Ted was to have chemo this week. He had his blood work yesterday and they said one count was too low and they put the chemo off till next week. I have a dentist appointment next week also. When it rains it pours. No breaks.It's disheartening.
I have been edging the brick walkway here. Too hot for me to do it all at once, So I am 2/3's of the way done. Slow but sure I guess. Ted did get home in time to mow yesterday before the rains came. He can mow if he wears a mask. I do not want him mowing if it's too hot though. He enjoys it , because it's about the only work he can do. Good thing it's zero turn mower.
Hope all of you are well. Please try to stay that way. Staying healthy is our full time job these days. Keeping you all in my prayers. XO

We see the doctor again in two weeks about more maintenance chemo. Dr. B. said he would lower the amount of days to 3. Ted has been saying he feels much better. The dosage of chemo was lower the last time.
Ted is 54 days away from his year marker of the bone marrow transplant. The doctor told Ted he could not go on the fishing trip he had planned for the second week of May. Ted and his family go fishing in May to Reelfoot Lake in Tenn.
I could see the disappointment on Ted's face. I actually cried later. But doctor Birhiray said , "Better to cancel this year and be able to go the next twenty years." Told Ted his counts were too low and he would be getting those lower chemo treatments. Which does make Ted weak.
I don't mind saying, I am tired. I had planned to have my cataracts taken care of soon. Not sure they will do it as I have a retina detaching. My family eye doctor wants me to go to the eye specialist In Indianapolis (of course). He says they will have better ways to check my eyes and they will say if I am ready for surgery.
Well that's what we have been doing , going to doctor office visits. I have learned the decor is a snooze and the chairs are so awful. LOL. Oh I can't help it.
Praying for all of you in need. Praying for our country and our world. XO

Monday the 17th, Ted got a CT scan of his lungs recorded on a disk to take to the pulmonary clinic in Indianapolis.
Then we went to the cardiologist the very next day. Ted received a good report. The dr did raise one med. ,another follow up in March.
Thursday, I got my taxes done...big happy smile, I get 21 dollars back from the state. I would celebrate but want to save that. Oh wait that didn't even pay for the tax lady.
On this past Monday is when Ted saw the pulmonary doctor. She did not see anything out of the ordinary with Ted's lungs, from the CT scan disk. They did a stress test and said he did not need to be on oxygen. That was a big happy moment for Ted. (and me) But the dr ordered an allergy panel . I ask that she have it done at the Franciscan hospital while we are there in a couple weeks. Why should we run all over the state for the drs?
On Tuesday, I saw my dentist. Had a cleaning and that sharp sticking to measure around my gums. Yikes. But I got a good report and was very happy.
In between all these drs. and hospital visits...we go to the grocery, hardware, and $ store. Sometimes just to get out of the house. Always wearing our face masks , use sanitizers in the car and wash our hands as soon as we get home.
Ready for some warm weather and flowers. Hope all of you are safe. XO

Monday was the longest day. Labs then chemo at Riverview. Then the same day,on to Franciscan south of Indy for check up and first round of baby shots. Ted did well. He knows why babies cry, said his shoulder was so sore for two days.
I have still to get my grandson over to work on my computer. There's no way I going back to the Geeks around here. They wiped out too many files and pictures. I am thinking of adopting a smart kid. LOL. Just kidding. Gotta a lot of love to give, but not near enough time.
Hope all of you are getting thru this winter and staying healthy. We are doing our best,wearing our masks everywhere. Not at home or in the car. Had a lady ask me is I was wearing it to stay healthy...well yes. The clerk at the $ store told me he needs a haz-mat suit some days. :)
Take care of one another and yourselves. Thank you so very much for all your good wishes, prayers and thoughts. Sending them to you too. XO

Ted will be seeing his heart dr again this month...plus a pulmonologist, all those appointments within this month. All we get to done is go to see drs. Wears me out. Ted has no energy. It's shortness of breath. That is why he will have ct scan then see the lung doctor. Wish us luck. Ted may need to change inhalers or have oxygen once in a while.
Hopefully we will have some good days this month to be able to make all our appointments.
Hoping to visit all of you more often. Just 49 days till spring...can you believe it? Take care. XO
