20 Things I Learned from My Recent Trip to Nash...

One of the assignments in the Writing101 class from WordPress was to write a list. While I did that assignment already, I have always been a big list-maker, so here is another list. In a few days, my wife will be having open-heart surgery at St. Thomas West Hospital in Nashville. Last week, we traveled More 20 Things I Learned from My Recent Trip toNashville read more »

The Heart of my Heart is Leaking

My wife is truly the heart of our family. Without her compassion and understanding, we would have never become a couple and I would never become a cat person. So, when I say hers is the heart of my heart, I mean this most sincerely. For many months, she has been struggling with fatigue, shortness More The Heart of my Heart isLeaking read more »

I Said I'm Back. What happened?

I Said I'm back. What happened? Damned cataracts happened. I have no problems writing posts with speech to text, but reading and editing is very difficult. I'm undergoing eye surgery, and until both eyes are done, I can't get glasses. As a result, I probably won't be posting for another month until the other is done. I can do some work on my phone. Tomorrow, I'm getting a tablet for my birthday. If the tablet is what I expect, I may be posting sooner. Even before this past week, I had plenty to say. Re... read more »

My Breast Cancer Journey Update ... July 25, 2014!

My Breast Cancer Journey Update. First, I thank all of you, again, for your prayers, and support. I am trying to remain focused; and busy. It is hard. Had a visit today with my primary doctor. I was told that I have an infection (he saw a little leakage on my surgery site). He said that it isn't necessarily anything that I did, or didn't do; that it just happens, sometimes. So, I am taking some antibiotics; otherwise, he stated that everything looks as if it is healing just fine. read more »

My Breast Cancer Journey Update ... July 17, 2014!

I have just returned from my first follow-up appointment (since my surgery) with my surgeon. She removed my staples; and, in a surprise 'very painful' move, the drainage tubes. Because she is like me, a very independent woman (that likes to control things regarding HER life); she lifted all of the restrictions, that she had imposed on me (with the exception of still 'NO DRIVING!"); where I can attempt to do things, on my own ... BUT, I had to promise to, immediately, stop, when I realize that I still can... read more »

Breast Cancer Update ... July 11, 2014

I did have my surgery on July 9th ... obviously, it went well; I am communicating with you, right now. I'm on my computer. Was very adamant about not staying in the hospital. They did keep me for one day, though. The surgeon, after making me agree to a whole bunch of restrictions ... no driving, no cooking, a lot of bed rest, home health care, etc., did discharge me, yesterday. Since being home, I have been doing a lot of sleeping ... I am just so tired.I am still in the early stages of recovering; I hav... read more »

July 2, 2014 Cancer Update! Now, Just Waiting O...

Well, blood work completed! Also, received a little more good news; assuming that the surgery go well, etc. ... and, that is that I will be able to go home the same day (of course, I'm supposed to go straight to bed). Previously, I was told that I had to remain at the hospital for, at least, one night. Then, a nurse would be coming to my house, every day, to check my vitals, change my dressing, etc. I figure that it is, really, because the Insurance Company informed them that they prefer to not pay for a... read more »

The Hospital Surgical Waiting Room Saga

Your loved one is having surgery today. The reason could be it was a planned surgery or it could be an emergency surgery. Regardless of the reason you find yourself sitting in the waiting room, it's hard. The longer the wait, the more you feel you have no control of the process. You may worry that something has gone wrong and no one has bothered to tell you. You may even feel the staff doesn't acknowledge you as an important part of the surgery. All you want to do is see your loved one's face and see for... read more »

Only a Minor Setback

Back to the Vet

Thursday night, my wife had to rush Yum Yum back to the ER, because her other eye began to show signs of developing Uveitis. They ran a full panel of tests and we are still waiting for the results. They also treated her eye and gave us eye drops,Prednisolone Acetate, a corticosteroid, to place on her eye every 12 hours. She is also on Doxycycline Hyc., an antibiotic. After the first treatment, her eye looks like it is back to normal and as of this writing, it still looks good. However, her blind eye has ... read more »

Maxine Lap Throw

My wonderful sister posted this on her Facebook page to help Yum Yum... As many of you may know, my brother's cat, Yum Yum, is in constant pain and needs to have her right eye removed and an implant placed in order for her to return to a normal, happy life. The surgery cost is such that funds need to be raised, as the veterinarian will not accept payments. In an effort to help my brother and Yum and Yum, I have made this Maxine lap throw and am donating 100% of the winning bid to Yum Yum's surgery fund. ... read more »

Yum Yum Update 8/5

Here's a quick update on Yum Yum's condition...she is beginning to come out more often, which is especially true when my wife is home. Although she has not begun to groom herself like she used to, she has begun to wash her face and clean her claws: I know, it doesn't sound like much, but this is a vast improvement over how she was just a week ago. Also, God has blessed us mightily in that a huge oral surgeon bill we were expecting turned out to be quite low, so the money that was set aside for that ... read more »

Yum Yum Update and Medication Definitions

Everything is about the same since the last update. She still spends much of her time under the table, but she does come out more often. Usually, about 6-8 hours after her medication, she will venture out and wander around a bit. It's really nice to see her more often! She still has not begun to groom herself, but at least she is coming out and interacting with us...even if it is for a short while. Here's Yum Yum in her favorite hiding spot. It's the table right next to my chair. I cleaned out a nice... read more »

Yum Yum Needs Your Help

Here is how Yum Yum looked a few months ago. Notice how both eyes reflect light. Here is what Yum Yum looked like a few days ago. Notice that the right eye does not reflect light. This is an indicator of blindness. I don't like sharing bad news and I particularly don't like asking for help, but circumstances have presented themselves which force me to do both. Yesterday, we took Yum Yum to the WestVet Emergency and Specialty Center to see a Veterinary Ophthalmologist. Today, we received the sad confir... read more »

The End of an Old Life and the Start of a New One.

I write this in the new role of full time writer. Officially, my retirement starts on 5th April and my 65thbirthday isn't until next month. But, for reasons I won’t bore you with, I finished employment on 21stMarch. Last week was supposed to be a holiday, to ease the passage from one stage to another. However, outside events intervened and I spent some of that in hospital and much of the time since in recovery. The knee’s progressing well and I’mnow able towalk unaided for short distances. It’s been a ... read more »

Surgery Day

I have already given the update that Bilal's surgery went well, and now the details.We got to Children's Hospital at 7:30am, and after checking in, were assigned a room to wait in. Bilal kept himself occupied with my iPad. In the waiting area And after getting a room.Bilal was a champ! The nurse asked us if he needed Versed, a medication to make him sleepy and relaxed, but he was fine, and didn't need any pre-medication. I think Mama was more anxious than he was!After he changed into a gown the Chi... read more »

Another setback

I took Bilal for his ENT follow up yesterday, after being on antibiotics for 3 weeks. The nurse practitioner and door evaluated him and decided that it was better to repeat a CT scan to see where he was at with the sinuses. Symptomatically he has been much better, not blowing any junk out of his nose, but he has still not his usual energy back. So we had to wait a while for the pre-certification, but the CT scan itself only took about five minutes. Waiting patiently In the CT scanner. He was so wel... read more »

Some improvement?

Where are we now? Zakir took Bilal to see the pediatric ENT on Monday, after yet another sleepless night. He had a CT scan does that basically showed that all his sinuses are infected. It figures. He has been constantly complaining about his eyes hurting, his cheeks hurting, hurting behind his nose, and so on. The ENT recommended sinus surgery. We don't really want to subject him to that, since he just had adenoids removed earlier this year and the recovery wasn't easy. So he put him on steroids and a th... read more »

Slow progress

Three days post-op and Bilal is making slow, but steady progress. Last night was actually pretty bad, with more fever, crying with a sore throat and neck pain, and this morning wasn't much better. But after much fussing and fretting and whining and crying, he reluctantly took a nap, and actually woke up feeling a lot better. He is still blowing out gobs of snot, has a terrible cough that comes and goes, but his mood is a little better. Otherwise he's been Mr. Crankypants. I don't really blame the little ... read more »


After a fairly good day at home, Bilal has been feeling puny this evening. Running a low grade fever, and complaining of neck and throat pain. That's to be expected, of course. But it's so hard to see him in pain and not be able to do much about it. After he came home he did fine with one dose of Tylenol, but this evening we had to get the prescription for Tylenol with codeine filled, and I gave him a dose of that instead. I hope it does the trick. Christina was such a great help today, since Bilal basic... read more »

A little unexpected

So you're probably tired of hearing about how often Bilal has been sick since he started school. But I'm hoping that we're nearing the end of it. As I mentioned before, over the weekend he started to get the junky nasal discharge again. And the hacky cough. I spoke to Dr. L, our ENT, yesterday; he suggested that we go ahead with the adenoidectomy. Apparently the recovery is not too bad, and kids will miss anywhere from 3 to 10 days of school. some bounce back quickly, others might be rather puny for up t... read more »

Body Pain Dilemma

Life begins at 40, what does it mean? What is your concept about this old cliche? Well, as we reach the age of 40 we feel so many unexplainable things with our body. It may be pain, hormones, excitement and strange feeling. I am not forty yet but am definitely heading there. I always complain [...] read more »

A Cool Find on Windows 7, and Some Good News

 ON TO THE COOL THING: I use Chromium, so there are a number of ways I can bookmark or otherwise tag a blog. Windows 7 will place the name of the blog on your START MENU. Well, it knows your default browswer, (that is, if Live doesn't steal your mail, and Bing continually pops up as your default search, and IE your browser.)I just love the idea. Instead of bookmarks, I can have entire columns, and when in the mood to read them, I just jump from my Start Menu, and I'm there. That's cool to me.As some ... read more »
