The record-breaking temperature on Sunday was 110! Yesterday was 103, and today is to be 100. I'm from the Seattle area and not used to this heat, and am profoundly grateful for central air-conditioning. I will stay home today and work on emptying boxes and finding a place for everything. I am becoming a true Boise-ite -- adapting to whatever comes along. Wildfires have caused a lot of damage--many families have lost everything. I am truly blessed to be here in this place.

Good morning we are on a mini heat wave in England ! I shall stay home for now, Mauruce had his toe redressed by a nurse, she says it's healing well. He has to go again in Fruday for it to be checked again,
He is happy this morning. He loves going out by car . Our son. has to go out this morning so suggested M went with him. He will love that , gives me a few hours break too.

That was lovely news re the new great grand child. We have another one due early August , it's a boy.
Have a good day, .Ree

Good that Maurice and Irene are feeling better. And Pat, when do you find out about your "bump"?
Marsha, I hope you're all recovered by now. Being under the weather is not fun.
Exciting day in my house today...we have a new Great Grandson, born just this morning! Have no idea of when we'll get to meet him as he is in Nome, Alaska. Maybe on our way home to Hawaii this fall we can make a detour(!?) to meet him!! We are in Idaho for the summer.

No wonder DH Maurice didn't feel well. , Ree. Probably result of infected toe.
Hope that heals up fast now that the nail was removed!

My DH is happy now that doctor cut back on his dosage of Lasix was cut back. Too may trips to the John!

I am tired but happy to have accomplished so much today.
First did all my assigned PT exercises. Chair, and standing ones plus upper body stretches with bands, then purposeful walking -up to 10 minutes. .then stripped the bed and washed all the linens.. Did the dishes and cleaned kitchen-all while DD was off taking DH for his Dr appt.
It's rainy and overcast today. We Have to take Brooklyn, our little Shihtzu out between rains .

Hope every one is feeling great today!
Hugs, Pat

Been a medical week . My husband wasn't well I took him plus a water sample to the medical centre but that was ok, The doctor couldn't find a particular reason for him being unwell said maybe a hidden infection?
Then he had to go back to have a toe nail removed. His toe is padded and protected now, his foot is swollen so he can only wear soft slippers,
Looks like a few days at home , Enjoy your day. Ree

Pat, I had some bumps taken off my face just before Thanksgiving last year....I was a thing of beauty (not) by turkey dinner! Happens to a lot of people anymore. Hopefully your bump is nothing.
Irene and Marsha, I surely hope you feel better soon.
And so nice to see you HelenBru. Welcome!

I sure slept last night Pat. I went to bed at 6:30 and slept until 6:30 this morning. We had a gloomy day most of the day and a heavy shower with heavy winds. Then later it let up some then stopped.
I even took a nap. Can you imagine?

It is still sunny and beautiful here. But tomorrow promises to be different. Possible severe storms with high straight winds and even tornados possible. Guess we better batten down the hatches!!

You certainly have both sad and happy memories of your own father, Irene. But-What a blessing you were to him!!

DH read the sweet testimonials each daughter had sent. DD # one had received them all and printed them out. He read each one aloud as I recorded them. They each sent me wonderful testimonials too . We are both very touched! What wonderful memories we share!
They will all be here next week end - several flying in from afar- as the family again celebrates his BD. 91 this week. They have planned quite a BD bash again. Makes for a great family reunion as well!

DD # 3 and hubby are coming this evening to enjoy the pies that they picked up last evening at the Alumni Banquet but baked by our home church ladies. They had been frozen for us from the church bake sale.
We had a taste of the pecan one for lunch. still have to sample the cherry:) very tasty.

Hope you all have a good night sleeps!
Hugs, Pat

My father got angry with the pastor when I was young and quit going to church. He was very strict and gave my mom the silent treatment and paddled us kids very hard. I saw him slap my my mom once which scarred me toward men.
He would not let me date until I left home at around 20. One thing they did send us kids to church but I never did receive the Lord as my Savior. I was baptized in water and joined the church and was taught that was it.
I moved to Kansas City and found a church that taught Salvation. I received the Lord and from that day on I prayed the Lord would save all of my household before they died.
My father was angry because I was going to that kind of church. Mom talked back to him which she never did. She said "Well, she is different isn't she"?
Then I was ordained and dad and mom would drive to hear me preach. He was under conviction but didn't do anything. He even drove over 200 miles sometimes to hear me preach when I was the pastor of a church.
Then the news came! He had gone back to church and really got into it. He would do anything from teach the adult Bible class, superintendent of Sunday School, lead the singing, mow the lawn, etc.
He was a changed man. Praise the Lord.

Good morning to all. Have a busy day ahead so wanted to get on early (early for me).

Irene, I made all of Geo. Jr.'s baby clothes, blanket's, etc. Can't remember if I crocheted him a afghan or not, but made several out of flannel for him, diaper shirts, and long gowns. Brooks was in the Aleutian Islands and I was staying with my Mother and Father. Brooks got leave to come home to see him when he was 12 days old, but had to go back.

Ree, so glad that you have someone to talk to, and he is helping you, and you are helping him.

A beautiful sunny day here, I am feeling better this morning, and am going to Publix before the rains come in.

Hope everyone has a great day, Pat I hope you got rest last night from your long day yesterday.

Pat I have two hearing aids. One is broken but I do good with the one.
Glad your head ache is gone.

So nice that you can crochet for your little one, Marsha ! I never got beyond pot-holders myself:)!
The Non-Aspirin must have worked. Only up 2 times in night and must have gone right back to sleep.
I dead headed 4 long railing pots of blue pansies yesterday and tidied up my railing herb garden as well.
It is rainy and gloomy here today. Just did my first load of wash and the Breakfast dishes.
DD does most of the cooking but I do the cleanup.
I am waiting on a call from Ear Nose and Throat specialist for appointment. As follow up to yesterdays Audiologist visit to confirm I may need hearing Aides! Eh???
Hope Irene had a goodnight for a change!
Have a nice day all!
Pat

Marsha, I just eat, take my med and drink water and I have to go. Don't get there in time a lot of the times. I don't eat enough calories but what I do eat comes right out of me.
Joel was really good tonight.
I also like Charles Stanley's teachings.
Sorry about your back.
Glad you could take a nap. I took a two hour nap this afternoon to make up for the 5 hours I slept.
Thank you for your prayers.

Irene, I like Joel Osteen also. Sorry you had a rough night last night. It has to leave you very weak. When do you have it checked again, praying it is within range.

I took a nap this afternoon, just been trying to rest my back, it feels some better, but I can't do any bending and it starts all over again. I go back Tues for an adjustment.

Have a good evening, and everyone else also. I don't know where the weeks go.

Hugs and prayers to all.

Marsha I got our church service live on the computer this morning but I couldn't hear the pastor at first. Then when I could hear him I had tor run to the BR and when I got back it was over.
I will watch Joel Osteen this evening and another one that comes on either before or after him.
I watched Charles Stanley last evening.

Glad you enjoyed your service.

God bless.

Pat, I always tell my Great Granddaughter (avid softball player) whether you win or lose, you are a winner in my book. :)
Went to church this morning, and we had a guest Lady Pastor and she was real good.

Hope everyone has a great Sunday afternoon and evening. I am just going to rest my back. Geo. Jr. might be over tomorrow morning to mow and yard ward. Pat it is wonderful that your DH is able to keep up the yard. My late husband loved his flowers, and was always out in the yard working. Even when he would lose his balance he tried to pull weeds and I would find him on the ground and couldn't get up. I used to say to him, "what do you do out there for so long". Now, I know. :)

Here is a picture of Judy's cat that I am feeding while she is gone. She will be home tomorrow evening late.



Hope this works. :)

So glad both you and your DH had a nice time at the coast , Ree!
That is good that you have been able to taper off on your meds , Irene!
Yes, I know I am blessed to still have my dear 91 year old DH with me yet! He is still active and our full time gardener. We have one of the prettiest yards in the neighborhood! June is in full bloom and I love it!.
Sorry about your team losing, Marsha. It sure is more fun to win but we can't always , that is for sure! I like to think that at least one team is happy:)! By the way-I slept through the night last night -only up once for potty break. ! First time in a while!
Thinking of Bella on her cruise. We are all with her in spirit aren't we?:)
Hope Roberta is organized by now. So frustrating!
Tutanan-we have a DGD living in Fairbanks. Fun to hear from her-she is enjoying their brief summer weather.:)
Hugs to all-Pat

Ree, I know how it is. My husband couldn't find the bathroom in a motel once and another time he ran into the mirror as it reflected the bathroom[
Another time he was standing in the door in his shorts as I shut the bathroom door so he wouldn't hurt himself on the mirror.
I had been driving for a long time but he would carry the luggage in. Now he couldn't because he couldn't find the room so I had to do that also.
I would do it all over again.
We love them till the end then when we are alone we miss them and think they should be sitting in their chair.
Love you Ree.

Hello on a rainy Saturday ,
We just had five days break on the Welsh coast, not hot but dry and warm weather, it was a trial to see how my dh Mauruce coped with being out of his comfort zone and routine. It went well generally, yes he was more confused but he was happy and enjoyed being away,
It's get back to routine today and my own way of eating.
Irene . Yes we are still here that's the main thing and trying to make the most of each day.
Have a good weekend , Ree

I'm Off for a Bermuda cruise with the family

I will be gone until next Thursday.

I know this will be a challenge for me with all the food and goodies !!!!!!

I also know the cruise line offers healthy alternatives and I will do my best to choose them.
As far as exercise I will try to get some in before the morning shower . Out on the patio overlooking the ocean. That should keep me motivated. I will be swimming in the pool and at the beach when we dock. Keeping up with my two year old grandson should keep me going.
I don't text or use smart phones (only have a cell for emergencies. I am bringing my laptop if I can get it working I will try to post.

Wish me luck

Bon Voyage

Yesterday was a horrible day for me. Couldn't even go to bed when I was so weak and worn out as I couldn't keep out of the bathroom. My pull up bag took a beating for sure.
Then this morning I ate, drank water and took meds and again I went to the BR. I was so weak and lay down on the bed on my back which I never do but was afraid to squeeze my intestines.
Today the nurse came ( a day early to check me out) The PT came and the part owner of the health care came to bring me my meds.
I didn't get on the computer until very late.

Good morning to all. A beautiful morning here so far, but rain is expected later. I went to my Chiropractor yesterday afternoon, feel some better. I haven't been wearing my Levelizers in my shoes, and she wants me to give them another try. She gave me a good workover, and is so sweet. I go back Friday morning. Just have to learn that I can not do what I used to do as far as lifting, etc.

I need to run the vacuum, but be a room at a time, not the whole house at a time. :)

Pat and Irene, when I read about your health problems mine seem so small. You both are in my prayers.

Hugs and prayers to all.

With the broken vertebrae only a miracle will heal me Pat. They said I had bad osteoporosis.
Then that one knee hurts that they operated on.
I have bad circulation and bad swelling of my feet, ankles and legs.
They said I had a heart attack also.
But I am still alive and doing what I can do.
I trust your problems will resolve quickly also.

Well, I did go to my gum specialist today. My gums were in bad shape as I had not been to him or the dentist either since I broke my back and have to take the high power laxative.
He wants me to come back each month for a quick check up. He never charges me for those.
Then go to the dentist in 3 months.
I was so worn out when I got home.
I went to cracker barrel. I called in my order and asked them if they could bring it out to me. They said they would be glad to. I think it was the manager. I tried to give him a tip but he wouldn't take it. He said it was his pleasure.
So I had my fish today but I was too tired to enjoy anything although I knew I had to take my medicine and eat anyway.
Then I took a long nap, about 2 hours.
Nothing I like on TV tonight so guess I will read while I am in my chair with my feet up.

Thank you for the support re moving house. It's a similar size to what we have now but has a grassed area with trees , we live in an apartment now with no outdoor space.
I have said yes we would move if the family help us do so. It won't be for some time ,
Until the legal side is done it's not definite .
We are going away today for a few days at the coast, with our son. Hoping M adapts to new surroundings . I want to get him settled into his own routine as soon as I can,
Not sure of internet connections but will catch up soon, have a good week . Ree

Had a rough night last night as a painful bout with constipation arrived about 9:00 last evening and lasted all night. ( DD thinks it may have been brought on by the cheese dishes we have had recently. ) Took MiraLax and waiting for results. Also making many walking rounds of house with walker.
Juice fasting today in prep for Colon Dr visit tomorrow.

Hi friends, yes, it is always so nice to check in here and chat with friends near our own age and who understand where we are coming from. :)

Ree, DH and I made the big move 11 years ago. We left our lovely country home to be much nearer our DD's who lived many hours away. It was the right thing to do in our advancing years.
We now share a home with a widowed daughter summers and next door to another daughter in Texas where we built a small home there. It all was for the best. I hope you and DH find the same peace of mind.

Red, I am assuming this new house will be smaller? Downsizing is a big job, but life is much simpler with less to take care of! We did this a number of years ago...can't really say miss much of what we got rid of! Lots of decisions to be made! I gave most of my good stuff to the kids so I can still visit it if I want!!

Hello on Friday , there's been a lot going on with decisions to be made,
Basically we are probably moving house but not yet,
One of our sons has bought a small one storey house, we call them bungalows, it's in a dreadful condition and need getting back to bare walls and floor then doing everything,. His plan was buy it cheap do it up then sell it at a profit,
But it was suggested we could move in it.
So much to think of . I had to make the decision My dh can't do so now but accepts what I tell him.
For many reasons I said yet . Though the thought of an actual move scares me. Moving is not easy any time but worse in our 80's, it will not be for some time, the legal side takes ages, then it needs rebuilding almost , it's in the same small town we live in now, my head has been spinning, I am ok generally .
I did a sparks blog, not on that topic! Thanks to those who read it and commented . Have a good weekend . Ree

Hi ladies, i too had a busy day.
Did my assigned PT exercises. 20 minutes walking all together.
Had a doctor checkup with family physician. I have high cholesterol which doesn't make sense as my diet is excellent she says. It must be genetic. So dr. Says at 89 to just keep eating like usual and even add my small serving of icecream if i want. She says that is what she would advise her own mom:)
Another visit by OT therapist at noon. Put me through more exercises.
Tired tonight.
Watched the first episode of Rosemary and Thyme on NETFLIX tonite.
Now we are off to bed.
Like Marsha--Hair appt tomorrow as well as podiatrist appointment in PM!

Thanks Irene, he is so good, stays right with me, also Ginger. Had them outside for awhile and they both are sound asleep. They both let me sleep as long as I want in the mornings.

Get hair done tomorrow, and then to Publix to pickup a few things. Hope you had a good day, and have a restful night.

Sounds like an interesting movie. :) Sounds like you are fixed for food for awhile. Have a great day.

Geo. Jr. just left, he brought Spade over for me to keep while they go to Key West. They will be back Sunday late, he will pick up Spade Monday and mow and edge.

Hope everyone has a great day. Hugs and prayers to all.

We watched an interesting movie last night called "Northern Borders". Grumpy old grandpa raising his 12 year old grandson to be a "man". :)
PC nurse about to arrive. Late already.
An extended family member bringing us soup and banana bread for lunch.
Another OC arriving at 12:30.
Will keep you posted. People may overlap here:)

Just got through watching a movie on TBN. It was the Nazis against Rome and the Jews there and a priest helped over 4,000 people escape. They were out to get him but he always disguised himself and escaped. Then the troops came in and took the Nazis away. The lead one was in prison and the priest he tried to kill would visit him. Finally he accepted the Lord and let the priest baptize him. It was a good movie.

I, too, suffer from restless legs...I find a couple of Advil help...at least they let me go to sleep!
I also get leg cramps at night, mostly, I think, from not drinking enough water. Magnesium helps me with both problems.

Ree I take a magnesium tablet each night as I used to get restless legs and sometimes cramps in my legs. It is an over the counter supplement. Also are you getting enough potassium?

Hello on Saturday ,At our age our health becomes our main topic of cinversation and concern ,I do want to be healthy and do all I can towards that aim but I don't want to be a bore on it,
I will say I had restless legs last night, I do get it occasionally but never as prolonged and bad as last night. I got up and walked around ,even did some exercises, that didn't help, I looked it up ,I saw massaging sometimes helped, I did my own massage, it did help, I will try that quicker next time . I read it can be an iron deficiency , does anyone else suffer with restless legs ? Have a good weekend ,
Ree

Pat can't you get home health care through your doctor. I had a nurse come today. She is so good. I asked for her as I had her before and the other one didn't do the job as well.
I have a therapist that comes twice a week. All covered by Medicare.

Oh I see I missed seeing Lois's message! So happy to hear from you, Lois, but not happy that you are still waiting to get back in your condo! That is a long time to be living at a hotel!!
I know you will be so glad to get your life back to normal again!
My life has changed since last talking to you as well. Since getting back to our northern home
And living with DD #1- she has been concerned about my lack of energy compared to previous surgery days. So she has lined up every possible Dr and therapist to help in that department. :)
Already a Physical Therapist and nurse have visited and just now an Occupational Therapist just left. They have all looked over every aspect of my daily life and approved of most I think.
And All plan to revisit again a couple times. :)
I am doing what I can to live up to their suggestions.
Please let us know when you finally get back to your condo.
Hugs, Pat

Lois thanks for checking in and letting us know how you are doing. We care.
I just finished mopping and mopped myself into my computer room. How handy!!
Have got a lot accomplished this morning, been going ever since I got up. Got the deviled eggs done for tomorrow. Will cut up the cheese and salemi shortly and put in zip lock bags.

Hope everyone has a great day. Sun out nice and bright here. Talking of rain this weekend.

Hi! Just dropping in to catch you up on what is still going on with me. Still at the hotel, but hope to be back in my condo on Sunday. Have been at the hotel since 4/19th. When finally back to a somewhat normal life will start sparking again.

My blood work came back almost perfect( must be this vegetarian diet!) . Just slightly high in potassium. Will cut back a little on the bananas in my smoothies.

The nurse was concerned because DD told her I drink lots of water. ( just practicing my Spark advice) She said i should get my electrolytes tested as i may need Gator Aid. :) i will ask our family doctor about that.

Good luck Irene with your PT and nurse. I sure like mine. I hope they can suggest something to help with your problems too!!

Time to do my morning PT exercises. Be back later.

Pat I had a re evaluation this week so the PT thought she would just come one day but she said she was mistaken and would start next week.
Tomorrow the nurse comes. I changed nurses to the one I had before as she is more thorough.
I couldn't do much today as I kept having to go to the bathroom. I was quite concerned.
Every time I drank water I started going. I think I told you this on another link. Thought it might be the cherries.

PT back again this morning and I have gone through her list of exercises both morning and evening. DD accompanied me out of doors practicing . The walking exercise with a sit down walker lent to us by a friend. I know I could do this easily without DD but it makes her happy to
Give her support!
Got my hair done today too but was not happy that i had to wait over half hour for my hair dresser to finish her last client. Next week i will call to see how backed up she is before we leave the house:)
