Here is the 1st Afghan that I have made just for Walt!! He has waited patiently.....well...sort of!! LOL This Afghan is huge! Of course, I had to make it over sized for my Walt. It measures about 7 1/2 feet long by 5 feet wide.....and HEAVY!! Of course, it has to be heavy, since I made it with double yarn! LOL And I figured out the color pattern using the colors that Walt chose....Hope that you like it!!
Well, it has been a while since I posted last....again, except for welcoming new Followers!! But as usual so much has been happening, yet so little.
As I have posted several times, my Neck has been killing me! It started on June 21st. I have seen 2 Doctor's here in Reno about it and neither one would give me an RX for a Muscle Relaxer because of all the Medications that I take!! The 2nd Doctor that we saw on Thursday, thinks that the Arthritis in my Neck is getting worse, so she gave me an RX for Celebrex and a sample of it to hold me over until I can get the RX filled. So along with the Celebrex, I have been taking Tylenol 3 (Tylenol with Codeine), and between both, I have enough relief that I can function.
I used to take Celebrex years ago, until they took it off the market for a while. Once it was put back on the market, my Neurologist didn't give me a new RX for it, but kept me on the new RX I had gone too. It worked, but I had to go off of it a couple of years ago too, because I was retaining so much water and swelling up so bad, that my Legs, Ankles and Feet hurt constantly. So I was taken off of it, which helped some with the swelling, but then my pain levels went up again. But we managed to keep them under control for the most part. Until recently.....
Walt is also concerned that maybe I slipped a Disc in the Neck, since it is almost 6 weeks now with no relief. So we will probably give the Celebrex a week to see if my Neck will finally calm down, and if not, then we will call our Internist to see if he will give me a referral back to my Neurosurgeon, to see if perhaps I re-injured my Neck....here's crossing my fingers that I didn't.
Oh!! And one of the things that I have been doing to help with my Pain-In-The-Neck, is applying an Extra Strength Creme Rub on my Neck. Which helps....but unfortunately, the other night I guess that I didn't wash my Hands well enough, after applying it before I went to bed. I rubbed my Eyes, and....ouch!! I had Mentholyptus in my Eyes!! Talk about weird!! I wasn't sure if I would call it painful, but it felt weird....I guess because of the numbing elements of the rub, plus the smell. Like I said, it was just weird. But to be safe, I flushed my Eyes with Water!! Walt made sure of that.
August is the biggest Month our family has for Birthdays. Just my family alone, not including friends, etc, we have 8 Birthdays, (including mine!)! My Dad's and my Grand Daughter Emily's Birthday is also in August. I guess this means that I have another road trip ahead of me....I need to go celebrate with them.
Yesterday, Walt and I spent the whole day in a Gun Safety Course. I was amazed at how well I did too! We had to shoot a target at 3 different distances to show that we could hit the target and not something else!! And I managed to hit the target right around the center of the chest most of the shots!
This Instructor was extremely through too. He teaches Law Enforcement Officers, etc, as well as Self Defense classes for women. And one thing that I want to bring up, since he told the other woman in the class and me....and I feel that everyone should be aware of is this.....he said that many times, a man will place a Cell Phone on the floor in the dressing rooms, and have it on record, etc. So if you are not aware of it, you will be recorded and on the Internet!!! So if you notice a Cell Phone on the floor, don't just assume that someone dropped it, kick it out of the way!!!
Well, I have so much to do, and as usual so little time to do it in. So I will go for now, but I wanted to leave with this Survey that I found on Andrea's blog tonight....Hope you enjoy it too. Till next time....
Aloha My Friends :)
Andrea posted this survey on her blog, and she got it from another friend, and I too thought it was a fun idea! I love getting to know people better.
