Ouch, that kinda hurt

 Well it didn't feel good but the eruologist took the kidney stent out Friday. 
So now I've got to wait and see how long it takes for all the dust from the kidney stones to clear out.

I still do not have a lot of energy but I'm still plugging along doing what I can.
So Yesterday Sherry and I was out and running around and from the I can tell the energy level is coming along but it has been a slow process.

Oh I don't remember if I mention it or not Sherry our daughter had been down from West Virginia for the passed month to help Nancy with everything until I feel like I can handle it.

Thank you for stopping by and have a great day.

I'm still here

 Sometimes life gets in the way of the things that you do not plan on having and so it has with me.

Nancy and I always see the doctor or in our case was our care provider Jeff the that is a PA and is good as what he does but, in this case, an honest mistake?

He did the blood work on me and also wanted a PSA which showed blood in my urine.  This is a no-no for men.  I told him I used to have kidney stone that I passed every two years when I was younger that I haven't had in twenty years, but he wanted me to see a urologist about some spots on my kidneys.
Naturally that would raise some concern.

So after a few weeks with the urologist, he said it was not cancer, but I had three or four large kidney stones that I would not be able to pass until he did the shock wave and broke them up.
Wednesday was the day that he did the and he also said he was able to break all of them  having to do it in one sessions.

In the middle of all that Nancy and I both came down with the COVID-19.

So it's not been a very happy time around the home place but in all of it we are thankful for the way it has turned out.

Hope I can get busy with my blog once again.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a great day.

Happy New Year


That is my wish for all of you and thanks for sticking with me all these years.

Well, I have to say around the house last night that the old year went out with a bang and likewise the New Year came in, it lasted around thirty minutes of continued fireworks. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Anniversary 66

 Yes, Nancy and I are celebrating our 66th anniversary today.   December 31, 1956, a17-year-old girl and an 18-year-old boy stared life out together.
There were those that told us we were too young to get married and also said the marriage would not last six months. 

Actually, we went to Sioux City Steak House yesterday to avoid the crowd that would be there this evening. 

Today we will keep our family tradition of making cabbage rolls. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Merry Christmas

 Another year is winding down and we're very thankful for each year that comes and go.

I want to wish each and every one of you a very Merry Christmas and thank you for sticking with me all these years.

I have been having some medical issues that has had me going to the Doctor more than usual and it looks like going into the new year will be the same.

I hope each and every one of you stay nice and warm thru this cold spell.

Thanks for stopping by and do have a great day.

Mighty good eating.

 Whenever Nancy is feeling somewhat better than usual, she likes to fix me something special.


 This was the case this weekend.
One of my favorites a pot of potatoes, smoked sausage and large rigatoni's, with that and all the seasoning is mighty good eating folks.
The special part of was the rigatoni noodles is this was the old fashion extra-large kind which I haven't had in a few years.  I was looking around Publix and what do you know there they were on a shelf.  So now I know where I can buy them.

No, I did not eat the whole pot full.  Whenever Nancy knows I like a certain food she makes enough for us to have for a couple of days or longer.  

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Catching you up a little

 Well folks still doing the doctor things with going and getting checked out.  
First appointment is with the cardiologist Monday just a regular thig to see how everything is going.

Then Tuesday to see the caretaker which is a P A. I don't think there is enough doctors these days because when you go in to see a doctor its usually a physician assistant or a registered nurse, 

Last Tuesday I had to go in for a ultrasound on my bladder and kidneys, so I will see how all that goes.

I'm a little behind getting the Christmas stuff put up so that always takes a little more time as I get older.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
