    Hi Randy!
    You've had a rough time. That's the sort of reasons I got rid of facebook, and never went on twitter at all. Hope you got that all straightened out okay!!!

    How are you managing all by yourself, with Linda recovering at her Mom's? It must be hard on both of you being apart like that. I sure hope that she is back to "normal" quickly!!!

    Things haven't been so great here either -We lost both Phoenix and Arwen within 9 weeks of each other in 2017. Then last year, just about the tie Brinx was thinking that being an "only" might be okay, we got him two 8 week old puppies for his 10th birthday. I think he still wishes they had never "darkened "his door!!!

    The family we doctor we had back then was seriously over medicating me, and January last year was the last time I went to see him. When I tried to tell him what was going on, he just looked at the file and said that I was " old, morbidly obese and diabetic, so what did I want him to do?" I never went back.

    Last fall, Meaganne found a new clinic opening up near us that was taking patients, and we got so, so lucky. The doctor we have there is amazing!!! She's young, friendly, and so caring about each of us! The first thing she did was get rid of 9 of the medications the other guy had me taking!!! Things are improving slowly, and it left me with a bunch of health problems - congestive heart failure , chronic kidney disease , some issues with my lungs (not COPD though), and some balance problems too. Now I have to use either a cane or a walker when I go out BUT I am still here!!! I think if we'd stayed with the other doctor I might not be alive by now.

    I am so glad to know that you are doing okay, and will keep you guys in my thoughts and prayers as always. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
