Well My Friends.....

An Echo in the Bone (Outlander Series #7) by Diana Gabaldon:  
Download Cover

This is the current book that I am reading, and I love this author!!

Hey Ya'll,

Well, in my last post, I was bragging about having finally reached 150 Follower's!!  But then, something went wrong again, and I lost Draz, AGAIN!  So I am back to 149 Follower's.  :(  But at least I know that it seems to be a glitch in Blogger itself, as Draz was not happy that I was dropped.  But at least I know that she is still reading me, but something just doesn't want her icon to stay with me...I do know that I have had some problems with Blogger lately, so it could entirely be from my end as well.  But who knows?

Anyway, I also mentioned that Walt had come down with an Outer Ear Infection in his left Ear, and we had to take him to the ER on Saturday, as the Prescription Ear Drops he got on Thursday, wasn't doing anything for him, and he was in constant excruciating pain!  Well, we had found out that the drops would never do anything for him, as his Ear Canal had completely closed up, so no Medication could get through!  Duh!

So the ER Doctor placed an Ear Stint in his Ear, so that the drops could seep through into the Inner Ear, and start working on the Infection.  But, his Ear just wasn't responding to the Drops, and by Sunday, his Right Ear was also Infected.  So today (as the Doctor's office was closed yesterday for the Holiday) I drove him in to see our Primary Care Physician, and he said that Walt's left Ear was coming along (slowly), but that now he has an Inner Ear Infection in the Right Ear as well.  So the good Doctor gave us enough free samples to last a week of an Antibiotic.  Yea!  Finally something FREE!!  Between my CT Scan last week and Walt's ER Visit, we are spending more money than we want to right now. 

So keep your fingers crossed that this works!!  If he doesn't start feeling much better by Thursday, I may have to cancel my Fill for Friday, and change the date out a bit.  Since driving over the Sierra's with Infected/plugged up Ears is not a good thing, with the pressure changes and all.  And we were planning on taking the Gold Wing, so that I could see how my Tailbone does on a longer distance ride.  I will keep you posted!

Oh, BTW!  I ordered my Kindle DX today!!!  And I downloaded the free software for the iMac as well, so that I could already start downloading books!  So today I already ordered about 10 Free Books!!  I can't wait to start reading on my new Kindle.  It will be so much more easier than carrying around a huge 900+ page book!  Which is what the current book I am reading is.  So now my kids know what they can get me for gifts.  A gift certificate to Amazon, so that I can start buying books!!!  This Kindle can hold up to 3500 books, so I doubt that I will ever use up all the storage. 

Well, I guess I better go for now.  Till next time.....

Aloha My Friends  :)

Thanks Nella!! Glad to hear from someone else that has the Kindle! Walt's Ears are slowly getting better, but it will take some time it seems...

I've had some weird blogger stuff happen recently too.. it is glitchy right now. Hope it fixes it's self. Hope Walt continues to heal!

Thanks Hey!

After I received an email from Drazil last night letting me know that Blogger only allows your icon to show up on 300 blogs.

I checked it out for myself, and it's true, apparently they didn't expect anyone to ever reach 300 blogs to Follow!!

They say that you can Follow as many blogs as you want, but your icon can only be displayed on 300 maximum!! So I need to check out how many I am Following. I am sure that I am Following at least 150 already!!

I wish I could get back to reading. I used to love it when I was younger, but now I just fall asleep. The extent of my reading has been blogs, which keep me awake.

Debi said...

I know exactly how you feel, but I think that I will definitely enjoy reading again!
