Bits of life...

I thought I would give you something to look at if you didn't feel like reading...this was taken out at the strip pit area September 8, 2021.

I was going to post last night but was simply to tired to think straight.  I had been busy yesterday with the usual bits of house work...a load of laundry, vacuuming, damp mopped the kitchen, plus cooking and washing dishes.  I also pieced together a backing for my not so pretty quilt top.  I cannot find where I have shown it.  I may try to take a photo of it when I start pin basting it.  I thought I might do that after I fixed supper last night, but just did not have the energy.  So I am hoping to get to that today.


Don't you just love all the yellows of autumn?
Roger saw the pulmonolist NP Monday...she wants to try a new medicine but wanted to discuss it with his ENT first.  His scan of the spot on his lung came back as no change, which is good.  

Roger has had phone call with cardiologist.  When they did the CT scan to check the spot on the lung, they noted that he had calcification of the mitral valve.  So the pulmonologist wanted us to get in touch with the cardiologist.   We had stopped appts when the pandemic started.

The dr.  set Roger up for a nuclear stress test the middle of next month.  

Then we had to see our family NP for renewal of his everyday meds.  That was Wednesday night.  I won't say how long that took...we always have to wait, but it was bad the other night.  But she is so good to Roger and all her patients.  I could hear enough to tell that some others had some problems...we were just there for renewal of meds.  But she always checks him out.  More on this at a later date if I can remember.

We are headed to get his blood drawn to check out everything...A1c, cholesterol, etc.   What's fun is I know that the cardiologist is ordering more labs.  We will probably have to go do them next week...

It is the start of a beautiful day....I hope you all have a good one!



  1. Our life like yours has become medical chaos and it sounds like yours is about to get more chaotic and I say that because of trying to keep up with who goes where and at what time and what for. Prayers for a calm spirit and to be able to pull all this together for both of you. Anytime you get stressed out just look at that first picture that you posted up above it is absolutely spectacular!

  2. I am hoping you have to wait so long for the test is because this is not very serious? Please continue to keep me posted on him. The yellow flowers are gorgeous, are they tulips?

  3. The medical madness of doctors, tests, insurance and meds. It is enough to drive a person crazy.
    Hope all turns out well.
    Look forward to seeing the quilt.

  4. Praying that the docs will find the right meds for Roger.

  5. The golden sky is spectacular!
    Hope all goes well with the new meds!

  6. Sometimes I bet Roger feels like a lab rat with all the testing & meds changes. I feel the anxiety for BOTH of you and what you are experiencing.
    And I can certainly relate to being overwhelmed and tired. You needed to rest your mind & body.

    Beautiful images Rose. That first one is truly heaven sent.

  7. You get the specialist appointments so quickly. Here we have to wait for months.

  8. Love the nature photos - that's one arena that had never failed us of late - it keeps on growing and then blooming...

    Gentle hugs from far away...

  9. Medical appointments are often never-ending. I'll keep you both in my prayers. That sunset is beautiful!

  10. Beautiful pictures, good luck with the health problems. ❤️

  11. Hello,

    I hope all is well with Roger! Beautiful sky and love the flowers.
    Take care, enjoy your day!

  12. I can relate to being to tired to do anything. That was me last night so I have no post for today.
    All that running to doctor appointments and testing plus the sitting and waiting can be exhausting.

  13. You are one busy woman, and I'm guessing your readers can all relate to that. Add in 'medical' of any type, and the stress level goes up. Good thing you can relax a little with your sewing and quilting. You do lovely work, and I always look forward to seeing your projects. Take care.

  14. Sending you hugz, dear Rose, and wishing Roger all the best with his tests :) xx

  15. Sounds like you have got a very caring doctor. Wishing you only the very best. Pretty photos!

  16. Beautiful photographs.

    Your Doctor does sound very caring and willing to take time.
    Sending you both my good wishes.

    All the best Jan
