the Melons are delicious. My Daughter's bringing me fresh Zucchini and cucumbers and
her Tomatoes are just about ready. I never would have guessed she would show any interest
in Gardening but then, I guess my Dad would say the same thing about me.
I had a very good appointment with the VA yesterday. I had to renew my o2 prescription
and usually have to deal with one of those people who doesn't want to be there anymore
then you do and is just looking for the pulse ox to drop to 88%, and the sooner the better.
The VA has set up a new pilot program and are now assigning an RT to a couple of the
community based clinics. It saves on travel time and you have access to an RT without
having to travel to the Regional Hospital. The girl I met was very knowledgeable and took
the time to answer all my questions. My new orders say that I can sit at rest on 1 liter,
3 liters with normal exertion and sleep and 4 liters when walking more then 500ft,
when climbing stairs, etc... I'm so glad they finally approved the 4 liter setting,
I've been running out of 02 cylinders and the extra liter will allow me to have
more o2 delivered.
I had hoped to go to PR this week but the bills are rolling in from the Er and then the 20 visits
to the Special Procedures Unit. I'm not sure how I'm going to pay for all this yet but just cant
justify making another bill when I can't pay the one I have. Hopefully, I'll be able to get all this
worked out and back into PR soon but until then, I guess it's just me an my T/M again.
I hope your all having a good week,

I know you would like to get back to PR but you can do well on the TM and with some simple home exercises and I am sure you will do what is needed until you can get back to the formal program.
You guys are both in my thoughts daily and we all hope things will soon return to "normal" whatever that is for each of us.
Enjoy those fresh fruits and veggies! I have a bunch of Georgia Peaches I am enjoying presently and they are sooooo good!
One is that you do it. The other is that you continue to do it.

I rounded out July today with good numbers: 20 days working out at the gym or in my yard, for a total of 30 hours and a calculated 15,000 calories burned. And that was just the formal exercise, not to mention all the chores that I do that don't get measured. I've reduced my pred, stayed off antibiotics, stabilized my heart rate issue and generally feel pretty good. Now if I could just get a little bit younger.............. .
I hope your day is going well and will include plenty of activity.

Yum! It's that time of year......fresh fruits and vegetables at their best. Darrell, my grandpa was a tomato farmer and when we helped out we'd eat them straight from the field like an apple. Still warm from the sun. We had them everyday - tomato sandwiches, sliced on a plate sprinkled with sugar, and in all kinds of other ways. The Red Haven peaches I got at the market (New Era, Michigan) on vacation were divine.
