Thank you to everyone who sent e-mails, text messages, or blog comments expressing concern about my recent medical episode. I’m happy to say that the antibiotics they have me on seem to be working because I’m feeling much better now. Even so, I didn’t get a lot accomplished yesterday. I started the day by answering […]

For quite a while now, Terry has been experiencing pain in her right elbow that is exacerbated when she tries to lift anything. At our last doctor’s appointment, they gave her a steroid shot and prescribed Prednisone tablets. She was instructed to take two pills once a day for a week and then one pill […]

Terry had an appointment at Pickens County Primary Care yesterday for an ultrasound on her thyroid, part of trying to figure out what was making her so sick a few weeks ago.

The last couple of days have been busy for us. Hopefully today things will slow down a bit. On Monday I had an appointment at Southern Eye Consultants in Tuscaloosa for a thorough eye exam.

On Wednesday night of last week Terry started feeling bad, with body aches and pains, and she wasn’t able to sleep well. By Thursday night it hit her pretty hard, and ever since then the poor lady has been miserable. She’s had a temperature of as much as 102o, says she feels like she is […]

Terry and I have been looking for a new primary care doctor since we first moved here, and we had narrowed it down to Pickens County Primary Care in Reform, about 10 miles west of us. We had our first appointments there yesterday afternoon and we were very impressed. Terry’s appointment was for 1:30 and […]

In yesterday’s blog, I said we were going to have a busy day, and I was right. We were on the go nonstop from the time we left the house until we got back after 8 PM. Our first stop was at the post office in Gordo to send off a couple of things, including […]
