Re: Eagle Cam! Watch Live!

Update January 19, 2019 We understand that everyone is very excited for the DC cams to begin streaming, but we are still waiting for our internet connection to be established inside the National Arboretum. As most know, the Arboretum is closed due to the government shutdown, which has significantly...

:hug: :hug: :hug: It's a nightmare, and this is Healthcare? - my 'Brought to You by Ancestry' 58%/42% Russian, Eastern European, Germanic Europe behind it is! Anyway, we await referral from neurologist before we put down one penny for anything. I was posting here about Michael. He choked on Sunday l...

Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

Aw, honey... :cry: :hug: ...God...I'm so sorry. For us, it turns out the insurance does cover his prescriptions. The bad news is that the TD medication costs 7,000 dollars a month - which if it weren't so ridiculous I'd laugh. That's over twice what our income is a month - "Good news, sir! You ...

Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

My Honey has been diagnosed with tardive dyskinesia. It's permanent, and for him it manifests as a lot of mouth movements, his left eye is constantly opening and closing but not like winking or blinking, his right hand is constantly pinching, and he's dancing in place whenever he's trying to just st...

:hug: :hug: :hug: I wish, Paddy, that I could just put on my galoshes, wade on over a couple of ponds, and take a bus to your door and help out. Hang in there, sweetheart. :hug:

Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

First of all, Paddy, thank you for the beautiful E-cards :hug:. I love them both, but especially the New Year's one with all the clocks. Your mom, your sister and you are never far from my thoughts. The second opinion sounds like a good idea; I hope it all goes well. Enjoy your time off, sweetie :hu...

Re: My dear Joon...

The 25th started out well. I woke up, and went about my routine, adding the hour and ten minutes needed to bake the casserole I'd assembled the night before. By 11 AM, we were dusting snow off the car, and loading up with said casserole, 2 liters Coke, and last presents. When we got to the house, Mi...

Re: My dear Joon...

The library charged us 24.95 for the paperback. This morning I took my one returned Christmas card, after adding the missing suite number, and dropped it back in the post. I called Sister yesterday, and found out that was the problem. It was nice of the crew not to cancel the stamp. I love Sister. S...

Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

I put together Mike's casserole to bake in the morning, and then we're off to see the guys with their gifts; we'll have lunch with them, give the staff at the house candy, and then take another box of candy to Travis's caregivers - along with the biggest Kit-Kat bar that they make, for him. After th...

Re: My dear Joon...

It's Tuesday afternoon. It's supposed to rain on Thursday. So, why am I hurting now? My knees, hips, shoulders and fingers just ache, and they didn't yesterday. I finally got around to sewing the Honey's bedskirt to the box springs, while he was watching football. I even got all of the laundry done ...

Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

Sweetie, I am so sorry that your mom is having such trouble. I'm sorry it's taken me so long to respond. I hope that she's managing okay; a friend of mine just went through the same thing a couple of months ago. She's fine now. I pray your mother has as good an outcome. I'm having fun with the calen...

Re: My dear Joon...

By 1 AM, that night, the bleeding had stopped and the Honey hasn't had a problem since. As for me, with the med increase, not so much yet, but it won't be a week until Tuesday. The nurse that was checking me in asked if I could drive, and I showed her how everything quits when I'm behind the wheel. ...

Re: My dear Joon...

Well, another day, another crisis. The Honey bit his tongue during dinner, around 6. He said it was bleeding, but he's done this before and it took care of itself. But by 8:30 it was really coming on, and I got him a glass of salt water to swish around. Thanks to Jeannie for giving me too much for m...
