This, that and a little other


I am so ready for the weekend so I can sleep late and catch up on some rest.  Back to Back trips to the city to see Doctors is exhausting with having to find a new way to go. We made it, but I didn't go the same way twice. I keep missing a turn when I get at the end of the bridge. I don't think I could drive it every day to work. I think that is a true sign of getting older. 
The cataract on my right eye is not ready to be remove and I am seeing 20/20 with my glasses I got in April so my surgery is postponed, which makes me happy with the way things are with my other half.  He will not remove just one, he wants to do them a month apart.
We went to the liver doctor yesterday. They are going to run some test to see if the blood clot is still there and just what condition the liver is in at the present time. We have doctor appointment on Monday with our primary to talk about the next course of action and what is going on right now.  He fell this evening  in the kitchen. We got him up, but  it was not easy. I will definitely tell it tomorrow.  He is getting to the point where the problems are not fixable, so it means trying to maintain him. How remains to be discussed.  I know I have friends that have problems worse then mine.  We pray for each other that things will improve. 
The two little ones in the previous post were my great niece and nephew. She is ready to ride again. She wants to know where they are going to ride next. If her grandpa could find a well broke horse, he would have one for them. Horses are hard to find as well behaved as Cleo and Fergie. The kids have been really lucky in that respect. 
School is starting this next week. Where did the summer go? We did have a storm last night with the high wind, hail and rain. We had some power outage and trees down, but at least we got down to the 80's. It felt so good when I walked out the door to come home from work.  Enough of this and that You all have a great weekend.

Shirley, I am sorry to hear that your hubby fell again. It is sad, and hard, to watch someone you live with start to fail, isn't it? In the end, sometimes all we can do is be a comfort. Illness is really something that can't be shared..it is a path we walk alone- even when we have support. I am praying for both of you. I certainly hope you get some sleep tonight- xo Diana

I am new to your blog.Well I mean this is the first time I have commented.I read it quite often.I had to respond to you this time. I know just how you feel. My hubby has been my knight in shining armor for a very long time.Now his health is failing and i realize we have to change places. I have to be the caregiver and he's leaning on me.but that's what in sickness and in health means.
I will pray for you and maybe you could do the same for me.

Hi Shirley,
I have been away from blogland for months now and am trying to slowly find my way back. I have no idea what I do with my time, but I am afraid I have so many fires going that I just can't keep up.
I have thought of you many times and wondered how you are doing with your family. I am happy to be writing you now.
I am sorry to hear about your husband and all that both of you are going through. It's not easy getting older, but we have to have a strong faith and take it one day at a time.
You are both together now and helping each other, loveing each other and I am sure grateful for each day together.
We never know what tomorrow may bring, young or old (I should say older, it sounds better....Ha)
but as long as we can still love and support one another, it's all good.
I will include you and yours in my daily prayers Shirley and hope there is good news ahead.
Be well my friend and I will check on you in a couple of days. Until then, have a nice weekend, yes, sleep in and get some much needed rest,
Char

Hi, Shirley, and yes, the summer has flown by. I am so glad you all got some rain and things cooled down a bit. We may get some rain and cooler temps this weekend here in Central Texas. I am keeping my fingers crossed. I am thinking about you, dear friend, and praying for strength for you during this difficult time. God bless and keep you~Vicki
