Well I can start off with one good thought which sounds pretty 'right' to me. I was able to contact the cabinetmaker about our kitche and he said it should be installed either next Wednesday or Thursday so hopefully it will be done just in time for Easter. I then have to contact the man to do the vinyl and let him know he can measure up and show me some patterns. We've decided where the carpet has to be replaced in the L-shaped hallway that we will continue the vinyl in there as well. Will also ask him about steam cleaning the living room carpet as well. Would prefer to replace it with vinyl but so much furniture to move and perhaps a little out of our price range. Need to ask questions when I see him.
Another 'right'.....my daughter rang me on Sunday and we had a nice long chat. Was delighted to know she has lost another 4 kilo although she says she has plateaued out again. She has done so well having now lost well over 25 kilo or even more. I had hoped she may blog again and blow me down, she must have read my mind, as I find there was a post from her yesterday. So glad she did that as I know many of you would like to know how she is.
More that in my eyes is good too. The man who does such a wonderful job in our garden came yesterday and it is mostly looking spic and span again. Ron had his own health problems last year but he tells me all is going well with him now which is good to hear. I've asked him if can 'do' our garden on a regular basis every two months. He said he can and that has taken a big load off my mind. It will never look this good, certainly not as green with our lack of rain, but we can keep working at it and with Ron's help maybe we'll get there one day. Perhaps hopes and dreams are all we have as we age and have to rely so much on others.
Some not so good news about our x-rays. Nothing huge but Phil had to have a CT scan of his chest on Tuesday and I have to have another x-ray in two weeks time. Doctor not sure about Phil's problem and Phil has an appointment to see him on Friday afternoon when hopefully all will be revealed. Doctor seems to think my 'opacity' may be an infection of some kind and a second x-ray will perhaps show whatever it is has disappeared. All rather vague right now and one can but hope that all will be well.
We both had blood tests yesterday as we see our endocrinologist next Wednesday so are both hoping our blood glucose is still reasonably well under control. I have started using Stemitel and Ventolin and one or both of them contain steroids which are not friendly when it comes to BG. If ever you have an injection into a joint you just don't bother testing your BG for at least 3-4 days 'cos you know the result will be bad. My morning BG tests were dreadful this week and as my eating habits haven't changed I can't put a finger on why that has happened except for the Ventolin. I guess the blood tests will tell the story when we get them next week.
We must not complain as we two oldies have so far been granted 12 and 14 years above our three score years and ten and it is out intent to continue battling along as best we can. So there!!!!!
