Default Thursday Last Day of August

Morning Mates, I thought I'd post late Wed. nite since we'll be out of here early Thurs morning again.
It's been a wild and crazy ride the last few day. We had family visiting, and James got suddenly sick with fever and weakness and spent most of their visit in the hospital. He is home now but very weak, we are hoping it is just a delayed reaction to the chemo 2 weeks ago.
Family has gone home but we had a great visit. My son even built a ramp to help James get in and out of the house more easily.
Tomorrow we go for blood test and a visit to his GP. I'm not sure how I'm going to get him there because he is so weak he cannot even sit up by himself, nor walk more than a few steps.
I'll try to keep you posted, meanwhile, take care all, and LF, hope you're getting some pain relief soon.

donna

Donna, I pray that James gets better and that you have the strength to help him.


Len, I wish you the best and hope that you get some relief for your pain.

Good morning. Donna, hope all went well this morning. My car is at the shop getting new brakes, my neighbor followed and brought me home,
the shop will call when it is ready.

All have a great day.

Last day of August and we are experiencing some early fall-like days. Here's hoping that September brings better outcomes for all Cruisemates that are facing challenges.

I second that emotion.


September is the month that I first arrived in the USA.

Donna, good thoughts and prayers to you and James.

Lenny, I hope you feel better very soon.

We're spending a lot of time running from doctor to doctor. Who remembers when you only had one doctor who took care of everything??

Watching the Razorbacks vs Florida A&M. It's our first game of the season and we're expected to win.

I'd forgotten, but that's very true! I probably went from my late teen's until my mid fortie's without any doctor at all except a gyno (for RX)!


But here we are, using every available specialist we can find ! Otherwise, we'd probably be gone !

When I was a kid if you were sick you went to a doctor .He (or she) was not referred to as a PCP or an Internist just a doctor. I know there were specialists but I cannot recall ever going to one till the late 60's .
