FEELING BETTER THAN EXPECTED:))
Woke up feeling pretty good this morning & managed to stay that way for the rest of the day. No pain so did not have to take any further medication since the one pill after returning home Monday afternoon. Doc Robot’s office did call this morning & has already scheduled me for an appointment on June 21tst at the Stratford Hospital to have the stent removed. Only a 15 minute procedure & I’ll be out the door. But Yeouchers, not looking forward to that one by the sounds of it!! Oh, & he did send me the troublesome Kidney Stone today via UPS:))
ME & MY KIDNEY STONE:)) >>>
Nice to be out on the morning trail with Kelly & the Pheebs. No sign of the new Goose family since the first day they were all on the pond last week. They just vanished. Geese have a habit of moving the young family soon after they are hatched & we suspect they all trooped off through the pine forest to a larger pond about a quarter mile east of us. It's a popular place for Geese & in previous years we have seen Goose families making that journey.
PHEEBS MEETS NEW PAL DEXTER ON THE TRAIL THIS MORNING & THE TWO OF THEM HAD A BLAST
Had a few things on my agenda this morning & yep, another medical appointment was third on my list. But first it was off to Clinton to get a pair of clip-on sunglasses for my glasses. My big Walmart sun shades didn't fit my new glasses very well & kept falling down on my nose. From Clinton I drove to Walmart in Goderich to fill a prescription for Tylenol 3's which I actually didn't need but figured they are good to have on hand for emergencies. Besides, they were free.
AND ANOTHER NEW PAL ON THE TRAIL…THIS IS KOAH & KOAH IS PART WOLF…THEY WERE BOTH PRETTY EXHAUSTED FROM PLAYING
My third stop had me sitting in the Goderich Medical Clinic for 40 minutes waiting for my turn to lose some more blood. This was my first blood work check-up to see how the newly prescribed cholesterol drug, Crestor is affecting my liver. So far, no side effects from Crestor. Next blood check-up will be in 6 weeks.
IT’S THAT MESSY PINE POLLEN TIME OF YEAR AGAIN
Kelly found a Government 1-800 number for Passport Canada this morning & we were able to find out my new Passport is destined to arrive here the week of June 11. That clears up another worry:))
THIS IS WHERE OUR PINE FOREST TRAIL SPLITS & WE BEGIN OUR LOOP
I liked Mike's post over at Phannie & Mae this morning entitled, IT'S OFFICIAL: I'M A GEEZER. If you don't think you are a Geezer yet, you had better check out Mike's post. And, like I said in my comment to Mike....."I was able to identify with every Geezerism he felt, right from start to finish. How in the heck did all this Geezeritus stuff happen to us guys anyway. Sneaked right up it did"!!
GROANER'S CORNER:(( A teacher was having trouble teaching arithmetic to one little boy. So she said, "If you reached in your right pocket and found a nickel, and you reached in your left pocket and found another one, what would you have?"
The little boy answered, "Somebody else's pants."

Pheebs lab friend looks so much like my old girls it made me sad! Glad you are feeling so good!ReplyDelete
Whew, glad to see the Groaners Corner has returned and it was worth the wait. I laughed out loud.ReplyDelete
I know you will be relieved to get all repaired so that you Winter travels will be trouble free and no worries.
Remember it will take a while for the stuff to heal on the inside.... But you seem to be a trouper in the pain and and feeling good department.....ReplyDelete
Best wishes for any further appointments and procedures.... Rod
Soooo happy you feel great..I felt like shi-....passing that gravel was NOT fun because of the stent...Maybe a difference in men and women's plumbing??ReplyDelete
Looks like Pheebs run the stuffin' out of Koah:) Glad you are doing so well. With a stone that size, I would think you might want to just turn over and stay in bed awhile...haha.ReplyDelete
Glad to hear you r doing exceptionally well So happy for the whole familyReplyDelete
Happy to see you are back, hope it all went well. We left Canada today and only declared fond memories of a happy vacation. The customs guy acted skeptical, but said we needed to sign our passports for them to be valid, but do it at your leisure and have a great day!ReplyDelete
Glad to hear that you are doing so well! YOWZERS on the size of that stone! LOL! Thanks for the chuckle!ReplyDelete
Gosh Al...looking at that gigantic "kidney stone" in your photo...that'sReplyDelete
a lot of "extra" to carry around...no wonder your knees & legs were acting up!!!!!! Glad you are feeling as well as you are.
glad you are feeling better today..Pheebes got to make some new friends!!..how great is that..ReplyDelete
now as for Mike's post..it was a good one that is for sure!!!
Wow Al, with a stone that size I'm surprised the plumbing worked at all.......... Glad the pain level is low to none but don't over do it though.. I had the same question... Where did Pheeb's new friend come from?ReplyDelete
Now if you could just get them stones to be diamonds or gold, you'd be doing good! Glad you're better.ReplyDelete
More like overnight express on the kidney stone. ;) Glad you're recovering so well.ReplyDelete
That sunset shot is Amazing. Love the colored light reflecting on the water.
"Feeling better than expected" is always a good thing, especially after losing a huge rock from your innards.ReplyDelete
Keep pluggin' away, you'll get it all sorted out in due time.
Glad to see you recovered so quick...Nice going.....ReplyDelete
Hey, I like the new header photo too!!

Glad to see you are out and about Al!ReplyDelete
So glad that your medical issues are getting all cleared up!! Loved your pictures and especially enjoyed groaners corner today!!ReplyDelete
Holy crap...if in fact that huge stone came out of your kidney, it's no wonder the doc in Arizona said you were a special case! ;-)ReplyDelete
