5:30 and DH fetched the images on cd himself, brought it to office and gave it to her, and she put it in her pocket and she said she would call. Did not unless it was same time as a Robo call. now we have the weekend again. Texted again.I hate texting. Trying to get appt ASAP To be there in person. Cannot understand how a dr can keep not getting back when it has been dragging on for six weeks. Think when he sees his primary in two weeks he will ask for a good neurologist and drop her after over ten years. She seems to forget a lot. We have the reports.
nervous energy can be useful. Tomorrow is the annual city food drive…literally drive. you drive up and someone unloads the car! We bought a lot of canned stuff in case of shortages, quarantine or what and pull dates are close. I swear pull dates expire quickly on Safeway stuff. I also have off brand cleaning stuff I will never use. I also discovered I am buying stuff I already have because I Don't see it.
Saw that people wish for cleaning stuff, dishwashing detergent, coffee, tea,tp ,lotions, cake mix, frosting, and other things that cost a lot or get left out in their financial priories.
by the time I got that out of my sewing, art, etc closet and sorted through what we have in pantry, the whole pantry and part of garage got cleaned up! A lot of the garage needs sorting and rearranging.
Lin, so sorry you and Bob are having to go through this frustration. Hope his pcp can help find a different, reliable neurologist.
Decided not to go to the cabin for the weekend. They were leaving late this afternoon driving the almost 3 hours to the cabin and coming back early Sunday morning. Too long a drive for too short a time. I also felt that it would be a good thing for them to spend some time together without anyone else around. They both are quite stressed at work and need some alone time.
Think I have to break down and go to the grocery store tomorrow. I have a pretty long list. Should have went to day but got too lazy. Didn't really do a whole lot today. Laundry and cleaned the bathrooms and swept the living room, kitchen and hallway.
Had a bad few hours this afternoon. Can be doing fine and then suddenly it hits me that he's gone forever. Hoping the counseling I'm going to start is going to help work through the feelings of guilt I have and the fact that I'm going to always be alone.
GOT the call JIM AND THERESA WILL NOT BECOMING,I kinda had the feeling.
he worked today,not sure if it was 4 hours or 8.finally going to retire,the end of the month.has 4 days lefts he works 2 days a week,sounds like the kids are after him to. he is 15 months older then Don and DON IS 85. Don is in the best shape of his 3 brothers.
BETTY have you though about one of the robot vacs? a friend on lifetime got one from Walmart. first they had one from Kohl's and did not like it.she says it is kinda crazy till the rooms get mapped out. I can give you the serial number and model number and name, has to be ordered online.
talked to Theresa and she does not want one,her dgd had one and did not like it.
each to their own.
in away I am glad they are not coming,been in pain on and off.got up from the end recliner with my cane and thought I was gonna fall into the end table, so now using my walker.
I wanted to go to KOHL'S ,KNEW I WAS NOT IN SHAPE TO GO, SO CAME HOME FROM DINNER OUT..
LIN,so sorry you have to jump through hoops to talk to doctor.
Betty,I do hope the counseling will work for you. is it a group? I think you will find other widows and widowers are going through the same feelings.never know you might make some good women friends.PHYL
personal challenge is: get to the y more often. like 4-5 days a week.
Basically did absolutely nothing today. Only one load of laundry. Rested my back. It’s doing ok. I think I got it to hot with heating pad the doctor wanted me to use. It heated up the bruised area and stayed that way. About an hour ago took a cool shower and that seemed to fix it. She said can use cold pack also. When I use heating pad tomorrow will have it on low.
Tomorrow night is my sisters wedding anniversary party. I am going no matter how I feel. Will feel good to be dressed up and see hubby in a suit.
Lin- that’s so frustrating about your doctor. I would change also. Great job clearing out the cans.
Betty- yes sitting in the car that long for such a short trip can be uncomfortable. You are probably right that they will enjoy the weekend together alone. I think the counseling will really help you.
She did call! At 6:15. And she had not seen my text. Good thing he dropped off the cd because the computer people to give her direct access to that constant never showed up.
so it is not the two serious things we thought, but might still be the original in August..not draining spinal fluid except that it was not clogged on the Oct 1 test! So referred to next specialist up…if her staff from the company that bought them actually sent it. second opinion. Might have fixed itself. Fingers crossed. Do not want surgery.
Betty hope counseling helps.you sure did everything you could.
Remember Geri? She has had a robot vacuumer for years..check price at Costco.
Mar, be very careful with the heating pad. Should never have it higher than low. Can get a really bad burn from it.
Phyl, the counseling is individual. Not even in person, on the phone. This is a benefit from our insurance company. I'm hoping it will help me get through the process. I think people either like or hate the robo vacuum.
I just read something about food pantries and things the customers like. If they can't get eggs, oil, ground beef boxed items like cake mixes or hamburger helper don't do them much good. They also like shampoo/conditioner. When I volunteered at the one in our hometown , people could get 1pound of hamburger each week. Hard to feed a family on that. I should check out my cupboards again. No outdated in there but I know some things I'll never use. Another thing to put on my list of to do.
