I spoke to the DMV this morning. They sent my car registration renewal in June and PO returned it to them. I suspected PO was the problem. Anyway, I can have smog test and register car without the notice, but need to do it quickly to avoid fine.

I called my PO to complain about the mail service. I have had several important pieces of mail delivered to wrong street address, etc. No answer at the PO. I will keep calling until I reach manager to lodge complaint. This year has been the worst mail service I have had in 20 years.

I am glad the GPS tracker works and Ms Vi is able to get around a little. Sorry she has to wear collar. Dogs don't like collar. My son's dog was bite over his eye by another dog and had to wear collar until stitches healed. He figured out how to get out of it while my son was at work.

I hope Ms Vi is as good as new in no time.

Ms Vi's and Sir Pinkerton both have the GPS tracker on their collars.App is om my phone. So when they are in the back yard and can't see them, just go to the app on cell and they can not hide anymore. Have another similar on my cell for family members but, have never activated it. Who in their right mind would want your mother to know where you are!

MsVi is managing 4 steps both ways at this time and her incision line looks great. She's stressed though, as she has to either wear an E collar or a doughnut and she doesn't like that one bit.

How is Vi and GPS collars working out Michele?

My neighbor pointed out that my car registration sticker expires in two weeks. I never received renewal notice. I am sure DMV sent it and my po lost it. Mail delivery has been awful this year. So, I have to deal with the DMV on my day off work. Argh! Not the way I planned to spend the day.

Thanks Tee!
She was sedated last night at the Vet's and they placed a catheter to help with the IV fluids she is receiving plus keeping her off that leg. No calls so far of good or bad news. Do expect to her something when Daughter gets home. At least this week is starting way better than last week.
Today would have been the start of the 3rd week for Vi been gone.

GPS collars arrived to day for Vi and her brother Sir Pinkerton. This should be interesting, being able to track a pet with a cell phone.

I am happy Ms V is back and sorry about her weight loss, temp and fractured femur. I hope she only requires a cast and tlc from you.

emoticon Miss Vi is spending the night at the Animal Hospital! She is back with a 4 pound weight loss, temp of 103 F ( pneumonia ), and a fractured Left hind Femur. Tomorrow her regular Vet will decide how the Femur will be handled. Receiving IV's over night for hydration.

Today has been a good day!

Sorry Ms Violet hasn't been found. Another animal could have eaten the food in cage. I hope tracker or another person finds and returns her and Sir Pinkerton calms down.

No Ms Violet is still on vacation. We have had no sightings since last Friday. One of the food cages that was set was emptied but, that could have been any animal. It seems Shibas are know for taking vacations according to the tracker we are working with. If she stays on a northern course she will make it to the Great Lakes area. I'm just hopping she gets tired and starts doubling back home. One of the Food Cages had an Arby's roast beef her favorite, that was the empty one!

Still hope she makes it safely. Sir Pinkerton is getting vary jumpy and depressed.

Has Violet been found? GPS collar seems in order.

I slept little last night. Probably because I sleep too much Sat night and Sunday morning. I felt fine today and swam two hours since pool was empty.

It cooled way down here. I love the coastal foggy nights and morning. Now weather said it is going to heat up again. The ac will go up if it heats up. I can't take the humidity anymore.

Fortunately the Rescue Center had chips implanted when she was taken there to rehab. Her chip ID number has been given to the shelters and Vets. in the area. I went ahead and posted the flyer on Facebook ( Public to all in the site ) hopping that someone in the area or if they had friends or relatives would have then on the lookout as well. SIL has decided to also order GPS collars for both Violet and her sibling Pinkerton. I'll try and post a Flyer on my Spark Page as well.

Sorry Violet disappeared. Does she have a chip? Have you phoned the local animal shelter? You need to phone them daily to see if they picked up the dog. Crossing my fingers that someone in the neighborhood is taking good care of her, see flyer and returns her to you. emoticon

If ever there was an time for craving that cig it is now. Monday, the Shiba Inu disappeared from the backyard. Today is the 3rd day she has been gone. Violet is a rescued Shiba from a ' Puppy Mill ' and requires a special diet and medication twice a day. In the 4 tears she has been with the family she has come a long way to improvement in her behavior and health. We have put out flyers everywhere possible and on Facebook.

Wish us Luck that she returns Safe and unhurt! emoticon

Home grown veggies and fruit are the best.

I saw doctor. She said my headaches, etc are due to not absorbing medication. She increased medication and ordered blood test and visit in 6 weeks. She will switch medication if levels don't improve. I pray the increase works. I feel better, bp and cholesterol, water retention, weight decreases since now I weigh the same as when I was dx'd 50 years ago.

Hotter than heck here. I came home to rest before heading to Walmart to get new tires.

Fortunately D & SIL are taking care of the grounds and pasture. This morning though was the first time I have ever been close enough to catch the aroma of the tomato plants. So went right in and had a delicious salad. Who knew farming could be that rewarding.

Have a great weekend. emoticon

I had gardeners cut down weds here. Didn't do a bit of good. Air pollution is so bad here, I have to close my windows until bedtime for relief. I closed the windows one day and my place was so hot it wouldn't cool off. Hot as heck here. Only breeze here is when a plane or helicopter flies by to land in small airport a few blocks away.

My blood tests were bad which is reason I have headaches, forgetfulness, etc. I see doc this morning. Wish me luck.

I would add half capful of Alkalol to saline nasal spray bottle since it is only 1.5 oz. I added capful to cup (8 oz) of saline water.

I am having terrible time with forgetfulness. I left the tv and computer on for 5 hours last week. Left my purse at home today. Couldn't remember how to do something on computer either. The forgetfulness started when I had sinus headache, but headache is gone. Looking forward to blood test results and seeing doc on Friday.

Alkalol. I purchased it online since drug stores in my area sold out. I bought a 16 oz bottle from Amazon for $10.50 with free shipping. Arrived in 2-3 days. You can add a capful to a bottle of saline nasal spray if you don't have other containers.

I just read about police ambush in La. Awful. We need peace in this country.

I broke down and purchased a natural nasal cleaner recommended by ENT and allergist. Don't know why I waited so long to purchase it when there were hundreds of five star reviews by patients. I put a cap full of the solution in a cup of saline solution. Poured some solution in empty nasal spray bottle and sprayed nostrils. Opened sinuses immediately and kept them open while outdoors, shopping, etc. Used it as gargle last night before bed cause I wake coughing up junk. No cough this morning. I used it on my nose this morning with same results. This is the first time in years that I am able to breath thru my nose even when windy.

Praying for a peaceful week for everyone.

Can't wait for the next 4 days and just what will develop around Central Ohio and today in Cincinnati. Right now the rural area seems to have more of a peaceful environment at present.
Would like to keep it that way for as long as possible

This past year has been the first time in decades that my allergies have given me problems and Fall is still a few months away. Would love to be able to go through the Summer and enjoy just being outside a whole day for a change.

Have a great week and stay or get Smoke Free!

Second career! I am on my eleventh. Sorry it is hot and humid there. Glad some plants in your garden are thriving. It is nice to pick produce from your yard to use for salad. I fondly remember those days.

I was really sick with allergies yesterday. I think due to dust, etc from housing construction in back of my apt complex. No construction or allergies today.

I looked for a replacement range hood fan filter yesterday, couldn't find and watched how to clean them on u tube. The first and second method didn't work independently, but worked together. Nice clean filter screen above range today. Time to tackle cleaning the windows and blinds.

We're in for another Hot & Humid Day. At least the Blueberries, Blackberries and tomatoes have thrived through this weather. Lettuce has not done badly. So nice to walk out the back door and gather the fixins for a salad.

Now working on plans for horse barn, paddock, arena and back 40 ready for Hay next year. Starting a 2nd career does have its perks.
Enjoy the weekend, stay Safe and Cool !

Glad you are functioning. Sorry about the storms ruining your garden.

It has been warm here with lots of allergies. I haven't felt well in weeks. Neither have my co workers, friends and neighbors. I had terrible headache when I woke yesterday. Felt better when I swam at gym. My tongue hurt and mouth broke out with sores on drive home from gym yesterday afternoon. Same symptoms plus stomach ache on drive home from blood test today. Taking Sudafed eliminated symptoms in an hour. I usually feel great in warm, hot weather, but don't this year due to allergens.

Sept is usually hottest month here. I hope the coastal fog continues in morning and night and 70s in daytime.

Greetings, seems I can function today in the light. The storms of Wednesday evening have played war with the flower garden and the tomatoes and lettuce.Instead of no rain we are walking around it seems through a bog. The heat index doesn't help one bit. If July is unbearable what will August and September be like.

Actually I'm praying hard for emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Great Becky. You should continue taking Chantix when you quit. A lot of smokers that quit with Chantix took it for a month or more while quitting. Some that stopped taking it too soon, returned to smoking.

Today is day 4 on Chantix. I start with 2 .5mg pills a day today. Just a few more days until I put the cigarettes down with it. I've already cut down a lot. My boyfriend and I are doing it together, and we are both ready to do this!

So I ended up smoking after I posted a few days ago. But I called my doctor and he called Chantix in for me. I'm starting it tomorrow.

I am just starting my *most recent* quit attempt. or should I say... MY QUIT!!! I went for over 24 hours without a cigarette.. from Saturday, early afternoon, until Sunday afternoon... and then let my boyfriend's stresses affect me. We are supposed to be quitting together, so when he bought some because of a stressful situation, I smoked. I have had a few, but I am re-starting.

I am going to do this! I want to run again. I want to be healthy and breathe again without getting short of breath! I want my life back without being controlled by a Marlboro Light.

I go on a cruise with my daughter on August 4th. I will not be taking any cigarettes with me on that cruise or having to look for places on the ship where I can smoke! This is my life. It's time to take back control!

Just love waking up to November weather in the middle of May!!! Freeze Warning once again tonight. My 74 year old body is not adjusting to this Ohio weather, was never used to walking around with a heavy cardigan on nor a Winter Jacket on in May.

For some reason, getting those cravings back but, holding on. Got to get that 3rd year in July emoticon

This weather is doing job on my body. We still have coastal fog/dampness in morning and night. Sun and wind during day. Rain weatherman predicted turned out to be a few spitting drops. I hoped for more since my car needs washing. I am waiting for 80-90 degree temps weatherman predicted. The fog/dampness causes my joints to ache. Wind causes makes me sleepy.

I went to pool yesterday since wound healed and weatherman predicted hot weather. It wasn't hot. I was chilly in pool area and had to soak in hot jacuzzi before walking in pool. Anyway, my pain that was gone yesterday, is back. The knee killed after walking in pool yesterday and today. So I am taking it easy and doing thing around my place today.

Suppose to be cooler with rain over weekend. I am not asking for hot weather, but warmer without fog/dampness would be dreamy.

Hope everyone is doing "A Okay" with this wild weather. This week it has done nothing but rain and next week rain is in the forecast once again. I will say the emoticon was warm today but, the wind is picking up and you can smell that emoticon emoticon is not far way once again.


Have a great weekend...............

Have had rain here the past 2 days and for the next 2 days as well.Just to wet to walk or machine cutting grass or readying fields and gardens. Today's rain is a cold one, don't know just when to put those Winter clothes in storage for next year. Not sure Mother Nature does as well.

Can't believe tomorrow is the first of May! Looking forward to next weekend for a change.
Have a dry weekend!

Dropping by to see how everyone is doing. Weather improved Michele.

Cool and foggy here. Reminds me of England. I never cared for fog or dampness.

It has been two weeks since I cut my leg. Eight days since cellulitis. The infection is subsiding. Just a little redness around cut. Scab started to form. I am able to walk a little more. My hip and groin ache from elevating leg. I can't wait to return to pt and get aches out so I can swim again.

Enjoy the weekend.

I dislike healthcare since Obamacare. Electronic records under Obamacare are useless. Facility only shares them with doctors in same facility. Hospital and my other doctors can't access them. I walked into ER with index card listing my conditions, medication and allergies.

I realized this morning that ER didn't even check my blood pressure. Sheesh!

Sorry your new PCP isn't making points with you Michele. She should at least know what conditions you had in past. I am glad oncology and cardiologist is interested.

Sorry you are anxious. My doctor recommended taking 250 - 600 mg of magnesium glycinate daily for anxiety and sleep. Customer reviews I read regarding this supplement were very good. Patients felt calmer and slept better.

There is also a spray that works well. It is called Calm...something or something Calm by Bach, which Whole Foods and Sprouts sells. It is expensive, but works quickly.

I use magnesium since good for relaxing mind and body, and inexpensive.

It is 80s here. I am angry at myself for being stupid and not being able to swim.

Don't ya just love healthcare. The new PcP I have here is not making any points with me. Says what is in the past is in the pat and doesn't want my records sent to her. At least Oncology and Cardiologist does. I would think she would want to know the order in which things in the past happened and why!

Anxiety seems to be the normal with me these days. So guess I'll have my chance for excitement! Tee.... how bout an electric razor?

Hey, Snuz, how are you doing?

80 today. 66 tonight. I spent 6 hours in ER yesterday. I cut my leg with multi blade razor, which should be outlawed for use by anyone over 60 (lol), and couldn't get it to stop bleeding. I had to tourniquet area to get out of shower, dress and to ER.

ER was empty when I arrived. Nurse removed tourniquet and said it wouldn't stop bleeding. Dah! I told her that. She asked if I took blood thinner or aspirin. I replied, "No." Than, she asked if I wanted ibuprofen for the pain. I said ibuprofen causes thin blood and bleeding. She said, "Oh, yeah. I will give you Tylenol." I took two Tylenol, which did nothing for pain. I was sent back to waiting room to wait for doctor to see me. Three hours later, another patient in waiting room told me I was bleeding thru the bandages. I told nurse this. She said if you bleed more come tell me.

It took 5 hours to see doctor. He said nerve endings were causing the pain and would subside in a few days. Days! I was ready to kill someone. I asked for spray to stop bleeding and pain. A nurse that works at another hospital told me about this. Doctor said, "Yeah" left room and never returned. It took another 1 1/2 hours for nurse to come in. She wanted me to sign for tetanus shot. I refused to sign until given something for the pain. She left room and returned with lidocaine gel to put on area to stop pain. Area couldn't be stitched since I took off too much skin. I gave permission for tetanus shot and got it.

Nurse left room. An hour later another nurse appeared to put something on area that becomes my skin in four days and wrap with gauges. I can't get area wet or swim for 4=5 days. She said doctor would be in to release me. I signed myself out after waiting an hour for doctor that didn't show up. I hadn't eaten in 9 hours, was weak, dizzy and fell twice. I had granola bar in car, which I ate so I could drive home.

Hospital gave homeless people in waiting room, box lunches. I have private ins and couldn't get a cracker from them. They kept saying this is ER and we are busy. That doesn't explain why three nurses who were sitting in front of their computer for an hour didn't attend to anyone. I passed the nurses three times to go potty and none had moved from their chair. I kept asking hospital to take my ins information. They never did. Guess they will phone when my claim is rejected. All the patient forms were in Spanish. Thanks Obamacare.

Actually, hit 82 degrees today, grass cut, blown about branches burnt and I managed to get Taxes done. Went shopping today as well and picked a few things I needed. Now will be just gearing up for the last day of school.

Not a full moon baby please. Her mother was a handful. What am I saying. Let her mom have full moon baby. Than, she will see how hard it is to raise a daughter like herself. hehehehe

I am working on getting my place back in order. I lined the medicine and vanity shelves and put some items back before breakfast. Rotated my mattress and changed sheets. Doing laundry now. I need to vacuum up the dust before it gets dark. Not sure if I will have energy to cook dinner. It is warm here. I am like a flower that blooms in sun and heat. lol

Hope you have better weather Michele.

that little ole` bug of mine will be around until Spring is deeply entranced in our lives. Right now just trying to conquer my Sinuses.This Saturday we had Winter with Snow and by noon it was Fall weather. That night when we hit Winchester, KY the weather was Spring and this morning when we left it was still Spring but once across the Ohio river it was once again Winter. Never know what to wear these days.

Have a Blessed week and be Safe. emoticon
