Ineptocracy ~ Doc Visits ~ Cows vs Remote Control Car ~ Jelly Donuts

Good 45º drizzling morning.

Just a trace of rain. Heard it in the night. So.............. another day I can't spray weeds or mow. Don't worry, I'll think of something to do!

Wayyyyy up in the pasture is a vulture sitting on a gate... he's been there a couple of hours. ??

..... and from my Idahoan son, Aaron....

So... yesterday I went into Medford (again) ... the cloud formations were interesting...

Seems like the month of May and now June are being renamed my "doctor months". I went for a mammogram last month, "something" was seen and a biopsy needed ... Not the most fun! But, that turned out ok.

Then got a tremendous pain in my back, right side at dimple, and after sitting on a heating pad for a day my doc saw me. New doc. Like her! She thought it may be kidney stones so took urine test. Came back with blood in urine. Geesh. Had a cat scan...

Turns out .. nothing in the kidneys.

Another urine test turned up blood still, so off to see a Urologist. He checked the cat scan and said I needed a Cystoscopy. In other words, he put a camera in my bladder! Sheesh! "Cystoscopy is a test that allows your doctor to look at the inside of the bladder and the urethra using a thin, lighted instrument called a cystoscope ". (No pictures here~! UGH) To quote the doc, "your bladder is perfect." Cool. I could see the image on the monitor. Interesting how many blood vessels are in there! Doc said not unusual to have blood (and in my case, only detected with a microscope and only 1 or 2 cells found) in urine. More common with women. So.... no cancer or anything. Yeah! Good to go. Now the next step is an appointment with my back surgeon (3 years ago had L4 & L5 fused)

to see if there is a problem reappearing. Sigh...... All of this is a pain in the tushie, but worth it to find out the old bode is ok! The urine blood thing had me over-researching and the scary part was possible bladder cancer! Incurable. I laughed when he said about the bladder being perfect, because when I had my colonoscopy, that doc said I had a perfect ass! Ha ha ha... now both the front end and rear end are perfect!!! :o) Ok, sorry.

If you haven't seen this remote control car and the cows... it's HILAIOUS. They are like a bunch of dogs.... Thanks Rod Johnson.....

Gabrielle Giffords is such a miracle! Very strong lady.
You are so nice. That creepy crawly thing on your thumb probably would not have survived here. Glad it was at your house. LOL
Those jelly donuts look so good. One of my favs.
Off to split wood, etc. Have a wonderful day. xo

Hi Sue. You don't know me. I found your blog while trying to find an old friend of mine that I lost touch with years ago, Steve Geon. Your blog was from last year, Nov. 17, 11, Steve's birthday. He was a police officer for LAPD and I lived in the Chicago area and last saw him when I visited my brother in California, years ago. He was living in Alhambra and later Upland, Ca I think. We first met on a cruise, kept in touch for a while and then lost touch. Is there any way you could put me in touch with him or him with me? My name is Carla. If he would like to contact me, could you give him my email address: If it is not possible, could you send me an email just to let me know? I would really appreciate it. Thanks so much!!!!
