Jane...Sorry your body reacted to chemo and led to you doing nothing. Sorry you need chemo monthly.

Thelma...Rain...What is that? Haven't seen that here in ages. I hope pt goes well. My pt instructed me to ice painful areas after session.

Nasfkab....Good luck with seeds. What type of seeds are you using? I am craving avocado too.

Joyce...A mani/pedi and pizza date night. I am jealous. Enjoy

I only slept 3 hours last night thanks to dehydration medication. I had energy to get up and attend pt. I told pt I trip when I walk sideways in carport. She had me go up/down steps sideways and walk sideways across pool. No pain afterwards. I came home to shower and eat lunch. I planned to go out later, but was too tired and did some housework.

Heating up here. I miss wind and fog.

Hello ladies...not much time here to spend...gotta get ready to go to PT. I think our dry spell is breaking with showers last nite and next several days until Tuesday and then the Tropical Storm may affect the area so will either tucker out on way up the coast for give us much needed rain. So sorry to hear that all of us are hurting.....yep, getting old not for sissies at all! But beats the alternative doesn't it?? emoticon
Seen this on Facebook and thought I would share:



Everyone have a great weekend and stay safe Grandmother's!! emoticon

Sharon, sorry your day was not so good. Good to hear that Hailley is improving.

Joyce, sorry about the pain. I hope it does not come back.
Love your Snoopy picture.

Tee, I am getting chemo once a month. I am not sure how longÖ
I am better today and got the avocado seeds put into water so when they sprout I can have my son come and get them.
Sorry your coworker was sick but glad she went home.
Sorry California has set new records for the virus.

I have not done much today but that often happens the day after chemo. I think my body reacts to it even if it does not go into my veins.

Take care grandmothers, this will pass.

Jane...Sorry chemo was unpleasant and you feel miserable. I thought you were finished with chemo. Good that rain cleaned the air. Nice that parents get to choose kids schooling. I hope you feel better tomorrow.

Sharon....Another good weather day is great. Sorry it isn't going to hang around. Resting is good. I hope you got out today.

Joyce....Ouch! Sorry about charlie horse. Glad massage relieve it and you can enjoy the beautiful day.

Better weather. No wind or fog. Heat starts tomorrow and lasts thru weekend. My coworker with rash took sick at work and went home before I arrived. Thank Goodness. I don't need her germs.

I felt okay today. First day I didn't ache. I have pool therapy in the morning and hope it doesn't flare joints since I need to do laundry. It didn't dawn on me that Sat is Aug 1st until I received a reminder call that I have pt on Friday (7/31). My brain still thinks it's April.

Florida, North Carolina and California set state records for coronavirus-related deaths reported in a single day. Daily new cases in late July were more than double the previous peak from April.

While headlines have focused on new hot-spot states in the South and West, top health officials are also urging preventive measures in states such as Ohio, Tennessee, Indiana and Kentucky that are seeing only subtle increases in positive cases. Leading infectious-disease expert Anthony S. Fauci warned Wednesday that these states should be vigilant to avoid the surges experienced in the South.

It is another beautiful day around 74 degrees. This morning when sitting and eating breakfast I got the worse pain or Charlie horse in my thigh I couldn't move for about 15 minutes, kept massaging it until the pain left, don't know what I did to cause it but I hope it doesn't happen again..

Good morning. It will be the last of our nice days for a little while. Humidity will be low and temps in the 80s. I would like to get out and work in the yard some. Yesterday was a complete bust and didnít get anything done. Back was healing from overdoing it on Monday. Hailley is slowly improving and will keep up with her bath treatments. Hope you have a good day.

Sharon, your day sounds lovely. Hope tomorrow is also.

Joyce, your Bible study sounds interesting. I have not figured out Zoom so I donít do it.

Karen, I am sorry to hear that the fairs have been canceled but it may be for the best.
Great you have your pill container ready to go.
Never will I ask the August skies where has last July gone. Remember that song?

Thelma, glad your brother is out of the hospital. I agree he is over doing things but it sounds like your brother has never listened to you so why do it now.
Glad you have gotten three days of PT in. Hopefully it will get better soon.
Your weed killer sounds good on the weeds and safe for the animals.
Guam is giving parents the choice of home schooling via the internet, bringing text books home to study with or actually attend classes. The students will attend two days a week and be able to conference with teachers on Friday. Over 55% of the families are home schooling.
Sorry you did not get the rain you were hoping for.
Nas, I like your SHSW comment. Now to remember it for later.

Tee, sorry your thyroid is giving you fits and the meds are not giving you relief.
Great that your knee is working better thanks to PT!
Sorry about the fires and glad the allergy spray works.
Good for you for charging for the time you spent mopping up the water.
Hope you feel better today, as well as your coworker.

I did not have a pleasant chemo treatment today. I was able to hold the chemo for a little over an hour instead of two. When I got home I have been miserable.
Weather is is good. It does rain off and on but the sun is out between the showers so the air is clean.

Going to lie down for awhile before I finish with things here.

Jane

Nasfkab...You are very thoughtful.

Where is everyone?

Karen...Do you know what happened to the mother of the missing children? Did remains belong to the children? Haven't heard anymore here due to virus news.

No flood at work today. We still don't know what happened yesterday. I have had sore throat, aches and chills the last two nights after returning home. Sore throat comes on suddenly after sunset when it is extremely foggy, windy and cold. I closed all my windows and wore sweater which is very unusual for me. Feel better after having chicken veggie soup and taking Tylenol. My coworker has rash all over her body. Clinic doctor told there there is something going around and recommended she take over the counter allergy medication.

I was up and down all night and hope it doesn't happen tonight.

Jane. Glad you enjoyed salad bar. Wonderful that group is collecting supplies for foster children. Sorry about 9 cases. Good that they are quarantined. My swelling and weight gain isn't from salt. Doctor said it is thyroid related. No swelling and lose weight when I take higher dose of meds but can't sleep.

Sharon...It is a joy to hear you had another lovely day and did things. I hope this weather pattern continues.

Joyce..Great that you can do bible study via Zoom. Enjoy the day.

Karen...Glad your pain is manageable. Sorry fairs cancelled. The Rose Parade was cancelled a few months ago bc they didn't want to put all that time and money into planning it only to have it cancelled. A Ohio official was on the news here last week and said bars are closed there. Is that true?

Thelma.. Less pain after pt is good. Happy that your brother is home and getting around. Surgeon instructed me to move after surgery since it speeds healing. She was right. I healed faster when I moved than sat around. You and your brother don't take it easy. Must be in the genes. LOL Schools won't open in CA. Thanks for recipe links. I don't have garden and not making hand sanitizer. I bought an 8 oz bottle of hand sanitizer from Sam's pharmacy months ago and hardly used since I am sanitized everywhere I go.

I woke pain free and had terrible knee pain an hour later that lasted all day. I was able to lift leg that I wouldn't budge for over a year. So pt is working. I need to remember to use gel on knees.

Sunny 70 days and 60 nights here. There will be heat wave starting Friday. It will be 120 degrees in Palm Springs on Saturday. My DD lives there. There were a lot of fire sirens this morning. The fire that flared my allergies. Nasal allergy spray worked wonders.

The work bathroom was flooded when I tried using it before leaving work. I heard an explosive noise when I was getting my lunch but didn't investigate. The water was clean. The boss's cheap mop is pathetic. It just moved water from one place to another. She wouldn't squeeze it out. I ended up cleaning room and charging her for my time.

Thank you for the baking soda, boiling water & corn meal idea, Tee emoticon When I did my first step sideways was tough but doing so for 6 years now, you help out so much, Jane like the idea of backpack & suitcases for those in foster care. No comments on your brother lovely he can do it, Thelma, I think this school issue will be tough, my daughter mentioned her son is doing a summer course online but he has just graduated High School. Stay healthy, safe & well or better SHSW less to type!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you Karen and others for the prayers for my brother. He got home Sat. evening...even got up and attended church, afterward joined others as the norm to do to grab a bite to eat, and then on the way home even had his wife to take him to store to get a box fan to use when sitting on the porch. In fact he just called while ago and he told me he even went to the office today...Good Grief!!!! Take it easy is NOT in his vocabulary!! I told him he will be right back in the hospital again and that he must have enjoyed that swab going up his nose to be tested before being admitted to hospital......the man has a head thicker than a stone wall!!!
Today was my third day of PT....so far not as stirred up in pain as last visit......that was horrible...then Sunday was not much better.

I found a couple of links that I hope will be of help...the first link is for weed killer....if you have pets you need not worry about being harmful to them...it involves white vinegar, dish liquid, and Epsom salt. I have used it many times:
myheavenlyrecipes.com/3-ingr
edient-wee
d-killer-recipe/


The next link is for homemade hand sanitizer. It is crazy what is asked for this stuff now compared to before COVID came on the scene. Today I found the Aloe Gel but not the alcohol...will try more stores when I get up to my home town:



www.healthline.com/health/ho
w-to-make-
hand-sanitizer#ingredients



The phone has rung off the hook since we got home...either stupid telemarketers or neighbors wanting DH to do something for them.....GEEZ LOUISE!!!...and we can't even go somewhere to get away from them!!...LOL
The county here will not be opening this fall....homeschooling it will be until they deem it safe to open. I feel they are making the right call but internet issues in rural area as ours is an issue for many. The neighbor man said his wife was told that many kids did not do thier studies but yet the school promoted them to the next grade. I do know if there were children to do their homework from my ISP they would be left in the dust as it is way to slow for them. Not enough speed to do video;s and takes too long for the page to load up

Well long day here so gonna take my nightly meds and settle down for the night. Today not as hot as has been and next few days will be the same but the rain we had hoped the cold front would bring fizzled out and left us as the say "High & Dry"

It is nice to see so many Grandmas posting. Thelma prayers your brother will get out of hospital.

Our Governor has ordered county fairs limited to Jr. Fair only. Many fair boards have put lots of time & money into getting the fairs ready for the covid safety policy so they are not happy about it My county is now 6th out of 88 counties having most virus cases per capita. The big question now is should kids attend schools?

My pain has been pretty manageable. I have my pill container ready for August! Where is the month of July going so fast.? I cannot keep up with it!

Good morning. It is going to be another lovely day and hope to get outside to do some work. It was a great day yesterday. I did 4 loads of laundry and a few other small projects around the house. I walked about 10 minutes and had a total of 4,116 steps for the day. It was a lovely 82 with low humidity. Hope you all have a great day today.

Sharon, sounds like you and Hailley had a good quiet day yesterday. That is needed sometimes.

Nas, I find walking backwards is okay but walking sideways is a bit of a challenge. I just started and am doing it in the hall where I can use the walls to catch my balance if things go awry.

Tee, I am not sure if my son is selling avocados or just supplying the family. His wife has a lot of siblings as well as aunts and uncles.
Sorry the pool workout was so hard. Probably the salt in the pizza caused water retention.
Glad you are seeing a specialist. Great that you will see the better of the two. We have one hand specialist on Guam. Not sure what will happen when he retires.
The storm in Texas was in the southern part near Mexico and our other member is in the Houston area.

Guam had 9 new cases reported Monday. Seven were from people who flew in from the mainland. All are in quarantine or the hospital at this time.
I had lunch with my Tuesday friends at the Nikko Hotel. It was a buffet and set up where we could see the food but an employee put it on our plates and then gave use the plates on a tray. Because I use a cane someone took my tray to our table. In the past I have left my cane at the table but I am not ready to do that yet.
We have a group that helps children in the foster care program. Right now they are putting together 350 backpacks and supplies for the next school year and are asking for donations. The children are also provided with suitcases when they have to move from where they are. Seeing pictures of children carrying trashbags with their personal belongings in them into a foster home is heartbreaking.

Hope you all have a great day.

Jane

Jane...Great glasses arrived, Wendy salad and gas station sanitizer. Will your son sell avocados? They are popular and in demand here along with avocado oil.

Sharon...Good to hear about cooler temperatures and less humidity. Enjoy the day.

Nasfkab....I found article that boiling water kills weeds. Not sure if it will destroy plants too. Here's article with pictures:

That once in a month slice of pizza caused me to gain 2 lbs and I skipped lunch. Crazy! I went to pool pt today. The workout was tough and I hurt afterwards. My feet, ankles and legs are swollen. I didn't walk street due to pain. Plus I did enough for the day. I have appointment thru Sept. I am in terrible shape and need them.

I phoned GP's office about giving me 2 hand specialist referrals. The office didn't know about first referral and couldn't find it in my records. They instructed me to see 2nd specialist. I contacted my nurse friend that works at hospital. She told me 2nd doctor was the best. So, I will make appointment to see him.

I've had vision problems all day which I hope subside since last thing I need is to see another doctor.

I knew about Texas and Hawaii storms. Hope member that lives in Texas is okay.

It is a good morning with sun coming up and cooler temps with lower humidity. It will be a good day. Yesterday was a take it easy and enjoy the day kind of day. I read a lot and watched some shows that I had taped. I felt pretty good and Hailley and I just took it slow. Today I need to get with it and get some things done. Hope you all have a good day.

Tee, since my son retired he is expanding his farm. The family really likes avocados so that is something he is expanding. He is 53 years old so in ten years there will be a lot more avocados. His daughters will get the farm when he is gone.
Great that the manager carried your groceries up the stair. Sounds like you help a lot of people in your apartment building.
You do not want the dislocated area to start growing that way so I suggest you get it taken care of soon even if the hospital was slow.

Sharon, good for Marshall to get your lawn mowed.
Sorry it has been so hot for you. It is gray and rainy here so the temperature is in the high 70ís to mid 80ís and the humidity is 89%. We often have the humidity in the 90ís as well as the temperatures in the 90ís.

Nas, I hope your terrace is nice with lots of plants. The blessing you have is there are people around you so you are not completely alone.

Tee, I am so glad you have lost and fit into your swimsuit! A slice of pizza once in a while cannot be too bad.
Wonderful that you are getting back into the pool. I know you have missed it.

I got a call this morning that my glasses have arrived so I went down to get them this afternoon. Afterward I stopped at Wendyís and got the Strawberry Salad and then at Mobil and got $10. gas so I could get the had sanitizer they are giving out. I got a bit more walking in because there were no handicapped spaces at the clinic and I had to walk a bit farther. I am thankful it was not raining because we are having a lot of cloud cover and rain off and on for the next few days.
I just heard that Texas has has a hurricane as well as Hawaii has one going over right now. I knew about the Hawaii one but not the Texas one.

Stay safe and well grandmotherís!

Jane

Sharon.....Nice that you took time to do computer maintenance and mowed lawn looks good.

Naskfab...Wow about you not leaving apartment for months.

My computer runs slow and I don't know why. It takes a while for it to get to point where I can view email, etc. My hard drive is almost empty. I emptied cache and deleted files, etc. No viruses or malware either. I have trouble with mouse sometimes too and may need to take it to repair to see something can be done to make it faster.

I did a few things around my apt and walked before dinner. Returned home to neighbor bringing pizza which I wasn't going to eat since I lost a pound, but gave in and ate bc I have had pizza in months and am tired of eating chicken.

I fit into bathing suit. emoticon Found bag to hold items I need to bring to pool pt too. Bag is packed so I don't have to rush in the morning. I have been walking forward, backwards and sideways daily to get ready for pool. Forward and backwards is okay. Sideway causes my hips and legs to ache. I am looking forward to be in pool and seeing swim buddy.

Stay well and safe.

Good morning. I didnít make it here yesterday. I did some computer maintenance and just didnít feel like being on the computer. I rested and read most of the day. It was so humid and hot that I felt like not moving. Today we are supposed to cool down and the dew point is supposed to drop and maybe I can open up the windows. I will feel much better then. Marshall did come and mow yesterday and I thought it was just too warm for him to be doing that but he wanted to get it done for me so it looks nice again. Hope you all have a good day today.

Jane....Guam is good about taking temperature and person's name. My doctor/dentist take temperature and record next to my name. Stores, etc don't. Nursery told us about needing male/female tree to produce fruit. My friend had a male tree and planted female next to it. He got tired of waiting for avocados and bought/planted a tree that produces. It produced fruit right away. Maybe this is the type your son has. Ebooks are checked out for 2-3 weeks depending on library. I put other ebook that arrived on delay for 14 days. Library will give book to next person on list and then to me. I should be finished book I am reading by than.

Joyce...Your sign made me smile. I needed that. Hope you had nice day.

Thelma....Sorry that pt hurt and your brother is in hospital. I will keep him in my prayers. I love that duster. Used it on window screen to remove dust from fireworks. I like using it on my furniture since faster than using a cloth. Glad you are reading and watching nature.

Nasfkab.....New cases are due to 4th of July weekend. Good that you don't need test.

I didn't do much due to insomnia. I fell asleep in the morning. Argh! Gotta get on normal schedule since pool pt early on Monday. Store had produce. Apt manager carried my grocery bag to my door. I held her ladder while she replaced outdoor light bulbs Holding the ladder was easier than carrying bag.

I received letter from hospital radiologist and referral to hand specialist yesterday. Xray report indicates dislocation. Referral says urgent. I don't think so since it took hospital 11 days to notify me.

Joyce, love the picture!

Thelma, I am sorry to hear your brother is back in the hospital! Yes, prayers going up.
PT that made your muscles cramp does not sound good. Hope it does not happen again.
I have never canned on my own. I use to help my mom but it is not something that has been done here.
Sorry about the heat and humidity.

Nas, the testing does help spot someone who may be spreading the virus but not aware they are sick.

I attended church this morning. We get our temperature taken and sign in so if someone comes down with the virus a few days later public health knows who to call. If that happened I would get the test.
On the way to church I went by about 10 Rescue vehicles! They were at a place that is a ancient Chamorro village and near the ocean that sometimes is really dangerous. They were gone when I came home.
I ended up signing until Rose got to the service. There was a first time visitor who has been taking sign classes. It would be good to have another person to help out.
It has been a gray wet day today. That also means the humidity was high.

Stay well and careful grandmotherís.

Jane

Thank you for your post on avocado trees being male & female, Tee, increase of numbers is not due to testing but that IS the actual FAKE NEWS, feel better soon. Stay careful, Jane, I feel no reason to get tested often common sense is needed. emoticon for all you need them, stay healthy, safe & well.

Hello ladies, I have been busy going to PT and trying to keep up with watering plants as it had been so very hot and dry. We got a very nice rain shower the other night so did not have to water next day My 2nd PT got things stirred up and had to take a muscle relaxer and that wiped me out when I got home...woke up and not as bad but WOW I was crying UNCLE!
Today did a speed-clean thru house while green beans in canner. Got 13 qts....well not actual qts....about 1/2 cup short of a quart with those canning jars that you buy spaghetti sauce in.
I used those swifter dusters to clean....never used them before and I did not think they would be as good as a dust cloth.....well changed my mind....got done much faster and did gather up the dust.....heck no one to see it anyway but myself and DH....and I always said he could walk thru dirt up to his butt and never would mind.....me on the other hand USED to have everything dust free and everything in it's place....the way my body reacts to working now I have changed my mind on that. Spend more time during day to just read or watch all the animals that pass thru my yard.
The heat to return for a few days then in upper 80's later in the week
Can't keep eyes open much more so head on back to bed here soon. Everyone have a good & safe weekend

If you would please keep my brother in prayers....back in hospital.....filled with fluids and now back on dialysis

Nas, I am sure avocados would grow in Bangladesh as they do here once they get planted.

Sharon, sorry it was too hot and humid to get outside. I hope it is cooler today for you.

Joyce, what an experience! I am so glad you and your dog are safe.

Tee, since my son already has avocado trees on his property there should be no problem with the seeds I have. I will mention to him what you said about the trees as I would hate to see him cut down a tree that was not bearing fruit.
Sorry your allergies are still cutting up but good that you did get out for a walk.
I am sorry to hear about the deaths due to the virus. Yes, masks and distancing does seem to be working when people are doing that.
How long can you keep an ebook?
Hope you get the produce you want.

Guam is in P-Core 3 which means more places are open but masks are required as well as social distancing. They really want to open the island to tourist but will be selective as to where the tourist come from.
We have gotten more positive cases because we have around 300 people tested a couple of times a week.
I do not plan to get tested unless I know that I have been exposed. Our Public Health is asking people who are positive where they have been and who they have been around.
When I go to church I get my temperature taken and sign in with the temperature recorded. This would be used if someone does end up with the virus a day or two later.

Do stay safe grandmothers.

Jane

Jane...Great about closing account, paying bill and free hand sanitizer. Gardening center told us need a male and female avocado plant to get fruit unless purchase a specific type. My friend's seed has been growing for 10 years and no fruit.

Sharon...Sorry it is too hot for you to go out and Marshall to mow lawn.

Joyce....Bear! I am glad bear was afraid and fled and you and Kayla are safe.

Nasfkab...Nice of you to see elephants. Safari park sound like a place my DD would go with her boys.

I did nothing today due to allergies. That wasn't my plan, but I couldn't stop sneezing, coughing or stay awake when the wind blew. I walked in the neighborhood before sunset which wasn't a problem. Allergies returned when I was in my apt eating dinner. I wonder if my symptoms have to do with oil refinery burning stuff since I didn't have symptoms while walking.

Over 3,000 new cases and 65 deaths today. They said it is due to more people being tested.. What about people that haven't been tested? None of my relatives, friends, coworkers, neighbors have been tested. Governor asked people to continue wearing masks and distancing since it is working.

I put holds on ebooks from two libraries and keep getting ebooks I didn't hold. I got one book from County Library last week and one from LA library today. Either there isn't nothing to read or too much. No middle ground.

I hope to get out tomorrow to buy produce.

Good evening all, Kayla and I had a bit of an experience: Kayla and I ran into our first bear. We were walking (around 4:30) down Munsel Creek Loop near 35th street and 5 feet in front of us coming up from the bushes and crossing the street is this bear, I stopped, Kayla did nothing, the bear looked in our direction then ran across the street into the bushes, Kayla and I turned around and headed home, decided I didn't want to risk the bear may change his mind and not be afraid of us. I do carry pepper spray but at the moment I just kinda froze.

I had hopes of getting out early before it got too hot but at 6 this morning the temperature is 75 nd the dewpoint is 70. That is pretty stifling. I just might not go out. I told Marshall not to mow today because it will be around 90 with the dewpoints in the 70s which is just way to hot for him to be out there mowing. I will find plenty of things to do inside today. I am glad I got the bird baths cleaned and filled and the squirrel and bird feeders cleaned and filled yesterday so that is done. They really feed when it is hot and unsettled out. I did walk about 12 minutes yesterday and had a total of 3,503 steps for the day. I will do better today. Hope you all have a really great day.

Sharon, you are so kind to the animals and birds around you. Sorry Hailley is not doing as well as you thought.
Sounds like you were really busy yesterday.

Nas, I just want to get them started so my son knows where the plants/trees are when he gets them.

Tee, thank you for the information about the potassium contents of avocados and bananas.
Right now I do not have any toothpicks so thought putting them in an individual container would work. It does take at least five years before the trees start producing.
Sorry your joints are giving you problems so walking is hard.

Today I closed the account and got the money from the account I thought I closed back in November. Then I paid my solid waste bill. Finally I stopped at the gas station, got ten in gas and a bottle of hand sanitizer that they are giving if the customer buys at least five. I plan to go back tomorrow and get another ten and bottle of sanitizer. These bottles can be attached to my purse strap so I have it when I am out and about.

Stay safe and well everyone.

Jane

Jane...I looked up potassium in an avocado and banana. Avocado contains over 800 mg of potassium. A banana contains 400 mg. Avocado is extremely fattening and high in potassium which is why I only eat 1/4 daily. I eat half of a banana daily. What seed are you planting? Avocado? We put 3-4 toothpicks half way up avocado pit and place in glass of water so bottom of pit is immersed. My friend that does this has several trees but no fruit. Good thing you found bill.

Sharon....Wonderful that cooling and open windows feels great. I hope you were able to tend to outside. Sorry Hailley's skin isn't good.

Nasfkab....Sorry sprouting seeds didn't work. I place packet seeds on wet paper towel or napkin in clear plastic glass, cover with plastic wrap and place in window until sprouted. Then transfer to container with soil. There are several types of potato salad here. One made with oil, etc. Another with mayo. I dislike potato salad and don't eat.

Thanks for reminding me to phone GP's office for x-ray result Jane. I am loving cool nights/morning and don't want to get out of bed. Joints aching especially knees. I didn't walk street after work since my knees/legs hurt from grocery shopping. It was their delivery day and both stores were empty which I think is due to no stock people and shipment sitting in aisles.

That's it from here. I am tired and going to read in bed before turning off light.

Good morning. It is a lovely cool morning with low dew points and the windows are open and it feels wonderful. Today I hope to get a few things done outside in the morning before the weather changes. We have storms, mid 90s and dew points in the mid 70s moving in so want to get the squirrel, bird feeders and bird baths all cleaned and filled. Yesterday I only walked for 6 minutes but was active all day so ended up with 3,897 steps for the day. I made a nice batch of potato salad and some egg salad. I would like to do better today and get outside early. Hailley is not as good a I thought she was so we are really working on her. Hope to have it on the run again but next week. It is a never ending battle. Well, I sure hope you all have a great day.

Sharon, nice the rain waters your plants so you do not need to.
Sorry about the fire at the recycling place, yuck!!!
I am so glad to hear that you got new oxygen tank and find breathing easier.
Sorry about Hailleyís skin. Good that you have it under control at least most of the time.

Tee, when I have an abundance of avocados like now I usually have one a day as I need to watch my potassium intake. I do not eat a banana or potato if I have an avocado. After what happened a little over a year ago I do try to be careful.
Sorry about the telemarketers. What a pain. I suggest you call the GPís office back and have them clarify what the x-ray showed. Blame it on forgetfulness but get the information.
Sorry to hear that CA has so many virus cases. We got three yesterday. Two were at Naval hospital, non kept in a hospital.

Nas, I am planting the seeds in containers to give to my son so he can grow some more trees.

I have not done much today. I did pay my VISA on line and finally found the bill so I can pay the Solid Waste. I will have to go to the bank to do that so will do it tomorrow.

Take care,

Jane

Jane.....Groceries and church. Wow! Avocado and crackers are good. Avocado toast is popular breakfast and snack in CA. Avocados can be skinned, halved or sliced and frozen.
I saw frozen ones at Costco and looked up freezing them on internet. Guam does good job with salad bar.

Sharon...Sorry fire and smoke makes it impossible to open windows. Good that new oxygen tank makes difference and you can attend to Hailley's bad skin spots. There was fire here last night that caused respiratory problems too.

I think eating early dinner and reading in bed helped me sleep last night. I woke at 7 am to go potty, took thyroid med and went back to bed. Phone call from GP at 7:30 am got me up again. A lab was high and needs attention. Telemarketing calls followed. GP's office called again at 9 am to inform me wrist xray showed something and I need to see hand specialist. I don't recall what xray showed because I needed to get off phone since I had telephone appointment with pancreas specialist. No test results on my electronic records. Pancreas specialist called next. She explained everything and will do MRI in Nov to determine if I need more tests. Telemarketers continue to call.

Ca has the most virus cases of any state. We surpassed New York. 12,807 positive and 115 deaths yesterday.

Cloudy, windy and cool on Ca coast. I slept with blanket and windows open.

Good morning. It will be warmer today but still lower humidity. I was happy with the rain and not having to go out and water. I am finally able to open my windows and canít because one of the recycle locations had a fire in their stockpile and the smoke is terrible. It even gets into the house with the windows closed. I am going to try to open for a little this morning and see if it is okay. I finally got a new oxygen tank and it has already made a big difference. He didnít get her till almost 5 yesterday but I was so glad when he changed my tank. Hope today will show an improvement in my walking and activity level. I a still short of breath but not oxygen deprived short of breath and there is a big difference. Hailley looks so good with her hair cut and now I can see the bad spots on her skin and work on them. I donít think we will ever get rid of her problem but maybe just maintain. Hoping that everyone has a great day. I walked 10 minutes and had a total of 3,112 steps yesterday.

Sharon, glad to hear you did not have to water the plants and there was not a storm. Keep up the walking.

Karen, I think we all struggle about eating fruit and veggies.

Nas, walking sideways could be a challenge. I may try it.

Tee, the salad bars have just opened. Guam has just gone to level 3 for the pandemic and I think that helped. We do not touch the plate or food until the waitstaff hands it to us but we can see it to make a choice. There is a big sheet of plexiglass between the food and us.
Hope you see an improvement within a few days of using the gel four times daily.
Sorry to hear your cholesterol is up. Since you have not been able to exercise in the pool it may have contributed to the rise in cholesterol. Hope the pool therapy helps reduce the cholesterol.
Hope you woke up for your appointment. I know what you mean about not sleeping well before an important medical appointment.

I got a few groceries this morning which included crackers to go with the avocados. The avocados are a real treat and much large than those from the states.
I did make it to church this evening. We have been having a study on tithing and giving from a biblical view point for a few weeks. Interesting what Jesus said about giving even more than the tithe and also giving our time.

Stay safe and well.

Jane

Jane....Happy Liberation Day! You have salad bars. Wow! It was first thing to go in the states. Glad Ruby's serve was good.

Sharon...Wonderful pulmonary tests were the same. I hope increase and new tank helps and Hailley's skin is better.

Karen...Great that you got curb pick up, did laundry and changed bed. I do that on Saturday and am wiped afterwards. Enjoy salad and tomato.

Nasfkab...Walking anywhere is good. Walking forward, backwards and sideways strengthens all the leg muscles and helps with balance.

Discovered today that only supposed to use Voltaren gel on hand, wrist, elbow, foot, ankle and knees. Gel relieves joint pain, improves mobility and reduces stiffness. Direction state to use 4xs daily for 21 days. I was only using when I had pain, but switched to using 4xs daily.

I know virus numbers are up but don't know exact number. Governor opened salons and massages parlors for outdoor business. No way I would have outdoor massage or haircut outside. Too windy here.

My GP messaged me that my cholesterol is high and needs addressing. She means cholesterol medication, which I can't take due to leg pain, memory problems, etc. I changed my diet, gave up junk food, snacks at night and started walking which I hope decreases level when I have labs in August. I considered going vegetarian but last time I tried it, I was starving and gave up.

I called pool therapy this morning. Waited until they returned call and was late for work. I have appointment for evaluation and pool therapy on Monday.

I have telephone visit with pancreatic doctor first thing in the morning and nervous. I haven't met her and dislike not consulting in person. Plus I am worried about not waking up in time for her call. Wish me luck.

I got up a lot during the night to go potty and am tired. Hope I sleep tonight. I usually am anxious before medical appointments and toss and turn all night.

I did a curbside pickup at Walmart today. Have a load of laundry in the dryer & changed my bedding. That may be it for today. I must eat more of those fruits & veggies for supper. My tomatoes will be ripe in a few days but I bought two roma tomato for todays salad.

Hope it is a good day for everyone.

Good morning on this cloudy day. We had some rain last night but no storm. That is nice. I donít know how much rain but I wonít have to water. I had my pulmonary breathing tests and walk yesterday and they looked the same as the last time so he was very happy. He did up my oxygen intake and that will be good. Not to get a working tank today and I should be doing good again. I am positive this tank is not working right. Hailley gets her hair cut today and I am glad because then I can always see how her skin is and she does so much better when it is really short. I did do the 6 minute walk test and had a total of 3,063 steps for yesterday. Hope you all have a really good day.

Tee, what a mess when people do not care. If people will obey the quarantine then I hope your governor does that.
I hope the Voltaren gel works for you and so nice the clerk was willing to share the information.
I agree that we need to protect those with health issues and if wearing a mask will do that then yes we should wear a mask.
My son put something on FB, that wearing a mask was like using a condom. If you think wearing a condom is good then why not a mask?

Sharon, glad you are going to enjoy the rain and cooler weather.
Hope you get the oxygen levels figured out.

Karen, glad you have alternatives to getting things if the virus is bad in your area.

Nas, I have had techs whom I did not understand and was not happy with them.

I had lunch at Ruby Tuesday with my Tuesday lunchers. They have the salad bar but one of the employees puts the food on your plate that you ask for. At the end I asked for one dipper of Ranch Dressing and she did a fine job.

Today is the 76th celebration of America returning to Guam during WWII. From the time of the first landing until the Japanese surrendered 21 days later. There were some fighting for months afterward but the Chamorro people were free from the oppression they had received.

Thelma....3.7 oz is 100 grams....That is size I got. Walgreen sells 3.7 oz for $20.99 I found a $2 manufacturer's coupon for 3.7 ozs. A $1 manufacturer's coupon for 1.7 oz which is 50 grams. CVS has limited stock of 1.7 oz. Larger size is out of stock. Voltaren gel is worth every penny and sold out at most places. Costco sold out a month ago and can't get any more. Walgreen had limited stock of both sizes. I put some on my back and leg when I returned from Costco because the pain was so bad I couldn't stand and pain gone. The $66 price you found is probably for rx. I paid $36 for rx with insurance.

Karen....Sorry it didn't rain. I hope rain arrives soon and cools off things. Good luck getting Voltaren gel. It is sold out at most pharmacies. CVS has limited supply of 1.7 oz. Need to use pea size amount on painful areas 4x daily for 21 days.

Nasfkab.....Glad router is fixed. My pain has decreased. Sad there are selfish people.

I went to dentist for crown fitting. Told him about the pain I had after root canal. So, he gave me a lot of injections to numb area. I have temporary crown and get permanent in two weeks. I went to two grocery stores on way home to pick up a few things. Had lunch and rested when I got home.

I called therapy place and got answering machine. Didn't leave message because I planned to drive to therapy facility and Costco. I will call again today. Pool therapy facility has several pools and looks nice.

I didn't walk on street since I hurt and did enough walking rest of day. Spoke to 85 yr old friend. She hasn't been in a church or store since March. She injured her foot and can't walk. Gave up quilting for cooking, reading and drinking wine and gained weight.

Heading to bed since work today.
