I cannot believe it is August 27th and soon summer will end and kids will be back in school. We have had some pretty weird weather for summer too. Worse is the notion that winter is gonna be colder this year than last year. That is not something I wanted or need to hear.
Today I shall attend my first, ever, physical therapy session. I have no idea what I did to my right shoulder but it aches and I mentioned this to the VA provider who sent me down for X-rays. Then I waited a few days and sure enough the VA said I needed PT and I could have it wherever I wished, which was not at the VA center three hours from me. Plus they sent me some cream to apply and suggested, strongly, I wear gloves. The suggestion was so strong, they sent me 300 gloves (100 per box) and three tubes of cream. It does work but don't let it touch other spots or you will pay the price, I am using the gloves, thank you very much.
Also a few months ago I mentioned I had this dry cough and was given some pill to take, three times a day. When the cough went away, I just took the pill in the morning and at night. Now, I'm thinking it was all due to this heavy pollen but whatever, this pill worked. When I inquired if I could get another refill, I was told perhaps I needed "Omepazole" which is used for acid reflux amongst other things. One week of that pill and I stopped taking it, sore throat, nausea and diarrhea convinced me this is not for me. Called the clinic to let them know and haven't heard a word from them!
As long as I'm on the medical kick, saw the eye surgeon the 20th and yes, I need cataract surgery. That will happen in January, both eyes but not at the same time. Get this shit,when done, I most likely will need reading glasses only!
So while the summer weather has been goofy, Clint and I have definitely enjoyed the pool. We swim almost every day or when the weather permits and he loves to dive for dive sticks, etc. I swear he prefers to swim underwater than on top but that's okay, he's having fun and knows his limits.
The worse part is always having to put the ladder in and out of the pool. It's not exactly heavy but awkward and just a nuisance.
My son-n-law has said, more than once, "best investment you ever made Meme."
I really miss the Minnesota kids and wish they lived closer or we could visit more often. As my dau -n- law is having medical issues, traveling here is just impossible. They are using all their sick and vacation time going and from the Mayo Clinic. Hopefully she has found the right meds and is on the mend. But I'm thinking next summer, we really should head out for a visit.
Oh ya in November another baby,a boy, shall arrive and I think Kel is ready now. She is getting bigger than a barn and he's one active little boy, kicking and moving constantly. So we'll have a baby here for Thanksgiving. She is hoping he arrives on her brother's birthday too.
Well, that is my update for now. You all have a great day. Hugs
