Wesley Chapel, Florida
We have some sort of low pressure system out in the gulf, so we’ve been getting rain several times throughout the day. This has been going on for about a week now, so we’re getting tired of it. So far nothing severe, so I guess we shouldn’t complain. This time of year, these systems can develop into a hurricane, so I guess we’d better shut up and quit complaining!
We took Mom to see the cardiologist on Wednesday. She increased the dosage on one of her medications, and it seems that it may be helping her with the “spells” she often complains about. I sure hope so. I am now thinking these spells may just be the acid reflux, so if we can find some relief from that, maybe we can get her feeling better. I didn’t see much point in visiting a cardiologist but I’m glad we did. The doctors all seem to be working together to figure things out, but it’s difficult because she can’t explain the spells, only to say they make her feel really bad.
I felt fine all day, but later in the day, I felt a burning in my chest and throat area, like bad indigestion. I was wondering if it was something I had eaten, but it got worse, then I started getting very nauseous and sicker and sicker. I was hoping it was something I ate, but after having chills, and aching joints, I think I might have picked up a bug of some sort. I spent a good 24 hours in bed. It’s been a long, long time since I’ve been that sick and I sure hope Mom doesn’t catch it. I decided not to tell her I was sick, because for sure she’d get it then. :)
Today starts a week of kitty sitting for one of our neighbors. They have 4 cats, a golden retriever and a Yorkie. The dogs went to a kennel. They intended on leaving the cats home with some food and water out and a family member would come once or twice to check on them. That worried me, so I volunteered us to watch the cats at their place. It’s hot in Florida this time of year and if the a/c should fail, they could come home to four dead kitties. It’s easier for us to take care of them, then for me to worry the entire week. Now they can go on their cruise and not worry. They are right across the street, so it’s no trouble to walk over and check on them, and the kitties are very sweet, so we will enjoy it.
Nothing much going on, nothing much to write about. We would love to be back in the mountains for the 4th of July, but I’m not sure that’s going to work. In the meantime, we’re keeping busy around here.
