Thank you Marcy. And Roscoe loves you : )
haha I hear you though being bling fund broke never stopped me...
Oy I hope Colin is on the mend. It is always something. Good luck with your car today and hope it goes smoothly. I don't think waiting will make too much of a difference. I hope not. I didn't want Greg to risk post surgical infection and at less than 7 weeks out it is still a short time from surgery. As for me I am not anxious to start the OP meds because from my research they are all risky and not sure if they even help. Still researching but I know I should go on one as soon as the doctors and I figure out which one and if my PTH is working correctly or not...Anyway have a lovely day @Austina and hugs.Colin went for physio this morning and he’s popped 3 cartilage between ribs, probably caused by coughing He’s booked up more appointments, as they’ve advised 5 in all, which will just take us up to when we go away. My shoulders are a bit sore from the pummelling yesterday, but it feels freer, and I enjoyed my golf lesson.
Got to take my car in for a service tomorrow, so an early start.
Hope you had a wonderful time with your fiends in Austin and as for their travel plans sheesh. I dont know the risk but yeah I would reconsider given all that is happening with the Coronavirus. Scary stuff especially for those with other health concerns. Love you Kate the great @Tekate and thanks for looking out for me too. I will be OK. One day at a time. Doing the best we can do. And keeping it in perspective. Challenging but hey we are still here and for that I am grateful. More on that in another post below.Going out to lunch with our friends in Austin, they travel incessantly, they are due to go to South America this Friday, I of course will try to talk HER out of it, probably no luck but I'll try, she has a pacemaker and ICD unit in her chest of course.. so her heart has improved immensely over the last 2 years since she had sudden cardiac arrest which they attribute to an unknown virus attack on her heart, she's looney, that's why she and I have been s close and fight btw these last 35 years.. I told her I would stay with her while husband travels (he has 2 stents in his heart). He will retire the end of this year so it's just the waiting game.. she s a pain in my a$$ and I love her with all my heart.... so off to El Dorado for lunch in 45 mins.
HI to everyone, I'm trying to get into a groove here to read more.. anyway, everyone has a super day, sending hugs to all! xo
Thanks guys. I feel for his family. His mom is still alive. Outliving one’s child is tragic.
@missy I am so sorry to hear about Greg’s friend. I am keeping him in my thoughts.I am sharing something sad.
Greg's first childhood friend died yesterday I cannot believe another friend is gone. Shocking. He had cancer a few years ago and beat it with surgery and chemo but the chemo left him very sick and he was hospitalized much of the summer in a coma. The chemo left him vulnerable to an infection but I digress. He was released from the hospital a couple of months ago and we thought he was doing well. But no his cancer had returned unbeknownst to all of us and yesterday he died
He had a challenging life. Now he is at peace.
Thank you @canuk-gal..Bailey is my sidekick..I love that furry guy..HI:
@Jimmianne hope you are feeling better today. I hope Roscoe had a good lunch! It is windy here today, aslo.
@missy sad news about Greg's friend. Always unwelcomed news.
@Austina I hope Colin is on the mend--I hope never to have popped anything!
@Mamabean the pictures of Bailey were adorable! You live in a gorgeous place!
@marcy bright, sunny and warm for Winter. 9C , but the wind is a fiend!
I continue to be on duty. DH is doing pretty well but I feel like I "need" to be here. I have been going out everyday, even if it is to do stuff I normally don't like (lol) just to get out. Tomorrow is DS RC and I am worried about that more than anything. Clearly I am unable to give myself a break!
I work all next week. eyiyiyi. Well my DH and DS will have to look after each other.
It sounds beautiful @Jimmianne...It must be your little piece of heaven!Missy, I’m sorry. Please tell tell Greg. It is sad and unsettling news.
Oh, and Missy, I think you guys should come to France. When you are used to waking up at 3am...it’s the same as 9am here! Very convenient.
Austina, I am an early bird like Missy. Never got off French time since returning to the States, so, oddly, no jet lag this time.
It was incredibly windy today; the Loire looks like the ocean with whitecapped waves.
Is it windy there??
Hi all dear NIRDIs
@Niffler75 Wishing Hershey a speedy recovery. Hyperthyroidism is what Tommy has as well. We started him on the smallest dose of Felizamole and it was too low so increased it from once to twice a day and it was too much so now we are giving him 2 doses MWF and one dose the rest of the week and rechecking him next week sometime. For us it is a work in progress. Hope you find Hershey's perfect dose soon!So one of our cats Hershey has just got back from the vet. She had her bloods checked and has hyperthyroidism. I knew something was up but couldn't put my finger on it!
But she is 14. Otherwise she is ok though which is good kidneys and everything ok. So will be starting her on meds in the next few days!
Glad the car passed MOT and that you just need new tires soon. Smart to take care of it after your holiday and keep everyone safe. Glad the weather is calming down and nice and bright. Thank you for all your continued good wishes. I hope Colin is feeling better and I hope you are feeling well too. Hugs.As I said earlier, it was actually almost snowing this morning when I took the car in, down to 2 deg C, but it didn’t settle, and actually cleared up to be a bright day. Everything was OK with the car, passed it’s MOT (certificate of road worthiness), only issue is that we’re going to need new tyres shortly. Not too bad for 3 years, especially as SUV tyres tend to wear quicker and you can’t just replace the front or the back, they all have to be done. We’ll do it when we get back from our holiday.
Glad you got to meet a friend for lunch yesterday. Makes the day more pleasant. Glad the phone interview went well. Sorry you didn't get that much work done but woohoo it's Friday! Enjoy a wonderful day Marcy. XO.Our phone interview went pretty good today; we are having him come in for the big group interview. He’s young and wants his foot in the door so he may not stick with our team long but that’s okay too.
I met a friend for lunch today, then spent an hour in a round table meeting with one of our new directors. I don’t think I got even half of my normal work done.
Oh I want to visit you there! It has been decades since I visited France and now that you live there I have so much more reason to come. Sending you lots of hugs and have a wonderful day. XOXO.Oh, and Missy, I think you guys should come to France. When you are used to waking up at 3am...it’s the same as 9am here! Very convenient.
Thank you @bling_dream19. I feel for his family. For his mom. For his sister. TBT Our lives are not going to change significantly with his passing. Yes we will miss him and we are sad. But it is nothing like what his family is going through. I can only imagine. For them my heart breaks. But there isn't much left of my heart right now that isn't in tiny little pieces because of Fred and Francesca's passing. I guess there really is a limit on how much one's heart can breakSo sorry to hear of your dear friend passing - hugs to you and Greg. I'm sure your friendship to him was very special.
