Feeling easier to walk erect like a real human this morning, but still kind of dizzy. Letting DD drive, trying to take it easy today,,, will be finishing putting our little tree up and decorating it, just pay some bills and start my Christmas cards.
Since the meds make me drowsy, I cannot really get any one long task completed. very discouraging. I did call my work place and tell Tommy that I need the time off from work for the colonoscopy. Jingle bells t me. SO glad I paid attention to all of the people on m diabetes team when they had their procedures.
It is so darned easy now, not a big deal for prep...

    I have one beginning of next year. I hope that prep is changed and easy.

Happy the meds are helping some now but as soon as it gets right in to the system you should feel better in a few days. I hope you wear a hat or ear muffs, if I get cold ears there will usually be a problem HUGS Pat in Maine.

got rushed into doc office yesterday before they closed. Turns out I now have a middle ear infection,, both drums bulging out to beat the band,, Doc kept asking me if I felt funny on either side of ears.. any pain or pressure.. ? Ordered antibiotic and antivert to kep me on an even keel so to speak.. Now, my doc knows me well enough that he waited to see what else was wrong.. I hate to bother the doctor, so i always wait until I am half dead before I call them.. this trip was no different. I told him about my neuropathy, I get a whole sheet of labs to be drawn right away..

I mentioned that I had three colonoscopies in 19773 and 1974 with bleeding polyp removal, so after he almost faints from shock, he picks up the phone and orders one for me. He tells me I should have had one at least when I was fifty years old. Oops, I say, I FORGOT... right!! He looks at me over the top of his glasses, tells me it is his fault, apologizes and says it will never happen again.. we are the same age, so he knows that I should not have gotten away with it this long..

My heart and lungs sound normal, so I get out of there just be the skin of my teeth without having to have major surgery or a severe scolding... he is not like that,,

My last trip there was last spring,, in fact, only three of teh employees there even knew me.. I am that scarce..
Today I pre-registered with internists office and hospital, took my meds, then DD and I dropped her car off to car hospital out in the boonies to get her electrical stuff repaired.. Her guy will be sleeping in Mike's workshop over the weekend...

I still feel dizzy, drowsy, but i did have to call in sick this morning due to losing my cookies in teh middle of the night and being dizzy enough to almost fall..

I am hoping that a couple more doses of the antibiotic and the antivert, will help me over the weekend. My scope is scheduled for week after next.. a week before Christmas.. an early present..

I am very tired and still nauseated sometimes, but glad I got the full service treatment yesterday,, got to keep the old machine tuned up as best I can..

    Both ears no wonder you had no balance it is bad enough with just one.

Hope it gets to feeling better soon with the meds but remember to take the whole deal.

    LINDA, Have they ruled out POSITIONAL VERTIGO, I went to an Ear, Nose and Throat office and they have a Vertigo Specialist. I hope they can rule it out or treat it. Mine has been gone since they treated it with a session of Therapy. I was walking in to walls when I went through doorways, I would look at the ceiling as I was lying down and the room was spinning and I was also seeing double sometimes. I hope they find the cause of this. HUGS Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Brr. Wednesday

Well, back to bsuiness Michigan today. Cold air, but no snow, sun for the day so far, that is important to me, so see the sky, not the gray overcast.. fell asleep with my head on keyboard just now, ,for two hours.. ,, darned Rx meds.

I am having a brush with incompetence each day this week. It was with CVS caremark for my mailed Rx meds Monday, got that straighened out afte the fourth phone call to them. We will see.
Yesterday was with teh water company. Meter reader walked right past my twelve-foot wide gate in my chain link fence and did not go in my back yard to read my meter. He put a post card on my door for ME to read it , telling staff at the office that he tried the locked gate but could not get in. This is a two-door gate that dump trucks drive through, it has been completely wide open since August! Truth be told, the guy could have walked right up to the fence at the ohter end of the house and read teh meter THROUGH THE FENCE..It is about two feet from the fence under DD bedroom window. He had to walk right past it to get to the neighbors house, which, by the way, has their meter in the exact same place on their house and tehir gate was CLOSED!!!!
So I call teh office, tell them this new guy needs better glasses(I saw him, he has glasses on!)

Okay, now I hav edrugs supposedly being shipped to me again, hoping the meter reader can see a tewlve foot space in a fence in three months..
I got my mail, got teh gas/electric bill form Consumers Energy.. they cahreged me late charges..........
I pay my bill the day it arrives, due to having to pay mom's bills too.. they are due at teh same time, so I mail both in same envelope. Somebody messed up in the office last mont, I called, get it all straightened up last month, allegedly..
I just called office again, explain the whole shebang again,, she again deducted late charges.. we will see..
I It i s only Wednesday, so I have no more meters on my house, no more meds to come, I will wait and see what the mail brings.

Other than that, it was great day!! Good luck reading this, spell check is not working on sparks today on anything I have written..sorry

Yet another day of warm air, no wind, no sun, just overcast grey sky,, okay with me, utilities are low and no shoveling snow yet!!
Bones and muscles ar every achy today, stiff.. we are due for something to happen in the sky for me to feel this way.. It is December 4 and I did not even wear a coat or long sleeves today!! I feel so tropical,,
Five years ago today, my friend Karen and I were screaming and yelling on Expedition Everest at Disneyworld. 85 degrees, wearing shorts, sunscreen, shades.. time to plan to go back,,

    Hi LINDA, we have the fog today, It is feeling mild but its only 42. I guess my fleece lined jeans are keeping me warm.
I keep thinking I would go to somewhere warm but I like the slow pace here. Hugs take care, hope the aches go away very soon.

HUGS some more--Pat emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
