Coconut Palms
 I want to be here, sipping a nice cold Fruity Fru Fru drink!!

Hey Ya'll,

First off, I would like to thank those of you who commented on my post from last night regarding my Pain Attack.  After seeing the pain that I was in first hand, and reading your comments this morning before I woke up, Walt had already called our Internal Physician and made an appointment for me tomorrow afternoon.

So tomorrow will tell if he thinks the pain that I felt last night, was indeed a Gallbladder Attack of some kind.  Our Doctor isn't one of those Doctors that calls for Surgery at the drop of the hat.  Nor does he call for unnecessary testing.  So I guess if he agrees that testing is in order, then it means that he at least suspects at least the possibility for the finding of Gallbladder Disease.  I will keep you posted.  I am hoping that it isn't something to do with the Gallbladder, however, I do hope that we can find out what is causing the pain!!

Now, for the Post Title.  I don't know how hot it is in your neck of the woods, so to speak, but it is damn hot here right now!!!  Because we are trying to save up money for our 5th wheel, we are not using the Air Conditioner this Summer.  I say this because if we use the Air Conditioner and running the Pool, then our Electric bill is usually around $1000 a month!!  Currently it is about $350.  Yesterday and today, our temperatures reached about 105 degrees.  Now, we can stand the temps up to about 92 degrees, but once it reaches the upper 90's or more, it can get to be pretty uncomfortable in the house!!  Today, my indoor thermometer showed my Office to be 88 degrees!!  88 Degrees in the house!!  So luckily, we do have the pool (still), and we really enjoyed it tonight.

Did I ever tell you how much I hate the heat?  I hate it with a passion.  If it gets too hot, I don't even like to venture out of the house (assuming the Air is on and the house is cool, of course!!).  So I may have to live in the pool all day, or spend some time in the local Mall this Summer!!  Hey!  I could be like one of those old folks that spend all day in the mall, sitting in a chair or on a bench, reading a good book.  Hey, now that doesn't sound too bad of an idea.  I may just have to remember this the next time we have a super hot day!!!  We normally have about 20-25 days of 100+ degree heat.  And this could be a VERY UNCOMFORTABLE SUMMER!!  Who knows, I just may be able to get some serious reading done this Summer after all!!  LOL

Well, I gotta go for now, as the Water Pill I took earlier, is starting to really work me now!!!  Can you say...don't bother to close the toilet bowl lid?  Yes, I am lucky, Walt is one of the few men on this planet, who insists on not only dropping the toilet seat, but the lid as well, after every use!!  Normally I do this without hesitation.  But on a night like this, I will be keeping the lid up, thank you very much!!!  But of course, after I had already taken the pill, I realized that maybe, just maybe, the Doctor might want me to provide a urine test?  Hopefully this won't change the outcome too much!!  EEK!  Oh well, live by the sword, die by the sword.  :)

Aloha My Friends  :)

The heat can be so uncomfortable...here in Vancouver we only get 2-3 weeks of serious heat and when it hits - watch out!

Happy to hear you are feeling better!

Thanks Nella! I wish that we lived in a climate more cooler. We are hoping to be able to move up to the Pacific Northwest someday soon.

I go to the Doctor this afternoon, so we will see what he says.
