Felt a little better today.
My sister Joanne brought lunch to house and visited for awhile. It was nice.
Our grand daughter Alyssa had gall bladder operation today and is doing well. She was only at hospital for a few hours. She is hurting but should feel better tomorrow.
Found out a good way to make a slushie at home. I got the idea a little while ago. I broke some popsicles into small pieces and put in microwave and wa laa. Slushie just like 7-11. emoticon
Landon was in a play and here are some pics

Got more cards today. They do brighten up the living room.

  Hi Eleni........
It is always good news when I read that you are feeling a bit better. I hope that it continued into today. I'm sure it was nice to have lunch with your sister too.
Loved the pictures of Landon. He looks like he settled into his new school just fine. Little ones usually do adjust fairly quickly.
I hope you are enjoying your Saturday. I have to stop Sparking soon and make some more homemade dog food for Tyke. If it turns out good, maybe we will have it for supper........... I'm OK. Really.

Saw Doc Today

Thursday, December 13, 2012

We both saw heart doc today. Bill is doing great. He is increasing one of my meds to try to get heart to pump better.We tried it once before and blood pressure went too low.So I am suppose to just try it for 2 days and see what blood pressure does. I know what it will do but I will try it.Will have to keep track of blood pressure. Also giving me another med for yeast infection on back of knees.Also said if fluid gets that bad again to call. He can now send a nurse to house and use a diuretic intraveneous for 24 hours if necessery.
Sister Joanne is bringing over lunch tomorrow.
My good friend Rozie from Australia sent me a cute decoration for my tree. I put it on my special small tree. This is a small tree that was my mothers.

Roxy with special bone Bill got her.Biggest one she has had. Needless to say she loved it.

Hope you had a good day

    I like your tree - we had one like it for our trailer. I went for my annual physical today, and the only new thing was a pneumonia shot - the old one had worn out.

I hope your new meds do work.

  Hi Eleni.........
I pray that the new medication will do a good job for you this time. It is also encouraging that a nurse can come right to you to relieve the fluid situation.

I hope that you have a good weekend. I have to leave in a few minutes for the hospital to get my yearly mammogram and a blood test to see if my liver enzymes have improved any. Keep your fingers crossed on both.

Take care..........

    I hope that the new meds work. Meds are improving daily, it is big business and they are constantly developing new drugs, so if one didn't work, hopefully another will. Also good that you qualify for in-home nurse care if necessary.

That is a big bone for Roxy! I think she wore herself out chewing! lol

What a thought good friend to send you a special Tree Ornament. Roxy is just so cute and obviously the bone was a big hit. He sure rules the house--LOL! as our dog Snoopy does. Got to love them as they add so much pleasure (and work) to our lives. Wishing you a good day and upcoming weekend. Take good care.

  Hi Eleni.......
Your Hibiscus blooms are beautiful. We have a pink Pie-Plate Hibiscus perenniel that goes crazy with blooms on the south side of our house. I used to have a huge Christmas cactus but it died just before we moved to this house. They are gorgeous when in bloom.
Must close and get back to my Christmas cards.
Take care........

Yesterday was my worse day in a long time. I even had Bill come home from work early. We both see doc thursday but not anything he can do for me. So I just try to make it thru the bad days and enjoy the not so bad days.
Angel and Brianna came together today.Went well til last few minutes. Angel stormed out door. Brianna had told her earlier how she felt about what her mom was doing. Angel can't accept the truth.I feel sorry for Brianna.
I received a very sweet gift from Derinda and she even sent Brianna a pen with her name on it.
I put the plaque right over door in dining room where it can be seen really well.

I made Bill some special cookies and some pretzels for me.

A few more cards came

    Sorry that you are going through a bad spell. Angel is a sweet person, but right now none of you need the stress from her bad choices. It is too bad that she can't get counseling to increase her sense of self-worth in order to make better choices. Here there are some good Christian Counseling services that are low cost to free.

Hope today is a better day. The cookies and pretzels look delicious!

  Hi Eleni........
I am so glad that Bill will be home full-time with you soon. That will make the really bad days somewhat better to have him close by. I pray for you every day and hope that you get some relief. I will also include Angel and Brianna in my prayers. It sounds like they could use some help too.
I agree with your plaque message 100%. Laughter is often the very best medicine for all of us.

Blogging Early Before I Take My Nap

Sunday, December 09, 2012

Watching another Christmas movie. I have seen it before but it is cute. A lot of new ones this year
Bill is on floor trying to lay tile and Roxy keeps trying to lick him in face.
Here are some Roxy and Bill pics. She isn't suppose to lay on couch. The one pic is her giving Bill a hug. She won't do it to me.Only him. And her king of the mountain pose.

Floor before and some after

Thanks for cards. Here are just a few. Will be getting many more

And little stinker Abigail.

  Hi Eleni........
Roxy is definitely Queen of her domain. I love the hug and how she is guarding Bill. A dog gives such unconditional love. Nothing compares to it.
Bill is doing such a great job with the tile. I envy him being to get on his knees like that!!! That is how I used to garden until I had my knee replaced. Now it hurts to get into that position.
It looks like little Abigail is well trained to talk on a cell phone. Elizabeth is too!!! She gets cuter every day.
Please take care of yourself.
