got some exciting news I was talking with my Lymphedema Occupational Therapist yesterday we were just talking about things when she told me she may be able
to get me a job as a afterschool secretary her Mother works for the school system. I told her if she could that would be nice and cool soooooooo I’ll find out soon if I would get the job.
Happy Halloween Everyone.
I made my suckers for the trick-or-treaters the other day. I got 4 bags of suckers this year had a good deal at the store. Over the weekend got to spend time with my nieces my niece Melodie is officially taller than me now. She is growing like a weed she was one happy kid this weekend she got to go to a Harry Potter party downtown with a friend and my sister and brother in law went with. Her sisters stayed with my mom.
I wish this month was a good month but it wasn’t can’t wait till it’s over. A couple days ago I found out my old neighbor Judy we kept in touch for many years when I left my other Apartment passed away about a month ago her son was kind enough to let me know. He wrote to me told me. And in the beginning of this month found out my mom best friend had stage 4 cancer. They where going to do a benefit for her this weekend her insurance was running out so they wanted to raise some money to help pay for the treatment. They stopped thr treatment a couple days ago they had hospice came I feel bad for my mom she was going to go down there when she found out they didn’t say anything to use kinda got us off guard because it took her so fast she passed away the other night. I found out yesterday. She had stage 4 lung cancer she was doing good with treatment but she broke a bone when that happened the cancer spread fast took everyone off guard. So not the best month for me they are both out of pain and I am sure my grandmother is there welcoming them home in heaven. Have a good day all
We had a little Birthday Party for my nephew Justin today he is 14 now. Wasn’t too bad of a day a little chilly welcome fall but other then that it was nice. I have to go back to the dentist Monday the tooth they chipped when they pulled the one next to it has to be pulled now NOT Happy they should cap it but they want to pull it and 2 more UGH and I am finally over the sinus infection and ear infection still have a cough but a lot better. Housing is coming out can’t believe my lease is up already been here 9 years been on housing for I think 17 or 10 years now. Time flies hope everyone has a good weekend
Went to doctor for second opinion on uterus prolapse Eventually I’ll need surgery but for right now I’m good I just have to work on my lymphedema and lose some weight before I can have the surgery they said they can do it the robotic way. She didn’t tell me I couldn’t have the surgery now but she wants to make sure I’m in Better Health and Fitness before I have surgery because it is a major surgery which I understand now that I know what’s going on and I’m not afraid that I’m going to have my uterus fall on me I will get back to feeling better and working on myself so I can have the surgery As long as I’m comfortable and not in pain or anything I’ll be fine for now. I like this doctor and feel comfortable with her. She wants me to try some more pessaries but I’m kind of through with that she said my uterus is coming out but I don’t have to baby it and not freak out it will come out but not out out so as long as I’m okay and I’m not in a lot of pain and it doesn’t seem to bother me so much she said just work on myself and when I’m ready and she feels I’m ready they will do the surgery and they will remove the uterus and they’ll fix my hernia too.
My mom’s cat has nine lives she’s used probably seven of them already she actually made a full recovery and she’s doing great my mother did have to put her down. 🙂
What a wet wet wet day. You know the saying April showers bring May flowers well you can say May Showers bring June Flowers LOL. My sister Sarah Graduated last week she just has to do a state test to get her licenses to get her certificate to practice and be a counselor She wants to get her master but we will see. Her sister in law had her baby Grayson is his name cute little peanut haven’t met him yet just pictures and in less then 2 weeks going to my cousin Megan’s baby shower. Next week I go back to the dentist get some more teeth pulled and worked on FUN NOT. And I got in to a specialist for a second opinion on my Uterus prolapse see what she could do the other doctor did a couple things but it didn’t work so I was told to watch it he doesn’t want to do surgery because of my lymphedema but it going to happen sooner or later so I going to see another doctor see if they can do something. Ever since he messed around I’ve been feeling it more doesn’t bug me just feels ODD. Otherwise I am doing ok. My mom almost put her cat down this weekend her cat has fluid in her lungs and a blood clot in her foot she couldn’t walk on her leg it was cold to the touch. My mom didn’t want to give up on her so they give her some pills told her they want to see her Saturday and then deiced to do something and for about a week she just laid and didn’t do much and this weekend she did a 360 and is doing great eating walking around playing even the vet was shocked so this cat his out smarted us again and probably used up 7 of her 9 lives LOL. Got a surprised here I’ve been here almost 9 years and not once a bird tried to make a nest on our lamp post well last week got a nice surprise we have a Robin that has decided she likes my neighbors lamp post and she been sitting on her nest and her mate been feeding her so I think soon we will be hearing little baby birds. Kind of felt bad for Mr. Robin today another Robin decided he wanted to take over their nest they had a huge fight on my patio but it looks like he give in and Mr. Robin came out good he does look a little messed up but he looks good for fighting they get nasty when they fight. Made sure Mrs. Robin was ok she is just fine. Have a nice week all and stay dry
Had a nice weekend got to go to the Midwest Horse Fair with my nieces and sister got to enjoy the hotel pool only odd thing was the water was salt water but overall it was nice. I got some cute little onesies for my cousin baby shower. My niece Addison picked out a cute little Dream Catcher for her sister Melodie. Melodie didn’t go this year she wanted to stay home and go to her best friends Birthday Slumber Party. I didn’t mind she is getting older she needs independence. It was cute when we got home Addison showed Melodie the Dream Catcher and Melodie was very happy and grateful. Have a good week all.
Midwest Horse Fair
Not sure what is going on with surgery they haven’t contacted me about it and when I asked they don’t seem to be in a hurry I did get a hold of my doctor so I am on the clear to go to the Horse Fair and to swim in the pool I am sure I’ll hear about things next week. My niece Melodie has decided not to go this year her best friend is having a slumber party this weekend and she really wanted to go so she is staying home. I got tickets for the fair at Farm and Fleet saved some money I got my sister and her daughter and my mom one my sister will pay me tomorrow for her and her daughter and I talked with my mom I subtracted the ticket off my half of the hotel so I don’t owe her as much. She agreed so tomorrow after my dentist appt. we are on are way. I finally have a plan with my dentist tomorrow I get some fillings and next week I have to get a couple pulled sucks but they are broken and can’t be save and I am getting a parcel for the 2 in the front I am just grateful for that. Got everything packed for tomorrow got some snacks for us and just going to make some sandwiches tonight. My animals are all taken care of. So see everyone next week.
Update biopsy they took when they did the pap smear came back clean no cancer now I have to wait for him to call me make appointment for surgery my mom was right sounds like they’re going to remove all my female parts besides the uterus that is falling and they will put a bladder sling in.
Sorry I haven’t been on here much. A lot has been going on I finally got in to see my OBGYN docctor yesterday I had my sister come with me because well I didn’t want to be alone and this was my first real fully appointment with the OBGYN. I never had a thoroughly Pep smear and because I am getting older and I found out I had cyst in my ovaries I needed to get checked out. My last appointment was over 3 years ago and they never did get to do everything so I was a little nervous too…….. it was NOTHING another worse nightmares off my list that I’ve done. I am sooooooooooooooo glad I went to this appointment found out while I was having my Pep smear done I have a prolapse uterus my uterus is falling out its almost completely out EWWWWWW when she went to do the pep smear she says HELLO There uterus LOL and told me well I got good news and bad news good news is I don’t have to worry about my crazy periods bad news is my uterus is almost completely out so I have to have surgery to remove it and they are taking my fallopian tubes. And the other bad news is I won’t be able to bear children they are not so far that I know taking my ovaries out so I can produce eggs I just won’t have my period anymore or get PG I have no uterus and tubes. Sooooo I am still numb and I don’t know how to feel because I kinda always knew my chances where slim because I am getting older will be 40 this year. I think it will hit me hard when I get it done. They will call me back next week for the test results of the Pep smear and make appointment to meet the doctor that is doing the surgery and he will look at me and tell me what they will do. I am hoping I can go to the Midwest Horse Fair but now I am up in the air because its like a emergency surgery it has to be done sooner then later because you don’t mess around so prayers will be nice. I don’t know what to think right now I think I am still in shock I always had a feeling something wasn’t right and when I found out I had a cyst I thought they would have to remove the cyst NOPE they aren’t even worried she said besides the uterus looking at her everything looked and felt fine but won’t know intill the results come back. Have a good weekend all l.
Hi Bill And Sue and All,Weathers Picking up at last its still a bit cool here in Britain (England) but its getting there.Lovely to have a better angle on the horses Seeing much more of Zippy lately,love to have details on how many Horses you have and are there any boarders at the moment?Sorry if i am catching you at a busy time but i am not sure when is not a busy time ?Is the arena getting any use yet? Perhaps when it is and the Aisle maybe the cams might go on again?Will sat bye for now to all.Best wishes Audrey.
I got some more cyst removed on my head I had 2 lumps that contained 2 cyst not as bad as the one that had 6 geez that’s just plain crazy I have more on my head but luckily with these they aren’t as big so I can leave them be for the time being I just have 2 large ones I want gone next. They aren’t huge like the rest but they are in a spot if I don’t get them now they will interfere with my everyday living like the first one. They check them all the time no cancer so far so good. Just wish I didn’t have these darn things.

I know how much the power of prayer works. We need it today. My cousin Mady Mae who i am sure you remember from updates who had the Brain Tumor has had a reoccurance. She went in for a stat MRI last night because she wasnt acting herself and they found a spot on her brain. They said surgery is inevitable. We dont know anymore
Happy Birthday Drew
It’s Cold out there brrrrrrr Haven’t really been on just checking facebook here and there. My Mom went back to work this week she been off for a month she is doing ok. I don’t know if I told you she had 2 hernias and her bladder was falling so they fix it all. I’ve been lucky so far I haven’t been sick this winter and after 4 shots in the spin the shots have helped my back. Now on to dealing with the arteritis in the knee I can get a shot but with the lymphedema they don’t want to chance it. I got a new OBGYN will see her next week I need one I have cyst in my ovaries they want to remove them but I have to see her first and see what she wants to do before they do anything. I want them OUT I’ve been dealing with enough. Well I hope everyone stays warm TTFN

My Charger for my cellphone for some reason stop working so I am without a cell phone till I can get a new charger or cellphone. Other then that everything is going ok. Have a good weekend all.
My mom’s surgery went well it was supposed to be up to 4 hours surgery it was just 2 hours and they did everything they had to do with no complications or anything so now she’s just recuperating I’ll see her later today
Could use some prayers for my mother she’s having surgery today they are fixing her two hernias and her bladder she had her ovaries removed last year and has been having issues so they’re going to remove everything else and to fix her bladder because it was falling and she has two hernias they are fixing today just would like some prayers that she doesn’t have any complications. I had an appointment with a dermatologist yesterday and I had a cyst type mole type skin tag on my boob for many years she removed it for me and she going to do a biopsy on it she didn’t like the look of it also she’s going to look into removing some cyst on my head. I’m just prone to cysts. I’ve had a couple removed already. Tomorrow I have to do a stress test and the next day never had a stress test I’m not too worried I won’t be able to exercise so they’re going to put some medication in me to make my heart go fast that’s the only thing that kind of worries me my doctor just wants to make sure that it’s healthy and also I’ll be having that ovarian cyst ablation soon not sure when it’s up to them sucks getting old.

wow I just realized I haven’t been on here in a long time. I don’t think there is anything new to report on my end. I am busy with work. I will be celebrating my 3rd year with the company on April 15th. I am working anywhere from 42 to 50+ hours a week. I love my job, the people I work with and the people I work for. I just turned 41 on November 5th. I celebrated a day early and went to see Garth Brooks in Concert at the Tacoma Dome in Tacoma WA. The BEST concert EVER. Garth did 5 shows in 3 days in Tacoma and then flew back for the CMA awards (Country Music Awards) then flew back to Spokane WA for 7 shows in 5 days. He got a lot of criticism for Lip Syncing his song “Ask Me How I Know” at the awards show. But he had a raspy voice. When he wasn’t performing at both Tacoma and Spokane he was also teaming up with local sports teams and holding a kids camp
Happy Halloween Everyone!!!! Sorry I haven’t been on much hope everyone is doing well. I just resign my lease with my apartment complex I have been living here 8 years.

I started my Christmas shopping this year I am going to tone down some I have some extra bills I have to pay and everything has increased FUN NOT that’s life *L*. Hope everyone has a good day TTFN.
Looking a bit wet Bill i see today,no sign of Zippy at present or for that matter anyone except Frosty,not being no the same time scale i miss seeing you all about as i tend to be looking in when you are all at work (sorry to say).But i wish you would put the main cam back at its old place as it gives a better chance of catching some activity in winter as i used to watch you throwing in the Hay off the small vehicle and a bigger area to see across the fields with the Dog running along too,Thanks Bill for your hard work sure the Horses are glad you sure are fantastic with your cams wish the ones in Britain where half as good as the ones you have,just shows what a genius you are.Best wishes Audrey
Sorry Bill but i am still not seeing anything and i tried what you said but no luck can you help please?
Sorry I was having server issues. Moved this to the new server…
Thanks Bill for the Reply (and will not mention politics)is it me Because the Main Cam is not coming on last twice and still not seeing Zippy is he on some other Cam somewhere else please. I watched the hay being moved from the Arena i have not seen any horses in arena or elsewhere for a while or i might be tuning in at wrong time due to the time difference but i keep watching here in England i love your country best wishes to you all,By the way did i mention i (years ago)owned an Appaloosa gelding but i am 62 now and have health issues which stopped my riding and enjoyment of horses.Thanks again to you all.Audrey.
We moved zippy so now the main stream will be his camera. It is working now.
Cameras must be off
Do not mean to be a nusance Bill but i am still missing the Zippy Cam and main cam too,can i ask you what you think of President Trump?if thats not too personal i often wonder how Americans are dealing with all the new things going on,wish you all well speak again i hope.Audrey.
Sorry. We keep having wire issues in the barn here. Must be mice or something chewing the wires. I am in general a conservative, but not a big fan of Trump. I don’t really like to talk politics and I think most Americans are pretty sick of it all right now. The main stream is back up.
Thanks for the update!!! Always good to hear what’s going on with you, Susan and the “kids”. Our news … Brent is getting married at the end of September!!! He’ll be 27 in October. He’s marrying Taylor, whom he met his sophomore year in college and started dated a year after that. My mom and I are driving out to Lincoln, Nebraska for the wedding. Mom is doing great for a lady in the middle of her 85th year!! Both my sisters (Suzanne & Linda) and their husbands will also be flying out to the wedding. We are all very excited for this momentous event. I’m doing well — just finishing the 7th year of my relationship with the most wonderful man and love of my life Michael and could not be happier so far as that goes. My health issues (COPD) continue to plague me with great limitations on the physical activities I can partake in, but Michael and I enjoy our Saturday night karaoke get-togethers with a wonderful group of like-minded friends at the local Eagles club, plus time spend with his 2 “kids” and all his grandchildren. Always have warm memories of Saddlebrook and the Thiel family and I wish you all the very best!!
Hi Can i ask please what has happened to all the WebCams i can not see a thing now and i do so look forward to seeing all the Horses and Bill and everyone.?
Sorry we had an internet issue here. I think something chewed our main wire from the front of the white barn to the main switch in the utility room. Everything is back now. Sorry for the delay.
Thanks for posting the video of Joe playing French Horn in the Dvo?ák piece … not my favorite composer, but this one was pleasant to listen to!!
I had a dream the other night where I was talking to Joe about which classes to take in his last semester …. Life Is Strange at times! Ha ha
