The Waiting Game

High Velocity Fun Flowers

Looks like we are back on the waiting game for my husband's robotic surgery. October 24th is the earliest we can get in. So far he is doing all right.He has quit bleeding so that is wonderful news and he can begin to get his blood count back up. 

 A friend gave us a Vitamix blender and I have been having fun making all kinds of healthy protein filled smoothies. I have watched several videos and learned a lot. He needs to eat a lot of spinach and he was getting so tired of it! But with the Vitamix I can make 3# of spinach and a bit of water, put it in ice cube trays and throw it into the smoothie. So he gets a lot more spinach that way and you don't have to worry about it going bad in the refrigerator. We still have to get his blood count up but he is doing more and really wanting to to get back into his work routine. The sad part is he missed out on most of the summer weather. It is cloudy and rainy now and supposed to be a pretty wet winter. Not fun!

The technical people have apparently found the problem of some of the themes not working on Android phones and tablets. "It looks like this has been fixed and is set to go out to users on October 22. (If users are using a pre-release channel, this should be fixed for them on Beta68.2b1, Firefox Nightly 71.0a1, and Nightly 70.0a1)." So you guys can do a little waiting along with me and my husband!

Another Windows 10 update this morning, but I happened to find something in this one, I did not know and think I will love it. I am a silly old lady and just love emoji's. And have wondered how to put them in some things...Well you can right click the taskbar and  up pops a number of things you can do. I clicked on Show touch keyboard button and there it is.

I think I am so smart to check that out! I am sorry but I am such a "geek".

Thanks to all of you that are praying for my dear, sweet husband. Without him I don't think I could live. We have been together for 63 1/2 years and that is a very long time. Mostly all good, too. We have struggled with not having enough money most of our lives but most people do that. We have always been very self reliant and done most everything that needed doing ourselves and not called professional in (they cost $$). The night before his first scheduled surgery I turned the ceiling fan on and it wouldn't come on, so I got the step stool and got up to change the up/down of the fan and smoke started coming out of it! So we got everything shut down but couldn't get to trying to fix it until much later. As we figured it was old and broken, just like us! So we had to order a new one and instead of us working as a team and getting the old one down and the new on put together and installed, our son had to do it for us. We know he doesn't mind doing it but it is really hard for my husband to have someone else do something for us. When our son's and one grandson came to start cutting and splitting our winter wood (our trees that blew down last winter), he had tears in his eyes. I felt so badly for him...but I guess at 84 he is going to have to ask for help once in awhile. Although we are hoping after his surgery, healing and getting stronger he can get back to doing most of the things he wants to do.

Well, it is time for me to start thinking about what healthy foods I can fix for dinner. 

Thanks for reading my silly little blog and have a good week end.

SURGERY DIDN"T HAPPEN!

 Mountain Cabin Collage 3


I am so disappointed...first thing Friday morning the hospital called and wanted us there an hour early so we hurried around and got there. They took him up to Pre-op and wouldn't let me go with him so they got him all prepped and ready...then left him alone in the room so he could start worrying and get stressed out. So he started having chest pains so that stopped everything in the tracks.....No surgery until he was checked out in Cardiology. He spent the night being monitored all night and tests. Saturday morning they did a stress test and he passed with flying colors so now...we are back to square 1 on a wait for a surgery date. We waited 6 weeks for this one. Let us hope it won't be another 6 weeks. The only good thing is that his blood count is coming up every day. It was 10.3 on Tues. and by Fri. it was 11.7. so that is good and he is not bleeding anymore so we sit and wait.

Thanks for all your kind thoughts and prayers.

Till next time!
