Carol

Happy to be here this morning.  For a while, I was not online with you ---I was able to read the posts but could not reply.  Strange. 

Amanda:  Thank you for sending the obituary of your grandmother.  We wish you well in the coming days.

Larry:  It was very thoughtful for someone to bring meals over to you and Pat. 

Janet:  Sometimes, it seems like all the news is gloomy - prayers for your family including you.

Ellie:  Rebot - I think a lot  of us would like to be able to go back to the smaller areas because there are so many people now.  Enjoy

We have a lot going on this morning - our daughter arrives tomorrow for six days.  I had my first skin cancer scanning yesterday and all is well.   

Larry Hanna

Hi Everyone. We are expecting it to get to around 70 degrees today with some rain later in the day.  My visit to the pacemaker clinic went well yesterday and my battery should last about 15 months more before the pacemaker/defibrillator will need to be replaced.  The technician told me they do that at my cardiologists office since it is a simple procedure as long as the three wires into the heart are in good shape.  Scott had been to the dentist yesterday morning for a crown preparation so he wasn't feeling very good and didn't spend any time with us.  His jaws were aching but the dentist gave him a prescription for something to help relax this jaws and he was feeling better last evening.  He will be out again late this afternoon to have dinner with us.  He is bringing pizza and a few other things for our dinner tonight with something we can freeze for later meals.  He said he would stop by his store and make the pizza himself and then bring it out here uncooked so we can have it fresh out of the oven.  I was pretty tired all day yesterday but do feel less tired today and plan to take things nice and quiet.  Last night after using my oxygen concentrator for 3 hours it dies and wouldn't restart.  I have called about it this morning and they are to bring out another unit today.  Fortunately I am not dependent on the oxygen as many people are so I still had a good night's sleep.

Amanda, thanks for sharing the link of your Grannies obit. 

Rebot, one of the reason we are so happy we moved to South Carolina and a small town is the pace of life.  We had enough of the big city hustle and fast pace of life during our work career and then the 20 years or so after retirement living close to Atlanta in a community that went from about 100,000 people to almost 900,000 people before we left to come here. I have already sent the Samsung items I bought back to Amazon yesterday afternoon when Scott dropped the box off at the UPS store and my credit card account was credited with the return an hour or so later.  I like your saying about friends as it is true. 

Janet, I am going to try to preparing longer posts but no guarantees. I have been keeping an eye on your watercolor painting via your Facebook page.  Glad you enjoyed the class. So sorry your sister is back in the hospital and not doing well. 

Jackie, so happy that you are being able to get out for those social events.  It is important that we be with friends and acquaintances as it sure keeps our perspective in order, at least for me.  Our conversations with our cyber friends is also important to keep us connected to the rest of the world beyond our own communities.

Carol, we really do appreciate the kindness and thoughtfulness of friends to bring the meals occasionally.  Glad your skin cancer check went well yesterday.

Rebot

Greetings Jackie    Yes if we could meet cyber friends in person, it would be as you say the icing on the cake.  I would like to think it would be possible, but I doubt it will happen.

Rebot

Greetings Janet   As I will send this message at 6.08pm [Thursday], by my reckoning it will be 1.08pm where you live.   

Rebot

Greetings Carol    Busy places like London and  New York, is life in the fast lane.  I have been to New York and I thought London was busy!

Rebot

Greetings Larry    At our time of life, taking it easy is what we do.  I have good mobility and I am more fortunate than hubby who has limited mobility, but he does not grumble about it to me.  I spent many years taking a 75-minute journey on the London underground [Tube] to work and the same time journey home.  I was glad when I became sixty and could claim my state retirement pension, plus my companies' pension.

Glad you enjoyed my quote.  Do call me Ellie.

Jacqueline

This is a duplicate from my today S & F's posting..

Well not such good news on the Richard front...Richard went for his Cardiologist Consultant hospital appointment today, gave him an ECG, not quite the news he was expecting...First he is to have breathing tests at the lung function dept, followed by an X-ray scan of his neck blood vessels, followed by a coronary angiogram procedure, followed by open heart surgery - his aortic valve...Well neither of us was expecting that...told he will be in hospital for a week ( open heart surgery )...he was also asked about me at home, told them I have PPMS, said they will make arrangements for me...

Greetings Jackie  Keep us informed about Richard please.  Sending best health wishes.

Rebot

Greetings Janet   Sorry I forgot to mention about your sister Doris.  She is in our prayers and sending you best health wishes.

Larry Hanna

Hi Everyone.  It is another rainy morning but the temperature is staying very nice in the mid to high 60's.  We had a very late evening last night as Scott didn't get here until after 7 pm and by the time the pizza was baked it was close to 8 pm, when I normally retire for the night.  He sleeps very well when it is raining and so he didn't hear his alarm and didn't wake up until after 6:30 and then had to go to his store and fix the pizza.  I am not sure what time he went home last evening as I had to retire around 10 pm.  He took care of several small chores for us, which we always appreciate.  I expect him back over this morning for a few minutes.  He won't stay too long as he has to go to work around 4 pm today.  I was so tired I didn't even need to drink my Chamomile tea as went to sleep and didn't get up until after 8 am and am still still exhausted.  So it will be a quiet day for me.

Jackie, hopefully the heart surgery will restore some of Richard's strength and he will be able to resume a more active life.  Glad they are going to see that you are all right while he is not there with you.  If you don't have one I would strongly encourage you to get sometime of Lifeline device so you could signal for help.

Ellie, for many years I had long commutes to work, including a number of them using the subway system in Washington, DC as well as an hour or more commute time for the many years in Atlanta.

Rebot

Greetings Larry  Thinking about the London underground workday journeys I took makes me feel tired thinking about them.  You take it easy.

Janet

Thank you for the prayers for my sister Doris.  She is in God's hands, and he knows each day she will be here, and we know that if she cannot stay, that we will be reunited with her in heaven.

Larry, sorry about your very long day, and hope a day or two of rest will restore part of your energy.  I cannot imagine having such a long commute as both you and Ellie had for years!

Jackie, I hope Richard gets good recovery from his bypass and other treatments.  Larry knows all about heart problems; and that some people live many years with diminished heart function.  I'm so pleased that they will be keeping an eye on you, making sure you have what you need including help if you need that.  Please keep us informed on Richard's condition.

Carol, you are probably now enjoying your daughter's visit.  What is her name?

Ellie, there are so many books about London years ago, and every one I have read painted such a dark, depressing picture of the poverty and squalor of those days that I've never had a desire to visit London!  I'm sure it wasn't ALL that way, either then nor now.

I think I should go find something to eat!  I'm hungry!  :)

Greetings Janet  I am not sure what books you were reading, but it is not the London I have known for over seventy years.  The books might have been writing about London some 100-110 years ago.


It is such a vibrant city and behind Tokyo which is the busiest city on Earth, then New York, London is the third busiest.  And the transport system of London including the metro and the buses is considered the best on earth.

Marilyn

Hello everyone. Jackie,  I will be praying for Richard and of course for you as well. I know that I am so blessed   by all the prayers that all y'all have said for me over the years and mroe recently for Keith.

He is doing very well now, the wound is very tiny and should be completely closed in about a week. His memory has improved now that all the infection is gone from his body.

...first it seems they are to monitor his iron levels before the opp goes ahead...

Marilyn...
...thank you, I am also thankful that at last your Keith is on the mend...all down to the professionalism of his medical team and our members regular prayers on his behalf...

Has anyone heard from Pat or Judy lately?

Hi Everyone. We do have the sun this morning and should get into the low 70's.  I am going to read all of the postings since yesterday.  Yesterday was not a good day for me in terms of any energy and today seems to be getting the same start.  I will just be having another very quiet day of rest.

I spent most of the day at our annual Health Fair put on by our members-owned Pioneer Electric and Pioneer Communications Companies.  My! There was a mob of people out there!  The most I've ever seen there at one time, ever!  I am curious as to the actual number of people from whom they drew blood today! After standing in line for about 45 minutes, which just about did me in, I finally reached the front of the line.  They had phlebotomists from our whole area, and farther, some from Denver, even!  The guy who drew my blood was really good, thank God.
There were other booths with health-related things, I browsed and picked up pens, information, bookmarks, etc. Then they had a lovely lunch for us-free of charge-which was barbecue, salad, green beans, mashed potatoes and gravy and hot rolls, plus drinks and cake.  I did forego the bread, potatoes and gravy, so as not to knock myself out of ketosis.

At the Pioneer Communications meeting, I won the final door prize of the day, which is a really good, but HEAVY cooler, I couldn't lift it at all!  Some very nice people carried it to my car and loaded it for me. I don't really have a need for it, but some of my kids will be able to use it, I'm sure.

Son-in-law Jeff was in a singing contest today in Liberal, and was chosen to sing in the finals tomorrow.  I hope the big storm predicted doesn't hit so we can go to Liberal and hear him.  Abby is home for the weekend so of course we want to see her, too!

I'll stop before this gets any longer!

Hi Everyone. We will be in the mid-70's this afternoon and there is a 100% chance of rain around 5 pm.  Otherwise it will be a cloudy day.  I have had a couple of very tired days where I didn't feel like doing anything, including using my iPad when in my easy chair.  I am not sure today is going to be any better.  I had a very good nights sleep but just getting ready to face the day has left me tired (same old story).  I don't seem to be making any progress for recovery but will continue to be optimistic that better days are ahead.  I have read the postings since yesterday but am going to pass on individual comments once again.

Larry Hanna

Hi Everyone.  We are to have a cloudy and much cooler day today with it staying the mid-50's although the sky is currently clear and we have  sun at the moment.  We had a lot of rain yesterday and in the late afternoon we and other areas around us were in a tornado warning areas.  We were ok but the area just North of us had two people hurt and trees down and property damage.  Just checking in this morning.  I took a shower this morning and it left me pretty exhausted, which isn't saying much.  I will just take things easy once again today, which seems to have become my way of life.

Marilyn

Larry there comes a time in our lives that we just have to slow down and do one day at a time, that became very clear to me when I had that awful AFIB episode in December. I still keep somewhat busy with all my activities in Furry Friends and the daily walks with Freckles. I am so much more aware of what my body is telling me.

Today I am taking my car in  for some fluid changes that need to be done. That and Freckles walks are all that is on my to do list for today. I have been working on crocheting a baby afghan for  the family baby due in late may, It is about half finished.

Larry, I'm always happy to see a post from you, even if it only says "I'm here!"  As one who has always stayed busy, very often pushing myself beyond where I should, I, too am finding it necessary to listen to my body, and SLOW DOWN.  And it's okay. I get done what needs done, have learned not to stress over what I cannot do, or ask for help with things I can no longer do by myself.  That's the normal with getting older, but sometimes we fight it as long as we can.

Darrel is finally ready to go to the gym, so I will come back here and talk a bit more when we return!

Went to our bingo's church hall midday where they were starting up a brand new Monday of board games...Although only five or six of us turned up, the church vicar in plain casual clothes sat at our table ( two tables going ) and joined in our chosen game of Uno...We had so much fun, laughter all around as we vied to be competitive as we turned over our playing cards that either helped or hindered our next player. Well I won the most games but I was only competitive with Richard ( beginners luck ) which caused so much laughter..The vicar made and served us tea and coffee with a biscuit..A most enjoyable couple of hours. When I mentioned I had better be aware of turning the air blue he said he had been a policeman ( Birmingham, Handsworth riots 32 years ago ) so had heard it all, again this caused some more laughter..

We wont be able to make next Monday as Richard has got his neck scan ( US Doppler Carotid Artery Both ) booked and will take some while.

Hi Everyone. Another beautiful morning although cloudy but the sun is suppose to shine this afternoon with a high of 53.  Pat has gone to a routine doctor's appointment but shouldn't be gone too long.  Today is the day I have to fill my medicine boxes but it a job I always dread for some strange reason.  I am beginning to wonder when I will turn the corner and begin to feel better.  Our Sunday School class had a chili party last evening and friends brought us containers of chili and soup and corn bread that were left so we have meals prepared for several evenings.  Once again I have read all of the postings but am just going to check in as not up to making individual comments.

Carol

We take our daughter to the airport today. She has been so helpful and fun - helping cook for our other visitors. 

Rebot:  Our daughter studied for a semester at the London School of Economics and her daughter did the same.  They loved being close to other countries and managed to talk us into taking more trips.  Don spent many trips to London too and I got to go along.  We were treated so friendly by everyone.  Your home town sounds ever more inviting.

Thing of all of you this morning.  Praying for each and everyone's issues.  Take care - I have several more visitors.   Some day, we will have to skinny down the list - this year has been unusually heavy.   

Janet

I didn't make it back in here yesterday. Nothing important to add, I guess.

Larry, as always, good to see you!

Carol, I don't know how you manage to keep up with so many guests!  The thing about living here in SW Kansas is, if people come to see us, it's because they really want to see US, and not because of the beauty  or scenic grandeur of the area!  (This is in no way a reference to anyone not wanting to see you!  I'm sure they all do!)
Glad you had nice time with daughter, and that she was a help to you, as well.

Jackie, good to read that you had a good time at Bingo, and visiting with the pastor!

I got a chiropractic adjustment today, which I really hope will make me feel better. Have to get my energy back, it's time to pack for that trip!

See you all tomorrow!

Hey folks, I am sorry I haven't started a new page for the month, I haven't been well and the date/computer have been the last things on my mind.  I am today finally feeling better, so will get the new month started tomorrow.

Thankyou for your patience.

There you are Judy...

I have my Monthly MS Social this evening, this is the one that is a 31 mile one way car journey, I have always looked forwards to my once a month visit...Tonight's subject - topic will be our annual AGM, resume of the past year and accounts, this should have been last month but we had our fun talk with Kay Townsend on her history of her family's fairground during, before, and after the war. I know this went down well as my monthly newsletter said so, they will get her back again... :thumbsup:

A piece of interesting info Kay told us...

Quoting: " Also, I wonder how many of you remember going on a fairground ride where you sat in a rocket - shaped car? Did you know that you were actually riding in an auxiliary fuel tank that the bombers carried so that they could get safely back from their air raids?! "

Hi Everyone. It is going to be sunny all day with a high in the low 50's.  I just want to check in this morning.
