It's Contagious

Seems everybody is getting it,,, that bug of "NOTHING TO SAY" Had to say that, lol. I seeDD hasn't been on for 3 days!!!!!! Now, that's a first.

Then a few more, saying no more posts, nothing to say. I do mine when i have a little, sometimes i think i shouldn't.

I do have one good thing to say today. I'm off oxygen right now, have been for 2 days. Off all the other too, like that nebulizer, nose sprays, inhalers, etc. But still have some steroids left, so not sure what will happen then. My appointment is the 19th. I had an application put in to be qualified for the rides to and from doc appointments, but even tho it's been over 30 days, haven't heard anything yet. Wouldn't you know  that when it was sent in, is when the program has had all the upsets.

Got someone coming this morning for home health care sign up. My doc told me there wasn't anybody doing that any more, BUT, there is! In fact, several companies around here are. Now i need to find out just how many, get a list, and give it to them at the clinic. She said there were people asking all the time.

Weather getting bad, now, front came in this morning, DD and BB. Might have ice, a little, by Thursday AM.

I was so glad to see my Lifetime movie channel back to normal, not just Xmas movies. In fact, i watched "the Heat" last nite, with Sandra Bullock, and the one on Mike and Molly. ?,,,

These were so popular as Xmas gifts, Walmart might be sold out by now. I gave them to everybody on my list then some were wanting more, or asking, where did i get those?,,, lol. In case you can't tell, they are ceiling fan pulls. My niece opened theirs, said WHAT???? YEARS!!!,,,lololol,,, shorthand for why did it take years to do this? I added a mail box alert to some too. It's a yellow ball that pops up when you have mail put in.

Might be back, or not, before New Years, but just in case, Have a HAPPPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!

DD reminded me of my son, when he was in high school, came home from school for the holidays, sick. Really sick. High fever, stayed in bed til Xmas day, had to get up and go out to skate on his new skates with the others, you know. Put him back down, I even took him to the ER, and was told he had the same thing everybody else did, but the doc didn't realize how bad he was. He needed to have been admitted. He lost a lot of weight, looked grayish for a long time, til i took him back in March. He was told to stay home, do nothing, take double vitamins, don't remember what else. But he finally got well doing that.

I made that jello salad and that's all i did. Just wasn't much able this year. Were LOTS of people there, good thing they have a big house, big breezeway, and big patio. And it was warm enough for the little ones to go out. lol The smallest took her shirt off, already barefooted, and went out. About dark time the trampoline just flat broke thru the middle....Not a new one, was from last year. But there were riding toys, lots of other stuff.

We actually had enough food to make it thru supper too. 3 turkeys, 2 hams, all kinds of sides. I put a plate in a microwave for later, and later, it was gone! Had to get a little more for it.

My nephew is coming over today to get my new printer working. I know he'll sleep all morning,,, lol. He's the tech guy who gets stuck with helping all of us.

Gonna get some laundry going, yall tc, and

Got my green stuff, jello salad, made, and yeah, had to have some for supper. Will do so today too... lol. Gosh i love that stuff. All it is, is large cool whip, small pistachio jello, 16 oz can of crushed pineapple. I doubled it. Dump all in, even the juice.

All the small gifts are in bags, found them at Alco for 50% off. Was well worth it, not having to dig everything out to wrap with.

Saw a recipe on Facebook, tried it, and it IS good. Use a can of crescent rolls, sliced apples, sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. 15 mins on 350. The pepperoni and cheese are just ok. Heck you can stick anything like that in em, gonna try cream cheese with something, maybe that pepperoni. lol. O yeah, you do roll em up.

Ok, that's it yall, tc, and

WEEEE, Winter Solstice Today!

I'm always ready for this one, but then, the summer one too. lol.

I think i'm ready for Xmas, didn't do much. Family got too big so i cut everybody out but just my own. Was looking around in the Alco (that's closing) and there weren't any Xmas cards so, snooping around in the Xmas stuff in the back, i found this little bitty Xmas stocking, about 6" tall with white fur around the top, glittery pink stocking. OOO yeah, perfect for g/daughter to put some money in, with a note that's it's only for personal. Hate to give money, but in this case i'm gonna. She's getting a divorce, moved, and money is tight, so i know she wouldn't spend anything on herself now. I have to shop where there's electric carts to ride.

Now for my health, hate to even bring it up, but was doing so bad, went to see my doc on Tues, then went back Thurs and she put me back on steroids to try to get me along the way to see the lung doc. That's the only thing that has helped, dont know why. My O2 won't stay above 90 without it. That's with the elbuterol treatment, 2 different inhalers, and the oxygen! Need to get me fixed! Oxygen on 93 right now, lololol, good for me. I still think i have something that will go away, allergies?, lots of stuff coming out of my head, and coughing up stuff too.

Well. guess thats all ive got, sitting here staring at the screen, so yall tc, and


Mentioning those burr stickers reminded me of what my son and bro did a few days ago....They built a torch,, hahaha, my x heard them and asked what they were doing, and when they told him, he said "i remember what happened last time yall played with fire",, lololol. (set the back lot on fire, had to call FD). I haven't seen it, but bro told me it burned BIG. So he's been in the process of burning them out of his yard, they would never be able to get them out of the house since they are having Xmas there. When others heard about it, he had to go do theirs too. I'm waiting to hear about my son getting burned,,,was always that way. If things happened it was to him. O yeah, they did his yard too. If i remember, (brain won't work good with low 02) i'll try to get pics.

Health Issues

I think i posted i was seeing my doctor Tuesday, HA, got sent to the hospital, for observation while they changed my meds. Could barely breathe. I did drive myself there, and got started on oxygen immediately. Stayed in my clothes until i came home Wednesday.....Well, took my pants off to sleep, and surprisingly, slept pretty good with that tube in my nose.

One good thing, no pneumonia, just some wheezing. My heart doc even came by, told me it was NOT my heart being the problem, was my lungs, then put me on a med that will help both interact better. Reason my heart was racing was because of my O2 getting too low, under 90.

My new printer is still not working, need a new color ink cartridge, cause i pulled off a piece of tape that i shouldn't have. Don't think i can find one here. Gonna try one more thing here, putting in the one out of my old printer, not the 61, but is the 60 and looks like it might work.

O yeah, i was put on oxygen 24/7. Got that going a few hours after i got home. Not sure if i need to do the sleep study or not, now. Think i'd better call. HATE this!

Hope yall liked that Taxes thing,, tc, and

The V/Q Scan

That's the lung scan.  I had to do research on the words, but what i got out of it, these tests were mainly for blood clots in the lungs, which my result is, very low probability of there being one in my lungs. Now, that's me reading from My Chart, not talking to the doc. Sounds pretty good to me, tho. Nothing about the heart one, yet. Had to go to my heart doc to be read, so i don't know when it will get to My Chart. (love this place).

Our health system started using that chart thing and it covers everything you do in this health system, available to you any time after you sign up for it. Shows future appointments, prescriptions, results of tests, gosh, everything. I use it a lot. Of course, it's all available to your docs too.

Wish i knew what i wanted to eat for lunch. My 2 major decisions every day, are: lunch and supper. I ate oatmeal yesterday, and just wasn't that satisfying. Maybe a grilled cheese, getting tired of those, too.

BB picked a good time to come back. Warm enough for the next week, and he'll be settled in by then.

I had forgotten how good John Grisham was to read. Back a few years ago, i had read them all up til that time, so now there's more. You just don't want to put em down. Then, there's new ones by Lee Child, another fav.

OKOK, nothing else to say, lol, so yall tc, and


Tuesday, December 2, 2014


This is the name of that lung test i went thru yesterday. V/Q Scan, lung ventilation/PerPusion Scan. Horrible thing. I had to lay on a little narrow table like for an MRI. Had a thingy with a pillow for my head, and one for my knees to go on. There were 8 sections, (parts) and the first one i could leave my arms down. Took 10.? minutes. 2nd, arms over head or shoulder height for one, took 20.?. Got to move for a minute, then back in same position for #3. Took, OMG, 29.? minutes!! Can't do #4!!! Wasn't gonna do #3, but he said he'd rush it up but had to do it or nothing would count. By then my hip, and shoulder are bothering me.

I know this is long, but so was that. The next, and last, 4 were a lot shorter, and i got thru those. Could move between them more often.  They were like, 5, 6, 5, 5 minutes each. These took about 2 1/2 hours, total for all 7, (missed that one lonnnnggg one).

The heart Echo test was nothing to it. She put that jelly stuff on, and slid around that monitor, for about 20 minutes.

Thru til the sleep test on the 17th. Then back in Jan. for 2 more somethings, forgot. One had to do with walking,,, lolol,,, i'll fail that one for sure.

I've done what i can to get help with transportation, a man sent in the app, should hear around the middle of this month. I really need it, for anybody to take me they have to take off work. And there are times i can't drive back and forth, like, 60 or more miles.

Everybody seems to be putting up trees, getting ready for Christmas.  Not sure if i will even put up my "get out of the box, plug it in" one or not. Already done what shopping i'm gonna do.

We got an Alco here a few years ago, and now it's closing. All of em. Horrible. Only place this side of Walmart, at least 32 miles away, you could get tech things, etc.  It was like a mini Walmart. My sis worked there, but the $Store asked her to come to work for them, and she's already there. They marked their prices up to give like a 5% discount! lololol. They did have my Iams cat food, probably will change.

Yall tc, and
