Raining and cool this afternoon here at Coffee Creek RV park. Thanking God for the rain - it will help to fill up the tanks, adding to the reserves. It had gotten so dry around here - with the reserves so low. There was talk about Santo and Mineral Wells being out of water before too much longer. So, yes - thanking God for the rain.
I can't say that I was all that thankful for the hailstorm last night! Oh my! It has been a LONG time since we had such a hailstorm! From pea-size to nickel-size -- but in this RV? Sounded like dinner plate size! Oh my!!! But out looking around this morning, the only damage we could find was that there were more leaves on everything than normal. Thank you God. --and we got an inch of rain just last night! Thank you God!!!!!
After working this morning, we were sitting here discussing what to have for lunch. Looked like a hot dog (maybe). A knock on the door - it was Miss Glenda. She had some goodies for us :). Brought us several packages of meat to help with Rick's protein - Thank you God, Thank you Miss Glenda! And she had a dish of baked spaghetti for our supper! Well, needless to say - that baked spaghetti didn't wait until supper! It jumped into bowls, ran into the microwave and we caught it on the table - had to eat it so that it wouldn't get wasted! LOL ... Oh and it was so good! It was a blessing not to have to fix something to eat, or figure out what we wanted to eat. Just to have something that I didn't have to cook! I love to cook - but I do get tired of my own cooking. We are so blessed to have Miss Glenda as a friend and a neighbor!
Rick is doing better. Wednesday at the dialysis center he weighed in at 280 - Thursday after the higher concentration of dialysis, his weight was 275! Friday it was down to 274 ... and this morning down to 273!!! Slowly but surely - and the nurse wants him to take the fluid off slowly, reducing the cramps and dehydration. Our main concern now is that his blood sugar is running higher than it has in 2 years. Mid to high 300's. But we are assured it is a result of the fluid overload, and the higher concentration of solution.
He is breathing better. Using his walking stick less - more just for balance now, not for strength. He said that his energy isn't high yet, but he is feeling more like doing things. Still struggling with being sleepy and tired. But sleeping better when he goes to bed! Please continue to pray for him.
I have a strained, pulled, torn, something muscle in my upper and outer thigh. I fell going out of the old house a couple of weeks ago. Felt the sciatic nerve grab - hobbled around a few days. Seemed to be getting better. Then, last night - was taking off the pants I had worn yesterday. Raised my right leg to bring my foot off the ground and out of the pants leg ... BAM! Felt like someone jabbed me in the upper and outer thigh on my right side! Spent all evening, and night, and day so far trying to find a comfortable place to sit, lay, stand, or walk. Wow. Something so simple to cause this much pain and discomfort. Amazing ... but not in a good way.
Going to fix a pot of chili tomorrow ...
And will begin working on Thanksgiving Dinner. We are having Dinner at the Texas Star - 1 p.m. Thursday. Going to share Thanksgiving with others here in the park. Looking forward to the food, the fellowship, the laughter. And hopefully a good football game ... :)
Well ... house ain't cleaning itself ... and I hear no little elves doing it either -- so, guess I will get back to it!
Hugs and prayers - always and forever!
