Good morning. Sorry I haven't been posting regularly, but I've been under the weather quite a bit. Aside from not breathing very well without the oxygen, I seem to have caught a really nasty cold I feel really bad for my friend Beth. This was supposed to be a fun vacation for her, and I'm not very much fun lately. Thank goodness, though, Beth has been a god send. She has been doting on Pogo and me all week. We'd have been lost without her.
Yesterday morning I called my doctor to see if he could arrange for me to have oxygen going home on Saturday. He did not call me back, so I called him again in the afternoon. I did not get a call back this time either. So what else is new? I guess it's true that we old folks are throw aways. Well, at least with my doctor. I think it's time I started shopping for a new doctor.
I'll have to have a long chat with this doctor when I get home. I don't know if I can make changes at this time of the year. I'll have to check with my insurance company. Health care certainly isn't like it used to be. Today I'm trying to get along as best I can without having to use the oxygen so much, at least during the day. Hopefully, by doing this, I'll be able to make the trip home (an all day affair) okay.
On a brighter note, let me share some pretty photos that daughter Audrey took last week of some of the fireworks. Red seems to be a favorite color here.
Here's one that I took a few nights ago, along with another photo of my handsome Pogo.
My little Pogo is having himself a grand time. He loves to lay in the sun, and then he runs around on the cool marble tile floor indoors. I'm glad it's warm and sunny here for him because when we get home it will be cold and snowy. Spring will only be a week away though, so there is hope that things will warm up again soon at home.
Here's an update on my wonderful doctor -- I've called his office twice today, and each time I' got a steady busy signal. I guess he's off today.
Well, those are my woes for the day. "He" says tomorrow will be better. So I'll try to be back here tomorrow. Till then, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
