More Tests


Want to welcome my newest follower, trailercamper.  I will get caught up on his site as soon as I can.  It looks very interesting.  Check it out!!

Not much going on here.  I have been going in every Monday for a blood test, and so far my Coumadin dosage is correct.  Not so lucky with my heart meds.  My Doctor raised my dosage from 80mg to 120mgs, twice a day.  I sure hope this works.  I have to go back in Friday for yet another EKG, and then into the hospital for a Carotid Duplex scan.  Sometimes I am seeing the Doctor twice a week, but I know he is only trying to help me. :)

A big congrats goes out to my nephew, Tony in California.  He has just graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Digital entertainment and game design.  He and his wife, Dr. Erin Marchand, and their daughter, Leah, and unborn child will be headed for either Japan or England for her internship through the service.  We are all praying for England… :)


Tony, Erin and Leah.

We have been walking again, and here in Tell City they have a fitness walk that we have been taking.  It is a mile long and at the end is the Dog Park, so if Rusty isn’t already worn out, we can turn him loose in the Park and let him romp to his hearts content…  I took a couple of pictures to share with you.


The honey suckle is in full bloom and so are the wild roses.  It all smelled so good on our walk.


The trail is built along Windy Creek, but it has had to be dredged so much that it really isn’t pretty anymore.  It used to create a lot of flooding in different neighborhoods in town, that’s why all the dredging took place.  The dog park is bottom left.

A man is coming today to hook Donnie’s TV up to a digital box, so he can receive all the stations that I am getting.  He is also going to setup my router for me.  We tried, but I don’t think that Comcast is recognizing it or something.

We also have a man looking at the RV today to see if he thinks we can get laminate flooring in here, or if we will need to go with vinyl.  I really don’t care which, I just want something easier to take care of.  Wish us luck.

It is so good to see that Gypsy is back on the road, and I sure hope Judy is doing better by today.  Both of these girls are so brave to do all that they do alone.  I am not sure I would be that strong. 

You all take care and I will catch you later….. :)

Hang in there with the tests. They will get it sorted out. Rusty looks like he is enjoying the area.

Hmmm... BS in Digital entertainment and game design... something my 15-year old son would love to pursue!

One of these days your heart medication will be regulated just the way it needs to be. Hang in there. The fitness walk sounds nice!

Honeysuckle and wild roses...ummmm, nice! That would make for a lovely walk. Congrats to your nephew and yes, let's hope for England. Hope you continue to make progress on getting your meds regulated.

Congrats to your nephew....meds? What would we do without them? I sometimes wonder why it takes so much adjusting to get it right...

Al and Karen said...

Keep a stiff upper lip, they will get the doasages worked out. After Al's surgery for the afib, he was on SO much meds, but has been gradually taken off most of them. getting better and healthier all the time, to enjoy this life!

Those fitness trails are a great way to get some good over all exercise. Looks like it is in a nice park. Glad that Rusty could have a place where he could get a nice run.

Good luck at the doctor's, hope everything goes well.
