Aug 30 & 31

Aug 30

Monday was a nice day that turned a little hot before cooling off slightly at sunset.

The first thing we did today was to pick up Ella’s paycheck at the office.

Then we gathered up Annika about 9 A.M. and took her to IHOP for a going away breakfast. We will not be able to be there when she goes to the airport tomorrow.

We spent several hours sitting and talking while at the IHOP. Afterwards we went for a drive around the area (stopping to deposit the check) and then up to Saylorville Visitor’s Center (which was closed for repairs/remodeling). Another long sit down talk while at the dam site (not damn sight).

We got Annika back to Nathan’s around 12:30 or so. Audrie was sleeping on the couch. She wasn’t feeling well. Well, to be more precise, she was feeling in pain. Her spine and hips are out of alignment and she’s going through a series of adjustments with a chiropractor.

After leaving the girls (er…women), we went to Ryan’s for lunch. With our senior discount and the free drinks the tab came to $10.58. I’ll have to add them to our list of places for cheap eats.

While we were driving, Ella finally got a hold of her doctor about her mammogram results. Several weeks ago Ella made a doctor’s appointment because she was noticing some changes in her left breast (the one where she had had the lumpectomy). The doctor set her up with a mammogram. Sometime afterward she received a letter advising her to set up an appointment for an ultrasound. She did. After the ultrasound she received another letter saying that further procedures were advised. Of course this has been weighing heavy on her (and me). So, today she finally had a chance to ask the doctor what was going on. She was told that they want to do a biopsy to be sure. However, they think it is just calcification in the breast. So this Thursday Ella will have another biopsy done.

When we got home from Ryan’s we changed clothes and then rested for a short time before going to Perry for Lucille’s visitation. We spent some time there visiting with the family and friends.

Then we had to hurry home so that Ella could go to work. She was scheduled to work from 5 to 9. However, she had asked Lisa to cover for her until she could get there. Which she did about 6.

After dropping Ella off at the clubhouse, I came home to do some posting. However, I received a security alert that my computer was being attacked by some spyware. So I spent the evening running scans, downloading updated security software and scanning again. Ella was actually home by the time the last scan was done.

Early morning thunder loudly announced the arrival of rain. I worked from 8 to 2:30. Ella works from 5 to 9. So I’m spending the time working on my blogs (this one and the one with the story I’m writing.)
