Sensi - So sorry to hear of Chance's health challenge. How extensive is the surgery and is Chance healthy otherwise? Any possibility you'd be able to take him to Davis University Veterinary School outside of Sac.?
Check into Care Credit for Chance's surgery. It is a credit card for medical, dental and veterinary expenses. They offer promotional payment plans for 0% interest as long as you finish paying off the total within that period. Otherwise the interest is like 26.00% retroactive. I have used it many times in the past, but always made sure to pay within the promotional period. The provider usually can offer promotions of 12-18 or 24 mos. depending on the total cost of the procedure. I hope this is helpful to you. I am going to need to use this avenue for Kirby's surgery next week. (Neutering)
Sas - If a person has hypertension and an arrhythmia, would it be safe to use the Adderall or Ritilan?
Also, you may want to place a stool or something next to your tub and leave a towel there so you don't have to toodle through the house all wet and risk slipping. ;0)
Feline - That pic of St. Anne's Church is very pretty. What year was it first built? I love old churches.
Loverly - Pics of the churches are wonderful. The architecture is amazing. Especially considering much of it has been around for centuries. The palaces are very extravagant, but so beautiful. Can you imagine how many poor people could be feed & educated with the money spent on those structures? This seems like a trip of a lifetime.
Wenchie - Hi to you too. Sorry you're experiencing the awful fatigue. You aren't that far out from finishing your radiation treatment, so just give yourself a break and listen to your body. But please NO sleepy mowing. Too dangerous!
Also, I saw some really cool posts on FB last night that showed how one can grow fruits, herbs and some veggies from seeds of the ones you have. It showed how to take strawberry seeds and prepare them for planting. Also, a lemon tree, tomatoes, avocados, etc. Pretty cool stuff. One could spend a lot of time on FB if you're not careful.
Mags - Just waving Hi. How are you feeling?
Well, I took the Kirbster for a walk on Saturday to a small park about a 1/2 mile from where I live. Once there I let him run on his retractable leash and after I regrouped my energy I decided to try and walk to a friends house to see if I could do it. Once I got there it turns out she wasn't home, but she had given me permission to rest on her porch for as long as I needed. Kirby and I visited with her kitty Max, who wasn't too sure about this wiggly, noisy little puppy who had disturbed his nap on the porch railing. Anyway, by this time it was about 82 degrees and humid. So Kirby and I just walked at a slow leisurely pace and we stopped at the Safeway store for a beverage and I rested in the A/C for about an hour, then continued the last 1/2 mile back home. All in all we walked approx. 2 miles total. My hips & shoulders sure complained. I rested for awhile once home, then for some unknown reason decided to attack the weeds in my yard. I barely made it to church yesterday and I was kinda hoping someone would just shoot me and put me out of my misery (not really). I doubt I will ever learn the definition of MODERATION. Ahh! so thick headed sometimes.
Then last evening I had the opportunity to talk with my sister and we were able to get caught up. Her oldest son who has Asperger's, but does very well in school and sports and was chosen to go to a football camp at Notre Dame last week. That is my sister's husbands' Alma Mater and both of her sons want to go to college there too. We discussed my flying out there again, but there is just no way because the flights are just too high. I am not sure how or if this will ever happen. But we will have to see. Our father would have been 81 on May 8th if he hadn't been murdered in 2000.
Anyway, I now need to go shower and take care of some errands, so I be back later. Have a great afternoon ladies.
