From now on I'm telling people it's my thyroid.

Sounds good to me.

Tummy suddenly started hurting while hubby was test driving a car.

It wasn't the car. Just went away.

OK, time for dinner.

See ya!

m-I-l called Mrs Ice today and mid way through the conversation casually mentions the a/c in the area where they spend most of the day went out yesterday. IT'S BEEN 105 THE LAST 4 DAYS! I'm thinking they might want to mention this before now. (It's not like we haven't talked to them everyday)I have 2 portable units I could have brought over and have running within 30 minutes....Yeeeesh

Was it because "it's no big deal" to them or they "didn't want to bother you" or they didn't realize there was a quick solution?

And how's Mrs. Ice doing now?

My m i l use to say she would go without food before AC. She was serious. Hubby's childhood home had AC when almost nobody did.
Now she wears sweaters in the summer.
Maybe they didn't think it was that hot.

Dad update

CT scan showed large cancerous mass pressing on dad's esophagus. Dr recommended 10 radiation treatments to start next Wed. My aunt by marriage, who dad strongly dislikes, is having radiation at same place. If we can schedule it could get rides with her for most days. Dad even agreed to it as long as she brings us home right home afterwards. It would make life so much easier then trying to find rides for 10 days in a row. We'll see.

That should add some excitement to the process.

Maybe enough to make him forget why he is going.

Better if he is worried that he has to ride with that pia, than what he is going for.

I think with Mrs. Ice ill they didn't want to be a burden. They were uncomfortable, they admitted that when I went over tonight. Their other son in law brought over a spare unit he had. (surprised me 'cause he and his wife usually resist doing anything to help them).
Mrs. Ice is doing as well as she can, Tuesday should be her last chemo treatment and she is looking forward to starting to feel better.

In the end only kindness matters

She likes dad and hopefully isn't aware of his strong dislike. It goes back to when her husband was dying. She moves extremely slow and wanted everyone to make an appt to see him. That didn't go over very well with his family; spending time is how they show love. For her its giving gifts and cards. So they felt she was keeping them from her brother and she felt they didn't love their brother because they didn't give him anything. Actually she thought it was because they didn't want her to have anything. She is a little off upstairs. Which isn't surprising considering her brothers used to take loaded guns and go out in the woods and try to shoot each other for fun. That was one family a body called before visiting!

Thankfully he isn't worried. Just wanting to be able to swallow better.

Ahhhhhhhhhh. 15 pounds of potato salad in the fridge. Chocolate sheet cake, done. PB&J bars, done. Just going to sit here for a while and then clean up the kitchen and set up the tables and chairs. A couple people aren't coming after all so I don't have to set up a table in the living room. Thank heavens.

Dad update
Went to my 3rd cousins wedding Saturday. Dad said he wanted to go to the reception. I should have been firm and said no. He overdid it and has been coughing his head off and got a fever blister.

He finally let me give him his under the tongue cough medicine. He is sooo funny. He is dying of cancer, yet he doesn't want to take anything with narcotics in it because he might get addicted. So he has under the tongue cough medicine, liquid morphine, and Kadian at night, morphine pill.

Had to do the same thing for the anti-depressants, He takes a pill in the morning for his anger and one at night to help him sleep. I feel a little bad lying to him, but it makes like so much easier when he isn't depressed and coughing his head off.

On a different note it is thundering and lightening like crazy. Great rolling thunder like waves going from south to north. May get some rain. Had some yesterday. Down in Panama City they have been getting tons of rain again. The roads were running with water. Who knows when our road will be fixed.

Well better go and do something with the grapes my Aunt brought us. They are scuppinions (sp?) and I don't care for them. Dad isn't eating much since he is having trouble swallowing. So I will make some freezer jelly and grape skin tarts. Hope to stop back by later.
