Good evening all
Yesterday Mrs. Ice had her first scan since finishing her treatments. She got the disc and started analyzing the images (without even knowing what she was looking at) She thought she saw masses in her lungs based on internet info and scared the hell out of us both. I know better but she was so convinced it freaked me out.
Official reading came back today as all clear confirmed by a radiologist friend as well as the hospital dude. We were elated/relieved!! I hope she has learned the internet is not a place for self diagnostics. I can't go through that needless stress again.

In the end only kindness matters

O M G, I'd need a stiff drink after that. A large one. Glad everything looks good.

That's amazing news! So glad to hear.

But I can understand the temptation to look on the internet. I'm surprised they gave her the scans in advance--I know my scans aren't released to me until AFTER I've heard from the doctor.

My speech is not parsing. I am speaking in ellipsis.

Son called. He got a culture shock and will have to talk to dorm mate. Dude is from somewhere in South America (I forget which country) and he's throwing his used toilet paper in the trash can.

Told son to keep it light and humorous.

My mother did that (any many people in her neighborhood), too, because of septic tank problems. But only No.1.

Sorry for the scare. Happy for the great news.

I was watching the screen while they did my dad's CT scan. I could clearly see the tumor pressing on his esophagus. There were also what I thought were other tumors in his lungs. The technician said, 'No, that is his diaphram and stomach.' I can totally understand why she thought she saw tumors.

Dad update - He finished his last radiation treatment on Tuesday. YEAH!!!

The radiation has him coughing more and he is coughing gunk up so he isn't taking cough medicine. However, coughing his lungs up sounds horrible and totally exhausts him.

He joined the church I go to yesterday. His pastor only comes by at the first of the month. Its blantantly obvious since he doesn't call or come by any other time that he wants dad's tithe check. The really sad thing is people from my church have called and visited him more than anyone from his church. He grew up with some of the members and they still don't call him unless he calls first.

I finally got the sleeping medicine that works for me. I called the doctor back after a week of falling asleep right away just to be totally awake in three hours and not fall back to sleep the rest of the night. I slept most of last night, can't remember the last time I did that!

I called the road dept yesterday to ask when they might get federal money to start working on the road. With the gate locked up the pond is down below the spillway. When I called they said the water was still running and they would need to get permits from DEP and an engineer would need to be involved. I let them know the upper spillway hasn't been running in about two weeks.

I emailed and told the road dept. man that I was assuming, since I hadn't heard back from him in response to my email, that he was going to use the same culverts. I let him know that I would be calling DEP tomorrow to ask the gentleman I have been talking with to come up and give me options about how to mitigate road damage and get more water on the pond. I cc'd the DEP man on this message. I mentioned that I assumed he would be starting work soon since he seemed so concerned that the road get fixed so the school bus could get through. I also mentioned that perhaps while the DEP man was here he could provide the permits for the lower spillway since it runs continually.

Hopefully this will get him busy or he will tell me they are going to put box culverts in place, which would be worth the wait.

My neighbors 3/4 a mile up the road are lifesavers. They have been coming down and taking our garbage can the 3/4+ miles up to the highway so the garbage people will pick it up.

I am so tired of all the garbage with the road! At least once or twice a day we have idgets (my word) who come down and try to go through. It is so silly. I suggested to the road dept that they put another road closed sign out here in front of the house to prevent someone from sliding into the lower spillway. Their response - put a second barricade up at the highway HELLO - the people are already driving around the barricades, how will a second one stop that? Oh well.

I have been thinking of trying to get an apt. in the neighboring town when Dad dies. It would probably be easier to start a rental history here than in a big city like Tucson. But I still may move in with a friend in Vancouver. Time will tell.

D'name I hope this is entertaining enough for you. It's the best I have to offer.

At least your church helps out.

When I was a kid, the priest in the Catholic church did help. It could be because my parents were active in the church and some of the priest were in their circle of friends. Yes, there were priest in my house for parties.

Other than that, the Catholic church does nothing .
My mom can still walk without help. When she stops driving in the fall (when her car insurance needs to be renewed) there is no way to go to church anymore.

You would think that the church would have some way for the elderly people, especially those who just need the ride no other help, to get to church.

Some parishes are better than others. My uncles church at least had a group for people who had recent deaths in the family.

Heck, my sister in law had to ask the minister of the church across the street from the catholic church, if they had a room the Girl Scouts could meet in.
THE GIRL SCOUT TROOP FROM THE CATHOLIC SCHOOL!

Then they wonder why people don't come to church anymore.

Good morning everybody! The last of the city concerts is tonight. I followed the Clemson NC State game last night on ESPN on my phone and it didn't use up all of my data. We have postponed going back to the mountains until Sunday. Frontier Citywide wifi is horrible.
