Viki Downer

Did you ever just have one of those days, months years where nothing goes right? I haven't been on the blog because my computer was in the shop for a week. I got it back yesterday. I needed a new hard drive and Windows re-downloaded. You know how you are supposed to back up your information? I didn't. I lost tons of stuff. I've got programs to re-download. One of my CD drives wasn't working but the technician couldn't find anything wrong but sure enough when the computer was home it isn't working for me.

Today, our one toilet was leaking. Hopefully, Ron fixed it. Then we found out my Mom's dog has fleas. We'll have to get some flea stuff. Who knows if we will have to bomb (not literally) the house.

Mom went for the sleep study test. She also had the oxygen test. We haven't heard any results yet but go back to the doctor on Sept. 12th.

We made arrangements to have the bathtub taken out and a big shower put in. The stuff is being ordered but we have no idea when it will be installed.

tomato thief

Some of our big tomatoes have gone missing. We couldn't figure out what was taking them. Tonight Ron was sitting on the back steps and yelled for me to come. Up in the tree, was a squirrel chomping down on a tomato. So, the mystery is solved. We found out who the culprit is. This is the first time in the 22 years we've lived here the squirrels have ever stolen our tomatoes LOL.

Spoke too soon

I probably won't be blogging much if at all. Mom ended up calling last night around 8 p.m. saying she couldn't breath again. We ended up bringing her back. We will keep her here until we figure out what to do. We can't keep taking her home and then turning around the next day and bringing her back.

Mom Update

It's been a crazy couple of weeks. When I last left off, Mom was here after going to the ER. We took her home the following Tuesday and by Wednesday morning at 5 a.m., she was calling me saying she couldn't breath again. She went back to the ER, where they still couldn't find anything wrong.

We brought her back over here. We took her to a therapist to see if she was having anxiety/panic attacks. It was concluded that she probably does have some anxiety issues but we needed to explore further that there isn't something physically wrong.

We went back to the family doctor and last Monday Mom had a stress test. Everything was fine with that. The doctor wants her to have an oxygen test and a sleep study test to see if she has sleep apnea. Someone was supposed to be calling to set these up but so far haven't. We go back to the family doc on Friday so we'll see what's happening.

We took Mom back to her home yesterday. We'll see what happens next.
