Birdz. Since you guys will have some weather from Florence, I suggest that you send himself out to hit the liquor store.

Re: The Rumpus Room


Lol, Cooter!

Well, I celebrated too soon. yesterday evening, the rehab center called with the results of the blood work they did right before I left there. They told me I had “critically” low sodium levels and to report to the emergency room. The hospital’s la work confirmed the low levels, and I was admitted. so I’m back in the hospital, getting sodium by IV. 😢

UPDATE: This is like monitoring the track of Florence; changes hourly.

The physician’s assistant just told me that I might go home today, IF Na levels rise to at least 135.

Morning, Rumpions:

Sorry about your low sodium, Birdz. I'm glad you're getting it raised, even though you have to go to the hospital to do it. Thank goodness you have health insurance.

I'm wondering about the kind of dog Hamlet was, Cooter. Could he make up his mind?

Re: The Rumpus Room


Good morning, all. We're at 55F and mostly cloudy skies, heading for a high of 65F and the possibility of afternoon thunderstorms. Still, it's better than being in one of the Carolinas.

I have puttering things to do today. I hope I can get them done before the serious rain hits.

Birdz, I'm so sorry you had to go back to the hospital. I hope you get to go back home soon.

Coffee, please, Tanya.

Hola!


Coffee, Tanya.

It's 70 and according to the radar, I should get a shower at least this morning. I just switched radars because I was suspicious. Yep. The one that I normally pull up shows stuff that isn't there. I'm going to change over to the one I used to use.

I need to putter around the house some if my legs will allow. Rough morning so far. I just went back and took meds. I'm adding Flexeril to my meds to see if that will help. I know that it feels like my muscles are maybe tensed when they are like this.

Sorry about the low sodium, Birdz. Hopefully you'll be back home soon!

Here's to Vicky. As a brother veteran, I'm opening the bar in her memory today. Ramundo, I'll have a Mimosa.

Vicki Yancey
American Flight 77

Vicki Yancey was on her way to Reno for a business conference but hadn't planned to be on Flight 77, which crashed into the Pentagon on Tuesday.

Yancey, a former naval electronics technician, worked for a defense contracting company and had planned to leave Washington earlier, but ticketing problems delayed her departure, her husband, David, told the Washington Post. She called her husband 10 minutes before the flight boarded, to tell him that she got a seat on the plane.

Re: Hola!


Good morning, all. I just got in after picking up my truck it’s running fine and I put four new tires on it. The tires I had on it were ten years old. I definitely got my money’s worth out of them. The truck was ready yesterday but I decided to pick it up after this morning’s walk and do a single trip. I’m glad to have it back where it belongs.

I have my annual blood draw with the VA tomorrow morning. Next week I will see my oncologist on Monday, my dermatologist on Tuesday, and my follow up to the blood work on Wednesday with the VA doctor. They are all routine follow ups. Still, I’ll feel better on the other side of them.

It’s not as warm as it has been in the afternoons and the mornings continue to cool down a little bit each day. The AC is running much less, a good thing. Open door and window time is on the way and low electric bills to go with it.

We all reflected on September 11, 2001 at coffee. The tone was a little more somber this morning. We experienced our common ground for a short time.

Coffee, please, Tanya.

Good luck with the doctors, Brick.

You'd think that I'd remember how to spell Vicki's name, but names are something I've always had trouble with. Bless her, at any rate.

Vicki and I lived about an hour apart. We made noises about getting together for lunch, back when we thought we had all the time in the world to do it. emoticon

Re: The Rumpus Room


Thinking good thoughts for Vicki today. The only other distantly personal connection with a victim was the brother of one of our English teachers at our high school. Of all coincidences of that day, both of their last names started with a Y. And her plane crashed into his office in the Pentagon. So incredibly sad....

Hawk, what an interesting question for your student to ask. If he's convinced that the Bible is correct and science is not, why is he in your class? He can just read the Bible and be done with it.

I just got home from a three-day state school board conference. What I learned more than anything else is how badly my walking ability has degraded just in the last year. There were no scooters at the conference, so there was no choice but to walk to sessions. And I had to walk between the conference center, hotel, and restaurants the board went to. It wasn't pretty. The phone said two blocks -- two minutes. It took me 20 minutes to make the two blocks with so many stops. Very, very discouraging....

Re: The Rumpus Room


Remembering Vicki and others today. The night before 9/11, Mr. Queue and I were flying home on American Airlines from Boston's Logan Airport to San Francisco. After spending several days getting our first-born settled into his first apartment in Boston prior to his sophomore year in college, we had spent several more days on Cape Cod, as a belated 25th anniversary observation.

We originally had planned to leave Boston the morning of 9/11 on a flight that ended up hitting the World Trade Center, but Mr. Queue decided we should leave the night before because he wanted to get back to work.

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and we took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.

Yes, it was a good conference, and it's always good for our board to have time to bond over dinners. One of the sessions I was most looking forward to attending was cancelled, but the rest was very useful.

The state Superintendent of Public Instruction spoke for an hour at the general session this morning, and she was very helpful in understanding how to navigate the horrendous changes the legislature is making.

Birdz, I'm sorry you had to return to the hospital, but glad they caught the low sodium level. A dear friend had a heart attack because her sodium level was too low. It's not a minor thing! Please take care.
