Talk about insanity, today makes day 7 where we’ve had a long period of time without water. As I’ve said before, the infrastructure here is crumbling. On Monday we reported that out water supply was leaking. It’s still leaking.
Today is a plus day. My Knees are feeling much better! I can’t express what a difference this makes in my life. I have a great deal of difficulty moving because of the problems in my back and Diabetic loss of feeling in my feet and legs. Today I’m able to move around a bit.
Charlie is having great fun with his new friend Sam (a 1 year old Golden Retriever). They chase each other in the dog park and love playing with each other. They both have learned to put their entire heads in a large container of water. They’re a real hoot. When Charlie comes home he’s completely exhausted.
I got to see my doctor and he gave me Kenalog (cortisone) shots in my knees. I’ll hurt from the injections for 2 days but Ibuprofen should take care of the needle pain. Overall today is a plus day. My Pancreas is going to atrophy according to the doctor. He said that once that process is complete, life will not be very pleasant.
Today is a minus day. I’m in a great deal of pain. My Pancreas is doing it’s usual thing but the pain in my knees is off the charts. I’m having difficulty walking & trust me, that’s no fun. I texted my doctor about it yesterday but haven’t received a reply.
This afternoon we’re going to see my Sister to see my Sister and help celebrate her birthday.
I’m having a plus day. I’ve “borrowed” this system from my good friend Liz. A plus day means I’m doing the best I can and that given my limitations all is well. A minus day means the opposite of a plus day.
We were able to borrow a friends golf cart and I was able to make the rounds and visit with friends. I forgot to take video but will try and remember the next time. Charlie met his new friend Sam (an 11 month old Golden Retriever. They went in the dog park and had a great time playing. It was so much fun to watch! Sam would try and flip Charlie with his nose and Charlie fit perfectly underneath Sam and would just mess with him.
It’s UNBELIEVABLE! We actually have all utilities working this morning. I’m so anxious I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop <LOL>.
Yesterday I had an incredibly bad pain day. Today, now that I have all my pills in me my pain level is a 7 and I’m doing okay. I have plans to try and clean-up my desk and go to my favorite website Goulet Pens.I’m a fountain pen fanatic and am always looking to see what the latest pens are. Brian and Rebecca Goulet do a fantastic job and even have a great You Tube channel
The good news is that we have water. The bad news is that the Internet is down. I continue to assert that the infrastructure of Gold Canyon RV & Golf Resort is falling apart. The “Resort” is over 25 years old and other than replacing bits and pieces, there has been no substantial work done to update the infrastructure. Four hours later the Internet was available.
I’m also finding that people were my friends as long as I had a “positive” attitude about the “Park” but want nothing to do with me when I speak the truth. Believe it or not, Facebook has caused me to lose friends. Because I took the action of removing all the members of the “Park” from my Facebook page, they no longer want anything to do with me (how petty).
Because of all of the above I’m in excruciating pain! My pain level is 10 and I’m quickly losing the will to live.
Today marks the 6th day we’ve had no water for a period of time. We received a notice saying the water would be out at 9:00 AM. We received the message at 9:20 AM. Fortunately the outage was short.Gold Canyon RV & Golf Resort has never acknowledged any wrongdoing in this six day process, and, as far as I know, never brought in a professional company to fix it.
I had 2 very severe Pancreatitis attacks last night. During the first one my body went completely rigid and in addition to the Pancreatic (10+) pain I had cramps throughout my body. Fortunately the second attack wasn’t as bad and I was able to fall asleep afterwords.
I’m still struggling with WordPress (especially themes). If anyone could offer help I’d greatly appreciate it.
Jeff has returned from his Nephew’s wedding in IA. He was very ill while he was there but is getting better by the day. I survived his absence thanks to: Mom, Pete & Naomi and Keith. I learned that if this happens again, I’m going to hire a full-time daycare person to be with me. Pete & Naomi helped-out with Charlie (our Bassett Hound) the first few days and then he went to Grandma’s where he slept most of the time.
For those that don’t know, I’ve made the decision to stop seeing all Medical Specialists. I’m still seeing my Primary Care Physician (PCP) who is nothing short of a miracle person. I hav 100% confidence in him and he understands and supports my healthcare decision. I don’t have any plans of going anywhere anytime soon but I’m not going to stop any disease process.
Today is a good day in our Community because we have running water. I know that is s
