This week we will find out what the specialist wants to do about her gall stones. She has not had as much pain as she did at first. This has been a blessing.
We had a much more peaceful week then last week. We were able to get some much needed rest.The week before we had a three hospital tests/consultations and two visits to the Doctor.
Thanks for your prayers!! When everything is peaceful in your heart you can really get through the Day or Night!!
Kansas City just beat Denver 33-19!!! We had not won a game since last Oct!! We had lost 12 games in a row! So this was Sweet!! I am so glad to see them play with some passion! We have many rookies who are learning and hopefully they are getting into the swing of things!!

My grand daughter in law Sofia was sworn in as a United States Citizen this morning! I know I said I would have pictures but in all the hub bub of getting ready with three kids and the oldest being 3 they forgot the camera!
Some one else took pictures during the swearing in and Jeremy gave them his E-mail address. Hopefully they will send a picture to them!
There were 41 people there to take the oath and 26 countries represented!
Kelly is baking an Apple pie for them and Karen is stopping by and getting red, white, and blue balloons to give to our new citizen!!! We our so proud of her!
In other news I had my test for Harding of the Arteries yesterday. The tech could not get a blood pressure for my ankles. Very low blood flow. So I am set for a consultation with the specialist soon. To decide what they will do. I will keep you all updated on this.Thanks for your prayers for us!!

Ok, I went over board and I put almost every one on my blog list on this new deal and I didn't check it out until I was almost finished and, OH MY GOODNESS!! It took 5 or 6 minutes to load my blog page!!!

This Sunday I am so Thankful for electricity and gasoline, water and a dry home. My heart goes out to the people down in Texas and Louisiana coasts who lives have been disrupted by Ike. It looks so bad and I know how hard it much be to be with out water and the AC in the heat.

I am also thinking about the people who live on the Texas Gulf Coast. It sure doesn't sound very good for them. I will be praying for you all who live along there.
Nancy had to go see the Dr. yesterday. She had an ear infection and her shoulder was hurting with arthritis. The Dr. gave her patches for her shoulder and I got ear drops that the Dr. prescribed for her. This cost a bag of gold!!! She is wanting my attention a lot today so this is going to be short!!

Yesterday was my day to go see the Doctor for my three month check up. Well, I had good news and bad news!! The good news is; the Doctors office called this morning and my cholesterol levels on everything the good and the bad were normal!!
My sugars were in the normal range too!! The nurse said the Dr was so pleased with my lab report. I am too!
Ok,my bad news was that my blood pressure was high and the Dr was very concerned. NO SALT or salt substitute! Just a little Mrs. Dash. I think I love salt more then sweets! oh, who knows I love them both!!
Remember I posted a while back,that I had Harding of the arteries. The Dr had a hard time hearing any pulse in my legs. It was very faint. So he has ordered a test on my legs called a articular Doppler Ultrasound . It can reveal blood clots in leg veins (deep vein thrombosis, or DVT) that could break loose and block blood flow to the lungs (pulmonary embolism). See an illustration of a stroke and an embolus.
I have this test next week. I just found the web site on Web MD that tells all about this Go here if you would like to read about it.
Well I am happy I haven't been adding to the problem that my cholesterol level was normal. Ok, enough about my health.
The weather is beautiful !! It was down to 50 degrees last night and it is so good to sleep with no AC and be cool with outside air. I love fall!

It is fall like out side today! 59 degrees this morning! Thank you Mary for such a neat award!! She said we could pass the Autumn Friendship Award on if we would like to, and so if you would like to have this adorable award please take it and pass it on to your blogging friends!!
I must hurry now because Karen is having a garage sale today. Our town has a garage sale in the spring and one in the fall and this is the day!!
She called a few minutes ago and said Nancy had sold 6.00 of her stuff so far and to Nancy that is like who knows 60.00, she is SO happy! We are going over there for a little while so I will end this up and say once again Thank you Mary, for giving me such nice awards.
Home from the garage sale! They did good! It did start raining so that about did it for this year!
Glo just called me and said to tell everyone "Hello" from her.
She is missing everyone and is working on getting a server. She said, "Thanks to all the bloggers for praying about Mike's brother."
I sure enjoyed talking to her! Nancy likes Glo and wants to tell her everything that she can think of that is going on! Glo is so nice to her and can interact with her with patience and kindness.

After I had written the last post,Karen read it and said,"Mom it sounds like you are just dying to go to Santa Cali Gon Days"!! So Kelly and Karen threw 2 wheel chairs in the back of her pickup truck and away we went!!
We sure had a good time! We were able to go through a couple of the huge tents that are jammed packed with craft booths! Nancy was able to buy a little pumpkin bell with little leaves around it. The girls pushed us around the square in Independence!
There were tons of booths with every kind of craft you would want to see or buy. They were also able to push us up around the courthouse where some of the best booth's are located. I was so pleased to get to be up there. In fact Kelly had her cell phone and took my picture by the old courthouse. When she gets time she will get it on the computer for me.
This afternoon she is teaching her first class in photography at the library. She has been working on this for quite a while and I think she will do just fine.
I think tomorrow I will be able to get out and about and do some bloggy visiting!!
