I still have several stories to share with you from our trip to Alabama and Georgia a couple of weeks ago but they are going to require quite a bit of time to write and to sort through all the photographs to decide which ones to use. I’ve been busy working on trying to get […]

Yesterday I had an appointment with my civilian primary care doctor for a routine checkup and to review some lab work I had done last week. After reviewing everything from the labs and checking my heart and blood pressure, she says I’m in darned good shape for a fat old guy. All of my numbers; […]

Yesterday was a cold, windy day, it was cold last night, and today is starting out cold. But the weatherman does say that things are going to start warming up this afternoon sometime. I hope so, because I’m about to launch into an epic snivel, and trust me, none of us wants that to happen. […]

Yesterday was another busy day for us. We started out by taking Beverly to a couple of doctors’ appointments. Then we stopped at a nursery to look at citrus trees because Terry wants to plant a lemon and a lime tree in our yard. This was pretty much a fact-finding mission, just to get an […]

Yesterday Terry was supposed to have her first appointment for the hyperbaric oxygen therapy to hopefully help remedy the problems she has been suffering from due to the intense radiation she received when she had cancer years ago. We were told there would be 40 treatments, five days a week for anywhere from 90 minutes […]

Thank you everybody who emailed or posted comments wishing Terry good luck with the hyperbaric oxygen therapy I wrote about in yesterday’s blog. As it turns out, that doesn’t start yet. We had an appointment with the facility yesterday, and I thought that’s when they would do the treatment, but I was wrong. It was […]

Friday started out with another of the spinal decompression treatments that I described in my blog entry It’s Not What It Looks Like a couple of days ago. The treatments take about 15 minutes, and after the two I’ve had so far I can feel a certain amount of improved flexibility and a bit less […]

As I said before, I have been switching most of my health care away from the Veterans Administration and onto private sector healthcare providers now that I have Medicare and a good supplemental plan. After years of asking, and sometimes almost begging, I finally gave up on the VA healthcare system ever giving me an […]

We were up early yesterday morning because I had an appointment at the VA Medical Center in Daytona Beach for something called a field of vision test. I have rather large and abnormally shaped eyes, and every time I get an eye exam, when they do a pressure test they tell me they think I […]

Definition of potpourri – 1: a mixture of flowers, herbs, and spices that is usually kept in a jar and used for scent. 2: a miscellaneous collection. The second definition above pretty much describes today’s blog. This is another post in a collection of miscellaneous thoughts and info that I’m sharing because I really don’t […]
