Busy week with more to come!

I know that a week officially starts on Sunday but I like to think mine starts on Monday. Monday's are by far my busiest business day followed closely by Friday. So when Friday rolls around I am VERY ready for my 2 days of rest! I guess most people who work feel that way. So this Monday was crazy busy! Tuesday was us up before light, driving (think crawling) into the Houston Medical Center for our annual Dr. appointments. We both see the same wonderful cardiologist, Dr. Robert Hust. Mom went to him too when she was alive. We have everyone there "trained" about our time constraints, RX needs, etc. and they schedule us perfectly for tests and such. They understand we only come home to Texas twice a year and drive 180 miles round trip for visits. But it is well worth it as the care is extraordinary. I do not have heart disease but I do have high BP which is managed. Every older person on both sides of my family do or did have heart disease, bypasses, heart block, heart failure, aneurysms, strokes. You name it, they have had it,  so I do my best to prevent it. Of course there are no guarantees. Charles has several Stents and a leaky heart valve and is managed well and doing great! We thank Dr. Hust and his team for it. Methodist Hospital is awesome. So after his stress test and Echo we both saw the Dr. (had lab work sent the week before) and we were deemed fit to keep on keeping on! We will get Charles' last 2 test results next week but expect good news. Why am I telling you this? I think many RVers do not establish and see really good Dr's that will follow their history and monitor them closely. Top specialists.  So if you are one of those, let me know, I have great recommendations for all kinds of doctors.
It was a long day and we got home late and I had most of my work to still do. So besides work, I also volunteered to help with registration and ticket sales for our Escapees Annual Fall celebration. So I have been doing that several days before  the afternoon Social Hour. Friday was Mammogram day for me in Humble. I have been going to the same state of the art women's facility at Memorial Hermann since 1991. It's important to create a history of films for comparison purposes. I have had 2 different "scares" of possible breast cancer and many biopsies. Last year I was told I could go back to annual screenings instead of 2-3 per year. So, my fingers are crossed again for good news. Then we went to Office Max for a case of paper and printer toner. We had lunch after my ta-ta pics at a fav Chinese restaurant in Kingwood, Oriental  Gardens. We have been eating there since 1991 when we lived in Kingwood. Awesome food and service! We had lunch with Charles' two closest friends since childhood. One lives in Sugarland and the other in NW Houston. It was such fun catching up! Johnny was the best man at our wedding and David a previous best man for Charles! We slept in Sat. morning then went to the SPCA Fall Frolic. Got to visit with all the precious doggies waiting for forever homes.  Our 2 boys are rescues. So many beautiful animals needing love. We took big bags of dog and kitty food to them also. From there it was La Casita for lunch and then the Livingston Trade Days. Tons of vendors and "treasures" but none that I couldn't live without, thank goodness! We did a lot of walking there and a stop at Wally World. Tomorrow will be the Pilot Club Annual Turkey Dinner fundraiser, a visit from my niece Terri and hubby Jim and our friend Valli Ann is coming for dinner! Whew! Oh yes, and our Fright Fest kicks off tomorrow with ice cream and ticket sales again for me. This coming week will be full too but with lots of fun thrown in! Have a great week!

  1. Hope you get good news from the mammogram. Love it when they say you only need one per year! Glad you're able to juggle the work life and still find time for fun. Enjoy life - you only get one!
