just called. The doctor said that though she had 50% blockage it wasn't so bad as to be cause for extreme alarm at the moment. He is setting up an appointment for her with a Vascular surgeon who comes to the MOOTerville hospital once a week from Borges hospital in Kalamazoo. He will recomment the next step. MM
really likes her new doctor 'cause he actually listens to her and talks to her like an adult.
I go tomorrow to the VA hospital in Battle Creek (about 20 miles east of Kalamazoo. Nothing wrong, just getting a long overdue eye exam and a bone density scan. We ladies of a certain age have to start watching out for bone loss
We are actually supposed to start getting some above freezing temperatures the rest of the week
. I hope so. I know it won't be enough make any substantial inroads on all the snow but at least some of the icicles hanging from the Last Homely House
Mooterville actually had fireworks last Saturday as part of their winter/ice sculpture festival
. We hadn't realized they were going to do it until the first big boom went off. It was really beautiful as they set them off in the park across the river from us and with the trees bare of leaves we got a fantastic view. It was really extraordinary as the colors and lights reflected off the snow and sparkled through the icicles. I think it was much more beautiful that the display they put on for the 4th of July.
, at least Rosie seems to cover her "gifts" up. Lucy Lu does the dump and run
. Poor Mojo gets such a disgusted look when he goes to use the box and finds Lucy was there first. For all her size, Jabba the Hut is a very fastidious litter box user. MOOTers
, you would not believe how "FAT" Lucy Lu has gotten
. though nothing like Jabba. I am sure there is a petite and slim Siamese hiding in there. She is still as sqirreley as ever.
, great to get to know a little about you. Where do you hail from? I think most of us here are critter lovers. I have 3 cats and 2 rescue greyhounds. Lucy Lu the siamese loves Mavis the greyhound and tracks her down wherever she is and lays with her and pats her face. I am 61 and work in a library. I get to order the scifi and fantasy and graphic novels for the adult department
. Can't ask for better than that I guess. Especially since I get to read them first before they go out on the shelf
. As Vana
mentioned, many of us meet here in Southwest Michigan in June for a mini MOO
T. I live about 8 miles form Lake Michigan so we always visit the beaches, go out for a boat ride on the Star of Saugatuck on Lake Michigan captained by our all time favorite captain...Captain Kathy. We even take our favorite fellows along (our stand ups of Aragorn, Captain Jack Sparrow and Legolas and Gimli). This next June we are going to try for a sand castle building contest by building Helms Deep. Weather permitting we usually have a cookout and a campfire down by the Withywindle (aka Paw Paw river) behind the house. Nunke
plays a mean guitar and Ryan was able to bring his harp one year. Also have pennywhistles and drums for any so inclined to join in.
Well lunch is about over here and myself, Jill and the Video Queen will be having our book club meeting to go over the books we will order for next month. You all take care and I will be back Thursday!
Lots of love & hugs
Rhonda (Dr. B)
