Long Week...
Thursday, September 10, 2009      3 comments

It's been a long week, eventhough I guess "technically" it's only a four day week. I had to take Gran back to the doctor to check on the UTI that she had. The antibiotic cleared up one bacteria but not the other. So, more meds. That was Wed... Read more

Here's my story: It was Labor Day weekend, but it was a Sunday like any other. I was with my family and nephews sitting on the "almost" front pew when I saw our "pew mates" come in. It's a man in his 50's with his mom. But following him was... Read more
"Living with my pain"....
Thursday, September 03, 2009      4 comments

Thank you all for your concerns over what the gastroenterologist said about "living with my pain." I totally agree with you. I don't ever agree to "just let it go." There has to be someone who can give me an answer. I actually am planning o... Read more
Tests results....

It is so sad. A lady that I knew growing up because of my being in 4-H lost her only daughter in a one car accident. She wasn't wearing her seatbelt. She was only 35 and engaged to be married. I don't know why she was out so late, but she w... Read more

Okay, I have to say I love my Wii; and I don't think it is something that I will get tired of playing. I did my Wii Fitness age (61, ugh!) this morning. Then, I played tennis, bowling, and golf. Now, I don't bowl in "real life" but after playing... Read more

Monday, August 24, 2009      8 comments

I've wanted a Wii for quite a while. My twin sis bought one used nearly a year ago, I guess it was, and I love playing while at her house. But, it is hard to get play time in with four kids standing in line. Since I won $127 at the fair, ... Read more

Monday, August 10, 2009      4 comments

Well, I went in to see the gastro-doc and saw his nurse practioner (which was fine with me). She said with my family history of mom and granddad both having colon cancer that a colonoscopy was definitely in order. However, they also want to do a... Read more

Thursday, August 06, 2009      3 comments

Well, the pain in my side is still there. The doctor is baffled. The pain is like I have gallbladder problems... but I have no gallbladder. The CT that I had done last week showed nothing but a small naval hernia. It was supposed to be fixe... Read more

Gran had a CT of her carotid arteries on Monday. We saw the surgeon today. The test results showed less than 50% blockage in each artery. It said it was a calcification. That is the problem she has with her heart valve that causes her murmur. ... Read more
