  • Nothing going on around here

    Last Friday I broke my foot, dropped a chunk of wood on it. Saturday foot in the air watching my best friend, dog die of cancer, this week selling a big part of my 19 year old buisiness, the real money making part of it, still trying to work selling due to health reasons. Other that not much going on around here.

        Life is about change, nothing living remains truly static. Embrace the changes, absorb them, make them a part of the mosaic of experience that make you who you are. I just retired and in the past have been put up from major damage needing surgery (4 times) lost dogs from old age or cancer (9 times) and sold businesses I really liked that were killing me from overwork (only once). I'm still here and reasonably happy (somewhat grumpy at having to repair stuff but it beats buying new stuff).

          Hang in there, man! Sometimes life sucks but I reckon the bad times make the good times that much better. That's what I keep telling myself, anyway.

            Thanks for the kind words, just needed to vent a bit. Just a lot hit at once.

                Three years ago my doctor told me I had maybe two years to live. Rainy season is just about over. Time to oil my bike and get some serious exercise.

                    Ssshhhh.. Don't tell anyone in his neighborhood, because there'll be some wack job that will shoot him in the head and when the cops come and arrest him, he'll say "Well, that's how you kill a zombie. What else was I supposed to do?"

                      Life can change in a second, mine did & you never realize how good you have it until your health goes. So all you healthy guys don't take it for granted, enjoy it while you have it.

                          I spent most of February and early March in a near Zombie state. Was feeling an occasional chill, headache and sniffles in early February. Loaded up with vitamin C like I usually do when feeling a cold coming on. I went down hard on Feb. 10th sick as a dog. Spent the next two weeks trying to keep down a half a piece of dry toast and water in the mornings and the other half in the evenings. It finally hit me in the chest and had a hard time catching my breath. Finally got some antibiotics for the sinus infection/pneumonia. Seems like I just woke up and it was March 1st and all the trees had leaves and everything was green. I couldn't tell you much of what happened during that month of illness. I was out of it. Had to drop one RA med as it caused a nearly constant nose bleed every time I blew my nose. I did well to get from the bed to the bathroom and back. Just now building back strength enough to walk a little in the grocery store and around the yard. Heart rate has been in the 100-115 range but BP is normal. Blood O2 was low at 90-92. Probably why the heart rate is up. I'm due to start new RA meds (shots) Wednesday after my appointment on Monday, if they give the go-ahead. I'm a month behind starting due to the illness.

                          I had my flu and pneumonia vaccines back in November but it sure didn't do much good. I hear there's new strain of flu and bacterial infections going around in this area. Doctor said that nearly the whole town of Lytle had it and they closed the schools two weeks early for spring break. Most kids were out with it too. About the only good that came out of it was I STOPED SMOKING! Went cold-turkey with the illness.

                            The current flu vaccine has about 50% effectiveness. That isn't very good although better than many in the past. It is a crap shoot when they decide what vaccine to make each year.

                            Also, if you regularly take the vaccine then do not stop taking it. They have discovered that those who do take it every year have a higher risk of flu if they miss it the next year.

                              That was the first time I've had the vaccines. My RA doctor suggested it since the RA meds I was taking then substantially disrupted my immune system. Before this bout, I can't even remember the last time I had the flu. Must be 10+ years or more. Maybe 3-4 since I had a mild cold. Whatever this was, it was no usual flu or cold.

                              I'll most likely stick with the shots every year now. They're free so what the hay.
