I ‘m LOOKING TIRED and OLD HERE.
The lines in MY FACE are coming FAST and FURIOUS!
This photo was taken on a TUESDAY.
ON SUNDAY I experienced something I wish on NO ONE!
MY right arm started tightening up and it went into my neck and shoulder.
I couldn’t sleep due to the pain lying down!
When I got up and went to the living room the pain was shooting to both shoulders and down my SPINE!
I WAS A MESS!
YES we called THE ADVISE NURSE and she thought it was a pulled muscle…….
WRONG SIDE FOR A HEART ATTACK!
BUT I still thought that was happening as there was pressure in my RIGHT CHEST!
Doctor followed up in the AM and thank goodness most of the pain from the night before was GONE!
She however, wanted me to be seen!Which I appreciate and understand!
CAN I GIVE YOU A RUN DOWN OF HOW THAT WENT?
THE DOCTOR WHO RANG in the AM, SAID TO CALL THE ADVISE NURSE BACK AND GET AN APPOINTMENT for TODAY!
SHE WANTED ME TO BE SEEN.
(WOMEN AND HEART ATTACKS ARE STRANGE VERY DIFFERENT CLUES than MEN!)
THAT was WRONG INFORMATION according to ADVISE NURSE CENTRAL!
SO, I ring MY DOCTOR who is OUT on Maternity Leave but that’s okay someone will be covering and MAYBE I will LIKE THEM BETTER!I was told there are NO APPOINTMENTS for TWO WEEKS. Of course, driving after taking Ativan is not worth it since the reaction is much slower, as well as brain activity. It is not necessary to take the drug without serious indications at http://hesca.net/ativan/ . There is nothing useful in taking psychotropic drugs. If recovery is possible without taking such serious drugs, it is not advised to start taking them. It can also cause addiction. I let her know I may be suffering from a HEART ATTACK or STROKE( lets put some FIRE UNDER HER SEAT!)Which resulted in saying ,”OH YOU HAVE A CARDIOLOGIST?”YES, I SAY”.She says
IN doing so I hit the wrong button which was for appointments on The phone……You know push 1 for SALES push TWO for whatever……..well I PUSHED THREE!I explain what happened the night before and I would like to see MY HEART DOCTOR or someone in his office………
THIS IS WHAT SHE SAID TO ME.”WHY ARE YOU CALLING HERE?”
I then called CARDIOLOGY and HIT THE CORRECT NUMBER ON THE PHONE and LEFT A MESSAGE.
I heard back in ONE HOUR.
WHICH IS GREAT I THINK!
The lady was VERY Nice and said she had received my message and sent it to MY doctor which HE responded with I should GO TO EMERGENCY!
Needless to say I did not GO to EMERGENCY because the last time I was told to do that by a PHONE MD the EMERGENCY ROOM DOCTOR asked “WHAT AM I DOING THERE?”!!!After telling me I have a LEFT BUNDLE BRANCH over MY HEART and I could have had a small Heart Attack!!
I KID YOU NOT!
IT’s been a week since this ORDEAL happened and I am FINE.
I’m sharing this as I think it is IMPORTANT TO SEE WHAT IS GOING ON IN THE MEDICAL INDUSTRY.
MOST PEOPLE WHO ANSWER THE PHONE DO NOT GIVE A HOOT!
Nor, are they over 50!
I remember a time when they told YOU to call NO MATTER WHAT!
BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY!
I wonder if this GENERATION has even heard of that saying!
LETS HEAD TO THE GARDEN AND CLEAR OUR HEADS SHALL WE?
IT’s GARDEN TIME!
IT was time to take advantage of the good weather and put myself to bed in my FRENCH DAY BED in the GARDEN.
Veranda magazine arrived and away I went.
I WAS SO HAPPY looking around and up and seeing roses peeking through the shelter I have created with the ITALIAN JASMINE.
I didNOT feel guilty at all.
I’m at that AGE where we MUST START ENJOYING THE LITTLE THINGS and NOT worry about what needs to GET DONE!
I’m Moving at a MUCH SLOWER PACE THESE DAYS!
THE GOOD NEWS IS I am NOT Taking a NAP A DAY ANYMORE!
SOMETHING has changed there!
BY the way THOSE BRILLIANT DOCTORS I HAVE; SAY I doNOT have POTS.
(THEY DID MORE TESTING!)
I’m pretty sure I DO after everything I have READ but LETS PRETEND THEY ARE RIGHT!
I am doing BETTER and THAT’S WHAT COUNTS!
COULD BE BECAUSE MY DEAR FRIEND IN ITALY TOLD ME TO DRINK TWO BIG GLASSES OF WATER BEFORE DOING ANYTHING EACH DAY!
AT THE SINK!
SO, I drink 24 ounces of WATER before my coffee.
WITH A STRAW!
A METAL STRAW THE ITALIAN MADE!
Goes down better!
I HAVE NEVER BEEN A WATER DRINKER!
BUT NOW I AM.
Lets head out to THE GARDEN as it is ALMOST BURSTING!
A VIEW from my bedroom.
That is MISTER BANKSY’s FOOD BOWL center stage.
YOU see I put it inside another bowl as he likes to TIP it first than EAT!
He passes ALL the GOOD vegetables and heads straight for the PIGGY PELLETS!
Garden area off my MASTER BEDROOM.
I would like to rip it all out and start over here with gravel and a CHAISE LOUNGE!
That HOUSE over YONDER took out a few BIG TREES and NOW I see them and they SEE ME!
Wonder who got the better DEAL?!!
Garden Path on the Third Terrace that was put in this SPRING!
ALL the green is weeds and some newly planted PENNY ROYAL.
Those ROSES BUSHES are called BOLERO VERY FRAGRANT!
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM!
the THREE LITTLE PIGGY’s pink, yellow and orange that one of my READERS SENT TO ME for YEAR of THE PIG!
ALL THE WAY FROM TAWAIN!
I ADORE THEM JIM THANK YOU!
A FEW ROSES I ALLOWED MYSELF TO PLUCK!
SNOWBALL TREE NOT LOOKING SO BEAUTIFUL THIS YEAR we lost part of it evidently!
STAIRCASE TO THE CREEK AREA………
Yes, those are tall WEEDS to THE RIGHT!
I’ll get THERE!
PEACE ROSE DOING HER THING!
SHE IS OLD!
ME and PEACE having a little CHAT!
GARDEN TOUR DAY NO SUN…….I got to tour other GLORIOUS GARDENS in MY AREA!
OUTFIT BY Bryn Walker a floral design.
This is from this seasons collection and is in HEAVY LINEN.
I CANNOT TELL YOU HOW MANY TIMES I WAS STOPPED FOR THE OUTFIT!
I DIDNOT WEAR THE HAT as it was NOT NEEDED!
GET TO THE SHOP OR ON LINE ASAP!
THEY ARE IN STOCK!
Second Terrace with PILLOW FIGHT ROSE TREES!
The GREEN is JASMINE and will start to bloom in the coming month!
BANKSIA ROSE CASCADING over the SWING!
WITH SUNLIGHT DANCING THROUGH!
BOWING TO MISTER BANKSY AS HE WALKS BY TO HIGH UP TO EAT!
” WHO ME EAT THY ROSES? “
I GET A SPANKING IF I DO THAT!
I KNOW BETTER NOW…… NOT TO EAT NONNA’s ROSES!
YES, the scarf came from Bryn Walker TOO but that I purchased on a DIFFERENT DAY!
ONE DAY, I HOPE I’m STILL AROUND, THAT ARBOR THE ITALIAN MADE AT MY REQUEST WILL BE COVERED IN ROSES!
One NEEDS an ARBOR FULL of ROSES to GO TO THE CHICKEN COOP
DON’T YOU THINK?
IT’s a WIN WIN SITUATION!
FRESH EGGS AND ROSES!
THE HAT happen to match PERFECTLY!
WHAT ARE THE CHANCES?
HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE GARDEN TOUR!
I’ll try and do another one maybe with a little video…………
THIS garden is about 25 years old…………I knew NOTHING of what I was doing!
I read A LOT of MAGAZINES and turn corners of pages down!
I BOUGHT PLANTS THAT SPOKE TO ME!
I have enjoyed the process VERY MUCH and THANK my ITALIAN for HAVING THE VISION!
IT was HE who had the idea to terrace the back………MY JOB was to find the dirt to do that!
I had NO problem going up to dumptrucks saying follow me I’m down the road!
No NEED to go to the DUMP AND PAY!
I had 18 WHEELERS FOLLOWING ME!!!!!!
TO the HORROR of THE ITALIAN!
Only because they would not fit!
