New thread.


magpie said...

Good Morning, Steve....thanks for the New Thread....

Hot Hot Hot, hope the stormy weather just avoids Shepherdstown and NCTC altogether!

Have a Nice Day !


magpie said...

And Good Morning Eagle Pals !!!

magpie said...

Hallelujah Jo and all the Family Lennox, especially the Parents to be !!

I just read the Sonogram report on the prior thread


Sandi said...

Goodorming Margie! Thanks for the call over. Thanks Steve for the new thread!

I read that great news about Lori's last clinical day on FB - home stretch time for her!

Didn't Shirley say something about being without a computer and having to use Kathryn's? Maybe that's why she's MIA?

magpie said...

Best Wishes Everyone for a Good Day,
Thanks for the well wishes on
our Florida Family Visit, things are busy but going nicely

Prayers for Wellness all around

See Ya' Later !

God Bless Us,
Every One xoxox

Lolly said...

Good morning! Heading outside to water pots. 79 and going UP! Trying to save plants in this heat!

So very proud of our Lori. What a great nurse she will be!

Mema Jo said...

Happy to see this new thread mid week
Thanks Steve and also Margy I'm happy to see you stopping by here with such a busy schedule.

Lunch today with Jenny - Subway
Expecting phone call from gd coming up from Northern VA for a visit. Sure
hope she can make it... Miss her.

I already watered my outside pots, Lolly this early morning. Already 82° mid morning. Doesn't call for rain nos until Thurs. Time to cut the grass - Hubby went to donate blood - seems to always be a summer shortage.

Mema Jo said...


Excuse my caps......... stubby pinkie

JudyE said...

Good Morning Eagle buds I see a half eaten fish in the nest

Mema Jo said...

Judy - it has been there for about 2 hrs now
Adult brought in but kids haven't been around...........

How you feeling this morning?
Less pain I hope

JudyE said...

I am now able to wear a shirt YEAH

Mema Jo said...


Shirley's computer is still down
Kathryn said she had been using her's

Hunter still has camp

Told Kathryn to tell her mom we miss her


Kay said...

Good Morning Eagle Buds !!!

Thanks to STEVE for the spankin' new thread and to MARGY for the heads up !

Thanks to all for the good wishes on my behalf. I feel like this day is another big leap day ! Yeah !

Congrats to JO who is looking forward to the arrival of a little boy, ggc#13 !!!!

SANDI, the Jenni report from the vet is great for she's not a young girl after all. Once the dental work is done you may have a peppier pal !

LORI, LORI, LORI !!! You are an amazing woman and I hope you know how proud of you we all are ! I know your parents and family are in awe of this feat just as we are ! I thought of you often during my recent week in the hospital---talked to my nurses about their training---I had nothing but A-One nurses throughout and I know you'll be just like those wonderful, caring women who nursed me through a very difficult time.

HODA, what a difference 300 miles can make, eh ? Reminds me of my home State, AZ. 400 miles north to south and every kind of clime from lush forest to desert with it's cacti n' rattlesnakes ! Sounds like you're in a great place for a winter retreat rather than a summer vacation !

JUDYE, so glad you're able to put a shirt on now ! Progress !

SHIRLEY, I'm missing you, too !

JUDIE, your comments on all topics are always spot on and I enjoy your humor so much !

Love and prayers for all !!!


grannyblt said...

Good morning all.

Nest MT of birds when I checked a while ago.

Yesterday was very hot and humid here. Today humid and rain at 50% getting very warm too. Hope that cool weather Glo mentioned gets here soon

My brother left after breakfast for the next leg of his summer--a family wedding this weekend. He and wife may come back here on their way home. I'm not complaining, but I have been on company alert all month. Brother did all of my list of chores like helping me put the dust ruffle on my bed. And several other small things. It was nice having a day with just the two of us.

Happy that things are going along well enough for all of us.

Hope everyone has a wonderful day.

stronghunter said...

Okay, I got a phone call from Kathryn that I have been reported missing. Using my phone right now. Will go back and read your posts. Still don't know when my computer will be fixed.

stronghunter said...

Have been taking Hunter to Y camp every day. Do need to get state inspection and oil change on my car.

stronghunter said...

Have been watching the Dutch people show proper respect to the victims of the shoot down of the plane. Very sad.

Judie said...

Good afternoon.

Thank you Steve for the mid-week fresh thread.

Margy has a feather! Margy has a feather! Thanks for hollerin' at us.

Sheesh! Even too hot for the eagles to finish their food. 94ยบ here. Yuk!

Could we be anymore proud of Lori? Nope. She will now become our blogger nurse. Think of all the $ we'll save!

Shirley, so glad you are okay. Was about to call to check on you. How's Hunter doing at camp? How's his appetite?

Lynne's brother is a handyman? Well, how about his making a visit to the rest of us? Glad you had a good visit and hope he can return for another.

Jo, hope the Jenny visit and Subway were superb. I know the time with Jenny was. Also hope gd makes that visit.

Whay do I have this image of Hoda wandering around a desert? Must send Jufie to locate the nearest RCMP.

"Do" is did. Now to the morning paper and some feets up time.

JudyE said...

I see juvie in the nest

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

Wind is horrible at the nest. I see one juvie trying to hunker down. Reminds me of Spunky's storm.

stronghunter said...

Hunter wants me to go upstairs to play my Scrabble game. He says the noise bothers him.

Mema Jo said...

I have some rain in my valley
Still hot hot hot & humid humid humid
Very windy - but calming down now

HI SHIRLEY - Thank Kathryn for calling you !

VA GD just left after our dinner
Wanted to be ahead of the rain
Had a marvelous visit - so happy to see her!

Mema Jo said...

Lynne, I'm happy you got to visit with your brother and that he accommodated you so well with those hard-to-do-on-your-own household chores. Get another list ready in case they do stop back! lol

Mema Jo said...

Judie - did you get your new do?
I don't go back until 8/131 - didn't
realize it would seem so long - may need to make it a week earlier.

Michael at the beach with granddaughters.. Very relaxing for them. There is a pic on FB -
Fun in the sun

Mema Jo said...

Helen aka MITS is at the DC zoo camera this evening! Panda naps for both Bao Bao and Mei....... Not much
action tonight.

Hoda said...

Ha ha ha!
JUDIE the RCMP came to the hotel!
I saw them as I headed out for my walk!!!

All is good here.
A bit over four hours till Susan gets here.
We had a spectacular rain storm in the desert!
Second one today.

People in Kamloops are very friendly.
They do have Orchirds.
I are some fruit that was picked today!!!

When I checked the menu and the wine list at the two local restaurants I was considering, both carried a local winery listed as Kamloops.

I was looking for: organic, local, sustainable, gluten free, vegan, and also with local quality beef and lamb from the local ranchers.

The two qualified.
One was a bit more expensive than the other.
In American Standards for a good restaurant not too expensive.
Susan and David are buying me supper.
I decided to go to the not as pricey menu as the quality I believe is as high as the other one.

I made the reservation and they will check for the train's arrival.

I will go to evening yoga before I meet them for supper...

Hoda said...

So happy for LORI.
Blessed Be your new career LORI

JudyE said...


Mema Jo said...

Great visit by adult

JudyE said...

BELLE needs a napkin she has smutch on her beak

Mema Jo said...

Our adult is Plopped smack dab in the middle of the nest ............. lol

Mema Jo said...

Juvie came to visit

Mema Jo said...

watching the nest and I missed Jeopardy. Not any TV show to interest me this evening except maybe a 10:00 one.

I'll return later to say SED ♥

Mema Jo said...

10pm Going to close for the day

Hoda should be one happy happy person about now with her visitors.

Hope all is well with everyone
Tomorrow may not be as hot but humidity is probably going to be out there.

Jenny day tomorrow as she is off work
No plans - depends on the weather.

Goodnight to all

I ♥ Us

Hoda said...

So sad!
I am almost in tears.
Train delayed till 9:00 PM
I am eating supper by myself.
Susan is so disappointed.
I will still go to her hotel and get a hug and a short visit.
I have her Birthday present so will give it to her.
It is what it is.
Can not plan too much
Life always brings in surprises.

Life is good
She is healthy and safe.
What is to be sad about?
Go away tears

Janet said...

good evening all.

just checking in.
a lot on my mind, so gonna make this short. just let you know I am alive and well.

happy for a new thread. happy for you for friends.

thankful JUDYE is doing better.

thankful. period.

good night all f

Lolly said...

Hoda, so very sorry your plans did not go so well. Enjoy your short visit!!

Worked in the yard all morning. Really built up a healthy sweat! I was drenched! Sweating all the mean out! LOL

Suggested to Jack we go eat Barbeque for dinner. It was great! Have been vegging ever since.

Night all! SED

Judie said...

Hoda, so very sorry about the short time you will have with your sister. Still, a little time to hug and say you love each other is the important part.

Sandperson sneaked out and has already visited Jo. So, he's on the way.

Shirley, you have the patience of Job. It would have been Hunter going upstairs to avoid the noise. Hope you can get back for daily visits soon.

Please thank Kathryn for providing us the update. I forgot to mention that earlier.

JudyE, the shirt is progress. Please do not go back to work yet. Take the time to fully heal.

Yum, BBQ. Will be doing some chicken tomorrow night. Too hot to cook inside if avoidable.

Had a brief rain. Now just even more sticky and humid.

Eyes are getting tired. Night light is on. Restful sleep for all.

stronghunter said...

Good evening,

Judie, I did tell Hunter he could go upstairs because I was staying right where I was.

Been settled in reading a book this evening. Absolute Power by David Baldacci.

So sorry you were not able to spend more time with your sister, Hoda.

Enjoy your Jenny day, Jo.

stronghunter said...

SED, everyone. I will see you tomorrow.

Sandi said...

Goodorming my eagle friends.

Hoda, I am so sorry that your visit with your sister was cut short. Still, as I expected, you aren't one to dwell on the negative!

Judy, hope today finds you feeling better than yesterday.

Rain is in the forecast for all day today; maybe thunderstorms. Could be interesting since I am spending the morning working at the cottage tour and I'm helping with car parking which is an outside job! Outside in a thunderstorm? I think not! We shall see.

Prayers continue for Jo and Larry.

Have agreat day all!

Janet said...

just a quick good morning. hope everyone has a lovely day. light and love to all!

Mema Jo said...

Good Thursday morning to all ♥

coffee, breakfast, newspaper, comments read.. Overcast out there - slept soundly thanks to our sandman. Jenny day hasn't started yet.

Sandi - stay dry
Kids are already on the min golf course this morning - Good day to walk beach for shells and sea glass

JudyE said...

Good Morning Eagle buds

Mema Jo said...

GM Judy - Still cam was down earlier
It is up/running now & live feed i up
MT nest so far as what I have seen this morning - overcast and guess there was some rain last evening.
70° at the nest

Hope you are feeling more comfortable

Take care ♥

JudyE said...

sitting here with Ms Jordyn who is playing and its is thundering out side

JudyE said...

boy your temp there is cooler than yesterday I noticed cold front HUH

Judie said...

Good morning.

Overcast here as well, Jo. Have fun with Jenny today.

JudyE, how are you feeling this morning?

Going to do some puttering inside. Not much.

Cooler weather due to arrive. Hope it doesn't get sidetracked.

Off to get a sip more of coffee. BBL

Lolly said...

Good morning! Off to get the do done. Way past the time to do so!
Running errands as well.

Time to start getting ready for a Sunday afternoon party here at the house. Friends coming over to celebrate a couple of "0" birthdays. More fun!

Monday Laurel and the boys are coming for one or two nights. They are finally getting the new roof on the house after the spring hail storm. They are bringing the dogs. Oh that is going to be interesting. Cosmo has never been here. Taking him out to go potty will be a challenge as there is no fence. Luke stays close, Also, how is Skippi going to react? hmmmm??

Gotta run! See you later!

JudyE said...

I feel with my fingers How about you LOL
My dad would always say that Feeling lots better all scabby also which is a good signs I go to the dr tomorrow

Judie said...

Okay Ms. E, smarty pants. Listen, those scabs are the same as chicken pox scabs. DO NOT PICK OR RUB as scaring will result.

Lolly, are you Lollypaloozing? Bet you are. lol

I predict trauma in little Miss Skippi's future.

Some laundry done, vegetables washed for salad, kitchen floor Dirt Deviled. Putting my feets up.

Oh, in today's Local Living section there was an article about the woodworking shop at Winchester my choice for retirement community. I showed it to Darth and commented that IF we move there, he could start a "fix it" shop as they do not have one. He prefers repair rather than woodworking. Response: maybe


JudyE said...

Just got back from WMT to get my pills refilled I let Jordyn get one thing and she wanted to pick out something for school again I talked her out of it telling her she can't play with it till school so she got a Barbie lipstick kit with purse
She wanted to buy this clear acrylic back pack loaded with note books,binder, pen, pencils,crayons, markers and well everything need to start to school for 19.97 Probably wouldn't have needed all it so happy I talked her out of it
She asked for a nap and I said yes
Tomorrow she is going to stay in camp I ask her if she wanted to come over and just hang and or camp she said camp I can't blame her

CarolAnne said...

Just wanted to say Hi to all with wishes for a continued good summer.

And offer Congrats to Nurse Lori. Such a varied occupational life she has. Once settled in as a nurse I hope she becomes "Writer Lori" and writes about her life & life choices.

Take care all.

JudyE said...

so good to hear from you
Hope all is ok with you and we are so anxious to hear from LORI once school is over

grannyblt said...

Good afternoon eagle buddies.

On my laptop and can't get live camera. Probably my computer.

Did some shopping this morning for some new undies. You know, the kind we all hate to have to buy. How come you can take 6 garments into the fitting room, all the same size and maker, and only 2 fit? Oh well, won't have to do that for a while.

Weather here is lovely. the temp at least 19 degrees cooler and the humidity much lower.

Today would have been our 50th wedding anniversary, but we only made 42. He was 21 and I was 17--good memories.

I hope everyone is having a good day.

JudyE said...

LYNNE I can relate to the fitting room ordeal I did that with bathing suits before we went on vacation all the same size just different styles LOL They say you can never go by sizes all the time different mfg makes a difference

Ms Bookworm said...

Hi, Gang,

Well, Ken went to the dentist at 11 am today, and he now has the "permanent" bridge as a "temporary" bridge until after our vacation. The dentist doesn't like the color match, and she doesn't like the shape of one of the teeth. I agree with her. I'm SO glad that she's fussy!!!
Ken's just glad that he doesn't have to go on vacation with a big space with no teeth!

I finally finished preparing Emma's food for while she's at "puppy camp". I truly appreciate being able to stay at Sis-in-law's timeshare, but I really wish it did not take so very long to make Emma's meals!
Between cooking the chicken, and the rice, measuring the rice for each meal, weighing the chicken, and dicing it up, it took about 10 or 11 hours to make 8 days worth of meals. They have to be in separate ziploc bags, labeled with Emma's name, the date, and which of the 3 meals per day it is. Sorry to complain--but Sis-in-law feeds Charlee commercial kibble, and is often so busy and rushed that she just buys a bag when she drops her off. Emma's food doesn't do well when frozen--it gets a bunch of frost in it, so I can't make it way ahead of time. We haven't ever been to Colorado, so it will be worth the work. I just hope we don't go anywhere for a while after this.
And bottom line, we get to see the kids again!!!!! Woo-hoo!!!!!

We leave from LAX (Los Angeles) tomorrow morning at 9:40, and fly to Denver. We pick up a rental car, and drive to Vail from there.
The kids are driving from Texas, leaving later today, stopping in
oh, where did they say?--Albuquerque, maybe--for some rest.

Hoda, sorry your visit with your sister will be shorter than planned. I know you'll make the most of the time you do have!

Lynne1, I'm right there with you! I have the same problem when bra shopping, also clothes shopping, and I no longer even own a swimsuit! The one I did have lost its stretch after a while, and I HATE swimsuit shopping!!!!
Maybe someday.

I don't know whether Ken will let me take the laptop along, so not sure when you'll hear from me. I think the kids are bringing their laptop, so maybe I can borrow it.

Lolly, I hope Miss Skippi can manage the dogs!!! Does she have somewhere she can get to that's up high? Jen's siamese gets on top of the kitchen cupboards or the refrigerator.

I don't have time to read back at all right now, so hope I haven't missed anything. ALL of you will be on my prayer list, and I'll be thinking of you! We return from vacation on August 1st, about 9:20 pm. Hope you all have a great week! I ♥ us!!!!

grannyblt said...

If you are a Facebook friend of mine and got a new friend request from me, please delete. Someone must have hacked my account.The real me has my maiden name in parenthesis (Dunkerley). I have reported that account and changed my password. Thanks to all who alerted me.

Mema Jo said...

Hi Lynne - I have the right one now - I did "Friend" you again and I was just thinking that I always had you as my friend - I got the right one now!

It is a blessing to have good memories, Lynne. I surely pray it had been a longer time together.

Mema Jo said...

Lori Said: Grad ceremony is a week from tomorrow!!! at 3pm.

That's 8/1/14 ♥


grannyblt said...

Yay Lori

Mema Jo said...

I had been sitting out on the deck
Beautiful weather this evening
No humidity whatsoever

Nothing much on TV
I may just play some solitaire

BBL this evening

stronghunter said...


Hooray for Lori!

QUIET, rainy day here.

Thanks for the alert, Lynne1. Will check friend requests on FB.

JudyE said...

YEAH for our gal LORI I am so proud of her

JudyE said...

Just got back from kids Had a nice time
As I was giving Jordyn a kiss good night She goes OMA can I change my mind I said why yes Jordyn on what She goes I want to come to your house tomorrow since its Fri I said most certainly I will pick you up as soon as I get done with the dr

JudyE said...

Seemed to be no sighting of our eagle family today I was home most of the day and also noticed Eagle Cam has reported only a cam shake also

stronghunter said...

Nice to see you on the blog, CA.

stronghunter said...

Tonight was pizza night at the Phillips/Cowger household. Hunter seems to have regained his appetite. I couldn't remember if I'd mentioned I would be ordering a pizza until he came down to ask if I'd called yet. While he was waiting for the order, he made at least one sandwich and got a big glass of milk.

stronghunter said...

Time for me to head upstairs. George is waiting for me. Funny when the cat comes down to tell you it is bedtime.

SED, everyone.

JudyE said...

NO SHIRLEY the funny part is you listening to the cat LOL

JudyE said...

Well I'm calling it a day
See ya in the am ☼ at Sycamore Sunrise Cyber Cafe

Shirley, it sounds like Hunter is his old self again by eating a lot again. Growing young man!

I am going to head to la la land

This week has passed me by - Friday
already tomorrow. I will keep my
Faith and carry on.

Hoda is home now - Blessed be her journeys.

Mema Jo said...

Goodnight to all



Rest well and peacefully

Judie said...

Evenin' all.

Shirley, glad you have your bedtime alarm clock. Hard to imagine a sandwich, milk, then pizza without exploding. That's a good sign that Mr. Hunter is doing just fine.

Hi C/A. Nice to see you stopped by.

Andy, have a safe and fun visit. Enjoy the vacation.

Jo, will be thinking of you tomorrow.

Judie said...

Sandperson has already begun rounds so be prepared to dent your pillows.

Night light is on. Restful sleep for all.

Lolly said...

I am ready to dent my pillow. Bring it on sandperson!

Night all! SED!!

Hoda said...

I am home and all is well in my world.
Thank you for the supportive comments...
Life is good and am very grateful.
Went to a terrific yoga class...
I think I have either bruised ribs on the left side or broken ribs on the left side.
Will see what the doctor says...
I was doing a yoga pose in Kamloops and I heard a crack and there was a sharp pain...
It was tender in yoga tonight...
Nothing to do for cracked ribs anyway. I just might ask for an x-ray to confirm...

Good night all.
God Bless Us All.

Sandi said...

Goodorming my eagle friends. nest looks MT but the cam shakes every once in a while so someone is in the tree.

CarolAnne, so good to see you on the blog.

Judy, glad to hear you felt well enough to go out last night. I assume that all kids now get the chicken pox vaccine, right, so Jordan can't get them from your shinglas??

Cottage tour was a success - spent the morning yesterday helping with parking cars at one of the houses on the tour - had a little drizzle here and there but no downpours. Spent the afternoon reading and napping with "the girls." Seeing more of Jenni's personality, which includes barking non-stop when she wants something. So she was introduced to a squirt bottle of water yesterday. She learns very quickly - now, when she barks, I only have to pick up the bottle and say, "No barking" to get her to stop. Also got her to run around the dining room table like Bella does with me chasing her, so she is starting to play. She is interacting a little more with Bella, though I have to remind Bella not to be so "in your face." It's all good - I am really enjoying Jenni and I think she is very happy with us.

Tennis at 8am, then there is a tennis social this afternoon/evening. In between, I need to get to the library to pick up 2 books - The Boys in the Boat (a non-fiction book highly recommended by a friend about a rowing team that trained and competed in the 1936 Olympics) and The First Phone Call from Heaven by Mitch Albom. Has anyone read either one?

Prayers continue for Jo and for Larry.

Have agreat day all!

Janet said...

good RED Friday morning

Wonderful news for LORI
Wonderful that JUDYE is feeling better!

A beautiful morning here.

Gal pals due to arrive this evening. I might be scarce for a few days.

After work, came home and assisted Tom and Olivia in removing the huge pieces of bedrock from around our pool. Tom had broken them up with the jack hammer and with the tractor and wagon, one cart at a time we took them away.

Pool was vacuumed, some time spent in it.

Didn't do a lot. Just tired yesterday and feeling so today again. I went to bed earlier and might just do that again tonight.

Everyone have a lovely day!

Mema Jo said...

This morning it is only 57.6 °F and it is the end of July. WOW! I could enjoy these crisp mornings all the time. What a way to start a new day - coffee mug in hand while sitting out on the deck watching all the birds and little critters having their breakfast.

God is Good all the time


Mema Jo said...

Well, Hoda I for one certainly pray you didn't crack any ribs. Ouch !

Lolly, the newest pics of your yard are spectacular.

Judie - keep looking for that special
incentive to get Frank moving - Great weather for a move - better then the winter months. Best wishes!

Sandi - have a fun day with tennis.
Perfect morning weather - may you have some sunshine in a few hours.
Happy to hear your "Parking skills" went well !

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

Good morning my eagle budlets. Thinking about and praying for you today, Jo. I love you much.

Prayer request: T-Bird is going to Bristol, TN this morning to have an endoscopic ultrasound. She has had Barrett's esophagus (Barrett’s esophagus is a condition in which the tissue lining the esophagus—the muscular tube that carries food and liquids from the mouth to the stomach—is replaced by tissue that is similar to the intestinal lining. This process is called intestinal metaplasia. People with Barrett’s esophagus are at increased risk for a rare type of cancer called esophageal adenocarcinoma) for a few years and on her last EGD, they found marked intestinal metaplasia at the end of her esophagus. They are doing this ultrasound to look at the deeper tissues to make sure there is no other pathology. A friend of hers is taking her. Not sure when we will get the results.

We had to choose between Roanoke, VA or Bristol, TN to get this done because no one around here does them.


Mema Jo said...

Prayers for Thelma's procedure - May the results show what can be done for healing........
Thanks Sharon for letting us know about this and get the prayer power started!

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

I was typing a podiatric (feet) report and the doc said: He is instructed also to keep an Eagle Eye on his feet. :)

grannyblt said...

Good morning all.

Sending prayers Thelma's way.

Beautiful day here --cool and low humidity. I hope it is so with you all too.

I am excited to announce that I may be moving back to TX next year! I lived in the Houston area for over 40 years, only moving to PA to care for my elderly Mom. Yesterday I received the news that my son-in-law has accepted a new job in the Dallas area. My daughter and the kids will remain in Anchorage for the school year so that the eldest granddaughter can graduate. LOLLY I will be asking your feedback regarding school districts in the area. Patrick will be working in Farmers Branch. The family love Alaska, but are looking forward to new adventures and having relatives on both sides of the family nearby. I want to spend time with the grands before they strike out on their own.

Mema Jo said...

Lynne - family is the best! Hopefully all will go well and you will head for TEXAS . Happy for you

Judie said...

Fresh Friday thread.

Come on over for some tea or coffee.

Thank you Steve.

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

This post is copied from Facebook. Lauren is Andrew's age and they went to elementary school together. She is such a sweet and loving person. Just don't really get it sometimes. I think she is at Duke University now, being sent there from the Cleveland Clinic. You know what to do from here. :)

From Lauren Brandon:

Please continue to pray for me today...I go for a heart catheterization this morning at 11:30. This heart cath is not your typical check-for-blockages heart cath, because I do not have valve problems or blockages. Many people probably don't realize, but all of my heart problems stem from a virus that I contracted over 3 years ago. Until that time, my heart was perfectly healthy.
This heart cath today will assess the pressures in my heart's chambers to help my medical team make the best decision about furthering my treatment.
I know I serve a God that is bigger than any virus, heart cath, or doctor. I thank Him for sending me to a wonderful medical facility, but most importantly, I thank Him for never leaving or forsaking me.
Be encouraged today...don't be sad for me. Let's all start speaking positive into the atmosphere as evidence of our faith that God will work this out! He's in control my friends!

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

Just got a message from Terri. T-Bird is out and they said they could leave in 20 minutes or so. All went well and looked good. They took a biopsy of the area in question and will let her know.

Hoda said...

All is good.
Ribs not cracked or bruised.
The muscles between them are out of joint.
Said no to pain medication.
I have natural anti inflammatory ointment.

Prayers for THELMA.
Prayers for the young woman too SHAR.
Keep us posted.

Exciting the possibility for a move to Texas GRANNYBLT

JUDYE glad you are a bit better.

Missing PAULA.

stronghunter said...


Prayers for Lauren and T-Bird.

Very nice weather in these parts today.

Had to take George to the vet's today. Poor kitty has thyroid problems and a bladder infection.

Please pardon the double post.

stronghunter said...

Hope your ribs heal quickly, Hoda. Wondering what kind of yoga you're doing, lady. Be gentle with yourself.

stronghunter said...

Lynne1, sounds like you really are excited about the possibility of going back to Texas. Keep us posted.

Hoda said...

Ha ha ha SHIRLEY.
A young Power Yoga instructor subbed an Alignment Based Class in Kamloops.
I modified but obviously not fast enough. I was still with the understanding that it was an alignment based yoga.
It was only the third pose... I caught on then that it was not, by then I had hurt the muscles between my ribs. Tore them doctor thinks... Six to eight weeks to completely heal. Keep on exercising is her recommendations. I refused her pain pills however, I will do with my herb ointment...
It is all good.

Hoda said...

Susan phoned from Vancouver.
They arrived on time.
We laughed.
She wanted to tell me how much she appreciated seeing me and my driving all the way up there.
It is all good.
I love my family.
