Hi Ya'll. That's southern for you all in case you didn't know it. I have some good news...Went to see Nick today as it's been 8 weeks since I set my paws inside Dr. Gail's office. My blood sugar was 98. Yep, you read that right..98. Last time it was 180 so we were really pleased. Now I won't have to go back for another 8 weeks unless Mom notices me acting funny. Not sure what she means by that but I guess she knows. Guess I better go as Mom says she want to piggy back onto MY blog..the nerve of her. That's ok,,I love her anyway.

Here's Mom now...

Hi everyone, Yep, It's me. Thor's mommy. I am happy about Thor's numbers today. Had to share that news for sure.

I went to the human Dr. yesterday as I was still wheezing after coming off the steroids on Feb 4. He's changing my meds around..took me off Asthmanex and put me on Advair. Putting me on the generic for Singulair which I had been on a long time ago. He also is putting me on breathing treatments with my nebuliizer as needed up to 4 times a day. That uses Albuterol.
He said I'll be on this regime for a long time. He also told me that I may have reached the point with my copd that I may not be wheeze free any longer. He doesn't want to keep me on Prednisone (a steroid) due to all the side effects and I don't blame him. I also went for a chest x-ray this morning for my asthmatic cough. I appreciated his honesty and so we deal with the new treatment and see what happens. I'm really ok with it as I know God is in control...and all will be well. I better get better as I have to sing a duet on Sunday. My singing isn't usually affected so I hope it won't be Sunday.

Poor Arjay is sick now with the junk that's going around. Hope he gets better soon.

Our church had a wonderful concert last Friday night. The Collingsworth Family came and sang and played and they were awesome. We had over 400 people there and they were standing in line at 4 pm and the doors didn't open until 6. We were very uplifted with their music. I bought 2 cd's and when I got home I discovered one of the cases was minus a cd! That happens, so I wrote them an e-mail and they were so sorry and are sending me another one out right away. I knew they would make it right.

Our next concert is March 10 when we host the group "Soul'd Out". Hope it will be a success as well.

Well, that's about it from the House of Morgan . Have a good rest of the night everyone.

    WTG, Thor - your mom does take such good care of you.

    Hope you continue to feel better, Elayne. I'm taking Singulair myself these days.

    Great numbers, Thor! Elayne, here's hoping you and Ajay are soon feeling much better. Sounds like there is lots of good music in your area. Enjoy, as music lifts the spirits when the body is not feeling up to par.

    CONGRATULATIONS, THOR!!! You and Mommy are dong an AWESOME job!! Keep it up. Purrfectly!!!

    Elayne, Sure hope that your new treatments will work for you. That is similar to the combination that Ken is Predisone but Advair, singulair, spiriva, and an inhaler. They have made a huge difference in his breathing. Praying that you and Arjay are both feeling better really soon.
    So glad you had such a great turnout Friday evening. Enjoy your CDs.
    Blessings and hugs,

    emoticon Thor. I'm so happy for you. And I'm sure you Mom is too.

    I'm also happy for you, Elayne, Getting off Prednisone is good for you. I've been using Advair for about eight years now and it has helped me a lot.

    Take care and have a good night.

    Good job Thor! I am missing your canine buddy Jessie, but we won't be able to add a new family member for awhile. We travel quite a bit in our RV and want to wait to adopt another family member until we finish two long trips we have planned for the next couple of years.

    Elayne - I hope the medication changes are helpful to you and that Arjay feels better soon.

    Good for you, Thor!

    Great work Thor, I'm proud of you. I know it's been rough, but it's worth it knowing you can be healthy and possibly be around longer now that you're getting healthy.


    I am glad that you're off the Predisone now, it helps, but it is a bad thing to have to be on, especially for a long time. I have to be on it for my skin every so often as there is little else to help. I have used Advair in the past and it really helped me with my asthma. I'll be praying for you that something can help you with the COPD and for Arjay to feel better soon.

    Have a good night and give Thor some spark love for me, would you?
