Munky, sending up prayers and best wishes to you and the Mr. for a speedy and comfortable hospital stay. Let us know how he's doing when you can.

Ditto, Munky - best wishes and all good thoughts to you and Mr. Munky.

When I had my surgery last year, I was in the brand-new wing of the hospital. The rooms have couches that fold out into beds so family can stay. DH didn't use it, but he made good use of the recliner Take care.

Munky, I am sending prayers and thoughts to you and your hubby! Keep us posted.

I am starting the process (all over again) of getting the townhouse ready for sale. We are doing it for real this time, no turning back. We have found a way to not move out so far by not being picky about getting an actual house. We are looking at strata properties (as opposed to the leasehold we have) and there are some good ones in areas we are interested in.

So, I am packing up stuff that we won't need, cleaning all the nooks and crannies and hanging curtains that were taken down when our cat Monkey was a kitten and loved to climb them.

As I am also still in a major pain flare, I am taking it slow and steady!

I got my notice that I need to renew my driver's license. There's a new law that adds a $5 fee if you go there to renew in person!! Fine with me, I'm happy to do it online!

In MA we can renew online (every 5 years) but not twice in a row. They want you to come in after ten years and have your eyes checked. Then you can renew online once again. Then, after you reach a certain age, no more online renewals.

Thanks Andy. I knew that there had been some more recent changes. My daughter worked for the Registry for more than 30 years. So I would get an earful every time they made a change.

I am glad that they make the elderly come in for retesting each time. There seems to be an epidemic of folks running into homes lately. We have a few here that need to be tested on a daily basis.

I have a State ID and there is no expiration date on it. A month after I got it, they started to put the dates on. The only problem is that now every time I show it, I am always asked why there is no date on it. The folks in the voting station downstairs always ask me why.

I also have a handicap plaque. The first one I got it had a two year life. But my daughter was working at the Registry and I got the new one automatically. Now I have one that is good for ten years. And they send me the new one automatically. The one for The Ride is a joke. I can only use it during snow or rain.

Taking the day off.
Plan on sitting here with you guys all day. How about that, Jack!?
We need a break.

Hubby is still in the same boat we started in at. This Cardiologist only did an EKG on him. Barely looked at it. Never did tell him anything about it. Or tell us anything that we didn't already know. I flat out didn't like that Cardiologist.I really bit my cheek to keep myself from saying anything.
We just came home after that.

The tests that he was supposed to have done, he has to wait some more to get.
Still keeping a close eye on him. Waking up in the middle of the night just to make sure he's still with me. This whole thing is becoming ridiculous.

Ouch lynnkath...hope you're feeling better by now!

Munky...we were posting at the same time so I just edited my post....aaargh, how frustrating! Sending good thoughts to both of you, and glad you're taking a day off.

-------------
I've been planting and re-potting plants all morning...just pretty much digging in dirt this beautiful spring day. The patio is a disaster - potting soil and dirt everywhere. I'm taking a coffee and lunch break now, but determined to get another couple of hours of work done while everything is still out.

I also managed to get Tyler's favorite ball that he batted about 25 feet up in a tree and it got stuck. I kept throwing a larger ball at it and finally knocked it down.

Next time CM speak up. There are such rules as "Patients Rights." You and your hubby have the right to know what tests show. So what if you take up the doctor's time. That too is your right.

I recently had my six month physical. I asked for comparisons on all my tests between this six months and last. And my doctor took the time to answer every one of my questions. I learned something new about my thyroid this time. A problem I have had my whole life and got an answer to because I spoke up.

The next time you are ever in a hospital, you should see signs all over the place regarding 'Patients Rights.' Read them.

If you were to be able to get a look at a doctor's appointment book, you would see that so many minutes are allotted to each patient. If the doctor can shave off a few minutes with each patients, then he can leave early that day.
