As soon as we fix one thing, another big one comes up!

Mom's insurance says that they won't pay for the radiation treatments because there wasn't a referral. Our primary left, so we changed offices, and nobody can help us so far. So frustrating!!

I understand how you feel Mary, I can't do what I plan a lot of times because of emotional stuff. You are doing amazing, so be gentle with yourself.

Cheri, I hope that you are feeling a little better. How is your ankle? I bet that they want to wait until that is stronger before they would want to do your hip anyway. My poor Cheri! Wish you were around the corner so that I could stop by.

I am still supporting my neighbors and the dogs. It is such a horrible situation. Because they were classified as dangerous, they are not allowed to give them away or anything. Rescues are not allowed to take them.

Hugs,

Sally

I can't believe that someone thought it was a free park for them when you owned the land. They are horrible. I wouldn't want to know them either.

Cheri, did I see on facebook that you are still getting snow?

It is cool here. A front came in a couple of days ago, but we are warming up. When it is cool all I want to do is stay covered up on the sofa. It was 35 the other morning when I took Betty to get her shots. I stayed cold all day. We are back in the low 60s now.

I gathered up another trash bag of books to take to Goodwill. I just can not get myself to pack up stuff even though I want to. I don't like looking at all of it.

That's not too bad, then, Cheri! LOL

Our neighbors with the dogs, are the only ones that we know in this part of the neighborhood.

When we were trying to build our house, the neighbors complained at town meetings, and they were nasty. Not just one family, but dozens. It was horrible, so we never wanted to get to know them. They wanted to keep the "free park" here for deer and other animals. We owned the land, and they could have bought it, too. It took 2 1/2 years to get permission to build the house.

Then when we moved in, somebody put sugar in our gas tanks. Then another neighbor stole our top soil, and we had to call the police for that as well.

We just never felt like getting to know them! It is a "nice" upper middle class neighborhood in a "nice" town!

Hugs,

Sally

I know! People sure are different. Glenn said that she has always been nasty about everything, and never has a nice thing to say about anyone.

He thinks that his girl dog sniffed and poked the dog a bit to play, and the boy dog treated it like a toy and took it away from her. They play like that with toys.

I will be happy if they don't put the dog down. He is very sweet, and it would really be upsetting for the whole family. They don't want to. They are very responsible and want to always do the right thing.

Hugs,

Sally

How can they charge him with two counts of dangerous dogs when only one attacked Sally? The woman must be a bag as much as I love my dog if someone apologized and said he would see it never happened again ,offered to pay the vet bills and obviously felt bad,I would not push to have his dog declared dangerous. love and hugs,Cheri

The picture is so nice, Mary.

Well, it was a rough weekend for our neighbors. I did lots of research for them. They were going to put Monte down this morning, but they couldn't do it. I am glad.

Glenn brought the dogs to see me twice today. They are wonderful and loving dogs. We waited together for the animal control officer to come and meet with him.

Because the owner insisted, they are charging Glenn with 2 citations of owning dangerous dogs and he has restrictions on what they can do. They are not saying that he has to put him down. The little dog is back home now, so hopefully he will be ok. The wife doesn't like anybody, so she is pushing for the most punishment on top of paying the vet bills.

The family with the pit bulls is so nice and responsible, they are torn up over the whole thing. I am glad that I could be a tiny bit of comfort and support. It is helping me get over Buddy.

Hugs,

Sally

I am sure they are nice dogs. I hope everything works out. The bolestridges lost their orginal dog, part English bulldog. He had gotten to where he could barely walk. He died weds, I feel for them.

I posted, here, the pictures of the coffee table. I am not completely finished. The items in it are Alans concealed handgun license, his business card, my wedding present to him a merchum pipe, a pin awarded for volunteer services at Rusk State Hospital, a small wooden cup he turned on the lathe, pocket watches, his vocational nurses license and pin, coins from the Bahamas, Apollo coin he carried in his pocket, tie tac from the prison system, coin from Yosemite National Park, and his scuba diving certification. I think that is everthing.

Oh Sally that is so sad .If he offers to pay for the vet and apologizes profusely will they not consider letting Monte live? I mean it was his fault Monte got away but if he takes responsibility and apologizes and shows the people it was just a case of male dog aggression , that Monte is normally sweet perhaps they will calm down and not be vindictive.

We are having a big problem in the neighborhood today. I woke up to men yelling and dogs barking.

My neighbor across the street has 2 sweet pit bulls. The male got away and attacked another male dog down the street. The attacked dog was taken to the vet, but they won't talk to my friend. He was crying when my sister saw him. He is afraid that they will have him put Monte down. He adopted him last year. His female, Cinnamon, was a rescue as well.

Bruce just got home from teaching all day, and he is changing. Then he is going to go over to see what happened and give our neighbors some emotional support.

Hugs,

Sally

I love you both so much, too.

It is a beautiful day here, too. Not as warm as Texas, though! We have had daffodils and crocus and the forsythia is just starting to blossom. The lilacs have tiny green buds - they are my favorite when they get full and smell so sweet.

I couldn't even write about Buddy for almost 2 weeks. I am running into his photo everywhere, because I was always taking pictures of him!

I hope that you get much better, Cheri. You are so special.

I am happy, Mary, that your knee has helped you already. It is wonderful that the surgery was so successful for you.

Hugs,

Sally

Sally, something serious was wrong with Buddy for him to continue to bleed. He is not in pain or discomfort anymore. He is running like a puppy right now.

Another beautiful day. I had to go to Lufkin today to sign taxes.

The coffee table sounds wonderful Mary.Thank you I will go look at the flowers I love flowers that will cheer me.
Sally I know how much you loved Buddy and he had a wonderful Mom in you.I firmly believe our dogs know how much we love them and one day he will be waiting for you at the Rainbow Bridge . He wants you to carry on and look after Bruce and be healthy in the meantime.
I have to say that both you ,Mary and you Sally cheer me so much .I get discouraged that I can't walk well anymore Sally so I really understand what you mean but I am doing my best but when I come here and you are both here it is like a sunshiney day. I love you both !

Sounds like you are doing so well, Mary!

I am doing the Lifestyle Counseling only. My family was very relieved that I am not getting the device.

Cheri, I am so sorry that you are still in so much pain. Hips are so central to out bodies, I am sure that everything hurts.

I ended up getting bursitis in my hip a few weeks ago. I can't always stand up or walk lately, I have shooting pains down my legs and up into my back. I know that it is nothing compared to what you are going through, but it certainly didn't help my depression!

Buddy just couldn't stop bleeding. The vet said that he probably had tumors in his colon. He was perky because of the predisone, but he just went to the bathroom everywhere and poured blood everywhere. He was getting aggressive with food because he was starving. It was just so upsetting. You know how much I loved him. I couldn't make the decision without trying everything that I could do, even though we couldn't really afford it. We spent about $1,500 in the last 2 weeks of his life.

I love you ladies!!

Sally

Sally, I am so sorry about Buddy. We all love our little ones and miss them greatly when they are gone.
Did you get the implant or the counseling? Sorry about Bruces aunt. Is she going to be placed in an assisted living near you or in Minn?

Cheri, I took pictures of the flowers today hoping it would cheer you up. I posted them on facebook.

It was another beautiful day today. The doctor was very happy with my knee and I don't have to see him again for a year. Got all my errands done. Go to Lufkin to sign taxes tomorrow. Seems I am on the road all the time.

I got 50, 40 lb, bags of topsoil and a guy is coming Monday to fill in the dog holes in the back yard (Jet). Thanks goodness Whisp has not been digging. The hot tub is ready. I turn the heat down and use it as a mini swimming pool. Who wants heat in Texas? Not me. I even found glass for the top of my coffee table today. I will take a picture when I get finished with it, maybe next week. It will have things of Alans displayed in it.

Bruce's Aunt Bea fell after her shower and broke her hip and her leg in Milwaukee. The poor thing is 92 and was on the floor all evening and until lunch time the next day. Luckily, she had friends coming to pick her up for lunch so they got the ambulance to come.

She is in rehab now, and Bruce's sister is looking for an assisted living spot for her.

Bruce is going to fly in for the weekend to see her on May 3. We had credit leftover from when Bruce when out for his uncle's funeral last year in May. He was bumped and so this flight is free.

She is Bruce's last relative from his parent's generation. They didn't have children either, so she is very close to Bruce and his sisters.

Hugs,

Sally

Sorry I got lost.

Did I tell you that Buddy had to be put to sleep? I have been very depressed, and so tired all the time.

I have been taking Mom and Dad to appointments and tests, and then to radiation every day as well.

I finally had my appointment yesterday to actually start my Lifestyle Counseling at the Clinical Trial. I am in the program for a whole year, and am working to lost 50 pounds or more for the year. I hope to be able to keep going this time because I am being monitored and supported by them, as well as the Diabetes office at my regular hospital!

So sorry I didn't check in.

Hugs,

Sally

Draining the hot tub. I know Alan has not put chemicals in it in months. The water is clear, but when I drain it, I clean the bottom.

It is another beautiful day here. the dogwoods are in bloom. I knew the cat food is disappearing, the neighbor told me that a raccoon is getting his, so I am sure that is what is getting mine.

I went to Sallys facebook page and it looks like she is checking into the hospital oncology department every day. Maybe she is taking her mother for treatments everyday.

Met with the lawyer today and got the deed to the house changed to just my name. Also talked to the social security department. I have to wait for an appointment, which will be May 29th, to do the paperwork for the $255 you get when someone dies. Did find out that I can draw on Alans account when I turn 60 for widows benefits and then if mine is higher( it should be) can change to my account when I turn 62 or 66. The longer I wait the more money I will draw. Something to think about for the future.

I think that is everything. I am sure glad. I had been putting off going to social security because I knew that I would only get $255 right now.

Wish the CPA would call. The deadline for taxes is next Tuesday. I hate waiting until the last minute.

I can't remember if I told you that I had to go to the emergency room and get a kenalog shot and the doctor put me on prednisone for 5 days and 2 antihistamines. After getting sick I came home and looked up those meds. Antihistamines can cause bad diarrhea and gastric upset.

Was suppose to see the surgeon today for the last time. I drove 50 miles and got really sick and had to come home. I called them from the side of the road and they changed my appointment to next Thursday the 10th. I had several things planned, shopping at Hobby Lobby, Garden Ridge Pottery, and driving the azeleas trails. I love all the flowers that rich people have in their yard. Hope they are still all blooming next Thursday.

I have been working in the yard. It was 83 today. I have simplified everything so I won't have to do so much when it gets hot. Also will not have to water very much. I haven't found anything that I can not do. It bends to 105 degrees, they said it should be at least 110. I still have a hard place below the knee and that is where it hurts if I try to bend it any farther. It is slowly getting soft. I see the surgeon on Thursday. I am happy with its progress.

Wonder where Sally is. Hope she is alright.

I sure hope so Mary I seem to be struggling to get any little bit of mobility .I do exercises to try and keep moving that are excruciating but they say I would be even worse without them. How are you doing .I hope getting better movement day by day.

Mary I am sorry you are so itchy. I wish I could say I was doing better but I seem to be losing mobility fast and to be honest I am getting scared I have always beaten the odds before but perhaps this is my Waterloo.

The installer said that no door will fit because of how my front door is in a corner. There is 36 inches and there has to be 38. I ordered a video peephole. It has a 3.5 inch screen, it takes a picture anytime someone rings the doorbell, and will take a picture or video when I want it to. At least I will be able to see who is out there and it has night vision. Will have to talk through the door. the ones that had an intercom, you have to recharge every 300 hours. I would forget to do that. this one has 4 AAA batteries and will last up to 1500 doorbell rings.

My annual spring whelps appeared last night. I had to go to the emergency room. I didn't even think about it. After checking in, the lady was escorting me to the room. Our emergency room is L shaped. She turned the corner and I stopped. There was the room that I last saw Alan after he died. She went past it and I consentrated on her and went into the room. When the nurse came in I was crying. She told me that they were going to fix me up. I shook my head and told her that my husband had died in trauma room 2 in December. She gave me a hug and told me that she was sorry and knew that it was hard for me.
Anyway got my shot of steroids and 3 prescriptions. Really glad Walgreens is open all night. All this was at 130am. I am itching and will be for a while.

I am sooooo out of shape. Left the house at 640am, got to my appointment in Lufkin at 830, and then went to my brothers. While I was there his son came by and we drove out to his new house. They closed last week. Then drove 30 miles and went to 2 cemetaries. I put out new flowers at Mother and dads, Sams, and Alans graves. I took up old flowers at the second cemetery. When I got back to Palestine, I stopped at Lowes and scheduled an installer to measure for a security door. I got home and was soooo tired and sooo sore. Tonight I took 2 advil and it is helping.

I had ment to get a security door for the front door when we did the windows last year, but didn't do it. In the last week, 2 ladies have answered their front door and 2 men push their way in. They made each lady write a check to herself, one rides in the car with her to the bank, the other man follows in a white truck. She cashes the check and they steal the money. One check was for 2000 and the other check was for 1000.

This world has so many bad people. Both of these incidents happened in the middle of the day with houses that are very close together.

Sally, I am really worried about Cheri. Last night on facebook she posted that she was swelling and her family wanted to take her to the emergency room. Today she posted that she was going to the emergency room. I think it has to do with her hip, but not sure. I hope she posts either here or on facebook.

Congratulations Mary! Is your knee doing better?

Buddy's bloodwork was all good except for white blood cells because of the infection. He still has a lot of problems, but there is NO indication of cancer or thyroid problems!

How are you doing, Cheri?

Sally

Oh Sally I am so glad you got Buddy to the vet my vet said it might be something easily treatable but bloodwork and a stool sample would be needed when I asked her so hopefully that makes you feel good the vet is doing precisely what another vet said would be the required treatment to find out !
Mary the bull dog puppies sound lovely.I am delighted to be able to take the cast off at night. love and hugs,Cheri

Sally, sorry that your parents are not doing well. All of you are in my thoughts and prayers.

I went out to see the bulldogs. the Bolesridges have kept in touch ever since Alan passed and through my surgery. I had told them I would come out as soon as I was getting around good. One bulldog had puppies Sunday and another is due at the end of next week. they only had one litter all of last year and now they are having 2 litters about a week apart.

Could not sleep last night. Don't know why, so I have slept toooooo much today. Will probably have trouble sleeping tonight.

Cheri, I saw where you can take off your cast at night. I am sure that feels good.

My sister helped me take Buddy to the vet. It was over $500 for bloodwork, stool sample, and ,meds. He didn't think that he needs to be put to sleep, which is what I was so afraid of. I didn't think that my sister would let me spend the money for the vet, either. She knows that I am really worried about him, and that the lack of sleep and stress is really bad for my health as well. The vet is really nice, and said that there are a lot of things that can cause colitis and the bleeding. The blood work will tell him if it might be cancer, or something much easier to treat - like a thyroid condition. Buddy was very peppy and is doing better with the antibiotic and anti diarrhea meds already. I had to re-organize my room again because he is peeing many times a day inside, outside, everywhere. Thank God that I got rid of carpeting in my room after he was skunked a few years ago!! I just love him so much.

My Dad is having so much trouble with his health, too. I could just cry with everything going on with my parents. Mom is being such a trooper with the cancer. I am really tired.

Hugs,

Sally

Poor Buddy there sounds like there is another issue causing the bleeding though. I actually gave True an oatmeal bath since they are colloidial and it seemed to help of course she is gone now.You can add oil to their food but I am hesitant to recommend that due to Buddy's stool problem . I get away with phoning and asking lots of questions of my vet without being charged ,I will see what she says tomorrow perhaps I can find something that will help Buddy.
Mary don't be so hard on yourself. love and hugs,Cheri

You are SO much not a fool, Mary! You are making progress. That is great.

Cheri, last time Bruce brought Buddy to the vet he was just diagnosed with urinary tract infection and colitis with infection. He had meds for both. The UTI got better, but the bloody mess every time he has to go poop is just getting worse. He has arthritis and has trouble moving around. He scratches all the time again, because we stopped giving him the steroids that he was on for a few years. I love him so much, and he has so many problems. His skin just smells awful all the time, no matter how many baths I give him.

Hugs,

Sally

The physical therapist asked me Tuesday if there was anything that I use to do and do not do now? I told him that I have been avoiding Walmarts. He asked why and I told him because it is such a large store. He told me that I needed to go there because it would be good exercise. So this morning I went. I made it all the way through check out and then got really nauseated. There was a chair against a wall after checkout and I sat there for a few minutes before going to the parking lot. I remember with the other knee I would shop and then go to the shoe department and sit for a while. I have been driving the truck because I though it would be easier to get into. I want a subway sandwich yesterday and as I left the house I thought I would try to get in the car. I feel like a fool. The car is much easier than the truck.

OF COURSE it makes you sad, Mary!! Just do what you can - as you can. Don't put "shoulds" on it. You had a lot of loss in the last year or more.

I am glad to hear that you are doing better, even though you are tired and sore. Seems that is natural, too. It is pretty soon, still, after your surgery.

Cheri, I hope that this last set of injuries heals better than the others. You deserve to have an easier time with your body.

My sister had to take Dad to the Emergency Room last night. His wound looked worse. They gave him IV antibiotics and upgraded him to stronger oral antibiotics, too. I was too wrecked to go last night. I was exhausted and cranky! Got up early and went to my last day of Diabetes class. It was really good.

I have to take Dad to the Wound Center in the morning. I hope that Buddy feels better and let's me sleep a little more. He is having a lot of accidents again, and bleeding a lot from his but - with lots of diarrhea. I don't think that he can last much longer like this. It is really bad for me and Bruce to wake up every 1-2 hours all night with him. It makes you kind of crazy, and makes it hard to stay awake the next day.

Buddy didn't really change after the last vet visit with all the tests and 2 kinds of antibiotics. He is still peppy and loves to eat, and it very affectionate. I just don't know what to do. We can't afford hundreds of dollars to treat him each time, especially when he doesn't seem to get better.

Well, I hope to start catching up online tomorrow. I am just so tired now.

Hugs to all,

Sally

The real physical therapist came and measured me. My knee bends a little over 100 degrees. He had to discharge me by yesterday.

I am resting today. Going to Lufkin tired me out.

I have this feeling that I need to start going through and getting rid of some things, but I just can not get started. It makes me sad.

Cheri, we are going to have to tie you to the bed and keep you hostage until you heal.

Sally, glad you saw your dads wound. He must have neuropathy to not be able to feel he had a would. Is he diabetic?

I get so tired so easily. I went and got my blood drawn, got gas for the truck, mailed a package to Maggie, and stopped and ate a hambuger at Sonic. Now I am exhausted.

Yes they are close to what I had before they said I have to be very careful and when the fractures heal they will start me on medicine for osteoporosis.

Oh, Cheri! What did they say? Are they close to what you had before from the accident? Did they happen at the same time as your ankle? I am so sorry, honey.

That is good news, Mary. Have a nice adventure!

How did the appointment go, Cheri?

I had my all day evaluation for the clinical trial yesterday. I really like the doctor, Physician's Assistant, and Nurse that run the trial here. I knew the doctor from 20 years ago, he was my endocrinologist. He stopped taking insurance and just works on clinical trials now. I will find out next week which "arm" of the trial they randomize me to - just the lifestyle support or the device with lifestyle training.

My Dad didn't realize that he had a large wound on his leg. Thank goodness that I happened to see it tonight. I got him to the clinic when Bruce came home from teaching, They are worried about cellulitis and bone infection, and said that I probably caught it in time! Went to the 24 hour pharmacy and got the meds for him.

I did a ton of laundry today, too. Have to go make the bed now so we can go to sleep~

Hugs,

Sally

Just finished my last PT session. The boss will come by one day next week and do measurements. My knee is bending 95 degrees. Things are getting easier. I am ready to go somewhere. I have cabin fever bad.

So good to see a positive report from you, Mary!

Healing does take time.

Hope you can get some healing progress, Cheri. It must be so hard with the cold and snow.

I was done in last night. Lots of stress every day here. Lots of medical appointments and waiting, waiting, waiting in Waiting Rooms!!

Mom is getting started with the oncology treatments - iron infusions and radiation now for almost 7 weeks, it turns out. It will be rough on everyone.

Hugs,

Sally

Oh, by Friday we will be in the 70s. Feeling good today. I think Friday will be my last PT visit.

I have been getting my tax stuff together. Got tax stuff in the mail yesterday. Feds don't go by the rules they have for everyone else. I did fine most of Alan receipts for his handgun classes. I was glad for that.

Need to go to Lufkin and clean out the travel trailer so my brother can take it to the consignment place.

I still get tired easily. My yard guy came this morning and he does such a good job. My yard looks so nice.

We ended up only getting 3-4 inches of snow. The snow line moved a few miles south, so our area didn't lose power or internet. Yay!

Just south of us in DE, NJ, and MD there was a lot more. I hope Tracy is ok.

Hugs,

Sally

I went on another outing. I needed to go to Lufkin to get Sams mail at the post office. There is tax stuff in it. Lufkin is 1 hour and 30 minutes away. I decided that I would get up this morning and go get gas and if I didn't have trouble with that I would take off to Lufkin.
I left at 845 and had no trouble so off I went. I got back at 1200. I did park next to a curb at the post office so it was easy to get back in the truck. I was tired and fell asleep soon after getting home for 3 hours. My leg did fine.

Sally, of course you have my sympathy for the cold. Our weather keeps going back and forth from lows in the teens and 20s to highs of up to 74. Tonight we get another cold front and we will be cold for a few days and then warm up.

Sorry that your angel is moving to another job. Hopefully her replacement will be kind also. Sorry to hear about your dad falling.

Cheri, you do live in the artic. Any news on when your surgery will be?

I drove to the store yesterday. No problem driving or getting out, but getting into the truck was HARD. Not to much trouble here, but when I left the store, only about 5 blocks from the house, I had to try 6 times before I made it in. I was exhausted. My knee needs to bend a little more to make it easier. I will try the car next time in the driveway to see if it is easier to get into and out of.
