  1. Glorious, glorious morning out there !!!

    Have spent the past hour on the porch with my coffee watching the sun come up over the trees and glisten off the dew in the yard.. birds singing merrily, all is peaceful and quiet. LOVELY. I so love those early morning hours to myself.. Minnie curled up on my lap in my rocker.... pure heaven.

    Grace.. did you see many whales? What I would give to have been able to go along with you...marvelous.

    Sabby.. is the flight a go for today? Sure looks like it's shaping up to be a beautiful day !

    Well, my bed has been made, time for a refill on the coffee......:smilecoffeecup:

    Hope all of you have a super duper Saturday, whatever your plans may be !

    Good Morning Jnette!

    I'm up early too but see a mid-morning nap in my future!

    I'm on call this weekend So far so good. We have Baylor (12 hrs) on the weekends and they are usually pretty good about showing up. Hope I haven't jinxed myself by saying that!

    Later alligators.........

    Hey Sabby ! I'm soooooooooooo glad you get to fly today ! WONDERFUL! Can't wait to hear what dh had to say about his surprise!

    Well, Mutti's been fed and cleaned up, I've cleaned the bathroom, vaccumed and dusted the furniture, now I need to start a load of wash and hang it on the line.. can't let such a lovely day go to waste afterall !

    Glad you have nice weather for the flight Sabby.

    Hi jnette and Bedpan!

    Last clinical day done yesterday, so no more of that...ever, really, considering that I'm graduating in a week.

    I'm heading to work this afternoon (and need to check the schedule to make sure the manager didn't forget to include me).

    Also trying to give away some additional tickets to the convocation...plans have changed yet again and some people won't be able to make it, and I know there are plenty of classmates who need additional tickets.

    My dad's church is having it's annual pet blessing tomorrow, so I'll have to get up early and go and help with that. Just hope it doesn't rain; it never has, but the weather doesn't look encouraging tomorrow...

    Hello Dudes and Dudettes !

    Joe.. I'm glad your clinicals are finally over, I know you are, too !!! Pet blessing.. what a neat concept ! Maybe they can bless my sweet Minnie from afar? She has sure been a blessing to US, that's the truth !!! Hope the weather holds up for you.

    Hope the little guy's team wins, Siri ! Sounds like you're having another great weekend.. good for you !!!

    Well, a colleague just left after we did Mutti's dressing.. it takes nealrly 45 minutes to do...with all the taping and tegaderm and buttbalm and mesalt w-t-d... but it IS looking better. The slough is breaking down, nice moist and whitish now instead of dark yellow, hard and dry.. good fresh cappillary blood supply underneath.. good sign !

    Just gave Mutti her lunch .. tuna sandwich.. protein, protein, protein !!! And some grapes and goldfish crackers.. and fat free milk. As soon as she's done I'm headed out BACK.. White Russian in hand !!!

    Good morning (late) everyone. For me it's 2:15 pm. How are you all? I haven't been on for the last couple of days and I've been trying to catch up.

    Sabby, let us know how the flight went. I wish it was me gettin' that trip. It sounds like a wonderful present. My birthday is in November. See? You've got plenty of time to plan.

    Hi ya jnette. Sounds like you're doing good, though running around like crazy. Mutti is such a doll. I dearly love her smile though I understand that it's the other end that's bothersome. We used Bag Balm with good effect but that wouldn't work in the area you mention. Thirty years ago I whipped up 1/3 each of cold cream, lanolin, and zinc oxide as an alternative for A & D. It did good.
    As for Mini, she is already blessed by having such a wonderful family to love on her.
    Those pictures of your son...I wish I were a few (lotta) years younger. Sigh.
    I may sound like a lovable sad donkey but "Thanks for thinking about me." LOL I'll be seeing a NP Tuesday and we'll see where we go from there. The "sore" on my boob isn't as open as it was but is thick with a noticable lump underneath. I've been remiss in not having had a mammogram in a few years and I've not been doing breast checks. Now, everyone, learn from my lesson, ya hear?

    Hi BP. Enjoy that nap. Hopefully you won't get disturbed with any calls.

    Joe, I'm so proud of you. It's almost over. I think we'll all hear your sigh of relief all the way to AN.

    Siri, I love to go to a farmer's market. Everything is so nice and fresh. Now how come you didn't take me with you? Huh? Well, the least you can do is cook it all up for me. Yum. And make my coffee iced with cream and sugar, please.

    To any I've missed and to all that follow, have a wonderful God blessed day.

Is saturday.. is PARTYYYYYYYYYY!

    Have a nice beuatiful day all of you, enjoy, hug more love more, are so many woanderfull people around JUST to find them! I hope that I will not have problem with my shoes, lol

    Zuzi.. good to hear you sounding up and chipper ! :kiss Enjoy your beautiful day !

    Marilyn.....still hoping and praying for the best, my friend. Don't give up hope yet... we do wish you the best possible outcome. (((gentle hugs)))

    No, teh Butt Balm won't work on an open ulcer, but it will work WELL on those just trying to form, or pressure area on the bottom, or areas which might be prone to breakdown. So we'll see if we can prevent any more sores now between the air-flow mattress, the new breathable depends, and the Butt Balm. Keeping fingers crossed. The Mesalt w-t-d is working well so far, may take a bit longer than a plain old w-t-d, but it's kinder and gentler.

    Yes, those pics of Adam just made me want to be there with him ! Reminided me of my younger days standing atop of the Alps in Bavaria, Austria, and Switzerland... I do so love the mountains... AND the seashore ! I love it ALLLLLLLLL !!!

    Sitting outback listening to the waterfall and the birds... feels so good. I need to get a new hammock.. that's really what I need. Must put that on my priority "to-do" list!

    Jnette, I'm probably behind the times but what is Mesalt? I've only used n/s w-t-d.
