    Doing well despite a smashed sleep schedule.  Got asked to go overseas on short notice and am still here...and still not on schedule.

    I feel compelled to make the admission that I not only don't know what I'm doing. I'm not real sure how I'm doing either.

    Yup, don't ask loaded questions like that around here because they'll tell you.
    :D
    Hey Shannon, glad you're improving. Even if it is slowly. 👍
    Having an infection is bad. Having an infection along with Type 1 diabetes is a struggle. 😖
    Anyway, glad you're improving.
    Over here it's 100 and humid. That stick to the furniture type hot. Lots of indoors time so lots of online time. But I have a multitude of projects to keep me busy and that's good.
    Hope you feel much better soon. Let us know.

    Washing machine took a crap and the wife’s brakes started grinding. The fact that we damn near need to build an ark doesn’t help matters either. Oh, up to my eyeballs in work too.

    Actually I've been doing really good, sorting out my 6.5 06 the last two weekends and my rugby team slipped into the playoffs.
    Sorry for others that have had a bad ride lately

    And, I hate it when trout season is slipping away and not much line has been dampened.

    Glad you're a little better. Weather here sucks, as we have had rain almost every day since I returned from Johnson City on June 4th. So much to my chagrin, I am unable to go out riding the motorcycle. The one positive is I found out my lawn irrigation system was leaking at the zone distribution manifold and it has taken me over a week to pull out the Crepe Myrtle tree that roots from it were pushing on the water pipes in the system. I had to shut the whole system down for this repair. If it weren't for the rain my lawn would be completely dried up in the heat. Also had to unearth the manifold which was a big job in itself. At least I have relatively good health, so for all of you not feeling well, I hope you get better soon.

    I just spent four days in S. California, some in-laws will be here on Monday,  there's something wrong with my snow plow truck, and this is the current weather condition, the day before summer. 


    Shannon - glad you are doing better.

    Got to get my gall bladder removed Tuesday.  Other than that, I'm doing fine.

    Hope you are all feeling better soon.

    Glad you're feeling a bit better, Shannon. I can sympathize with your catheter woes. I underwent bladder surgery about a month and a half ago, and wore an "oversized" catheter for 5 days. I still ain't right. :s

    While the doc had his knives out, he sliced off a chunk of my prostate and the biopsy indicated early stage prostate cancer. I go back in on July first for a consult. However it goes, I'm really dreading the catheter again.

    Let's see.....since last August........ VFib resulting in cardiac arrest, (damn lucky to have lived thru that), ICD implant, Vascular surgery left leg, benign tumor removal from the bladder, diagnosis of prostate cancer.

    For a guy that made it 59 years and 10 months with nothing more serious than a sinus infection, it's been a wild year.

    Mike - I watched my father die of prostate cancer, because back in the day they took it out, but didn't follow up with targeted radiation or chemo. 20 years later, it came back and killed him. Moral of this story: Attack it aggressively and relentlessly! I know what my plan will be if/when I'm diagnosed with it.

    Wow, Mike!  That's crazy.  I had no idea that pile of misery came your way.  Prayers coming your way, my friend.

    Thanks, Luis....

    On the upside, I've lost 15 pounds. 

    On the downside......that was 10%+ of my body weight. ;)

    Zorba,

    My Dad had his prostrate removed on his 73rd birthday. 1 day after his 74th, he dropped dead of cardiac arrest.

    I'm beginning to believe that once Mother Nature discerns you are no longer a factor in the gene pool, the obstacles start coming at you hard and fast.

    After watching my father die of prostate cancer, I *WANT* to die from a cardiac arrest! I do *NOT* want to go like he did, that's for sure.
    But I hear you, you're gonna go one way or another!

    Paul.....

    You damned nurses.......you're all the same........

    The last nurse I saw told me, "Just because you thought you were healthy for 60 years
    doesn't mean you were".  She then hit me with the gas, and I didn't have time to respond.

    I guess they don't teach bedside manner nowadays, unless it's in the most clinical sense.

    LOL!

    Zorb,

    After I was out of the woods, I told my cardiologist "Thank you for saving my life, and putting this whiz-bang miracle thing in my chest. I do appreciate it. I really do. OTOH, you've likely condemned me to a painful death in the hopefully distant future".

    I couldn't tell if the look he gave me was tired or sad, but being a doctor has to suck most days, I'm thinking.

    Mike

    ****, Mike.  I had not idea your health was in such a state.  You should have said something.

    Let me know if there's anything I can do.

    It's okay, Jerry. I survived the big one last August. These others are just bumps in the road. I'm just wishing there was a little more distance between bumps, so I could catch my breath.  ;)

    BTW, Jerry,

    Those venison steaks you gave us last October are the best we've ever had. I keep telling Machell we need to save a few for special occasions. Then I get to thinking...."What the hell....every time we eat one it's a special occasion". 

    Once again, many thanks.
