No Humor: “Ad” in my blog!

Posted on

I come on here, after a rest and I find ads that I did not okay on my blog…not humorous! I did not get an e-mail or notice of any kind about putting ads in my blog. What adds to this pet peeve is my annoyance that the ad(s) are about “Brain training games”!! Is someone trying to tell me something here?? (scrunching nose!) For the record, I do not want ADS on my blog unless I get a kick back from them and personally okay them! :)Stink eye for those who put ads on my blog without my approval!

Anyone with knowledge of how to remove these ads or know who to contact about it I would be much appreciated.

Just an FYI on my Husband; he is off his blood pressure and triglycerides meds. Although, his blood pressure is great, his tri’s are still high; it was found that the tri meds were the reason for the kidney failure. The DR. is monitoring him closely which is reassuring.

Also, I am already writing my lists for camping (RV) season. 🙂 I can’t wait!

Life: Eventful Past Week

However you want to put it, “stuff” happens, for the good or the bad; stuff happens. You can’t change most of life’s surprises and sometimes you don’t want to even acknowledge those surprises.

Although, the week started out enjoyable. My husband and I went to the dollar store to get some stocking stuffers. I told him to go find three items to put in HIS stocking. His grin was enormous, as if I had given him a prime rib dinner. My plan was to preoccupy him so I could get my shopping done. Here he comes with three items and he tells me why he chose those items and then off he goes again. Here he comes again, “I’m swapping out this for that” and he’s gone again. This happened about four times. When he was all done with his choices, he felt the need to follow me and show me every item he thought that “I” should look at or buy. “What about this?” or “this is cool…look!”, but then when his tummy starts grumbling with hunger, so does he. Shopping ended.

Next day…off to my husbands doctor to evaluate his blood work, which has been ever-changing. A doctor that we hadn’t seen before walks through the door. “Why are we here today?” he asks. We explain; first we came for his blood pressure, then blood work shows his triglycerides were 1129 and noticed his protein is low. So they put him on meds for the tri’s. Told us to come back in 3 months. Okay..then redo blood work. They say,”hmm, your your tri’s are okay (129), but your potassium is 6.(high)and your blood pressure(100/63 and pulse (52) is low”. They make us go back two days later to check potassium again. “We never heard the results for that, can you tell us?” we asked. He looks over Hubs chart and says “your creatinine is high…which means kidney failure” and then he looks at both of us and sees that we are in shock and then says, “I’m sure you HAVE heard that before, right?” I couldn’t even look at my hubby; I said ” a.. NO! We had never heard THAT before. He told me to scoot my chair closer to him ( oh crud!) as he tells us that it could be from all the surgery meds (ibuprofen) during the 6 surgeries since 2005 or something to do with his blood pressure/pulse. He wanted to take a ultrasound of his kidneys, but we don’t have insurance, so he changed his meds and we have to go back Jan 24th to see if it helped. If it didn’t help he said that we will HAVE to do the ultrasound no matter what. We walked out of the doctor’s office numb and thinking…Merry Christmas! 😦

Ultimately, this Christmas took on a different feel and it seemed to be more about making THIS Christmas special and memorable, not about the gifts so much. We laughed more, baked more cookies, Cinnamon rolls, listened to Christmas music, watched all the Christmas shows on TV, a lot of gazing out the window, and we’ve been praying A LOT!

If any of you reading this could send up a pray on my husbands behalf, it would be much appreciated. 🙂

Humor: With a Bit of Annoyance

I find it humorous and a little bit annoying when I am in peaceful la la land of sleep and my sweet endearing husband’s voice is faintly heard; his voice becomes louder and louder until I hear his grumbling clearly. What, you might ask would be so urgent, for him to wake me up? You would think it would be something huge to wake a person early early in the morning, right?

WRONG!

What is he telling me? “Kitty just threw-up a fur ball!”; meaning…get up and clean it up before “I” throw-up” 🙂 Ha ha, with a hint of grumble grumble from me.

Gotta love my hunky man!
