Up Date on the Mrs
« on: December 28, 2023, 07:36:01 AM »
The tumor is still there but has shrank and not spread.  Last week they took a biopsy and got the word yesterday and there is no cancer cells in it.  They will monitor it closely but a big step forward.  There were some times it was in doubt she would make it to Christmas.  She is still having side affects from the radiation and has been in the hospital since I called  911 at 3 am Christmas Eve, she was having trouble getting up and since her and I weigh about the same it is well beyond what I am allowed to lift and don't want to end up like September talking to each other in different ER rooms and then from different rooms on different floors.  It is funny now, it was not funny then.  She also spent Thanksgiving in hospital and may spend New Years there or rehab a hospital. 

She fell last Wed and Sat, Wed was at Drs office and it appears she cracked a rib, but there she had plenty of help, Sat she fell getting up the front steps and I was able to get her up, but despite her wanting to be home on Christmas I ended up sending her away early in the morning.   

I am doing OK and with this new news if she gets so I can leave her at home and want to make the muster but in a limited capacity as make town runs and just supper for the campers.  They put me on a mild anti anxiety med because the aforementioned problem in Sept I went because my BP was 197 over 105 and a heart rate of 155 even almost the same 2 hours later when I had napped and took nitro.  That's up where it is easy to blow a gasket.  Despite some occasional stress the numbers have not went near that with the med. 

And if you wonder what me, the dog and the cats did for Christmas Dinner, we stayed home and had the good stuff.  That is Annie Lee's skillet she left me and those wieners are imported from Ioway.  As anyone should know it takes real guts to eat good weiners. ::)

A perfect illustration of the age old dilemma . . .
why do wieners come in packs of 7 but hotdog buns in packs of 8.

And once you open the package and remove two for yourself and one for the Mrs., unless you have tremendous strength of will to set aside the remainder for another day's meal, you might as well just cook 'em all at the same time.

At best, doctoring today turns you into a lab experiment where they keep tinkering with meds and tests until they find something that kinda works. Glad you and Rita seem to have been able to suffer through.

That sounds lewd and immoral for some reason.

Hijack all you want. Remember cheap ones have 10 so you have 2 for beans and weenies.   

The 7 is actually just right because it seems there will always be one defective bun.

"One defective bun" means you sit with a list?

I would guess a defective bun would be a tad uncomfortable.  I wonder if there's a prosthetic device for that condition.............

I have been known to cut them in half lengthwise [using 2 buns for one dog] in order to have more room for my mustard, sautéd onions and kraut. Mmmmm.
Best wishes for a better 2024. Hospitals are a terrible place to spend the holidays.
