I have recovered fairly well from my last surgery, just a few twinges left and some Dermabond (surgical glue) still sticking to me. The checkup for the kitty went well, since the vet found no evidence of cancer in her lungs. Jadee Kreuger, the l... Read more
Surgery? -- yet again
I have been told I have had a lot of surgeries in my life. Yet there is a little girl named Jadee, who at the age of 8, has already had 24 surgeries since this July due to a staph infection in her leg and a septic embolism. Presently her doctors... Read more
Faithful: in Memoriam
When I first met Faithful, he belonged to a friend. She was having great trouble with his house training. He was still a puppy but was growing very quickly. She said he was part Black Lab and part Corgi. (I could see the Lab, but not the Corgi –... Read more
Today I saw my surgeon to discuss what to do about the failed Mediport. He asked some questions about what happened and then said probably the best thing would be to install another port on the other side, but with radiologic assist. Since my lo... Read more
I will take this in order. First thing, some of y'all reminded me to change the numbers on my bank accounts, and I did, so that is done.
Second, evidently my daughter-in- law attempted to call me at 1 AM today, but I slept through the ringing.... Read more
This past week seems to have been busy -- and somewhat amusing -- and somewhat challenging.
A few days ago, my oldest son Jason called to tell me the latest adventures with a puppy he rescued that had been abandoned near the place where he ... Read more
The Mediport Installation +
Yesterday, my daughter took me to our local hospital for my Mediport installation. She had decided she better go to work during the procedure, so we ended up leaving Mercy at home with a pillow on the floor, her food and water and a potty pad.

I had fun writing this from the perspective of another species. I tend to empathize (feel with) God's created critters. Can you put yourself into another's ssskin?
Of course, I had heard of them before. They are made in the image of G... Read more
A Slight Pause and then Busy!
Today was partially more relaxed than usual for a Friday and partially busy. My chore worker called and said that her baby sitter had not arrived, so she couldn't come but would come on a day next week that she hadn't been scheduled. That will w... Read more
The Plan (of Care)
I have told parts of this on various message threads. For those of you who have your eyes cross about medical things -- well, this may make your eyes cross.
When I saw my gastroenterologist yesterday, we discussed the various types of treat... Read more
A Dream and Some Memories
Last night I had a dream -- one of those dreams with lots of detail (which I don't remember all). I dreamed that I seemed to be returning to a house in which I had lived many years ago -- yet I don't remember any specific house like this. I went... Read more
Where, oh, where
My youngest daughter Jessica, ever since she heard that my surgery was to be delayed, has disappeared. Well, actually, I know where she is -- over at my oldest daughter's house. I live too far out in the country, and she gets "bored" (and of cou... Read more
More Mixed Feelings
Yesterday my daughter Jessica and I were discussing what she plans to do, now that I am not going to have surgery right away. She has decided to apply for (and hopefully get) a job in Olympia. She has already had a lead on an open job, which wou... Read more
O Lord, You're Beautiful
Keith Green's music came at a time of some upheaval in my family. We listened, and we sobbed at times, and we looked to Jesus. Then came Keith Green's sudden death, and we felt bereft of a good influence.
Originally I had records of Keith G... Read more
Focus on Jesus
I am sure that those of you who are parents have experienced your adult "children" coming to you to pour out their hearts. Each one of my six children has done that at one time or another. My oldest has had a lot of heartache lately.
When thos... Read more
