Thanks! Sorry I haven't had a lot of time to be on here still. Work was supposed to be slowing down, but it doesn't seem like it, at least not yet.

My O.T. & my cardiovascular appts that I was supposed to go to at the beginning of the month all rescheduled on me at the last minute, so I haven't had them yet.

I did get to go to two appts for PT last week and will be going again this Thursday and Friday. I couldn't get away to spread this week’s appts out better. My right torso side is doing much better with the PT. Still some issues with it, but so much better than before. My right upper thigh and groin area though hasn't seen much improvement yet. But it was already doing a little better with what I was doing for it at home before I even got to have my first appt with them. I am hoping it will continue to do better as time goes. But for now it really doesn't like it when I have to drive a lot or walk a lot. So last week I had to do a lot of driving and walking for work on both Thursday and Friday, so that didn't help it. But she did give me some good advice that might help me in the long run. She was telling me to pay more attention to how I am sitting in the truck, at home and at work. That it is not good to have your knees up higher than your bottom. And unfortunately I noticed after she said it that the seat in my truck has the bottom part higher where your knees would be and where your bottom would be is lower. They angled the bottom part of the seat so you are tipped back a little. And the back of the seat is tipped back some too, and there is no adjustment to either of them. So I tried putting a couple of towels in there folded up to sit on, and it helped a little but didn't raise me up enough. I had a big thick coat shoved behind the seat, I took it out and sat on it folded up and it helped more. So I need to look around for a wedged pillow to sit on to even the seat out. After that I noticed that a lot of the chairs I usually sit in at work and home are raised up more at the knees too, so that you are reclining/or tipped back some. So I will be looking for wedge pillows to deal with that issue and that might really help me out. Also the chair I sit in at home and at work to do computer work have arm rest that make it so I can pull up as close as I would like, or should be to do my computer work. So I end up stretching my arms out, or sitting on the edge of the seat a lot. Which is not helping me at all. I really hate my chair I have at home. My old rolling chair didn't have any arm rest on it so it was better. But the cushion part of the seat just wasn't as cushy as it got old. This one I have now, was a used chair that was just given to me. It is so old now that it is just not cushy either. I piled some bed pillows in it long ago trying to make it more comfortable, but it really didn't work. I am just going to go buy myself a new chair, and will make sure that the bottom part is really cushy, but not higher at the knee area then the bottom area. And hopefully that will help. I spend so much time at home working on the computer, so I want to get a chair that will be more comfortable and better for me. Not sure what I will do about the chair at work yet? Maybe I will look for another cheaper priced one for work too?

Tomorrow I am going to have that first visit with the cardiovascular doctor. I have no idea what they are going to do or want of me.

And then the next week I will finally go to the O.T. doctor, but they have already told me that their referral is only for my right hand and arm, which is almost like normal again, so not sure what is going to happen with that one. It might be just a fast visit and no need for further visits, unless my primary doctor and the insurance decide to let them deal with my thigh and groin area too.

I was supposed to go back to my primary doctor today, but she rescheduled too. They called me last week and said she was going to be away until June. So now I will see her after the start of June to go over all this stuff.

All my best to you all always, Janette

Our new tax company is getting all moved in and seems off to a good start. Especially since they still haven't even met the boss yet, they have just talked over the phone and emails from what I gathered. They seem really nice. They had a client walk in for them this morning before they were in the office, but I just called them on their cell phone and they told him to come back later that they would be in the office in an hour and be there until around 6 pm today. They seem nice enough and friendly each time I see them and talk to them. The wife was joking with me this morning that I am going to pick up Spanish with them in the office. I told her that is fine with me. That it has been so long ago since I took any classes in it that I only remember a few words if I hear them or see them written. I told them that I would just be in and out of the office this week at least. I told the wife she was welcome to use my desk if she wanted as the client that came to see them early in the morning had come back and was in the office with her husband. And she was trying to call their clients that usually come in for their taxes in early January to let them know of their move. So while her husband was with the client the wife came out and sat in our waiting room across from my desk. And I wasn't even sitting at my desk today, I was in the back room at my boss's computer. So I didn't see any reason why she couldn't make use of my big desk if she wanted, especially since I wasn't staying in the office long today anyways and wasn't expecting any clients of our own to come in. I showed them how to turn the big screen TV in our waiting room on and to get it to Pandora so they could listen to music if they wanted. I even set up their favorite channel on it called "Pink Martini", they said since I listen to the Dean Martin or Sinatra type stations the most that they thought I would like it too. And I do, I even added it to my Pandora on my home computer.

I was in and out of the office all last week. Worked Monday morning, Wed afternoon and Friday morning in the office and the rest of the time I was working at home on bookkeeping. I was even doing bookkeeping this weekend and Monday.

I was expecting my boss back today, but now he is not coming in until the end of the week. So since he wasn't coming in today after all he told me to only work half day in the office. I get to work on bookkeeping at home again this week and only go in when clients need me. So I will go in sometime tomorrow to get sales tax info from one client when he makes his way down to us. Friday I might end up going in to see the boss, and or to run a payroll. Then next week I will probably start having to spend more time in the office during the day time.

I hope all is going well with you all! Take care

Supposed to rain all day and evening here in Escondido, CA. Glad I get to work from home to doing bookkeeping. And luckily it should be clearer after today. We need the rain, but I would prefer it overnight so I don't get drenched trying to run to work and running errands. And don't like it so heavy that it is hard to see where you are driving.

Keep warm and have a great day and weekend.

Sorry I have just been swamped with work lately, so I haven't been able to get in here as much.

I got drenched Monday a couple of times loading and unloading, and then reloading and unloading stuff into my truck for work. Then I had to go up to the northeast part of Escondido to see a client and the rain decided to come down harder just as I got on the freeway. It was hard to see in front of me, so I just kept my distance from the other vehicles and went slower to where I was going. I was glad to get back home and change clothes. I had to do work from home for several hours after that too.

Yesterday I had to go into work for a bit and run some more errands for work, but luckily I didn't have to bring a lot with me that time. And I timed it just right so it was just light showers or not raining at all. Then I came home and worked several more hours again on bookkeeping and such.

Another rainy day here. I am waiting for more info to add a new employee to one of my pay roll accounts before going into work for a short bit today. I need to run to payroll accounts and then come back home and work on bookkeeping again.

All my best to you always

Eating well and not much exercise. At least Christmas stuff is out of the house!

Severe allergies is what we have. Dr. recommended several OTC meds and I did get to sleep a while without coughing.

It has been raining LOTS the past two days here.

I think I have a winter cold. We both were up coughing last night. I feel like I have fever today. It will pass.

I am with you on too hot or too cold. It is too cold right now, in the 40s today. I like between 70 and 90 to be comfortable. I saw on the farm report that our area will be colder than normal the next 90 days. We are urban but watch the farm report. Dh grew up on a farm.

I hope you are feeling better asap! We don't get as cold in So Ca as other places, but the temps do dip down in the winter, and that can get to me. I noticed I am wheezing a lot more during the night and early morning again like usual when the temps drop. We are not even going to get to 60 today. My feet and hands feel like ice, as it is colder in our house then outside it seems at this time, and during the summer it can get even hotter inside than out. I am a wimp when it comes to weather, I don't like it too cold or too hot. We have all been sneezing and sniffling on and off since the weather dipped too. But not really colds, I think it is just more allergies and the change in the temp. On and off we get nicer warmer weather and the symptoms go away, and then come back when the temps dip again. We have a lot of trees in our yard and around us too, and I have allergies to pollen from most trees, bushes, grass, weeds and such.

We are having horrible congestion, either colds or "cedar fever." The cedar trees around here make most people sick when they release their pollen.

I was in Walmart yesterday and got dizzy. I think dehydration. When I got back home I started back on my water and felt better. Someone noticed and wanted to call 911, I told them NO. I did not finish my shopping, however.

Dh will have 4 days off now and this time, it will be for us to spend together.

Thanks! We had a good time. My bf's son came over in the afternoon to open presents and he stayed for dinner, and overnight with us. We also had a friend of the bf's come over for dinner with us, as otherwise he would have just been home by himself. And my bf made plenty of food for all, he cooked a roast, mixed veggies, cheesy garlic bread, and bread pudding for dessert. I skipped the cheesy garlic bread so I could enjoy the bread pudding.


The bf's son decided since he is turning 14 next month, that is too old for most of the stuff in his room. So he decided to box up most his old books and most of his toys. So I helped him move them out into the garage temporarily that night. The next day he was still boxing up books, and I helped him move those into the living room as I was running out of places to put them in the garage. Today I took them and donated them to charity for him.

Happy New Year to you Too! Janette

Our Christmas day was quiet. Dh has a cold. Christmas Eve was at the in-laws. It was as expected. We go to nursing home to pick up FIL and take him to the house where MIL lives. BIL is there too, but he did not visit. He stayed in another room watching TV. They had guests drop in which helped.

Today is my Ecogram this afternoon. Plus I have to update my retirement account. I was hoping to hit the Hobby Lobby and Michaels sales, but might have to go tomorrow.

Did you have a Merry Christmas?

Thanks! Happy Friday and Merry Christmas too!

I work for a CPA. I do bookkeeping, payroll, receptionist, and lots of other stuff for him. He has an office in Chicago, one in San Diego, and the one in Escondido that I work at. Most of the year I am in the office by myself. He will come back from Chicago sometime in Jan. He will be here a lot Jan through April with me. But then he will be back to spending most of his time in Chicago. Going back and forth as needed.

Are you in accounting?

We are having friends over tonight for pizza and cookies. I need to go shopping and get ready.

I had my hair cut Monday and today I need to wash it. The style is still holding up today. I doubt I can get it to look like Lisa did, but it will be OK.

Cooked a delicious soup and baked cookies yesterday. We did not invite anyone over, but I wanted to. We drove around looking at Christmas lights last night, however.

Dh just left for an off-duty job this evening.

All is well, except for back pain and I am soldiering through. I went to book club party last night. We laughed a lot, played games and ate too much. All good for me.
I am making ornaments with my Cricut, which I gave the hostess last night, she loved them and hung them on her tree!

I am taking more to another party on Saturday.

Still decorating the house!

I went out to breakfast and shopping with some lady friends on Saturday, Dec 1st. That was fun, I bought myself a new dress on sale for 30 % off. I picked up a gift for the white elephant gift exchange that the bf and I will be going to next Saturday. And I got a lot of walking in as I walked into town for it and walked back home afterwards. I got walking in Monday too with work. I hope all is going well for you, take care.

Dentist today for cleaning, and to Hobby Lobby for more ornaments and ribbon. I am making ornaments for my friends with their last initial on it. Need to get them done by Saturday for the Christmas Party.

We finally got our tree decorated. Now I need to find my nativities and get them put out.

This Living Spaces is 500,000 square feet. The whole building is 1.5 million square feet because it is also a distribution hub.

Agenda today is decorating for Christmas and will be in a community parade this evening with dh in his patrol car, a 2017 Explorer. At least I will be comfortable.

I am meeting with some lady friends tomorrow, but I don't know if we will go walking as it has been raining lately.

We have Living Spaces stores here too.

Enjoyed my new friends yesterday. We went to lunch at a restaurant inside a furniture store then walked the HUGE store. Enjoyed the ladies. I found out walking that I have more in common with one of them. The store was so-so, kinda' like Rooms to Go. It is called Living Spaces. I liked the accessories, but don't need any.

Happy Thanksgiving! The bf's son decided to stay with his mom today. So we decided to just take some left overs in the refrigerator and make split pea soup with it for dinner tonight. Instead of making a big meal for just the two of us. We will do that when his son decides to come back over. The soup was good on a cold and rainy day.

I got to skip my dh's office party. That helped on the eating. Today I am making a low sodium dressing to take to MIL's house. I purchased the pies to take. It will be a small group, so I am sure we will have way too much food.

I worked in the office Monday and Friday and the rest of the week I worked from home, catching up on bookkeeping. Still have more bookkeeping to do, but will probably wait until tomorrow or next week to start on the rest of it.

Have a great weekend!

Busy week. Had an MRI and pest control. We have had squirrels in the attic. The pest control won't be back until after Thanksgiving to fix where they get in and to set traps.

The MRI, I have to take a pill because I hate it. So I was goofy. A friend took me and I bought her lunch afterward. We had a nice time.

Nice to see mountains. You are lucky to live close to work.

Dh got some pegboard up yesterday for me. More today. We both had back pain last night. I picked up too many books at a time. I have a bad back anyway.

I cooked a roast in the crock pot yesterday, so we have food to eat.

It is nice having him home, we are getting a lot done.

Good Afternoon and Happy Halloween To you to you all!

I worked in the office Monday, and from home yesterday and today. But I did have to go into the office for a short time early this morning to pick up some papers a client dropped off. It is colder now in the early morning. And I can see fog off in the distance by the mountains to the north of us. I usually avoid the streets that I know the kids would be walking on to go to the few local school between our house and the office. Luckily I only have to drive a couple blocks to the west and then turn and drive four blocks to the north and then I am at my work. I usually just see a few cars on the road, and that is more likely on the four blocks going north as it is one of the main roads in the down town area. A lot of the kids and traffic have already thinned out by the time I usually go into the office. But today I went in about an hour or more earlier than usual, and there was really no traffic at all and I didn't see anyone walking then either.

Tomorrow, I think I am just running into the office for a short time to meet a client later in the morning than usual to get some papers from him. I think it is going to be a short day for me.

Take care

Lots happening. We celebrated two birthdays on Sunday. FIL was lucid so we took him out of the nursing home for a few hours. Then he started getting confused, but everything was nice. Got to see the babies of my two nieces, sisters, babies born 1 month apart.

Dh got computer and desk set up in my craft room. It doesn't work like I want it to, but will be fine. A large room would be nice. But I am blessed anyway!

I think it is okay to treat yourself once in a while. I think it we deprive ourselves of some of our favorite things it can just lead to over eating it later.

I have lost 6 lb. BG was 88 this morning. Trulicity is a miracle drug!

Our normal this time of year is the 80's, we are in the 60's and more rain is predicted this week. I just hope dh does not have to go back out to the lake.

He was tired yesterday so he rested mostly. We had a great meal late afternoon and did not need to eat supper. Even cheesecake and my BG was good today, so it did not hurt me. I had just a sliver and gave him the rest.

Prayers to you all always!

We are in the 50's in the evenings and early mornings, but we are getting into the 80's and 90's in the days again.

I ended up with Tuesday and Wednesday off. And went in later this morning and stayed later into the evening today. Tomorrow I am going to be getting up and out early and driving up the coast to drop off papers to a couple of our bookkeeping clients. And then going into the office after that.

Take care

We are having floods on the rivers and lakes like never before. We were concerned about our friends who live on Lake LBJ. Heard from them yesterday, no flooding in their home, thankfully. He was worried about his boat, however, since he can't get to it. More rain predicted today.

We are cold and rainy today and it is supposed to be all week. In Texas it is traditional to make chili on the first cold snap. I will make cornbread to go with it and greens (to be healthy, lol).

Dh has been to tired to set up my room for me, so I will once again have crafts all over the dining table because I feel the need to do crafting!

Thanks! All my best to you always.

I was feeling better and better each day. But still felt a little off all week. But I just pushed through it and worked every day for at least a little bit, so that we could make our deadlines.

I have the weekend off from work, and I will probably just do a lot of resting. I am feeling a lot better today. We had a lot of rain last night and it is cooler today. But just putting on warmer clothes and blanket, not turning on the heat just yet as it is not that cold yet here.

My boss will still be here part of next week as we still have some work to do for our deadlines, but I have done might part of it. Now it is up to the boss to complete his part. Then I will have to call clients up to see which ones want to come in to take care of it or just want it mailed to them to take care of.

But at least the worse part for me is over for another month. And next month will be easier as we won't have the tax extensions to deal with, or quarterly payroll reports for the Federal and State to deal with. And I have already started and finished some of my bookkeeping for next month too, so I got a jump on it.

I just plan on resting up this weekend so I will be ready to start it all over again.

Take care

My shot and my nutritionist diet is working. I have lost 4 lb. The first week was a bust because dh was home off and on and I could not get into a routine. Of course, weekends are always the test and the worst.

Sorry you have not been feeling well. The chicken soup sounds good!

Sunday was nice. Church and friends.

Dh brought home a LOAD of sweets from the family reunion. Kolaches, brownies, apple strudel, and pecan pie. He has been eating them. The pecan pie is huge and I don't have a place to hide it. The rest is home made. I did try the apple strudel.

I am on point today on my eating routine from the nutritionist. Last week was hard to get a routine down. Too much going on.

I am getting on the treadmill today for the first time in several weeks.

I worked Monday and tracked my exercise and walking. Then worked from home until Friday, so wasn't tracking Tuesday - Thursday. Friday I went into work and ran errands for work, so I got in over 3.5 miles and over 10K steps, exercised with walking and such for 100 mins. Today I was back to doing bookkeeping at home, so I didn't really track again. Tomorrow we are supposed to go to a party, so I will track my steps and such tomorrow. And Monday I will be back at work. My boss is coming back from Chicago sometime next week, so it could end up being a busy week for me. We have the deadline of getting all the exts done by the 15th, plus quarterly payroll reports, and also getting the P & L's for the bookkeeping clients done. Not sure if I am going to be the one running to all the clients up the coast and in Escondido, or the boss will do it. I am thinking he is going to be busy with the taxes, so it will probably be me. If so then I will get a lot of walking and steps in with that.

Have a great Sunday!

Went well. Dr. is retiring, but they assigned me another. I only go once a year to this one. He told me not to worry about my kidneys, not a lot of change and no protein in urine, which is a good sign.

Dh is taking his mom to a family reunion today. I did not go so won't see him until late tonight.

Yes, I have turned off the TV during the day now. It was fascinating, and sad.

I think most of America is fed up with politics, in reality.

Tonight I will ride with dh to various neighborhoods for National Night Out. Tomorrow is nutritionist appointment, I need help with more than the DASH book. Thursday is nephrologist appointment. Then we will go to a movie that evening because dh is off Friday.

All my best to you always.

I haven't even tried to catch any of those hearings. I am just so fed up with all the mud slinging on all the sides of every issue with politics right now. I have just pretty much tuned it all out. I hardly watch that type of news any more. I mostly just see and read the headlines plastered on Facebook and other places and just tune it out. I don't even want to click on it to hear more about it. I don't really vote by party lines anyways. I try to vote by issues. Whom says they will do the things I want, or whom says they want something that I don't want. Or what I think is the best for me or others. I don't really feel that there is one party that wants exactly what I want, and is against what I don't want anyways, even the lesser parties. Some stuff that each are for is fine, but other stuff I am not so in agreement with. I didn't want Hillary or Trump, but didn't really care for the other choices either.

Same with a lot of the news these days, just a lot of she said he said. Or other mud slinging stuff. I mostly just pay attention to the weather, and even that I do more of online instead of on the TV.

Thanks. That is exactly what I would do, walk up to the tables and ask. Some people think everything revolves around them. She must realize we are all new to each other.

I am now on the diabetes med. No side effects so far except a bit of nausea, that goes away quickly, thankfully. I was like your brother. I got out of whack after surgery last year and gained 30 pounds. Getting back slowly.

I am glued to the TV for the Kavanaugh hearings. How embarrassing this whole process is!

My msgs got turned off in here, but I turned them back on.

So sorry to hear about your health issues. Maybe they can figure it out, and help you to get back off the medicine. My brother got off diabetes medicine with diet change and exercise. But then he went back to work and started to go out of wack again. They put him back on it and added a cholesterol medicine too. The cholesterol one made his muscles and joints ache. They tried different ones with same results. So he worked hard on the diet and exercise again and got off them again.

My liver function was off a bit from gallstones. Then the liver and kidneys was off from kidney stones. But I am slowly but surely getting over the issue from the kidney stones, and diet and exercising to change my liver and kidneys levels again. The GI doctor said they are back down to levels that he isn't worried about them any more. So I will just keep working on it.

You just can't please everyone! I wouldn't worry about that one person. We have some same issues like that with our group. We will post on Facebook that we want to get together. We try to pick a day and time that works best for the most people. There will always be some that will complain if it is on a weekday, others if it is on the weekend, and others if it is in the evening. Then you get a lot that say there are going to show, so you book a big table in the restaurant that most of them chose. And then hardly any one shows up so the restaurant is upset that you keep a huge table and just needed a small one. Or you figure only half will probably come that said they would so you get a smaller table, and a bunch show up. Or you try to hold on to a couple of tables next to each other just in case, and no one shows. Same with walking or other events, you have people that complain about the day, time or place. You pick the one that most agreed with for day, time and place. You wait before even starting to walk, maybe 15 mins or so just getting to know each other or just chatting while you give any stranglers time to get there. And a lot of times there will still be some late people. You even walk the same path, so late starters could catch up with you if they really wanted. Especially sometime we would walk the same path two to three times. There will always be someone that complains. Or you try to change up the time, place and day every so often to give others a chance to have it when they wanted it, and there will be some that complain that it changed on them. We even exchange phone numbers and make sure that the people hosting the event give their cell number out to the group so if anyone gets lost they can call to find us, but there will still be some that will say that they didn't have the number or such. Some we even offer to let carpool with us so they can come.

Just do your best and don't worry about it. She could have asked for a cell phone number of someone she knew was going or gave her number out. Or she could have looked around for a group of ladies and asked if they were the ones she was trying to meet with. The first time I met with my group there was only a couple of ladies and no way of knowing whom was whom in the restaurant. I asked the staff and they had no cue. So I asked a couple of tables of ladies until I found the correct table. It turned out that the leaders that had name tags and other stuff to identify the group just hadn't got there yet. They were running late and I was running early.

Great on the normal tests! I was not so blessed. I am now on diabetes meds, yesterday was my first dose of Trulicity. You inject it once a week.

My kidney function was off, as well. I see that doctor next week. I will also see a nutritionist next week. Something is just off and I cannot figure out the balance on my own.

Everything else was great! He took 8 tubes from my arm, so literally everything was checked.

I made one lady mad last week at our meet up. I did not know she was coming, she was late. I told the people at the front of the restaurant that if any lady was looking for Linda to tell them where we were. Apparently it did not happen and she sent me a nasty message. Can't win them all.

That is a great idea Linda! I know a lot of my neighbor's are on that site. I have a couple other sites similar that people from my town have started where they post all kinds of news about our little area here. Some of them swap babysitting, pet sitting and other such stuff with each other. And they report on loss and found pets on it and other stuff too.

Sorry I haven't been on much lately. Just been busy with work and such. And I haven't been getting msgs for any of my teams either. Every once in a while it happens, I think mostly after or while they are making changes in the site is when it happens the most.


I hope all is going well for everyone!

All my test results I was waiting on came back normal, so I think all the running to specialist is over now.

All my best to you all always.

Here is what I did. I posted in Next Door (which only goes to my neighborhood and others close to mine, and is private).
My title was Retired Seeking To Expand My Horizons
the body read:
Are there any other retired females in our area who would be interested in meeting new people, having coffee and intelligent conversation? We could progress to taking walks, learning ways to improve our health, going to dinner with our husbands, going to movies, endless possibilities. ( No need to discuss politics or religion! We get enough of that. ) I could use a few more friends and perhaps you could too. PM me if interested.

I got quite a response!

J_HENNINGTON, you should join a Spark team that is for your CIty/Town and see if you have anyone close to you that would like to meet up with you. Or post in the teams that you already belong in here, and see if anyone is close to you that would like to meet up. Or go on the Meet-up site. I found the local group on the Meet up site, myself.

I hope to grow to something like that. We are in close proximity. I found I needed more interaction with retired ladies. We are all retired.

I have church friends, but I needed more.

That is great! I belong to a group of local ladies that are 50 plus, that all live here locally. Some retired and some still working like myself. They have a book club and a games club that meet regularly. Then they set up events at least once a month were we try to get together for brunch, or walking, or some other event, especially during the holidays. Some like myself don't get to attend a lot of the week day or week night events because of work and family, but luckily they do stuff on the weekends some too, and that is when most of the ladies that work attend the different events. So we could have anywhere from just 3 of us to about 30 of us at one event. A lot of the walking events I went on was just 3-4 of us. But we did a walking tour of our town and we had about 10 ladies come that time I think, and then with just the other people from town and visitors that also signed up for the tour, we had about 30 people on the tour, and got a few new members from that. When we go to brunch or other events it can be just a few of us to about 30. We have more members than that, but we never seem to get us all able to come to any one event. The Christmas party and gift exchange seems to be the most popular event, but I have yet to attend one of them.

Have a great weekend

I started a retired women's group and we met for the second time yesterday. It was fun. Two new ones attended and two from the last did not show up. So we have 5 of us. We drank bubble tea and smoothies and talked about our lives. I got stevia in my smoothie. Nice time!

I hope you had a great weekend!

I just stayed home and rested and did some bookkeeping for work over the three day holiday weekend. And I only had to go into work for a really short time today. Mainly just to get something out in the mail and to check what came in the mail.

Take care

I managed to stick to the DASH diet while eating out this past weekend. Today we have nothing special planned. I am on a pound a week weight loss challenge, but it is about a pound every two weeks for me. I will take it!

Thanks! My appt Tuesday with the GI went easy. I had already printed out all their forms from the internet and had them filled out before I got there, along with another sheet that had the usual questions they ask me typed out too with my prescriptions, allergies, and other details. I just went in and they talked to me. Said they didn't see any need to do the test my primary sent me for, as my levels really were not that high, and nothing to worry about, and according to their standards I wasn't past due to have a colonoscopy, that I am actually not due for it until sometime next year. And since I wasn't in any pain, or having any symptoms that would concern them, they didn't see any need to subject me to invasive tests that I really wasn't wanting to go through either. So I got out of the colonoscopy and the Upper GI that my primary was pushing for that I didn't want to go through. So all I had to do is do another blood test lab work for them, and since that came out all normal, I am good to go for at least another year.

My biopsy that I went through today wasn't nothing to worry about either. Just felt a little pressure, no pain, and still no pain from it. She said everything looked okay, but did the biopsy just to be sure. So I should know about it in a few weeks.

After my biopsy, I went on into work as I felt fine. I went ahead and I ran all my payroll for Monday today, so I don’t have to go into work Monday. I probably won’t have to go in Tuesday either since I finished all my payroll, except for one on Friday. And of course I still have bookkeeping to do, but I can do it at home. So I might get to stay home a lot next week and just work from home.

Take care

I got a call from the GI Dr's office today, my blood work turned out normal, so no other test or procedures are needed at this time for them. Now I just have to deal with the biopsy at the women's clinic on Friday. Take care

Thoughts and prayers for that procedure.

FIL is now in dementia ward of nursing home. We are going back Saturday to make sure things are still running smooth. MIL did some things that set him off. She does not know that we know. Dh talked with administrator of nursing home, director of nursing and his doctor.

I got the "GI" specialists consult done today, and then went off for labs work that he wanted done again. Hopefully everything will come out okay, and I won't be sent for more test or procedures. I know I am supposed to having a procedure done on Friday, a type of biopsy, but don't know any more about what else they may do that day or at another time.

I had another busy week at work and looks like the next few weeks could be busy too.

In law problems. Dh father's dementia got worse over the weekend and he is in the hospital. They are a 2 hour drive from us. MIL is crazy too, but in a different way. Aging parents are hard.

Planning meals for shopping tomorrow.
