.Then aggravated as it was an expensive pencil.She had pulled a paper towel out of trash and shredded it.I was not happy with her.
Maybe she was mad at Bill for what he did this morning. He usually lets her out around 6 before he goes to work to potty.Then she comes back to her bed til I get up.Around 7 I thought I heard her bark.I got up to see and low and behold she was not in house.Silly Bill forgot she was outside and left for work.She was scratching at door wanting back in. She was very happy to get back in house.
Her class has been changed to tomorrow.
I am watching the Biggest loser.I really don't like to see a lot of crying.
I am taping DWTS but I always flip over at the end to see who goes home. I hope it is Palin as I want the other 3 to go to the finals.
Well Nothing exciting here.It was a beautiful day again today emoticon

    Roxy could've been upset about being left outside. My Golden still gets into trouble every now and again. If I leave kleenex in any open garbage he will shred it. If I leave a box on my nightstand, he will shred all that kleenex too. They also love getting into the cat box. Nasty boys!! emoticon Well, at least you were home to let her in. Our Golden won't bark or scratch to come in so I've forgotten about him before. Our other dog will bark & scratch. You'd think the Golden would learn, especially in the cold weather.

I have at least 2 weeks of Biggest Loser to watch. I didn't see DWTS but I heard this morning who was voted off. What a shocker!! Watch, Bristol takes it all!! I'm sure they're doing it for ratings.

    I don't know how old Roxy is, but both Gracie and Ralphy chewed up tissue paper when they were puppies. They chewed everything when they were puppies, and then graduated to just paper as they got older. Gracie finally quit, but she's 8 now. Ralphy is two, and he still chews up tissues and napkins if he finds them. He's a lot better than he was. Toilet tissue is a great treat too - Ralph unrolled an entire roll one time, but we learned to keep the loose end out of sight.
