The fun all begins today as we expect our daughter to be here later today on flights from Rochester, NY. We’ll be picking her up at the airport later today. Then on Wednesday we expect the middle Tennessee gang to arrive… that’s Mandy & Alex and Sylvia. Then the rest of the crew will be here on Thursday morning. We’ll have at least 15 people for lunch on Thursday.
A friend sent me this video that I think you will enjoy if you like dogs and you like basketball.
Venous Thrombosis - That’s the name for blood clots that form in a vein—my current health issue in my left hind leg. I had some blood work done yesterday, and it seems the Coumadin has not kicked in very much, so they upped the dosage and want me to continue the Lovenox shots twice a day for 5 more days. I give these shots to myself in my stomach. Each 5 days on the Lovenox costs me about $745 because I am in the famous “donut hole”. Some of you out there are familiar with the donut hole.
My doctor tells me to take it easy and let the medicine do its job. I’d like to be on the go a little bit more than I am, but I’m doing OK.
Joke of the Day
Camelot was under attack by a large, fearsome dragon. So, King Arthur called upon his most valiant knight to slay the dragon.
Unfortunately, all of the horses were frightened of the dragon and cowered in terror. All other options exhausted, the knight found a one-eyed, arthritic Great Dane.
But, King Arthur took one look at the dog and shook his head. "I'll kill the dragon myself," he said. "I wouldn't send a knight out on a dog like this."
Sorry about that. That’s a corny joke!
