Getting ready for my trek into the city for my pain clinic and still smiling about my Canucks! My faith never wavered and they came through big time!

Yay!

Me, I'm headed to work. Have med rooms to clean and organize. It's going to be a messy day!

As PF wrote, "Yay!"

I hope the pain clinic does wonders for you.

I'm working on tax returns and popping in here.

Glenn and I are about to make our quarterly trek to the doctor for arthritis checks. Since I was there last time, the doctor ordered an x-ray of my bad knee. Don't know what the outcome of this appointment will be in view of what the film shows. I just know it's BAD. I didn't need the technician to tell me that when she saw the images.

However, the arthritis that's been plaguing me the most is in both my hands, thumbs to be specific. I've lost almost all strength there and the pain is beyond description and I have a very high pain tolerance.

I think I'm going to have him address my hands before anything is done with my knee.

(((hugs))) That sounds awful. I hope the doctor can do something good for you.

Oh Katie, I'd like to hug you. I understand. My hands are a mess as well. At time when I go to do something the pain is so bad I almost give in and cry. Poor dh has to help me with the pants hangers I just can't work them anymore. I hope the doctor can do something to help you Katie.

I'm waiting for laundry to get done, so I can trudge off to the store. It's supposed to rain on/off today, and I'm not looking forward to it.

We are in drought conditions. They are telling us it is supposed to rain this weekend. I am hoping for flood conditions. Brush fires are breaking out all over the state.

I just finished watching the funera lservices for the Police Chief in NH. There were 2,000+ police officers from all over North America and even Europe. It was the most beautiful and moving funeral service I have ever seen. They had a police helicopter fly over with the siren wailing. And the bagpipers were playing Amazing Grace. They presented the flag to his wife and she lost it completely when they began to play Taps with an echo bugle playing it in the background. The last thing they did was call his car which was parked there. When it didn't answer. of course they made the announcement that the Chief had answered his last call. By then I lost it.

My grandaughter is married to a cop in Everett, where I lived before coming back to Eastie. So everytime I hear of a bank robbery or some officer being hurt in Everett on the news, the first thing I do is call my granddaughter. In spite of all of his training, he is cop that takes risks to protect others. He did the samed thing when he was a fireman. He ended up in the hospital twice helping a follow firefighter get out safely.
