Is anyone else starting radiation in October? I was supposed to start today but it took them so long to do the x-rays and more markings that they mercifully postponed the treatment until tomorrow--which is October. I will be having 30 treatments over six weeks.

mocame, Sometimes purging stuff is such a relief. I put several lots of jewelry on last week, just to get it out of here.

I went to the PCP who changed my thyroid medication and did a referral to the Cardiovascular surgeon that did ablation on some of my veins when I was 62. Glad that is over.

Had a wonderful day at Zion national park. I'm so tired as I'm doing most all the driving but I'm having a great time.

petite1: I'm seeing something about a hurricane near Tampa. Any updates.

Kamboka, It is predicted to become a storm. He hasn't come into the gulf yet. I am doing preps, gas tank top off, new batteries for flashlight, propane tank fill, etc. The worst thing is no power for extended period of time. Hope Hermine the second won't be as bad as the first Hermine in 2016. We were OK, but so many of our friends were flooded. It took some people years to get their homes, particularly condos repaired.

Good morning. Still watching, preparing, and hoping. I will be glad when this week is over.

My parents are supposed to leave early Saturday morning for Florida so we are watching the hurricane closely. Most likely postponing that for a day or two.

I hope you two and your homes stay safe. My thoughts and prayers are with the people living in Florida.

mocame, Waiting a few days is very good idea. At this time they are saying it will come in by Tampa and St. Petersburg. That is about 100 miles south of me, but it is still subject to change. I am not in an evacuation zone, but my friends are. My brother is in Largo, which is in Pinellas county. He will stay at his office, which is in Lakeland. My niece is in Pinellas Park and she will ride it out. My grand nephew is a St. Petersburg cop, so he is working. My grand niece will probably stay home or hang out with her mom. My BFF is in a waterfront home and she is evacuating. My biggest concern is the power going off for an extended period of time.

Kamboka, one of the projected paths has it crossing the state and coming out by you.

petite1: I came home a day early to be here to prep for the hurricane. I'm thinking we might get some winds but nothing like what you guys are expected to get. I heard on the TV that Tampa hasn't had a direct hit in over a 100 years. Let's pray that it stays that way and you don't get one this week. I think we have three days of heavy rain. Today is cloudy. At least if the power goes out, it's not that hot like it would be in August. But again, fingers crossed that where ever it goes, it goes fast and doesn't cause too much damage. Keep us posted.

As I was typing this message, I got an alert on both my phones that scared me. :) It's a 36 hour alert. The next days, I should get used to getting these. Already getting lots of emails from JEA, GEICO, etc. with prep messages. I have lots of expensive glassware and that scares me. I need to sell all this stuff but heading back overseas in a week or so.

Oh, wow. My thoughts and prayers will be with you. I just saw they are expecting it to go across the state and then head up the atlantic coast. My parents' mobile home is in Lorida so that's not great news for them.
