Better Day

Wednesday, September 19, 2012

Today has been a better day. And it was very nice that my sister Joanne brought over lunch and visited for awhile. I can't go to her house as it is too hard for me to get up front steps. So it was nice to have some time together.
I still have fluid but it is better. Feet still swollen but scale down which means lungs are better.
Supper will be leftover roast meat and some mashed potatoes. Can't get much easier.
Got 3 new books in the mail.
Frozen Heat,Black Water Rising,The Cutting Season and another Cat Who for Bill. We played upwords the other night and he beat me which is rare. I think all the reading is helping.
Here is a pic of Brianna and little Haven that use to visit me. We tease Brianna about her hair all the time.

    Brianna is a beauty. Josh was always smitten with girls that did wild things to their hair. He would have thought that Brianna is gorgeous! He always loved the more exotic looking girls to...so your girls definitely would have caught a second or third glance!

I'm happy that you were feeling a little better today...just remember how much we all love and adore you...so take REALLY good care of yourself...okay...okay...hugs! emoticon emoticon

  Hi Eleni........
I am glad to hear that the fluid is leaving...........wish it would leave for good so that you wouldn't have to deal with it.
Brianna would be beautiful with NO hair. And that little Haven is gorgeous too. I shopped for a baby gift yesterday and ran into a wonderful sale at Boston Store. I found several outfits for Nola and a couple of nice dresses that can also be worn as a long shirt with leggings for Elizabeth. I was going to keep them as Christmas gifts, but I don't think I will be able to wait that long.
Ken is taking Miki (our Cairn Terrier) to the vet tomorrow. Something is wrong with his left back leg and we both have the sickening feeling that it may be the same thing that was wrong with Tyke and if it is, it would require surgery. We don't need the expense, but he is a member of the family so we will do what we have to do. Always something!!!!!
Must close. Survivor starts in just a few minutes AND it is starting to thunder and lightening. emoticon emoticon

Not much going on.Still having a 8 to 9# swing because of fluid. Just have to wait it out.Sometimes it does it for several days and then will settle down.
I always say it is my heart showing me who is boss and it isn't me.
Brianna is now doing cleaning for us instead of her Mom. She always does little extra stuff. I know we aren't suppose to have favorites but it is hard sometimes not to.
Bill picked up the movie.War of the World which is an old movie. I really never wanted to see it. But I was surprised as it was pretty good.Kept us on the edge of our seats.
Here are a few pics I took out the window today. My baby girl and some plants etc.All stuff you have seen before








A couple of where ever


Bill is on way home and the roast that has been in oven for 3 hours smells awesome emoticon emoticon

  Hi Eleni........
Roxy is definitely Queen of her Domain!!!!! Miki is the same way. He lays in the yard as if he is the Lion King. He had no clue how small he really is........

I'll bet the hummers really like your red and purple flowers. They have been just crazy among the Cleome the past few days. Maybe they sense the cold front moving in and the rain coming with it.

I know what you mean about having favorites. It is just too hard not to. Whether it is a child or a grandchild or a brother or sister...........the one you favor has a piece of your soul and you just cant help it.

The grand-daughters just left and both Ken and I are exhausted. Elizabeth is 5 and talks ALL OF THE TIME and Nola is 4 months old and evening is her fussy part of the day. I am always glad to see our son pull in the drive-way, but he really looked good tonight!!!!! The old adage about being able to "Hand them back" when the parents arrive is sooooooo true. We love them so much, but we are older and wear out faster than we used to!!!!!

I can smell your roast all the way up here in Wisconsin!!!!! We put a Rolled Rump Roast in the Crock Pot Saturday morning and let it slow cook for almost 10 hours. It melted in our mouths. I have NEVER had a roast that turned out that good. Yum!!!

Must close for now and crawl into my bedroom. I hope I make it to my bed........if not, there is always the rug. Later.........

  Hi Eleni.........
We just arrived home from our pontoon ride and supper with our youngest son. I told Ken about Bill losing his hearing aids and the warranty replacement and he asked if I would find out what brand he has. Ken was tested by Miracle Ear and they did a very good job.
Must close and get supper for the dogs..........

Not a Good Day

Saturday, September 15, 2012

Am feeling much better now but spent most of day in bed. Had a problem with fluid and when you get rid of 8+ pounds in a couple of hours it wipes you out.

This will be short but have to tell you what happened last night. Bill usually lets Roxy out around 6 am. He got up at 4:30 and she decided she wanted to potty too. He let her out and she usually goes and comes back in fast. Well he waited and called her and no Roxy. So he goes outside and sees her standing near feel good corner but refuses to come. So he goes out there and there is a big white dog laying there. Roxy was almost like she was standing guard protecting it. Bill had to carry her in house. Later Bill went out and dog was a sweet thing.Only place it could have come from was house in back. The two mean dogs next door are gone.He came back in and got lease and she got all excited like Roxy does when she knows she is going for a walk. She walked with Bill and went straight to her front door. Bill woke the people up at 7 but they were glad to get her back. She will do it again if they don't put something on top of fence.They did on part of fence but they will have to do it all the way.I am just glad it was friendly. maybe because it was female too.
I have a ton of pics I got off facebook and emails and others blogs. So I will share some more and hope they make you smile like they did me.
This first one is interesting because I saw a program about this and was just talking to Bill about it. There is a group of monks that have all these tigers they live with. Amazing.

Now just the cutesy stuff






I think this is a favorite

  Hi Eleni........
You must feel so much better after getting rid of that much fluid. My Dad used to have fluid removed too and was always so tired afterward.
Bill was brave to approach the white dog. Did he recognize it as the neighbor's dog right away? Roxy is so quiet.........my two terriers would have barked like crazy and had everyone awake!!!!! I don't know if it is the breed or because there are two of them and they feel more confident, but there is NOTHING that they won't go after. We have Coyotes in our area. I can sometimes hear them at night so I go out with the dogs and the minute they are finished, I scoot them back in the house. I can't trust them alone because they have no fear!!!!!
I hope that tomorrow is a better day for you.

    Hi Eleni, I glad you're feeling better that has to be so hard to go through and feel awful in the process. Great rescue story about Roxy, Bill and the neighbor's dog. My dog would have gone "bananas" with another dog in his yard. Even at 4:30 am he would have barked his head off and woke up us and the whole neighborhood--LOL! Keep feeling better and tomorrow should be a good day for you.

Hugs,

Jill
