My mom's pneumonia seems to be mostly gone. Her anxiety levels seem to be down from where they were before her doctor finally adjusted some of her medicines. She's still not "herself" again, but you know what, she probably won't be back to "that place" in her life. She is still dependent on everyone around her to meet her every need, so that leads to some unhappy and impatient moments. But, as one of my daughters told me, "You'll be just like that, Momma." Oh, I hope not, but I may be worse! I just have to take better care of the physical me, so that the mental me can stay healthier.
My strep throat, oh yeah, I didn't tell you about this, is on the mend. Last weekend I was feeling poorly. I truly thought it was just due to stress, etc....., but when I looked in my throat and saw white stuff on one of my tonsils, I realized that maybe I should see a doctor. Of course, I chose the July 4th weekend to be sick when no doctor was in his/her office (not even on Monday), so I had to wait until Tuesday to see a doctor (mine didn't have any openings). I never even gave a thought to it being strep. I haven't had strep throat since I was about 16 or so! I thought I had an inner ear thing and maybe tonsillitis going on. But, I ended up with a shot in each hip and a prescription of Amoxicillin. I am so much better now! I sat around all day Wednesday, except for the hour or so that I had to go to the nursing home because one of the nurses got frustrated (I started to say this another way, but this is a family friendly blog). I told her I had strep, but that didn't matter to her. Anyway, I took care of things with Mother, then I sat around the rest of the day working on some smocking for Lil' E's and her lil' sis's dresses. I have the smocking done, the patterns cut out, the piping and ruffles made. Now all I have to do is sew them together. I can't wait to see how they turn out. I'm really liking this fabric that I posted about a few posts back.
************ALERT*************When I said above that this is a family friendly blog, I really meant it. The other day, a blogger kindly sent me an email to inform me that she had been looking at my profile and clicked on the first blog in my "list of blogs I follow". The blog was a porno site!!!!! Now, how in the world did that get on my list? I checked back through all the blogs that I have CHOSEN to follow and that one wasn't anywhere on it. So, I deleted that list from my profile and changed my password! Has anyone else had anything like this happen to them? That blog is not listed on my sidebar. Where did it come from? Needless to say, I was so relieved that this kind blogger informed me of what she had found. She said she was reluctant to tell me just in case I meant for it to be there, but she had looked through my posts and didn't think it fit my profile! Thank Goodness she did that because I had no idea it was on there!
