Catch Up

Goodmorning all,

I apologize for neglecting to post more frequently. I thought I had better add a quick catch up post before someone thinks I dropped off the face of the earth.

The road trip was a success meaning I got us there and back safely. We even stopped at the big rest stop between Lawrence and topeka and had a snack and collected rocks. We stopped on the way there and Raven found a heart shaped rock for grandma so we had to stop and look for more on the way back. Besides by then both bobbie and I were needing to stand and stretch.

The Dr. did not think Raven has a thyroid condition. If she did or develops a problem it will be hypo. He was concerned with her weight/size and through a lengthy question and answer session he determined they are eating the right foods but portion control is the problem. Bobbie promises to work on that with her and will learn to say no to seconds or bigger portions. The Dr. explained to Raven what a single serving is and she seemed to understand. She was proud of how she told the Dr. what she ate and when and what her snack foods are.

Bobbie has been having migraines again and they did a brain scan just to be sure and it turned out just fine. Still she wants it to go to the surgeon that removed her tumor for a second opinion and I don't blame her for that. I told her to go and sign papers for the hospital to have permission to send the records to the surgeon. Any more with the privacy act laws it takes an act of congress just for doctors to share information. It's sad it has come to that....

As for me the trip to the zoo was fun but my right knee is still swollen. I am able to do most of the rehab routine and am praying the swelling reduces some before the 7th so I can still get my Synvisc shots. I am so hoping they work to build cartilage and reduce pain and not that I will be let down. You can pray to for me, all of us, if you wish. I do believe in the power of prayer. I've been doing a lot of that lately. I've been revisited by the panic attacks demon again this week too. If you take medication for panic attacks don't leave home without it. Geez! Life! Sometimes it's great, other times it's ridiculous.

Hope your week has gone well. Oh, and welcome to October. It's been chilly here in the mornings and warmer in the afternoons, perfect sweater or long sleeve weather. I love it. Now if only the trees would become colorful and not just go from green to brown. I love the colors of fall. Don't you?

Be Happy, Be Healthy, Be Safe,

P.S. I'll take pictures of the rocks this weekend and share with you. We are painting them. Even Bobbie is enjoying this little crafty adventure.

It's good to catch up on your life. I am sure you feel a lot better since the good outcomes from the doctors. It's good to hear such positive results. I do hope they find out what is causing Bobbie's migraines.

As for your weather, today I was out and about and it was downright HOT. I was wearing sleeveless top and shorts and flip flops and I was still burning up. I can't wait for the cooler weather we're supposed to have next week.

Do you think I'm an ingrate? Well, I would think so if I were you. You sent me a lovely gift not long ago and I never thanked you for it. Know why? I just got it!! You can read all about it in today's post (Oct 2) on my blog, if you like. I want to thank you in advance, though.
