Good Afternoon. I'm back from my trip to the lab and then I thought I'd see if the audiologist on the 4th floor might be available to look at my right hearing aid. He was. The right aid slips a little from my ear canal. The first question he asked me, had I lost weight since Dec. when I got them. He said the ear canal will shrink with weight loss. I will just live with it unless they completely fall out and then I will have to have another mold made.
We took DS to the air port last night. He should be home by now. I hope he gets a few days to get readjusted to the time change before they have to drive up to Mi. to take care of DIL dad's problems. The dad has found a senior apartment living that they just charge by income that looks like a possibility. I don't like the fact that he would still cook for himself. DIL was talking to him on the phone on Sun. and he had been napping. He started to cough and DIL hears a beep beep beep over the phone and asked him what was beeping. It was the smoke alarm. He had put a ham hock and saurkraut on the store and forgot it and fell asleep. I hope that scared him as much as it did DIL. They also don't want him driving any more. I don't know how that is going to get solved.
Last night when we went to the air port at 8 p.m. it was so nice and balmy outside. Right now it is 67 degrees and sunny. I'm still wearing winter jammies to sleep in.
My budget food is anything I have made ahead and frozen.
Patty, getting a bone density test is a breeze. About the easiest of all tests. I hope your redo on the mammogram goes well.
Louise, have your DH look into going all digital with Verizon to save some money. DS and DH spent a lot of time at the Verizon store. DS says we will save about $50.00 a month. The computer, house phones and cell phone are all digital now. The cell phone has been switched to a throw away phone that you only pay so much a day when you use it. I think there is a max per year.
This is what blows my mind. We have an old princess phone that if we hook up to aVerizon wireless box we can take both with us when we travel. We could be in Texas and still get a call coming into the house on the box with the princess phone. It just has to be a land line phone. If we were in the motor home we would have to have electricity, either from a power post in a camp ground or we could run our generator. Our cell phone has one phone number and the house does have the original. No more AT&T bill.
If the power goes out in the house we have 2 hours of back up battery that will last 36 hours. I think that is correct. So many new things to learn.
