Not as hot yesterday, so that was pleasant. And no storms! Going to mow the lawn today.

HUGS and have a super Saturday.

Since Jason can't join us Charlie brown and Snoopy did . they made us laugh hope they help you have a good laugh with all the stress you and Jason are going though. I like the idea of the Mayo clinic . continued prayers .
Racey says thanks for the nice after party .

Life is like dancing Ė itís not about getting from one place to another. Itís about enjoying each step.

Friday: Well, yesterday was not a great day, but I think we have a plan in place. Just feel that Mayo Clinic would be the very best place to get good answers. Just been in too many situations where I have run into people from all over who are there for re-doís because their surgeries didnít go right. So, want things to be right the first time.

Made calls and have the process in place.

TGIF

Dee: Hope you have a good weekend.

Linda: Yes, it is scary having spinal surgery, but . . . I have faith in the Drs. @ Mayo, so I know heís in good hands.

HUGS to you facing spinal problems. It is daunting. To be sure.

More calm weather here today, enjoying that. Less hot. Enjoying that, too.

Fran: Yes, we are having a dance party tonight (Miss Lilly and I). She is more interested in the bananas!

HUGS

Thursday: More comfortable yesterday, but still humid. Storms expected today. We shall see.

Jas has his Dr. appt. today. Did see the MRI report on-line. 2 major things going on, but both, I believe are amenable to his PT and aquatherapy. So thatís where weíre at. Waiting to see what the Dr. says.

Enjoy Friday JR. Stay hydrated!

HUGS

Update: This is not a happy situation. **SIGH** The conclusion of the visit w/the neurologist is to see a neurosurgeon. The stenosis, (narrowing of the spinal canal) is moderate and is not going to get better (knew that). There is a bone spur impinging on the nerve (has to be removed). Have to set up a neurosurgery consult.

That's where the really bad begins. #1. If he has to have surgery, I can't be with him. #2. There are still protesters downtown, which is where the neurosurgeon apparently does surgery.

Just need lots of prayers while we work thru this. My first instinct is to head to Mayo, but even that travel option is really risky. **SIGH** Just feel trapped, sad, helpless and overwhelmed. Need prayers.

Yes! I was thinking the same thing! I'm thankful for ac. I can imagine sitting around the house in heat and humidity after this surgery.

I sent Ern to my favorite farmstand. I sauteed a couple of summer squash and tomatoes for our dinner. Still not much available because it is early in the season but everything that came home is beautiful.

He brought home fresh dill. I will use some for a yogurt dill salad dressing. But it is a big bunch of fragrant dill. Any ideas what I can do with it?

Tuesday: Hot and steamy weather continues. Thank goodness for a/c! Jason did well @ PT and aquatherapy yesterday. Has more exercises to do, and hoping they help. No results from the MRI yet. BUT hopefully by Wednesday.

HUGS and have a terrific Tuesday.

Fran: Hot 'n' humid here. Couple of storms went through. Some torrential rain. But everything is all right.

Just not watching news, either.

Should have the MRI results Thursday. Seems like a long time right now, but itíll be here.

Yes Racey and had a peaceful night no fire works we had a nice walk this we got our 2 miles in all at once. house duties checked off . then i pushed my self out the door and since i forgot bags to pick up after Racey. and a gift card at Trader Joe's for a birthday gift got hungry yesterday it also helps me to feel some what normal what ever that going to be. Talked to Tom last night he is getting discouraged not much out there right now and says he is tired of hearing the media TELLING us we are in this together sicne they are working as millions are not . my poor soap box wants a break and no news watching is becoming more popular every day and watching Christmas but they make wonder if we can travel come Dec.
Gail way to go getting out walking and enjoying the fresh air. and getting your steps in for the challenge.
Barb hope you will soon have the MIR results soon. Glad that the PT is helping.

Fran, the fun you and Tom think of! Awesome emoticon decorations.

Other than the bangs of illegal fireworks last night, you wouldn't know it was a holiday if you were around here. Much more fireworks than usual. If this was a regular year, we would have watched our town display on the 3rd and visited one of the surrounding towns on the 4th. I miss the fireworks and we always run into friends from Adam's school and youth sports who we don't see much anymore.

It's definitely summer! Bright and hot out there! emoticon

Last night was pretty peaceful, surprisingly. Thankfully.

Hope itís a blessed Sunday.

Fran: Watched the Captiol Fourth on PBS. Nice. Otherwise, neighbors were setting off fireworks from 8 pm till 1 am. Miss Lilly was NOT happy. Had her in her baby blanket and cuddled w/me. She eventually settled down.

Lovely dťcor!

I hear fireworks. But they are illegal to own in this state. The municipal displays have all been cancelled or postponed until September. No parades. No pancake breakfast in the Park. No bandstand concerts. Not much of a holiday this year!

My new dentist office had a cancellation and I was able to get a teeth cleaning yesterday. Hooray! Clean teeth and a conversation with nice people! They were very thorough ... and very pleasant. I can relax now. We are all set with the new insurance and the new providers.

We decided to get a favorite treat from the pancake house from curbside pick-up. Ern had to go alone. I thought a short ride outside would be good for me. I tried. But no good. I can't tolerate the bumps in the road even when clutching a pillow. This needs more time.

A neighbor went to Wal Mart and they refused to let the person in the store they even offered her a mask she left upset. the neighbor had hers in her pocket.
Racey and I enjoyed three walks today. since it was not raining. and it was a nice cool day . Ready for dancing tomorrow.

I wonder if I can get my son to take his abandoned Lego collection to his new home! I would love to see a lot of his left-behind treasures bundled up for a trip south. He was always a "saver" and has all sorts of toys and stuff in his room and the basement.

I made appointments for July 30 to get teeth cleaning for the two of us. People over 65 couldn't be seen until July 1.

It was strange being at the Boston health center. Closed coffee shop. Mostly empty and dark specialty areas. Three people limit to an elevator. Social distance to get to the receptionist in the waiting room. My temperature was taken at the building entry, the department entrance, and in the room where I saw the doc.

More waiting. Doc has a question about the report. So more waiting.

I got the okay to start walking again! Now the hard part of getting myself out the door!

Wednesday: Early MRI. May grab lunch and carry out.

Warm and humid! Indoor kinda day.

Hugs and have a wonderful Wednesday.

Gail: Wow! Thanks for setting up the July challenge.

Fran: Wow! We are on the opposite end of the spectrum w/your weather. We are hot and steamy.

Those Lego creations are gorgeous.

Our 4th of July celebrations are cancelled. Itís for the best. Our #ís are going up. And itís mostly those in their 20ís. **SIGH** Sad.

Stay safe, ladies.

Went to Boston to see another doc about the next steps in this process. The incision is healing well. The docs are frustrated because my results are still "in process" due to covid staffing slowing things down.

Definitely NOT ready for a long trip soon.

Tuesday: Warm day yesterday. The afternoon brought storms. Cooled things off a little.

Jas had his PT and it was a good session. He made progress. Thatís encouraging.

Weíll see what the weather is like today. Would like to get some outside work done.

HUGS and have a terrific Tuesday.

Gail: Yes, 4 hrs. total travel right now would probably be a bit much.

Congratulations to Adam!

My cousin invited us to their home for the 4th. It's her birthday. Honestly, don't think I could be pleasant after sitting in the car for over 2 hours each way! I think it's a little too much for now even though it's just sitting.

My son is officially a home owner! He signed the papers and picked up the keys.

Yeah, I'm with you and feel that way too. I lost a couple of weeks there!

I went to Legoland when my sister was living in California. Adam was still in a stroller. That place is awesome!

a nice day not to hot took a break from the yard work we did all week just needed a day off. just did thing around the house. The governor visited here on Thursday and told us due the spike we could move to the next phase and said it wold be longer then 2 weeks. so the natives restless and very unhappy since so many people are just heading to Idaho to gather and shop. I have no plans to head to Idaho for shopping.
Gail glad you at doing better sounds like a busy day hope you are not to tired.
Barb glad things are improving for Jason.
Not a newsy day but they say that is a good thing.

Gail: Well, he started out on Tylenol and lyrica for the nerve pain (akin to shingles pain). But it wasn't cutting it. The prednisone pack has helped a lot. He's almost done w/that.

It's hard when you don't know. I'm surprised they are eager to give him meds.

They gave me heavy duty medication at the hospital but I came home with a suggestion for tylenol and motrin. emoticon

Yup, proud of me! But it had to be done. I get depressed when Adam's bed is made when he's not home. And I wanted fresh sheets. I guess I got caught up in the "regular routine" once I got started. I'm not doing any heavy lifting. The floors can wait until another day (another week!).

Gail: No, Jas really has no idea what happened to cause this. He gets an MRI on Wednesday and that may give some clues (is it a bone spur? Is it a herniated disc? Is it stenosis?) Not sure.

YOU CHANGED THE SHEETS AND DID LAUNDRY! Wow. Fantastic. AND cleaned the bathrooms and bedrooms. Good for you. I know you are, but just take good care of yourself.

Barb, does Jason know how he injured himself? Or in other words, how to prevent it from happening again?

I decided to change the sheets and get some laundry done. And I cleaned the bathrooms and bedrooms. I feel better when I get things done that need to get done but everything takes so much more energy. I can't believe it has been a week since my surgery. It feels so much longer than a week ago Friday ... and other times it feels like yesterday!

Saturday: Out to breakfast and it was wonderful.

Had storms last night. But not too bad! Sassy winds and a torrential downpour then . . . stopped.

Jas is feeling better bit by bit. So glad that the meds are working. HEíS wanting the recovery to happen quicker, but thatís just not how it works. **SIGH**

HUGS and enjoy Saturday.

We had the windows washed throughout the whole house this morning. I scheduled this a couple of months ago and waited until the pollen decreased. I should have them come more often, it's been years. Clean and shiny! You would think I helped by how tired I am!
