Rain & Rain

Well we had rain almost all day yesterday. That with tornado warnings wasn't a good day to be out and with that I stayed inside most of the day.
It did clear up in the evening time with a little sun. I took the trash down to the dumpster and checked the mail. It still was not a good time to be out in the park. They were having a poker run here in the park. Can you imagine 20 or so golf carts running around in a park with little old ladies reading their clue sheets more than looking where they are going on the road. It just wasn't safe being out there. As far as I know no one got run over,just some close calls.
Today is the day I go to the doctor to see what he will do to the fluid sac on my knee.
Thanks for stopping in and have a great day.

Same O

If you like to watch tv this was a good weekend for you.
Saturday there was basketball games and yesterday it was basketball,golf and the big Nascar race at the Daytona Speedway. Then you could finish it up with the Oscars. I'm sure there was a lot more to watch but I think those were the main ones. Nancy likes to watch the Oscars,but I don't think she cares who wins. She likes to see the gowns and dresses that the ladies wear.
I'm the only one going to see the doctor this week. I got a fluid filled sac on knee cap. My regular doctor has drained it twice and he recommended another doctor to maybe take the sac out.
Other than that everything is the same around here.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

The appointment

Thursday I took Nancy in for her appointmet with the Nephrologist(kidney specialist). She asked Nancy how she was feeling and if she had been cutting down on her potassium,Nancy told her she was. Then they went over the bloodwork sheet that Nancy had done. Her electrolites had dropped which was good and also her potassium level was down 3 points. Nancy needs her potassium level down to the number 2 and she will be able to have the cardiac catheterization. Something about if its too high the kidneys won't clear the dye that they use during the procedure.
Yesterday Nancy said she needed to get out of the house so we went to Walmart to do some shopping. By the time we got back home Nancy was exhausted. The Nephrologist told her that she may have some blockage going into her kidneys and she would tell the Cardiologist to check when he is doing the cardiac chatheterization.
These Ibis were out in the lake feeding.
We had a nice snset the other evening.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Another doctor appointment

Doing the normal things,whatever is normal. Speaking of normal,have you noticed that the things normal nowadays was not so normal back in the days past. Oh well don't get me started on that stuff.
Nancy and I have seen the doctors more this season than the other years combined  since I retired in 2000. Maybe it could be we are getting older. Oh please tell me it isn't so!  Speaking of which Nancy has anappointment with the kidney doctor today. We are just waiting for the day when one of the doctor will tell us what the problem is rather than adding or changing her medication. Until then.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Busy day

Yesterday I was busy most of the day. I started out by going to the barbershop the first thing in the morning. Then I carried out the flowers that I brought in the night before so they ould not freeze. Also set the tomato plants back out the I put under the back roof of the house. I did my usual stop by the large dumpster where everyone takes their unwanted furniture appliances and other things they don't need anymore. Some things are really good especially when someone buys one of the park models and they throw away whats inside and buy new things. I did good yesterday someone threw away and old dometic rv fridge like the one we have in our motorhome. I says to myself oh boy some more parts. If you remember back this past summer my motorhome fridge went out and I had a circuit board that I used from a such a discarded one years before. Well now I have another spare plus more parts,maybe $200-$250 in parts.
I vacuumed the rugs for Nancy as I always do because of her bad back. It seems as though every time I turned around there was something to do.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Lots of rain

It rained all night wednesday and all day yesterday. The temperature yesterday started at 68 and fell down to 61. That with a cool breeze blowing made for a cold damp day. You know the kind that chills you all day long.
The weather lady says no rain today and maybe will will see a little sunshine.
Nancy had some medicine do for refills so I talked her into going with me and also going out for dinner. I always buy her a box of chockolates,but she is trying to get her potassium level down so she said no chockolates this time. She is trying very hard and a lot of things she likes to eat she is cutting out.
Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a great day.

Hanging around

Sorry,so long not posting.  Nancy did go to see the cardiologist and he was surprised to see her?  It seems as though there was a mix up in her sheduling. When she was supposed to have her cardiac catheterization and that was called off,being as efficient as they are they had the appointment for a three week follow up before they did the procedure. So it is still a wait and see.
I myself went to the dermatologist to get checked over since it has been around five years that I had a skin cancer on my back removed. The  dermatologist found a couple of place that looked like he should take a biopsy which he did.
Today I took Nancy to Great Clips for a long overdue haircut.  Other then that we are just hanging around rather loosely.

Thanks for stopping by and have yourself a great day.

Growning tomatoes

I started  if you are not going to write something? But why have a blog if you are not going to write anything?  Nancy is still feeling puny,so I went to the store myself this morning to do the shopping. That shopping cart looked kind of empty with out a bunch of lotions and makeup in it.
today will of course be my day in front of the tv to watch the college basketball games.
I have been doing a little spring cleaning around the outside of the place.
I found out that hanging baskets are good for something besides flowers.
I also found out as the plant growns and the tomatoes get bigger that there is more weight on the basket and it will eventually fall. Don't ask me how I know this. I grew these tomatoes from seeds that I saved from our travels this pasted summer.                                                                                           Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Doctors Drama

Well folks just hanging loose hoping to hear something new concerning Nancys problems. She went to the kidney specialist(which is a lady doctor)monday morning. the lady doc told her the her potassium level was too high  and took her off of a couple of medicines. Its really very frustrating for Nancy the way the doctors are juggling her medications around. The kidney doctor did say her kidneys may be somewhat damaged. The doctor didn't tell us if Nancys kidneys were ok to do the cardiac catheterization,she just said to tell the cardiologist to call her. That will be monday when Nancy has an appointment with him.
All I can say is stay tuned in for this doctors drama.

Thanks for stopping in and have a great day.

Nothing new

Yesterday my friend Sam and I went to the Church rummage sale on route 52. They had everything from furniture to glassare,tools electronics,you name it they had it. Sam bought a couple of small items,but I came away empty handed. I didn't see anything I needed or wanted.
Today will be the same as every saturday watching the college bastball games.
It is just not our usual thing here this season with Nancys problems. We are hoping that the docs will find the problem soon and we can do our thing of getting out to do our walking. We sure miss our walks in the parks.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
