Ruth: Hope your elbow stops hurting. Wonder if Advil would help. I have not watched much of the funeral.

Karen: Hope your procedure was uneventful. So happy for you with your dd coming this week!

Survived the colonoscopy. No polyps, yet still on 5 year schedule as considered "high risk". New GI doctor so first time we met was in the procedure room. I brought up my chronic constipation and he said to schedule an appointment in the office!! Seems each time I have one, it is harder to rebound. My first one 15 years ago was a piece of cake. Don't remember 5 years ago, but today it took several hours to feel relatively back to normal.

My brother is still in the ICU. I messaged him this afternoon and he said he is "making slow progress" but they are breathing for him till he recovers - meaning bipap or high flow O2. Really worried and his wife is pretty worn out. No need for me to go to Ohio as I would only be in the way.

Recorded the funeral - will watch another time.

DD#2 arrives tomorrow :)

Have a good Tuesday.

Glad the colonoscopy came back clean, Karen. I'm on the 5 year plan too. A friend of mine in her mid-70s was told her next colonoscopy would be her last. She didn't know if that was a good thing or not since they think you are too close to dropping dead to make it worth your while!!!

Wonderland, I do take an Advil when I go to bed, but don't want to mask any discomfort during the day to keep myself from overdoing things (rest is the only 'cure). It may be the last summery temperature day of the season here. Since we can, DH, Bruno & I are taking off for a hike at a State Park.....or maybe a county park. I should be back in time for Zumba tonight.

Ruth: I had weird back spasms the other night and had to get up from bed to take Advil. Thankfully it worked and I was able to sleep. And luckily didn't need any the next day.

Karen: Hope your brother is starting to feel better.

It was a lovely day for a hike. I couldn't pick just one picture to share so made a collage.

Ruth - gorgeous scenery. The aspens are starting to turn gold, seems early for me. I still miss the changing deciduous trees from the midwest and east coast.

A little annoyed with the endocrinologist. Through the patient portal she share the results of labs and her recommendations which was all good. So I wrote her back to see if she had shared information with my oncologist. She said she would forward labs and notes, but it felt to me that if I hadn't asked, she would not be sending them. Since she has the opposite view regarding Prolia than my oncologist, I especially want him to have the information. Got the Rx switched to mail order as it is $60 less. It was turning into a big hassle, but I messaged my PCP and she first thing in the morning faxed the Rx to the mail order pharmacy and they will ship it to the PCPs office. Makes so much more sense than for me to have to get it at the pharmacy.

My brother message me this morning that he made great progress yesterday and that the doctors listened to him. Big change from his message Monday afternoon, so feeling a little less worried.

Today was supposed to be the last day of 90s. Cooler the next two days with rain - other than recess at school, happy for the rain.

Sweet dreams.

Cooking is a lot of work! I had told our friend whose wife has ALS that we'd bring over a meal today. Since I knew I wouldn't have time to put things this morning, I cooked all evening and was exhausted by the time I finally was done!! I know why I don't make old-fashioned meals very often anymore!

Here's the Wednesday Walking Women. It was a brisk 42 degrees this morning.

After 2 days of rain and mid 50s, it is warming up again to low 80s and high 70s for the next 10 days.

Work is still crazy busy. Still not seeing all my kiddos on my caseload due to continued high fliers and crises. So far behind in paperwork. But just doing the best I can. Trying not to stress about it. I said to the secretary yesterday that the gal I'm covering for must be way more organized than me and secretary said NO. She said she has never seeing a year like this one and she has been at the school for at least 20 years. I feel bad for the gal coming back from leave - only 5 1/2 weeks - she will be in for a shock!!! Hopefully by then I'll have all the paperwork done.

Usually Friday routing, grocery, cooking and cleaning. Plus enjoying DD#2.

My brother is still in the hospital. Today i his 69th birthday. Need to get an update. Last one was Wednesday. He has now been in the hospital for 2 weeks.

Need to schedule my Covid and Flu vaccine. Will wait till DD leaves and the. holidays are over in case I have a reaction, though no reaction with the first 4.

Have a great Friday and week-end.
