I Need That Mars Jelly Donut !

Squyres said the center of the rock is “like nothing we’ve ever seen before. It’s very high in sulfur, it’s very high in magnesium, it’s got twice as much manganese as we’ve ever seen in anything on Mars.”

Someone please bring me a Mars Jelly Donut ! 

Since this “rock” is very high in sulfur, magnesium, and manganese, it’s great for  severe rheumatoid arthritis ! Manganese is good for our bones too. I have systemic rheumatoid arthritis, which means it’s all over my body, not just in my knees or hands. It’s on the inside as well as the outside.

Nearing the End of 2013 Looking Forward

Well, hello ! I did have one more skin cancer to be taken out . It was a doozy. It was in my forehead, and growing roots toward my head !

It took two times going in and digging with that darn scalpel, but the good doctors got it all . Whew ! I am looking forward to a new year with no skin cancer !

Today Has Arrived !

It is Wednesday, February 1st 2012. I’m blessed to wake up and start a new day . 🙂

However, today is the day that I will be going to a dermatologist for the first time. My primary doctor told me a year ago that I should see a dermatologist. There is a sore on the outside of my right arm that has not healed in a year.

I have just kept it clean and put antibacterial cream on it, then bandage it. Now it’s oozing , and/or bleeding sometimes. Okay. That’s it. It’s time to take care of this.

So today at 10:30a.m. I will be body scanned by this new ( to me) dermatologist from the top of my head to my toenails! I will be naked ! I suppose there will be a covering over me and he will check my skin area by area. I think I’m a little nervous about this, moreso than the diagnosis!

I’m going to stay positive and be happy I am finally getting this taken care of. 🙂

It’s Friday and It’s Payday!

Yay ! It’s finally here, payday.  🙂 Scoot and I have already been out and about this morning running errands and also stopped by the pharmacy to pick up a couple of prescriptions that were waiting, and some personal items in the  http://www.cvs.com  store.

We went downtown first though. Now we are back home, waiting for Scoot’s ‘surgeon’ to stop by and pick up his check for the balance for Scoot’s surgery. It was $160.00 and well worth it.

Oh. I have another fractured rib in the left top side. But life goes on, and we do what we have to do! 🙂  Pain or no pain, I’m the one who takes care of  ‘me. ‘  It happened Tuesday morning as I rolled over in bed, yelp !   I can breathe easier than just yesterday 🙂 YES ! That’s something to smile about ! 🙂

This weekend I hope to begin packing again. Yes, I’m moving across town to the area that’s safe and oh so beautiful. where I lived in the area before. I was called by the administrator just yesterday, and she asked me for several  items of proof documents. Since it’s only  seven blocks away, Scoot and I went to my bank and  I had copies made, and we drove right over there. I’m on a wait list, but  the administrator told me it could be July or August that she will call me so I can give a 30 day notice here at my present building.

I have contacted the movers and Steve called me back just this morning. We set the wheels in motion.

Now I’m going to go make some DVD’s of some of my movies so Mom  and her companion friend, LG can see them too.

Whomever reads this, I wish you a HAPPY WEEKEND !  🙂

Scoot Takes Me Places !

Scoot is what I affectionately call my little scooter, which is a Shoprider Echo 3 Model # SL73. I will be driving Scoot to the Doc’s in about an hour, and ten will come right back home.

I feel so great at the moment, because the injection is all wore off, lol. Sounds weird, but it lasts in my body usually for a week past the time I get injected again, every Wednesday.

An update on my walking: I’m not able to walk for blocks at a time, however, I am able to walk around in my apartment and also outside  and also I’m able to catch a bus  and go to the store without Scoot if the store is close to the bus stop.

Yay for determination and small accomplishments. One. Day. At. A. Time. 🙂

I hope to visit some blogs today when I get home, if the injection does’nt zap me first !

That’s all for now. 🙂

This is the next custom art I will order for my bedroom.

What Really Happened Wednesday May 11th 2011

Yesterday began with the usual…getting out of bed and walking to the bathroom , for which I am very thankful to be walking around my apartment  once again. I showered and got ready to start my day.

Scoot was still charging , so I did’nt unplug him until it was time to leave  for my appointment. Around 8:45 a.m. Scoot and I left for the doctor’s building in back of  Bayfront hospital.

 My R.A. doctor’s nurse, Ginny, is kind enough to give me my injection every Wednesday until my other doctor gets back from his volunteer duties over in Africa , which will be  June 20th.

It did’nt take us long to drive over there, but had to be very alert and wary of dumb speeding drivers hurrying on their way to work. If  some of them keep on driving like they do, one of these days, they will end up in ER or worse.

I only had to wait for ten minutes and my name was called. Before five minutes were up, Scoot and I were on our way out of there. Super ! 🙂

I spent some time with my friend Bob after getting home, as he needed to have company. He’s used to working part-time, but is still on doctor’s orders to remain at home. He is doing well .

Last night I was over in http://www.singsnap.com  and had some fun singing and listening to others.

I took two naps during the day because  methotrexate will make one zap out whether one does not wish to sleep, or not !

Other than this, I just rested and relaxed. I so want to dance ! Those days are over though…because of my knees, and my lung capacity.

I might as well write a bit about today as long as I’m writing.  There’s not much going on, LOL ! 😀 I drove down to the post office and mailed a letter , and then  went over to Publix food market. The ride home was nice  and hot! It’s great to be out in the sunshine ! 😀

What I Did Today

Today began slowly…very slowly. I was still in my  PJ’s at 10:00a.m. as I was talking with my Mom up in Michigan. We chatted about an hour and  after putting down the phone, picked it right up again and called my friend Bob, to see if he needed any help from me today.

He did.  So I showered and got dressed, made my bed and unplugged Scoot , ready to get going. We went down to Bob’s apartment and got the money from him for the items he needed at CVS and Publix.

Then after  dropping off the purchases at his apartment, came home and ate a light lunch. Scoot and I were off again, this time on the bus to northeast shopping area. I had  Actonel to pick up…yikes, that was an $85.00 ‘co-pay.’

I drove around the shopping center for a few minutes before my bus number 38 was due to arrive behind the shopping center. The driver recognized me and was great to see “Ruth” again. Then as we were going along the familiar route back to downtown, we stopped at the buildin where I was supposed to have moved to last Fall.

One of my many friends from there , Janet, was surp[rised to see me on the bus, too. 🙂 We chatted the rest of the way downtown, until we came to our stop.  I’m going to be putting in a new application for that apartment building this week sometime. Then I will be added to the waiting list.
