I am knitting a shawl that is the most fun I've had knitting in a long time. Only issue is that my hands start aching and don't work after a while. Pictures when it is when I next post from my phone. I'm on the computer right now. I had 40 spam messages in the past 12 hours to delete. They have found me...
On Friday I finally got in to see the endocrinologist. On March 10 I
have an ultrasound of my thyroid. The doctor was somewhat dismissive of
my saying I want it out as it is causing issues with swallowing, some
talking (needing to clear throat or drink), and now breathing. Once he
sat me on the table and felt my throat he walked out and came back in
and ordered the ultrasound. No idea on timeline or anything else. Last
two ultrasounds the (different) doctors weren't concerned about the
size. It feels larger now, at least to me. It has been biopsied and
isn't cancerous so that shouldn't be an issue.
My 2 and 3 year
mammogram cancer checkup (I missed the 2 year one as I had not great
insurance) is March 25. I also have an appointment with an ear nose and
throat doctor on the 27th for another issue that is impacting my
speech. There was a reason I put a hold on longer distance trips,
needed to get all this scheduled and it wasn't happening quickly at
March 15 I head to Vegas again, and I may go a day or so
early to camp and explore the area of Arizona on the way up. March
18-25 my Mom's two sisters will be here and Mom will come down and stay
with me while we explore. Mom turns 89 on March 24. We will take her
to the Organ Stop pizza place to celebrate. We know how to party.😊
I am continuing to walk 1-2 miles around the RV park every day. When I
find myself spinning around in circles mentally, I walk. I get a lot of
exercise. An earlier physical exam found I do have breathing issues.
I had thought I was just getting further and further out of shape as
when I did do anything I was panting. Turns out I can't breathe.
Hopefully it is related to the thyroid issue. I do have an ENT
appointment to look at things from that direction as well.
I had the motor home work done. The brakes were replaced. The rest of the
issues are mostly cosmetic, except he says I no longer have tail
lights. There are some minor electrical issues, mostly related to the
the cable for the backup camera dragging a couple of years ago and apparently shorting out the speedometer.odometer panel. I know the fuse I need to replace now that my repairman
un-shorted the cable underneath. Hopefully that fixes the tail light
issue. I also now own a car tow dolly, which I bought from the same
guy. He set it up and verified I now have everything to tow the car.
Except for the whole tail light issue. Being able to tow the car with
me will make my moves between locations much easier. I admit I am
nervous about towing. I have towed behind moving trucks almost as long
as my motor home going cross country a couple of times, so hopefully
after getting on the road with it all I will be fine.
I have been
given the ok from the managers to move into a spot further back in the
RV park next year. It is on 'dog row' where folks with dogs have to
park. There are less than 10 RV spots in the dog friendly section, the
rest are park models. I said I want to get a dog so they gave me a spot
where someone (who has a dog...) is not coming back next year. I
have put out to the Universe that I want a dog. Small, quiet,
low-shedding, laid back personality. Basically a unicorn dog. My
neighbor in Payson has a dog that I'd love to dog-knap who meets all
these criteria. I'll ask her if she know what kind of mix Cindi-dog
is. I know she was a rescue, and any animal I adopt is always a
rescue. I'm in no hurry, I'll wait to find the right dog. Bosley will
not be amused.
