Talk about needing to catch up! I have darn near two weeks of catch up to do. I am so sorry.

Thursday, December 16 - This would have been my sister's 64th birthday. Happy Birthday, Diane. Worked on my novel today. Talked to Kurt Jesse for about an hour. Didn't hear from David.

Friday, December 17 - Today was the day for the CT scan of my chest. It took all of half an hour, much shorter than I thought it would be. Posted an erotic poem on Literotica (not under my name - there I am Hyades). Talked to David for half an hour.

Saturday, December 18 - Did some laundry and worked on my novel. Talked to David for a little bit. He is so unhappy where he is. Things are not going well for him there, he's running into all kinds of programming snags.

Sunday, December 19 - Finished up my laundry and worked on my novel. It's been a pretty quiet day.

Monday, December 20 - Worked on my book and waited to hear from David. I didn't hear from him today. I hope all is well.

Tuesday, December 21 - Worked on my novel. Still haven't heard from David and he's not responding when I try to reach him. I'm beginning to worry about him.

Wednesday, December 22 - Wrapped presents. Did some laundry for Kent. Gathered the trash. Worked on my novel. Wondered if David fell off the face of the earth. I heard from another "friend". Took Window updates.

Thursday, December 23 - Worked on my novel. Talked to the other friend for 2 hours. Still no word from David.

Friday, December 24 - Posted another erotic poem on Literotica. We did a little Christmas...we opened one gift each. Made a new friend in Canada named Stan. Talked to Jonathan the other friend for 1 1/4 hours. Still no David. I miss him.

Saturday, December 25 - We had Christmas here. Had a good one. The we went to Roberta's for Christmas dinner with her and other friends. We were stuffed! Good food. That girl can cook! Talked to Stan for 1/2 hour. No word from David nor did he show up at the door like I half expected since he wanted to be home for the holidays.

Sunday, December 26 - Brian was here with us and we re-did Christmas. We went to the Cheesecake Factory for lunch then went to see the newest Harry Potter movie. We had a very good time. Talked to Jonathan.

Monday, December 27 - Happy Birthday, Dawn! Can't believe how time flies. Hope you had a lovely day. Talked to Michelle for a while. Said "Hello" to Stan. Talked to Jonathan. Needless to say nothing from David. No calls, no chats, no emails even though I'd sent emails and tried to get a chat started. His cell is no longer working. I have no clue what's going on.

Thursday, December 16, 2010

I cannot believe how quickly time flies! As usual I'm behind again.

Thursday, December 9, 2010 - I made potato salad for supper tonight because we were having bratwurst and it didn't seem right to have one without the other. Baked a frozen mince pie. A favorite of Heather's. Talked to a dear friend for half an hour and spent 1 and 1/2 hours with my David on chat. Caught up my blog from last week. Worked on my website. Worked on my novel.

Friday, December 10, 2010 - Called Dr. Castellano's office to see if they had made my appointments for me and was told not yet. Talked to my honey 2 and 3/4 hours. Wrote a poem or two.

Saturday, December 11, 2010 - Did laundry. Talked to David 5 hours can't wait for him to get back to the states.

Sunday, December 12, 2010 - Worked on my novel most of the day. Spent an hour chatting with David.

Monday, December 13, 2010 - Worked on my novel. Hasseled with a creditor. Talked to Jesse for half and hour. Talked to David 4 and 1/2 hours...thank goodness for Yahoo Instant Messager.

Tuesday, December 14, 2010 - Went mall walking with Heather. Talked to David 1 and 1/4 hours. I know those of you who read this are probably tired of hearing about David...but just imagine what Heather and Kent have to put up with....lol.

Wednesday, December 15, 2010 - Trash day! Woo hoo! Talked to David half an hour. Accepted an answer to one of my questions on WebAnswers. Worked on my novel most of the day. I have an appointment at OSU Ross Medical Center for a chest CT scan at 7:45 a.m. (ugggg) on Friday of this week. Doesn't that sound like fun? As to the ultrasound of my neck not scheduled at this posting.

Thursday, December 9, 2010

Catch up time again.

Thursday, December 2, 2010 - Worked on my novel. Went to Dr. Pattisons to pick up the two cd's he had waiting for me to take to my appointment at Ohio State Medical Center. We looked at them on the computer later that night. Talked to Jesse and Dave today also.

Friday, December 3, 2010 - Worked on my novel. Talked to Dave today. Posted a poem online.

Saturday, December 4, 2010 - Worked on my novel. That was it.

Sunday, December 5, 2010 - Worked on my novel. Talked with Dave for several hours.

Monday, December 6, 2010 - Worked on my novel. Talked to Dave. Went to choir with Heather and sang with them. Had a good time.

Tuesday, December 7, 2010 - Went to my primary care doctor as a follow up to the hospital visit last week. She told me I was healthy and that she and Dr. Pattison discussed my situation. Then she told me I could go. I had my appointment at Ohio State University Medical Center with the cardio surgeon Dr. Castellano. This was a 2 1/2 hour appointment. He said the numbness/tingling in my arms could have been a pinched nerve but the numbness/tingling in the left side of my face was a TIA (a mini stroke). They also pointed out that my tricuspid valve was leaking and needed repair. That was news to me. They want two more tests ran. A CT of my chest to see how badly the sternum is separated and an ultra sound of my neck to see of the cartoid artery is clogged. What a fun day. After the tests are done we will make a decision on what to do next.

Wednesday, December 8, 2010 - Had a problem logging on to Yahoo this morning. I tried it again and it worked just fine. Talked to my Aetna nurse for our monthly chat and I filled her in on what was going on. Then I talked to my primary care doctor and she needs orders from Dr. Castellano to do the ultra-sound. Next I called Dr. Pattison to find out why he hadn't mentioned the tricusped valve. He said I've always had it and that I hadn't gotten worse and it was 3 + which isn't bad. That's why he wasn't concerned about it. Collected the trash. We put up and trimmed our Christmas tree. Dave and I talked a little bit.

Thursday, December 2, 2010

Okay...have a lot to catch up on.

Friday, November 26, 2010 - Heather, Brian, and I went to Cracker Barrel for breakfast. Kent wanted to sleep...he has a busy work day. That was about it.

Saturday, November 27, 2010 - Didn't do a lot today either. Spent some time with my special friend.

Sunday, November 28, 2010 - Worked on my novel. Talked with my special friend. Twice through out the day I had the feeling of squeezing in my chest, then both of my arms would tingle (kind of like your foot waking up from falling asleep). The first time the squeeze lasted 2-3 minutes and the tingling 4 minutes. The second time 2 minutes and 2 minutes. I was home alone at both episodes so I did nothing about it except try to relax.

Monday, November 29, 2010 - About an hour after I got up the tingling effect was still going on on the left side of my face and down my left arm. Another hour later I told Heather what was going on and called my primary care doctor. She advised that I go to the ER. Heather drove me to Mt. Carmel west and I was admitted to the CIMCU (Cardiac Internal Medicine Care Unit) for observation.

Tuesday, November 30, 2010 - All of my tests were normal: brain scan, cholesterol, sugar, coumanin, and whatever else they were checking for. My cardiologist told me that my split breastbone (from my open heart surgery almost 4 years ago) was still not healed but was spreading further apart. He wanted a surgeon for a consult. Through this all Heather and her friends, and my David have been with me and a source of comfort.

Wednesday, December 1, 2010 - I was told by the surgeon that there was nothing that could be done to repair the breastbone, so I was being released. They released me and Heather and I headed home. While in the car my cardiologist called madder than ever he was not happy with what the surgeon had to say. He felt there was something that could be done to ease the pressure the spreading breastbone was putting on the nerves causing the tingling. So I have an appointment with a plastic surgeon for an other consult. This is scheduled for Dec. 7. Plus I have an appointment the same day to see my primary care doctor. So that has caught you all up to date.
