It's Cold Here.....

That about says it all! I am so tired of the cold weather. I will be glad when we can head to somewhere warm.

Mac had his Echo Cardiogram on Thursday and also the first half of his 2 day Stress Test. This was the resting part of the stress test and all he had to do was let them take the pictures while he was resting.

Friday we returned to the Cardiologist for the 2nd half of the test. They decided to do the medicine test instead of the treadmill. Mac said that he could see his heartbeat irregularity on the screen...said it would beat, skip a few beats, beat erratically, and then start again with a regular.

We go back to see the Cardiologist on Wednesday the 23rd for the results and to see what he thinks needs to be done. We are a little concerned. They discussed using a shock treatment of some kind.

Five years ago when they put his stent in part of the doctors wanted to do bypass surgery right then...there were 5 doctors consulting on hi case and 2 thought he should have surgery right away while 3 doctors wanted to try treating him with medication. So now with this new development, we wonder what the next step will be.

We sure haven't gotten much done at the house this week. I am still trying to get over this inner ear infection and it has been the pits!  I came home from the house the other night in the dark, unlocked the door to the RV, and started up the steps when I had one of those "dizzy" spells..well, I lost my balance and fell off the steps hitting my butt, and I am sore!  Nothing broken, thanks goodness!

We will be spending Christmas in Garnett with my brother and Jenni & family. I am going to cook a small meal instead of going out to dinner. Hopefully this Christmas dinner will go better than last year'

Mac & I re-arranged the cabinets in the RV and have already taken out some stuff that we don't think that we will use. I also re-arranged the pantry to make things a little easier to see.

I still need to go through the closet in the RV and take some things out. I just don't know what to keep and how much of each thing. I have a LOT of shoes(flipflops, athletic, and slipons) that I really don't want to get rid of. Hmmm...such a dilemma.

We got Shadow's bed and litter box all set up in the RV yesterday to see how it was going to work. Now we need to bring him out here for a trial run...

I have been struggling on how to display our grandkids photos...there are so many of them...17 and 3 great grandkids...when my sister was here over Thanksgiving we made a shopping trip to Lawrence and at Hobby Lobby we saw some memo boards and we both thought that they might work for what I want. I just have them sitting on the top of the kitchen slide...




Now I can add or replace easily without a lot of frames to work with. I still have a few frames and need to get the photos of our kids put in the RV, but I can do that anytime since I have copies of all of our photos either on the Laptop, External Hard drive, or USB Memory.

Well, I have a roast and fixings in the Crockpot and we are headed over to the house to do laundry and try to get some work accomplished today...LOl


We wish for all our family and friends to have a

Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year!

I hope that Mac gets a good report on Wednesday and that any treatments are quick and easy...

That's a great idea for the pictures...and it looks good too!!!

I hope you both have a wonderful Christmas and that the New Year brings lots of travel...with a wonderful trip to Tennessee in July and a return trip in October...

One final wish for Mac...I hope he finds a pair of red boots under the tree!!!

Hi Mac & Netters... Sure hope that Mac has a positive report and all is well with him... And you need to get better too... Those inner ear thingies are really a pain both in the ear and otherwise... I know you’re getting excited about heading out on the road... Sure hope we meet up someday... Have a super day and Holiday if you don’t post before Christmas...

Merry Christmas
Travel Safe

We will be thinking of you guys when you go back to the doctor. Been there, done that and it isn't fun.

Your pictures look great. That is the one thing I miss the most..finally got a digital picture frame and that works pretty good for us.

Merry Christmas to you both.

Sherri and I bought each other a digital picture frame. We have a USB memory stick with 300 pictures on it running during the day. This way we don't have to clutter up the desk and walls with all those prints. Girl you and Mac need to get yourselves together and come on down south here. Don't be falling anymore and tell Mac to take care of that ticker....that is an ORDER!!!
