I want to change my template, you know the background on my blog, but I am afraid I will lose everything on my site. I would also like to know how to change the width and so forth. I wish it would cover the whole page instead of being so narrow. Can anyone help me with that?
I can’t go any farther in this post without saying how sorry I was to read of the tragic death of Bruce and Margie. Such a senseless waste of two wonderful people. Margie was one of the first to welcome me aboard when I switched to blog spot, and she always left me very uplifting comments. My heart and prayers go out to Stephanie and their whole family.
Our life has kind of been upside down for the last few days. Thursday I took my brother to the hospital like always and we were surprised to learn that his count was still at 8.3, so he didn’t need any blood. So, Monday I was going after him to take him down again to be checked and when I reached him I found out that his back had started hurting him late in the evening, on Sunday, and then his stomach. He was experiencing terrible cramps all night and then started having dry heaves. I wanted to take him right to the emergency room, but he wouldn’t have that. He wanted to go right to the bone marrow unit where he gets his transfusions. He was in so much pain, I felt sure they would give him something for it right away, but he sat there from 8:30 am till after noon with no relief. I finally got pissed and said if they didn’t give him something soon, I would take him elsewhere. That got the ball rolling and in about an hour he was feeling much better.
They had also not gotten his transfusion started till afternoon, so we were stuck there till after 3:00. The Doctor had ordered that he be admitted at 10:30am and it was 5:30 pm before he was in a room. He was so worn out. I have never had this kind of experience at this hospital and hope we don’t again.
They were going to run all kinds of tests on him, but decided yesterday they wouldn’t. He has already been put through the ringer and there isn’t any test they could think of that he hasn’t already had. So, I took him home and we will go see another Doctor on Thursday. A hectic week so far. They took him off of several pills he has been taking, and they think they could have been causing some of his pains.
I did hear from a Dear friend this week. Her name his Judie and she hails from Alabama. She has been a reader on my blog for a long time. She has been trying to join my site as a follower, but keeps having trouble. This is the second complaint I have had about this. I don’t know what to do about it, so maybe it is just one of those little glitches that happen now and then. Judie is such a sweet person. She is also having a lot of health problems, but never fails to ask about, and pray for my brother. I am adding a picture of her and her Hubby. Thanks for the prayers Judie..
Since I will be tied up at the hospital and then the Doctors office tomorrow, I got every thing done today that I could. I did laundry, went to the grocery, went to Camping World and picked up our fan motor, and this afternoon we went back over to the produce stand for some more of the very good yellow apples. Don is not a big fan of apples, unless they are stewed, but he does like the yellow ones, so I get them when possible. I took a few pictures at the stand and will share them with you.
I just noticed I put 2 watermarks on these pictures, and here I thought I was doing so good with them. Oh well, guess it doesn’t hurt anything.
I have a tenderloin that I am going to stick in the over for supper, and there should be plenty of leftovers for Donnie to eat again tomorrow while I am gone. Going to get off of here and get this posted. I will talk to you again in a few days. Stay safe.
