  1. Well after a nasty battle with the insurance company and threatening to call the state Benefit Commission on them, hubby finally got back in to see the doctor. Yes this was for his post surgery check up. Needless to say my blood pressure was up and my bp meds were not working. But the good news is... .drumroll please....no treatments in the near future. The day of surgery his PSA was 9.11 at this post surgery check up it was 0.08 so no radiation in our near future. Thanks for the prayers. Oh I had my 6 month check up and all was good. We are both cancer free!
  2. Not only are prices going up but the packaging is getting smaller. Less tissues in the box, 42oz is the new 3lbs.
  3. I am liking the idea of mylar bags also for meals. Takes up less space and easier to store. Plus not as heavy when you have to grab and go. Not just running away but for vacations also. I had rather take the bags in a plastic bucket than try and haul glass jars.
  4. I drink to flavors of coffee...triple chocolate with smores creamer and caramel with caramel creamer. I just stated drinking coffee this last year and well I won't see 50 ever again. Thanks but, I will stick to my chocolate chip pumpkin muffins and pumpkin bread. May throw in a pumpkin pie.
  5. So we had a few days of fall weather a few weeks ago then hit triple digits again for a week or so. But today it is raining. Has been since 3am, and it is in the 50s. So it is bison chili for dinner but snack today is pumpkin muffins. I am sorry but fall screams pumpkin muffins, or pumpkin bread. No pumpkin latte's though, that is just gross.
  6. Finally my monthly splurge for Kindle Unlimited is paying off...well it has paid off before but I have been wanting this book but refused to spend the month. Right on Kindle Unlimited it is a free read....The Meals in a Jar Handbook by Stephanie Petersen aka Chef Tess
  7. Being from Alabama it sounds like home
  8. Maybe you can look into an old shipping container to store everything in and then still have it on the property later for storage. We have scrapped our long term plans which broke my heart, but it is back to the drawing board.
  9. MtRider both are clear. The zip lock just feels thicker to me.
  10. I purchased two boxes of the storage bags that you use the vacuum to suck the air out of, the first brand was Ziplock and the second brand was Magic Bags. Hands down the Ziplock brand is better. I stored sleeping bags, quilts and curtains that we are not currently using. Several weeks ago I "shrink wrapped" these items using both bags. Both are the same size and hold about the same; however, the magic bags are a little thinner and let air back in. The Ziplock brand is still almost shrink wrapped. For the money I think Ziplock is better.
  11. Well the doctor is 70% sure he got all the cancer. It was out side the prostate and in fatty tissue. No radiation right now. As long as the PSA stays in the normal range then there will be no further treatments. If it starts to climb they will start a round of radiation just to be safe. Right now we are going with...they got it all! Go back in one month then every six. I am going to make my second 6 month check up a month early so we can do them both the same day. That way we only have to go to the big city once. I could have used a valium or a stiff drink after driving there yesterday. Those people are crazy and they have perpetual road construction. 2020 the year we start working on our bucket list!
  12. So when hubby and I married back in 1981 we went as traditional as possible, that included our wedding vows. The past few years has really put those vows to the test. Between his degenerating back, my cancer and now his cancer, I am ready for the in health part. As most of you know I was diagnosed with uterine cancer back in February and had a total hysterectomy at the end of March. Well three, yes three freaking, months to the date that I had a total hysterectomy hubby was diagnosed with prostate cancer. He opted for a radical surgery to remove the prostate. He had that procedure on 9/12. We know several men that opted for treatment only to have the cancer come back with a vengeance and he didn't want to take that chance. Plus we are enjoying grandbabies now so we don't need those parts. Hopefully when we go back for a check up tomorrow we get good news and can move on to the next health issue...his back. I work for Prime Healthcare and they have hospitals from coast to coast. Well the Prime hospital in Gadsden, Alabama has a neck and spine surgeon that has invented spacers for people's backs. Our doctor is sending all of hubby's records to this doctor to see if he is a candidate for these spacers. Best thing is my insurance will cover it 100% since it is a prime hospital!!!! Plus we have family and friends there so no hotels and eating out. I am trying not to get my hopes up but it is exciting news. It will mean the possibility of being pain free. Something that has not been part of our lives for four years. Hopefully this time next year we will pain free and hiking.
