  1. On the 12th my left index finger was amputated just about in the middle. It’s short and sore and slowly healing. It has these stitches that stick up and it looks like a balding troll doll. I so want to see my family sigh but we are still in lockdown. It’s long days of being in bed or sitting in my wheelchair. I have a roommate who is weird and cries for attention (fake crying) and yells at the workers who walk by our door. She’s so annoying. She lies all the time like she claims she had a tumor and brain surgery, stolen from me, she had a stroke. She says this stuff right in front of me. I thought maybe it was the stroke, thought she was confused, but no, she just rude and nuts and knows full well what she is doing. She wants the door open at night, I want it shut. The lights in the hallway are bright all night. She told the staff that she is having nightmares on nights that was my turn to have the door shut. It’s not dark in here, and shutting the door keeps it quiet. No she has to have her way, so the door is open. She wanted to be in my space so one day they shoved my bed, with me in it and moved me across the room. I was pissed told them so. Now she wants my bed, so far she hasn’t gotten that. Okay, sorry, needed to vent. They just gave me a pain pill so hopefully that will put me to sleep.
  2. So sorry to hear about your Aunt Mary. Times like this are so very hard. “Hug” I finally met the brain surgeon who saved my life. I don’t have any memories of her. She said I came in on Dec. 15th so septic that didn’t think they could save me. I was not able to have surgery until Jan. 8th I was much worse off than I knew about. Not meaning to talk about myself all the time, but I am learning as I go along.
  3. We ran out of milk here, no deliveries have shown up. We are totally relying on delivery people who trying to stay safe themselves. i got to go out yesterday for a pre-opt appointment, it was so beautiful outside. The trees are full of white or pink flowers and there are bushes everywhere that have lavender colored flowers, just lovely. It was warm and sunny, I loved it. But then you wonder about the virus, sobers you up. I have to have my left index finger amputated, it turned black during surgery and the tip died. Not looking forward to that but better than losing my hand or worse.
  4. Oh goodness mockingbird, I hope you are better soon. I am in a nursing home in North Carolina and it is crazy here. I had pneumonia two weeks ago, most the people in my hall had it. They kept us in our rooms and they just let us out Tuesday to be shut back in the next day. The second someone has a fever they worry it’s the virus, it is scary. None of my family can visit. (Hug)
  5. My daughter teaches two English comp classes and she is now doing it on the computer. My granddaughter’s school is closed and she is thrilled.
  6. You all make me smile...or quite often make me laugh.
  7. Geese, now the nursing home I am in has us on lock down because of the virus. To top it off I am being monitored because I am coughing.
  8. Ain’t that the truth. Next week I am suppose to get the top half of my left index finger removed. I guess it’s a common reaction to the medicine they gave me during surgery for blood pressure. As Roseanne Roseannadanna (spelling error most likely) always said on SNL, It’s always something!
  9. ISLuG wanted to join in the group hug, wishing you well. I haven’t been posting because I’ve been in the hospital since Dec. and in a nursing home since the end of Jan. long story short, they found a brain tumor and took it out. I was a total invalid and am now learning to move around, walk (hopefully), and think clearly. Just when you think your life is tough something tougher comes at you.
  10. I finally got back in here where I can post. Got on a plane at 6 something AM in El Paso an got into Raleigh at 6 PM on feb. 13. Same plane, three different crews and two layovers and a 1 hour stay on the tarmac in Dallas while something was fixed. Long time for an obese old lady with swelling feet and wondering about blood clots. Except for 2 days it has rained every day here, but it is beautiful here, tons of tall pine trees.
  11. Fluoride was just as wonderful as vaccinations for humankind, wonderful for health. What's wrong with our tap water are the amounts of toxins from the atombomb era. They test it and send us the results, saying the levels are safe. I am so sick of people on this show thinking it's a popularity contest, or who is the poorest, or who is the most masturbation king or queen for the audience, or who doesn't lie, or who thinks some deity will protected, etc. ; sit down and shut up, or play the your best game. I thought Tamar and Joey were going to be the worst but good gawd Lolo and Purplewhinewhine are the most ridicoulas. STFU and stop being personally insulted that other people aren't there to help you win.
  12. Where is rest of the money? I hated these three befor I knew they are also theives, I hate theives, they should never see the light of day again.
  13. I didn't like it, thought it looked like a high school home ec class project...again. I did like the tan or was it light brown one.
