Default Wonderful Wednesday!

Morning Mates, I didn't say anything yesterday because I still didn't believe it was going to happen...but yesterday morning we picked up our new little golden retriever puppy!
Her name is GEM, the "em" in reference to Emma, and GEM were my late mom's initials, so she is a very special little girl. Here's a pic...

Hi Kids,
A showery day it will be here.....and all the buds and trees will love the light rain...Forsythia is everywhere so indeed spring is here.


Today I am having lunch with a few pals...one of which recently came home from Poland, and a tour of the concentration camps, sponsored by Hadassah, an organization she has been an officer in, for many years. She stopped in London on the way back, so we are looking forward to hearing all about it.


Donna, the dog is adorable..! Will Gem morph into Gemmy? Your trifecta is back in play..enjoy !


I was up early, showered, made supper and threw a wash in. Oy...you make it a good one.

Good morning everyone:

I am back among the semi-functioning. The surgery went very well and the damage was not as extensive as originally thought so I was only in for one day. I had a bit of a problem with the Dilaudid. It builds up in my system and after a couple of days I go into a narcosis. It really hit when I got home yesterday. I spent yesterday afternoon drooling. I stopped the dilaudid and I am now using good old Ibuprofen to control the pain. I will be pretty restricted for the next six weeks and I have to wear a version of the "Playtex 18 Hour Girdle" but I can resume a normal diet once my appetite comes back. Right now food is not appealing to me. That's hard to believe.

Donna: Gem looks like a gem. That's a good name and good tribute to your Mom and Emma. You also got her at the perfect time. Warm weather makes potty training much easier. I wish you and Gem, years of happiness together.

Well, not much on the agenda. I get to shower today, so that will be my highlight. Wow: What an exciting life I have.

Take care,
Mike

Good morning from Sunny Florida


Our big event today is going for a regular Doctor's app. We will see if our latest blood tests and such turn up anything negative.


Donna, that is one beautiful puppy. Golden Retrievers are my favorite breed.


Have a nice day folks.

A sunny, but cooler day in NW Ohio. To be in the upper 50's. Last night I asked DH to take a short walk with me down the road (I just had knee surgery and need to work the joint). Apparently, I can no longer walk, as I caught my good foot and tripped. Since I had the dog lead around my back, I could not put out my hands to break my fall. I face-planted the asphalt. At least it is not broken (that's what urgent care told me after I had a CT scan). Ugh! Never even touched the surgery knee. Fell on other side, kind of!

RD, Gem is a real gem. She is such a cutie pie!!

Trip, enjoy hearing about your friend's trip. Our visit to Dachau was quite interesting. It took a long time to do the scrapbooking for that particular stop, it was hard to revisit the things we learned at the site.

Mike M., it is good to see you back online. Hope you are resting and recuperating well. Be nice to your Mrs. as she controls your surroundings at the moment!!

Manuel, good luck for you and Mrs. at the doctor!

Aerogirl, hope your day gets more interesting!

Here's hoping all have a great day!

Good morning. Yes, indeed, it is spring. Everything's abloom including my allergies. I have a inhaler that I don't even know how to use and the patient education was so scarey, I don't know if I want to use it. Must call the dr. today.

Donna, the pup is adorable! I wanted to reach in the picture and pet her!

Our trip to Phoenix is soon here. We fly there on Friday.

Mike, so glad you're home!

Have a good day, people.

Judy

Good Afternoon! I am late getting in today. I have been busy elsewhere. It is sunny and nice here in Florida today. I am inside when I should be at the pool.
Donna Your new baby is a sweetie and I love the name Gem. Poor Lucy got a case of Catitude. she will get over it. Hang in there.
I need to ask for a few prayers from CruiseMates. today I got the report from my mammogram and they want to check out something they saw on my left breast. Needless to say I am scared to death. For the first time in all the years I have been alone I am not feeling so strong. So please if you can squeeze in one more prayer tonight. I sure could use it.


Laura

Laura
I know you must be freaked out but take a deep breath. Chances are it's nothing....my sister recently went through the same thing with her mammogram . She was sent for an ultrasound and it was nothing.
I will keep you in my prayers but I know your going to be just fine. XOXOX

Good evening Mates.


Donna, Gem is beautiful. May she live a happy and healthy life.


Laura, I hope it's nothing. I had a scare like that last year. It turned out to be a stray lymph node. The tech saw it and told me I would be getting one of those letters to come back in but to not let it scare me as it was probably nothing. I went back and had the ultrasound and was told it was a stray lymph node. I just went back for the six month follow up a few weeks ago and it was still there just where it was, nothing different. Come back in six months.


I'll be thinking about you and sending you best wishes...I just want you to know that they send out the letters for anything and everything. You take good care. xoxo
