Short Trip to ER

Last night rattles became worse. Slight panic set in.

We went to hospital ER - the last place I wanted to see on a Friday night at 10:30. I expected a full waiting room of sick or injured persons. One young man standing, using his cell phone.

Ushered right in. Nothing is wrong with me - except I'm full of phlegm (my diagnosis, not theirs.)

Instructions: Use honey to suppress the cough. If I get worse, come back. See my doctor in 2 to 3 days. (Been trying to see him for a week and a half.) Mention that you've been to hospital ER and that might give you some pull.

Nice personnel but no answers.

Random Thoughts

Could the cable news networks tell their hosts to ask shorter questions and then let the guests answer?

It seems the questioners like their air time but I would like to hear the answers. When the guests are interrupted, that seems very rude. Hosts seem to want to get on to the next question!

Perhaps I watch too much cable news. That could be the solution! Stop watching.

First Son and His First Daughter

I love this picture of our older son and his older daughter. In case you can't tell, it was taken at a lovely hole in the wall café in McKinney, Texas, in 2005.

I need more photos from the other son and daughters. However, he is not on facebook so I am not sure he would approve. Life is different now!

Love all my family to pieces!

Mark up Another Eight Weeks

This is the date to get my IV for boosting my immunity.  Two months ago it may not have worked as well as it could have.

The nurses in infusion are so nice, friendly and efficient. That makes the trip more enjoyable. Today she only had to stab me twice. It's not her fault. Small veins and they roll. The record was five tries. I had gauze and coban all over my arms.

I try to grab a chair with a tv so I don't miss the show my sister-in-law and I watch and then cuss and discuss. I think we watch it so we can feel more normal.

Nice day today - in the 80's.

What a Wimp

I can now speak without coughing. I have recovered from being sick (I mean Sick) from the Rx they gave me. I cannot take antibiotics by mouth. Don't even try giving them to me.

I think it was a severe cold. No fever. Just miserable.

I am not a good patient. And not patient in waiting for it to be over.

We are having a nice cool day after several near 90 days. I wonder what August will be like.

The repair man came today and fixed our wall. A very nice young contractor and he accepted our offer of a printer. He also got the history - seldom used, dried up ink.

Now to get back to crocheting.

Oh yes, and thanks for the well wishes from fellow bloggers and friends.

Attacked by Some Kind of Bug

Been in bed all day.

Being sick is not fun.

Hoping for a better tomorrow

Sore throat developed into something more complicated. Not sure just what it is but I have slept some today and not feeling so good.

Hope for fast recovery.
