One day last month (July 20th to be exact), I sat here in this un-airconditioned house waiting for the delivery of the new floor tiles for about 4 hours. Then after he had loaded everything (10 heavy boxes) and I had locked up the house and headed to the bus with my "cadallic walker". I thought since it was a back track from the bus stop to our house I'd leave by the other end of our block. All of McClellan is confined to this one block. We are the 4th house on this side and our number is 1801 and then there are 2 other sets of numbers the 1701s and the 1901s. Doesn't make much sense to me but hey, I didn't set up the numbering system.
Anyway, I went to the corner and turned right and then promptly got lost for over 45 mins in 104 degree heat pushing my walker. I had my oxygen and a bottle of water but I managed to get a case of 'heat stroke' or so I was told that I did. A 3 day stay in the hospital and I was diagnosed with a small heart attack and low potassium. Had to have 3 transfusions of the plasma with electrolytes in them and 6 horse sized pills of potassium. They didn't do the 'cardiac stress test' since the one doctor decided that I'd already had the equivalent of their treadmill test walking around for 45 mins in 104 degree heat. And even after a cool shower and resting in the recliner for about 4 hours I asked Bridgit to take me to the ER. The chest pressure was making it difficult to breathe again. So we did and they decided I needed to be their guest for 2 more nights. Best thing is they brought me ice cream whenever I asked for it.
Now I'm going to start making more scrapbook pictures. I had to buy another copy of my program and it arrived yesterday. I'll save this draft and actually post it after I'm done playing with the new version of Scrapbook factory deluxe.
Ashley with her 2 grandmothers who went to Oregon for her graduation from Chef's school.
A little day out and a tour of the pirate ship "The Lady Washington". At least it looks like a pirate ship and the crew all look like pirates in the dress code. No eye patches nor parrots on board.
Lorene taking a selfie at the beach in Oregon after her daughter graduated. It looks like Ashley's getting wet for the first time and it looks cold.
Mia and Devin on the Lady Washington.
Lorene's 3 daughters together again and very happy.
Olivia went camping with her Grandpa Kenny and Grandma Stephanie. They even got her mother to go and spend some time in a tent and the other niceties of roughing it!!
Well it's time to get our act together and go to Lorene's for dinner. Ashley the new Chef's school graduate is cooking dinner and we are all set to be amazed.
See you again in a couple of days.
