Thanks everyone for the well wishes and sympathy. Lordy, I am just frazzled out right now. Too much going on, too many irons in the fire. Here I thought Monday was going to be a free day, oh no, my Bone Scan is now scheduled for Monday. Be there at 8:00 for injection and go back at noon for the xrays. Tues & Wed is PT. I will make it tho and get it done. I try to avoid going to the shops on the weekends because they are mobbed and no handicapped parking is to be found. But, I just may have to suck it up and go anyway. I don't do well in crowds and I darn sure don't do well in traffic. True story, several yrs ago I went to the mall and sat patiently waiting on this car to back out so I could get the spot. Some little blue hair headed me off and took my spot!!! I promptly threw my car in park and jumped out and went up and banged on her window and told her to get the hell out of the spot that I had been sitting there waiting on-oh she knew what she did she had a tiny car and whipped it right in there. She moved her car, had she not, I probably would have moved it for her. lol. Sad thing is the ole gal moved around a hell of a lot better than I did. Can you imagine some lunatic banging on your window ranting over a parking spot, I sure did. That is why I don't do malls, lol. The only one brave enough to take me is my daughter-in-law.
The tornado and I made our sugar cookies and that was fun. he had quite a time doing that. He had baked cookies Tuesday with his other grandmother only they iced their cookies and he wanted to know where the icing was at. He got in trouble with granny. I had to run to the store and his Pawpaw was not watching him very well. He decided to take the colored sugar and feed it to the two dogs. Oh, it was a mess in both dog houses on their beds all over the dining room and kitchen floor. I ended up having to mop two rooms. So, he had to go sit in time out for a bit and think about things. I am sure he helped himself to some of the sugar from the way he was acting too.
After that little incident I was considering Stella Marie's idea of maybe turning to alcohol. Gawd, does it ever stop. I have got to scramble and get us on with supplemental insurance before the 31st, here I thought I had until the 15th. The whole idea of that deal has just made me sick. I just don't know what to think. I am really upset over losing the card before he turns 65 on the 15th because we were lead to believe we had until then, from the Nov letter from his employer. I had planned on getting refills the first week of January so that is out of question. I think I am going to have him call human resources Monday and see what he can find out. He is going to have to help me out with this little project. I will be busy with the Bone Scan so he can make a couple of calls. When I called United Healthcare today his employer had not notified them of us having to get the supplemental insurance with our Medicare. Apparently he can get a reduced rate set up thru the employer. I will believe it when I see it.
My tree looks just fine and it does look pretty according to my little wild man. Only thing is I do not have a tree topper on it, none of mine will fit. He was a little concerned about this, lol. I thought no problem I will make a big pompom bow and call it done, well my fingers will not move well enough on my left hand to do this little project so we have no topper and it is still ok. I will take the ribbon to my daughter-in-law and get her to make the bow for me. I did not think about this bummed up hand and arm.
I have done something to my hand and have no idea what. I have a large swollen painful knot on the outside of the wrist. I have put ice on it several times today to no avail. It almost feels like I have hit it on something but, I know I haven't. With that being the weak hand I would know if I hit it on something. My physical therapist told me to lay off of whatever it is I am doing with the left hand because I am over doing it and that is also causing it to swell, but this knot is in a different area. She says I am putting too much stress on the hand and arm.
It has been a long stressful day so I think I will go to bed and try to get some sleep. Hope everyone has a good weekend.
