Past Two Weeks....

   We have had some mixed up weather for February... Some  warm days with very good roads to travel. Some  rains, snow and wind the last week of this month.
 We did have about 4 inches of snow. Some melted as soon as it hit the ground. Then some stayed awhile. LOL

 Then it is starting to melt as our days warm up. Making me hope we get no more snow. But I know March can be every kind of weather.
 We have had golden sunsets when they get to be seen.  I get out to get a photo every now and then.
   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

Busy Times.....

 This month is half over. It has been a busy time for Ted and I .  Ted's energy seemed to be better this week. Yesterday was the last dose of chemo for this maintenance round. The Riverview hospital has some awesome nurses and a great new facility for infusions. Some spots are little rooms with electric fireplaces and TV.  Ted was in them most everyday.
 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.
  We were blessed with good roads this whole week. We had a big snow but got out to the main roads and traveling was fine. Yesterday was the coldest day around these parts. Wind chills 15 below zero. Good thing I had refilled the back porch wood box. We should be getting into the 40's for the next few day.  Just  35 days till spring. Oh boy, I am so ready . :)
  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
