I loved the opening today, Amy. Love thinking of the good old days. Thank you three!

I plan to post later. I've been into making good old spaghetti sauce and I'm going to eat a meal.
Its 2:00 here so what meal this is, I'm not sure but I am very hungry!

Feeling pretty good. Still have some abdominal pain which will clear up over time. Slowly gaining back some of the 35 pounds I lost during the chemo treatments. I'm so skinny now a strong wind will pick me up and move me down the road. ;^)

No calls from tests yet, they can't seem to find them. Surgery is supposed to be Wed morning. They have had since Thurs to read the test. They have left me hanging in HIGH STRESS level all weekend and it is now 1:30 PM Mon. And when it concerns your heart that is even more stress. Time is fast running out. I am in tears from the stress, which has triggered a full blown Fibromyalgia attack.

Happy Monday, Jaycee.

Not quite 12:00 noon here but I’m thinking of dinner. :)

MrJust and I will have a light lunch and will have dinner tonight. Marissa is in the last week of state testing so have been trying to prepare nourishing meals. She has been balking at large breakfasts. Ahhh .... almost teenagers. :)

Thanks for posting the link to our WWII +70 Years thread, Amy. Maybe somebody that hasn’t seen it before will pay a visit. The next month is going to be a crucial period of the war and the reading will be correspondingly interesting.

I knew it the moment they said there was a glitch in the EKG, CT stress test came back worse than hubby’s, who eats all the bad stuff, while I eat healthy stuff.

So have to see a stinking cardiologist tomorrow, all because of a glitch in an EKG. And with my feet being the way they are, the drug stress test has to be done...and I am one of those who are SUPER hyper drug sensitive. Wanna bet a dime they will want me on drugs? Zetia the most side effect riddled one is the most common used one..and the one I will react to the fastest.

That is what the PCP did for the ostoporosis...Fosamax nearly 2,000 lawsuits over degenerative jaw disease and broken femurs...Already have a degenerative spine, don’t need any more health problems. Heart attack risk factor is 3.5 which is the middle for women my age.

Am throwing out all their damn drugs except my Synthroid that I have to have.

I didn’t know that walnut stain would ever come off. A squirrel brought in a walnut and hopped up on my outside table
on the patio and I had beige rubbery place mats and that
squirrel took that hull off on the place mat and there’s still some stain on it. I soaked it in hot soapy water and use a little brush on it and you can still see the stain a little. Sure was a mannerly squirrel, keeping his food on
the place mat....LOL!

I had one drug stress test one time and said I’d never have
another one! First of all, I kept telling the girl that
my arm was killing me where the medicine was going in and
she said it would stop in a minute. I then told her I didn’t
think the needle was in the vein and she sorta ignored me
and finally I emphatically told her there was something
wrong with the needle and sure enough, the arm started
swelling and the medicine was going under the skin. The
needle was not in the vein just as I had told her. And she
had to start all over....made me furious!

Good luck, Gail. I hope all goes well! You sure are
having lots of problems. Praying it lets up soon!

It does bring a tear, teenie!

I collected some of these during the Iraqi war and I thought
I could post them on Military Monday. Some are very sweet.
I’m so glad I kept them and thank you!

I enjoyed your beautiful Eagle today also! I hadn’t had
time to go back and scan all the posts today. I got into
spaghetti making and it takes a while and my back was giving
me a fit and it wasn’t time for a pill yet and I had to just
wait.

The sketti was good, too! It was vegetarian by the way.
I didn’t have my ground meat thawed so I used a basket of
mushrooms, a large bell pepper, and a Vidalia onion and of course my sauce! I didn’t miss the meat at all. First
time I’ve done that.

I pray daily that he won’t get re-elected! I worry about it
so much. It truly upsets me listening to him boast about
killing Bin Laden. He didn’t do anything. He could give a
thumbs up or down and I’m sure all the others did all the work
but he wants to boast now trying to get re-elected! He thinks
he’s Superman and I think he’s a piss ant! They had to bring
him in from the golf course to make the decision. Grrrr~~~

Did you see the old timey pictures I posted for you?

I helped my Mom do laundry on one of those wringer washing machines. I’ve used an old phone once or twice. Ironing ..... yuck. I still hate ironing.

We have more leisure time now and I would hate to go back to the “Good Ole Days”, but they were a lot less stressful. :~)

GOOD MILITARY MONDAY TO AMY’S PLACE!



The Soldier’s Code

1) I am an American fighting man. I serve in the forces which guard my country and our way of life. I am prepared to give my life in their defense.

2) I will never surrender of my own free will. If in command, I will never surrender my men while they still have the means to resist.

3) If I am captured, I will continue to resist by all means available. I will make every effort to escape and aid others to escape. I will accept neither parole nor special favors from the enemy.

4) If I become a prisoner of war, I will keep faith with my fellow prisoners. I will give no information or take part in any action which might be harmful to my comrades. If I am senior, I will take command. If not, I will obey the lawful orders of those appointed over me, and will back them up in every way.

5) When questioned, should I become a prisoner of war, I am bound to give only name, rank, service number, and date of birth. I will evade answering further questions to the utmost of my ability. I will make no oral or written statements disloyal to my country and its allies, or harmful to their cause.

6) I will never forget that I am an American fighting man, responsible for my actions, and dedicated to the principles which made my country free. I will trust in my God and in the United States of America.

President Dwight D. Eisenhower, August, 1955.







Nos genuflectitur ad non princeps sed Princeps Pacem!

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

More than my share.This is what I battled from the 12th of April until just about a week ago..COCONUT OIL CURED IT NOT THEIR DRUGS.

This is not my photo, but looks almost the same only mine was on both sides. This is what I wanted the surgery for, the skin fold is very large for my small body, even though it is called a medical condition, caused by a very poor sew up job from a Hystrectomy, no general surgeon does AB Reconstruction..only Plastic's do..then it is a vanity called a 'tummy tuck'.

Hot weather is not my friend, and Memphis has 100+ degrees summers for 3 or more months.

If you need a breast reconstruction following a masectomy ins will cover that. Get your nose broke and sinus passages messed up and they cover that. But not this. I see no difference, they are all medical conditions in need of repair. And only one kind of surgeon can do it...Plastic Surgeon.
