Hi, friends!

We got great news about GS's MRI - NO tumor! emoticon He has been ill since - childhood stuff and that necessitated an ER visit after an UC visit re his oxygen level. But still...NO tumor! emoticon

I am giving my last two of three finals this morning, which means there will be a real time crunch to get them graded and grades done by Monday's deadline. I prefer it when the schedule has me giving finals earlier in the week, but of course it wouldn't be fair to do that all the time.

I will go back to work a month from today, I believe. It will go quickly. I have a Want To Do list, but I suspect there will be some Have To Do items as well.

My name is Tammy and I live in SW Missouri.

Red Lobster - I don't go very often, but I love it! My first experience was at age 16 or 17 with a great aunt that took me to Springfield from our little town 1.5 hours away. We went shopping and I got a new outfit and we went to Red Lobster to eat. Red Lobster is very special to me for that reason. Something that I found interesting - I think the Springfield, MO is far better than the Pensacola, FL one! My DS and I went once when we were there visiting - I couldn't believe it wasn't fabulous.


Joyce, hope DH has been continuing to improve.


GS and DS and DIL are in St. Louis early this morning for an MRI for his NF1 diagnosis. Fortunately, they didn't have to drive from their Springfield home - they stayed with my youngest SD on the south edge of the city. I'm not sure how far away that was from the medical center that they go to. I think it is Children's, but it might be Wash U. I am hoping it will serve as an unnecessary baseline in the future and is not a certainty that there is already tumor activity. I used to think that I couldn't be any more concerned than I was about my kids from their chronic illness diagnoses; I have now found that is not the case.

This is the last day of classes for the fall semester and finals begin for students tomorrow. I give these finals on Thursday and Friday mornings and grades are due by 10 a.m. on Monday. I have fingers crossed that nothing in my personal life throws off my time schedule there.

Hope all are well.

Hubby is much better but today is last dose of antibiotic so....we will see what happens then.

I have 4 days off work...relaxing, having outing with church ladies at Red Lobster (!!)...getting back to some Christmas sewing projects.

Glad you are home safely.

We had a safe trip up and back from St. Louis on Saturday - that is always a blessing.

I look back at the craziness of the last 24 hours and I KNOW that God has been with me.

(Craziness: taking food to church, meeting children at church; taking husband to ED; clocking in at work 90 minutes early; having positive interactions with patients and families at work; being kept safe while driving; and on and on) I am loved and protected by they Creator of the Universe!!!!

This ED visit was because he took the fast acting insulin in the long acting dose....too much insulin needs IV drip of dextrose... The infection from last 2 weeks was surgically removed and is better

Joyce, I hope DH has some relief soon, which in turn will help you to have some. You are right, it is very draining to be a caregiver.

We don't actually live at Carthage - just south of Springfield a bit. It will still be a long travel day and I44 is NOT my favorite road in the world. However, it is a good thing to do and DH and I will try to make the best of it.

That will be a very long day with drive from Carthage to St Louis and back. Be safe.

My hubby has been sick for 3 weeks and the infection is worse now. It really is emotionally draining to be a 'caregiver'. He has twice asked me to take him to ER and I have refused, but that definitely takes an emotional toll. More Dr appointments Monday so perhaps he will get the help he needs.

Almost Thanksgiving! It seems that November has gone by in a blur. Of course, I guess for me it has.

I believe I now have all the documents in order that our lawyer requested to get reimbursed as much as possible from my brother's small estate. He had been disabled for about ten years and didn't have much after his divorce, either, so little was kept up and it wasn't worth much anyway. We will see if his adult yet estranged children will sign some quit claim deeds or if it will all go on longer than necessary. So much sadness all around...I DO wish he had quit smoking, had moderately drank if he was going to, and had tried to get along with his now adult children...

We will have a small Thanksgiving lunch with DD and SIL - DS has to be at work by 10 a.m. that day. DIL and GS will be at her dad's. Then next Saturday, DH and I will drive to St. Louis for the day to see stepdaughter's new home and eat her Thanksgiving meal with her kids and their families. We will go up and come back the same day.

Hi, Joyce and others!

I've been MIA because my DB unexpectedly passed away on 11/2 while at my sisters' in Pensacola. Since then, it has been a matter of getting arrangements made, navigating through the mess that can happen when there are no resources and you also have very angry adult children due to divorce/alcoholism/embarrassment, etc. So far I have managed to still continue losing weight, but some days it is all I can do not to just sit down and bawl.

And then I was given a surprise. Friday afternoon I came out of the bathroom and found my Boss looking for me. She introduced me to Eric in a suit from Administration.

He gave me a tote bag and invitation to a luncheon saying I had been awarded the Partner/Spirit Award for 2019. 3 awards given yearly in our 12,000 employee company.

For the extra sewing I do for the psych units....Wow!
I believe one of the gifts is a week-end hotel stay in Branson.

Joyce, I know just what you mean. I need a lot of "recharge" time these days. It sounds like you are looking for the blessings in it.

Our trip to Branson did indeed happen, but it happened differently that our plans. We went down to winterize our fifth wheel and discovered it would need to be pulled out from storage. We decided to stay there for a couple of days and so got to visit with our friends more than just the lunch that we had arranged. It worked out well and was a good thing for us to do. The wife of the couple has early Alzheimer's and I could tell a bit of a difference from when we saw her 6? 8? months ago. She still functions very well. I am quite interested in the possible advances being made in the field.

My "Charitable Hours" are way over the top this month. I am feeling burned out and grumpy about 'doing for others'.
my goal is 12 hours a month and I did 10 hours during the first week of October

But, God has given me a working car....so I am transporting others in need.
And God has given me safe driving.

DH and I are going to Branson again today - it's nine days later lol. We are meeting friends who drove in for an event at our RV park. We will go to lunch late somewhere.

I am not looking forward to the cold rain in the forecast. I can do chilly, not a fan of chilly rain, though.

Hi, friends!

Joyce, I haven't been in my She Cave in ever so long...I miss it.

Elsie, sorry about not having the calm that you would like emoticon


Mine have been better with an addition to my BP meds. I kept wondering why everything was bothering me so badly, sleep was disrupted - I don't know why I was so surprised - it is exactly what happened a few years ago.


DH and I are going to Branson today - I have the day off. We are going to do some maintenance on the fifth wheel - small stuff that just needs to be done.

Joyce, did you have to adjust anything with your sewing machine? Needle? Tension?


Elsie, is all still calmer at your house?


I had my annual dr visit on Friday - it is time for me to rein myself in plus my meds will be changing until blood pressure is back under control. emoticon An interesting fact - the power went out while I was there and apparently a generator did not kick in...power was out for a couple of hours. emoticon I didn't wait that long. The dr was already visiting with me and knows my family cardio history...I doubt much would have changed if the power had remained on. She is sending lab work results in the mail as she would have done anyway.

Yesterday DH told me that he felt better than he had before the kidney stone business wtih all that followed after so that is very good.

It was cooler for a few days and that was very good.

Six weeks are down in the semester; ten to go and though I love teaching, that is still very good.

I see it has been a couple of weeks since I posted. DH had been released from the hospital after the kidney stents being taken out a few days earlier than usual. He has apparently healed as far that was concerned, but is now in and out of doctor's offices with some allergies/upper respiratory stuff. We have been in his pcp office/Urgent Care/ER/Hospital two or three times each of the past four weeks!

Sure good that he hadn't been ill much prior to this.

God's gift to you: a clean slate every day: your gift to God: what you put on that slate....

Most people watch what they eat from Christmas to New Year's when they should be watching what they eat from New Year's to Christmas


Do your best today; do better tomorrow

The more I sit...the hungrier I get!!!!!

To lose my seat, I must move my feet!!

Locking my keys in my car = NOT a good day.
...several helpful people who gave me a ride to work+++
...Yes, my spare key was in my work locker +++
...more helpful people who gave me a ride back to my car++++

Thank goodness the car was less than 2 miles from work so I didn't feel badly about requesting rides from 'strangers'
So Great to live in the Ozarks where so many people are good at heart

The stents are out and we are home. I left this morning to work - just one class and should be home by 10 - with DH reporting a pain level of a 2. Hopefully the oxy- will hold it there and we will soon be done with this bump in the road.

Elsie, glad to see you back...glad things have calmed some for you.

Joyce, loved the blog and loved your adoption story.

We are still encountering problems with DH's lithotripsy of last week - 2 trips to the ER [some of the staff is recognizing us now] and 1 direct admittance to the hospital and we MAY be getting some headway - his original urologist thinks there is spasming around one of the tubes that probably doesn't need to come out yet...I am at work to teach my early class and then we will see what needs to happen.

I am trying to get all the genealogy stories out of my head and down on paper/the cloud. I have just posted a blog on my second Gr Grandmother Susan Keller story.

At the time I found this story, I was a foster mother debating adoption of a sibling group. They would come from 4 foster homes to be raised together in our home. This story gave me courage to pursue that plan....This story had been lost for 160 years.

God brings us what we need, when it is needed.

Hi Elsie!! emoticon
There are only a couple "Races" I can do as I get a migraine if I get overheated.

Neon Nights...5K/mile walk raising money for NAMI (National Alliance for Mentally Ill) and specifically for Suicide Prevention.
Starts at 8 pm so that it is cooler. I will take a flash light. Several co-workers will be there.

Spent most of the night at the Mercy ER with DH - diagnosis of a small kidney stone on the left side which is moving and thus causing pain BUT a huge kidney stone on the right side was discovered that needs to be taken care of to prevent blockage. etc. The ER dr would have allowed DH to come home, but the urologist that he consulted with wanted him in the hospital, so that is where I left him to come home to take care of the pupppy/teach/go back. So that's an "all nighter" for me - I haven't done that in a very long time!

So sorry about the skin tear, Joyce...no fun, for sure.

I start the fall semester on Monday. I think I am ready, We shall see.

I've been in a weight loss challenge with my RV Enthusiasts team for a few weeks. I've lost between 5 and 10 pounds. I sure wish I had been "watching" all summer, but it is what it is.

What sweet outfits for the doll babies! I love them!

The rain enabled me to somewhat more easily pull weeds this morning. The small raised bed that I worked on last week has two of four areas planted with zucchini sprouts. I will give it until Wednesday and re-plant the other two areas. I am wondering whether to go ahead and plant one the two others that I have ready this Wednesday as well. I have a list of veggies that it is acceptable to go ahead and plant at this time. The next list will be emailed to me this weekend. They come every two weeks and are specific to our area. That cuts down on the research for me! LOL

DH has the Facett procedure done on his back midday tomorrow. He had it done about 18 months ago and did great for about three weeks and then thought it didn't help much. He has since decided that perhaps he expected too much the first time and that it actually did more than he thought. So we shall see...he's had some days of pretty bad back pain this summer, but it has been nothing like last summer, thank the good Lord.

Hope your hostessing/cooking went well, Joyce.

Elsie...hope you are well.

I had Grandma Duty on Thursday. That's always a good time. 😊

I'm looking forward to cooler temps.

Hosting snack at church after Baptism of my daughter's MIL. Cooking and Hostess are not my favorite things...give me something to sew any day!
But, I will succeed

Sorry to hear about the ongoing health difficulties.

About 65 attended Kids Sewing Day...I brought 4 grandchildren and it was exhausting!

DS is better with the addition of a steroid, but once it wears off, he is in pain again. He has been able to eat the past two days, which is good considering he had lost almost 20 pounds with whatever is going on. I think he will be having an upper scope in the near future.

I sure like to mark things off my To Do list as well, Joyce.

GS has been ill, DS has been having symptoms of ulcers and dealing with nausea, etc while trying to work and having a sick baby, and DH has had a return of his back pain...we WERE glad for some non-rainy days.
