HI Marie - I'm back from vacation -- which we enjoyed tremendously. We still insist we are likely to retire in the Outer Banks (if we ever retire) -- we love it there. How are things going with you? How is Ed's situation going? I've been having good BG lately -- awoke at 87. I swear there is no rhyme or reason to it sometimes.
Thanks Marie. I plan on staying in doors. Although it is not as hot in MS as it is in other parts of the country. I used to live near Philly and 105 up there is really something. We saw it a few times in our 12+ years up there but not often. So hunker down in the AC there in VA and stay cool. Sparky
Good Morning,Marie. Thank God there is Peace in Seagate this morning. Russ is so happy he finally saw a doctor other thn the eye doctor and was told to STOP THE COUMADAN. His eye was black like jelly. The news no nose surgery was good news. I am sitting here with my chef's hat on waiting for Tom to come back from rynning..in this hat..and he will want a Reed;'s breakfast. I am feeling fine. How are things with you? You feeling better? Your readings? Any tomatos on your plants yet? I so hope Ed will be called in for an interview. It sounds like a good fit for hi, Take good care of yourself and stay cool. Another wicked day promised. Take good care. I care. POPS
Reed, I went and read what you wrote to Marie. That is wrong what that head nurse said. I hope she gets fired or at least reprimanded. I am sorry for the scare for you and Russ and also for the messed up answer you got. I am glad he pursued the problem.
I went to the hosoital with another friend today. She was having a colonoscopy and wanted me to come with her.
My blood sugar was 79 this morning and was 111 at lunch. So today I am having a good day. Hugs, Marylou
Hello Marie. You will not believe this. I think heads will roll. The doctor was not there yesterday.One of the girls said stay on the same dose. Russ called this morning got the head nurse and she texted the doctor in Atlanta. He called Russ. He said he was not told how bad it was. STOP THE COUMADAN and see Dr. Farhat. I want you tested 3 or 4 times this weekend. This could have been real trouble. You do not fool with Coumdan, He is at Dr. Fahats now.
GOOD NEWS, Dr Gross removed the stitches from Russ's hand. He examind the nose again. I am sure I got it all you do not have to go through that procedure. A 100 pound weight off his shoulders,
Thanks so much for your interest and support. HUGS,Reed
Good Morning,Marie,. My name was not in the obituaries so I guess I am living. The headline in the same paper said HAZY HOT AND HUMID for today. Russ;'s eye still looks bad. I cannot believe that doctor kept him on the same dose of COUMADAN. My cavity was under a crown. Did that ever hurt. My jaw is sore. How did Ed do with the phone interview? I hope he gets the position. Russ gets his stitches out today. Pleased you got home safe and sound,. I guess you just have to live with it. My redings are ok. Tom comes tonight will give me a breather. I did not hear from Doris I hope she is ok. Take good care of uourself and a big hello to Ed. I am surpriused I am the only one from here donated to Brian's Marathon for cancer survivors. My typing is awful. HUGS,Reed
hi Marie! what a great Idea! I think I went ot that fair half a million years ago. If I can get organized I'll try to come up to Sussex, I love it up there anyway, High Point has a special place in my heart and my Mom has a piece of propertyin wantage that needs an occaisional look, and YES I'd love the chance to meet you in person =).
In 1988 my family and I started doing reenactment camping. The period was called the "fur Trade" in most history books. The camp emulates something called rendezvous that was held for all the free fur trappers and occured between 1640 and 1840. The first two years, we camped "modern" in a pop-up camper we owned. In 1990 we made the big jump to camping "primitive". Canvas tent, cooking over an open fire and no phones, computers, radios.
It was my wife and I and then the 3 rugrats so we needed a good size tent. We had a 10'x16' was tent with a 12' dinning fly off the front. You could get pictures of this thing from outer space.
Well, with a tent that size the poles had to be cut in half and then put togther and braced once we arrived at the camp site. I was never much at wood working and the first two times I put this tent up a storm came through at night with high winds and broke one of my tent poles. Both times this happened the same person was camped next to me. He was a retired navy boswains mate and it was him and I in the wind, rain, thunder and hail splicing this pole back together.
That second time (it was about 6 months apart) he just came out of his tent and proclaimed that I was a "broken pole son-of-a-bitch!" He called me that for the remainder of the week and it became my camp nickname. So I just use it.
Hope this met with your expectations cause it is 100% true.
Marie. Russ's internist is only a heart doctor BUT for serious stuff he sends Russ to a very well known and respected crdiologist. Russ went to his PCP with the eye and the test. It was 6. He just cakked and said stay on same dose and see me in a week/ Russ is in bed absolutely exhausted. Tom comes tomorrow thank God. Tom has applied for a grant if he wins he will work in St. Augustine and will live with us. That would be a great blessing. I got right down on my knees to St. Rita for Ed..here is hoping...I use all those products. I had a filling to be done under a crown ouch. Glad you go there and back ok. POPS/Dad
Glad you're OK ♥ If you ever want to practice your French....I'd be delighted to oblige :)
My husband doesn't speak it...soother than at school or with my siblings, I don't get much of a chance. Our own kids are more comfortable with Eng. as that's mostly what we spoke at home due to hubby!!
