  1. Glad your day went well Miki. Wow Annarchy, you have been busy. I am still trying to get home health in for Dh. Though I talked with his doctor on Monday, it seems as soon as we got off the phone he forgot to call. Not only that but never called a neuro doctor either. Called back today and he called me back and acted like he knew nothing about it but said he would call to see what he could do and they would call tomorrow. If I don't hear from them tomorrow, we are going to be looking for a new family doctor. I am so over not being able to get the help he needs. My next step is not one I want to do but may have to take him to ER, have him admitted to hospital and get home health through them. But that would only be for 6 weeks. Guess I will see what happens tomorrow. Part of Dh's surgical wound has healed. Has a scar but at least has healed. Now to just get the rest of it to heal up. At least that is going right. So much for wound care. I really will be learning a lot when the really hard times come. Set up an area in bedroom for Dh's sponge baths. Worked out well. Since he can't go into the bathroom any longer for fear of falling, I have the shower chair right by the bed. All he has to do is get out of bed, turn a little and sit on chair. Then I use the tray on the walker to put pan of water, soap, shave stuff and get him cleaned up. then change the water to rinse him off. Then clean water for him to brush teeth. It pays to have a lot of plastic pans like they use in the hospital. I bought several of the heavy duty dish pans and use 2 of them for sponge bathing. Got his hair cut and trimmed his eyebrows. He said he feels so much better now. Though it tired him out, I got him back in bed and he slept off and on for a while. Now if I can just get him to eat better. He doesn't eat much at all, so trying to get him to eat small meals at least 4 to 6 times a day. Got most of the dusting in den done. Just the bookcase to do now. Need to pull everything off of that and give it a good dusting. Still waiting for a couple of things to come in so I can finish my taxes. Just hope that didn't loose those in the mail. They are good for loosing everything else. Everyone here is complaining about going weeks and no mail.
  2. Dh had a better night last night. Thank you Lord. Only got up 3 times. Going to get him bathed in a little while. He is napping right now, so I will just let him sleep for a couple of hours. That will give me some me time. Cleaned kitchen and going to clean bathrooms right after I give DH his bath and get him settled again. I am a bit tired today, but need to keep going. Still haven't heard from home health. So going to call doctor this afternoon about it to see what is going on. My guess is they never called for home health. Doctors around here are getting worse and worse. I guess socialized medicine will finish us all off as we cannot get the help we need, and in a few months we will be standing in line to have operations or whatever. It's only a matter of time. And yes for me to say that I am getting frustrated that I can't get the help for DH that I need. Can't get hold of 2 of his doctors at all. Leave messages and no call back. If I don't get them soon, I am going to ride down to the offices to see if they are even open.
  3. Today, I got Dh cleaned up and fed him his breakfast. Then got some clothes put away that I had washed on Sat. Slow getting that job done with everything else going on. Our friend came over to give me the prescription for the wheel chair from Dh's doctor. Though we never heard from home health yet. Worked on taxes some more but still waiting for a couple of things to come in. Hope they will be here soon as I want to get that out of the way. Went to bank to cash a small check. That goes into the emergency fund. Paid some bills and DH bought me a new ring on line of course for Valentine's day. I haven't seen it yet. Said it has an inscription on it. Can't wait to see it. He has always bought me some type of jewelry at different times. Sometimes Christmas, sometimes birthday, etc. He really knows how to pick them out. I have loved them all. Want to get some reading in later tonight if Dh does ok. He has been sleeping on and off all day. Rough night. Hope tonight will be better. Need to work on the office some more tomorrow. Going through magazines that need to be trashed. I don't keep to many of those. Only the ones that pertain to garden, canning, sewing and crafting. The rest get dumped. I used to give them to the doctor's offices for the waiting room, but seems they are no longer aloud to take them because of corvid. I have noticed that they no longer have magazines in the waiting rooms now.
  4. Yesterday I made chicken salad, tuna salad and egg salad. Be nice if you could can that. We eat a lot of that stuff. Last night was egg, tuna and chicken salad on a plate of lettuce and tomatoes with some club crackers, (unsalted of course). I have already gotten the boston butts out of freezer, made vinagar based barbeque and canned that up. Turned out really good. Just wish they made hamburger buns with only 2 and 4 to a pack instead of eight. I don't always have room in freezer for extra bread. I really do need another small freezer but need to be able to get into garage to clean up what I had to move out for the ramp. Don't ask how I manage to get the car into garage.
  5. Ok, that is not good. I to will be checking the pump before lifting the handle. Don't like snakes either. Guess you never know where one will show up.
  6. I have been giving all this for Dh and myself some thought. Dh started getting sick 4 months before we even knew about the Corona virus. So in 2019 when I started noting something about Dh wasn't right. I had started going with him to the market to help him cook collards as he just wasn't right. Also made doctor appts for him from 3 different types of doctors. Then in 2020 when the corona virus hit. Dh really started going down to point of ER visits, hospital, more ER visits and 2 surgeries later, we have been stuck in house other than a doctor visit and me going only to pickup RX's and groceries as needed. No garden last year, yard sales nothing. Just staying home and none of it was from the corvid virus. Sometimes I wonder if God was in this mix to keep us home. No more cooking collards as that stopped in March because he couldn't do it any longer so no more going to market. And of course that keep me home with no going out to yard sales or other places we used to go. Not even church but that was shut down for a while and now for past several months it is in the car only and on Facebook. So no going to just sit in car to hear our preacher and at least wave to our church family. Though we do all talk on phone. Just not the same as being with them all. For me it seems like this virus never even existed, though I know it does. And yes I do take the precautions when I go to store. But that is not what forced us to stay home. I think sometimes did God do this to keep us home for a reason. The Corona virus or another reason.. Just don't know. I just pray for DH to get better though I know that is not going to happen. And it could be that even if the virus didn't happen this with Dh could still have happened and just coincidental. We have now stayed home since March of last year and I am thinking through all of 2021 will be the same for us. I am very tired, my muscles are hurting between my rib cage and that is worse than having my back hurt. Then with my arthritic hands, makes it very hard to do things and get Dh from point A to point B. Thinking maybe I should have talked to his family doctor about home health 3 or 4 months ago. Got this far helping him but now I am wearing out. Seems everything going on in this world, pandemics, wars and rumors of wars. Civil unrest coming, EMP's to think about and trying to prepare for that. That has been on the news as well as forums. Our taxes, utilities, gas at the pump, groceries, medicines, and everything else that is going up is enough to make anyone both physically and mentally tired. I think today is one of those days that I just feel both. But I know I must keep going for Dh. Doctor is putting into home health to stay with Dh so I can have a day off. One of my friends said on that day to come to her house and she has a bedroom all ready for me to just go into a sleep. Sounds good to me. Might take her up on that. I am praying for everyone on here and many others as well as my prayer list is getting longer with church members and friends that are also ill. Not from Corona virus but heart issues, etc. Put all the people all over the world that have this virus, I am praying for as well as for our country to repent and turn from it's wicked ways. I am no longer praying for our country but for it to repent. Jesus is the only way out of this mess. Without repentance we as a country will go down. .
  7. Right now I should be dusting and working on taxes some more. More things came in but still waiting on one bank. They are always slow. Dh woke me up several times last night. His hip was hurting and I can't make him understand he cannot sleep on that same side all the time, so I got him up to sitting position for a bit and rubbed some liniment on it. Let his sit for a bit more then got him laying down and rolled him to the other side. Right now my rib cage is killing me. Muscles right between the ribs on right side. Lifting Dh and rolling him side to side is starting to really wear on me now. So hoping home health will call tomorrow to get things set up so I can rest my muscles. Have to have the evaluation to see what he needs. His cousin has now got a setup for me if I can't get Dh up from a sitting position to go from one room to the other. It is like a chain thing. I call one number and if he can't do it at the time I need help, he calls the next person in line and so forth. So I now have 3 friends that will be running when we need some help. One of them is going to Dh's doctor on Monday to pick up an RX for a wheelchair for me. To far for me to go and leave DH alone. Going to start redoing the kitchen next week and cleaning out the upper cabinets. Having done those in over 2 years and I need to go through the food and move older food from my make shift pantry to kitchen. Need to order more of the no salt gravy from Health Heart foods also. I usually make mine homemade, but for a fast meal that I need gravy for this is fast and easy. And I don't need salt like I do with homemade. Need to figure out how to make homemade gravy with no salt that taste good. If the Healthy Heart store can do it, there has to be a way I can do it. As soon as I can get that extra time to start canning again, I am going to make Dh some more tomato soup. Waiting for roma tomatoes for that.
  8. Love plum jam. That looks really good. I need to get back into canning. Haven't had time with taking care of Dh. Got to get things in freezer canned. Hoping after home health comes in I can start getting it started again.
  9. Midnightmom, we must have been typing at the same time. I have seen that geography u tube channel before. Not to long ago. It's very interesting.
  10. Midnightmom, Dh's family doctor is taking care of everything for him and me as we both have the same doctor. The plastic surgeon did not know how to go about getting Dh wound care. He gave me the main number for the hospital and told me to just call them. Doen't work that way as he has to give a referral as to what needs to be done. So still no wound care. Home health should be calling me next week as I talked to family doctor this morning and told him everything going on. Even the wound care issue. Told him again I had to call rescue squad to get him up again as he decided he wanted to walk to the den and he made it to den but legs gave out. I was behind him and caught him and sat him on floor. Couldn't get him to the couch or chair. So just laid him back and put a pillow under his head so I could call rescue squad. I always use non emergency for this unless he gets hurt falling like he did once already. Told family doctor what the orthopedic said about the brain not sending a signal to the legs to walk. That sounds like ALS which is Lou Gehrig's disease. As soon as home health comes in and evaluates him for what we need. They will be getting him to the doctors he needs to go to and now he will be seeing a neurologist. Family doctor setting that up as well. Need to go to pick up RX at doctor's for a different type of wheelchair for him as well. Will do that next week. Doc. said I need to have a day off here and there so he is putting into the home health that I need to have a day off to rest so they will stay with him while I do what I need to do . Even one day will be a big help. Trying to go through the rest of the meds and get them put away. I am throwing away a lot of stuff. Out of date. Still have the old RX's Dh and I no longer take to go through and get rid of. Want to get that job out of the way before home health comes in. Don't need to say I am tired and my back is killing me right now. Going to be a heating pad night. And I had our friend from the market have them make lunch for the rescue squad today. He got it all together and took it to them for me. He is the manager of the Farmers Market and helps us out when he can.
  11. WE2, I am glad your grandson is doing better though it sounds like he still has a ways to go. Keeping him still in prayer. That song sounds like one I have heard before. Good song. And God is the only one that will bring us out of this mess we are in. Things are not looking good for 2021 in more ways than one. Mt. Rider I am so glad to hear you are doing better now. Kappy, keeping you and Mary in prayer still. This is not the time for any of us to be going through what we have endured. But God takes us all through trials and we just have to keep our faith that he will pull us through them all good or bad. Took Dh to orthopedic doctor today. He saw a different one this time that knew more about strokes and CHF. He said the problem is not arthritis nor the muscle in his leg to a point. Therapy would not really have helped him that much. Seems the stoke he had in 1993 is now playing against him. The brain is not sending signals to the legs to do what he needs to do to walk. If the brain doesn't send the signal then he falls. Not quite heard of it that way but will be researching it. I got him in car to go to doctor but when we got there I needed help to get him out of car. When we left the doctor himself came out and got him into the car. Good doctor. He said I can no longer keep trying to help him as I am going to hurt my back and mess up my neck and shoulder again. So he said to call the family doctor and get the help I need. Has to be done through a family doctor for Medicare it seems. Left message with family doctor to call me. He was not in today. So should here from him tomorrow. Orthopedic doctor also said I need to get him back into heart rehab. That would do more good at this time. Though that is 3 times a week and no one there would help me get him in and out of car. So that's out till I can get some help. That is also the reason I wouldn't go through the wound care. That was a daily trip and they said they cannot help get him in and out of car. So that was out. Doing wound care myself and it is looking better. But still not healed yet. Me tired and worn out. Muscle in side is killing me. It is in the rib cage and this has been an on going thing, so not from lifting Dh up and down. I can say. when someone can't walk, that is dead weight that makes his 140 pound body feel like 300 pounds. Very hard on me and being short doesn't help. Time to bring in the help. He will not be going to a nursing home, so they best not even suggest it. i will do what I have to do to bring in nurses when needed if I have to take out a reverse mortgage to do it. That is something I do not want to do as I plan on selling this house and getting out of dodge one day.
  12. That looks great Annarchy, I did that with the 2 turkeys I canned and made stock as well. That stock comes in handy for meals and yes the stores are like over $10.00 a quart in the stores here for bone broth. I need to get things together and get back to canning what is in my freezer as well. I really want that emptied before summer. I am finding some wide mouth pint jars at times but not many. Need more for canning what is in freezer. I have both chicken and beef and I want to make soups and stews with some of it and the rest just can the meat. I have a rack or two of ribs I want to cook for dinner on the grill when the weather warms up just a little. Don't think I can handle this 30 plus weather right now. Makes my bones hurt. But I think warmer weather is in the forecast. I will be watching that and cooking them then. I have pictures of the bone broth on my phone but have never tried to move the pictures to the computer to put on here. I am going to have to learn to do that. Just haven't had the time. Kappy, I don't know how I missed your post from last June. But yes, Dh has been done with therapy for at home, and was going to therapy for a while till he had the skin cancer removed. They didn't want him to do any therapy for a while after that. Then when he could go back he didn't want to go because it was so hard on him getting in and out of car. He is in stage 4 congestive heart failure. There is nothing more they can do for him. They clamped the mitral to stop the leaking , but his stomach it so swollen all the time and won't go down. And when I say swollen, I mean huge. He can't wear his jeans and I had to buy pants that were to big just to get them under his stomach. We do what we have to. But he needs to be comfortable and not having pants that are to tight because of that. He sees the orthopedic doctor tomorrow and as much as I don't want therapist coming to house, at this point in time I will make sure everything is behind locked doors and let them come. It would be easier on both me and him. And since it is Medicare they will only pay for 6 weeks of therapy unless the doctor comes up with a reason to keep them coming. Not sure if I want to start back on the canning or not with them here. But will figure out a plan if and when it comes to that point.
  13. Mt. Rider, I have some grain that is the long term grain and also some grain I put up in mylar bags with the 0x. absorbers. I am looking into buying another 25 lb bag if not to expensive. I have a grinder already. The non electric one. I want to get an electric one but will have to wait on that a bit. My gut tells me I better get some energy to do what I need to do around here at a much faster paste. But broken sleep every night getting up with Dh 2 to 5 times a night is a killer on energy. Trying to get myself into some sort of routine and have been talking with Dh about that. He needs to have a little consideration and corporate a bit better when I say it's time to do something like get his now sponge bath and he says wait a while or after this movie is over. That doesn't help me any. So today I put my foot down. And he got his bath when I said not when he decided to do it. He really doesn't think about all the things I am now faced with doing since he can no longer help me.
  14. I think this corvid virus, the elections and what has been going on for the past 4 years with the left attacking the right and so forth. Fake news, rising prices both in grocery stores and now at the pump, etc. Has played on everyone. I think we are all tired now of all of it. And trying to keep ahead of everything so we will know how to prep for hard times. It's a wonder any of us want to get out of bed. I for one am ready to crawl under the bed and not come out. Zzelle, hang in there, you are not alone in the being tired area. I think most of us are worn out. It has been a long hard year for most of us. Praying that things will get better soon. . Just take it one day at a time and remember God is in control.

    Pill Bottles

    Dh used to use bore snake. I think he still has all that stuff in one of his ammo can's. It has all the cleaning stuff in there. Oil, rags and all the rest of that stuff. Haven't pulled that out in a long time to check it. Thinking that might be a good idea to go through that stuff. Hello and welcome Dwarven 1. That is a great idea for bore snake. I also have a lot of the altoid tins. With some of those I have made up sewing kits and fishing kits.
  16. I must agree Mt. Rider your life is never a dull moment. Hope you are feeling much better now. Slept in this morning as I was up and down with Dh last night. When I did get to sleep, we had an 8 am amber alert that a 3 month old baby was kidnapped. Turned out it wasn't really a kidnapping but the mother left baby in unlocked car to go into Wawa's and some guy jumped into car and took off. This was in Chesapeake. The baby was found by a woman in Norfolk and the car was found 2 miles away. They haven't caught the guy yet as far as I know. Baby was ok. But I am sure when they catch him, he will be charged with both kidnapping and stolen car. Just glad the baby was doing ok. Got up and dressed and then got Dh his meds and breakfast. Got me a cup of coffee and then started back on taxes and had to make some business phone calls. Got another bill from Dh's second ER trip where the insurance had paid it, but they still wanted to bill me as well. So this time I called the insurance company and they are taken care of it. Dh has a small check he get's from the gas company he worked for every month. January's was lost in mail, so they are issuing another one. It's not much as it is what they reinburse him for what he pays for Medicare each month. I cash it and put it in our emergency fund every month. Helps to build that up a little. Worked on taxes some today but still waiting for things to come in from bank and one thing from his retirement. They are slow coming and I am ready to get the taxes done and sent off. DH's cell phone bill was late getting to them because of slow mail delivery. So when I got a bill for both December and January, I just repaid December's. Then got that bill in January along with the December bill that they should have gotten in Dec. So I only owed them 10 cents for Feb. bill. So I called and asked if that could be added on to Feb. bill. They said yes as the banks would not know what to do with it anyway. So that is taken care of now. Dh had his bath and will be going tomorrow to the orthopedic doctor about his muscles in leg. I hope and pray I can get him in and out of car with no issues this time.
  17. GD came over today and bought 2 new fish for DD fish tank. Said they needed a couple of algae eaters. So took care of that and then started on the taxes. Seems like forever getting all that mess together. Our taxes are complicated and we also have a trust that I am trustee of. So have that to deal with as well. Still waiting for some tax things to come in. Wish they would hurry up and get here. I can't file without those. Need to get back to that office and get it all cleaned up. I put a pile of papers in a box to go through later. I think most of it will be trashed. DH has done better today though he stayed in the bed all day again. But at least I got him out of it for 2 days. He sees the othropedic doctor on Thursday and I am hoping they can have phy. therapy come to house. Would be so much easier on me than trying to get him in and out of the car and having to take wheelchair in and out of car as well. My shoulder has been hurting and I think I pulled something and not a muscle. I had frozen shoulder before that came from my neck before I found out how bad the disk had collasped. Hoping I didn't do any damage pulling and lifting on DH. He is aware of what is going on with my shoulder and trying to pull himself up as much as he can. But he gets so out of breath. But he is trying a bit more.
  18. Jeepers I know how it is being a day or two late. Seems my plans get put off way to often. Glad you are getting things done now that you are feeling better and got all that energy. I finally got our bedroom cleaned up. Moved bed and dusted under it as the bed is like a hospital bed. Feet and head goes up and down, so lots of bars under it to dust. Got down on floor and under it to clean it all up. Then moved bed back after vacuuming the floor. Then got everything else dusted, vacuumed and stuff put away. Got the last of the medicines I had been going though out of the closet and put that in the office to finish going through. Almost ready to get that put into it's new location in an order that I can find what I need without having to dig through a box to find what I need. Still want to move the 2 book cases out of office and put in the small makeshift pantry since I use those for food and move the double bed from that small bedroom into the office. I am working on plans for that but still trying to get the office cleaned up and get rid of stuff. Filled the trashcan up last week and going to fill it up again this week. This mess has been piling up for way to long and time to go. I have been wanting to take those wire type shelving out of closet in office and put in wood shelving. Those work better for me than the wire type. And I don't like the way it is set up in there. So will be working on that sometime later in the year. Granddaughter is coming over tomorrow to bring an algae and something else for my DD fish tank. DD told GD to go buy them and bring it over. Though I think we need to clean the tank out. Before putting in anything else. It's not bad but just needs cleaning up some. DD and SIL are waiting on a home inspection on a house they found. Hoping they can get this one. Over 2 1/2 acres. Farmland. She does wild animal rescue and tends to them till they are ready to be set back out in the wild. She will have the property to do that with this house. She should be finished with school by mid summer. Plus she is still working medical billing for Smithfield foods. DH's surgical wound is starting to look much better. I decided to use my methods for getting it to heal up. Late last night DH woke me up to take bandages off because it was itching so bad. As they say, when it itches you know it is healing. I got some sterile saline wound flush to clean it out with. Doctor's nurse said to use dove soap to clean it but it didn't look any better. But the wound flush has made a big difference. Going to keep doing that for a while till I see some big improvement. Still using peroxide around edges along with the betadine after that. Then I ball a gauze pad different from what the doctor showed me as I watched a video on wound care on how that should be done. Then to keep it from sticking to the wound, I put Neosporin on the gauze and put into the hole to keep it from sticking and help it to heal from inside out. Seems to be working so far.
  19. Happy Birthday Kappy. Hope your day was filled with lots of fun and Birthday
  20. Mt. Rider glad to know you are feeling much better and getting organized. I keep trying to do that but I am still stuck in the office that I thought I would have been done in by now. Will try to finish it next week. DH got his bath this morning and is in the den for the day. I was able to get things done in bedroom and washed the sheets though I will have to make the bed back up soon. Didn't make it up as I didn't want DH going back to bed today. He has gotten out of breath quite a bit and feet and ankles are a bit swollen. But swelling in face has gone down. Calling his heart doctor on Monday to get him an early appt. He cannot stand on the scales to weigh him daily like I need to do. He is to much of a fall risk. So will see about what the doctor says. Got up this morning and got DH's breakfast and meds and set him down to eat and then I made me some coffee and read Bible before I got him a bath and stripped the bed. Felt good to be able to just sit for once and drink coffee and read. So I am going to do that again tomorrow so while he eats, I can have a bit of alone time with my Bible. Seems hard to do, but that is why I need some organization around here. That schedule helps a lot. And I am going to force a schedule on him. Maybe then I can get things done around here. Have been looking into the garden of Eden gardening. I think I can do that as I won't have to keep going out to weed it. No weeding with this one. Just plant and wait till harvest time. I can get Dh outside when time to harvest in the wheelchair and let him watch. i will put him to work snapping green beans and shelling butter beans. That will give him something to do later in the summer and hopefully will give him a since of helping out. I will be finding small things he can sit and do as spring comes. And yes I am over this cold weather. hasn't gotten out of the 30's here and more snow again tonight and tomorrow morning. Not sure about Church service as everyone still sits in their cars in parking lot and our pasture has everything set up outside. Thinking it will be to cold and most of our church members are elderly and won't drive in snow. i watch our service on face book. But not sure if there will be one to watch yet or not. Haven't heard anything as of yet.
  21. I to have had those gut feelings and I have one now that is telling me I need to start moving some things into a good hiding place. I have been looking into that very thing and have an idea of what I need to do but need to get to hardware store to do it. I need some PVC pipe, and the glue to cap the ends after it is filled with what I feel I need to put up in safe place. Have a few ideas but won't mention on the internet. That gut feeling we are being watched as to what we do on the internet is why I don't' mention a lot of what I do. Do I always follow my instincts, not always but most of the time I do. That is why I have been stocking and canning as much meat as I can. Something about that new green deal is not good for the meat industry. Just something I can't put my finger on yet but yes, I have a gut feeling about this. I will follow it and see where it leads.
  22. I knew about some of that, but really they are after full control of we the people through taxation. People won't be able to afford their guns and will turn them in because of these laws. Thus, taking away our rights to own them. People are not going to stand for this and yes we here in VA are already fighting this tooth and nail. The VCDL is on it and we had lobby day also. And will be again soon. I am a member of the VCDL.
  23. Midnightmom, I raw packed the turkey and canned it. I am going back tomorrow to get 2 more turkeys. One for freezer for Thanksgiving as the dates on these turkeys are through Aug. 2022. And going to get a second one to cook following the above recipe. I am really wanting to try that method. Had a lot of things planned for today, but DH would not get out of the bed nor get his bath. So did not get to change the sheets on bed today. He is in trouble. Told him he will get his butt out of that bed in the morning, get his bath and go to the den so I can clean the bedroom and change the sheets. I did not want to do that on a Sat. So my plans for tomorrow will be what I planned for today. But that's ok. I called the orthropedic doctor and he sees him on the 4th and back into therapy he goes. Mess up my schedule and I put you back in therapy. I have to get some type of schedule going if I am to get this house cleaned back up and get things organized. I need to get the taxes done as things are coming in for that now. I can't do things like that and keep running back and forth to the bedroom for things he wants. He will get out of that bed. Starting to wish I never got that new TV. He thinks he can now stay in there to watch TV as the old one would go out on him and then he would go to the den. We got about an inch of snow yesterday and it is about all gone now. Roads were never effected. But they are calling for it again on Sunday and this time we could get close to 2 inches. I don't have to go anywhere, so let it snow. I'm good for it. I like watching it coming down.
  24. Wow, Ann, How did I miss that picture. It is beautiful. Love the mountains. The mountains are calling me and I can't go. Rats. Or DH called me and I forgot about it and saw it this morning. O well, my mind is doing to much thinking and I stay to busy. Time for that break now. But I do love that picture. Miki, that was a great find. You really got lucky. Mt. Rider, start now checking around for a cardiac doctor for DH. And enlarged mitral valve may not right now may not be to much of an issue other than a skipping heart beat at times. The heart has 4 chambers, Mitral, aortic, pulmonary, and aortic valves. usually the issue will be the mitral valve. They all open and close like a gate letting blood flow from other chambers in one direction. Valves prevent back flow of blood into the chambers. From what you say, his sounds mild if heart is just skipping a beat now and again. But that is a sign of a heart problem and should be addressed now rather than later. One of the valve chambers, usually the mitral valve could be sticking and not fully closing off causing the skipped beats. Hope this gives you a bit of an idea about it. They call it Cardiomegaly when that happens and could be a sign of other heart conditions such as a weak heart muscle. i would get him into a heart doctor to be checked out while it is not bad. Could be an easy fix. Got the bone broth from all the turkey bones and such done. It cooked for two days in slow cooker. Turned out really good. So two 12 pound turkeys for under $7.00 got me 10 pints of turkey meat and six pints of bone broth. Not bad at all. Got clothes washed and kitchen almost cleaned up. Just a bit to do after dinner and mop floor. DH has been sleeping off and on all day. Which means I may be up half the night. So I called the orthro doc. He has an appt. on the 4th and he is going. They are going to see about getting phy. therapy in home for him instead of his going to them for it.
  25. They are nice pictures. Love the pups. Gunner and your other pub seem to really get along great.
