So, it is October 1st and the weather folks are telling us that it will bit over 100 today. Some heat records were broken around Calif and hopefully we will go back to the mid to upper 80′s by the end of the week. Last time we had these higher temps in Sept. was in 1973.
Yesterday we had temps around 99 – 100 depending on what monitoring station readings you read. Seriously, I am really, really tired of the heat. Usually by this time of the year I expect a few cooler days to get out and about . … the cranes have arrived and it is still way to hot to go take a look at them. I still turn off the computer up here because the room temps hit over 85 and well that is just to hot really to take the chance of an electronic meltdown.
I have been dealing with a stupid ear infection for a month now. I unfortunately was seen by a ENT that was one of those docs that do not listen. Thank goodness when KRP called back the other morning to get yet another appointment and request a new doc (not always easy when they are a specialist) we found out that the doc is no longer there – can you say YIPPEE!!! The new doc was very nice and he listened and explained in terms even I could comprehend LOL. Another round of antibiotics – bleh. I have to time this set out. I take thyroid meds that you have to not eat so many hours before and after and this new med is to be taken four times a day with food. I have so many reminders and alarms (hard to hear) to remind me to take the new additional pill. Ummm.
I am going to adaptive PE three times a week and taking part in a Mock PT clinic on Thursdays at the state university. The PT students get practical on hands experience and we MS peeps get free PT – works for me. My friend Toni picks me up and we go together. At least there are two of us in the car as we circle and circle the parking area near where we all meet. We lucked out last time and found a space right out in front of the hall. the time before we ended up in no mans land. Now if we end up way out there one of the students will park and retrieve her car – nice.
I am noticing that many of same group people show up to the adaptive PE classes at the community college and programs like the one at the university. I am not sure if it is because they are aware of the programs via word of mouth or if we are a group that is determined to do all that we can do to help ourselves?
Oh yeah, I was kinda bummed about the death of Andy Williams but he sure had one heck of a ride on this earth. Here is a past post about our trip to Branson.
That is all I have for now.
