How Safe Are Our Medicines?

August 17, 2018

Good morning.  My goodness, how gorgeous it is outside my door.  According to the forecast, it will stay like this all day.  Woo Hoo!  This is good because I have to go out.  My doctor appointment for tomorrow has been re-scheduled to early this afternoon. 

In a way this is good because I really do need to discuss my meds with the doctor.  On the information sheet for one of my nebulizer meds it says "People with asthma, who take long-acting beta-adrenergic agonist (LABA) medicines, such as BROVANA, have an increased risk of death from asthma problems."  Another sentence says "It is not known if BROVANA is safe and effective in people with asthma."  Hmmm, considering that the medicine does not seem to help an awful lot, I wonder if I should be taking it at all?

I also need to discuss whether or not my new (from the Oxygen company) portable concentrator is FAA approved.  I can't find it listed anywhere on the list of FAA approved machines.  I called the oxygen company and they said that there is a manufacturer label on the machine that says that it is FAA approved.  Well, that does help.  (I hope)  I also asked the company if they carried the newer, much lighter machine and they said no because it was too new. 

This past Christmas I received a Maxine calendar, and I've been meaning to post the monthly pictures from it.  Alas, I haven't gotten around to doing that yet, so today I'll start with the August image.  I love Maxine.  She somehow always says it like it is!

In an earlier post I had mention that Deanne's cat "Tinkerbell" hasn't been doing so well lately.  They've been watching her carefully, but Tinkerbell isn't ready to leave yet.  Here's a photo that Deanne sent to me of Sassy and Tinkerbell napping together on the sofa.  They look so peaceful, don't they?

Last night I decided to try making one of the air freshener doll dresses.  The dress is almost finished now.  I just have to put the closures on it and some trim.  It's a mint green color and my goodness, it is really cute.  When I'm done with it, I'll take a photo to share. 

My little guy wasn't in the mood yesterday to eat his chicken and rice.  He even turned down some of my pizza last night.  This morning, however, he was rather hungry and ate half of the doggie food that I gave him for breakfast.  I just wish I could figure out what foods he would eat. 

Today I have another quick page for you.  I hope you like fantasy.

The morning is slipping by and I have things to do before I leave for my appointment.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.
