WEDNESDAY HODGEPODGE #428

Thank you Joyce.
To play along click HERE

1. Four words that tell us something about your July. 

Birthdays, testing, stress and loss.  =(sleepless nights)

2. Four of your favorite summer foods?

Kirkland Vanilla Ice Cream, Zucchini Zoodles, Nectarines and Watermelon. 

3. What were you doing at a quarter past four yesterday?

Resting, I had an A-fib attack last Thursday evening so I've been down and out. 

4. fore!, four letter word, four sheets to the wind, ten-four, 24/7, four eyes, these four walls....pick a 'four' phrase and tell us how you relate currently

I guess I could stay "fore!" because we have been watching a lot of golf this summer. Otherwise I'm going with "four letter word" because I think I've used one a lot this month. 

5. Something you own that is four years old? 

Drawing a blank here. I'll say a purse because I'm sure I bought a new one 4 years ago. Of course I've bought several since then too! 

6. Insert your own random thought here. 


But this guy makes me happy, he is my joy!

THIS AND THAT

Monday morning I had to be at the hospital at 7 am for an angiogram so I was up at 4:45 to shower and get ready. The hospital is about an hour away and you can never trust that traffic will be good. 

This was something that was talked about back in February with my cardiologist when I was having the breathing issues and we wanted to make sure that the shortness of breath wasn't my heart. It wasn't fun but we left the hospital to head home around 1 pm. All was well, no blockages found. Yay! 
My brother's attorney is literally a Godsend. He has been so wonderful. I don't know what my sister and I would have done without him. I won't go into some of the details but he has packed up his apartment and will be having someone come to take all the furniture away. He took pictures of everything to see if my sister or I wanted something. 

He also came to us with a request to lower his price when he is doing things that anyone could do. Things that you don't need an attorney for. We don't have plans made yet to go to Milwaukee but I have to say that I can't wait to meet this man and give him a big hug!! 

If you didn't read the post about him passing away last Saturday you can read it HERE.

Also, speaking of my brother there was article written about my brother that you can read HERE. Now this article was going to print having nothing to do with his passing. It was just about his career which is something the gentleman does who wrote it. However the timing was perfect. He contacted me through Facebook and he ended up making it a memorial for Raymond. He did however get the day wrong in his last minute fix but not the date. 
I had my second gel injection in my right knee yesterday. I've had these before and they definitely have helped usually lasting about a year for me. Praying that they continue to work because if that is not the case then it turns into a knee replacement. At least that is what happened with my left knee. Steroids and gel injections did nothing at all. 
My best friend who bowls with me has been trying to see my since the pandemic. Basically since March of 2020. She offered several times to come over and we would visit outside at a distance. We live about 25 miles away from each other but I just never felt like it. I was a bit of a poop during the lockdown. 

Yesterday after my gel injection I met up with her. We talked for two hours and it was awesome. Bowling does start in September. I want to go but I do have two issues that may change that. I don't want to wear a mask for 3 hours but I might. 

The alley is not allowed to ask anyone about being vaccinated so there is still a risk involved. Also we don't know what will actually be happening in our country in September. 

The other issue I have is on my right hand and it is a finger that goes into a hole in the ball. I get a steroid shot about 2 times a year in the knuckle and this time it lasted about 10 days and then all hell broke loose. It hurts all the time. Will most likely get a referral to a hand doctor. 
We are seeing Adam, Gabby and James tomorrow. It's been over two weeks since we went to Downtown Disney. I can't wait......
