Wowsers, the year is half over! And, I know exactly how the time has flown for us. We both say goodbye and good riddance to last month. There was a dizzying schedule of doctor appointments, and Mr. Jim required five days hospitalization in the middle of it all. June 2014, you are so OUT of here!
We hope that this month will go smoother now that a chemo break is underway. There will still be some topsy-turvy stuff going on though. I have medical issues that have not been resolved, and they will be pursued further this month.
I’ve been having problems with my right eye (the one without the huge floaters from the retinal tear), and I have seen – and stumped – a total of four eye doctors so far. I will head to a specialist in Nashville next week to possibly discover a diagnosis and proposed fix. If there is a strike out with that guy, then I am in a pickle.
Also, my internist has confirmed that I have developed a hernia. So I have an appointment this week with a surgeon to determine what would be involved for surgical repair. It’s going to be really challenging in our household if I am on medical restrictions for any appreciable length of time. Oh, the fun continues here…
Mr. Jim’s birthday is in a few short days. He’ll be logging in the big number 70. Three cheers for that accomplishment! We’ll have a low-key 4th of July celebration this weekend. Since we have a small residential lot, the lighting of a few sparklers is about as wild as it’s going to get here. But we will manage to create some photography-related mischief later on this month. I will continue to keep mum about what it is afoot for the time being. But you can be looking forward to a post about us creating some senior-style havoc with the assistance of photographic equipment. Sounds ominous, huh?!
My self-imposed blogging slowdown will continue throughout the summer months so that I can spend quality time with Mr. Jim and tend to tasks around the cottage. Mr. Jim is participating a lot more in household duties than he did just a few weeks ago, so that is a great help and reducing my workload. I will try to visit your blogs when time permits. Please continue to consider yourself lucky if I comment on your posts. Most of my visits are quick and via my trusty iPad.
Thank you so much for your continued support, prayers, and good will!
