Hello out there in cyberspace land. I have been home for almost one who month and I have been stuck on bed rest because my clots in my leg are back but not just in my leg this time but in my arms, neck, spine area, also in the leg I have never had them. Before I got on the bus to come home which was June 30 which was on that Friday but the Monday before I was in the hospital for a pain in the left foot which traveled all the way up to my hip when they checked it out they informed me that I had a huge clot in my upper thigh and wanted to make sure I was taking my blood thinner to which I replied “of course”. So they put me on heavy duty IV blood thinners and sent me to the other hospital in Bay County.
I stay there until almost 1 PM in the afternoon the next day before my daughter Misty could come to rescue me and take me home. Then I finished packing my bags and waiting for the time to leave to get on the bus and go west from Florida to Texas. I arrived her in Texas and my final stopping place at 3 AM on the 3rd of July. Talk about taking forever this trip was long and bad on the legs. I am getting to old to travel by bus anymore. LOL But at least when I travel by bus someone else can drive and I can take pictures and look around and enjoy the scenery or read.
I am getting cabin fever I have been to the doctors twice and the only thing they have really done is take a lot of blood from me. I haven’t got my medication upped or changed in anyway or have they done anything to check the clots. So here I sit looking at the four same walls. Now don’t get me wrong it isn’t like I’m complaining but I am going crazy here I can understand why some people what to go mean staying in bed. I do have a TV to watch, I can read and now I can get on my computer but I have only had it back a couple of days like since Tuesday. So I have had to do something. Thank you for those of you who has missed me and made those comments to those words when I have been able to make comments on your blogs or your page when you share on Facebook or Twitter. It is nice to know that I have been missed just a little.
I know that at times it has been hard for me to do anything the only thing I had was my phone and I don’t have enough space on it to put Facebook so I had to just deal with not being on it. But I’m back on it and here as well I will try my best to get healthier and stay that way.
Thank you again. I am so happy to be back,
Well first of all let me tell you all it has been a long time since I have been here and I have missed you. There is no excuse to why I have been gone so long other than at the beginning I was helping my ex take care of his Mom then there was other factors to keep me away. But now that I have completed what I needed to do for my ex and his Mom and my daughter doesn’t need me I’m going back home to Texas. I will be going back to Texas by the 2nd of July it should be an interesting trip and I will keep you guys up to date on the status as I travel the roadway.
It shall be fun to be back in the land of hot, hot and hotter. I know most of you are asking me what made me decide to go back to Texas in one of the hottest months of the summer knowing that it’s only going to get hotter well it’s really no different staying here in the summer we get in the triple digits here too however it isn’t quite as hot here really it is just really humid. In Texas the humidity where I live anyway is about 13 to 22 percent most days so if the temperature is 105 degree with the heat index it might be up to about 108 degree where as here in Florida if the temperature is 100 then with the humidity being 89 or 95 percent it would be the same temperature as it would be in Texas with the heat index of 108 degree but you would be dripping wet. There lies the difference.
There was a lot of changes in Florida when I got back this time the last time I was here was when Carl passed away in 2012 I came and stayed with Art and Mom for a month to get my head together and deal with the loss of my husband plus some other things too. I couldn’t believe all the things they had build up on the beach side of the road all the hotels, apartment buildings and how tall they were. They almost blocked all of the view of the beach and the water. I mean really it was almost building to building no way could you see the beach or water driving your car from road when I was stationed here in the late 70’s there was opened spaces you could park your car and walk across the street and go walk on the beach or just sit in the parking lot wherever you were and watch the water hit the beach. You can’t do that now. It is so sad. It is like a lost of era and a different way of life maybe a simpler time. But I’m sure when I get back to Texas somethings have changed there too.
I just wanted to let y’all know that I will start back to writing again now I know that I have missed doing it and I have probably lost a lot of my followers because I haven’t been here but I promise I will start being here more often I didn’t realize how much I missed it until I decided to write and let you know that I was going back to Texas and back to my roots to get my act together again.
Thank you once again for reading and letting me get things down. I really have missed you guys a lot. God bless you and I hope you all have a beautiful Summer.
Yesterday I left my house to come from Lynn Haven to Chipley to spend a couple of days with my daughter and my son in law. It was a short ride of about one hour because traffic was slow. We did a stop for gas and refreshments of course I believe any trip regardless of length one must stop along the way for something to drink.
This is the first time I have been to my daughter’s house since coming back to Florida 6 months ago. She lives in a nice place and she and my son in law have found a nice neighborhood to live in. It has some old houses on the block with a few wraparound porches on them. I love the old porches don’t you?
Tomorrow we will be going to a soccer game and then taking pictures of the little girl who doesn’t know she is to be queen in some form for the league. That is an honor for her and she will be very excited.
I will be taking pictures of the wraparound porch on my favorite house here in Chipley and we will be on the beach tomorrow for the game so I will have some pictures of the water which I will be posting also. Until I’m back tomorrow I will be wishes each and everyone of you a wonderful day and weekend.
