FINALLY GOT MUM TO THE PC

I have been trying to get mum to the PC to update my blog but she has excuses, excuses, excuses!!  Hope I can remember all the news.  Mum had her surgery on April 4 and although she says it was much more painful than she expected, the doc said it went very well.  Some of the pain meds they gave her made her quite loopy and confused -- in fact, someone from the clinic at the hospital called her this morning and said she had med mum at the hospital!!!!!!!  mum doesn't remember her AT ALL!!!!  Also, Uncle Vic came to visit and she was so out of it he got quite concerned and called the doctor, who clarified that I would be ok!!!  I was staying with Jennifer at this point and she brought me to see mum at the hospital.  I was extremely glad to see she was ok and let her know with wet nose kisses.

Mum was at the hospital for a week then went back to the rehab center for another week and then finally came home.  Jennifer brought me home the following day.  Although Jen promised to come over to help finish with the unpacking, etc. she never showed up (she was sposed to come today but has not shown up!!!!!)  Also, she cleared out part of the living room, but had put all the stuff from there in the bedroom so that in order to get to the bed and bathroom, mum had to climb over stuff.  Even hanging on to furniture she still lost her balance a couple of times!!!!!!!

She finally got hold of someone to helpg her out, but it is costing an awful lot (which she cannot really afford).  She just reminded me that my GoFundMe page should still be up, so if anyone wants to contribute towards her and my expenses ....... (we still have major med for my Valley Fever).

Mum is recuperating quite well.  She went to see the surgeon the other day and he was really pleased that mum lost over 20 lbs since the surgery.  The surgeon and mum joke that if anything can go wrong during a procedure, it will happen to me.  Fortunately, this time nothing was other than he expected.  He is all the way over the other side of Tucson, but at this time, he is the only surgeon for that type of stuff that mum will trust!!!!!

We are still trying to catch up with all the blogs, but it is taking time!!!!  Mum's hands are bothering her too so she does not want to do too much typing (which, she says is the reason it has taken so long to catch up here).

So, without any further ado, we will close now

IT'S BEEN A LONG TIME

I barked this message to mum to type.

Cookie's mum here:

I finally got my laptop this afternoon so will do a quick post to catch you all up.  Unfortunately a couple of days after my last post, I had some very bad dizzy spells and ended up in the hospital on 3/22.  Then last Wenesday I was transferred to a rehab center.  Tomorrow early I am being transferred to a DIFFERENT hospital to have some surgery that had been scheduled a couple of weeks ago!!!!  I will be at that hospital for 4 or 5 days then back here for a few more days cos my doctor does not want be to be alone!!!!  Poor Cookie has been alone, but except for the first day I was gone when she was unable to go out, my neighbor has  been taking her out.  This has all been very upsetting for all of us.  I will try to do a longer post in a few days.

KEEP FINGERS, ETC. CROSSED THAT IT WORKS

Well the Geek Squad guy cam today, so let's hope it all works!!!!!!!  I think I may have to go down to best Buy anyway cos there are a couple of things I still need done, but I don't want to have to pay any more.  Can you believe mum bought the new desktop in SEPTEMBER and only just got around to getting it installed, etc.!!!!!!  Mum had to move a few things so that he could get to the new pc and the desk, so she was really hurting.  Also, the a/c was not working properly.  The office here was closed, but she saw one of the maintenance guys, and he came over.  Turned out it was a problem with the fuse box!!!!!  He fixed it so now mum is comfy and cool.  She was having a terrible time breathing etc., with it not working properly.  Mum also got him to put some of the stuff she had on the bed moved so she can get into the bed!!!!!!  Jennifer has not been over to help mum out, and if she doesn't come in a day or two mum says she will put a notice on Craigslist!!!!  It is so annoying when people say they will do something and then they don't!!!  Mum still cannot make outgoing calls, so she is going to take me over to Uncle Vics in the morning and use his phone!!!

Well, so far so good -- windows10 has not eaten the post SO FAR!!!!  We will keep going and see what happens!!!  Actually, there are a few more things mum wants to write about, but says she doesn't want to push her luck (whatever that means, bol)

So, ttfn and toodle pip

WE TOTALLY HATE WINDOWS 10

I know we sound like a broken record here, but windows 10 is driving me and mum batty!!!! It keeps eating whatever mum inputs for my blog so she has to reinput then it shows up!!

This was kinda rough week. Mum had a procedure done on Wednesday that was supposed to be "minor"; however, the nurses had problems getting the IV in and finally had to call the anesthesiologist -- who also had a problem with it, but did finally get it in. Incidentally while he and mum were chatting she said he asked her about her open heart surgery (done in 1961) and was amazed at how long mum was in the hospital and convalescent, etc. He said that now when someone has it they are home within a day or 2. Anyway, when mum came round after the procedure she was kinda hurting

WE FINALLY HAVE TELLY (SORT OF) -- AT LAST

The cable guy came this morning to hook up telly and intermutts. Well mum is having problems getting the one telly to work properly plus she is not getting the cable channels she is sposed to get!!! It is better than nothing, but still, she was told she would have certain channels and she's not getting them.

Jennifer came and spent 5 hours today and made a big dent in unpacking some of the stuff!!! Hopefully it will ALL get done soon.

BTW is there anyone else that would like to have a mini BAR down here in the Tucson area? I there are places for people to park their wheelie houses and also lots of parks for us to meet in the furs. Please let me and mum know if there is an interest.

I would also REALLY, REALLY REALLY like to thank Amber the Weinie's mum for spending so much time on the phone with her it has really helped her.

and mum realy HATES WINDOWS10!!! It is always screwing up her posts

WE ARE STILL HERE

I just noticed that it has been almost 2 weeks since my last post. I am sure some of you out there have the problems getting1111 your secretary (aka mum in my case) to buckle down and do a post. She really has no excuse except that she still is not feeling 100% and the doctor cannot figure it out!!! She has an appointment this afternoon to go over the results for the tests she had done last time she was there. This has happened before -- (before my time with her--bol) where she just feels like crap. Usually, watching a good program on the telly will help get her out of it, but we still have NO telly service yet!!!! Jen has been coming over and gradually getting stuff put away. Yesterday, mum came across a bunch of stuff that she brought over with her!!!! It is mostly letters and cards she received from her friends when she was in Habonim in London,from when she had her open heart surgery back in 1961!!!! There were a couple of things from a bit later, but that was mostly what it was -- she started almost having leaky eyes from some of it!!!!!

Anyway, hopefully this yuckiness will not go on for much longer -- she said that last time she told the doctor she was "sick of feeling sick". She had a different pcp then -- unfortunately, that doctor has since retired!!!!!

Oh, well, I just wanted to let you know that we were still around and trying to read your posts -- mum is still having problems with windows 10!!!!! So what else is new, huh?

will catch up with ya
