Dorothy: Have to agree. 5 am is sleeping in for me, too. The usual is 4 am.

Glad you got to spend some time w/your Mom. Hope you got to the cabin.

Ohhhhhh thanks for telling me about the mountain pie! Sounds good!

Nola: Oh interesting about your version of the mountain pie too. Now I’m hungry for a mountain pie!

This is a particularly wet summer it seems. Usually by this time of the year, the grass is already getting a bit brown. Lke a jungle right now!

Aww, so glad you’re on the mend and sending healing vibes to Don. Have a nice relaxation time by the fire!

Pouring rain all day. Another good day to be inside by the fire. I feel a lot better today so hope I am on the mend. Don is still not good, but he is not getting any worse. This is our rainy time of the year, soon we will be looking for it. It is not cold by your standards but it is nice to have the fire.

Dorothy we call those mountain pies Jaffles and the iron a jaffle iron. I do notice that the term mountain pie is starting to creep in to our vocabulary. We make a lot of them when we are camping ...very Yummo. emoticon

Lin I love the sloth. I know that feeling emoticon

Barb good you escaped the awful weather, Good the antibiotic is working for your Mom, and your Dads wound is healing slowly. You definitely need some sunshine in your life. Are your summers always wet like this? emoticon

Eliza is it Monastery day today? I hope the sty goes soon. They can be very painful. Lovely to get out walking early in the morning emoticon

Don't forget weigh in day tomorrow emoticon

Nola - hope you and Don are feeling better,

Barb - hope today is a better day. The weather has certainly been weird. They had tornadoes in the Buffalo area plus flooding - just so weird. We finally got some much needed rain which sounds funny because we have had so much this summer but last week was so hot and dry.

Eliza - I would consider 5 sleeping in - lol - in facet I did today - did not get up until 5:30.

Lin - hope it gets cooler for you.

It was a good day yesterday - took my mom along - I know she was itching to go. Suppose to rain today - we will see - I really need to get tot he cabin and mow.

A mountain pie is basically a sandwich - you take 2 pieces of bread and put filling in such as pizza sauce and cheese or pie filling - put it in a pie iron and stick it in the fire - when you take it out you have a sandwich that is sealed together - so good.

Nola sorry you and Don are down, hope you feel better this weekend

Barb I saw the weather forecast for Wisconsin, you've already had 7" of rain? Lordy, better break out the ark. I'm sure the weather is probably contributing to Mom and Dad's stress.

Dorothy sounds like fun with your grandies! They grow up so fast.....

We are supposed to be 10 degrees cooler today, I'll take it. I'm being a sloth today

Saturday – Mom had a tough morning. She didn’t want to take her pills. Finally got them in her and she was better. Talked with the Dr. Her marker for congestive heart failure is WAY elevated. So getting that Lasix in her is imperative. Her leg does look better so that means that the antibiotic is working. Thank goodness!

Dad seems status quo. No real change. Not much of an appetite, but did fairly well @ lunch yesterday when I was there. Wounds continue to SLOWLY heal. That’s a good thing.

Raining off and on since last night. Supposed to continue the rest of the day today. But no bad storms, so that’s all right.

Have a great Saturday!

Dorothy: That’s awesome that you had a good time w/your granddaughters. Don’t think I ever heard of Mountain Pies!

Nola: Hope both you and Don are feeling better. HUGS!

OH my goodness, it is amazing what gets under the stove. Pulled it out to clean underneath yesterday. YIKES. But all clean now.

Dorothy de cluttering is good for the soul....or so they say. I think my soul needs a bit of a hurry up, mega decluttering needed here. emoticon

Lin you decluttering as well. It must be catching. Hope you are having a good weekend.
It is amazing what finds its way behind the stove and refrigerator. emoticon

Catch you all tomorrow. emoticon

Nola - I do hope you are feeling better - yea or the food in the freezer.

Eliza - glad to hear that your mom is well - mine is going with me to Buffalo today to my grandsons birthday party.

Barb - oh no - glad you were able to get her calm - sorry it took so long. Hope that the cellulitis heals soon.

Had a fun day with my grand daughters yesterday - we shopped and got them early birthday presents. Then we came home and made mountain pies and smores.

Friday – Well, Mom had a meltdown of epic proportions yesterday. Just utterly sad. Took one hr. to get her calmed.

She is now going to have to start on Lasix as well. She has swelling of both legs, but of concern is especially the right one w/the cellulitis. The excess fluid has to be eliminated. So, hoping the Lasix does the trick.

Then she was not cooperating to take her antibiotic. Had to have a come –to-Jesus talk with her telling her that she had to take the pills to get better or she’d end up in the hospital. That worked . . . for now.

Dad was a little better. UGH

Rained overnite and into this morning. Then got kinda steamy. UGH. It’s supposed to rain again tonight. Cool down doesn’t happen till Monday.

Dorothy: OH Mom is stubborn all right!!!

We’re supposed to get lots of rain here between this afternoon and tomorrow afternoon. Looking @ the radar I think they’re right!

Don’t work too hard cleaning!

Nola: Oh no, so sorry about your sore throat and chest. Yes, glad you have food in the freezer @ this time. Makes it a little easier.

Eliza: Out the door to see Mom and Dad. Hope all is well.

Oh no on the stye. Hope it feels better.

Glad your Mom is all right.

Lin: How are you doing??

I woke up with a terrible throat and chest and feeling awful. I had to reschedule the ankle injection until next month. This being not well is so "not me". I don't usually get the bugs going around. So just had a very quiet day and lots of soup. It is times like this I appreciate the food in the freezer.

Have a lovely weekend. Hope you get another kitchen free date Barb.

Eliza - I bet pancho enjoys his walks.

Barb - glad that moms leg is feeling better - it amaze's me how stubborn people get as they age We have yet to get rain this week and with all of the humidity I have to constantly water. Of course it is suppose to rain this weekend.

Lin - i took the day off to do some decluttering and cleaning or as Nola calls in house taming. I should clean out my refrigerator too = it is scaring me. emoticon

So house cleaning and cabin cleaning is on my schedule today before i pick up the girls.

T-storms and 92F here today. sure hope it rains! did some closet decluttering and cleaning in the kitchen, still need to move the stove and clean around and underneath it. I bought some club aluminum pots on eBay as I gave mine away 6 years ago. I've never found anything better for good home cooking!

Barb hope all is calm today. Usually when it rains here, the humidity drops when the sun comes out.

Nola I hope the injection works miracles for you this time.

Dorothy enjoy your time off, you certainly have earned it!

Eliza hope all is well with your mother and congrats on getting your walks in!

Thursday – Mom’s leg looked a little better today but she wanted NOTHING to do with putting her feet up. Maybe today, but sure not yesterday.

Dad was in a so-so mood. The Aide was there yesterday from Hospice, so he got his shower and seemed better afterwards.

Hot and humid here. UGH And raining. That certainly won’t help the humidity.

Donna: Hope that you have a good Thursday!

Nola: Rain here, too earlier. Glad you had a “catch up day”.

I do feel good after going to the stylist. She knows what to do with my hair!

Dorothy: Yes, seeing Dad have a smile is a real “upper”.

Wow! YOU have a free night! Hope you get some free time before your granddaughters arrival.

Wednesday – Well, got my hair cut and it feels good. Nice to do that!

Mom definitely has a cellulitis going on so on antibiotics. Put warm compresses on yesterday. Helped.

Dad was in a little better humor. That was good to see.

Weather getting warm and muggy, but supposed to be no rain until tonight. Hope that’s right!

Jas had a late meeting yesterday so didn’t get home till 8 pm. LONG day. Poor guy!

That’s about it!

Nola: Glad you’re feeling better and hope Don is too from his blood draw. **SIGH**

Oh, the staff knows beyond a shadow of a doubt that I definitely see problems and get ‘em handled before they get out of hand.

Lin: Thoughts of you and hope the shingles is going away.

Dorothy: THANK YOU for the added roses and Roses! Both appreciated! LOL

Yes, I am very glad to have such a good hubby. Makes things more bearable.

Glad you had a good golf game last night. Hurray!

That’s wonderful that you will get to be home on Sunday. Day of “rest” (bet not so much for you! LOL)

Eliza: Glad you and Pancho got a walk before it gets too hot. Hot and humid here.

Have a great day, ladies.

Tuesday – Had the meeting w/the Dr., Hospice nurse, me and Dad. Dad did agree to keep on the 20 mg. of Lasix. Dr. explained in no uncertain terms the consequences of going off the Lasix. Dad agreed. So, I’m happy.

Never to have things go smoothly, . . . SIGH . . . Mom has a sore on her right leg, she’s gained weight and has edema of her legs. Well, he’lls bells. So, going to do some labs tomorrow, see what is going on and in the meantime treat her w/an antibiotic as it is possible that she has a cellulitis. **SIGH** She could be going into heart failure as well. Lord.

Weather turning warm and humid. Enjoyed this lovely weather while it lasted.

HUGS

Nola: Well, glad you’re doing better! That’s a nice thing to have dropped 1 kg., but NOT the way to do it!

Ohhhhhh, I thank you for the rose AND the Rose! Think I’ll enjoy the rose while sipping my Rose!

Dorothy: Even on your little get-aways, you don’t get away from gardening/working! Safe travels this weekend.

Lin: Hope you’re doing better.

HUGS ladies.

Barb - I am glad to hear that the Dr and Nurse agreed with you and sorry your dad is so frustrated. How rough this all is.

Nola - glad to hear that you are feeling better and got rid of those pesky pounds.

Having 3 properties there is always something to do. I am thinking of getting away for a night in August - I so need a break. I am actually going away this weekend - my grandsons birthday and then on to help my daughter in her garden.

I think I am over the stomach bug, just feeling doughy. It came out of the blue, I don't usually get things that are going around.

Barb great to hear you were able to get your weekend date out with Jas. I can understand your Dads frustration at losing any powers and control of his life. I hope he gets to understand it is all done with his best interests at heart and lots of love. Found a lovely rose for you I think you have earned it well and truly emoticon Did I say rose perhaps I meant Rose emoticon emoticon

Dorothy forever working. Your cabin and surrounds must be looking beautiful. Are there lots of blueberries this year? emoticon

Lin good the shingles have been halted in their tracks.Hope the headache has disappeared and you are feeling better. emoticon

Eliza it is scary driving in flooded areas. Good you made it home safely emoticon

The upside of having a stomach bug is I am down 1Kg (2.25lb). Wait put on when our friend was here. I am intending to keep it off............

Dorothy: Had our meeting. The Hospice Nurse and the Dr. were there. Both explained, just as I had. That they cannot discontinue the Lasix as he originally requested. They did lower the dosage to 20 mg. from 40 mg. Already can see the affects, but Dad won’t go up on the dosage. That is his choice. He was kinda mad that it couldn’t be discontinued (ethical issues). So, we’ll see how it goes. At least he seemed a little more content when the Dr. and Hospice Nurse left.

You are a work horse! Wow! Mowed for 3 hrs., cleaned the rentals and worked in the gardens.

Barb - I hope you were able to meet with the Dr and get things straightened up. Poor Dad - but I do understand wanting to be in control of your life. Nice that you and Jas are able to enjoy your Saturday night dates.

Eliza - do be careful out there on the roads - we do not want you floating away.

Lin - glad to hear that you are feeling better.

Nola - hope is all well with you and Don.

I mowed at the cabin for 3 hours yesterday and got the rental cleaned as well as got some work done in my gardens. Kind of nice sitting still today.

Monday – Well, Dad was in a cantankerous mood yesterday – refused his meds **SIGH** I am looking forward to the meeting w/the Dr. tomorrow so that we can get this straightened out. I understand that he needs to be in “control” of SOMETHING but he doesn’t’ understand the consequences, I don’t think. But . . . hoping for better luck today.

Gorgeous weather yesterday . .. . 75F and the sun did come out @ 10 am. PHEW Pleasant.

That’s a wrap for the weekend. Onto Monday.

Nola, so sorry you are under the weather. Stay warm and cozy up with some hot soup and crackers emoticon

Dorothy sounds like you have everything under control (as usual!) emoticon

Eliza driving in rain can be scary especially when the roads flood. Glad you got your mother her groceries and got home safe.

Barb emoticon you and Jas got your Saturday night date in! hope all is well with Dad and Mom today.

Sunday – Yesterday was a nice day though warmer and more humid than Friday. Got lots of outside work done, which was good. Had a humongous sticker bush growing behind a bush which I never noticed! But got it out . . .. carefully!

Did have more rain overnight (thunderstorms), but we were all right. Haven’t watched the news yet, so not sure about areas south of us that were already inundated.


Mom and Dad were pretty good. As predicted, Dad is having some breathing problems since his medication was decreased. Hmmmm . . . . going to have to see what we can do on Monday.

Otherwise, it was a day of getting some chores done and Jas and I went out to eat. LOVE our Saturday night dates. Nice.

Blessings.

Nola: Oh dear, I hope you’re feeling better today! Take care of you.

Dorothy: Yes, it certainly was a comfort that the nurse stayed with Mom on her adventure.

Well, I will see how Dad is today. Meeting w/the Dr. tomorrow and I see an increased dose of Lasix in the future. **SIGH**

FIVE hours I’ll bet you were tired!

Eliza: Oh no on getting caught in flooding. That is scary.

We had a huge storm last night, but no damage here. I feel for those south of us who are already inundated.

Lin: Hope you’re feeling better.

We have to get this crew better!

Barb - it must feel good to know that the nurse stayed with mom on her adventure. I do hope dad realizes soon the need for more medicine.

It was very cloudy here all day yesterday - good day to be outside.

There are soaps and candles at our farmers market plus baked goods. But I do love to see it all ad my favorite the man that sells plants.

Eliza - smart lady to walk early in the morning before it gets too hot.

Nola - I do hope you are feeling better.

I helped the lady that I have been helping with her garden yesterday - pulled weeds and mulched for five hours - I was so tired but it sure looks nice - I am happy to get that mulch down so I do not have to keep weeding. Now too do that at my rental.

Saturday – Yesterday was a very cloudy day for sure! Thought it was going to rain, but no rain. That’s a good thing. Some of the areas south of us were declared a disaster area. My prayers for all those affected by the flooding.

Well, seems like Mom was a busy beaver yesterday in the wee hrs. of the morning. She wanted to “go home.” Apparently she walked around the building for 45 minutes! And then decided to try to exit the building. The doors are all alarmed. The nurse staid with her for 2 hrs. When I saw her in the afternoon yesterday, she was all right. Would not have guessed her escapades earlier in the morning.

Dad is having a little more difficulty breathing. I am giving him 24 more hrs. then even if he doesn’t like it, somehow we are going to get an increased dose of Lasix in him, which worked before. **SIGH**

That’s about all the news that’s fit to print.

Nola: Yes, our Aldis has good prices and sells local produce! Lovely. Wow! That’s good that their special was a drill for Don! They do have some nice specials.

It is sometimes hard to get the house taming tasks done, but they get done.

Dorothy: Wow cleaning and mowing. YOU WERE BUSY! Good luck @ the Farmers Mkt. Love ‘em. This year there is lots more extraneous stuff showing up, though. Preferred it when it was just the freggies!Now they have soaps, etc. Oh well.

Lin: Hope your not having much discomfort w/the shingles. So nasty!

Eliza: Hope all is well.

Took half a day off yesterday and got our lawn and the rental house lawns mowed and then cleaned both rentals. Plus was able to pick 2 tubs of blueberries. This morning I am getting ready to head to the farmers market and then on to the lady whom I am helping in the gardens house,.

Barb - I need to get an appointment for my mammo - thanks for reminding me.

Lin - oh no - I do hope you are feeling better.

Nola - I do love Aldis - there prices are amazing.

Just come in from a visit to Aldi. It is only the second time I have been to this one which is our closest. They have only been in our State for about a year and this one about 3 months. I was quite impressed with the prices and the fact that they are selling our States produce. Don is a happy chappy, the reason we went there he needed a new drill and they had good ones on their Specials. Amazing how many other things he needed as well. emoticon

Lin not the Shingles. I do hope you get over them quickly. I thought after you had a vaccination you didn't get them. Get plenty of rest. emoticon

Barb I hope the Mammogram was clear. Also you have a calm day with your parents. Perhaps the sun will come out and you will be able to get them outside. emoticon

Dorothy you have a good excuse doing everything you do to have a "homely" house. I can't believe a little old lady and a little old man and one small dog can still have a messy house. I do know as you get old it takes sooooo much longer to get through the jobs, plus there has to be a certain amount of sitting in the sun staring into space. emoticon

Eliza hope you and Pancho are well and not melted away emoticon

Have a lovely Saturday emoticon

Barb good luck with the mammogram. We had the humidity Wednesday, then a VERY brief shower, now back to humid (for Colorado) again.

Thanks for the coffee Nola! I know it must seem lonesome with our time differences. There are times I want to message you like right now, but you are in dreamland emoticon emoticon

Dorothy when I was working, they never could get the temperature right, the building was cut up into so many pieces there was no logical air flow.

Had a set back this week, found out yesterday the welt that popped up on my face Monday is shingles. I was vaccinated last year so I wouldn't get it, but it has reared it's ugly head anyway. I went to the doc yesterday and she said it was a good thing I came in, when they catch it early and start treatment it is less of a problem. So far, it is not bad, but it is still spreading on my face. The vaccine will hopefully make it a mild case. What would have been a busy weekend will now be quiet at home.

Eliza hope all is well with you! Have a super weekend everyone! emoticon

Friday: No rain yesterday so that is a good thing. Some areas are just so severely impacted by flooding. My prayers for them.

Not on much today. Mammogram day.

HUGS

Nola: Good luck w/the house taming. Not my favorite way to spend time either, but guess it has to be done once in a while.

Oh the flooding is bad in IL and Wisconsin. South of us there was 5 + inches of rain. 2 cities were declared disaster areas (they are about 1 hr. south of us). We were fortunate!

Yes, it is very upsetting to see Mom so upset herself. There just is no way to reach her when she’s like that. I was glad that the nurse and I were able to get her medication in her finally and she was better after that.

Had a good sleep! Thank goodness.

Waking to a cuppa would be better than a Razz! LOLOLOLOL You’re full of mischief! emoticon

Dorothy: Oh yes, for sure, if I am gone and Jas and Clara are home it definitely is a train wreck to clean! But I make them help. LOL

Yes our humidity feels like about 1000%. Yeah, that’s an exaggeration, but sure feels like it!

Nola - emoticon emoticon Nice to have a relaxing day to get your place in order. I try to pick up every night but it usually looks like a train wreck. I guess that is what happens when I am at work all day and hubby and son are home. I too like the old format - hate how they keep making changes and how hard it s to find things.

Barb - It was raining last night after work so I went to Sams - I was afraid I was going to run into flooding on the way home but thankfully I did not. And the humidity this morning is awful. Then I go to work and I freeze - for some reason they turned the air conditioning down - I hate it.

Glad you were able to get mom calmed - how stressful.

Time to run - got things Ineed to take care of.

Last weeks defeat is a gateway to many victories.

Lord - grant me the Serenity to accept the things I can not change, the Courage to change the things I can, and the Wisdom to know the difference.

Taking time out for a cuppa. Have had a cleaning day today. Not my favourite occupation. We have the partner of our favorite nephew visiting next week so want to look a bit spic for her. emoticon

Barb we saw the floods in IL on the TV this morning, looked scary. I hope they by passed you.
It must be distressing to see your Mom have a melt down. It is good she can't remember. Hope today is better. emoticon

Hope you are all having a good sleep. It is very quiet here when no one else is awake. Feel like getting my trumpet out and giving you all a Razz. Instead I have the coffee ready for you. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Thursday – wow! Lots of rain. But we were lucky. Lots of areas had flooding, and we didn’t.

Yesterday Mom really had an epic melt down. We (a nurse and I) finally got her settled and calm after 2 hours. Made me sad, but then when she calmed down, of course she didn’t even remember being so upset. That’s a good thing.

Jas had to go to a meeting in Chicago so took the train. That’s a good thing, so he gets a little reprieve from driving.

Otherwise, hoping Mom has a better day. Still dealing w/Dad and his medication, but think we’re closer to him understanding he needs it.

Dorothy: Ditto here. It is oppressively humid. Many areas to the south of us have severe flooding. Thank goodness not us, but I feel badly for those affected.

Yes, I HOPE the credit card debacle is closed now. We shall see. BUT up for the battle if it continues.

Hurray for garden puttering. That’s so relaxing.

Lin: Wishing you luck with your smaller goals. Focusing on getting off O2 is fantastic. I found when I focus on health issues, it is easier to maintain healthy habits vs. focusing on weight loss.

Nola: Glad you had a slower paced day.

I miss the old SP format too, but with all the “glitches” on the pages lately (LOTS of disappearing posts, long time loading), I smell change. **SIGH** We will see.

BWAHAHAHA! That’s too cute about Don and Barney having the same hair covering. LOL

Didn't have to go anywhere today so had a casual picking up and putting away kind of day.

Lin how good there is a way out for you to get rid of the O2. That is a great goal to have. emoticon

Barb that is so hard for you trying to keep your Dad on the medication that will help him. I hope he will see that it is necessary for him to stay on the best dose for him. Glad you got the Credit card debacle sorted. I hope we don't get any more SP changes. I really miss the old format. emoticon

Eliza glad you like my photo. My sister told me you can see Barney belongs to Don they have the same hair cover emoticon

Dorothy Golf must be a great game. Out in the fresh air and walking. Hope the floods don't eventuate. emoticon

have a good Thursday. Mine has been excellent emoticon

Barb - it is just sweltering here - funny thing is it is only in the 70's but the humidity is a killer. We are suppose to get thunder storms today so I am sure we will have flash flood warnings. Ugh! What a strange summer this has been.

Poor dad - so hard for all of you. But you are doing an amazing job - glad you wee able to get the credit card sorted out.

Lin - hope you are able to get off of the O2 - what a struggle -hugs to you and your brother.

It is wonderful to be outside walking when playing golf and enjoying mother nature. It was very humid Tuesday night but I still enjoyed it. Not sure how much I enjoyed chasing my ball everywhere - lol!

Eliza - you should really give it a try some time.

Nola - what a lovely photo - thanks for sharing. I do hope Don's blood work comes back ok.

I had a free night last night so I puttered in my gardens - loved it.

Last weeks defeat is a gateway to many victories.

Oh for sure Dad fights drinking water, too. So add all the other problems and mix in dehydration. NOT good.

So very sorry to hear that your brother is dealing pulmonary hypertension. My heart goes out to him (and you . . . I know how sisters worry about their siblings!)

Eliza: Glad you enjoyed Spiderman!

Linn: Yes, the Lasix is a diuretic meant to rid the body of excess fluid and he is not happy about having to go to the bathroom often. I don't blame him for that. But I don't think he fully understands the implication the without it, his breathing will become labored, his extremities are going to swell and it will be uncomfortable.

**SIGH**

Nola I love the photo! What a handsome threesome you are!

Barb glad you got the card sorted out, sorry Dad doesn't u/s the Lasix. Is there a side effect he doesn't like? Wish we had your rain for awhile anyway! emoticon

Dorothy glad you were able to get in the golf game. I'd love to try it sometime, I think it would be a great stress breaker

Eliza sounds like a good day. I agree you all are awesome!

Better week so far, doc was encouraging yesterday that with more weight loss maybe able to get rid of the O2. will be working hard to make it my Christmas present emoticon
