Hi Mr Gator, I went to Church this morning and prayed a funeral Rosary for a man in the parish who died with the Holy Name Society. Then I went to the Adoration Chapel and prayed for you and Russ and others here at TU.
I am sorry to hear Russ is in a tough patch right now. I will keep praying.
Hi Russ- Glad you got your new stove. It sounds beautiful. Sorry Russ is having such a bad time with his surgery. My father-in law used to need cancer surgery like that almost yearly on his face and ears. Jim's dose of coumadin has been raised to 14mg. It seems he has a genetic mutation that doesn't allow him to use the coumadin properly and he needs a larger dose than usual. I am not used to him having medical problems. I am usually the one that has them. It is rainy and chilly today, don't think we will see the sun. Hope you have a nice weekend. I will say a special prayer for Russ at sabbath services tonight. Take care. Cat
Hi, I am doing a Reed and Russ check this morning. I hope Russ is doing okay, that the swelling goes down some today, and that he is not in a lot of pain. Did they give him a lot of medication? I sure hope he feels better. How was TOPs yesterday? I am going to work really early today because I have to leave for a doctor's appointment at two. I am going to the neurologist for a nerve conduction test on my hands to check whether I have carpal tunnel or neuropathy. I wish I wasn't going. I have a pile of papers to go through that is getting bigger by the moment. I got it down to a dull roar until the afternoon when a bunch of people came and threw more paper at me! I am glad tomorrow is Friday. I am so silly. I am not used to sitting for 8 hours yet and get sore. I did yoga to stretch out the day before yesterday/ I pulled a muscle in my back. It is in a giant spasm this morning. I stopped at the drugstore and bought a huge heating pad and took it to work. Everyone was wondering why the window was wide open and my room was freezing, yet I was sweating! They can only see me from the waist up the way my desk is set up, so it was my secret. Today I hope to make a big dent in that paperwork. I know you volunteered in a neurologist's office. I don't have any idea what a nerve conduction test is, but I think it has something to do with some needles and electricity. I should have asked you earlier so I knew what to expect. I hope he will have mercy on me and prescribe me a couple of pills of Flexeril muscle relaxer for this back thing. Sometimes they won't, and make you go again to the regular doctor for another appointment. It finally got colder yesterday. It was 70 for a few days and everyone was wearing shorts and sandals. Today it is 30 and just about the first time I will be wearing a coat this winter. It is hard to believe it is almost Christmas! I got a few presents bought yesterday on the fly. My boss has just gotten out of the hospital from getting a hip replacement. This is her second one. She is diabetic too. She got it last year, Type 2, and is still in the candy bar and McDonald's eating stage no matter what I tell her. They put her on insulin when she was in the hospital for the surgery to keep things in control. Well, I hope you guys have a good day. Sending healing thoughts to Russ and I am so happy your knees feel better. We will get the tree up this weekend. Then we have to decorate it! Lots.
hi Reed, I found the recipe on the kitchen counter. made the rolls and they are rising now, they look so cute, little knots. so much fun to make them. The ladies at the guild like everyone to make stuff homemade. somehow I think the hospitality committee rigged it so everyone with a B last name would bring bread. my 2 other friends who bake also have B last names. I also had to scramble to make a quilt block for the out going president. she was only pres one year. it's a hard job.
not the social worker called from Goodwin House and we are going to have to get all the sttuff out of mother's apartment in approx 30 days, no exceptions. she's been there 17 years. i really don't know how I'm going to do that. my brother has a bad back and cannot lift over 5 pounds. another day another worry.
how's Russ doing, a little better each day. poor guy! what's the story on the stove. love ya, hugs! bg 93 yea.
oh Reed, thank you, the little pin came yesterday, yes, may it bring some luck. now that Ed is 60 I've completely lost hope. still I pray, I guess it is possible. still rather ill, gosh it's been almost a month. I'm looking for a recipe for rolls and I can't find it. by 208. guess I'm changing out today. wish I felt better.
Hey there Reed!! Poor Russ...must feel odd covered in bandages!! Is it causing him any pain? There is SO MUCH going on here that I nearly made a mistake with dates!! I thought The Catholic Women's League pot luck dinner was today...bought my contribution...wrapped my gift to my Secret Pal...had some canned goods for the collection to the food bank....had my silverware and festive dishes on the counter, ready to go (we're instructed to bring our own dishes)! I called the lady I was suppose to pick up...just to confirm, only to find out that it's for NEXT Tuesday! (feeling rather foolish lol). Tomorrow night , Wednesday, is my turn to teach a Rite of Christian Initiation for Children class at our church. Topic...Advent. I'm doing a class in January also ( all the teachers take turns)...we all get to do a Commandment in January...2 or 3 per night. Guess what mine is...the 9th...You Shall Not Covet Your Neighbour's Wife....that should be a hoot!! The kids...all 19 of them range in age from 7 to 13!!! This Thursday and Friday....the dreaded parent teacher interviews....not as nerve wrecking as doing the report cards...but nevertheless!! I still have to write out my opening comments! You'll laugh...report cards went home with the kids on Monday (yesterday), and I overheard one gr 4 say to the other "My teacher did sort of ok"....so I corrected him and said..."You mean YOU did sort of ok". Man!! Ya...don't study...and it's OUR fault!!
Had pork chops tonight...haven't had THAT in a long while...with potatoes and beets! Sorry to hear about the run around with your stove....it's always something isn't it!!! Was VERY warm here today... 60F, with rain and lightning in the afternoon. Never you mind...we'll have it freezing before you know it lol!!
Take care my friend!! All the best with tomorrow's TOPS!
luv and baskets of hugs....linda
