Nancy still getting checked

Yesterday we were out the door again, but not early for Nancy had to have an x-ray for her  Nephrologist.  She was going to have her blood drawn at Lab Corp but we got there late because we didn't know that they closed at 3:00.
They are open today until noon so we will have it done today.

  We stopped to eat at Frank's where we have not eaten since he moved to a different place that is just down the road from where he used to be.  The building is much larger and he still has an over flowing crowd each day.

We got there around 3:45 when there were not many people.   Even though he has a large place the prices are still the same.  I had two grilled pork chops with fries and slaw. But first I started off with a cup of clam chowder and finished with a desert all of that for $9.49.

By the time we finished our meal the place was full and people waiting for a table.

Today is another college basketball game day so after bringing Nancy back from her time at Lab Corp I will settle in for the day to watch the games.  That is unless something else comes up.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Nancy getting checked again

Monday Nancy had to go in for a Nuclear Stress Test at 1:00.  The technician said it would take three hours to complete.  All of these test are the result of her legs that had swollen up and the Nephrologist wanted to make sure that it wasn't her heart that was causing the problem.

With Nancy going to be tied up for three hours I was out of there to do some thing that I had to do.
I then went back to pick Nancy up twenty minutes early but it took three and a half hours so I had to wait another hour before she was finished.

Since Nancy didn't have anything to eat from the night before and it was 4:30 I stopped at a Burger King to get the two sandwich for $6,00 special.
Nancy had a Crispy Chicken with onion rings and I had the Big Whopper with fries.
We brought the food home to eat and relax after Nancy's busy day which left her more than tired.

Yesterday I spent most of the day working on a small project that Nancy has been wanting me to do.
It doesn't matter how many things that you are working on there are many more to do,  especially if your full timing rig is sixteen years old.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

A few things done

Friday was fairly a busy day. 

First thing I did was go to Home Depot to buy a new sprayer for the kitchen faucet.
It has had a slow leak for quite some time and I tried everything I know and nothing would stop the leak.  It was in the sprayer its self  so nothing but to buy a new one.

After getting the faucet in good working order it was time for doing the laundry.
We had several loads to do.  Nancy said she felt good enough to help me so off we went.

We must have been a sight walking down to the laundry room.  Nancy walking with a cane in one hand and a bag with the clothes hangers in the other.  Me with the sore shoulder that I still can't lift much weight and carrying the laundry basket under one arm.
We were two tired old people by the time we got back home, but we got finished.

Saturday Nancy had a really good breakfast to start my day.
I had two eggs with diced sweet mini peppers and diced onions, a diced fried potato, three slices of bacon, a biscuit and a cup of coffee.
Now that was a breakfast to get a fella going.  But wait I wasn't going anywhere? 
Remember it was Saturday and that means College Basketball Games day.  And what a day it was with the day full of upsets.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Good tasting meal

We were out the door again yesterday a little early because Nancy needed to have some blood drawn that her Urologist had ordered up.

We went to Lab Corp which is only a few miles down the road from where we are staying.
By the time we got back home she was more than ready to have her breakfast.

The mail person brought the propane grill that I had ordered from Amazon so I put it all together.
I always buy the small grills that last for a year because they are cheap and small so it doesn't take up much space.
Later on in the evening I took a small steak out of the refrigerator to spice up and put on the grill.  While I was doing that Nancy was spicing up some fresh vegetables and cooking them in the small
table top oven.
The meal was really good and filling that put a pleasant smile on both of our faces.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Motor Home Mural

Nancy and I are still hanging in here. Nancy had to have a sonogram on her legs Monday because her Urologist wanted to make sure her heart was not giving her the problems she has been having with her legs swelling.  The Urologist has .a few more test for her to be done.

It seems as though all we have been doing this winter is having doctor appointments. I guess you got to do what ever it takes in order to keep on going.

I have been looking at the back of this motor home where a guy has been doing this mural for the past week.  He is only on it for a short time at a stretch, not full time.  He may do this part time and works somewhere else full time.

My shoulder is still a little sore from the surgery that I had a week from last Monday.
I'm  anxiously waiting to get started on my rehab which starts this coming Thursday.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

The Super Bowl.

Saturday was my usual Saturday in that I was watching the College Basketball Games for most of the day.  While watching the games I was enjoying hot dogs and chips.
Some games went as expected and other games where big upsets.  Now I like those upset games but not when the team I'm rooting for is the loser.

Our friends Sam and Carolyn came over for a visit and we were glad to see them and catch up on a little news.

I will be doing today watch a million other people will be doing and the will be watching The Super Bowl. 
I don't watch NFL very much but I do watch the Super Bowl.   The same thing with baseball about the only games I watch is the World Series.

I didn't buy anything extra to eat while watching the game but I'm sure with all the food we have here I will not go hungry.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Doctor follow-up

I went to see the Orthopedic Surgeon yesterday for a follow-up.  The stitches were removed by a young man working for the doctor and then he put some tape on each wound the he said will fall of itself in a week or so.
When the doctor came in he asked me where my sling was and I told him it was home the I haven't been wearing it all the time.
He went over what he did at the time of the operation, I asked him about the bicep and he said I had worn out my bicep.  He then showed me a picture of my bicep that looked like a pile of straw.
He did say that he attached what he could back to the bone. I asked if I would be able to worked the muscle back up?  The answer was I could somewhat but the muscle would have no form to it since it had been  shredded so much.  
I will start rehab in a couple of weeks doing the motion exercise.  Then two weeks of the strengthening  exercises.
He said it would be ok to drive and also don't try to do too much until I start the rehab.

So I guess the fun is about to begin.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
