Good Morning,Kathy. Things not good here. Russ still coughing grown very feeble cannot walk. I am making him use my 2nd walker. All we would need now is a fall. What a change in the weather. 40 degrees and a very strong wind that makes it feel colder. Glad Tom is here. Russ listens to him. How are things with you? Is it still cold there? Make sure you stay warm in the house and if you go out. My insurance wants me to do mail order. How many times do I have to say NO. Our mail box is way down at the Community House you must drive and we do not go every day. Not much else going on.Did get the laundry done.Paid the bills. You take very good care of yourself. I care. HUGS,Reed
Good Morning,Kathy. You and I must be related/ I am always misplacing my glasses. I slept until 4 tried to go back no luck so I got up at 5. Russ has to go for his COUMADAN draw this morning. The nurse does it. Then she talks to the doctor and calls about 3 with instructions. I will ride with him sit in the car as we need to go to the lawyer. I was mad as a hornet. My speaker was a NO SHOW. I had to come up with something for 40 minutes. I discussed the new computer Handifork that reminds you to eat slowly and records data. We have an added problem 8 weeks early POLLEN> the allergists cannot keep up with the patients. Be careful when you go out ice pellets they must hurt. I hope it gets warmer there soon. Have a very nice day. Keep warm. HUGS,Reed
Good Morning,Kathy. I had a much better night. I took my sleep aid earlier. Russ had a good night too. Guess we are back on track. It is damp here this morning but heading for 80's again.TOPS today. Chico was at the door when I got up. He is a character. I have not been out of the house since Sunday. These colds and coughs last 18 days. I better tell my kissing ladies to kiss my ear. LOL> Hope all is well with you. Dress warmly if you go out. I will tell you what Crystals are all about. Take care. A big hug. Reed
Hi Kathy, thanks for the message. I lived in uptown for years and worked there also. I'm. Now by Southdale. I feel very overwhelmed right now. Lots to take in. I have another doctors appointment tomorrow. I get to learn how to prick my own fingers for the first time!
Good Morning,Kathy. I have been up since 3. I just could not sleep. I cannot blame it on Russ as he had a good night. It was nice and quiet so I got a lot of paperwork done. It is going to ber 82 and humid today. My BG 108. TOPS tomorrow. I have a paid speaker. How are you feeling? Do you feel like your old self yet? Is it cold there? Stay warm..do not overdo get Valerie to fuss over you. Have a wonderful day. A BIG HUG,Reed
He;;p Kathy. It was good to hear from you. That often happens to me. I write and poof the thing goes off into cyber space/ Kind of depressed today. Russ's constant coughing is drivingm e NUTS. He has every pi;; and syrip lmpwn to man. I think I will scare him telling him the Old Mr. Bush had a cough and landed in the hospital in Nov and got out today. Maybe he will see a doctor. This weather crazy 80's in Jan not healthy. I see parts of CA got a cold snap. Russ woke me at 1A< we had a cip of tea but I could not get back to sleep. It has been a long day. Did you get your COUMADAN straightened out? Russ goes for his COUMADAN check the 17th. Take good care of yourself. Keep warm. HUGS,Reed
hi Kathy! hope you're doing ok. I've been gone a few days, last installment of cleaning out my mom's apartment. I wish I could continuee the cleaning frenzy to my own house. got some nice little things from my childhood, a beautiful portrait of me at about 10 years old. don't know where I'm going to put this stuff.
Good Morning,Kathy. I have not heard from you in three days. PLEASE do not tell me you have had a relapse. I really worry when I do not hear. Did you ever get the drawer for the COUMADAn. I know you were mad as a hornet. Heavy for here turns to sun and 80 too much for January. I slept until 7:30 so that is a good sign. Take good care of yourself. Keep warm let me know what is going on. HUGS,Reed
Hello Kathy. How are things with you? Did you ever get your COUMADAN test? I went to drug store 2 items doctoir had not called in yet? Wht don;t they answer the fax when they get it. Now I have to make another trip. Russ's nose came out great. He has to shave it. The surgeon said the hair roots will die but for now when you shave shave your nose LOL. Can you believe it is 80 degrees here? This weather is crazy. Tom is here so Reed;s Diner is open. Made a nice meat loaf last night.I bought WHISKERS TREATS for Chico. He comes in the house ignores us goes to the counter where I have them sits stares meows until I give him some. Have you been out and about? Be careful. I do not want you to get this stuff that is going around. Boston declared a state of emergency. Take good care keep warm drink fluids. HUGS,Reed
Hi Kathy, OMG, I read your note on Reed's page about the blood draws. You must be livid. I had a ton of blood draws too and sometime last week I had about twenty tests taken, no kidding. Then I got a letter saying that I need to change providers and go outside the military. I am so happy because really the military is awful. I will see my new doctor on Monday. He is my son's doctor, so we already know him, so all should be good. I am finally feeling a bit like my old self again, only better. Thanks to all that medical abuse I lost over 20 pounds and counting. I went through my closet and found a bunch of my skinny clothes and guess what? They fit! Now I have a free new wardrobe. I hope you are feeling bettter. I am so happy that you are feeling good enough to write on Reed's page so we know what is up with you. I am back at work and that is going really well. Just have to go to bed about 830 every night to be functioning for the next morning. TGIF tomorrow. It is nice here, not cold with a coat and gloves on. I started to walk again. I get out of the car right after work and walk around the neighborhood. They finally put a new bench by the little lake behind my apartment. Now I can go sit on that and pant a while after the walk. Miss you a lot. Feel better soon. Lots.
Good evening,Kathy. Busy day. It rained and I thought a lot would stay home we had 30 plus a visitor from NC. I gained a pound. Russ said that removing the stitches was terrible really hurt. Nose looks good goes back in a month. Been getting thingsz together for some legal work. I was s tired we had scrambled eggs with pre-cooked bacon cut up. Tom has a new office and his name on the door. He feels like a kid in the toy store. He has worked hard. Did you get the blood draw found or do you have to go again? ometimes Russ goes in a week sometime a month he sees the gal for the draw on the 17th. What have you been up too today? Tomorrow I must do laundry. Have a good evening. HUGS,Reed
Hello Kathy. Busy day. Things are looking up. Russ slept right through the night without getting up and I did too. He has been polishing things decorating. I have been busy typing last week's TOPS minutes...Secretary out AGAIN and doing the Agenda. Just got an email from Tom and a copy of the letter. The Dean is recommending Tom for a full Professorship. He is on Cloud 9. Not a very pleasant day weatherwise. Dark and dreary. It is so good to see Russ more like himself. He gets the stitches out tomorrow afternoon. How are things with you? Did you go out today? We are so lazy we did not even go for the mail. Nothing like ordering in advance...Tom wants my Meatloaf Thursday night. Take good care of yourself and keep warm. Russ has started reading his nbig pile of books. HUGS,Reed
HI Kathy- Sounds like you are back in the groove of doing various activities, like movies and shopping. When I see the weather for Minneapolis I think of you, it really does get cold in your area. Here we are having a week of Spring. Temps to be in the 50's most of the week. How are you feeling ? I hope well. Take care and don't slip on the ice. Cat ( Susan )
Hello Kathy. Not feeling aces today. Coughing a little and have a big head. I think that might mean rain. Poor Russ wandered all night and does not remember it. Still coughing his head off. I told him to call the doctor but you know the old saying you can lead a horse to water... He thinks when stitches out on Wed and he is off the antibiotics he will be better. Dark and dreary here. Thank the good lord we are out of the Christmas mode for another year. Gosh we have stuff. Tom back to work. We will not see him until Thursday. They are redoing his office and he says it is a mess. Take good care of yourself and in you go out dress warmly. Big Hug,Reed
Hey Kiddo....calamine lotion is great for itching...when going to bed. Other than than....from the days of our daughter's allergic reactions/sensitivities take some vit. C. Check it out online. I'll try to get a site...but don't hold your breath. Might just be best if you google "Allergic reactions and vitamin C" and....if I did not comment before....BRAVA on being a featured member!!!
