A day of running around

I was glad I did my weights and walk this morning. I increased the walk some distance and for the rest of the day I felt more energy than I've had for a while. If that's the case I think I will try to walk every day.

I went to Costco to fill up the fuel tank, and then to a camera shop about 11 miles away to buy film. What an interesting place! They have incorporated a Museum of Old Cameras into their store, and it is fascinating to see some of the oldies that haven't been around for years. There are also poster sized reproductions of pictures and portraits taken long ago. I thought of the folks in our blogger community who would really enjoy browsing in this store/museum.

I came back home - normally I would have been worn out from facing the traffic and the activity. I called Gladys to see when it would be convenient for me to come and visit her, and she thought this afternoon would be a good time as an old friend is flying in from Baltimore tomorrow to visit. So off to the hospital I went.

She seemed a lot better than when I saw her on Sunday, but evidently the doctors aren't satisfied with test results, blood counts, etc. She has been in the hospital for over 6 weeks, and I think they want to send her home soon. She lives alone and I don't know what she will do, although she has a network of friends in her neighborhood as well as former co-workers, and several grandchildren who live in this area. I asked if the doctors had given her a long-term prognosis, and she told me they thought she could make it to the end of this year. I'm not sure I would want to know that, although it might be a blessing to some folks as they could get their lives and belongings in order. She might surprise everyone and be around a few more years. It happens, you know.

So now I am pretty tired, but I am determined to get completely back into life as soon as I can. With three cameras I need to start recording people and places! Time's a-wastin'.


  1. Isn't there home health care there? Also, hospice for terminally ill, and there can be both at the same time. Her doctor should know. I did that the last years i worked, and wish i could have done it always.

  2. Yup... we need pictures!
