Sunshine and medical stuff

Our temperatures are back into the upper 60s and into the 70s! We even had a little bit of rain last night, but our area really needs a lot more, especially so we can begin preparing the garden areas. I can hardly wait to get back into the garden.

I am not a winter person. Period.

I know we’ll get a few more cold days here and there before Spring really digs in, but the change can finally be felt. Sunshine and warmer temperatures can sure make a big difference when you’re getting older.

Of course, when July and August roll around, we’ll all be screaming about how hot it is then. ๐Ÿ˜†

I’ve not been around lately as I’ve been dealing with one of my medical issues. I was finally approved for state medical insurance a year ago, only to have to wait on getting anything done until clinics reopened for regular business. And then I had several weeks of handling Hubby J’s emergency issues (there is always something going on with him medically). Plus, all the other things going on in our extended family in the latter part of 2020. All of that kind of left me sitting on the edge of waiting for my chance to take care of myself… which finally came about mid-February.

Without giving you “too much info” โ€“ you don’t have to stick your fingers in your ears, haha โ€“ I have a female problem I was disgnosed with over eleven years ago that I’ve just plain been living with for all that time as I did not have insurance (many thanks to ACA for causing me to lose the insurance I did have at the time) and could only afford sliding scale co-pays due to our income. Right about that time, Hubby J’s health and medical issues exploded, he became permanently disabled, and so my focus has been on him.

I’ve had two appointments with a GYN doctor who is wonderful! My Daughter-in-law A and oldest Granddaughter M really like her so I asked to be referred by my regular doctor. I was always told I would probably need surgery to correct the issue, but we’re currently trying an alternative. It may take a few weeks, but if it works out to not need surgery, so much the better. If I have surgery, I’d be out of commission for about six weeks. That’s a mighty long time to go, especially when I’m full-time caregiver for Hubby J and also backup babysitter for the two youngest grandkids. I’m hoping what we’re trying works. We’ve had to change the treatment twice, and it makes me ache by the end of the day right now. Hopefully my body adapts soon. On the plus side, it does help!

I’ve pulled out an old hand-sewing project I used to work on and want to start again. I will show it to you in one of my next few posts. It’s getting to be late evening and I’m tired right now, so will take photos in the light ofย  day when it can be seen better.

Til next time, everyone be blessed!
