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

    1. Bless your heart Vee, I m hoping we all get a good spring. Have to pray for us all to stay healthy and strong. Hope you are getting loving help with making it to drs. It's hard to ask for help. It's very pretty out today but cold. Tomorrow will be around 58 degrees...wowwee that sounds good. Long ago, I would be raking around in the flowerbeds with those temps. Here's to better days for all of us. Blessings to you honey, xoxo, Susie

  5. Oh Susie, your schedule is endless. When you are the caregiver it seems so. Glad to hear good reports on Ted and your dentist too. All good. Nice that Ted won't have to have the oxygen. My dearest, is finally leveling off and we seem to be able to manage the meds and water retention. Daily battles, but with the Lord's help we are winners. Looking forward to putting up my Spring decorations and some flowers. Love and Hugs

  7. Wow all that traveling to doctors and such. Hope you are keeping track cause that is a tax deduction, at least in WI. not sure where you live. Glad to hear things are looking up, always good to get a good report from the Dr. Spring will be her in no time. March can be a wild month though, hope not too much snow. Take care and keep looking up. Blessings.

    1. Thank you Linda. Ted never was on oxygen and was grateful to not have to be on it . The lung dr. thought with his shortness of breath at times he might need it. But his report was very good.

    1. Terri, I had to get a new vehicle to get back and forth to drs. and hospitals. Ted's truck has over 300,000 miles on it...which he is so very proud of. LOL. My Jeep just wasn't as trustworthy as it should be for that much traveling. So not having that worry has helped with my nerves. But not my savings. Blessings to you, xoxo, Susie

  15. Wow, you have been busy ! I'm filling my calendar out for upcoming doctors appointments, is it just my imagination, or do we seem to be at the doctors, getting checked for more things, than we ever did before reaching that infamous Medicare hop-on-board-date...
    Glad to hear that Ted does not require the oxygen, I fear once you get to that stage, there is no coming off it.
    Love your snow pictures, I'm hoping it is all over for another season :)

    1. Jo, I can not even remember my parents going to the dr so much. I think it's a dr for every ailment now. Our old G.P.'s could do it all.
      Oh Jo, I told Ted my very self, that if he had to have oxygen, I think our bodies get used to being helped out and they won't come back to where it isn't neccessary to do it's own thing any more. Does that make sense, what I am trying to say? LOL.
      I say good bye snow, don't want to see it till next Christmas , then just for that day. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  21. Hi Susie,
    This weather for us has been pretty crazy. Spring for a few days like today and then back to winter. That is what is keeping all these virus's alive. Glad Ted got such great news. He has come a long way with his fight against cancer and recovery. Big High Five! Have a good week.

  23. Great reports from the doctors! While you didn't get a HUGE tax refund, you didn't have to pay (except for the tax lady). AND, you got it done which is more than I can say for me. We are expecting a VERY rainy week. Spring is coming, I can feel it in the air. Have a blessed day and week ahead, HUGS!

  24. Oh, Susie, I'm always happy to hear how you are doing. Your weather has been much snowier than ours. We hardly had any!

  28. Glad to read the good news on Ted. How wonderful Susie! Oh girl...you do get some snow. I was just happy to have a little snow on our mountain trip but I am sure if I had snow like you do I might not be so happy huh? My youngest daughter and her family got snowed in once while in the mountains! YIKES! Dentist: Well, it took me years to get over FEAR of going to the dentist. STILL NOT a happy camper but handle it much better than what I used too. Now when I get my teeth cleaned my dentist tells me how proud of me he is! LOL!!!! Warm here in Florida today. The thing about Florida weather is it can be cold with freezing temps and then HOT the next day. Always have you and Ted in my thoughts Susie. Hugs and blessings, Cindy
