Saturday Update

It is raining.  Again.  But with a promise of sun tomorrow.  I hope.

***paragraph deleted***

Thursday was a Sister Carole day, taking her for some follow-ups and such.  Well follow-up is wrong.  Pre-screening I guess it was, to determine if some of her surgery can now be reversed.  The day started at 5AM and a long drive in the rain in the dark.  And an ever increasing series of uncomfortable waiting room chairs.  But my back survived.  Maybe it wouldn't have been so tight if not for that Zumba class, eh?  But ouch.  And Carole got very good news indeed in that her innerds appear to be leak free and healed up and nothing should keep the reversal surgery from taking place.  I know she doesn't want to go through an operation again, but has to do it to get rid of that ostomy bag.  And her deductibles are paid for the year!

My Uncle Ted had a heart attack while mowing his grass this week.  He is doing well after having a stint put in and cousin Dave is on high alert.

I'm taking a few pics at work friend Kathy's wedding this evening, so hopefully those will go well.  She is just having a small, family only ceremony (except for me and my camera).   And then taking the Babygirl out for a late birthday pressie -- casino night.  We went to Vegas on her 21st.  It seems like last week.  But she turned 30 this year so thought we would live it up a bit.  I have about $40 to take, which will last all of 20 seconds I'm sure.

And now I think it is time for a drugstore run and maybe a new pair of shoes!

Glad the news is good on Carole, but sorry to hear about your uncle Ted, those stints seem to work though. Have a good day and fun evening.

Sounds like one strange set of letters. Obama's "Green Jobs Czar" has plenty of letter-writing time these days. Just saying...
