Good morning. YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME! It is so uplifting to come in here (and in my email) and find such wonderful get well messages. I never had a chance to feel down in the dumps this whole past week. Whatever treat you are allowed, have an extra today for being so awesome. You deserve it!
Yup, I'm home! And my Pogo is home too! The doctor came in yesterday morning and said I needed to have more lab work to see if my kidneys were back on track yet. So, a while later, that very happy lab guy came around to collect more blood. Ever notice how super cheerful these blood collectors are?
I then ordered my lunch from the room service, and cheerfully planned ahead for my supper. I was going to have the pasta and meatballs that I had the night before for supper. It was yum, yum, yummie! But it was not to be. The doctor came back around 4 p.m. and said that my tests all looked good and I would be on my way home around 5 p.m.
Bottom line, after all the tests were done, my heart and my kidneys are doing fine. I do have to make some adjustments to my salt and fluid intake. No problem, I don't use or add salt to my food anyway. I do have to be more aware of the salt that is already included in food. Plus, my heart doctor said that I am allowed one cup of coffee a day. He said that everyone deserves to have their morning cup of java.
Last night I had trouble sleeping so I got up and updated some bookkeeping, and paid some bills. Now I'm just waiting for the mail carrier to put the bills in the mail. Next I did a Find A Word puzzle. By then, my eyes were finally closing.
This morning, on the news, a question was being put out to the public about changing the date of Halloween to the last Saturday in October. Supposedly to make it safer for children to go out and do their "trick or treating." I believe it is really to make the holiday more convenient for a lot of adults.
Folks, Halloween is October 31. Learn to deal with it! It's not just a holiday for kids to go out and collect candy! What's to stop lawmakers to change New Years to a Sunday? When will people stop trying to change our customs to suit the needs of a few?
Today I have a cute tomato image to share. This is to celebrate my little green tomato.
I also have another photo of that cute little squirrel that I showed here yesterday.
I can't forget to post a new photo of my beautiful red Knock Out roses. Such a cheerful sight to come home to.
Well, Jazzy and Krissy and Bob are on their way to New York. Tonight is the big night of the West Point Military Academy Ball. Krissy and Bob are Cole's parents. (Cole is Jazzy's date) Krissy has promised to take photos of Jazzy before she leaves for the ball, and will order some professional photos of both Jazzy and Cole. I can't wait to see these photos!
Now I'm going to rest for a while before putting a load of laundry into the washer. So, till Sunday, Y'all have a fantabulous weekend.
Hugs, Edna B.
