Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

The anti-inflammatory has kicked in and my husband's feeling better. He's just not into having cold packs or the heating pad - must be a guy thing because I reach for them in a heartbeat. Anyway, I'm waiting on a call from the Valley's physical therapist. I'm thinking now we'll go there and see what...

Re: My dear Joon...

I was hoping to get a referral for a chiropractor for Duane, but it's not that easy. Not any more. It used to be that your doctor would refer you to someone that they knew, and had sent other patients to. Now you have to find your own that your insurance will cover. I'm telling them that he's on reg...

Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

Duane has scoliosis :/ . He woke up complaining of right lower back pain, and I was able to get him seen this morning. We were worried it was his kidney - he's has stones in the past. So the doctor is palpating his back and side, and thumping on where the organ is. His pain wasn't there. Dr. W_: &qu...

Scoliosis...

Did not see that coming. Sixty-seven years old, and this is the first we're hearing of it. So, Duane's got super duper pain meds on board, and a recommendation for physical therapy/chiropractics. Geeze. Uncle Dickon strikes again! :lol:

Re: My dear Joon...

Duane came into my room early, saying that he wants to go to the doctor. His back hurts, and I gave him some of my migraine formula aspirin. It helped the pain, but as the morning wore on, it turns out that he's been having this pain for months. Months. Gets up with it every morning. Just when he wa...

Re: My dear Joon...

We just got home from seeing a public presentation of The Gate . It was wonderful (this was the third time I'd seen it), but I shook like a leaf the entire time. I hate this. I did manage to get it under control by dropping my head to my shoulder, and closing my eyes, but Duane just had to grab my t...

Re: My dear Joon...

Okay. I changed my mind. I'm not donating anything; I'm keeping it all. This is about as close as I get to hoarding, just as long as I can fit everything I keep in one of those fruitcake tins; I own two of them. And I put the crucifix back on the rosary, the wooden one it came with, and just as soon...

Re: My dear Joon...

The thyroid appointment went well. For the next three months Duane's to have labs done the first few days of each month. Right now, he's on the 5 mg tablets to tap down the hormones, and depending on what the results are, he's to stay on them. I apologized to the doctor; I was really scared, and I'm...

Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

Happy belated 4th of July, nonetheless. :hug: :bday: :downapint: It was nice. We were finally able to see Star Trek: Beyond , and we loved it. There's a lot going on here as well. I feel like we might have our current government for not much longer, there's too much friction in this coalition. To b...

Re: My dear Joon...

The Honey had labs drawn on Monday, and we were told that the thyroid is spiking - which is something that it can do after the 131 swallow. So, he's back on the Methimazole, and it's a whole 5 mg tablet instead of half until his appointment, and that's today. He's also back on Ritalin. The Adderall ...

Re: My dear Joon...

Happy Fourth! Britain, will you take us back? Please? We'll be good! We have cookies! Anybody? *sigh* Today was laundry day, so no rest for the wicked. I got four loads done between 3 and 7, and went back to bed until eleven. With the temps up over 100, I decided to heat up some Kartoffelsalat (cou...

Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

I was telling Duane, how much I'd love to know what the Founding Fathers would have thought of this dreck. Especially Franklin. Nobody could touch him when it came to the clever.

I feel like wearing a black armband today...

Re: My dear Joon...

I can't sleep. It's so annoying when it's hot (the high Sunday is 90, but it'll feel like 108.) There's nothing to do except stay inside, and avoid what passes for news as much as possible. And buy stuff online. I did it again :roll: . I bought a Saint Francis statue, made by the same company as the...

Re: My dear Joon...

My Anglican beads arrived today! :D They are so nice! I thought they were awesome, but holding them is wonderful. They've got such heft, and prettiness, and there's a warmth as well. So, I found myself thinking, maybe have these for The Bab instead? Like have the knot be a God Sufficieth , the cruci...
